***My newest giveaway is of “First Daughter“ ***
Inside the Writer’s Studio is a show where host James Lipton interviews all sorts of people and asks them a series of questions. I confess to not have seen so much of his show, as to have seen Will Ferrell do an impression of him on Saturday Night Live. In either case, the questions are pretty interesting- and give the audience a closer look at whoever is answering.
What is your favorite word?
Lol In high school it was krod- aka dork backwards…. but you could say it and nobody would know what you meant, except for a bunch of my classmates. I’m not sure I have a favorite one now…. I like the words: unique, pure, violet, pudding, sky …. I have no idea why- there’s really no rhyme or reason. I just like certain words!
What is your least favorite word?
Ugh- I don’t like armpit, vomit, and though this has been mentioned many times- as Meghan puts it “those words designed to degrade and demean the lady bits”……
What turns you on (creatively, spiritually or emotionally)?
Humor, laughter, intelligence, kindness… books!
What turns you off (creatively, spiritually or emotionally)?
Inconsiderateness- this is a huge pet peeve! Lateness, rudeness, grey skies, violence, yelling,…..
What sound or noise do you love?
The piano, purring, laughter, the flipping of pages, choir music, rain (which again I’m stealing from other posts), bells…..
What sound or noise do you hate?
Many, many, many cell phone rings, hearing the entire conversation of somebody with those walky-talky cell phones, nails on a chalkboard, cars honking, dogs barking, crying children in a movie theater….
What’s your favorite curse word?
It’s either bitch or whore. I know that sounds bad. For some reason me and my sister call each other these things all the time- totally don’t mean it. In a way it’s a good thing because if I’m called one of them, it doesn’t really mean anything to me since we say it all the time. But then again I have to remember that I can’t call other people bitches or whores, because to them it’s not appropriate and they won’t just brush it off.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
I’d love to be an editor. For some reason I really enjoy proofreading my classmates’ papers. I just like knowing that I’m making something better. Or I’d like to be a tutor- maybe for SATs, or for children who have a hard time learning. I babysit a girl who has down syndrome, and I LOVE when something finally clicks for her. It makes all the hard work and effort worth it.
What profession would you not like to do?
I worked in a law office for a couple years. Would not like to do that again! Hmm what else…. I wouldn’t want to be a fisherman or trash collector….
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
You did your best- and it was good enough 🙂 Also your little kitten Zeus is waiting for you.
Okay- must tag three people
