73 Questions

I just recorded the Taylor Swift episode of Ten Words and I ended with the story of how Joe Sabia created the brilliant series 73 Questions for Vogue. I thought it fitting and proper therefore that I should attempt to answer those 73 questions myself, so for my own amusement (and possibly yours) here they are:
