It makes you a little nervous answering anonymous questions - you don't really know what's being asked. Scientists do say (although I don't get to chat to them often) that a bajillion of what is said is actually unsaid. If someone asked me these questions in person perhaps I would answer them in a different way, because I would see from what they were not saying in an unsaid manner that they were really saying something else. Or something.
Keep those questions coming, readers!
Would you rather be a famous musician or a famous actor?
I would be a great famous actor. I'd really enjoy dressing up to go on the red carpet and smile a lot and then dressing down but not really to go to the shops but you've actually called the photographers to let them know that you're off to fetch the paper. A little light plastic surgery...
...but then on the other hand, I've always had a mild hankering to be a swing king. I could rock it like Bobby Darin, or Mel Torme. I love Mel Torme. I am intensely familiar with the oeuvre of Andy Williams. I occasionally sit and daydream about being a crooner on a cruise ship, as silly as that may sound.
I think I would rather be a famous actor - because acting and making films would be incredible. I think there would be some scope there to record the odd soundtrack myself, though...
Dogs or cats?
I've been thinking about this one quite a bit recently - I really can't tell whether I'm a dog or a cat person. This probably counts as a fully-fledged identity crisis.
I like big cats - lions and tigers are probably my favourite land animals, but then little cats are aloof and have claws. Dogs are more characterful and fun, but they poo a lot and require extensive emotional assurance.
On balance, I'd probably say dogs, but it's quite a close one.
