JJ: What’s a gift that you didn’t get as a kid that you always wanted?
EI: There wasn’t anything that I really wanted.
JJ: Is there a gift you’re hoping to get under your Christmas tree this year?
EI: Yes!! I want to be able to take 48 hours of peace and quiet where I can sleep and relax.
JJ: You need a vacation! Are you on the naughty or nice list this year?
EI: I’m in between! [laughs]
JJ: Do you have any favorite family traditions?
EI: You know, to my mom it’s so important. On the 24th we eat dinner right before the 25th. That right there is crucial for her.
JJ: And who does the cooking?
EI: She doesn’t do the cooking, that’s for sure. We usually eat turkey.
JJ: Do you have a favorite Christmas carol?
EI: Nope, not really. I mean I like a bunch of them.
JJ: Do you have a favorite Christmas song?
EI: You know what Christmas song I used to listen when I was a little kid over and over? George Michael‘s “Last Christmas”. That was my favorite. Well classic maybe is from that generation.
JJ: If you could design the ugliest Christmas sweater, what would you put on it?
EI: I don’t know. It’d be really green. Really, really green with a reindeer on it!
