Nicole at One Significant Moment at a Time recently surpassed the 500 followers milestone and is celebrating with a blogfest designed to bring us together, to get to know each other better. She is accomplishing this by using Bernard Pivot's famous questionnaire and I’m happy to take part in it.
Anyone who's watched Inside the Actor's Studio will be familiar with the questionnaire. The show's host, James Lipton, asks it of every celebrity guest at the close of the interview. The questionnaire was originally created by Bernard Pivot, a French journalist, for the cultural series he hosted on French television from 1991-2001, called Bouillon de Culture. My answers are listed below, but make sure you drop by Nicole’s blog (click on the link above) to see the list of everyone else whose participated.
What is your favorite word? Tolerance
What is your least favorite word? Ignorance
What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? Music is my one constant when it comes to getting me revved up, mellowed out, or inspired. Whenever I need a change in direction, music shows me the way.
What turns you off? Politics…with a passion!
What is your favorite curse word? It’s actually a phrase. Shit the Bed!
What sound or noise do you love? Unrestrained laughter.
What sound or noise do you hate? A crying child.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? I’m going to go against the grain here and not say being a full-time writer (too obvious). So, how about Ski Instructor.
What profession would you not like to do? IRS Tax Auditor.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? Hammons, party of one…right this way. :)
