Inside the Reader’s Studio

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!

  • How did “evidently” not make into the favorite words category?! Also, I believe “rum” should probably be included… :) And perhaps…”inconceivable!,” although, I do not think it means what you think it means…

  • If I am ever in your area, we must play Apples to Apples! I love this game and we have no one to play it with. I love your favorite words and I hope that someday you find that job you’re looking for. BTW, when I was getting ready to mail off the bookmarks this afternoon, I found the $10 bill I meant to include in your wedding gift – my pledge from your reading marathon. I’ve included it with your bookmarks. I hope you didn’t think I went back on my word! :)

    I have one thing to say:


    Oh, wait, I have one more thing to say… reading about Culver’s made my mouth water a little bit.. although Ritter’s is better!

    <3, Sister

  • Getting paid to read sounds good :)

  • It just occurred to me that maybe I should mention that I finally put my answers up.

    Oh, and I’m totally with LiterateHousewife and you on the Apples to Apples love. We used to play it in the SciFi club in college- oh how I miss those super-dorky late night game playing sessions . . .
