Home Again, Home Again
How bout dem Marlins, eh?
Because I'm still in the process of washing dirty knickers and getting back to work from my days of leisure, I'm going to cop out on this entry and just give my answers to the Bernard Pivot Questionnaire. I somehow doubt that Mr. Lipton will soon be knocking down my door asking for Phone Slut input.
Doxy Wringer's answers to Bernard Pivot's Questionnaire from "Bouillon de Culture" (more familiar to most Americans as the "Inside the Actor's Studio" Questionnaire.
01. What is your favorite word?
Vesper. But "cornucopia" is a very close second. Definitions aside, I just like the way they sound.
02. What is your least favorite word?
Obligated. "Duty" as a runner up. Gilbert and Sullivan and I would not have gotten along.
03. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
Listening and Learning. Communication and the exchange of ideas in all its forms, but especially academic debate when it employs sagacious wit coupled with forbearance. The History & Discovery Channels give me seriously wet panties.
04. What turns you off?
Anything that is classified or presented in terms of: "have to," "got to," or "must." Also moral superiority.
05. What is your favorite curse word?
06. What sound or noise do you love?
The sounds of human sensuality that you just can't fake - like the shivering exhale after an orgasm or the whispered repetition of "oh god, oh god, oh god"; all those orgasmic moans and whimpers, male or female, playful or intense. They're powerful stuff.
07. What sound or noise do you hate?
That high-pitched yelping of an animal that has been hurt, or that small gasp right before a child is about to start screaming. Also the beeping of large vehicles that are backing up or the sounds of adults talking in Peanuts cartoons.
08. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Egyptology, archeology or archeological forensics.
09. What profession would you not like to do?
Anything even remotely involving the post office, the DMV, the humane society, the IRS, or retail.
10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
"The book with the answers to all your questions is in the room on the right. Everyone you've ever loved is in the room on the left. They said to tell you to take your time and they'd hold supper for you."
