I have a loyalty that runs in my bloodstream, when I lock into someone or something, you can’t get me away from it because I commit that thoroughly. That’s in friendship, that’s a deal, that’s a commitment. Don’t give me paper – I can get the same lawyer who drew it up to break it. But if you shake my hand, that’s for life.

I really am opinionated, but not for long. I have found myself coming off of what I think of something because the guy I’m talking to makes better sense than I am. I have so many points of view, I can’t keep track of ’em, because I talk to too many people… I’m not so opinionated that I won’t budge.
