76. What is the best advice you’ve ever been given?
I probably wasn't listening to the absolute best that was given, but "Trust yourself" is pretty close to the top of what I remember.77. Is it easier to forgive or forget?
Much easier to forget. SOOOOOoooo much easier!78. First mobile phone?
I didn't get one till about 10-12 years ago. Maybe 2002?79. Strangest dream?
I have strange dreams nearly every night. No, actually, I'm sure have have strange dreams EVERY night, but I remember only the ones in which I'm enmeshed when the alarm wakes me.80. Best dream?
See above. I have some really awesomely funny weird dreams....81. Who is the smartest person you know?
Depends on what we're measuring. Book-smart? Experience-smart? Emotional-smart? I know an awful lot of very smart people, for whom and for which I'm ever-thankful.82. Who is the prettiest person on you know?
It's rare for me to run across someone I can't find some sort of beauty in. There are very few truly ugly people out there, even the ones whose exterior isn't easy on the eyes.83. Do you miss anyone right now?
Yes. Always. It ebbs and flows and right now the tap is WIIIIIDE open.84. Who do you love? Why?

"Good"--I like lots of genres, including classic rock, heavy metal, rap, R&B, country, folk, indie, Christian, Middle-Eastern, funk, old pop (like Sinatra, Crosby, Clooney, Lee), Afro-pop, reggae, ska, house, what my dad called "long-hair music" (a.k.a. "Classical)....89. If you had one word to describe yourself, what would it be?
"Unfinished."90. Describe your life in 5 words.
"I don't have a clue."91. Craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Crazy from whose standpoint? Mine when I did it, or looking back on it? Craziest thing I can think of that turned out great and that I never have regretted is going to college 1000 miles from home. In so many ways, that's when my real life started.92. First three songs in your favorite playlist?
The first three I added to my starred list on Spotify are "Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel)" by Billy Joel, "Fadeaway" by Da Bodeans, and "Black, White, Tan" by Nicole Mullen. Alphabetically by author (and omitting bands starting with numbers), it's "Wake Up" by Aaradhna, "My Savior My God" by Aaron Shust, and "Dancing Queen" by ABBA. Alpha by title (and omitting numbered song titles): "The A Team" by Ed Sheeran, "ABC" by the Jackson 5, and "Ackee 1-2-3" by The English Beat. That gives you a fair approximation of what my headphones sounds like at work.93. Are you more creative or logical?
I'm more logical most of the time.94. Would you rather lie or hurt someone with the truth?
I'm too honest by far about answering people's questions, though I have learned a tiny bit of tact over the years.95. What are you most proud of?

Joy.97. When you imagine yourself as really, really relaxed and happy, what are you doing?
Sleeping. hah OK, or playing with kids. Or reading in the sun.98. How do you usually start a conversation?
"Hi" usually works for me. Not real creative (see #93), is it? Often I open a conversation with a question: "Can you help me?" "What's your name?" "How do you know [the host or whoever got me there]?" Simple is better.
