Bernard Pivot Blogfest!

Nichole Ducleroir got this entire thing started and I heard about it from a guy who saw something about it when he was looking over a girl's shoulder in a wifi shop while waiting for a latte... ok, total lie, but it sounds good. The truth is that I saw it this morning while I was trying desperately to catch up on blog stuff (I haven't caught up on anything because I'm doing this instead) and it seemed like too much fun to miss. So here goes.



* What is your favorite word?
Indomitable

* What is your least favorite word?
But

* What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
Pen, paper, nature

* What turns you off?
humanity scraping over nature, rather than trying to exist within it

* What is your favorite curse word?
Probably Hell's pit

* What sound or noise do you love?
Leaves falling through trees, horses chewing, train whistles my best friend snorting while she laughs

* What sound or noise do you hate?
traffic

* What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Something in the circus

* What profession would you not like to do?
anything with customer service

* If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
I'd love it if he just erupted into belly laughs

  1. The circus! How could I forget about the circus??? That's an awesome choice of alternate employment! I always wanted to try the trapeze :)

  2. Fellow blogfest participant and new follower here. I really like both of your profession answers. The circus would be so much fun. I've seen documentaries about how hard the career can be, but to spend your life putting a smile on someone's face would be amazing!

  3. Hey, thanks for the follow! You make such a good point. Most of mankind has little reverence for nature anymore. I fear what the world will look like in another 100 years. And the circus! What fun!

    And you're soooo right about so many people not respecting Nature. It just frosts me!

  6. Kittie I LOVE the term 'frosts' my anything! I say it all the time, and kids are always like 'Wtf? Frosts? What are you, like from the middle ages?' Then I have to laugh and give them a little lesson on history and colloquialisms...

  7. I love your answers! Especially God giving you a big belly laugh! Hell's pit is hilarious! Love it :D
    I'm with you on people disrespecting nature. Ugh. I won't get started on THAT rant.

    Cheers!

  8. Haha! You had me going in your intro! I wish the scene in the wifi shop were true -- how cool would that be?

    Loved reading your answers. I'm put off by the way we often control nature instead of living in harmony within it. I liked how you stated it: scraping over nature. Well put!

    Thanks so much for playing along today!

  10. I had to come over to see who would have such an awesome name. Artemis Grey...that is an author's moniker if I ever heard one. =) Good luck with your quest for an agent. Best place to get one is at a conference...do you go? If not, you totally should.

  11. Argh! Customer Service! I wish I didn't have to deal with customers every day...they can be so difficult! And I love the idea of a belly-laughing God. Also, your name rocks :)
