1. I didn't learn Greek in school - I learned it by spending four months imitating the Greek ambassador to Japan. I kind of botched the whole job, but I picked up a lot of Greek in the act. It's amazing how far a thick, bushy fake moustache will get you.
2. My first childhood romance was with the ghost of a jaguar.
3. Everything in my house operates by clockwork and windpower. My television, my heating, my lights, my Linux machine, my pet hamster, my boyish charm - everything. On a still day, everything grinds to a halt, and I sit in a dark corner, crying.
