Bernard Pivot Blogfest
To celebrate passing the 500 follower milestone, Nicole Ducleroir from One Significant Moment At A Time is hosting the Bernard Pivot Blogfest today. Check out all of the entries at her site.
Okay, here's Bernard Pivot's "famous" questionnaire with my answers following each question:
What is your favorite word? I love words and can't necessarily say that any one word is a favorite so I'll pick one that I like: "CYNOSURE". I found this in the dictionary when I was in high school and liked it, but I don't know that I've ever actually used it in any context.
What is your least favorite word? "MAYBE"-- Maybe is so ambiguous and it's not enough of an answer.
What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? More than one thing, but especially good music (primarily classical) and all of God's Creation.
What turns you off? Anger and excessive profanity.
What is your favorite curse word? Did you notice the answer to my last question? And besides my mother and my kids (who are all adults) sometimes read this. But if I'm going to pick one then I'll say "CRAP". It's one of those all encompassing words that can be used in various contexts. My ex-mother-in-law used to hate it when I said "Crap". I guess I could have said worse things.
What sound or noise do you love? Babies laughing.
What sound or noise do you hate? A dentist's drill. Agggghhhh! Hearing it or even thinking about it makes me tense up.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? When I was going to college back in the early 1970s, I had the intent of becoming a teacher. I still would like to try teaching although I don't know if I'd like the way the state education system ties the hands of teachers.
What profession would you not like to do? I am not very fond of any job that requires repetitive actions day after day after day..... I like to have a variety of activities in my work schedule.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? "Well done my son, now grab a harp and go play in the band."
Now go back to Nicole's blog and check out the other participants.
Don't forget my special Friday post and special announcement!
