I was tagged by the creator of this meme, Rebecca at Book Lady’s Blog. It is just a little get to know you meme, a la ‘inside the actor’s studio.’
What is your favorite word?
I have waaay too many favorite words. So many that I have no idea what they are. Every so often, though, I hear a word, turn to whoever is near me, and exclaim, “I LOVE that word!”
If we were playing Apples to Apples, however, I could tell you that a few of my favorite ‘words’ are “The Dump,” “Duct Tape,” “The Universe,” “Wheat,” and “Charging Rhinos.”
What is your least favorite word?
Any of the words describing genitalia that have turned into really bad insults. The female ‘c’ word, in particular, makes me absolutely cringe.
What turns you on (creatively, spiritually or emotionally)?
Spending quiet time with my husband, books, snuggling up some place warm, Culvers Concrete Mixers (frozen custard) with peanut butter cup
What turns you off (creatively, spiritually or emotionally)?
Stupid people (not people who are actually cognitively challenged, those who cannot be bothered to use their brains), fish, not having enough time to read
What sound or noise do you love?
My cats purring, rain drops, thunder, crackling fire.
What sound or noise do you hate?
Anything too incessant and rhythmic. It drives me crazy when someone cannot stop tapping or clicking his or her pen. I prefer more sporadic noises like those above, even when they do go on for awhile.
What is your favorite curse word?
Crap, because it is such a versatile word. Things can be crap, crappy, crap-taculous, crap-tastic, etc.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Professional reviewer, book publicist, etc. Something where I get paid to read and can do it from home.
What profession would you not like to do?
Anything that involves dealing with really stupid/annoying people very much of the time.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
Come on in!
Now it is your turn!
