It’s time for me to go gather my parental units from the aeroport.
6. This is actually a pretty rough for me to answer because I don’t know who is considered most famous. I met John Glenn (first American in space) and Sylvia Earle (marine biologist) when I was really young. I met former president Bush when I performed a gig at the White House (under somewhat amusing circumstances). I met Michael Vaughan (English Cricket Team Captain), John Cleese, and Prince William in St Andrews also under amusing circumstances.
20. At 11.11 AM: lunch. At 11.11 PM: another pint.
Nah, I’m messing with you, but you already know.
23. Something that has made me mad recently… hmmm… I tend to not get so angry. It takes a LOT of effort to piss me off. Umm, the most recent thing someone did to piss me off was, umm, I dunno, try to steal my pint? Bluh, the last time I got seriously angry ended with me leaving a party because I forcefully separated a fellow from his ex girlfriend whom he was scaring with his agression.
4. I have a few turnoffs: anything more than casual drug use freaks me the fuck out. Umm, a violent nature. Ignorance and stupidity are big turnoffs. Yeah…
7. Well, I really want to stay involved in physics, and I think I will, but I don’t really know. I plan on applying for the astronaut programme because I’ll be fully qualified after I finish the PhD. I really want to stay in academia; I want to teach.
19. I’m really bad at dancing. Like, REALLY bad.
25. Your question: “How do I feel about silence?”
I quite like it! Every once in a while I just need to sit somewhere without the noise of the city to distract me. It’s one of the reasons I really liked going backpacking in Montana and Wyoming: sitting on a peak or a ridge looking out over the vista, and just… enjoying the silence.
You assume that I’m sharing the most private details of my life; my innermost thoughts and dreams. Nope, I’m basically just saying what I’d tell anyone who asked, like I said. And yeah, I’m sharing with strangers, but it’s no different to me than a drunken evening in a pub talking bollocks with the folks you just met. Plus I’ve not written anything I see regretting; I’m careful(ish) about that, and I do my best to not be unkind about those I write.
I suppose it possibly comes from a sort of emotional exhibitionism. Perhaps it’s leading by example: a more open, honest world? Heh, probably not. Remember: every narrator is unreliable, not necessarily because they are lying, but because there will ALWAYS be a bias. Perhaps I just like feeling like I’m being understood by someone; anyone.
So I’ve not even really answered this because I don’t even know. I don’t share nearly as much on here as I do with my closest friends, though.
One is definitely Ryan Gosling. I’ve only seen one film with him in it, and it was all right, but it’s mostly because of the feminist meme surrounding him. Plus, he’s a snappy dresser.
Another would have to be Josh Groban. He’s hilarious, brilliant, and an amazing singer. He also made one of the greatest fake adverts ever for a 48-cd set of original songs based around Kanye West’s tweets. Not to mention the fact that he’s like an adorable hipster.
And as for a third I’d have to choose Benedict Cumberbatch. He’s a great actor, very intelligent, and seems like a fun person to know.
In the runners-up category: David Tennant and Jensen Ackles. Better luck next time, lads.
watching old “Never Mind the Buzzcocks” episodes. Yeah, I’m awesome…
Stating (NOT proving, as he so helpfully let me know) that 6 is a prime number since 2008.
Because there’s an ask button, I’ve enabled it, and I don’t see any reason to not be honest. If anyone asked me these questions in person I’d answer them, too, though I may pause to think about my answer.
Fair question, though. Thanks for asking.
