MOVIE

WHO: Tonika Crockett, 32, of Tyler

WHAT: Carmen Jones

WHY: I’m really into musicals. I love the singing and the dancing, and the women look so elegant in their costumes. It was made in 1954. I used to watch it with my mom. I could — I have — watched it over and over.

 

FOOD

WHO: Meka Anthony

WHAT: Fired chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy

WHAT: Garden salad

WHY: It’s the ultimate comfort food, I could eat it every day. Oh, with macaroni and cheese!

 

INSPIRATION

WHO: Travis Webb, Tyler

WHO: My father

WHY: My dad has had his ups and downs in life. At one point he went from owning his own business to bankruptcy. I remember seeing this man, who’d had million-dollar contracts, doing God only knows what — and coming home with bloody, blistered hands — to put food on the table. I’ve never known a better, harder working man and I highly doubt I ever will.

 

MOMENT

WHO: Sherri Horne, of Tyler, a hair stylist

WHAT: Lunch time

WHY: Lunch has always been my favorite meal. You eat a healthy lunch and it will carry you through the afternoon.
