Total number of books I own:
Officially — a gazillion

Book of Baha’i Prayers
My checkbook

Favorite Drink:
Mojitos — Yum!

Favorite Charity:
National Ovarian Cancer Coalition — I am the national spokesperson

Favorite Vacation:
I get a sort of “wonder lust” dreaming and thinking about my favorite vacation spots. I love the South of France and I love Northern California, especially Big Sur. I am dying to go to Morocco. When I feel over worked and exhausted, I opt for anywhere with a beach where I can just sit and read (anything but a script). About once a year, I throw in a family camping trip. Any chance I get to pack a bag — I will make a vacation out of it even if it just means going to the other side of Los Angeles.

Favorite Vice:
I have several — In-N-Out Burger, Mexican food, shopping and walnut brownies. Not necessarily in that order.

Five people who I’d like to see answer this survey:
Dorothy Parker, Oprah, Bono, John F. Kennedy, Jr. and my 5 year old daughter (15 years from now)
