"update with eight" feat. Tim
What was your first job?
I worked in a video store (remember those?) It was the least stressful job I've had, with working in a 24-hour deli coming in as a close second.
What was the last book you read?
An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth - Chris Hadfield. I enjoyed hearing his perspective and the anecdotes about space, but I am not sure I could live my life by his philosophies: it sounds like a lot of work with no room for fun!
What was the last movie you have seen?
Annihilation. It was enjoyable and worth watching, but not as good as Garland's first film, Ex Machina.
If you could have any three dinner companions who would they be?
Ricky Gervais, as he cracks me up while being insightful (and he would love my dog).
Neil deGrasse Tyson, for his huge brain and passion for science and science communication.
Simone Giertz, for her light-hearted take on the world and her inspirational story of turning a self-taught hobby into a successful media career combining science and humour.
If you could choose another career?
Opening batsman for the Australian Cricket Team.
What superpower would you like to have?
Immune to procrastination. I'm sure my coworkers would appreciate me having this power, too!
Whose mind would you like to read?
George R.R. Martin, because I can't handle the suspense anymore.
Best award you have ever won?
When I was eight I won a competition for a huge box of sweet Jurassic Park loot!
