Where would you like to live?
I would like to split my time equally between the South of France, London, New Orleans and the rest of the world.

"Burger, what the fuck took you so long? Henry, John and Gregor have been asking for you. Beers are in the fridge Dickhead, help yourself. By the way nothing is bad for you anymore - Let me know if you need aaaanything okay?... Oh before you go, what
the fuck is Gaz up to? We were expecting him ages ago."
