It can take hard work to be lazy
|Liza, 34, is an author. She has given birth to 4 novels and 3 children and is currently single.|
Would you describe yourself as lazy or hardworking?
LIZA: I was brought up to be a hardworking person. And so I am.
But - that does not work when I'm writing. I have got to have a lazy style to get the writing to flow. And to be that lazy is really a hard work for me.
That's an early bird by force
|Cecilia is hard asleep every morning|
when her cuckoo clock alarms
Are you a night owl or an early bird?
CECILIA: I've got five alarm clocks running with five minutes delay. The first one goes off at 6 o’clock in the morning.
The last one goes of when I am sitting in my car driving to job, just to make sure I don’t fall asleep on the road.
No, I’m not an early bird by habit but by force.
Fiddling while Rome burns
|Claudia is playing the lyre for Nero|
Firstly, there was no such instrument as the fiddle (violin) in first century Rome. If Nero played anything during the Rome fire, it was probably the lyre.
Secondly, Nero problably didn't play by himself. He had beautiful lady slaves that played for him.
Who can be charmed by a farting machine
|Benny is trying to please his teacher|
Do you like your teacher?
BENNY: Yes, I like my teacher, but she does not like me!
I've tried the apple trick, but she said that was too cheap.
Maybe I went too far that time when I placed a farting machine under her chair. Everyone in the class thought it was funny, but not the teacher.
She's probably no sense of humor.

Hitting golf balls is not our game
|Betina and Caroline|
What is the first thing you do in the morning when you wake up?
BETINA: I'm an early bird and I live very close to a golf course, in fact our house is ON the golf course, so naturally the first thing I do every morning is go and play golf.
I mostly play with my neighbour and friend Caroline.
The other day, on the 15th hole, we suddenly found a golf ball on the fairway. The first golf ball we saw that morning. We thought about playing it, but finally decided not to. Hitting golf balls is not our game.
Golf certainly is about being social.

How do you interpret that?
Nowadays I always ask someone else to pick up my golf ball.
