Wrote ‘Are Australians Racist?’, p69 What year of your life would you time travel back to? I really enjoy the present. I dislike looking back. I remember in my final year of high school, I refused to buy a year 12 jumper or a yearbook. And I throw away a lot of sentimental objects. What’s a bad movie that you secretly love? The Rewrite. It’s this awful movie in which Hugh Grant plays a washedup screenwriter, teaching a creative writing class in the US. I have a long-term crush on despicable Hugh Grant characters, they make me shake my head and smile. What’s your idea of heaven? For me, heaven is a real place for which all human beings feel a kind of homesickness. What Aussie slang do you use? I say “what a dog”, “woulda” and “shoulda” and I mean it. I say “carn” and “g’day mate” when I want to make fun of myself and my friends.
