Nicole Ducleroir from One Significant Moment in Time has surpassed the 500 followers milestone and she feels like celebrating! This blogfest is designed to bring many of us together to get to know each other better. And she thought it'd be fun to use Bernard Pivot's famous questionnaire to do it. Well, I know a gazillion people have signed up so I'm very honoured that you have tripped over here to France to check on my thoughts of the day.
The questionnaire was originally created by Bernard Pivot, a French journalist, for the cultural series he hosted on French television from 1991-2001, called Bouillon de Culture.
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, everyone's answers will be revealing, telling us interesting things about you.
To show her gratitude for all the wonderful people blogging brings into her life, Nicole is having a giveaway! Signing up for the blogfest automatically enters you in a drawing with cool prizes (TBA). Go to Nicole's blog for further details. You probably still have a bit of time to sign up as my post will be a bit earlier being on the other side of the world 'n all. Winners announced on February 18.
Okay, here's Bernard Pivot's famous questionnaire:
1.What is your favorite word?
My favourite word is 'word'. There'd be no words without 'word' would there?
2.What is your least favorite word?
'No.' Just simply hate that. It takes all the fun out of life.
3.What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
Am I boring - reading?
4.What turns you off?
5.What is your favourite curse word?
Ooooo! I don't curse except when a character calls for it. It would have to be 'bloody' as it isn't classed as a curse word in Oz, really.
6.What sound or noise do you love?
Champagne corks popping! Tres French innit?
7.What sound or noise do you hate?
That horrible ping in Windows when your link is dead. Ping! Eurk!
8.What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Chocolate taster at Harrods.
9.What profession would you not like to do?
Painting roofs in summer in Oz (or any time of year, or any place, actually.)
10.If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
Did you have to bring all that excess baggage. And all that chocolate! And Heaven does so exist. I'll come back and tell you all about it to convine you, but I hope Heaven Can Wait as I have two novels to finish first...better get back to them...
Get outta here and go and read someone else who actually has a brain on today!
