I got this idea from www.sheilaomalley.com, wherein she answers the following questions usually asked of thespians who visit James Lipton on Inside The Actor's Studio. Since Blogger is acting up, I'm posting this fast while it still works, and giving you something to do until I can get my Tom DeLay rant on the site. I also just think the whole concept of James Lipton is hilarious; the gravity with which he interviews someone like Cameron Diaz about her "influences" and her "craft." It is truly a televised demonstration of a celebrity circle-jerk. So--in my brief absence, have your own:
My Favorite Word: Bisous (French for "kisses")
My Least Favorite Word: Nostril
Noise I love: Waves
Noise I hate: Alarm clock at 5am
What turns me on (spiritually, creatively): Singing Frank Sinatra at top volume while driving, a good movie like Amadeus, reading a good book like The Power of One or The Killer Angels, hearing my daughter belly-laugh
What turns me off: Dishonesty, dishonesty masquerading as kindness, dishonesty borne of insecurity; anything and anyone that thinks it best to separate me from the truth, however unpleasant it may be
Profession I would like to attempt: Televangelist
Profession I would hate: DMV clerk
My favorite curse-word: Fargin. You know, from "Johnny Dangerously"? Not the actual F word, but "fargin" as in "fargin bastitches" from that movie.
If heaven exists, what would I like to hear God say when I arrive: "Welcome to calorie-free living, my child. Can I offer you a cocktail, some bacon-wrapped scallops, all the french fries you can eat, and a chocolate donut chaser?"
What are YOUR answers?
