Fun Facts about John

If you had a time machine, what era would you visit? Why?

I would love to be the age I am now in the 1990s, so I could be Joey and Chandler’s third roommate on Friends. I’d like to see what it’s like to live in the modern world without the Internet, smart phones and social media.

What is your favorite place in the world?

My favorite place in the whole world is London, England. I studied in London for two semesters in college and desperately miss the museums, pubs and afternoon tea. (I’m the king of making British-style currant scones.)

If you could have one superpower, what would it be? Why?

I would like to have the power to freeze time, like Piper Halliwell on Charmed. There are simply not enough hours in a day for me to get everything I want done.

What is your favorite book of all time?

Harry Potter, always.

What is one of your favorite quotes?

“That is the key to navigating this life—don’t take it too seriously. That’s when the party begins.” —RuPaul Charles
