I've been tagged!

Susanne tagged me for this little meme. I confess I had to ask my kids for help on some of these when my brain went blank. Why is it they can peg me every time?

What is your favorite word?
I would have to say "actually" and "realistically" probably tie with "you've got to be kidding me!"

What is your least favorite word?

“Like” and “whatever,” as in “I was, like, going to the store, or whatever, and, like, there was this guy or whatever…” Can you tell we have the preteen set here? We are seriously working on this one, to very, very little avail, unfortunately. Sheesh.

What turns you on spiritually, emotionally, creatively?
Spiritually – The “I get it” moment realizing the truth-in-real-life of a scripture or principle thought I'd known all my life. Also, hearing an old hymn and appreciating the truth of the words.

Emotionally – Talking (or blogging) with genuine, warm-hearted people. When food is involved it is even that much better.

Creatively – Watching my kids grow up. Never thought I could ever feel so happy, sad, angry, excited, frustrated and proud, all at the same time!

What turns you off?
– Phoniness in any form. Religious jargon.
Emotionally – Same as above, plus people who are condescending.
Creatively - Deadlines.

What is your favorite curse word?
None, unless you count “Good grief” and "Oh. My. Gracious!"

What sound or noises do you love to hear?
Silence. It’s pretty rare around here! I don't even listen to the radio if I get to be alone in the car.

What noise do you hate?
Children arguing.

What profession other than your own would you like to try? Interior design and landscape design. What a joy to spend other people's money to make beauty!

What profession would you not like to do?
Anything that is done in shifts. Working nights, evenings and weekends as a nurse drove me absolutely crazy!

I'd like to tag Kris and Jenn for this brain teaser!

Good to know you better, Katherine. Loved your "silence" answer. I'm sure you don't get a whole lot of it. And I'm so there with you on the food and talking/blogging thing. In fact, I'm having a cookie right now chatting with you. :)
