1.What is your favorite word?
My favorite word is hope. In fact, my mother has more than once called me “The Energizer Bunny of Hope.” I seem to be persistent, if not always at the highest speed.
2. What is your least favorite word?
There are some words I have difficulty saying. Though it may not mean anything negative in many other languages, hearing the word cunt as used in American English at least, makes me feel… just not good. I have a problem with turd too; but, I can say “fuck” whenever necessary and without guilt.
3. What turns you on?
Well that would take the challenge out of it, wouldn’t it? I’m not saying!
4. What turns you off?
Sociopaths, people with untreated bi-polar disorder, the neglect and abuse of children -- oh, and mayonnaise.
5. What sound or noise do you love?
A cat’s purr is music to my ears.
6. What sound or noise do you hate?
I try not to use the word hate, but if I must since apparently I am being interviewed by James Lipton of The Actor’s Studio, I have a really hard time with loud noises. My noise sensitivity is due to nerve damage. I hate the sound of barking children in restaurants, and barking dogs ignored by their owners. I could go on…
7. What is your favorite curse word?
I think I let the cat out of the bag when I answered question #2.
8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Let’s see. I wanted to be an archaeologist, then a lawyer. I thought both might be too tedious and involve too much paperwork – so I earned my degree in journalism. I know. I know. If I were an attorney I could help people I know who have been sorely cheated or mistreated.
9. What profession would you not like to do?
Beef Testicle Festival organizer.
10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
“Don’t worry. All those people who spent their lives taking money from the faithful in my name, yelling at others to repent, judging my children when that is my job – and those who blew up people thinking that would get them here – the joke is on them.”
