    I just got one question, what did she blow up? hehe. I sure hope that’s not Uncle Mike’s car in the picture. 😛

    Great, great interview! Now my #2 favorite interview! (You’ll have a hard time knocking Bridget Regan out of #1 :) )

    Darcy – Really what HASN’T she blown up? I loves me some Mythbusters because they blow ALL SORTS of things up.

    Locutus – Oh yes, serious SQUEEEEE moments for me.

    if there’s a bookmark feature on Direct TV, this show is first on our list. It is always on here. And yes they do blow up everything. Makes you wonder if Michael Bay is funding them. hmmmmmm.
