The Not-so-Serious Interview

Hi, Andrew! Now that we’ve done the serious interview, let’s get to know the real you!

So, what were you like in school?
You’re hoping I’m going to say misfit, aren’t you? Or constantly truant maybe? I’m afraid I’m going to disappoint you, I was the kid in the corner who no one saw; I kept out of the way while the rockers beat up the mods, and while the gym teacher beat up the rockers and the mods. I was Mr Grey, Mr Average, and Mr Arsehole all in one. I didn’t go to Eaton but then again I didn’t end up selling crack on street corners, so all in all…

How would you describe yourself in three words?
Three words? Me? Are you kidding, I need a chapter just to ask for fish and chips!

If you had to sing a song in a talent show, what would it be and why?
Ha, all the songs I like you’ve probably never heard of. Anyway, let’s go for Halestorm’s Here’s to Us which is a pick-me-up song offering two fingers to everyone else, hehe. There are many others depending what mood I’m in.

I have indeed heard of Halestorm! Interesting choice!
If there was a movie produced about your life, who would play you and why?
Katy, what the hell are you doing to me! Okay, try this one for size: Remember the movie How to Train Your Dragon with the lead character called Hiccup? I’d like that actor to play me. He’s quirky, and so unsure of himself, so hesitant and compassionate but very sarcastic. Yeah, he’ll do. His name is Jay Baruchel.

I adore that film!
Right, so, there’s a zombie apocalypse and you can only use the item to your left to survive. What is it and how long would you live?
The item to my left is a telephone. So as long as the zombies held off for 15 minutes, maybe I could at least order a final pizza.

If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be?
There are many powers I’d like to have, but I think best of all would be flight. How cool would it be to miss the congestion on the M62 every morning.

Flight would certainly be useful!
If you were an animal, what would you be and why?
Toss up between cat (what would it be like to be ignorant and aloof, selfish, agile, and quick and elegant) and dog (happy, IQ of 3 so everything’s fun including bath time and haircut). But I’d settle for whale just to be different.

Whale is interesting!
If you could trade places with someone for a week, famous or not, real or fictional, alive or dead, who would it be and why?
Oooh, evil question. There are lots of people I’d like to be for a week, but the one I’d most like to be is me. I feel quite comfy being me, and I’m easy to get along with which is a bonus. But I’d like to choose when I became me, and I would choose a day about 20 years ago and make a different decision. Ahaha, now you’re wondering what that decision was aren’t you? Maybe one day.

Brilliant! Thanks, Andrew!
