Sometimes, I genuinely enjoy having conversations with journalists; enjoying the few moments of intimacy with a Stranger is fascinating to me. But once in a while that backfires and you're suddenly reading something that has a bent on it that you didn't feel was in the least bit a part of the conversation that you thought you were having. Then you get overly protective and say very little and then you come out of the hole again.gillian anderson
