My friend, Boston Erin, posted the Pivot questions from Inside the Actors Studio on her blog. These are the questions that host James Lipton asks each guest at the end of the show.
Because there's a creative synnergy between acting and writing, and because once posted these questions become a meme, I thought it was time to give them a second look.
1 What is your favorite word? Serendipity
2 What is your least favorite word? Boogers (My husband taugh it to my son. *sigh*)
3 What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? The feeling of a plan coming together. Family. Poetry. Blogging. Blogging about poetry.
4 What turns you off? Bad drivers
5 What is your favorite curse word? The "C" word. Never knew what it meant until my mid-20s, so it doesn't mean that much to me. But I love other people's reaction to it, especially in the car to bad drivers. Also, Mother F*ck*r is close second.
6 What sound or noise do you love? My kids' laughter
7 What sound or noise do you hate? Dental drills
8 What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Torch singer
9 What profession would you not like to do? From the movie Say Anything -- "I don't want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don't want to sell anything bought or processed ... or buy anything sold or processed ... or process anything sold, bought, or processed ... or repair anything sold, bought or processed."
10 If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? What took you so long?
Feel to post your answers.
