Not a Meme

I'm not a huge fan of memes, but I'm too lazy to think up content with my own brain. So as a compromise, I'm going to pretend I'm appearing on Inside the Actors Studio.

This questionnaire was, of course, developed by Bernard Pivot, or as Will Ferrell used to say when he was impersonating James Lipton, "Behkhhnaaahkhhd Pizhulevoofroto'zwhee-eu."

What is your favorite word? Totally. I use it all the time. I OVERuse it. It is the best word ever.

What is your least favorite word? Okay, I hate even writing it, but: fart. The act is not as offensive as the word itself is, to me.

What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? Creatively: pressure. Spiritually: sincerity. Emotionally: Humor.
Also, perfectly straight white teeth. (that is from my shallow self)

What turns you off? Creatively: doubt. Spiritually: hypocrisy. Emotionally: excuses
(shallow: greasy, unkempt hair)

What is your favorite curse word? I don't actually curse very often--out loud. However, especially when I'm driving, there's a slight possibility that I might think that other people are <whisper> jackasses.

What sound or noise do you love? The sound of Lulu's paws on a tile floor. The sound of the train going past my house. The sound of my fingers hitting the keyboard as I type. The sound of pens writing on paper. The opening bars of The Office theme.

What sound or noise do you hate? Any noise that's unidentifiable, especially when it's dark.

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? I'd like to be a lawyer, but I'm not willing to do the work to get there. I just like to argue with people. Is there such a thing as a professional argue-er? Because I would totally rock that profession.
Also, I would love love love to participate in sleep studies, if that's a real job. Because I can sleep like nobody's business.

What profession would you not like to do? Social worker. I don't know how those people do it, and God bless 'em, because it would kill me every single day.


If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? Yeah, so Heaven totally DOES exist, and I think God might look over and say, "Hey, Mei!"

I love this, Mei! I might actually copy your idea, but I'm too lazy today to think up good answers...yours are great.

Well, I just had to face up to the fact that I'm never gonna be on the show. But that's no reason not to share my answers anyway!
