Are you healthy? Generally I'm very healthy and trying to remain so as I battle against decay and age.
Ever spent a night in hospital? The last time was when I came off my motorbike on a hairpin bend and broke my thumb. I had a long pin put in under general anaesthetic, but when you have it taken out you see the nurse for five minutes, she produces an enormous pair of pliers and just yanks it. You feel an incredible amount of pain for less than a millisecond and then it's all over.
Notable accidents I performed a textbook demonstration of how to turn a car over in a field in France. I was hanging upside down and rather than having my life flash before me I couldn't stop thinking about the David Lynch film, Wild at Heart, with that terrible car crash.
Do you worry about your weight? I'm very skinny and have a naturally fast metabolism, but at a certain age one wants to avoid looking in the mirror in profile and seeing a pregnant stick insect, so I need to keep in shape.
What exercise do you take? I'm trying to do more so my latest strategy, because I'm very poor at discipline, is a little and often. I run for a couple of minutes and lift the phone book up a couple of times and operate on the fringes of the world of yoga.
How much do you drink? I have the sort of personality that could easily drink too much, but luckily my constitution renders me unconscious so quickly I'm not really in a position to have a major drink problem.
Attitude to smoking? I've never smoked, but I am very equable and sympathetic to those who do because it's a very strong addiction. My mother smoked all her life and died of lung cancer. The most disturbing thing isn't your imminent death, which it will bring about, but the side effects of smoking. You may get to 83, like my dad, having smoked all your life, and you've won that particular battle, but it's not great on the journey.
Is sex important to you? Crikey, there is an interesting question. Yes, being a human and of human nature it's very important.★
