Roberta, you are well known for your bizarre demands when staying in hotels. Is it true? Could you explain us why and maybe make an example of something you usually ask?
Lately I've found that I can't live without green glow-in-the-dark slippers or ketchup-flavored cotton-candy delivered every morning to my door.
Which is your favorite book?
I've quite a soft spot for "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" by Gary Larson.
You surely mean, by Stieg Larsson?
I'm not used to be lambasted by ugly interviewers, and anyway I think we can agree to disagree.
What’s your biggest defect?
I think my worst defect is that I'm very self-centered. Clearly, I'm too good to be an egotist, but usually I follow my thoughts and I wonder what zebras think when they listen to Bach.
What's the strangest nightmare you have ever had?
I dreamed being reproached by a Thomas Alva Edison impersonator. I kept yelling "I did not paint my uncle's cow".
If happiness were an animal, what would it be?
In my dreams it is a bobcat. A big, fat, serene bobcat, full and heavy-eyed in the shade of a large tree.
What do you think about the international situation?
The hell with it! It's hard to figure it when you spend your days in dreams made of rainbows pampered by capable servants, but in these injured times there are countries where it is difficult to find even a just passable frankfurter with or without mayo.
Does your secretary use a pseudonym when he books, say, a hotel suite? You know, to protect your privacy and to elude fans and reporters
That's for certain! We'll do whatever is necessary to get rid of those cannibals. We usually adopt the pseudonym "Roberta Flick".
