Inside the Blogger's Studio

Even though James Lipton borders on cantankerous as he haughtily interviews actors, I consistently enjoy the bit at the close of Inside the Actor's Studio when he asks each person the same series of questions. He indicates that this questionnaire originated from Bernard Pivot, a French talk show host (though initial credit is generally applied to novelist Marcel Proust).

Each time Mr. Lipton squirms in his seat and asks his guest identical questions, I find myself playing along. Thusly, here we go:
  1. What is your favorite word? periwinkle
  2. What is your least favorite word? slice
  3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? color
  4. What turns you off? people without passion
  5. What is your favorite curse word? cluster $@#&
  6. What sound or noise do you love? Missouri rainstorms
  7. What sound or noise do you hate? kid t.v. shows
  8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? radiology
  9. What profession would you not like to do? airline gate agent
  10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? Just in time for dinner
PS. For a real hi-lar-ious treat, watch Will Farrell's take on Lipton via SNL.
