(This is the latest in a series of Q&As where I, as James Franco, interview myself.)
Q: Isn’t life full of amusing ironies.
A: Excuse me.
Q: You know what I mean.
A: I’m sorry.
Q: We can be all Jeopardy about it if you insist. I will restate my answer in the form of a question. Why haven’t you been populating this amusing little blog of yours?
A: Work has been kind of busy. And I guess I’ve just been bad about making time for it. I miss it.
Q: So tell me, what sort of work has been keeping you so busy?
A: A lot of things. I have a couple different naming projects that were moving really fast. I’ve been doing a lot of food writing. I started writing a regular weekly feature for this one publication.
Q: You are quite the raconteur. And the nature of this weekly assignment is . . .?
A. It’s a Q&A.
A. Yeah, It’s been really fun. I’ve interviewed some great people.
Q: Jeebus, I hope the people you ask questions of are more interesting than this.
A: They are.
Q: If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?
A: I don’t know man. Maybe a weeping willow.
Q: Figures. That tree sucks. Are you crying yet?
