  • When I stepped down from the stage, Tom told me to follow him, that some people wanted to speak to me. I'm pretty relational, so I followed right along. He didn't tell me that they had cameras and tape recorders.

    I'm terrified by the idea of being on television. Any kind of video, actually. I watch myself and wonder who that person is, since it certainly isn't me. At least most of the people watching didn't speak much English, and would hopefully just be reading the captions.
