10 Questions (DP)
by michelle w. on November 12, 2013
On the interview show Inside the Actors’ Studio, host James Lipton asks each of his guests the same ten questions. What are your responses? (The questions are listed after the jump).
What is your favorite word?
Effervescent.. Just the sound of it makes me smile. The meaning makes me think of loved ones, especially my niece Lauren who carries this wonderful attribute with her huge smile, bubbling enthusiasm and contagious laugh.
What is your least favourite word?
There is one particular word that is not one to print that is the ugliest word I know.. However, besides that I would say the word “despair” for all that it means and all that it brings to those who are suffering from it.
What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
I am continually inspired by God through those around me that carry a flame or passion for what they do. That drive.. That determination.. That fire in their eyes. As for creatively, often I am driven by my own NEED to write. I feel compelled rather than obliged to write. Perhaps it is my self-therapy, or perhaps there is just something that one person needs to hear some day, but either way, if I ignore the feeling, I am left feeling wrestles and as if I have wronged myself during my day.
What turns you off?
Lack of etiquette, crassness, horror themes, selfishness, a “me, me, me” person.
What is your favourite curse word?
Haha This question makes me laugh! I would have to say the best curse word is actually a phrase from the Greek language. Instead of telling someone to “f-off” they tell the victim of their wrath to “go poo!” in cruder verbiage! I think it is both hilarious and very effective when the term is used!
What sound or noise do you love?
As corny as it sounds, even to me, the truth is that I delight in hearing small children laughing, even to this day, I laugh or at least have a big smile when I hear my 15-year-old daughter laughing, the sound fills the room with joy. I love to hear a baby sleeping, I love the sound of my sweet Antonio snoring beside me, as my world is safe and secure beside him. Birds in the springtime after a long, cold winter. Raindrops on a fall morning, when you get to sleep in a bit. The sound of your feet crunching against new-fallen snow. The majesty of the ocean roaring as you walk along the beach. My children calling my name. The phone ringer that I have for my children as now that they are older, I love when they call me “just because”.
What sound or noise do you hate?
Babies crying when they are sick.. DJs in the morning.. I just don’t want to hear them prattle on in nonsensical rambling. Tires screeching.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
I would go back to school to become a doctor. I love when I just know what to do to make someone well.
What profession would you not like to do?
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
“Well done, good and faithful servant”. Even writing these words brings tears to my eyes.
