1. If you could, would you be a movie star or a rock star?

2. Have you ever been in the media (TV, Radio, Papers)?

3. Do you know anyone who's been on a reality TV show?

4. Have you ever met anyone famous?

5. Who would play you in a movie?

1) I wouldn't mind being a star, but in a much smaller way - say, first oboe in a symphony orchestra.

2) Yes. I think the most fun was when I was in northern Brazil and had to be rushed from one TV studio to another, and then to a radio station - all to do interviews in my rather primitive Portuguese. Apparently they don't get many foreign official in Natal (which was a lovely place). The most embarassing was the time I rushed to the opening of an art show in El Salvador, and gave the welcome speech for TV and the papers, only to discover after the fact that I had on two different coloured shoes (curse my habit of buying multiples when I find something that fits! Thankfully, one was black, the other was navy, and the lights were low).

3) My son's hockey coach tried out for Canadian Idol a couple of times. He didn't get on.

4) Lots of political famous people, but the only popular famous person was Christopher Reeve. He came to a reception to celebrate the banning of driftnet fishing when I was working at the Canadian mission to the UN (it was one of my files). My colleague and I had a very grown-up conversation with him about protecting the oceans. When it was over, we hid behind a potted palm so we could swoon like schoolgirls. He was every bit as handsome and charming as one would expect Superman to be.

5) Angela Lansbury, back when she was playing Jessica Fletcher (middle aged, likes to travel, takes no guff, and doesn't worry about being perfectly dressed). Failing that, Amy Schumer (though she's younger than me, I like her smart mouth, the fact that she is comfortable in her own skin, and takes no guff).
