James Lipton’s Questionnaire

  1. What is your favorite word? i really do love words, and there are many that make it onto my ‘favorites’ list. if i had to pick one right now? goodness.  but that might if you asked me again in an hour.
  2. What is your least favorite word? panties. it makes me cringe.
  3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? water. music. mountains. pyilocybin. fire. the energies that make up the universe.
  4. What turns you off? advertising. stupidity. those that take this all too seriously.
  5. What is your favorite curse word? i probably use ‘fuck’ the most, but i also tend to string together long, nasty, dirty compound words, most often directed at inanimate objects. email me if you want examples.
  6. What sound or noise do you love? moving water – babbling brook, rushing stream, or ocean waves. rain on the vinyl roof of my car. windchimes, if the right tone and distance. am talk radio as background noise. 
  7. What sound or noise do you hate? i can’t stand the sound of knives being sharpened or a fork being scraped on teeth. both make me want to jump out of my skin – it is really so uncomfortable that i don’t know what to do with myself. 
  8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? most people that know me know that i really enjoy baking, and would be thrilled to turn that into a career. a few lesser-known things i’d like to try? boston duck tour guide, long distance truck driver, bartender, stage manager, ice sculptor.
  9. What profession would you not like to do? i couldn’t handle anything involving birds. or the constant use of math.
  10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates‘good job spreading the love, thats all i ever want you humans to do. here, take a hit from heaven’s bong. ‘
