If I weren't talking to you right now I'd be...

Cleaning up my kitchen, including the half a chicken in a pot that I'd planned to make domestic goddess-style stock out of. But so far it's just a rotting old half chicken in a smelly pot.

A common misperception of me is...

That I have strong opinions. I'm a sheep when it comes to opinions, I will change my mind and jump on the bandwagon.

I am not a politician but...

Surely the battery hen-style cramming of the Central line at rush hour goes against our basic human rights?

I'm good at...

Listening. I can listen to a stranger banging on about someone else's love life for an obscene amount of time.

I'm very bad at...

Not falling over. I fall over constantly. I fell over at the bar in Home House last weekend. People were openly laughing. I just crumpled to the floor - no warning, no explanation. I'm just clumsy and not observant. I must admit I was drunk that particular night though.

You know me as a comedienne but in truer life I would have been...

Probably just a big loser.

The best age to be is...

I'd say that it's pretty good to be about two and a half years old. Or five. I'd say that five's a good laugh.
