Sometimes I discover great blogs and great ideas a day late. This time, I hit it on the exact day. One Significant Moment At A Time is having a blogfest today. While I might be late to join the fest, I can still participate in the fun. The following questionnaire has been used, frequently, on the program, The Actor's Studio, but it was originally developed by French journalist, Bernard Pivot for his television series.
Who knows....maybe you'll learn something new about me. Or yourself when you think about the questions.
What is your favorite word?
Friendship is one of my favorites. Having friends and being a friend is part of my essence.
What is your least favorite word?
Intolerence. I find it upsetting when people are intolerant of the differences between us.
What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
Music can really activate the creative side in me as well as the spiritual. Usually it's quiet, peaceful music but I've been known to find rock n' roll and Motown songs to be a spiritual experience!
What turns you off?
Bullying. It's. Just. Not. Acceptable. I dealt with it personally as a child and as a teacher, I was compelled to help students who suffered through it.
What is your favorite curse word?
I wouldn't say I have 'a favorite', but but I use sh*t the most frequently. (I know... bad girl.)
What sound or noise do you love?
The sound of a young child laughing. Just writing about it makes me smile. Who could be mad when a toddler giggles?! (Okay, so now you know I'm a teddy bear.)
What sound or noise do you hate?
Screechy sounds on a chalkboard *shiver*. Oh, and when I was younger, the sound of a teakettle whistling endlessly drove me crazy. Now? Not so much.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Well, I've been a teacher for many years, I was a pharmaceutical sales rep, now I'm a writer. Hmmmmm.... I once fantasized about being a professional dancer. 'Course that was 30+ years ago and *%#^ pounds ago!
What profession would you not like to do?
Although I greatly respect these professions, I could never be a doctor, nurse, police officer, firefighter, coroner, or mortician. Blood, guts, and dead people creep me out.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
Well, I'd just be glad to talk with my Dad again. I miss him a bunch. However, if the Big Guy or Girl were to meet me and make a statement, I'd like to hear that I lived a purposeful life and helped others. I think that's a good way to close out the book.
Anyone care to share a few of your responses to these Qs?
