Cool Kids
I was hanging around with the rhinoceroses at Whipsnade Zoo today, and that is a cool animal. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a rhinoceros up close before but it is the coolest animal I think I’ve ever seen. It looks like a sort of an animatronic version of a dinosaur that hasn’t quite been invented. It does not look real, unless they’re all animatronic then none of them are real. I don’t know. But there was a big one and a little one; it was the cutest thing I’d ever seen and endlessly fascinating. The coolest animal now, declared by me.

Emergency Questions

If you could take one item from any museum or art gallery – and you’re allowed to take it home with you – in the world, what would you take?

Any painting? Uh, gosh.  Might just go to the Natural History Museum. Just take anything because it’s not British; it’s just stolen anyway. Right? *Makes grabbing motion.* Now you know how it feels. Just get something. Anything.

Who’s the most surprising famous person you’ve been in a lift with? And which I mean, you can’t have gotten into the lift with them; they had to be in the lift you were in.

Gosh. In a lift with a famous person? Have I? You are overestimating my lifestyle, mate. *RH notes that it could be as simple as running into a minor celebrity at a shopping centre.* I go to Westfield. There’s too many people. I’ve ended up just, like, kicking somebody in the back of the head. Have I been in a lift with someone famous? Um, Lee Ryan from Blue. Yeah. Mm hmm. Is that good? He’s a bit of a geezer, mate. He’s down-to-earth. He’s like… I don’t know. For some reason I always think singers would be divas but, like, nah. I was like, “Hey dude.” And I was like, “Mate, you ‘re a singer, man. Be a diva. Tell me to shut up or something. Just look at me and go, “No pictures.'” He was a cool guy. Really laid-back.
