It would definitely be Spongebob like. Cute little character who blithely wanders into dangerous situations and blunders about "fixing" things because they just want everyone to be happy and nice. That's pretty much the story of my life.

2. Do you have a skill or talent that you wish you had the time and/or resources to develop more? I used to sing more than I do now. Now its strictly in the shower or car, but back in the day I got to meet some pretty big names because of my singing. Its not my life now, but I do miss it from time to time. I miss singing in a choir too. I don't mean a church choir, I mean a performance based choir. There was a real challenge to learning some of that music and you really had to be on your game. It can be pretty nerve wracking to have a conductor point to your general area and mention that someone is "consistently flat" and to shape up and then give you the hairy eyeball. EEK! How the hell can they identify ONE VOICE in 100 people??? But even with that, the exhilaration of producing that kind of music is inexplicable. O Holy Night still brings tears to my eyes at one particular chord...every time.

3. A famous composer wants to write a theme song for you. What kind of song would it be (up-beat, pretty, pop, classical, etc.)?

Hmmm...upbeat classical a la Bugs Bunny music. My life is more ups than downs and is sometimes in fast forward!

4. What character trait do you most value in yourself?

This is always a tough question for me to answer. (I just did it in my last job interview!) I'm not overly modest, but this question makes me feel like I'm boasting. I believe I "see" people well. I can often read what motivates them, see where they've come from and know how to deal with them. It makes it tough for kids to put one over on me, and sometimes gives me a bit of an edge in deescalating a client. Is that a character trait? Maybe I should just say that I genuinely love people and what makes them who they are. That's more what you're looking for I think.

You guys ask some toughies! I really have to think hard about these ones! I was thinking I was going to be getting stuff like "how many pets do you have?"
Being able to read people is totally a valid answer. There is even a skill in D&D 3.x called Sense Motive that is exactly that! (yes, I'm one of those nerds) I think it's great because not only does it help you not get fooled by people, but it helps you understand them too. Great answers all around!

Uh, I've got three questions.

1. Where's the fire extinguisher?
2. What's the number for 911?
3. How do you get the smell of singed cat fur out of the house?
