Nicole, from One Significant Moment At A Time is hosting a fun blogfest today!
The Bernard Pivot Blogfest!
Here are the deets:
This blogfest is designed to bring as many of us together, to get to know each other better. And I thought it'd be fun to use Bernard Pivot's famous questionnaire to do it.
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.
What a fun way to get to know each other better, right?
So here I go!
What is your favorite word?
Lately, I've been digging Apropos.

Gah. I dunno. How about Squeal? Yeah, that'll do

What is your favorite curse word?
Fuck. Though, as Seth Green pointed out on Inside the Actor's Studio (in reference to Tom Hank's interview on Inside the Actor's Studio) Horse-Shit is quite awesome.
What sound or noise do you love?
I do enjoy the sound of snow falling. You have to be reaaaaal quiet to hear it. Also the hooting owl in my backyard gets a smile out of me every time
What sound or noise do you hate?
When you scrape the ice off of windows with your fingernails. Gah, I just threw up in my mouth a bit
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Is this being realistic? Cuz if it isn't, then a super hero. Fact.
If it's serial, then a teacher.
What profession would you not like to do?
I really have no desire to be an actress.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
So you found us, eh?
