Saturday 9

Saturday 9: Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?

1. Have you ever been in a situation with a lover where you did not know what tomorrow would bring? Yes. Every time I've been in love there have been moments that I felt that way. I guess it's what happens when you share your life with someone else.

4. What do you miss most about the 80s? My waist

5. What's going on that you can't understand? Why -- even though I'm eating better -- I keep getting fatter and fatter. I've gone up a dress size since I answered question 4.

6. How would I know if you liked me? If I hover and fuss and worry. I'm a worrier when it come to those I care about.

7. If you ever won an award, what would you want it to be for? For being (as Wilbur eulogized Charlotte) "a good writer and a true friend."

8. What would we be surprised to know that you've done? I once rode an elephant.

9. What’s the most exotic mixed drink you remember trying? Did you enjoy it? Kir royale. Yes.
