5 YEARS AGO ''The 'Blue's Clues' golden era had arrived.... I was consulting salt and pepper shakers made of felt, taking orders from a blue puzzle-solving puppy, cultivating a severe wardrobe disorder -- and loving it!''
NOW ''There were definitely moments when I would run into the next room so I could giggle maniacally, jump up and down, and clap my hands.... I mean, working with the Flaming Lips on my new album was like a dream come true!''
5 YEARS FROM NOW ''I'd like to assist on a deep-sea recovery effort. But I do intend to be making music, so I'll be doing an underwater tour of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge -- that giant mountain chain -- playing for my crew and whatever else is down there.''
