AN INVITATION TO YOU DEAR READER

I was watching Inside the Actor's Studio this morning on Bravo (it was the episode with Angelina Jolie if anyone cares) and as fans of the show are aware, James Lipton comes to the end of his interview and he asks the infamous "questions". These questions are actually Les Questions 'boullion de culture' de Bernard Pivot and are posed by Lipton to everyone he interviews.

Now I bet you are wondering where is the "invitation" referenced above, well here it is. I love these questions. I think they are so much more adept at finding out about a person than asking someone's favorite color or whether they like coke or pepsi. I have listed them below, wtih my own personal answers. Those of you that know me "in real life" might recall that I sent out a similiar email a couple years back asking for your answers to these questions. I am asking here, again. Please answer the questions below and put them in the comments.

It also occurred to me that a majority of people who surf onto this page don't know me personally. I invite those of you from the blogosphere to answer them as well. I am a nosey person, I'd like to know more about the people that stop on by. Anonymous comments are allowed so feel free to bask in your anonymity if that suits your comfort level. Also, if you have your own blog you might even want to answer your questions over there and slip a link into the comments here. Whatever you fancy, I'm not picky. I'll just be tickeled pink if you participate.

Without further ado ...

1. What is your favorite word?
eclectic because I like the idea of drawing from various sources and not limiting yourself to one thing or another. A little of everything is best, like the buffet of life.

2. What is your least favorite word?
Actually there are three, used together; "That's our policy". It reeks of "I know it sucks for you but I don't give a damn I am just repeating what someone else told me to say without any original thought".

3. What turns you on?
Intelligence and on a more basic level the smell of Drakkar Noir cologne.

dishonesty and not being straight forward

10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
"You did OK, I'm proud of you."
