1. ONE OF YOUR SCARS, HOW DID YOU GET IT?
The one on my right knee. I got it in Hawaii, or on Hawaii, from a bit of coral, or was it lava rock, (crappo I can't remember now, I think it was coral), when I was trying to rescue Beau and two other kids who'd been pushed up against some rocks by the tide.
2. WHAT IS ON THE WALLS IN YOUR ROOM?
Hmmm, this could get kind of lengthy; an old fashioned curio cabinet kind of thing that I bought at a flea market, currently filled with miniature Steiff animals, another little cabinet shelf thingie filled with creature gifts and small things like trolls -- I like trolls, little plastic aquariums -- I like mini things, especially anything small that relates to the sea, a Beanie Baby squid, and a lady bug that Scott gave me, little, old-fashioned, German-glass-glitter-covered, red polka dot mushroom ornaments, an old chippy shelf that I put my prescriptions on when they need to be refilled. They sit next to this cute little Buddha. There's another faded green mirrored shrine thing that has a monkey in it who looks like he's wearing a yarmulke so Scott calls him Rabbi monkey. Let's see, what else, one of those old fashioned plastic ballet boxes I used to take to ballet class when I was a little girl. A really cool old wooden store sign from Thailand. Bamboo wind chimes that are supposed to alter and improve the chi. Drawings by Beau. A big green schoolhouse chalkboard that serves as my headboard, but that I'm getting sick of. A vintage water colored painting of Chinatown. A cool old Asian themed Rose Parade float design. Many, many shelves with lots and lots of books and wacky knick knacks.
3. WHAT DOES YOUR CELL PHONE LOOK LIKE?
I have two and I hate both of them. One is a purpley colored Blackberry and the other is a silver Palm Treo thing.
4. WHAT MUSIC DO YOU LIKE TO LISTEN TO?
I love music but I am so sensitive and easily distracted that I actually find it easier and more comforting to listen to talk radio when I'm in my car. I can't listen to music and do anything other than dance or clean. I've never been someone who could study or do much else when listening to music. I usually like things that make me feel like singing along. I'm also pretty big on lyrics. I like a lot of the seventies and eighties music I grew up with. I've always loved; Cat Stevens, David Bowie, The Beatles, Tom Petty, The Rolling Stones, Elvis Costello, Stevie Wonder, John Hiatt, John Hiatt, John Hiatt, The Roches, John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Bread, Kate Bush, The Cars, Siouxsie and the Banshees and their spinoff band, Oingo Boingo and their spinoff bands, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana, Ozzie Osbourne, Elton John, Barbara Streisand, Israel Kamakawiwoole, jack Johnson, (I feel like I personally discovered this man because Beau and I were into him waaaaay before anyone even knew who he was), my friend Ana Voog, (I seriously love her music and think she is so underrated, Bonnie Raitt, Sally Struthers, (just checking to see if you're paying attention), The Indigo Girls, Etta James, Billie Holiday, Nancy Griffith, K.D. Lang, Simon and Garfunkle, Aimee Mann, Bob Marley, The Doors, Aretha when she doesn't wear fur coats, Buddy Holly, Madonna, Carly Simon, U2, Sheryl Crow, No Doubt, Gwen Stefani, Ricky Martin, (Just checking again,) UB40, The Eurythmics, assorted movie soundtracks, and theatre cast albums. I know all of the songs from fame, Westside Story, The Sound of Music, Godspell and Jesus Christ Superstar by heart but only know maybe one or two songs from Fiddler on the Roof, so what does that tell you? Umm that I was raised Catholic? I know all of the songs from any musical I was in.
5. DO YOU KNOW WHAT TIME YOU WERE BORN?
6. WHAT DO YOU WANT MORE THAN ANYTHING RIGHT NOW?
A pet Japanese spider crab. Okay, to be a highly respected self supporting working actor.

Well, he's not a possession but I'd have to say my son.
9. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SMELL?
Night blooming jasmine.
10. DO YOU GET CLAUSTROPHOBIC?
Only rarely. I actually like being smushed in elevators with people because it gives me a chance to entertain people and be friendly.
11. DO YOU GET SCARED IN THE DARK?
I used to be really afraid of being alone in the dark, especially after my divorce because I'd spent so many years sleeping with someone beside me, but I've gotten used to it. I think I'm a little afraid of being somewhere unfamiliar in the dark.
13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE COLOGNE / PERFUME?
I like really strong, cloying, syrupy sweet floral perfumes and spicy Orientals. I love vanilla and foody smelling things. I love Opium, Angel, Serge Lutens A La Nuit, Fracas, Fresh's Aqua de Miele, Clinique's Happy, Obsession, Dune, CK1, some of the chocolate scents -- can't remember their names, oh wow, I could go on and on. Bond#9 and the new Memoirs of a Geisha. I don't like musk and patchouli, yech, and I know some people love these scents so much.
14. WHAT KIND OF HAIR DO YOU LIKE ON THE OPPOSITE SEX?
"Just long enough to run my fingers through." I stole that from kevininatutu cause I feel pretty much the same way. Although and I don't mean for this to sound creepy but my son Beau has really great hair. My favorite hair on a guy is Scott's, he has unbelievably sexy hair, thick and pretty, but I get sad when he buzzes it off. I like to be able to grab it.
15. WHERE CAN YOU SEE YOURSELF BEING PROPOSED TO AT?
By the beach at sunset, while scuba diving, while flying, in Hawaii, Tahiti, or Mexico, on a snowy evening in a cabin in the woods in front of a fire.

Both, I need the caffeine, but I hate the taste of
17. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PIZZA TOPPING?
Cheese, fresh tomatoes, and red onions.

A great big fluffy white wedding cake with butter cream frosting. I'd like to just bury my face in it, rub it all over my body and roll around in it.
19. WHO IS THE LAST PERSON YOU MADE MAD?
Scott, as usual, prior to that, my Mother, as usual.
20. DO YOU SPEAK A DIFFERENT LANGUAGE?
I'm fluent in Spanish and speak a little French. I'm trying to learn a bit of conversational Farsi.
21. WHAT WAS THE FIRST GIFT SOMEONE EVER GAVE YOU (OF THE OPPOSITE SEX)?
For some reason, that I will never understand, because we had plenty of money, two "maids" and a nanny who drove, and there were such things as carpools, my parents made me take the dreaded bus to school, not a regular bus that you can walk to and wait for, but one of those busses that picks everyone up, and takes them to one central location, that is usually far far away from your school that is almost walking distance from your home, where I would then get transferred to a smaller bus, and then eventually get that precious ride to school from a scary, wrinkled, scarecrow-stick-thin, kid-hating, bus driver named Tibey, who would periodically slam her foot down on the brakes sending all of us tumbling into the aisles, (we didn't even have seat belts then), because someone was misbehaving and that was how she would correct us. Oh, I forgot that she was a chain smoker, and actually smoked on the bus while driving. On one of the transfer busses I met a boy who went to Emerson and lived somewhere near us in Bel Air. He made a bracelet out of a spoon and gave it to me. I was so happy about this. But then one day he inexplicably asked for it back. That was my first gift from someone of the opposite sex.
WAIT HANG ON A MINUTE WHAT HAPPENED TO 22-27?
Hrrmmmm. I'm guessing the same thing that my pal thought, they were probably about sex and someone deleted them somewhere along the way here. No, wait, then how would there be a question here about them. Oh I get it, you're tricking us, there never were any questions numbered 22-27.
28. WOULD YOU FALL IN LOVE KNOWING THAT THE PERSON IS LEAVING?
Yes, I don't have too much control over who I fall in love with.

Soup slurping, pee sprayed public restroom toilets, pettiness, and Scott when he's being a jerk.
33. HAVE YOU BEEN OUT OF [your country]?
35. YOUR WEAKNESSES?
A lust for power, fame, and success ; ) I can't fire anyone or let anyone go. It's really hard for me to say good-bye. I don't ever want to hurt anyone.

Working in a vintage clothing store.

Because it's sexy.
42. WHAT DO YOU GET COMPLIMENTED ABOUT MOST?
Well, today I got complimented on my fat legs which totally surprised me. And a while ago my friend Jen said she'd always liked my cheekbones that I'd never even noticed or thought about ever.

My full name is Jacqueline Wendy Anne Hyland. The Jacqui came from my Father, whose name was Jack, the Wendy came from my Grandfather whose name was Wendell, and then they tossed the Anne because I couldn't be baptized without a saint's name in there somewhere.

Whenever I see a falling star.

49. WHEN DID YOU LAST CRY?
When I found out that my friend Mary's cancer came back.
50. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
51. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
I'm a vegetarian. I love animals too much to eat their flesh. So if you're getting at what I'd put on a sandwich and take to school, it'd have to be peanut butter and jam.
52. ANY BAD HABITS?
I bite my nails, pick my nose, pick my scabs off, pick at my scalp, lose things, am messy and am a big time procrastinator.
53. WHAT IS YOUR MOST EMBARRASSING CD ON THE SHELF?
I think I pretty much covered this with the Elton John reference.
54. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
Absolutely, but I'd have to find some way to work around the communication shields that Jacqui puts up.
56. DO LOOKS MATTER?
I wish that they didn't, they don't matter to me, but I think that in our society they do.

In Palm Desert and at Scott's, Mom's and Atra's houses.
59. DO YOU TRUST OTHERS EASILY?
Yes, but not quite as much as before, which is probably a good thing.
60. WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE TOY AS A CHILD?
I can't pick just one, there's no point in trying. I loved my teddy bears, especially Bluey and Bruin, (Dad named him), my Mouse Ballet and Dancing School, (I would kill to find one of these on e-Bay, although I don't exactly know who I would kill), my Lite Brite set, my doll house, my Susie Home Maker Oven, Colorforms, Barbies, and books, books, books.
63. DO YOU USE SARCASM?

Yeah, and it was Fucking scary. I was also squished up against one of those stage barricades a couple of times and thought I was going to die.
65. WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN A GUY/GIRL?
Intelligence, compassion, kindness, fidelity, sexual energy, creativity, a great sense of humour, similar interests, talent, a love of nature, animals, children, friendship, connection, a belief in something greater than oneself, experience, the love of travel and adventure, energy, open mindedness, the ability to love deeply, selflessness, ambition, drive, health, and that certain something, the je ne sais quois that makes the magic happen.

I try not to.
70. WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR?
I love 31 Flavors Love Potion which is a special Valentine edition that only comes out once a year, and is basically vanilla with a raspberry ribbon swirl with little chocolates filled with raspberry syrup. I don't really eat ice cream anymore though. Since my surgery it makes me feel pretty ill pretty quickly. I had some Rocky Road (which was my Dad's favorite) recently and I felt so sick afterwards, oh man I thought I would die. My favorite ice cream used to be Haagen Dazs and I would usually get a scoop of strawberry and a scoop of vanilla chocolate chip.
72. WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE COLORS?
All shades of green. I loooove green, it reminds me of the forest. I also love blue like the sky and the ocean and I'm pretty big on shades of pink and purple.
73. HOW MANY WISDOM TEETH DO YOU HAVE?
Oh Lordy my teeth. I've had such a hard time with my teeth. I think I inherited funky teeth from my birth Mother who I have been told had all of her teeth pulled when she was young. Isn't that sad?
Wisdom teeth wise, I had two that were impacted, they were lying sideways in my jaw, so a dentist pulled them, and my two back molars were so cavity filled that the same dentist pulled them in order for the wisdom teeth to grow in and replace. So, I guess I have two, but what little bit is left of them is covered by crowns.
74. WHO DO YOU MISS MOST RIGHT NOW?
My Dad and my ex-husband and my old best friend and her family and the many cats and dogs we have lost through the years.
75. DO YOU WANT EVERYONE TO ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS?
Yes, I love these things. I don't know why people seem to hate memes and things like this so much. Everyone always apologizes when they post them. I'll put it behind the cut to cut down on pissing people off, for whatever reason it is that pisses them off. I enjoy reading the answers people write, and of course if someone didn't, it wouldn't exactly break your wrist to scroll, sheesh.
76. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
The Beatles, John Lennon, It's Easy.
77. LAST THING YOU ATE?
78. LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE?
A woman at the vet's office.
79. THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE IN THE OPPOSITE SEX?
Oh gah I thought I'd covered this. Okay, maybe their eyes and their voice and then their hands and then I'd check out their package, no, just kidding, I never do that, honestly.
80. WHERE WERE YOU BORN?
81. SCARIEST THING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED TO YOU?
I can think of a few; when I was little and got caught in an undertow at the beach and almost drowned, when my Mom's friends kids threw me in the pool before I knew how to swim and later locked me in a locker at night at The Beach Club, when some evil gang members derailed my entire life by asking Robby if they could store some stuff they had just stolen in our apartment for a few hours, and I ended up getting arrested, or well, held for questioning, on the night of the Hugh O'brien awards show at UCLA, which meant that I missed this one thing that I had been working towards since high school, and the day after when one of their angry brothers came looking for me with a gun saying, "I'm going to kill that bitch," because he thought I was the one who called the cops, when I was on a flight to London and we hit really, and I mean really, bad turbulence, when Beau got a really high fever when he was about five and we had to put him in ice water and rush him to the hospital, and all of the times my Dad or Mom almost died.
82. FAVORITE DRINK?
I really like water, Penta preferably, or how about water from a glacier? After that I'd go for hot English breakfast tea with foam on top and a bit of sugar, or watered down Peach Iced tea Snapple with lots of ice. If I could drink anything without setting my bladder on fire I'd drink lemonade and Cosmopolitans oh and I really like Volcanos and Sex on the Beach.
83. FAVORITE JOKE?
The one about the guy in Jamaica who has his new girlfriend's name tattooed onto his dick.

Scuba Diving, swimming, horseback riding.
85. HAIR COLOR?
Brown now dyed blonde.

I have to wear reading glasses now. Sucks. Makes me feel old even though I think glasses are kind of sexy.
I'm adopted but I have two half sisters and a brother, Lorenda, Julie and Ed. Wish I could see them and get to hang out with them.
89. FAVORITE MONTH?
90. YOU LIKE SUSHI?
I used to before I became a vegetarian. Then I learned to love California Rolls without the crab. But then I read a book by Jay Mohr about his time at Saturday Night Live and he wrote about someone who always looked through a jewelers loupe at his sushi before he would eat it. Jay thought he was nuts until one night when the guy showed him the minuscule worms he would sometimes find on the raw fish. Man, the one put me off.
91. LAST THING YOU WATCHED?
I have The Apprentice on now, on pause. Before this I was watching Martha.
92. FAVORITE DAY OF THE YEAR?
Halloween. The Academy Awards. Christmas. My Birthday. Tuesdays.

98. HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE YOU MACKED IT WITH IN THE PAST YEAR?
99. WHAT BOOKS ARE YOU READING?
I'm drawing a complete blank here and I'm currently reading about four books. Wait, hang on...how weird, well one is a memoir about a man and his memory of his parents, oh the other is called Spook because Mary recommended it, and there's this interesting book about a couple in China that I read when I go to Scott's house. But there are two others I'm really enjoying. Although obviously not enough to remember their titles.
100. WHERE DO YOU WORK?
Anywhere my Mother tells me to ; )
