The best thing about my job is...

The number of people in advertising I would consider to be among my best friends. Then again, I went to a comprehensive school carrying a briefcase (and butched it out for five solid years as an act of defiance) so I didn't have any friends until I was 16.

The key thing I've learnt recently is...

To try to stop beating myself up. I still administer the occasional self-aimed shoeing. But the new stretch ambition is inner peace.

The best advice I've ever had is...

If you can't spot the tosser in a room within ten minutes, it's you.

If I was 21 again, I would...

Never have admitted to Heidi, the double-jointed German beauty who was leading me down to Faliraki's darkened beach, that I was not, in fact, a fringe member of Man Utd's first team.

The thing that really inspires me is...

A beautifully poetic piece of prose.

The last time I was embarrassed was...

When I was doing my brother's best man speech. I had a little cry while quoting Rolf Harris lyrics. A new low.

The last time I was excited was...

Sat in my new car, heading for the sea.

I'd describe my personal style as...

Heart on sleeve. I tried to be enigmatic once. It lasted as long as it took someone to say something stupid.

I really love...

Staring at my walls. I'm addicted to shelling out for creased and tattered original film posters and photos. Every one tells a story. Sometimes a sad one.

I really wish I had...

Inner peace. Or a 1952 Porsche 356 Carrera Speedster. Whichever is easier.

I really wish I hadn't...

Blamed it all on a simple twist of fate.

The worst thing about me is...

I spend the first 80 per cent of a holiday feeling homesick, then want to live there forever.

You might not know this but I'm...

A frustrated novelist. Best feedback so far: "This is culty, unconventional and funny. But I didn't like the bit where the cat is buried alive." You just can't please cat lovers, it seems.
