 What’s on your iPod? I don’t have an ipod. Santa I hope you are reading this. If I had an ipod it would be filled with music from Hawaii, disco, soft rock, country, and whatever is current so I can keep up with the times.

Which professional sport would you play and why?Basketball. I loved playing b-ball when I was younger, and I can still dunk that is, if a ladder is available.

If you were not in TV news, what profession would you choose?I would be an attorney.

What’s something that no one knows about you?  My favorite movie is “Mama Mia.” I watch it all the time.

Dinner for 5, who would you invite? (Dead or alive) Queen Liliuokalani, my grandmother on my mom’s side (I’ve never been able to find her), my Great Aunt Alice (quite the conversationalist), and Jesus. Yeah
