Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Contents - with TIM ROSS

You’re a build­ing afi­cionado. Did you ever think about be­ing an ar­chi­tect?arch Never. I wo would pity the fool who’d let me de­sign a house­hou for them. Wha What stopped you? Be hon­est – was it the maths? Yes… And the draw­ing bit. You also col­lect mid-cen­tury fur­ni­ture. Does that mean a lot of all-night ebay ben­ders? I’m banned. I have a bracelet around my leg that goes off if I log onto an auc­tion site. How do you keep tod­dlers off an Eames chair? You don’t. Life is tough. Surely there’s a “no balls in­side” rule over at the Ross house­hold? I wear pants in the kitchen, but oth­er­wise balls are al­lowed ev­ery­where. As a stand-up com­edy vet­eran, what’s your preshow warm-up: mind­ful breath­ing, pos­i­tive af­fir­ma­tions or a fist­ful of beta-block­ers? It’s still half a bot­tle of cheap red wine. And you’ve got another book out this month. What’s your rec­om­mended fix for writer’s block? I imag­ine driv­ing Ubers for a liv­ing. The Rum­pus Room by Tim Ross ($35.95), is out now.
