The classic Questionarre thread!

We haven't done of these in a while, so I'd thought I'd start one. It's the classic questionnaire but Bernard Pivot, made famous by Inside The Actor's Studio.


1. What is your favorite word?
2. What is your least favorite word?
3. What turns you on?
4. What turns you off?
5. What is your favorite curse word?
6. What sound or noise do you love?
7. What sound or noise do you hate?
8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
9. What profession would not like to do?
10. If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?




And thus, my answers:



1. What is your favorite word?
"Well", as in use at the start of a sentence. i use it all too much. I blame the 10th Doctor.
2. What is your least favorite word? "Can't". Again, cliche, but I like to find ways to make things work.
3. What turns you on? Intelligence. A smile. Beautiful eyes.
4. What turns you off? Arrogance. Heaps of makeup. Disrespect.
5. What is your favorite curse word? Motherfucker.
6. What sound or noise do you love? The sort of tweeting noise one our cats makes every time I rub her belly. It's kinda weird, but fantastic.
7. What sound or noise do you hate? The rowdy laughing and macho bullshitting of a group of young men. Reminds me too much of my dark past.
8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Writer. I love telling stories.
9. What profession would not like to do? Fast food worker.
10. If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates? "It's cool bro, I let in everyone who's been done more good than they have bad."


EDITED because my word sucked. It's wasn't even a word, it was like a description.

2. What is your least favorite word?

3. What turns you on?

7. What sound or noise do you hate?
Cats having sex.
8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Archeologist.
9. What profession would not like to do?
