Do you believe there’s intelligent life on other planets?

I think it’s ignorant and selfish to think we’re the only ones out there, or that we’re the most developed and intelligent. Think about how big the universe is – and could there be more than one? What is ‘intelligent’ to us may not be to them. We could be the flecks of dust on a giant’s foot. Who knows?

Do you believe in God?

Tricky. I would say no, but then I’d be frightened that he heard me. That’s the problem with a Catholic education. I have serious doubts about there being a God, but what annoys me more are the people who force you to make up your mind. What’s wrong with being undecided? I don’t want to be on either side of the fence. I’m happy thinking there might be something up there, but I don’t expect it to have a white beard or a son who’s been kicking around a few years previous.

RealDMitchell: @allidid Who are you getting to front it?

allidid: @RealDMitchell Thanks for your reply 🙂 Nobody is fronting it currently. Is it something you’d be interested in?

RealDMitchell @allidid No, I was just joking. Sounds like an excellent message but I don’t think I could take the irony.

Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

It depends on the situation. I’m more extrovert than introvert, but it relies heavily on my frame of mind and the people I’m with. I enjoy company and can be a pain in the backside with my need to share the most mundane aspects of my life with people (this is a perfect example), but there are times I like to keep myself to myself.

If you could go on vacation for the next month with an unlimited budget, where would you go?

If safety was guaranteed, Egypt. All month long, just wandering about the place. It’s fascinating. So much history, so many secrets. I’d probably end up hunting for a Daniel Jackson lookalike kicking about the place, but that’s all part of the plan!

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

If I could do it all over again (and have the relevant talent for it), I’d be a writer. I’d love to write a novel. Everyone’s got a novel in them, I hear. I once had a dream that I invented a little bit of plastic that turned a laser into a lightsaber. That wouldn’t be so bad either. Lightsabers for all!
