Random Interview Saturday! Jane Lebak

The H. L. Burke Random Interview is not like other interviews. The questions are all over the place. They have no purpose. Their purpose is their lack of purpose.
There are nine questions because cats, but these nine questions are subject to change without notice, so the questions one person answers may not be the questions answered by the next author.
Our next author shows up carrying fairy wings and a set of oven mitts. Hopefully we'll find out why soon ... it's JANE LEBAK!

The Interview

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
A chuckton.
You have superpowers. What are they and what do you do with them?
 I can already read minds in real life, so I think I need telekinesis so I can a) become Phoenix and b) answer the phone without getting off the couch.
I know exercise is good for me, but it is not entertaining. What methods do you suggest for making workouts more fun?
Buy a set of wings on sale after Halloween and wear them over your running gear. Whenever you pass someone on the street, hand them a push pin from a small sack you have tied to your waist. "I am the Push Pin Fairy," you can say, "here to remind you that life is a corkboard." Also fun: finding new neighborhoods to run in after the police stop by to have a chat. 
Your life is being made into a movie. Who plays you? Who plays your love interest? (or who plays your arch-enemy?)
 I don't watch enough to really know anything about anyone. Karen Gillan could play me. I don't have an arch-enemy in real life, so we'll have to invent a really awesome one instead. How about Ultron? Sometimes I feel like we're all battling Ultron. 
Did you bring me anything?
I found this awesome recipe for cooking a turkey on the engine block of your car while you're driving to your great-aunt's in Pensacola for Thanksgiving. I'll toss you the car keys and you can go get it for me, okay? Bring oven mitts. 

Vs movies seem to be all the rage. If you had to put one together, what on screen match up would you like to see?
Guardians of the Galaxy versus Doctor Who, but only for the one-liners delivered at blazing speeds. Can you imagine the Doctor trading jabs with Rocket? And I know the TARDIS would get along fabulously with Groot. 

If you had to write only in one crayon color for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
Every single crayon of the thousands in this house is shattered except for the colors no one wants, so probably mauve. The teal one is about a centimeter long and is broken on a bias, otherwise I'd choose that. 

What film era do you feel best represents your day to day life? 
I think the 70s Disaster Films work best with my life. You know: Poseidon Adventure, Airport, Towering Inferno, Horror At 37,000 Feet. That era. Lots of drama, a cast of familiar faces, low-budget, and not much you can remember afterward.

If this question were any question in the world, what question would you want it to be and how would you answer it?
Q: Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?
A: Yes.
