October 18, 2004
Hey Sophy, howís it going?
Sophy: Good, thank you.
Pick one word that describes you.
What do you think of IndaPhatFarm.com?
Who do people say you look like?
Over the years Iíve been told that I look like Rosie Perez,
Monica and other people I donít look like. My relatives in
compare me to some chunky looking Malayalee film star.
Can you cook, and if so, what is your specialty?
Iím pretty good. My specialty is Indian food- I can make a
mean butter chicken.
Were you for/against the war in
Iraq, and why?
Against - I think war should only be considered when a nation
is cornered. In this case, I donít think there was substantial
evidence to declare war. If war in
justified then why donít we just go to war with all
countries that are ruled by dictators and are thought to have
weapons of mass destruction? I believe in defending
oneís own country when threatened, but nearly 11,000
deaths/injuries and 0 WMD later ÖI donít think it was

What is something you canít stand in a person?
Insincerity and selfishness.
How excited are you about the return of Joe Gibbs?
What kind of parent do you want to be?
A benevolent dictator who leads by example.
Some countries you would like to visit/re-visit, and why?
I love Kerala, thatís right Lakshmi, I said it! (But only for
For the architecture, but most importantly to make
handsome additions to my handbag collection
For chocolate, bread and LV
pita bread, hummus, and green olives
To walk where Jesus walked
To meet The Crocodile Hunter.
What is something you want to do before you die?
There are so
many things I would like to do. Traveling around the world
is one of them.
Have a favorite verse/passage from the Bible?
What is your take on George W? Contrast him with John Kerry.
Well, although I am convinced that G. W. isnít the brightest
bulb in the bunch (sometimes when I hear the things that come
out of his mouth I am amazed that he actually holds public
office), I do think he is a man of principle. And he has a
strong administration to make up for his lack of, shall
we say, Floetry.
The thing that
appeals to me most about John Kerry is John Edwards.
The bottom line is that politicians
promise much, but their word isnít their bond. They
compromise. George Bush has compromised. George
Stephanapolous once said
that Bill Clinton Ē Ö kept every promise he intended to keep.Ē
We are on the
verge of legalizing gay marriage and banning the name of God
in our schools. We already allow the murder of thousands of
unborn children. Day by day, people are becoming tolerant of
abominations that have become a norm in American cultureÖeven
I am scared
that this country is going to turn into a modern day Sodom and
Gomorrah and we are all going to be smashed into smithereens.
In politics, I believe in picking the lesser of two evils. I
pick George W.
What is the first thing you notice about a person?
Using Microsoft Paint, please draw us a picture.
What is the meaning of life?
To know God. To make the most of it.
What is your take on interracial marriage?
Iíve mulled over this issue for years Ö I think it depends
on the people, the situation, and the willingness of both
parties to make huge sacrifices (especially if your parents
are against it). However, I am certain that any union can
work well if the foundation is rooted and grounded in Christ.
If you could live in any time period you wanted to, what would
it be, and why?
This one, because I canít see life without indoor toilets and
What is the role of the man of the house?
To love and provide for his family, be the spiritual leader,
and fix everything thatís broken.
What is the role of the woman of the house?
To support her husband, be a good role model for her
children, take care of home, and shop whenever she wants.
What do you think Jesus looked like?
Just as the Bible describes him.
Describe your ideal house.
Inside: Two story foyer, large rooms with cathedral ceilings,
wood floors, Roman columns, crown molding, gourmet kitchen,
and a fireplace, sitting room, and balcony in the master
Outside: Large landscaped land, California-style tiered deck,
garden with a huge arched trellis, rec. spaceÖ
Name someone you admire, and why.
Earnest Jenkins. A man of faith.
To honor, esteem, and give value to someone or something. It
goes hand in hand with love.
Scenario: Ok you are working at
and you are the designated store closer that day. The store
is emptied out, and as you head to the front door to lock up,
a masked man shoves open the door and blocks your exit. There
is a bright yellow
inscribed across the length of his black shirt. In any case,
goons enter the store, pulling in a large shredder. They
demand that you help them shred all of the
merchandise. What do you do?
I will assume my fighting stance and then deliver a few
rounds of upper cuts mixed with powerhouse kicks that will
knock Ďem out. Then I will apologize to my inventory for
having to witness a threat to their livelihood. Donít ever
mess with Gucci and me. Iíll fight to the death.
Lastly, leave us with a parting thought.
"The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can
do him absolutely no good." - Samuel Johnson
