  21. I like kookaburras, a lot.
  22. John Lennon is my favourite Beatle, of course.
  23. Sidney Poitier is my favourite actor. Did you see him dance in To Sir With Love? I love Sidney Poitier. Then he fed tinned peaches to Elizabeth Hartman in A Patch of Blue and she said “What is this amazing food?” because she was blind and had never eaten them before. Great film.
  24. Elizabeth Hartman wasn’t blind, the character she played in the film was blind.
  25. I digress.
  26. I have always loved films.
  27. When I was a kid I used to set my alarm and get up at 2 or 3 in the morning to watch the late, late movie. I had the volume right down and sat right in front of the tellie in case I woke up my parents because I knew I’d be in big trouble for being up so late on a school night. I was half asleep when I watched Casablanca, Harvey, The Maltese Falcon, Shall we Dance?, It Happened One Night and All About Eve.
  28. I can’t remember any of those films – I was half asleep.
  29. When I was a kid I used to cook all the time: cakes, biscuits, souffles, profiteroles, quiche, pavlovas by the dozen. All the stuff we used to eat back then and it was all delicious. But I don’t like cooking anymore.
  30. I think when I’m an old lady I’ll enjoy cooking again.
  31. I hope I get to be an old, old lady with a possum in the backyard tree.
  32. These aren’t really facts.
  33. Sorry.
