FAQ

Now James Lipton (from Inside the Actor’s Studio) hasn’t asked me these questions, but just in case he should decide to…

1. What is your favourite word?

Summer. Swimming, sunshine, beer, friends… All good.

2. What is your least favourite word?

Gots

3. What turns you on?

Interesting or surprising conversation. Natural humour. Wine

4. What turns you off?

Hate. Bigotry. Closed mindedness

5. What sound do you love?

My kids calling for me in the morning

6. What sound do you hate?

My kids calling for me in the middle of the night

7. What is your favourite curse word?

Snapper. My close friend likes it and thinks it’s hilarious like an ten-year-old boy would. Every time I see it on a sandwich board or something it makes me laugh. We spent one night drinking in Montreal trying to think of as many euphemisms for body parts as we could, so it reminds me of being young and carefree like we were that night.

8. What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?

Being a food critic. How is that even work? Or a travel writer.

9. What profession would you not like to do?

Being a politician. I like the whole “making a difference,” deal, but I wouldn’t like towing the party line or speaking publicly. Or being careful about what I was saying.

10. If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?

Good job. All those hateful people who said they were religious were totally off base.
