2/20 with Tracy...questions by Steph.

Q: If you could live in any period of time other than today, which would you pick and why?

A: 1950's. I am bizarrely happy in a cute little dress and a cardigan, cooking up a storm.

Q: The Partridge Family or The Brady Bunch?

A: Partridge Family. I LOVED David Cassidy and even had the Partridge Family Board Game AND recod. For those of you who don't know what a record is, get bent junior! :)

Q: Without looking, can you accurately recall your license plate number?

A:'s kinda silly and easy to remember.

Q: Do you have a 'green thumb'?

A: Nope. I have ONE houseplant that is thriving. Only one...

Q: Twitter or Facebook?

A: Facebook all the way! Though I appreciate the beauty of getting a tweet from Snoop and Martha Stewart at the same time. Classic. Wake and Bake & and update on a glamourous dinner with Valentino.

Q: Have you ever won a jackpot at the casino?

A: Yes, but embarrassed to say it was on the nickle machine at Treasure Island in Vegas. $120 big ones after I'd lost way more than that on video poker. Not a sexy story, but the truth.

Q: Can you play a musical instrument?

A: Yes. I play the cello, organ and was the lead triangle (yes, lead) in my kindergarten band. We were HUGE on the senior centre circuit. Our rider included cookies and juice. No red M & M's. Hardcore...

Q: Thinking back to childhood, what was your most prized possession?

A: Two -- My orange 3 speed bike with the glitter banana seat AND my Barbie Townhouse with the working elevator. It was pretty sweet.

Q: Ice cream cone or ice cream sundae?

A: I hated ice cream for a long time cause I slung scoops at Baskin Robbins. I like cones - sugar free Rolo ice cream on a plain cone. It's tasty.

Q: Are you able to sing O Canada in both official languages?

A: Yes. Proudly.

Q: Can you complete a Sudoku puzzle?

A: What now? Nope -- not a puzzle person.

Q: If you had an interest in holding public office, what position would you like to occupy?

A: Local City Council so I could fight for some common sense.

Q: School bus, subway train, zamboni or transport truck...which would be the most fun to drive? Which would be the scariest?

A: I would LOVE to drive a Zamboni! I think the subway would be scariest. Hurtling down a tunnel... no thanks! Lives would be lost.

Q: What one piece of music would you choose as your theme song?

A: All in Good Time -- Ron Sexsmith. I truly believe there's a need for rocky & good times and that the good times will ultimately win out. My favourite stanza -

"Hold your horses”, a willow tree cried
While the sun called to me, “Where’s the fire?”
“Run your course my feverish child,”
Came a voice from even higher
Inspiring me.

Q: Wheel of Fortune or Jeopardy?

A: Jeopardy. Particularly Rock 'N Roll Jeopardy. I would KICK ASS!

Q: I know you love to cook. Who would you be more nervous to cook for...Gordon Ramsay or Martha Stewart?

A: Gordon Ramsay. I would be frought with nerves. I'd be alternately terrified and attracted to him, would not produce my best risotto and he would throw it at me.

Q: What item do you wish you had invented?

A: Spanx

Q: Scrapbooking...yay or nay?

A: Nay - though I am working on a pretty cool project with set lists from that crafty?

Q: Finish this sentence: The end justifies the means when...

A: ...the means are justified in the end.

Q: Monkeys...friend or foe?

A: Monkeys are generally a foe. Have you seen that Youtube video of monkeys tearing about that car and luggage? Also, they throw their own shit. I'm not okay with that.
