It's all about me, me, me!

As seen at The Paper Chase.

Too many to name. I heart language!

What turns you on?
Intelligence. A sense of humor. Tall people (yes, I can be shallow).

Arrogance.

What sound do you love?
Lucas's laughter. Mr. Trillwing's giggles when he's cracking himself up and he doesn't know I can hear him

What sound do you hate?
Other people flossing. Ewwwww!

What is your favorite curse word?
Favorite? "By Grabthar's hammer!" But is it my most used? 'Fraid not. I need to work on that. . .

"Your friends and family are just over there waiting to say hello, having been raptured* at the exact same moment as you were so that you didn't have to watch them die or cause them any pain with your own death. Here's your pony."

*I use this term ironically, of course.

I am going to start using "by Grabthar's hammer" on a regular basis. I find it works best with a shaken fist.

Gosh, I thought it was more of an oath than a curse--isn't the whole line something like, "By Grabthar's hammer, I will avenge thee"? Regardless, it's always good to be prepared to be on "Inside the Actor's Studio." That James Lipton guy has a nice word for everyone.

Ah, yes. . . Of course it's an oath. But when one has a sixth-month-old who's beginning to babble some word-like sounds, one must be creative, especially when my alternative tends to be "f**k!" (See? I can't even type it here because the little guy is sitting next to me.) Besides, I think it'll be really cute when Lucas is a year or so old and is shouting "By Grabthar's hammer!" :)

I love it when James Lipton quizes people! Good answers!

As parents, we learn quickly. I remember a (thankfully) short-lived moment with the Painter who, when frustrated by some toy, took to calling it this fucket thing! It was quite a lot of work not to complete lose it when he did that. We resisted, and he's dropped it. :)
