How do you spend your free time?
I love to watch sports, I enjoy all sports. I also enjoy hanging out with my “boys” — my son and my nephews. My boys and I will go see the movies they enjoy on the day it comes out. We can’t wait until days later; we must see them on the night they hit the movie theater. The movies that I like to see, just for me, I will wait until they come out on video, because I don’t want to take away any time from going to the movies with my boys. I also attend church.

The last movie that I saw was “Transformers.” I watch all of the Transformers movies over and over again. I am a Transformer queen.
