Bernard Pivot Blogfest

I love questions that I know all the answer to.

  1. What is your favorite word?  Pez-- I don't even like the candy that much, but it's my go to word.
  2. What is your least favorite word? Dog, not the animal but calling a girl a dog to describe how she looks.
  3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? Awesomeness- it's undefinable and yet totally recognizable, it comes in a million forms.
  4. What turns you off? Goo- gross slime stuff that no longer had recognizable matter or form.
  5. What is your favorite curse word? F*cktard
  6. What sound or noise do you love? Listening to my daughter belly laugh --- you can insert the cheesy music here.
  7. What sound or noise do you hate?- the sound of paper jamming in a photocopy machine or a printer.
  8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Stand up comedian-  But I don't hate myself enough to be one.
  9. What profession would you not like to do? Principal-- THERE'S NOT ENOUGH MONEY IN THE WORLD TO DO THAT JOB.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? "S'up, I'm glad it took you a long time to get here. David Tennent is here and wants to tell you you're awesome."

    1. now that i think about it--f*cktard is a pretty cool curse word :D and kids belly-laughing is SOOOO cute!!
      and bleh, NEVER want to be one. even for a prestigious school. i could write about teens all my life, but actually manage them? no thanks. (assuming its a high school/middle school principal we're talking about).

    2. Pez? That's hilarious. It sounds like you could be in an old episode of Friends.

    3. I didn't know Pez was your go-to word. (Mine is cheese.)

    4. Hearing my kids laugh is way up there on my list too. My oldest sounds like Woodstock (the yellow bird) from Charlie Brown when she hits the apex of her laugh. It's bizarre and heartwarming :)

    5. HI, Erinn,

      Great answers. I love how this questionnaire really shows the reader what you're all about...


    6. F*cktard!! Love it! Is that a noun? I'm totally using this now. And your #8 answer cracked me up.

      Thanks for playing along! I'm off to sign up for your blogfest -- sounds like fun!

    7. Ok, that's the funniest curse word I've read in this blogfest. I'm still laughing over it!


    8. Oh man, being a stand up comedian would be awesome!

    9. Principal is very far from my fav job too. To teach, on the other hand, is really fun >:)

      Cold As Heaven

    10. Awesomeness turns me on as well!

    11. these are great Erinn. We have a great principal at our elementary school, but most of the ones from my childhood were not a lot of fun.

    12. I'm stealing your fave curse word. :)

    13. The gross, slimy stuff sounds like what I see in Bones, NCIS, et al. That jamming of paper reminds me of the copier at work. It never jams until there's some document you need to get copied/printed in a hurry.

    14. The slimy stuff doesn't bother me, but your cuss word made me belly laugh out loud!

    15. Pez! Love it! And I totally agree with the sound of the photocopier jam! Totally annoying!

    16. That's the first time I've seen Stand Up Comedian as a career option. I like that! :)

    17. Stand up comedian would be fun--until they boo me off the stage, then it would become the profession I'd never want to do. I love me some comedy :)

      But I must say, the sound of paper jamming in my printer ticks me off each and every time it does it (which is often).

      Nice answers.

    18. I just used Fucktard in reference to the contestants on Survivor! Great word!
      Thanks for sharing your answers.
