Mickey, what's pre-revolutionary France doing on a spaceship? Get a little perspective!


Why were you given your particular name?

I'm going to sort of steal Heather Anne's answer and say that almost every girl baby born in 1982 was named Jennifer. Almost all of THOSE babies were named Jennifer Lynn. Which is why I've spent the majority of my adult life answering to variations of my last name.

Before I was born, my parents thought I was going to be a boy and they were going to name me PJ. For Philip James, I think. Or Patrick. But let's go with Philip. Because! If they had named me Philip James and I married Stephen Fry when I grew up and I took his last name, MY NAME TOTALLY WOULD HAVE BEEN PHILIP J. FRY. I KNOW.

What is your favorite thing to do?

Lately it's been this: watching Doctor Who with Joe while wearing pajamas and petting Max, who is asleep on my lap, AND ALSO eating freshly popped popcorn.

What is your favorite food?

Pizza. All the time. Like, you could hand me some pizza at pretty much any time of day and I'd be all, "GIVE ME THAT PIZZA OR I WILL BITE YOUR FACE OFF."

What is your favorite book?

DON'T MAKE ME CHOOSE. Anyway. This answer varies, like, hourly, but I do seem to reread The Handmaid's Tale, Fahrenheit 451, and 1984 quite a lot. Oh, what am I saying, the answer is obviously Pride & Prejudice.

What is your favorite candy bar?


What is your favorite cookie?

Snickerdoodles. Not really. I mean, I like them a lot, and the name is fun to say, but the answer is chocolate chip cookies, freshly baked.

What is your favorite sport?


What is your favorite song?

POISON. Not really. I just wanted to post this video.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

I don't want to grow up. GROWING UP IS FOR SUCKERS.

What place would you like to visit?

Hogwarts. Like now, please.

What is your favorite thing about your mom?

She appreciates the merits of the awesomely ridiculous Lost in Austen.

What is your favorite thing about your dad?

He appreciates the merits of a well-timed smart ass remark.

What is your favorite thing about yourself?

Um...I have lots of t-shirts?

What are three adjectives best describe you?

What is this, a job interview? I refuse to answer this.

In five years, what kind of person will you be?

Cleverer, I hope. And maybe a little less procrastinatey.

In ten years, what kind of person will you be?

I'll answer this later.

I have never read The Handmaid's Tale. I sense that I'm going to have to get me to a library. Also, your refusal on grounds of job-interviewish questions quite literally made me laugh out loud.

So what IS your favorite song?

I can't pick a favorite song. I'm so bad at picking favorites.
