WHERE | Wicked Tuna

QUESTION | What's the best part about working at Wicked Tuna?

ANSWER | The view. You can't give up that for a job. Especially a desk job.

How many times did you go boating in the Inlet this summer?

None.. I worked too much. But I got to see a lot of people go boating.

Are you ready for summer to be over?

Yes. Well, no, actually I'm not. I miss being that busy in the summer.

Looking back over summer 2013, what was the most fun or most interesting thing that you did?

I went to Los Angeles and saw the Freak Show in Venice Beach.

What is one thing you wish you would have done, but didn't?

Went out on a boat and spent time in the sun and on the beach.

Now that the tourists are gone, what's one thing that you will go out and do that you don't get to enjoy as much during tourist season?

Going out to dinner. Actually being able to sit down for dinner is top of my list.

Any particular restaurant?

Not really. Just sitting down to relax and be waited on instead of waiting on everyone else is the main thing.

What is your favorite thing about the fall?

Halloween. I even have an Alfred Hitchcock bow in my hair right now.

Do you have your Halloween costume yet?

I do. “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.” I figured I'd use some of the stuff I have lying around the house. Tina Turner and Mel Gibson's characters into one… Should be interesting.

What has been your all-time favorite Halloween costume for yourself?

The Bubble Bath. It's super easy and so much fun.

What's the scariest thing you can think of?

Clowns.
