If you were to be cast as part of a comedy double act, which part would you play…. the straight man or the funny one, and why?
I think I’d be the straight person. I’m pretty bad at telling jokes.
If you were to be reincarnated on Earth as any non-living/inanimate object of your choosing, what would you come back as and why?
To be perfectly honest the way the world seems to be heading there seems very little point in coming back at all even as an inanimate object. I wouldn’t want to be a tree and get chopped down. I think many modern buildings are hideous and I can’t think of any reason I’d want to be some kind of vehicle. So I’m hoping that reincarnation is not a thing after all.
We all know how dogs mark their territory. How do you mark your territory?
With my stuff. I put out my dolls, my books and my sentimental bits and pieces and they turn my home into my castle.
If you were on a trivia show and had to correctly answer ten questions in one subject to win a million dollars (or whatever currency is used in your locale), what would you hope the category would be?
That’s a very good question. I like trivia and lists of things. We play Scattergories a lot but I’m afraid my memory is not what it was. I like to say that the hard drive that is my brain is getting so cluttered with information that I have trouble retrieving it on demand. I think that I’d choose history for my category. I’m better at remembering the far past.
In democratic societies, do you believe that the right to vote is merely a privilege or a duty for all citizens? This should not be thought of as an “Americans only” question. ANY ONE is welcome to answer.
I think that the right to vote is a privilege and a duty. Those of us who live in countries where we are free to vote for our leaders are very fortunate. Many people would die for that right, many have died for it. I don’t think we value it anywhere near enough. In Australia voting in state and federal elections is compulsory and I always feel annoyed when I hear people complaining about having to go and vote and not taking it seriously. I do believe that it is our duty to vote . If you don’t vote what right do you have to complain if you don’t like the outcome of the election? Elections are still the best way for people to choose how they want to be governed. We should take the time to become familiar with the policies of each party and look at their track records. An election is not a popularity contest, you shouldn’t be voting for the person your partner/parents/friends vote for unless you think that person or party is the best for the job. You shouldn’t be choosing because of comments that the leader made on social media, because you think he’s funny or supports the same football team as you. You only have one vote. Make it count.
