Favorite food: T-bone steak.
Least favorite food: hominy.
Favorite comfort food: Toasted peanut butter sandwich.
Favorite item of clothing: my suede jacket.
Cause I most believe in: there are so many right now, with the state of this country. I'll say the welfare of children.
First thing I do when I wake up in the morning: thank God that I woke up.
Last thing that I do before I go to bed: hope that I wake up.

My epitaph: "Was that it?"
