1. What is your favorite photograph of yourself? When and where was it taken?
2. What is your greatest artistic or musical talent?
Not sure if I'd pick poetry or singing. I sing more often, but I am a better poet than I am a singer. Perhaps I need to write more poetry.3. Are you thrifty, or does money burn a hole in your pocket?
I am value-conscious, and when I set myself a budget I do not exceed it, but I am willing to pay for convenience and comfort and to use money to buy myself time. I don't think of myself as thrifty, but I am not extravagant.4. What is the last new thing you learned?
Um. Fact or skill? Fact - that Kevin Youklis is Jewish. Skill - how to make pretzels. Damn good pretzels, too.5. What are three songs that you count among your lifetime favorites?
Hallelujah, Leonard Cohen (and this is my favorite version, by k d lang)6. Do you wear lipstick? Any special color or brand?
When I Was A Boy, Dar Williams (I could include about five Dar songs, but this is the one that made me fall in love with Dar, and the video is gorgeous)
