The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

At least there's only ten

The ten questions asked by James Lipton on Inside the Actors Studio, originally compiled by Bernard Pivot, have now made it as far as A Small Victory, and, well, if Michele can do these, so can I.

  1. What is your favorite word?

  2. What is your least favorite word?

  3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
    The willingness to break beyond the superficial.

  4. What turns you off?
    Preconceived notions.

  5. What is your favorite curse word?
    Apart from the F-bomb, I tend to fall back on the Modified Savior (as in, say, "Jesus H. Tapdancing Christ!")

  6. What sound or noise do you love?
    First rustle of birds an hour before sunrise.

  7. What sound or noise do you hate?
    Squealing brakes.

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

  9. What profession would you not like to do?
    Anything that requires me to deal with self-proclaimed "sportsmen" and that doesn't involve firearms.

  10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
    "I had a lot fewer doubts than you did, but you know that now."

Pass it on, as they say.

the Modified Savior

Aw, Jesus on a JetSki!

7. Squeaking chalkboard. Just thinking about it makes me cringe.

So, you would not like to do anything that doesn't involve firearms? Charles, you suprise me daily! ; )

Well, it's not a case of being a gun nut, particularly (although I did just renew my NRA membership); it's a reflection of my experience that of all the people who represent themselves as "sportsmen," the hunters and the target-shooters and such seem to have the firmest grasp on reality — possibly because there's a segment of society which really can't stand them, forcing them to learn how to defend themselves in a manner that doesn't involve ammo.
