“Shopping for Christmas gifts, it’s hard to go out to the mall and get gifts because everybody wants to take a picture, so I just end up buying all my gifts online.
“Over the last few years I’ve been recognized more and more and more. It just keeps on more and more and once one person wants a picture, if you take it, then your shopping is finished because everybody else wants one.
“I don’t even try to disguise myself now, I just don’t go to the mall. And if I do go, I just go right when they open.
“My parents’ anniversary is on Christmas Eve, so my brother and sisters always used to cook for them, make cookies for Santa afterwards and watch ‘The Grinch’ and then try to go to sleep. I don’t remember what we made, but it was always a nice little dinner.
“My favorite Christmas gift ever has to be my Ninja Turtles when I was little. I got the four.
“Picking my favorite turtle – that’s a tough one because I love the nunchucks but Donatello was my favorite with the stick. I like him because of his weapon.
“I got the bus. I got the mini-van, whatever it was. I was good after that.”
