I like being able to go grocery shopping and not feel that I'm fighting a thousand people.
I sometimes suffer from insomnia. And when I can't fall asleep, I play what I call the alphabet game.
For me, drawing was an outlet. No one in school said, 'Oh, she can do sports,' or, 'She's pretty,' but I could draw.
I have an African gray parrot; her name is Eli. We thought she was a boy. And a blue-streaked lory named Marco. He's 10. And a yellow and green parakeet, Petey. He's very cute, but he's getting old.
I've had people ask me if it would have been easier to take care of your parents if you had siblings, and I think it's 50/50. I know people who have siblings, and there is a lot of acrimony because somebody always feels that they are doing more than the other person.
When my father died, my mother was still alive. And I think when your second parent dies, there is that shock: 'Oh man, I'm an orphan.' There's also this relief: It's done; it's finished; it's over.
I always imagined my little cartoons on plates for some reason.
I don't like holidays. And I don't like crowds of people. I don't like noise.
I just really love the cartoon form. I love the plasticity of it.
I had to get good grades and do well in school - my mother was an assistant principal and my father was a teacher - and they took this very seriously.
Childhood - that was not my favorite time in my life.
Even if you don't have any dishes, you need a celery dish.
Grime is not like messiness or some fingerprints on a cabinet; it takes a long time to accumulate.
I cannot stand superheroes. I do not understand any of its appeal. It has just bored me to death since I was a little kid.
I don't like cartoons that take place in Nowhereville. I like cartoons where I know where they're happening.
