I noticed this little meme floating around not too long ago. My husband and I were fans of Inside the Actors Studio for several years, and our favorite part was when the host, James Lipton, would pose the following questions to his guests. He borrowed the idea from Bernard Pivot, a French journalist and interviewer.
I enjoy it when fellow blogger Florinda sometimes shares with us her husband's responses to questions and memes she takes part in. I decided to follow her lead with this one. Anjin's responses are in italics.
What is your favorite word?
Me: Sorrow (I know it is a sad word, but I like it more for the softness in the way it sounds than the meaning itself.)
What is your least favorite word?
What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
Me: Nature, kindness, gentleness mixed with strength, thoughtfulness, good deeds, and humor/laughter.
Anjin: Seeing what other people have created.
What turns you off creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
Me: Crowds, filth, loudness, willful ignorance, arrogance, prejudice, rudeness, closemindedness, disrespect, thoughtlessness, and cruelty.
What sound or noise do you love?
Me: A F-16 doing a fly by, birds chirping in the morning, my dog's chain clinking as he wanders around the yard or house, my cat's meow, my husband's laughter, and rain falling (Not necessarily in that order.)
Anjin: 1) My wife's breathing in her sleep, 2) the level up sound effect in World of Warcraft
What sound or noise do you hate?
Me: Yelling and the blaring horn at the railroad crossing (I like the sound of the actual train whistle and horn--just not that contraption they put up outside the railroad crossing that is horrendously loud and obnoxious.)
Anjin: Squealing tires
What is your favorite curse word?
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Me: A helicopter pilot
What profession would you not like to do?
Me: President of the United States
Anjin: Glass eater
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
Me: "Oh good! We have an opening for you in the choir!"
Anjin: "Aren't you glad you were wrong?"
As an aside, Anjin posted a list of his top five books today, so while I may not be talking about books, at least he is. Take a look!
