1. What's your favourite flag, and why?
I like countries that put a bit of thought into their flag. I mean, tricolours? Crosses of various colours on various backgrounds? Please. I think the Brazilian flag looks very bright and friendly, and of course it reminds me both of the World Cup and all those lovely Brazilian girls. At the World Cup.

Hell, it even has a football on it! Them Brazilians sure love their football!

2. What was the last TV show you just completed and really enjoyed?
Last one I completed was yesterday, Devils. It was good... but not quite what I expected. I'm not that into high-finance/bankers-rule-the-world/conspiracy stuff. Thought it would be something different. It was good though. Final series of French crime drama Spiral was excellent, though I did NOT expect the ending. As far as really enjoyed though, I think it would be The Bridge. Now there's some fine Nordic crime drama! Highly recommended.
3. If you could live in any other state, or country, where would it be and why?
A State of Happiness.
4. What is the thing or things that have made you "grow up" or mature in the last, say, ten years?
Obv, having to look after Karen. When you literally have to wipe someone's arse, catch their puke, floss their teeth and clean their nose, it makes you grow up real quick.
5. What's your favourite shark?
All hail the alien overlord Hammerhead, coolest and weirdest of sharks!
6. Turn on your TV and write down the first three sentences someone says

"Previously, on Resident Alien...
Where did you say you actually saw the alien again?
You can read about that in the book I'm writing."

I'll definitely let you know when I start Eyeless; it'll be nice to read that simultaneously and have the benefit of your thoughts. I'm currently about a third of the way through Middlemarch (thanks, Marie), so still a long way to go - but perhaps I can do some overlap reading.
Thanks, ribbons! I hope my recs don't turn out too disappointing.

1. What's your favourite flag, and why?

The LGBT flag, because flags are f*cking gay.

2. What was the last TV show you just completed and really enjoyed?

Haikyuu! It's an anime about volleyball and it somehow turned me into both a weeb AND a jock.

3. If you could live in any other state, or country, where would it be and why?

Either NYC to be with my girlfriend, or Minnesota to be with my best friend.

4. What is the thing or things that have made you "grow up" or mature in the last, say, ten years?

Accepting myself as a f*g*tt.

5. What's your favourite shark?

It's hammer time.

6. Turn on your TV and write down the first three sentences someone says

"President Biden today"

You could recommend a pamphlet and not disappoint.

Read any good pamphlets lately?

Goblin sharks are weirder than Hammerhead sharks - everyone knows that.

That's three words, not three sentences.

Weird yes, but also fugly. Hammerheads aren't fugly, they're cute. You just want to pick two of them up, cross them over and go Pink Floyd-style down the road with them, turning this way and that... well maybe. Hammerheads>Goblins (of which I was not aware until now, thanks for the nightmare!)

Agrees, tries to swim after ribbons; realises can't swim, drowns. Is eaten by Goblin shark (or should that be gobblin' shark?)
