Bernard Pivot Blogfest - 10 questions-10 answers

Welcome to the Bernard Pivot Blogfest!

"What I love about the questionnaire is you can either answer the questions with all the truth in your heart, or you can approach them with creativity and cleverness -- finding answers or deliveries no one else has ever come up with.  But which ever way you go, each of your answers will be revealing, telling us interesting things about you."
From: Nicole Ducleroir


1. What is your favorite word? Rhubarb

2. What is your least favorite word? But.
Because it’s usually followed by bad news…usually.

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

4. What turns you off? Stress.

5. What is your favorite curse word?  Fuck!
In the right context.

6. What sound or noise do you love? My son and husband laughing together.

7. What sound or noise do you hate? The alarm clock.

8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Before I wanted to be an author, I wanted to be a rock star.

9. What profession would you not like to do? Anything with numbers. 

10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?  
We’re closed for remodeling.

 Thanks for stopping in.


  1. Heather, I enjoyed reading your answers from BLogfest...stop over at my place if you have time!
    I really like #10 :)

  2. Fun answers! We share the same favorite curse word. Your answer for #10 cracked me up!

    And I'm with you: being a rock star would, well, rock!

    Thanks for playing along!

  3. Tracy - Thank you! I liked your answers too. Thank you for coming over!

    Nicole - Yeah. Popular curse word. Thanks for hosting such a fun blogfest.

  4. LOVE this- I have never thought about it before, but rhubarb is a DELIGHTFUL word.

  5. Rhubarb--that really is a fun word, the way it sort of rolls off the tongue and the almost audible silent H. :)

  6. I can totally relate to the alarm clock. Hate everything about it.

  7. I've never had it, but rhubarb is a fun word. If you're interested, you can visit and see my responses at:

  8. Great answers! I always wanted to be a rock star too :o) Do you play any musical intrument?

  9. Wendy - Thank you!

    KO & j.leigh.bailey - It is a great word. Its part of a joke in our family so we actually use the word a lot. Thanks for reading and commenting!

    Liz - I know I have to get up but does it have to be so annoying? Thanks for coming.

    Sylvia & Michelle - I have only had rhubarb when it is mixed with strawberries and baked in a pie. Then it's REALLY good. But I haven't really had it in other things. Maybe it's time to branch out! Thank you both for stopping in.

    Jessica - I don't play any instruments. I like to think that I can sing, but I also like to think that I'm a writer!
    There is that whole can't speak in front of people thing going on too so that pretty much burns that bridge.
    I appreciate you coming by.

  10. The alarm really makes me want to be violent and that's just the start of the day!

  11. The alarm clock!! Of course! Great answer. Nice learning more about you. The word rhubarb is fun but ewww.... sure doesn't taste good.

  12. Rebecca - I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one! Thanks for coming.

    Pk - Hello and thanks. I don't mind the rhubarb with sweet strawberries! Appreciate you coming.

    DL - But...sometimes I guess we get good news always seems like we get more bad! Nice of you to stop in!

  13. Rock and roll band member, star or not, is one of my fantasies as well.

    Tossing It Out

  14. Lee - I always wanted to be in a garage band that played local bars on the weekends for free beer and wings. If only...
    Thanks for visiting!

  15. Finally making my way over for the blogfest! Sorry I'm late visiting.

    Good reply to #2 and we have 5 in common. =)

    It was great "meeting" you. =)

  16. Shannon - Thank you and nice to meet you too! I am still going through the entries myself. There are so many!

  17. Very good reason to detest the word 'but'

  18. J.L. - But...sometimes I suppose we do get good news!
    Thanks for coming to visit!

  19. "Rhubarb"

    Yup. That's a pretty good one alright. It looks good and it's sharp on the tongue.

  20. Loved your answers, and yes, nice name you have there too! I am also a Heather M.

    Congrats on almost 100!

  21. D - Thank you. Sharp on the tongue, that's a good description.

    Heather - We Heathers must stick together! Thanks for coming by!

  22. Fuck seems very popular.
    'Closed for re-modelling' - hilarious.

  23. Al - It truly was the most popular curse word. Fuckin' awesome.
    Thanks for stopping in!

  24. rhubarb. good one.

    Right there with you on the alarm clock.

  25. Jennifer - The dreaded alarm. I saw a few mentions of that one.
    I appreciate you stopping in.

  26. Great answers! #10 had me laughing...:)

  27. Jamie - Thanks. I'm still going through the blogfest entries too. There are so many good blogs and great answers. Thanks for coming by.

  28. The closed for remodeling may be a problem - where are they housing you during this interruption of operation? Don't let them send you to the alternative resort, though I do have a beach house there - I just can't rcommend the weather. Have them fly you home and give you a raincheck.
