Questions from Annette!

Annette asks:

1. What do you consider your best qualities?

My spectacular, nay overwhelming, nigh-unto GODLIKE modesty.

2. I know you want to get into film one day – have you ever considered any other careers?

I actively considered a career as a realtor, at one stage. But only for the money, it was certainly being considered as something which, if you were good at it, would be a real money-maker. Given my deep geekyness (Note: I typo’d that as ‘feed geepyness’ .. I was tempted to leave it like that) a career involving computers was pretty much a given. And that’s turned out to be reasonably lucrative also, so all’s well that ends well. I have given some thought to starting my own cult, complete with compound and nubile cultists. Also, Televangelists seem to be making a pile of cash just by asking for it, and mentioning Jesus. That’s not a business model that would work with me as a customer, but there does seem to be a market for it.

3. Did you ever have an invisible friend?

I actually had an invisible enemy. His name was “The Scourge”. Seriously, this is true. I used to drop off to sleep while imagining him doing all the traditional evil things, like shaking his fist at me, or laughing maniacally at my pain. I wonder whatever happened to that guy?

4. 10 years ago, what did you think your life would be like now?

I was supposed to be RETIRED by now. I mean, I’m over thirty! That’s practically DEAD! Optinally extras to this dream was that I be retired, and ruling all I could see from a throne made from the still-sticky bones of my enemies. Obviously I am not retired, and I no longer strongly desire a throne, BUT with the excellent invention of the lifegem I can now settle for having a cup decorated with the lifegems of my vanquished enemies. Perhaps the cup could be made of the skull of my greatest enemy, just to sort of cap the whole thing off. I’m still open to options on this.

5. Who do you admire?

Oh, lots of people. Principally, my mum. She’s such a great old gal, you know? And despite the fact that she’s terrifying and opressive, she did manage to put up with a TRULY SPECTACULAR ARRAY of teenage/twenty-ish idiocy and asshole-ness from me, without having me (or herself) committed to an institution.

If you want me to interview you–post a comment. I’ll respond with questions for you to take back to your own journal and answer as a post. Of course, they’ll be different for each person since this is an interview and not a general survey. At the bottom of your post, after answering the Interviewer’s questions, you ask if anyone wants to be interviewed. So it becomes your turn– in the comments, you ask them any questions you have for them to take back to their journals and answer. And so it becomes the circle.
