My personal superpower is: I’m a fast learner and good at learning on the fly

What habit are you keeping post-pandemic? Rock collecting and working with geodes. I want to take a lapidary class post-pandemic.

Favorite mask? Discovery sent merch to some of our marketing folks, and I snagged an HGTV mask from a coworker’s package. It is the most comfortable of all my masks!

What show/movie hasn’t been rebooted that you wish would be? Is it too soon to ask for a “Game of Thrones” reboot so we can have the final season we deserve?

New slang word or phrase you’ve learned? Apparently 💀 has replaced 🤣 as the go-to emoji when you find something hilarious, or so I’ve been told by younger folks at Philo.

What’s your COVID vaccine slogan? You get what you get and you don’t get upset.

My comfort TV binge? “Veep,” “Arrested Development” and “The Office” are my go-tos. I’m still bitter over “Futurama” leaving Netflix, as that was my original favorite comfort binge.

What are you most looking forward to this summer? Seeing family.

Last podcast listened to: “Unchained” with Laura Shin. I am a big believer in crypto.
