Jaggy had a wonderful post yesterday which I will copy here today. If you’ve ever seen Inside the Actor’s Studio, James Lipton asks every guest the series of questions below. This is the closest I’ll come to ever doing a Meme.

1. What is your favorite word? Canada.
2. What is your least favorite word? Smitten, it sounds like a glove for young cat or like it is related to smite.
3. What turns you on? Restful naps.
4. What turns you off? Being awake between the hours of 10pm and 5am.
5. What sound or noise do you love? Summer rain.
6. What sound or noise do you hate? The wind above 60mph.
7. What is your favorite curse word? Rat Bastard.
8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Pathologist/Coroner.
9. What profession would you not like to do? Auto Sales.
10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? Ha ha, you were wrong you Rat Bastard.

Rat bastard is mine too. Followed by asshat. Back in the day, it was f* me runnin' - like 30 years ago. The evolution of the curse word needs some research I'm thinking.

Thanks, Mr. Guy, for the link-back. I have been holding on to this quasi-meme for a long time and finally hit the 'post' button.

I'm with you on "smitten." And I don't know if God calls people "rat bastards," but He might make an exception for you (I mean that in the nicest way possible).

:) Thanks again!

1. Booger, cuz it's such a versatile word.

2. Um, it's nasty word that will make me slap a strange man with all the strength in my upper body. Enough said.

3. My husbands pheromones when he's happy.

4. bad financial news

5. clucking happy chickens

6. dirt bikes.

7. Chicken shit, it's a family tradition

8. Firefighter

9. Cop, well I'd like it but I'd shoot people to easily so it would be a really bad career choice for me.

10. Hey, you're not supposed to be here yet! Get back down there!

Lori, we are cut from the same cloth.

Auntie, Flatulent Politicians? Care to share more on this one?

Jaggy, thanks, Darlin.

Beth, I could tell you needed a smile ; )

Weese, that's a standard issue word on the east coast.

G that barely qualifies as a curse. I know you can do better.

CCF, Um...what can I say?;)

Bpaul, aren't the two in #8 dead?

Lying in state wasn't really what I was shooting for, so -- you know, what they did for a living. Nature presenters, writers, travelers, explorers of nature.

More specific sir? hehe

Guy - after having kids, i went into a self imposed curse diet. Prior to having children, the definition of drunken sailor was mainstay. Caligula would have blushed.
