eat, drink, be merry: Tell us your go to meal

If this is about putting dinner on the table; meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Easy recipe, everyone likes it, they even like the leftovers!

If this is about my favorite meal, then a t-bone on the grill with baked potato!

beauty & fashion: I can skip these

I rarely do eyebrows. They're on the skimpy side anyway, so it's not like I look like a neanderthal without my eyebrows done.

I'm a comfy kind of woman, jeans, tees, or other comfortable clothing. I can do without dresses for the most part.

I NEVER go without these

Blush and mascara. Mascara to make my eyes pop, they're my best feature. Blush always makes a woman look more lively and animated, even if she's having a "blah" day.

Biggest splurge or steal in my closet

I like nicer jeans, no, not the $100+ kind, but I love my Hilfigers!

do-gooder: Why I am one

I work at an animal shelter with my son, and my youngest son asked me to find out if it would be okay for him to volunteer too.

read, watch, listen:Favorite books

Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice of course, but any Jane Austen. Otherwise, I have a thing for British mystery novels. Ruth Rendell, PD James, Frances Fyfield, Minette Walters, and many more.

Favorite bands

Music, I prefer 70s Funk and Disco or 80s Rock, but will listen to anything but Country or Opera.

Def Leppard, Journey, Nickelback (don't judge me!), Vanessa Williams, Mariah Carey, Earth Wind and Fire, The Bee Gees, Hall and Oates, Motley Crue, Kool and the Gang, The Police, The Cars, anything!

Favorite TV shows

America's Next Top Model. That's it. I don't really watch tv.

Favorite movies

A&E's Pride and Prejudice! The Italian Job, Caddyshack, The Departed, Lost Boys, Deuce Bigalow.

home & living:My favorite room in my house

My basement hideaway. No one bothers me in there!

potluck:Five people (dead or alive) I’d invite to a party

My sisters, my sons. These are the people I always have fun with. I'd also want my nephews and nieces, and my best friend Kathy.

If I were an 80’s movie/tv/music star, I’d be

80s Mariah Carey when she was on FIRE! instead of now since she's mostly pathetic.

Or maybe Paula Abdul, same 80s on FIRE! now pathetic.

Or maybe Janet Jackson, yeah her, she was on FIRE! then and still is now.
