My favorite author is American novelist Robert R. McCammon.
My favorite movie comedy of all-time is "What's Up, Doc?" (1972).
My ultimate feel-good-sing-a-long-song is "Don't Worry, Baby" by the Beach Boys.
My favorite feel-good-dance-song to lose myself on a dance floor is "Dancing Queen" by ABBA.
"Let them talk." -- Sophia Loren
