10 QUESTIONS ABOUT SIMON

ESQ: What is Simon’s most treasured childhood possession?

ESQ: What is the worst haircut Simon has ever had?

NF: Simon’s hair remains oddly the same. I don’t think he’s had a weird or odd haircut in 17 years of knowing him. Oh… I think he, the first few years he went through a phase of dying it white-blond. That’s probably the most different.

SP: My Rick quiff, probably, back when he met me.

ESQ: What would Simon most hope to find in an airport vending machine?

NF: Green tea.

SP: At the moment, a good quality still water. Diet Coke. It depends what phase of my life I’m in.

Nick scores ½ point for general healthiness theme

ESQ: What is the most embarrassing thing Simon has ever done in public?

NF: He’s done a few. At our mate Smiley’s wedding, he jumped onto a big swing and it snapped, and he fell to the floor and everyone laughed at him.

SP: Nick and I once walked up and down the street with our trousers round our ankles. It was on a night when I hadn’t been drinking for a while and we went out in Camden. This was way, way, back — I tend to try and keep a lid on behaviour in public, but I remember walking through Kentish Town with Nick, stripped from the waist down. I don’t know who saw.

ESQ: What phenomenon in modern life is most likely to wind Simon up?

NF: I’d say something like celebrity, generally. The cult of shit celebrities – not people who work for a living.

SP: Celebrity journalism.

ESQ: If Simon were reincarnated as an animal, what would it be?

NF: A Siamese cat. He’s had a Siamese cat before and he’s quite feline in his ways, but then they can also scratch…

SP: A dog. Because I think I’m quite dog-like, quite affectionate and devoted. I have a lot of love to give and it’s fairly unconditional. But I’m also quite protective and fierce — if you get on the wrong side of me I will bite you.

Nick scores ½ a point for wrong animal but right characteristics

ESQ: What is Simon’s favourite joke?

NF: I don’t know.

SP: My favourite is the one about a man who goes into a pet shop and says, “Can I buy a wasp?” The guys says, “We don’t sell wasps.” He says, “You’re a liar. I saw one in the window.”
