Hodgepodge Questions-Volume 309

Another HodgePodge from Joyce.

1. What makes you feel accomplished? Explain.

There is a lot of feedback in my profession.  You win a case, you feel good.  You lose, you feel awful.  You reach a good settlement, before trial, you feel satisfied.  

2. If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be? Tell us why.

I'd love to talk with Billy Joel. I love his music.  And he's a fellow Long Islander, I know we have a lot in common.

Senator Al Franken is a fascinating speaker and conversationalist. I love his sense of humor.

My favorite author is Nelson DeMille.  I'm sure he'd keep me entertained for awhile as we discuss his works, what motivates him, how he develops a story line.
3. Do you have a great burger recipe? What's in it? What do you like on a hamburger and where is your favorite spot to order one out?

I don't do much cooking, probably haven't made a burger in years.  Drew likes to grill burgers and top them with mozzarella and bacon, or with cheese and pastrami. 

We love to go out for a burger.  Favorites include Five Guys, Wayback and Red Robin;  There's also a place in Massapequa called All American, it's a throwback to the 1950's style hamburger stand.  Surprisingly, we didn't care for Bobby Flay's burgers.
4. What's the biggest anxiety producing thing you do on a regular basis
Speak up in court.  It's like an actor with stage fright, I'm very nervous, my stomach churns, I don't feel relief until the proceedings have come to a close.

5. This is the last Hodgepodge of May. Tell us about your summer plans.

Swimming in the community pool, trips to the beach, Long Island Ducks games, a dinner cruise on the Great South Bay...

6. Insert your own random thought here.

Still waiting for authorization for the medication my doctor ordered almost a week ago.

I hope you get the authorization soon. Being in pain sucks.

Interesting that speaking in court still gets to you. You'd think it would get easier the more you do it.
