Bio 21 Questions Blog Promotion
  1. Who is your favorite literary character?

    I'd have to say James Bond. I mean, who's cooler than that?

  2. you could make a cameo appearance in a show, what show would it be?

    I'd like to be a guest investor on Dragon's Den/Shark Tank. I'd love to help some struggling guy make his dream come true.

  3. What is your greatest fear?

    Getting old. It's the scariest thing you'll ever do, trust me.

  4. One thing you could eat for the rest of your life?

    It's a three-way tie between pizza, hamburgers and chocolate.

  5. Favorite movie? Worst movie?

    My favourite movie is a little-known comedy starring Bill Murray and Richard Dreyfuss entitled 'What About Bob?'. My selection for worst movie is a toughie, because usually a movie that falls into this category I've watched only once and then never seen again. I know this might seem to run against conventional wisdom, but I'm going to say 'Citizen Kane'. I am aware it was supposedly ground-breaking in its use of cinematography, music and lighting effects, etc., etc., etc., but I really did not like it and will never watch it again.

  6. If you could be born again into any era, which would you choose?

    I'd like to have been born into the wealthy aristocracy of 18th century Europe and to have been able to listen to the music and meet in person the great composers of that era, such as Mozart and Haydn.

  7. Last text message I sent...

    "I'll be there to pick you up at 5:00 p.m., pumpkin."

    Never turn down an opportunity to visit the washroom.

    "Mama, Screw Your Wig on Tight" by Lee Roy Parnell

  10. Ultimate vacation?

    To play the world's top 100 golf courses on a year-long hiatus with my brother, Ron.

  11. What do you consider your greatest achievement?

    To having successfully raised two daughters through the minefield of teenism.

  12. What is your favorite cartoon/comic character?

    My favourite cartoon is 'The Far Side', followed closely by 'Calvin and Hobbes'.

  13. If you weren't drawing, what would you be doing?

    I'd be playing my violin in the National Arts Centre Orchestra of Canada, which, incidentally, I have been doing professionally for the past 35 years.

  14. My biggest pet peeve is...

    People who mix up "your", "you're" and "yore"

  15. Who do you admire/who is your role model?

    My father comes to mind, of course - as it probably would with many people - but I would like to add my former violin teacher to this list. He was, and still is, a man of complete commitment to the task at hand. His name is Dr. Howard Leyton-Brown and he always played to win, no matter what the activity and he always strove for excellence and perfection, no matter the odds against him.

  16. When was the last time you laughed really hard?

    About a year-and-a-half ago, when my brother and I thought up a particularly funny cartoon about a piñata costume. We were literally rolling on the floor in pain. Good times.

  17. One thing you couldn’t live without?

    I think the one thing I could not live without would be oxygen, followed closely by humor and then toilet paper.

  18. Guilty pleasure?

    Sneaking in 10-minute, lie-down rest periods throughout the day - where my Restless Leg Syndrome is free to do its thing.

  19. What is your greatest extravagance?

    Dreaming of one day setting up and enjoying the quiet solitude of playing on the 6'x12' snooker table that I have had stored in my garage for the past 30 years.

  20. The best advice you've ever gotten?

    There are three kinds of people in this world - those who can count and those who can't.

  21. I know it's weird but I think...

    The funnies page is the most important part of the newspaper.
