. . . he (Tom) is much more interested in answering imaginative and well thought-out questions showing that people read the things he's said in interviews and in his books, etc. . . .

Best,

I am very thankful to Mr. Baker for taking the time to answer my question, as well as the others, posed to him so far this month.

I have been trying to read more on this site in terms of information (my library does not have copies of his books), so I was wondering with what Dirk said above in terms of "imaginative and well thought-out questions," if there is anything in particular about which Mr. Baker would like to be asked.

Any suggestions there? Thanks!

Donnarose, if any of us knew what sort of questions Tom might like to be asked, chances are we would have asked them.

I, like Tracy, on the other hand, am sitting back to let newcomers ask questions, as I have now had two questions answered in two months and to do not wish to hog centre stage.

I am so grateful to Tom for the time that he gives us all here. It is so personal and welcoming here, and all because he cares about his fans. Not many celebrities can match that, I doubt.

So take the bull by the horns, and ask away. He'll either answer or he won't, but what have you to lose? ;)
I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by. Douglas Adams.

dear bid_sue -

are we just the most considerate of fans? 8-)

still, i agree, we need to let the newbies among us have first dibbs. :P

ideas for questions, donnarose? gee i have hundreds of them! could keep Our Mr TOM busy for weeks. but if might be permitted to throw out a few for you:

1) (question used for september)

2) Looking back on it, did you ever believe that you would be alive when the Berlin Wall came down?

3) We know you love the CRAFT of your profession, but how you feel about the BUSINESS end of acting?

4) We know you are fond of the written word, and have read all the books that are in your own personal library, but have you ever actually COUNTED them?

5) Why is _______________ your favourite book of the Bible?

6) If you could visit just one art museum, in the entire world, which one would it be?

7) And just WHERE in that museum would you spend most of your time while there?

8) Have you ever studied particle physics? (Tis' a great read for a rainy afternoon, when you can't garden!)

9) How do you feel about **** on televison? And you can't answer with: "As long as they are careful to not fall off!"

good grief! when i started this, i was just going to rattle off half a dozen for you, but all at once, it turned into a MONSTER ... taking on a life of its own! see what i mean? hard to stop myself when i get engaged.

anyWHO, even if none of my suggestions are not your particular 'cuppa tea' maybe they will at least trigger your own particular clever/creative gene to kick in. ;)

and please feel free to use/rework/rewrite/paraphrase any of the above.

now i will go away, and be good.

love,
pattie anne :geek:

I think with your list, we might keep Mr. Baker busy for a bit. ;)

Thanks!

I agree with "our Dirk". The mini-essay on how Lucifer got to be the Devil is a terrific piece of work: tongue-in-cheek as only Tom can do it and hilarious to boot. Another treat for your fans, Tom. Thanks.
