I always found it fascinating to hear the various answers to the questions asked by James Lipton at the end of each interview on "Inside the Actor's Studio". It should be interesting to hear the answers from the members of this board, so here goes:
What is your favorite word? Interesting What is your least favorite word? C**t What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? Curiosity What turns you off? Indifference What is your favorite curse word? Farkle What sound or noise do you love? Waves What sound or noise do you hate? Car alarms What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Writing What profession would you not like to do? Garbage man If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? "Wanna go again?"

These are so hard! [Perhaps I am just indecisive...]
What is your favorite word? [This changes all the time!*] At the moment, it might be: Alas! [It's so underused, and makes me so oddly happy every time I hear someone say it.]
What is your least favorite word? Discombobulated [It just sounds like a lot of letters that should not be put together. Also, I cannot imagine anyone actually pronouncing it in an attractive manner.]
What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? Passion, enthusiasm, curiosity, modesty, kindness [There's nothing in the world more attractive than people who are not afraid to be passionate about something, are insatiably curious, and are modest and kind when dealing with others. There is also nothing that gets me as excited about a piece of work than hearing its author(s) talk about it with genuine enthusiasm. It is part of the reason I love Director's notes in theatre programmes. There are often whole universes just waiting to be discovered in those!]
