If you were a box of cereal what would you be and why: I'd like to think I was fairly substantial and dependable like muesli, but I'm probably more frivolous than that. Coco Pops?
What did you want to be when you grew up: Actor, chef, or musician. I stumbled into academia and couldn't shake it off.
Where are you right now: Back chained to my computer in the Institute of Geography on Drummond Street after the all-too-brief Christmas holidays.
Tell us something about another staff writer: I haven't met anyone other than Becky who is a veritable powerhouse! She was very excited when I said I was getting married. We barely knew each other at the time and I thought that was lovely!
