[one year as someone else] who?

The ever-sublime Bryan Appleyard is torn:

This woman is an inspiration to us all. She is living as Oprah for one year. I am torn between living as the sublime Richard Madeley or sinking into the dark heart of Elberry.
While the first lady wasn't actually shape-shifting into Oprah, still, the principle holds water.

Who would you be for a year? Gordo? Cherie Blair? One half of the McCanns? Mugabe with his opulent monster status? The aging Bill Gates?

Yourself [perhaps with a bit more cash under the belt]?

I'm truly happy with my life - though I'd happily accept more cash if you're offering!

I'm going to be myself for another year and you're all welcome to join me being me.

Often I wish I could be someone else just for one day, nevermind a whole year.

I'm a bit scared of nuns but I often wonder what it would be like to live like they do. To have such a chaste and devoted life - to have real faith in what they do, must be a wonderful thing.

I think I will stick with being me ;-)

After seeing Richard Madely in his silk pyjamas I am afraid you could never hope to compete with him.

I, too, will be myself - with cash!

Dragonstar - I'll pray that it is long so.

Richard - we shall.

Bunny - a nun, eh? Could do worse, girl.

Cherie - I would too.

Richard in silks? And just when did you see this in the flesh, so to speak, DD?

Welshcakes - how much cash?

Can I be 35 again with cash?
