Bernard Pivot Blogfest

This Blogfest is kindly hosted by the lovely Nicole Ducleroir, and I'm posting it up early because I have serious "editor" revisions to be getting on with tomorrow!

I promise I will get around to everyone entered in this blogfest,
but bear with me if it's a couple of days down the line.  

1) What is your favorite word?  = Velvet (encompasses so many sensual aspects in various forms)

2) What is your least favorite word?  =  F*ck!

3) What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? = Artwork (creatively) Woodland/Birdsong (spiritually) Music (emotionally) 

4) What turns you off?  City environment

5) What is your favorite curse word? = shit!

6) What sound or noise do you love? = Waterfall

7) What sound or noise do you hate?  = Traffic

8) What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? =  Artist

9) What profession would you not like to do?  = Nurse (puke & crap bowls would only render up more puke!) 

10) If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? = my name (correct) or I'd suspect I'd either caught the wrong Heaven Express  or should have been given a ticket for the "Hellraiser Club Metro Line".

These are everywhere at the moment: couldn't resist!

Wonderful! I love waterfalls too.

Jennifer Hoffine said...

Great answers (I'm so looking forward to doing this).

And I'm with you on the nurse thing, but more because of giving shots...I'm a complete needle-phobe, even watching others get shots gives me the willies.

Wendy Tyler Ryan said...

Love your list. You're a day early so mine isn't up yet.

j.leigh.bailey said...

Nice... nursing (and the bodily substances one encounters while nursing) would be beyond my abilities, too! :) What a fun list.

Ellie said...

Great answers. I say the s**t word too!

Jessica Bell said...

LOL. Love your answer to 10! Why is everyone so afraid to spell curse words in full? They're just letters. Hmm ... should I go back and censor my post now? LOL

Her highness, Samantha Vérant said...

I wouldn't want to be a nurse either. Needles scare the merde out of me!

Vicki Rocho said...

There's a reason I'm not a nurse...they are underpaid for all the crap (ahem, and that's literal) they have to deal with.

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

I said I wouldn't want to be a nurse, too! Thank goodness for people who do want to nurses, 'cause if the profession were full of people like me, it'd be a sorry travesty!

Thanks for playing along, and best of luck with edits!

Jen Chandler said...

And that's why I'm not in medicine. Blood and guts are fine...but keep the other far, far away!!

I had to giggle at "Hellraiser Club Metro Line". I'm just imagining what that train looks like...


Summer Ross said...

great answers! Velvet is such a nice word!

Kari Marie said...

Velvet is one of my favorite fabrics. Water is a recurring theme today.

Elaine AM Smith said...

On a down side, I never forgave Richard Armitage for killing Maid Marion.

Art and music are inspiring; I love to suggest I could ever represent any object as it would deserve, through my artistic skills.

Arlee Bird said...

I like the sound of waterfalls too, but if you focus on the sound of steady heavy traffic it can sound like a waterfall--sometimes if you use your imagination.

DL Hammons said...

Ahhhhhh.....the sound of a waterfall. *sigh*. :)

Corinne O'Flynn said...

Velvet is such a fab word! :) I enjoyed your list.


Al said...

waterfalls = :-)

Francine Howarth said...

Hi, and thanks to all who stopped by to comment.

I'm on my way over to your blogs now the revision is done and dusted!


L'Aussie said...

*Denise runs in, puffing, puffing, fighting off hackers with her fairy sword* and finally gets to Francine's blog. Sorry I'm late old bean, but I've been tres busy as you know. All is well now, filthy hackers. I hope they catch him/her/them.

Anyway, you are my lovely friend as you managed to keep to short answers and not written a novella like some dedicated writerly folk. Good answers - waterfall (drool). You'd hate living where I do, right in the centre of highrise-ville, but I do love it even though I'm a country girl. I still have my beach house to escape to when I need to.

Hope all goes well in your world. I need to read some of your past posts to catch up.

My Pivot is pivoting at my Paris blog if you want to read my entry and you'll be sorry if you don't ha ha:

Love waterfalls. Check out Al's pictures if you get a chance...wow.
I am with you on #10. If we caught the wrong bus, maybe we could party together on the hellraiser club express.

Look out Lucian here we come.

Great answers, Francine. I'd be an artist too if I could....

Loved the photo!
