Inside the actors studio

Visiting Ali earlier I laughed at this comment by Catheroo so of course went looking for the source. And once again found a kindred spirit on the interwebs.

Here’s a post from back in May last year:

As a self-proclaimed pop culture junkie, I love BRAVO’s “Inside the Actor’s Studio.” At the end of each show, the host James Lipton (perfectly portrayed by Will Ferrell on SNL) asks the celebrity guest 10 questions. Because I’ll never be on that show, I’m answering them here. Enjoy, and feel free to post your answers too. It’ll be like a slam/slang book in high school.

I’ve had a draft post on this very subject for ages but never got round to actually watching an episode in order to transcribe the questions. Now it occurs to me that I could simply have googled for the questions but that would have just been too easy, no? Anyway, here are the questions, feel free to pick up on it, especially if you’re procrastinating on the Book Title Meme

  1. What is your favorite word?
  2. So many to choose from. Today it’ll be pumpernickel.

  3. What is your least favorite word?
  4. Gossip.

  5. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
  6. The sea.

  7. What turns you off?
  8. Arrogance.

  9. What is your favorite curse word?
  10. Godverdomme! and Awfuquit.

  11. What sound or noise do you love?
  12. Spontaneous laughter.

  13. What sound or noise do you hate?
  14. Spitefulness. A knife being dragged across a plate.

  15. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
  16. Lottery winner and secret charity founder. Oh go on, I know that sounds a bit Pollyanna-ish but think of the fun you could have finding and anonymously helping those in need.

  17. What profession would you not like to do?
  18. It’s a tie between Bill O’Really‘s therapist and Anne Robinson‘s liver specialist/ clothes stylist.

  19. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
  20. This way to the tea rooms, or would you like to walk the dogs first?

    Thank you Cindy. I’m guessing that your #10 would include the word Vienna?

    Procrastinating on the Book Title Meme? Us? Is there a second part to that meme, by the way? A part containing your answers, for example?

    Besides, I’m not doing it as I’ve not been invited. :-P
