My Answers to the Bernard Pivot Blogfest Questionnaire!

In case you didn't know, Nicole is hosting a blogfest in the spirt of "In the Actor's Studio" to celebrate 500 followers!  Learn more about the contest here!  My answers are below.  Enjoy :)

What is your favorite word?   Asshat.  I'm pretty sure it's not a real word, but it gives me the giggles.  Especially when someone has done something worthy of being called one.

What is your least favorite word?   Work.  Seriously.

What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?  I don't know about "turned on" per se, but it inspires me to be around positive people.  If you know me, you know I'm not the world's biggest optimist -- it's been a semi-rough life so I have a lot of things to be cautious of.  The more I am around positive, and truly caring people, the less negative I become.

What turns you off? People that are nasty just to amuse themselves.  Nobody's perfect, and we all have our catty comments from time to time...but I really feel sorry for those who have nothing better to do than to just sit around and say nasty and unnecessary things about other people.

What is your favorite curse word?   Fcuk!  Fcukity! Fcuk! Fcuk! Fcuk!  Sometimes there is just nothing else that makes sense!

What sound or noise do you love? I love hearing the keys in the front door.  It means my handsome husband is home!

What sound or noise do you hate?  Well, I'd have to say that this is a very close tie between the sound of my alarm and the sound of one of my cats hacking something up somewhere in the house.  Blech.

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?   I've always wanted to be a professional chef.  Now I want to be a writer.  Maybe I can be a professional chef that writes about being a professional chef?  Did I lose you there?
What profession would you not like to do?  The one I am doing now.  But seriously, I just don't like to work.  If I had my way, I'd be a homemaker.

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?  Welcome.  Brad Pitt's been waiting for you over there on cloud 39.


  1. omg I am CRACKING up!! Between your cat hacking up something and Brad Pitt waiting for you!!! HILARIOUS

  2. What fun! Loved reading your answers. So, you like the sound of hubby's key in the door? I love when mine gets home, but he knows now to warn me. When he's on his way, he calls. When I answer the phone, he begins with, "PICK UP!" 'Cause I need a good 20 minutes to make the house look like I didn't sit at my computer ALL day long. *blush*

    Thanks for playing along!!

  3. I've not heard your favorite word before, but it made me giggle just reading it.

  5. Your answer about you're favourite sound being the key in the door because it means your hubby's home was so cute! Poor Brad having to wait till the next life.

  11. LOL. Interesting blogfest. Good luck with the blog and the writing. I'm your newest follower.

  12. You have a cute personality and you had me at Brad Pitt.

    I'm following.

    Funny - because I thought I made it up! Go figure!

  14. Heather, your responses are about the funniest I've read. Glad I stopped by.

  15. I smash alarms with my muscle man strength at first BEEP.
    (please don't call me an asshat)

  16. Hi! Great name!
    I hadn't thought of the cat yakking sound. Now that I think about it, it's pretty bad. Worse is not knowing where they yakked and walking around trying to find it without stepping in it.
    Thanks for sharing your answers.

  17. OMG the cat! I was frcuking eating! lol Thank you for keeping me on my diet today!
    I love snarky but there is a fine line between snark and mean....I usually stumble across it at least once a day - and not have a clue. Always shocked at people who take life to be stone rather than salt -sure you can wear them down -but it takes longer. I am follower 33! I like that number.

    Your blog is light and cheery. Great to meet you!
