Daily Prompt: Inside the Actor’s Studio

  1. What is your favorite word? ~ Cogitate
  2. What is your least favorite word? ~ I have two least favorite words, both of which are vulgar. I hate what they imply, that they are typically used in anger and full of hate. Since this is a PG blog, I can’t print them.
  3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? ~ I’m a slightly hypersensitive introvert, so I find many things stimulating. I find the smell of spring, of growth, inspiring. I find most kinds of music have the ability to drive me, make me move, make create, do, accomplish. I find the positive aura of happy, emotionally grounded people to generate a sympathetic response in my own psyche.
  4. What turns you off? ~ Violence, anger, hatred. I’m too strongly conflict adverse for my own good, it ultimately causes me to shut down completely.
  5. What is your favorite curse word? ~ I don’t really have one. But my favorite memory of cursing is the first time I heard my grandmother curse.  I cannot remember what caused it, but out of her mouth came “SHIT, PISS, AND CORRUPTION!!!” I was in hysterics.
  6. What sound or noise do you love? ~ Roxy’s “I missed you!” yodel and Anthony’s laugh.
  7. What sound or noise do you hate? ~ A raised voice.
  8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? ~ Marine Biology. I read about Eugenie Clark in the third grade and have been fascinated by the science ever since.
  9. What profession would you not like to do? ~ Sales
  10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? ~ I tend to shun human contact. I keeps me from creating and nurturing emotional connections with people, which I, sadly, have always felt made me safer.  The irony is that I tend to crave human contact as a result (I had this overwhelming need for a hug from my dad this morning on the way to work – only he lives 2000 miles away from me). I wouldn’t want God to say anything, I’d simply want a hug.  We say so many things through touch, more than most can say with words. I think it allows our hearts to speak to each other without our mouths messing things up. It’s a more pure form of communication.
