Nocturne on the Bosphorus - Lucien Levy-Dhurmer
15. What good thing happened this summer?
Mine and Johanna's trip to England to see Monty Python live was pretty great! I've been doing some filming for a little project I've been meaning to do for years, so that's great. OH AND AND AND we saw a glow worm. That was obviously the most important event.
32. Which celebrities would you have a threesome with?
First ones to spring to mind are Alan Davies and James McAvoy? I don’t know… I might have to get back to you on this one, it is too important to be glib about!
44. Trip to outer space or bottom of the ocean?
Neither. Deep sea animals make me furious with their insane bodies and baffling ways, and space seems like way more hassle than it’s worth. Can I go to a kelp forest instead? I’d do that.
80. What colour pants?
I HATE YOU SO MUCH FOR ASKING THIS what colour pants oh no
kbai i love yoooou
3. Who are you looking forward to seeing?
Everyone in the world except Naomi Von Monsta, who is just terrible and nowhere near one of my absolute favourite people in this world.
