What are your hobbies?
“I like movies. It’s an escape. I’m a big ‘Star Wars’ fan. I’ve got all six movies. For Valentine’s Day from my husband I got a collection of photos from the movies. My favorite ‘Star Wars’ movie is ‘The Empire Strikes Back.’ ”
Who do you follow on Twitter?
“I follow different ‘Star Wars’ ones. Some wrestling ones. I follow the Blackhawks, some of the Bulls. (Joakim) Noah, that’s the one I follow for sure. I love Noah because he really likes the game. We went to a game against the Heat last year.”
What do you like about Oak Lawn?
“It’s a good family area. I grew up here. There are great stores here. It’s small-town America. It’s kind of bigger, but it does feel like a small town.”
What book are you reading?
“I’m currently reading ‘Washington: A Life.’ It’s long. It’s really a good story. It’s basically cradle to the grave, and I’m still in the Revolutionary War. I started reading it in May when we went to Mount Rushmore. It’s a great book, just a lot of pages.”
Which person from history do you want to meet?
“Abraham Lincoln. It would be interesting to see his point of view of history, how he had to break the country up and bring it back together. I’d ask him about the Civil War.”
