For me to say I wasn't a genius, I would just be lying to you and to myself.
If it was raining soup the Irish would go out with forks.
I know. I'm lazy. But I made myself a New Years resolution that I would write myself something really special. Which means I have 'til December right?
If you asked me for my New Year Resolution it would be to find out who I am.
I would want my legacy to be that I was a great son father and friend.
I decided in my life that I would do nothing that did not reflect positively on my father's life.
Then when I got in the military I used to host - even in high school - I hosted the talent shows and when I was in the military I would host all of our base Christmas parties and stuff.
I wouldn't recommend young kids see 'Speedway Junkie.' It's definitely an age-appropriate movie - dark and realistic and edgy. If young kids want to see me go see the Christmas movie.
So when I was 13 I basically left home and never returned and lived at home again. I would come home for a week at Christmas and two weeks in the summer only.
Yeah I started when I was 6 years old. My brother and sister would get all of these presents at Christmas time from the cast and crew of their show and I was jealous. So I decided that I had to become an actor.
'The war in Iraq - if Osama was a Christian - it's the Christmas present he never would have expected.
In the spring of 1994 I decided not to seek reelection to the Senate. I had made the decision 12 years earlier Christmas Day of 1982 just after I had been first elected to a full term that I would do the best I could for a limited time.
I had eight brothers and sisters. Every Christmas my younger brother Bobby would wake up extra early and open everybody's presents - everybody's - so by the time the rest of us got up all the gifts were shredded ribbons off torn open and thrown aside.
My Christmas wish would be to have an entire week off. To spend it with my family and just curl up and watch Christmas movies when it's snowing outside.
My mother would give my brothers and me a pile of catalogues and let us pick what we wanted for Christmas.
May I share with you my earliest memory of a political row? It was with my mother about the Queen - classic Freudian stuff shrinks would say. I was eight and refusing to watch the Queen's Christmas Day broadcast.
From a commercial point of view if Christmas did not exist it would be necessary to invent it.
What I had to prove was that I had a dedication and a desire and a passion to do the work and everything else would fall in place because I have a vision that I want to portray and it did and I do it. I don't sell anything.
