Interview questions for Sage

In a comment to my interview answers last week, my interviewer Sage volunteered to let me interview him in return. It turns out that Sage has been interviewed before, a few months ago, which makes the task slightly harder because I obviously need to cover different areas.

One question I'll have to ask will be his views on monogamy for gay couples. I won't be in character as Gay Banker if I don't ask something like that! Are there any clues in his blog relating to this subject?

Well he can be a bit of a flirt, and sometimes other guys he notices get mentioned in his blog e.g. French towel boy, hunky groundskeeper. Sometimes he seems to miss being single too, although he's never cheated on a boyfriend (presumably his husband is included in his definition of boyfriend). But Sage and his husband are both in their mid-30's now. According to Joe.My.God somewhere in the mid-30's vehement defense of monogamous relationships pretty much evaporates.

So Sage, these are the questions I've come up with:

  1. You have around 50 decks of Tarot cards. How much notice do you take of Tarot or astrological predictions?

  2. It's impressive that you can work full-time as well as study for an MBA. Is there anything you hope to get out of the MBA degree, apart from career advancement as a university administrator?

  3. You're a bit of a bookworm and a sci-fi addict too. But what's your favourite book written more than 100 years ago?

  4. Having achieved ten years with your husband Boobah, what are your views on monogamy in gay relationships?

  5. Lastly, if you had to be a woman, who would you want to be (and why)?

Want to play? The Official Interview Games Rules:

Wow! Those are some pretty damn good questions! As the original interviewer of Sage (and interviewee), I'll put my hat in the ring as well - I'll be back with some questions for you! :-)

Sage said...

Great questions! I'll let you know when I post my responses. Happy New Year!

Reluctant Nomad said...

Interview me! :-)

Gay banker said...

OK eric and reluctant nomad, I'll prepare questions for both of u! But it might take a week or so now I'm back at work full time. Guess I'll do eric first 'cos his comment is first!

PJ said...

there's nothing i'd like more than a thorough interrogation from a guy in a suit (maybe), so question away!

Gay banker said...

OK pj. I've done questions for Eric now and reluctant nomad is next. After that I'll do some for you, even though I'm not in your blogroll! I reckon I can do one a week so it might take a couple of weeks from here.

Warm regards, GB xxx
