Actually, that's the other thing about her that caught my attention. We both have a bonus point system in place for people who do awesome things. The only difference is that I would have to be friends with her for like 42 years before I saw any tangible rewards from it; granted, I didn't flush out all the details from her, but she had something crazy like 100,000 bonus points to achieve anything. Mine is fairly simple:
25 points = ice cream cone
50 points = free limerick + cone
75 points = 1000 of my American Airlines frequent flyer miles + limerick + cone
100 points = polishing of one pair of shoes + free pint of beer
And the scale ascends up and up. I think one person got over the 100 point mark and was at something like 175 when I bought her dinner, julienned some carrots for her, and accompanied her to Bath & Bodyworks for over an hour.
For the record, Sandra, as of December 23, 2012, has 7 bonus points.

-Profession: Bartender; Artist; Entrepreneur
-Favorite activity to do on a long layover: Call family
-You enjoy giving people makeovers in your spare time. How could you spruce me up?: A suit and tie. I'd put you on a nice park bench with a great dane and two hot babes standing behind you. I'd have you smoking a cigar and sipping on a glass of champagne.
-If you and Sandra Day O'Connor were doing your favorite hobbies--gardening and drawing--what would you be doing specifically with her?: We'd be working on the hot pepper part of the garden and we'd be drawing little babies.
-The sound of laser printers warming up makes you happy. What does the sound of one being forcibly shut down do to you?: It freaks me out. I have to take some deep breaths.
