My personal philosophy is 'I can improve any situation.' My favorite singer is Simone Gentil from Mauritius off of Africa (then starts singing her favorite song I have all the World's Treasures in the Palm of My Hand).  If you select me for a date, I promise to bring humor and good energy  and..."

"And Cut! My dear sister Olivia – what are you thinking? Do think that singing Simone Gentil and showing your beloved suitcase is going to win you any dates? You are coming across a wee ditzy."
