Nicole Ducleroir at “One Significant Moment At A Time” is hosting a blogfest based on a list of questions developed by French journalist Bernard Pivot for a series he hosted on French television in the nineties.
Now I’m not saying this is one hundred percent, but these look an awful lot like the questions that Hugh Hefner asks of the girls who grace the center of his magazine. Which I only buy for the articles.
Am I wrong? “Turn ons, turn offs.” The are right outta the Hef book! I got suspicious when number eleven asked for my measurements.
Oh I’m kidding! It’s a good idea and easy to participate, so here goes…take that, Bernie P!
1. What is your favorite word?
Quizzes give it to me….
2. What is your least favorite word?
I know, that's two.
There’s no sadder time on earth…and right now it’s last call somewhere…
3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
Meeting new people….and pissing them off
4. What turns you off?
People who seem obsessed with impressing me with something of theirs that I could care less about (job, car, etc), and I could care less about most things that are possessions.
I’m serious about this one-why do people care what I think?
I don’t even care what I think!
5. What is your favorite curse word?
I've spent the last twenty five years trying to curb my use of them, but for extreme effect, there's nothing like the F BOMB!!
I used to not be able to finish a sentence without it.
Now most people think I never swear.
6. What sound or noise do you love?
The sound of a can of Diet Coke opening…
7. What sound or noise do you hate?
Fingernails across a blackboard
8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
To own a small record label
9. What profession would you not like to do?
Anything involving having to sound nice on the phone
10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
"You done good, son"
Or even, “You’re in”
Pretty much anything but “You gotta leave” or “You may want to ditch the jacket”
So there you have it.
My answers. The God's honest truth. Or the sordid and seamy truth.
Over the next few days, I'll make the rounds to see your answers.
And if I may, a shameless plug for my own forthcoming blog fest, the Super 8 Debut Albums Blog Hop.
Sign up now, and post your list on February 28!
