Real neat blog award

I don’t usually participate in blog awards but I was described as a “young Australian” (note the young) by the person who nominated me. Since flattery will get you everywhere, I thought I’d participate. However, I’m not going to nominate anyone else. Not because I don’t think there are some fab blogs out there, there are, but because it feels a bit like chain mail. Instead I’m going to answer the questions I was asked and if others would also like to answer them, then please do so in the comments.

Here are the questions and my answers:

How many states are there in Canada?

None. Canada has provinces, I believe.

If you could invite any 3 people to dinner, who would you invite?

Peter Singer, Bill Bryson, and Jane Austen (assuming I can invite dead people)

If you were an actor, who would you be?

Audrey Hepburn, of course.

If you could take a month long holiday anywhere in the world, where would you go and, who would you most like to go with?

I’d travel all over Scotland with my family.

What is the capital of Vancouver?

Vancouver is a city and so I don’t think it has a capital.

If there was one thing you could change about the way you look, what would that be?

Bigger boobs? No, just kidding 🙂 I’m not sure. I’m pretty happy with the way I look. Maybe I’d get rid of those grey hairs that seem to be spreading at the speed of light on my head.

What is the most imminent problem facing mankind today? And, what would you do to fix it?

Climate change. What would I do? I’d ban cars from towns and cities and build bicycle lanes everywhere. I’d invest heavily in carbon-free energy sources, improve trains, and introduce trams where there are none. Then I’d make everyone go vegetarian 🙂
