Rare roast beef.

4. Do you have kids?
Two. Twin girls, will be five in a little over a month.

5. If you were another person would you be friends with you?
Probably not. I'm a bit on the anti-social side; very awkward and ill-at ease socially. I really don't have many friends.

Red. Pink is too wishy-washy, as if it started to go somewhere and gave up halfway.

Lack of willpower. With diet, with writing, being creative. I have time to write more, I spend an hour and a half a day on trains, but I don't.

My aunt who dies when I was little. I think she would have gotten me in a way others don't.
