"The Questionnaire"

35 posts in this topic

Hey Community!

I watch Inside the Actor's Studio often as I find it interesting, if you have never watched it fair enough (i'm a geek) but it basically interviews major movie stars about how they started out, how they got to be famous, how they perfected their craft and all of this is done in front of a student audience. They end every interview with what is called "The Questionnaire" which is a series of basic questions that most people wouldn't know about a movie star. For sun, I figured I would post it here and you can respond.

Great questionnaire, Stabler! Very thought-provoking.

1. What is your favorite word?

This varies, but I currently like "defenestrate."

2. What is your least favorite word?

Because of meaning alone: "work." Because of sound and meaning combined: "mildew."

3. What sound or noise do you love?

The laughter of anyone I love.

4. What sound or noise do you hate?

The shriek of old windshield wipers. Though I agree with you, Stabler, about alarm clocks.

5. What turns you on?

Eye contact, warmth, and good smells.

6. What turns you off?

Crudeness, disrespect, and bad smells.

7. What is your favorite curse word?

It's a toss-up between "darn," "dang it," and "poop!"

Please excuse my language!

8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

If I could not fail, singing or writing. Based on my current talents, maybe working as a book editor.

9. What profession would you least like to attempt?

Being a waitress; I am sure I could do it well, but I think I would hate every minute of it.

10. If Heaven exists, what would you want to hear God say to you when you arrive at the pearly gates?

Ah, Neen, you stole my answer: "Welcome home!" would be great to hear, as would the traditional, "Well done, good and faithful servant." Something like, "Here's your mansion" would be cool too, but really, he need not say anything. I'm sure I'll be happy just to be with him.

"Notwithstanding" is used to mean "Despite," or "Lack of." But it is used at the end of the sentence.

So if I said "You're a smart girl, your discipline problem notwithstanding."
