An excuse to use the word "Archaeopteryx"
Nicole Ducleroir is hosting the Bernard Pivot Blogfest. Since she does such a great job of explaining it, I'll let her words do so here:
Anyone who's watched Inside the Actor's Studio will be familiar with the questionnaire. The show's host, James Lipton, asks it of every celebrity guest at the close of the interview. The questionnaire was originally created by Bernard Pivot, a French journalist, for the cultural series he hosted on French television from 1991-2001, called Bouillon de Culture.
What I love about the questionnaire is you can either answer the questions with all the truth in your heart, or you can approach them with creativity and cleverness -- finding answers or deliveries no one else has ever come up with. But which ever way you go, each of your answers will be revealing, telling us interesting things about you.
Here's my questionnaire!
1.What is your favorite word? Archaeopteryx
2.What is your least favorite word? Can't
3.What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? Thunder storms, fog, the ocean
4.What turns you off? Technology
5.What is your favorite curse word? Fewmets. It drives the dragons crazy and confounds the humans.
6.What sound or noise do you love? Rain
7.What sound or noise do you hate? People yelling at each other
8.What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Quantum Physics
9.What profession would you not like to do? What I’m doing now, answering phones
10.If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? “Well done, my good and faithful servant. Welcome. And you were right: Heaven really IS a giant bookstore/coffee shop on the beach!"
Now then, shuffle on over to Nicole's blog for the grand list of participants. Read their responses, get to know some new people in this great, big, grand blogsphere we call home. Tell 'em I sent you ;D
