QUESTION | During Bike Week do you hop on a bike or avoid the roads?

ANSWER | Usually hop on a bike, but this year it was so busy I basically slept here.

What was the craziest thing you saw this year during Bike Week?

Probably Jell-O shots being taken off some lady's boobs.

Are people normally that wild, or just use Bike Week as an excuse to go crazy?

I think everybody is a closet freak. And they use Bike Week to let it out.

How 'bout you - are you a freak in and/or out of the closet?

I'd say more out than in.

Give me an example of a something shocking you've done.

Keeping it PG…I sold my underwear for $100 right off my body.

That's a quick way to make 100 bucks.

Yes - easiest $100.

What is the worst act of revenge a broken hearted love has done to you?

Nothing, but I can tell you what I've done to them.

That was actually the next question… what is the most evil thing you've done to an ex-lover?

I Super Glued my ex-boyfriend's gas cap shut when I knew he was out of gas, and I glued his windshield wipers to the windshield during the winter in New Hampshire. That's still my favorite.

OK… if that's your favorite… what else have you done?!

I can be a spiteful person. I have had a boyfriend's car towed - actually repossessed - while he was at work.

So what prompted the Super Glue and the towing?

They were cheating. I'm only crazy when I need to be crazy.

Do you forgive and forget or hold a grudge?

I don't carry a grudge, I forgive but don't forget.

What's better in a relationship… passion that can lead to craziness and fighting, or a moderate flame that can lead to apathy yet peace?

I guess passion that leads to fighting as long as it doesn't involve punching and it leads to make-up sex… there's nothing wrong with a little hair pulling.
