I was listless

Here are the ten questions (compiled by Bernard Pivot) that James Lipton asks every guest on Inside the Actors Studio, with my own responses.

1. What is your favorite word?

"shrubbery" (but only when said by Michael Palin) or maybe "porcupine", neither of which comes up in conversation nearly enough.

2. What is your least favorite word?

"gobbledygook." It actually makes me cringe. WYSIWYG is a close second. Wait, any acronym is a close second.

3. What turns you on?

Intelligence and creative thinking

4. What turns you off?

Intolerance, whining, and begging.

5. What is your favorite curse word?

“Horse shit." It says it all. It has ooomph.

6. What sound or noise do you love?

the sound of a grandfather clock ticking and the sound of a bowling alley

7. What sound or noise do you hate?

Someone blowing their nose, babies crying

8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

Baker, veterinarian, news or nature photographer, although I might like my own fishing show

9. What profession would you not like to attempt?

Working with mentally handicapped people.

10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

"Now THAT'S what I'm talking about!"

Feel free to add your own answers to the comment section.
