Do you believe in Bigfoot?
Believe in him? I know him. His name is Jimmy and we’ve been good friends for a while.

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently?
Answering this questionnaire.

You’re a new addition to the crayon box, what color would you be and why?
Green most likely. I’m quite fond of Green, and energetically speaking it’s usually my primary color.

Which super power would you like to have?
Teleportation HANDS DOWN. I’ve debated this one with many people for quite some time. In every day to day life I couldn’t think of a more useful power. How amazing would it be to simply wake up, get dressed, and then poof to your next destination?

If you could have dinner with anyone in the world living or dead who would it be and why?
It would most definitely be the guru Maharaji. I couldn’t imagine bring in the love and presence of that man.

If you were trapped on a desert island and you could only take three things, what would they be?
Oh the good old Island scenario. All I would need is something to boil water in, an endless supply of seeds to grow some food, and a Hammock. Sounds like a dream to me.

Stay Tuned…Until Next Time…
