Dating “I find dating exhausting and uninteresting, and I really would like to skip over the hours of conversation that you need to get up to speed on each other’s lives, and the stories I’ve told a million times. I just want to get to the watching TV in bed. If you’re on a date with me, you can be certain that this is what I’m evaluating you for: how good is it going to be, cuddling with you in bed and watching Damages?” Source: Sarah’s memoir, The Bedwetter

Disney in Her Life “I was Minnie Mouse for Halloween every year when I was little. Then I had the Cinderella nightgown when I was really little, that I begged my mother to wear to school. I was also Snow White a lot.” Source: Wreck-It Ralph press day interviews posted by Collider.com 29 Oct 2012

Favorite Childhood Video Games “I love[d] “Joust”!…There was “Joust” in our Dairy Queen, in New Hampshire, and I mastered it. I spent so much time with that Joust. I loved it! And, all you’re doing is flapping this weird bird… this really long, odd bird with really tiny wings, and you’re like (hitting the table) “This flaps the wings”. But yeah, “Frogger”, “Astroids”, “Centipede”… On Atari there’s the regular joy stick, but then there’s the new joy stick with the dial that you could play “Kaboom!” with. Then, this game “Pitfall!” came out, that, for the time, the graphics were incredible! Now, you would laugh, but I was blown away by “Pitfall!”. When I moved out here, and was actually an adult in my early 20?s, we had gotten a Nintendo 64 at MR. SHOW. Whenever anyone wasn’t shooting they were playing “Goldeneye 007?. There were four windows on this giant tv, and it became my world! (Laughs) Like, I dreamt about it.” Source:Press day roundtable interview posted by veryaware.com 29 Oct 2012

Favorite Movie Comedies ”Defending Your Life, Broadway Danny Rose, Annie Hall, Manhattan, and Real Life. Bridesmaids is up there. Borat is maybe one of my top favorite comedies. Where’s Poppa blows my mind. Check it out…Brilliant Ruth Gordan, George Segal. So ahead of it’s time! Or, maybe not ahead of it’s time. There are so many older movies that, now… We’re living in such a conservative time compared to the 70?s. There’s a movie called The One and Only that Carl Reiner directed by Steve (Gordon). The guy who went on to write Arthur. I loved it. It’s one of my favorites.” Source: Press day roundtable interview posted by veryaware.com 29 Oct 2012

Pot “Make It A Treat” Sources: She dedicates an entire chapter to this in her memoir, The Bedwetter ( Excerpt: “Make It a Treat” is similar in spirit to “everything in moderation,” but still very distinct. “Moderation” suggests a regular, low-level intake of something. MIAT asks for more austerity; it encourages you to keep the special things in life special.)
