Kate, you seem to be always so cheerful and sunny. Do you also have a dark side?
It's hard to admit it, but I do. Each and every one has two sides. At times, when I meet a so-called artist, I grind my teeth and my vision goes black. And suddenly, I sense a compulsion to erase her mocking smirk. That is my amiable side... I let you figure out how my dark side is.
Do you have any scar?
Yes, I do. I have a tiny earthworm shaped scar on my left calf, a remainder of my troublesome confrontation with a raving panther.
I heard that you will soon participate to a charity marathon. Would you tell us why'd you decide to undertake such a titanic effort?
I had to for a small clause in my last contract, which prescribed me to fake an interest in good deeds.
And how long have you been feeling an urge to fight laryngitis?
Oh, since always.
Kate, you are always in tip-top condition. Which is your secret?
I have invented the Blue Diet: in the month of March I eat only blue foods, like blueberries, robin's eggs, blue crabs and blue jays died by natural causes.
Which is your favorite snack?
Onions with relish, a chicken leg, three pizzas, and a bit of coffee.
Kate, which is your favorite fruit?
It is called "Kate's wonder". During one of my famed expeditions in the Hymalayas, I discovered a new shrub, now named Arigyna antipoda, which every 7 years blooms and produces fruits whose flavor reminds of oranges and pine needles. It may seem uninviting, but it's easy to get the habit.
If I may say so, Kate, you are also well known for your bizarre requests when staying in hotels. Could you tell us why and maybe make an example of something you may ask?
Call it stubbornness, but I can't stay anywhere without astronaut memoirs or a pepperoni pizza delivered daily to my room.
