10 Questions

I'm not delusional. I know I'll never be on Inside The Actor's Studio. I'm not, nor will I ever be an Actor, but if I was an Actor, these would be my answers to James Lipton's 10 Questions at the end of our episode:

What is your favourite word?

What is your least favourite word? 

What turns you on?

What turns you off?

What sound or noise do you love?

What sound or noise do you hate? 

What is your favourite curse word? 

What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?

What profession would you not like to do?

Finally if heaven exists what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates? 

Apparently I'm not that different from other creatives:

Couple Communication 101:

Jerry Warriner: In a half an hour, we'll no longer be Mr. and Mrs. Funny, isn't it.
  • Lucy Warriner: Yes, it's funny that everything's the way it is on account of the way you feel.
  • Jerry Warriner: Huh?
  • Lucy Warriner: Well, I mean, if you didn't feel that way you do, things wouldn't be the way they are, would they? I mean, things could be the same if things were different.
  • Jerry Warriner: But things are the way you made them.
  • Lucy Warriner: Oh, no. No, things are the way you think I made them. I didn't make them that way at all. Things are just the same as they always were, only, you're the same as you were, too, so I guess things will never be the same again. 
Five Minutes later: 
  • Lucy Warriner: You're all confused, aren't you?
  • Jerry Warriner: Aren't you?
  • Lucy Warriner: No.
  • Jerry Warriner: Well you should be, because you're wrong about things being different because they're not the same. Things are different except in a different way. You're still the same, only I've been a fool... but I'm not now.
  • Lucy Warriner: Oh.
  • Jerry Warriner: So long as I'm different don't you thing that... well maybe things could be the same again... only a little different, huh?
