Although I had to google James Lipton to refresh my memory, I thought his questions were kind of fun, so here goes:
1. What is your favourite word?
I don't have a favourite, but here is one I like a lot:
I had this word originally, then saw Jill's list - with the same word - so I changed my word so as not to seem repititive, but now have decided to stick with this fab word...doesn't it just roll off the tongue?
2. What is your least favourite word?
I tend to love words so even if they are harsh sounding, they can still be fun to pronounce. The only way a word would be a least favourite would be because of an ugly meaning, such as words used as insults. From that perspective, perhaps "filthy" because the use of that word as a derogatory adjective makes me flinch.
3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
That is really three entirely different questions...
Creatively: exploring connections.
Spiritually: anyone who recalls my Valentine's Day post will know the answer to this one.
Emotionally: acts of compassion
4. What turns you off?
People who are stingy with their resources, whether time, talent, or treasure.
6. What sound or noise do you love?
Laughter, especially that of my two daughters.
7. What sound or noise do you hate?
Voices raised in anger.
8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Pretty much anything other than my own (see next question!)
Ok, a real answer: Art historian or perhaps philosopher
9. What profession would you not like to do?
Accounting...which is most unfortunate considering my current position as Coordinator of Accounting Services :)
10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
(I think a morning person wrote that question!)
If I think about Heaven at all, I envision a feeling of absolute acceptance, forgiveness and wholeness of spirit, nothing so concrete as a conversation with God.
