Have you ever seen Inside the Actor’s Studio? James Lipton always asks ten questions of each guest at the end of each show. I’d be curious to hear your answers. Below are the questions and my own answers.

1. What is your favorite word? Yes

2. What is your least favorite word? No, or Shut up (two words, I know, but one concept)

3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? Brainstorming/creating with a small group of people

4. What turns you off? People who refuse to see past the nose on their face, or worse, people who stonewall things because of their own selfish wants

5. What is your favorite curse word? Bastard (don’t know why–nothing to do with the literal meaning. I guess it just allows me to curse without using a really foul word)

6. What sound or noise do you love? The wind blowing through the trees in the fall.

7. What sound or noise do you hate? The sound of my kids crying when they’re hurt (not just upset but really hurt), poor guys.

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

9. What profession would you not like to do? A sewer worker

10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? “It’s great to see you here–wasn’t that a great ride?”
