In the spirit of continuing my “getting to know you” theme from last week, I thought I’d borrow this questionnaire from my good buddy James Lipton (love him!) at Inside the Actors Studio and try to get a fun little meme started at the same time. So, I’ll answer the questions and then tag three of my blogging buddies, who will then tag three more, and well…you see how it goes.
What is your favorite word? Well…I kinda like the word dude. But other words that are pleasing to the ears are lilting, alliteration, Lila, honeyI’vedonethedishes, and anything said in French.
What is your least favorite word? Well, when coming from someone else, f*ck. It grates on my ears. Though there’s this one friend I have who curses like a drunken sailor and it is SO FUNNY.
What turns you on (creatively, spiritually or emotionally)? This will sound lame, but good ideas and open minds.
What turns you off (creatively, spiritually or emotionally)? The opposite of what turns me on. Duh. But seriously, it’s not just closed minded people that turn me off. It’s people who, every time I say something, rebut what I say with why it won’t work, why I’m wrong, etc. Like the time I said to someone, I guess ignorance is bliss. And he said, No, ignorance isn’t bliss, because one time I was walking along, not paying attention and ran into a pole. Um, yeah, I was talking about ignorance, not blindness. Now THAT is frustrating. I was just trying to meet on a common ground and the person totally missed my point. ARG!
What sound or noise do you love? The sound of rain, that little chirping noise that hummingbirds make, and the tick of a windup clock or watch.
What sound or noise do you hate? Nails being filed. It just gives me shivers every time I do it to myself or even have someone do it to me.
What is your favorite curse word? I say “freaking A” a lot. And gosh dangit. I used to say fudgcicles when I was younger. Crap. Criminey (like crime but with the iney on the end). I really try not to curse much, though I do allow it to come out sometimes in my blogging.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Well, I think being a photographer would be fun. Or a book tour cooridnator. 😉
What profession would you not like to do? Sniffing people’s armpits to see if a deoderant just invented will work.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? Congratulations! The clouds are actually cotton candy and you get to eat them all.
Thanks for tagging me Rebecca. MWAH! I love you.
