Inside the Actors Studio

I've recently been enjoying watching a few episodes of Inside the Actors Studio.
It's a show where actors are interviewed. Its amazing to see them as real 'people' instead of 'characters'. 
There is a set of questions that is asked at the end! The questions actually originally came from a French series called "Bouillon de Culture".
Now I don't want to be an actor, but I've always wanted to answer these questions!!! 
So here goes:

1. What is your favourite word?
Quinoa. I just love how exotic it sounds. I often walk around the kitchen doing a little chant "keen-wah, keen-wah, keen-wah" - much to my husbands delight of course ;-)

2. What is your least favourite word?
Hmmm, I have to think about this one - I've never really thought about not liking a word! I feel childish if I say the name of some body parts but truly they do have some bad names ;-)

3. What turns you on?
Watching my husband mow the lawn!

4. What turns you off?
The whole low pants thing..... No-one wants to see strangers undies.

5. What is your favourite curse word?
Dam it. But I'm often found using other ones more regularly in place of this.....

6. What sound or noise do you love?
Its pretty lovely to hear my daughters giggle - it warms my heart <3 
And the sound of my ferrets as they rumble each other has got to be the cutest thing ever!!!

7. What sound or noise do you hate?
Lawn mowers - see above!

8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
I would like to study naturopathy but I think my dream job would be a play school presenter. Imagine all the fun you could have doing craft, singing and dancing all day but not having the kids there!!!

9. What profession would you not like to do?
Gynecologist - self explanatory really!

10. If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
"Well done my good and faithful servant."

So there you have it!

Now I have a question for you:

If your child was given this much chocolate for Easter - what would you do?

Would you just let them eat it but in small doses? Is it rude to throw them away? Are they even mine to throw away? Is it better to give them away? 
Obviously I don't approve of my daughter eating dairy but I've never forced her to avoid it either :-/
And I reallllllllllllllllllllllly don't like the way Easter has been commercialised to be all about chocolate.....


  1. I've never heard of this show but had fun reading your answers :) I chuckled at your least liked profession too - yep, can't see that one being on my To Do list any time in this lifetime!

    On the chocolate front, well, my Mum didn't like us having much chocolate as children but Easter we had exceptions. I don't know whether small doses or just getting it out of the way quickly is better but I figure that things in moderation (and in the context of a year even several bunnies could count as moderation!) don't hurt :)

    1. Thanks for your input :-)
      hehehe yep i hear you re the tough decision of getting it over with or having it gone.... ?!?!?!?
      I'm very mindful of a year when she slept walked and binged on the remainder chocolate she had..... she was sick for days! ekkkk

  2. See I love the sound of lawnmowers! It's the sound of summer...or over-zealous neighbours hehe.
    when I was younger my parents used to just give me all my eggs. yes I'd probably eat them all far too quickly and feel a bit sick but that to me was the joy of Easter (we weren't religious). It was just nice to be able to have so much chocolate! A realy novelty for me. Nowadays I'm slightly more refrained...well, a little bit anyway.

    1. Feel free to come mow our lawn next time we're away then !!! ;-)
      hehehee good job on the 'bit' refrained!!!! I had my only easter chocolate in 2 sittings - I think that's a record ;-)

  3. My parents used to make me give mine away. I was allowed some on the day so I wasn't deprived but then sharing was encouraged. Same deal with left over birthday treats. I think having a little was enough really. I think it depends how she'd take it...overall health is a better gift if you ask me!

    1. hehee well yes I do have in mind the year she slept walked and binged on all the leftovers and was sick for days on end :-/
      She did take a few to school this week for 'sharing'!!!!!

  4. As a child I only ever got one Easter egg whilst all my friends got heaps. I felt deprived:((( as a result I always gave my children a couple so they didn't feel like they were missing out. I would probably share your collection with others :)

    Love your questions and answers . I'm not fond of lawnmowers either, but I do love the smell of cut grass, reminds me of my childhood.

    1. Thanks for sharing!
      We have downsized the collection quite a bit the last few days - she has been sharing it with friends which I am finding works quite well. She feels like she's getting to enjoy her eggs but she's not eating it all & getting sick! :-) Working a treat!

      I think cut grass has got to be one of those smells that you either love or hate!!!! lol
