James Lipton’s Bernard Pivot Questions:

1. What is your favorite word? — Possibilities

2. What is your least favorite word? — Fat

3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? — Music

4. What turns you off? — Humiliation

5. What is your favorite curse word? — Shit

6. What sound or noise do you love? —My cat’s purr

7. What sound or noise do you hate? — People yelling at each other

8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? — Forensic scientist

9. What profession would you not like to do? — Sales

10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? — Welcome home

One thought on “Odds & Ends

  1. I read your comment on “I can has cheez burger” about the “I am the Library Cat” posting (the large white unfriendly-looking cat).

    I’m head of the music library at Florida State University. Years ago we became so dishearted about not having a library cat (this is a no-no in university libraries) that we have numerous pictures of cats in our back rooms and even had a stuffed chesire cat (a cutout, sew, and stuff, kids toy probably from the 60’s). I think “fup” from Powell’s Books was the first photo posted. It was taken directly from Powell’s site and is about 1/2″ x 1/2″ in size, but is mounted in a very large golden mat frame. Dewey, of course, also has his place in our library, maybe in part because “Library of Congress” just doesn’t seem like a very good cat name.

    Anyway, just want to say “hi,” and enjoyed your post as a librarian.
