Do you consider yourself to be an optimist or a pessimist?
I consider myself a realist - hope for the best but prepare for the worst.
What is your favorite color of ink to write with?
Black. It's bold and straightforward. When I was in law school I did have to keep my inner child entertained by using various colored highliters for my schoolbooks, though. I preferred green and orange for that.
How often do you get a manicure or pedicure? Do you do them yourself or go to a salon and pay for them?
I do my own nails - manicure once a week, and a pedicure every three weeks or so in the summer. I love buying nail polish - my sister says I have a hundred versions of the same shade of pink. That is not entirely accurate.
