Depends on the show and the character. For this one, it will probably involve mouth wash - and listening to a compilation of club music called 'Terry's Techno Dance Mix'.

I dare say this question is the hardest one on the list. I just looked through the 199 Beatles songs in my Itunes. I'm gonna say "Blackbird".

Favorite Beatles song?
"Here Comes the Sun", it makes me think of my son, and I can get a perfect score with it on the drums of Beatles rock band (what,WHAT!)

If you were to write a "Dear Dan" letter for advice, what would you ask the real Dan Savage?
Dear Dan, I don't have a lot of free time so when I do have it I usually have a little fun on the Internet. My issue is that it has become so habitual for me to have cyber fantasies with pictures of celebs in my spare time, that I find myself doing it even when I don't really want to, I guess out of obligation to the moment. My thinking is "well, I may not get another chance to be alone for a while so I guess I have to do this." I have a feeling, that feeling myself, has become a chore. What do I do?
