Bizarre - #50 - Oct. 2001
What's the most terrifying thing that's ever happened to you?
Christmas 1999 storm whilst at home in France. After the storm raged in the North, causing havoc in Paris it travelled South. The violence was unbelievable- don't get me wrong, I love a good storm- but this was something else. A true sense of powerlessness whilst all about us banged and roared! When the ground shook after a particularly loud crash and splitting we thought, that was it- buried alive in our collapsing house! When we realised that our home and ourselves were still standing we discovered the top half of a very tall Spanish Cedar lying a few feet away from the house along with two Horse Chestnut trees! A sense of awe and unbelievable luck pervaded in the aftermath. Bow down to Mother Nature. Yeah!!!
Who would play you in the biopic of your life?
In various stages; Snow White, Beryl the Peril, Betty Boop, and the Snow Queen!
What piece of music or song would you like played at your funeral?
'El Dia De Los Muertos', the B-side to the Banshees' single 'The Last Beat Of My Heart'- uplifting and irreverent.
What drugs should be made legal?
All recreational drugs- provided absolute information on side effects accompanies them, so the individual can make an educated choice. Let's get rid of the hypocrisy surrounding alcohol and tobacco and the taboo allure of illegal substances.
Tell us the sickest joke you know.
Q: What's the hardest part of a vegetable to eat?
A: The wheel chair.
