Something that makes you smile
- When the crowd throw all those plush dolphins on the ice at the end of figure skating championships.
- Someone putting a gun to my head & saying … smile, or else I’ll shoot you!
- Women turning down public marriage proposals.
- John Lithgow in Third Rock From the Sun.
I haven’t seen almost any important cinema from the last 100 years, but I have seen every episode of Frasier twice. I’m working on it.
The last thing you wrote
The last thing I wrote was usually an email. I’m always sending emails, and leaving two severe bureaucratic little kisses at the end. I don’t want to be always sending emails, but that’s the way things are.
Your favourite city
I haven’t been travelling much, but I hear Paris, Rome, Tokyo and London are nice. Just kidding. I went to Vancouver last year & had a brilliant time. My favourite city is Minnesota, but sadly I have never been there. It is my great ambition in life to go to Minnesota and eat a jello salad very politely.
What you’d place in a time capsule
In a time capsule I’d place another time capsule which couldn’t be opened for another hundred years, and inside that an even smaller time capsule, with a single casio wristwatch inside.
