Q. Are you a Hunter or a Gatherer?
Q.What do you think about when you’re alone driving in your car?
There are several things…. but the one that always seems to take up the majority of my time is the absolute poor standard of driving that I witness every day. Drivers who continually fail to “KEEP LEFT” because they don’t know how to “merge” (because they steer their car, not drive it!) & believe they have the right to sit in the right-hand lane below the speed limit, yet will jump 4 lanes of traffic in 100m to get on or off the freeway!! Oh, and will enter the freeway doing 60-70kmh & wonder why they struggle to merge with cars doing 100kmh! Other than that……. where my next travel destination will be & when! 😛
Q. If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why?
A. Wolf. Because these animals are majestic, loyal and protective about the pack. Yet, have a fierce side to them when crossed and can also enjoy being alone at times.
Q. What was the last gift you gave someone?
A. You’re reading it!!!
Q. What do you want to be when you grow up?
A. A full-time race car driver, well that is still the dream.
Q. What’s the most interesting thing about you that most people wouldn’t know?
A. That I have represented Australia for over 100 International Volleyball Games (beach and Indoor) and continue to still be involved to this day.
Q. If you were on death row, what would your last meal be?
A. 2-3 lamb shanks, with mashed potato, gravy & steamed vegetables. Followed by either a Granny Smiths Apple Pie with thick cream or a French Vanilla Cheesecake sprinkled with dairy milk chocolate flakes
Q. What’s the most important innovation you have witnessed in your lifetime?
A. Airbags in road cars. Continuing on from the poor standard of driving I witness every day; it is a little more reassuring that technical innovation in car safety is aiding in the safety of the innocent from the idiots that shouldn’t be driving.
Q. What is an ability you wish you had?
A. To heal by touch
Q. What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
A. French Snails in Paris……. I’m not very adventurous when it comes to food. Although…. these were quite tasty & surprisingly chewy.
