Nari at The Novel World tagged me for this fun meme that’s been going around today.
What is your favorite word?
I really have no idea. I’ve got a fairly extensive vocabulary, although you’d never know from reading this blog! So, in theory, I should have many to choose from. I think I’d choose archaic, though, mainly because it sounds cool and old.
What is your least favorite word?
Any derogatory, negative word. Mainly the words that I sometimes get in spam comments and emails that have to do with sexual activities.
What turns you on (creatively, spiritually or emotionally)?
The soft sound of rain, it’s inspiring all by itself. A rainy evening is conducive to so much more intellectually than a sunny one. I’m also going to go with intelligent conversation, people who are knowledgeable about the same things as I am.
What turns you off (creatively, spiritually or emotionally)?
Ignorance, and no desire to improve upon that ignorance. This is also known as being close-minded.
What sound or noise do you love?
My fiance’s voice wins this contest by a mile. I also love the hum of an air conditioner, for whatever reason.
What sound or noise do you hate?
Shouting, rap music, loud dogs, fireworks when I’m not interested in them.
What is your favorite curse word?
Bastard. I love the word bastard. Mainly because in my head it’s not really a swear word, it means illegitimate child, so I enjoy these dual meanings. It’s also just fun to say. I don’t swear much otherwise and I make a point of never using the f word.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
As I am still a student, I will have to list theoretical professions. My number one is becoming an academic and inspiring people to love medieval history, while being able to continue research on it myself for my entire life. I wouldn’t mind working in a museum; I loved my internship last semester and I’m planning on looking for a job in a museum while I’m at York. I’d also like to be a professional book reviewer or work somewhere else in publishing.
What profession would you not like to do?
I will never work in food service ever again.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
Similar to Nari’s – I’d like him to say, “Here is your brother” and take me to him.
Now, to tag!
Apologies if I tagged anyone a second time – I tried not to, but my google reader search is rejecting me so I can’t be entirely certain!
