A bit of TnT fun

OK, let me tell you what you're about to see here. My friend Jessica Joy, aka normajeanebaker, who recently left the cast of Tony n' Tina's Wedding, devised a questionnaire for TnT cast members to fill out. My answers are shown below. If you'd like to see other folks' answers, check out Jessica Joy's journal yourself. She won't mind, really. I should note that some of these questions and answers will make little sense if you're not intimately familiar with the show, but I think there's enough good stuff here to make it worth posting.

Setting the record straight
A few cast members have taken me to task for my comment above that I only make out with audience members. All right, all right . . . Vinnie sometimes makes out with Aunt Rose at the end of the show (it's really fun if Loretta catches them in the act, though that rarely happens), and if there's no Dominic, Father Mark grabs Sister Terry and kisses her at a certain moment. There. I hope everyone's happy now that I've set the record straight.
