Week of August 8, 2001

Dick Frommann
Beach Comber
"Enjoyability. I'm able to enjoy almost everything and people enjoy me. I hope!"

Kathleen Feeney
Gifted Education Teacher
"If I have one predominant trait it's to be overly idealistic which leads to extreme disappointment in people which leads to being profoundly judgmental."

Bob Fromtling
Indie Film Maker
"Tranquil, laid back. I don't get bent out of shape about much. Kind of like Taoism, you just flow with everything that happens around you. Even if you're caught in a whirlpool, you're supposed to go with the current."

Virginia Weaver
Runner-Up, 1977 Betty Crocker Bake-Off
"Fussy, very fussy. My son, the amateur psychologist, says I have an obsessive-compulsive disorder, but he's crazy. It's just that everything has to be a certain way. And if it isn't that way I get what they call anxiety attacks. Do you know that I can tell if something in my home has been moved a quarter-inch, even though there's not a speck of tell-tale dust? My home is immaculate. You could eat a sandwich off the floors -- that's how clean they are."

Michael Dominguez
Art Director, Christian Board Of Publication
"I would say that it's always trying to find the good side of people and situations. For instance, I occasionally hear gossip about others. I don't always verbalize it at the time, but I feel that there is a more gentle side to everyone and if I'm going to make a judgment about someone I want to give it time and make my own judgments, rather than take someone else's judgment."

Claire Dubridge
Banking Officer
"Outgoing. To the point of being pushy ... well, almost pushy. As my dad says, I'm always taking it one step too far. I think it comes from being over-confident, because whatever I want I go after it, and usually get it."
