I have been tagged by Inkhorn Platypus to answer a few questions about myself. This is my first time being tagged, and I'm kind of excited about it! So without further ado, lets get to this question business.
What is your favorite word?
I have to say that I've loved the word plethora for many years. It just has such a nice sound rolling off the tongue. I don't often hear it used, but its my favorite all the same.
What is your least favorite word?
I hate the word carbuncle. Not only is the definition ugly, but I think the word in itself is hideous. Coming across that word in any connotation always makes me feel squicky.
What turns you on (creatively, spiritually or emotionally)?
I am turned on by emotional expressiveness, honesty, wit, and intelligence.
What turns you off (creatively, spiritually or emotionally)?
People who are mean just to be mean, closed-mindedness, insincerity and lying.
What sound or noise do you love?
The sound of waves, rain tapping on the glass, laughter, the traffic from my bedroom window at night. The little pig noises my dog makes when she's happy.
What sound or noise do you hate?
Snoring! Screaming, cell phones ringing while watching a movie.
What’s your favorite curse word?
I like the very old fashioned arse. For a curse word it sounds kind of classy, and it's not exactly bandied about all that much, which makes it a little unique (at least in America).
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
I would love to be a librarian. To be surrounded by all those books would be an absolute dream. I imagine that I'd be a lot more well-read than I am right now, and It would be cool to be able to offer suggestions to people on reading material. My answer was going to be to work at a bookstore, but I would come home penniless, I'm afraid.
What profession would you not like to do?
I would not like to work in any form of government job. I speak from experience.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
Hey, glad you're here, we were waiting for you to get here to start the party!
I am tagging three people to answer the same questions:
Dawn at She Is Too Fond Of Books.
Marie at The Boston Bibliophile.
Lana at A Hoyden's Look at Literature.
