How on earth does anyone know that? Unless of course, they don't wash at all.

I had to guesstimate by knowing my habits. I wash my hands when I'm in the bathroom and before I prepare food, so I guessed about half a dozen times.

One person claimed to wash their hands 40-50 times a day. I :lol:ed and thought Step away from the soap, Lady Macbeth.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if I washed my hands 40 times a day. As well as bathroom visits, whenever I do anything with food, empty the litter tray, inject the cat, empty the bin, clean the loo, come in from gardening, clean off the blood after murdering neighbours who use power tools when I am trying to record... the list is endless.

Oops, that's given it away...

Have a care Ruth!

D'you know, Andy, the sad thing is that you are right. :( I suppose fluttering my eyelashes at said Knacker won't do any good? No... probably not (sigh). I am rather past that sort of thing.

Getting back on topic. I might become (in)famous, though.

It might get rid of some of my weeds, but as a headline it doesn't have much pizzazz, does it?

On the other hand, it might get you a few more paid gigs :wink:.

Speaking of which, I took the car over to France the other week and whilst sitting in the queue at Dover, there were sundry announcements about not leaving luggage and which boat was loading etc. The voice was very familiar. Was it you? Or just the generic slight Kent accent?

Haha! No sir, it was not I. But they obviously have good taste at Dover. ;)

Hoping that the old profile might get a little bigger soon as also got a part in Your Highness (out next year folks) which is quite unmissable (lines with Natalie Portman and everything - and before you ask - only briefly and very nice)!

Hi John,

I just saw Your Highness. You were awesome! :clap: A very memorable part of the movie. And working with James Franco and Natalie Portman is big. Congratulations! It doesn't surprise me. I was blown away by your intro to the werewolf book. I played it for my husband (a rare thing) because I wanted him to hear how good it is. And now your in this big movie....I told him--See I can spot talent.
I'm really happy for you!

Okay. Since I am the lingering last post in here, I will add that I cartooned for Reptiles Magazine. This fact may also work in the "how nerdy are you" forum.

Amy,

Congratulations on your recent and ongoing celebrity! :thumbs: :clap:

My only brush with a far-reaching (somewhat) voice acting work was to have recorded voices for the 1980 (showing my age) color versions of Astro Boy, the Japanese Mickey Mouse (so to speak). I can even be found on imdb.com with this credit, although my name and the name of my fellow English-speaking voice over actors do not appear on the DVD release.

You'll go on to more well-known roles, I'm sure! :D
