612 Brisbane got an interview with him on a slow day while waiting for the weather to clear, so they called out for questions to ask him in the pre-record, and my question got a big laugh out of him, said it was "witty". And I think it sounds genuine as well. :)
(my question comes up about halfway through)
Considering Mr. Apted made me laugh by casting Denise Richards as nuclear scientist Dr. Christmas Jones, I consider us even. ;)
You may say it's a bit much, arrogant and self-aggrandizing of me to blog about this, put it on Facebook, seemingly flog this as some major comedic coup on broadcast media - it's not, and I know it's not. It's not the most brilliant thing ever said. It's one question, one quip, one gag, over in a matter of seconds then life moves on.
But in the last week, I was feeling really really down about myself, doubting my ability, and when someone gives you a compliment that at the very least sounds genuine, it really does help you feel better. And I needed it last week.
So bugger it. Just this once, I'll take that matter of seconds.
