August 23, 2013
Following last week’s post of our Fall Program Preview, I’d now like to take the time to introduce you to

JILL REMBRANDT, Director of Education & Programming

What is your all-time favorite album?
Live Rust by Neil Young & Crazy Horse

What book are you currently reading?
The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult

If you could compare yourself to any fictional character, who would it be?
Elaine, from Seinfeld

What item is always in your fridge?
Tru Moo chocolate milk, my kids can’t get enough.

Fruit in Jell-O: yes or no?
I hate Jell-O but if I had to choose I would say definitely without fruit.

If I were James Lipton and we were on Inside the Actor’s Studio, which of the 10 Questions would most like me to ask you and how would you answer?
What sound or noise do you hate? The sound of someone sucking the last bit of a drink out of a cup with a straw.  I have thrown away complete stranger’s drinks in a movie theater when I hear that sound.

How’s the new car?
I really like it! I love that it is orange. It makes me happy to look at it.

Anything else? Do you have a joke to share?
Most of the jokes I know are dirty.  Here’s my favorite story to tell people who hold grudges or hold on to things too long:

A man and the Dalai Lama are walking through the desert when they come upon a woman of ill repute who can’t cross over a particularly rough patch of road.  The Dalai Lama picks her up and carries her across.  A few miles later, the man says to the Dalai Lama “I just have to ask you, you are so pure and so holy and yet you picked up that disgusting woman and carried her across the road, why would you touch a person of such filth?” and the Dalai Lama answers: “I put that woman down hours ago, why can’t you?”
