Fun Monday, on Tuesday

I’ve enjoyed reading about Mary’s childcare experiences over at It’s Not All Mary Poppins, and I’m taking this meme from her.

1. What is your favorite word?

I think my favorite words come from my Mennonite/Anabaptist heritage.  I love the words Agape and Jubilee.  I think my favorite Spanish word might be biblioteca, it just has such a nice ring, but I’m sure that’s just because I haven’t studied or spoken Spanish in a long, long time.  One of my favorite signs is “turtle”, another is “EARLY”.

2. What is your least favorite word?

Possibly wench, but that’s just what comes to mind.

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

A really good singer, dancing (especially ballroom, uuummmm… balero and argentine tango, like sex on hardwood ;), a sunlit deciduous woods

4. What turns you off?

snobiness and people who are sarcastic in a demeaning way.

5. What is your favorite curse word?

bloody hell, I never use it though, I probably like it because it’s British.
6. What sound or noise do you love?

Cello music, a cat’s purr, and baby babble/giggles

7. What sound or noise do you hate?

noodles being slurped, my alarm clock, anything that makes noise when my babies are sleeping.

8. What profession, other than your own, would you like to attempt?

Marriage councilor (someday when, you know, I’ve been married for a while), school councilor, musical theater actress, interior designer, mid-wife, linguist, teacher, ceramicist.  Some of those are more realistic than others.

9. What profession would you not like to attempt?

Doctor, especially an anesthesiologist, or surgeon (first off, there are 3 doctors in my immediate family, we don’t need anyone else in the medical profession. second, I’m terrified of needles, and would not be able to deal with having people’s lives in my hands like that), anything where you had no interaction with people, any corporate job.

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

I always loved you even at your worst.

Thanks for playing along.

So how did you survive China, with that whole slurping of the noodles, that must have been a lot of deep breaths. 🙂

[…] I recently cited slurping noodles as a sound I hate, and Abby commented asking me how I handled China with such a dislike.  The […]
