Mumpo: I'm an artist, you know. I'd love to paint your picture. I specialise in nudes. Would you pose for me?

Girl: Wow! Yeah! Are you in the Royal Academy, or something?

Mumpo: Er, no, I'm not. In fact, I haven't even got Art O Level, but I have got a cracking watercolour paint set ... wait! come back!

Christ no. I like working with wood, not hanging about on it.

In 1997, I wouldn't have left Boston to move to Boulder. That was dumb. I'm not sure what I would have done otherwise, but not that.

Actually, if I had to do it again, I wouldn't go to grad school in Boston at all. I would have set about this industry journalism thing while I was still in college instead of finding it at age 28.

I could've used yer bloody help on a DIY project that's nigh on two years without completion.

Bah.

If there's anyone who wishes they'd become an electrician, I could use their help as well.

At 'O' level, I was forced to drop history and art, both subjects I would have loved to have pursued, while I was obliged to take both physics and chemistry, despite the fact that I clearly had no aptitude for science - as well as, of course, religious studies, this being a Catholic school. Still bitter about that - but it wasn't my choice.

'O' level options were appallingly restricitive, weren't they. i was coerced into taking Chemistry, too.

People always seem to say they have no regrets (in interviews and the like). I don't see why regrets are a bad thing, as long as you don't dwell on them. I have several every day ("If only I hadn't put that cup so close to the edge, I wouldn't have knocked it all over my feet when I turned round. Stupid").
I'd have trouble picking just one. Maybe not drinking so much when I was a teenager. That might have changed a whole lot of plotlines.

I agree. There's no point in crying over spilt milk, to use the cliche, but one also has to have the ability to aknowledge that one has fucked up, otherwise you'll just keep fucking up the same thing over and over. Life is much more enjoyable when you can "live and learn."

I admit I'm not very good at the former point. I tend to dwell on the past and replay past decisions over and over. I'm not as bad about that as I used to be, but I still do it more than is rational. That's also one of the reasons why I never amounted to much of a baseball player.
