BPB Blogfest...

  Nicole over at One Significant Moment at a Time is hosting a blogfest today based on the Bernard Pivot questionnaire.  This is the same questionnaire that is used in the reality show 'Inside the Actor's Studio'.
   Laura Eno wrote about this on her blog and it sounded like fun so I joined as well.  Make sure you check out all the entries.

Okay, here's Bernard Pivot's famous questionnaire and my answers:

  1. What is your favorite word?
         Chocolate...I start smiling and feel euphoric just hearing the word.

  1. What is your least favorite word?
         No... It is the first word I remember hearing and the one I have heard 
         the most my entire life.  Nothing gets my hackled up faster than telling
         me no I can't do something. It is a guarantee that I will do everything I        can to do it.

  1. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
          A beautiful sunset or landscape. It feels my spirit and heart with a           calmness, and quites the voices in my head. If only for a little while.

  1. What turns you off?
          Rap music, no just kidding....maybe.

  1. What is your favorite curse word?
        F--k, (this is a PG blog) It brings the most interesting images and                                memories to mind.

  1. What sound or noise do you love?
          The ding of the timer that tells me the chocolate brownies are done.

  1. What sound or noise do you hate?
         The sound of a drill. It sets my teeth on edge just thinking of it.

  1. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
         Chief... oh wait, I already do that at home. Actor... uh got that one  
         covered too. Author...oops, I am a blogger. Okay just pay me for 
         the above and I would be happy.

  1. What profession would you not like to do?
          Animal trainer, I have already spent too many years training wild
          beasts... I mean teenagers.

  1. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
           Welcome to Heaven, where everyone is your friend, the internet is 
           always up, the chocolate and coffee are unlimited and free, and 
           there is no such thing as calories.

Ah evil woman. I think I'll just stay here all day looking at the chocolate and strawbs with no calories! Can I lick the screen?


Theres just life said...

Denise of course you can, but I refuse to take the blame for the keyboard drool. I just hope it's waterproof.

Arlee Bird said...

Most rap music is a pretty big turn off to me and I too had the dentist's drill sound. Now for some fresh chocolate brownies--Mmmm!
