Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Why stay between the lines?

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. Who are you (I'm very bad at recognising people), and am I dreaming?

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. Hmmm. I dread to think! I wear a lot of stripes, and am often in big boots.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. I would like an hour as my dog. Just to see what it's like to run at 30mph. I like being me though.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. That would be really really boring! But I do love baked beans on toast, with cheese on the top.
