The Bernard Pivot Blogfest

So, today I'm taking part in the blogfest hosted by Nicole Dudleroir by answering the ten questions in the following questionnaire. 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.

Here is the questionnaire and my answers:

  1. What is your favorite word? Splendiferous.
  2. What is your least favorite word? Doh.
  3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? Art or nature.
  4. What turns you off? Jeans that reveal anatomy I certainly didn't ask to see.
  5. What is your favorite curse word? I rarely curse; but, when I do... yeah, I use the ubiquitous "F" word.
  6. What sound or noise do you love? Violin music.
  7. What sound or noise do you hate? Jackhammers.
  8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Ah, painting!
  9. What profession would you not like to do? You know that little toll booth where a person sits all day, collecting and making change for the cars that go by? Sheesh!
  10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? Yes, pets are allowed.
There you have it, my ten answers. Meanwhile, visit and enjoy Nicole's blog. Just click on her name above.

Love your answers! I remember being slightly miffed when "doh" became a documented word in Websters dictionary. I definitely never use it. LOL

Answer #10 was priceless!

Thanks so much for playing along!

...The self-same survey with which James Lipton concluded his interviews on "Inside the Actor's Studio." Well done!

Oh, these answers are awesome! I want my pets with me in heaven also :D I also don't like seeing a slot machine above a pair of jeans when someone bends over. Ick.

Your answers are great! The highway toll collectors.... no thank you!

BTW, I almost never get to use syzygy in conversation, or even in Scrabble. Pity. 8-)
