Bernard Pivot Blogfest

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

This one sounded to good to pass up. Ms. Nicole Duclerior over at One Significant Moment at a Time is  hosting today's blogfest. A simple little fest where you just have to answer a few questions or so I thought.

When I first read how simple this was I envisioned, “Oh man, easy;" not. The television makes it look easy but try answering these in the moment. Any who… on to the fest.


1. What is your favorite word? FREE
2. What is your least favorite word? HATE
3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? oddities of the heart and of nature.
4. What turns you off? main stream, the norm
5. What is your favorite curse word? well it isn’t puck.
6. What sound or noise do you love? laughter 
7. What sound or noise do you hate? The severe weather siren
8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? well since I do not have a current profession, philanthropist
9. What profession would you not like to do? pick up road kill.
10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? The concert has already started did you bring some extra lighters?! Janis is on next, followed by Stevie Ray.

Thank you Nicole for such a fun little questionnaire and be sure to hop over to read the rest of the entrants answers.

I’ll be back Friday and on track. See you guys then. Happy Hump Day!

Mainstream and the norm! I've been so far away from those for so long that I'd forgotten they existed!

Great answer for #10.

So, IndianaU has a silly rivalry with Purdue, and you can buy shits that say "Puck Furdue". Your answer for #5 made me think of that.

Yeah, please, don't ever resort to picking up road kill. Please. :) Philanthropist sounds much better.

Oh, yes! Definitely love the word FREE! And frexing stems from Financial Resources Exchange (in Across the Universe) - although your idea for it was kind of funny!

Puck, awesome answers!!! LOL I especially liked #10. And picking up road kill has to be one of the saddest, nastiest jobs on the planet.

Thanks for playing along!!

Funny, I've always been the "different" one and because of that have wanted to be more "normal" and "average". Grass is always greener...
