NEWS FLASH!! Lord Wellbourne, International Man Of Mystery and Bon Vivant, has graciously consented to a three-part interview! After nine months of self-imposed exile behind the back woods of Maine, Lord Wellbourne has condescended to give SVR's (somewhat vague responses) to FAQ's (frequently asked questions). Don't miss a single riveting installment!
FAQ--Where does the name 'Lord Wellbourne' come from?
SVR--It refers to an ancestral title that was never granted. An earldom was promised to the members of the Douglas clan of Scotland by Prince Charles Edward better known as 'Bonnie Prince Charlie' in exchange for their support of his claim to the throne of England. Had His Highness been successful this interview would be taking place in Edinburgh.
FAQ--After many years of residing in--and traveling throughout--many parts of the world, how do you find living, so far removed from it all, in Maine?
SVR--At present, rather cold, pleasantly quiet, and refreshingly clean.
FAQ--What brought you back to where it all began?
SVR--Retractable umbilical cord.
FAQ--You spent your early years being brought up and educated in France and England. Do you think this has given you any special advantages?
SVR--Certainly. I am always everyone's first pick for teammate when a Trivial Pursuit game appears. I am also popular whenever a romance novel author incorporates French into her dialogue.
FAQ--When you were a child what did you want to be when you grew up?
SVR--Yes, colourful. As a child all the people I found captivating were often referred to, somewhat disparagingly, as 'colourful'. I wanted to be one of them.
FAQ--According to popular opinion you've achieved that.
SVR--That's very gratifying to hear.
FAQ--Now, about your artistic and theatrical endeavours.............
SVR--Let's leave that for later, shall we? It's time for my nap...er...I mean, tea.
There you have it, Gentle Readers. The first installment of a historic three-part interview with the illusive Lord Wellbourne. In tomorrows' segment we will pursue that intriguing line of questioning. Until tomorrow, this is Iam Nosy signing off.
