Bernard Pivot Blogfest today ... Yep, another one!

Quick, easy blogfest here. Learn a little more about me from a few questions below. Then, peruse the other entries from blofest HDQ at Nicole Ducleroir's blog One Significant Moment in Time.


  1. What is your favorite word?
       I have a few:  shenanigan, bamboozle, tomfoolery, velocity
      
     2.   What is your least favorite word

          Fart. It's funny, but it just has that taboo sound about it ( no pun intended)

  1. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
        Nature
  1. What turns you off?
         Corporate America, and working for The Man
  1. What is your favorite curse word?
         Believe it or not, I don't really curse, therefore I have no faves. I've never                                                                  been a fan of fowl language
  1. What sound or noise do you love?
         my children getting so tickled by something funny they can't stop laughing 
  1. What sound or noise do you hate?
         incessant dog barking 

  1. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
         Sure would like to be a backup dancer for Janet Jackson. Anyone have any connections with her? Once I get that taken care of, I should have no trouble getting my books pubbed.   
  1. What profession would you not like to do?
         Dentist. Ugh! I'd hate having my hands in peep's mouths all day, smelling their stinky breath.
 
  1. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
      "Welcome home, my girl! You did the best you could down there, come ... your palace awaits. Your worries will be no more."


Thanks for dropping by! What about you? What's your fave or least fave word?

Ooh! Can I do back up dancing with you too? Come on! Let's go audition together :o)

J.C. Martin said...

Those are great favourite words! I like all words with a Z in it. :)

Her highness, Samantha Vérant said...

Awesome! you're not only a fellow crusader, but a bernard blogfester! Hey, who likes working for the man????

Margo Benson said...

I love the back-up dancing idea! Fun answers!

Tony Benson said...

The sound of children when they can't stop laughing is wonderful. Couldn't agree more :-)

Constance said...

Hi there crusader,

We are most likely in the same crusader group so i thought i would say hello.

Have had a squiz at your works in progress. Like the idea of 49th parallel :-)

anyway good luck with the writing and crusade

Fart. That's funny. I love the sound of kids giggling. There's something freeing about it.

Cherie Reich said...

Your favorite words are cool! And, I'm all with you about being a dentist. I wouldn't want that job either.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I was going to say being a dental hygienist would suck. A denist is only in your mouth for a few minutes (at least for me), but the hygienist is in there for a long time. I thought about this the other day while dying of boredom at the dentist. ;)

Angela Felsted said...

I'm not a big fan of the F word either, especially since it rhymes with my husband's name, Bart. And there's just something trashy about using it. I prefer fluff, or pass gas, or something, anything else.

Laura said...

Just thought I'd stop by and say hi! I'm a fellow crusader and I saw that we're in the same group!

RosieC said...

Backup for Janet would be AWESOME. Good luck with that. I promise not to get my 2 left feet in your way :)

And, yes, the way you've described it, I think dentistry must be one of the worst jobs. Yick!

Pk Hrezo said...

Did yall see my error there ... "fowl language"??? Is that chicken talk??? LOL!

Ciara said...

Wow, another blogfest. How do you keep up. LOL. I'm a fellow Crusader and a follower now. Just stopped in to say hi. :)

Jennifer Hoffine said...

Those are some mischievous favorite words! I love them all.

M.J. Fifield said...

I love your favorite words. In fact, I haven't stopped saying shenanigan yet.

My favorite word is triskaidekaphobia. It's just fun to say.

Jules said...

LOL, yes how do decide to spend the rest of your life putting your hands in other peoples mouths? Freaky. Fart, not the word but the smell that bothers me :)

Meredith said...

I love your favorite words! I need to use those more often in everyday conversation.

Summer Ross said...

great answers PK- yup Dentist would be a job i don't want to try.

Heather said...

loved reading this ;)

gideon 86 said...

Fun favorite words, PK.

Love the backup dancer for Janet!

I say tomfoolery all the time. Dentist. Ew. Don't blame you there. We say fluffied instead of fart. Sounds so much cuter and as long as its not my daughter, its endurable. Kids laughing is the best. My nephew will sometimes crack up in his sleep. He shakes the bed, he's laughing so hard. But he's sound asleep. Doesn't even remember doing it. He's seven now, but he's done this since he was a baby. Funniest thing I've ever seen.

T C Mckee said...

Well, I came to tell you that you won my contest. Got caught up in your post and forgot. Email me your info and your book choice and I will mail it to you. Congrats! tmckee34@gmail.com

Erin said...

Hey, crusader! Nice to see you in my group. I'll be following/stalking you!

I really like your blog's layout.

Hoping to see some amazing posts from you in the near future!

Florence said...

I like "feisty and balderdash" balderdash is from the old school and feisty talks to the women I love to write about.

One or more words I don't like ... maybe "eclectic" as it was been beaten to death during the pretentious 90's. Or actually the profession you would not want to be. I hear the word dentist and I immediately get a headache :)

Hey, I didn't know you were a crusader. Dope, the bomb ... no they are also throwbacks. Great post :)

Kindros said...

I agree so much with this post. Damn the man and corporate America.

I can't think of a favorite word, but I know my least favorite and it's one I would never say it. It also happens to be considered a swear by most. But yea, the way society has used it, definitely made it unusable.

Raquel Byrnes said...

Trying to post again. Hope this works. I loved your favorite words...I call shenanigans on my brother all the time. =)

Sophia Richardson said...

Oh man, bamboozle is a fantastic word, great choice with that one. And yes, when I read you didn't like fowl language my first thought was along the lines of 'bird racist!' hehe.
- Sophia.

LTM said...

so many of ours are the same! From the bird language to the giggling children to the dentist thing... yeah, that Janet Jackson thing!!! Very good, P~ :o) <3

Erin said...

I'm a member of your Crusade group, stopping by to say hi!

I was a dental assistant for a little while, so I totally agree with the dentist thing. Ew. Mouths are gross. (And the Janet Jackson back-up dancer bit made me laugh!)

See you around!

Shari said...

Your responses were so fun! I'm with you on the whole dentist thing.

It's nice to meet a fellow Crusader.

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

Great answers! And I've always wondered about people who choose to spend careers on icky parts of other people: teeth; feet; prostates -- bleh. LOL

This was fun! Thanks for following along!!

DEZMOND said...

must admit you have the best favourite words from the ones I've seen in this blogfest :) I mean who wouldn't like shenanigan and bamboozle :)))

Nas Dean said...

I would definitely like to be welcomed with "Welcome home, my girl! You did the best you could down there, come ... your palace awaits. Your worries will be no more."

So wonderful, if no more worries!

Holly Ruggiero said...

Great favorite words. I didn’t notice your error until you pointed it out – interesting, Freudian slip perhaps?

Hart Johnson said...

Oh, man--I am so with you on corporate America and working for the man! And i LOVE all your favorite words. Those rank high for me, too.

Angela Scott said...

Thanks for popping by my blog.

You're such a blogfest addict that when I went to click on your link to pop over and say thanks for visiting (and yes, the 8 ball should be enjoyed by all) I noticed you typed your address pz-hrezo.blogfest.com

You're a gal after my own heart :)

Carolyn Cummings said...

I totally agree on the working in people's mouths thing- I have a very sensitive gag reflex, and I think all day I would be a step from throwing up all over the place if there was any food stuck in their teeth or gross smells or just lots of drippy saliva... I;m feeling sick just thinking about it!

DL Hammons said...

My neighbor's dogs bark all the time!!! Grrrrr!!!! :)

Shelley Sly said...

I love your answer for the last question! And man, I would hate to be a dentist, too. Great answers! :)

Kenneth Wayne said...

Favorite: freedom.
Least favorite: starvation.

Cally Jackson said...

Hi PK

I completed this blogfest too. My least favourite word is phlegm. Oh how I hate that word.

I'm in your crusader group - YA (Contemporary/Dystopian/Post-Apocalyptic)! Really looking forward to getting to know you throughout this crusade.

I had a look at your fictional works - I really like the sound of Starsong and would definitely be keen to read it when you're finished!

Thanks
Cally

Rogue Mutt said...

Yes, another one. I think I'm the only one who didn't do it.

Lynda Young said...

bamboozle is a brilliant word!
Hi from a fellow crusader :)

Rachel Morgan said...

Hello fellow crusader!
Stopping by to say hi and to follow you :-) Looking forward to your entry for the first challenge!

xx Rach

PS. I've always wondered what makes people want to become a dentist...

Regina said...

So many great answers. I love when the kiddos start laughing and can't stop. That is a contagious laughter. :D

alberta ross said...

kids laughing - yes! - just stopped by to say hi- fellow crusader - not of your groupbut am working my way through them all

Carol Riggs said...

Hiya, buddy crusader! I'm making the rounds today and checking out your blog. Nice to meet you, and Happy Friday! :)

Chantele Sedgwick said...

Hi fellow crusader! Just stopping by to say hello! Nice to meet you!

William Kendall said...

Shenanigan... that's always a fun word to have about!

I love the sound of a wolf howl.

Sharde(Shar-day) said...

Hi Crusader. I'm making the rounds and wanted to drop in. Can't wait to get to know you better.

tinadchayes said...

I'm a Crusader stoppin in to check out your blog.

My least favorite word is TRY. People use it when they have no intension of 'trying' whatever they're talking about. A person wouldn't 'try' to breathe, they just do it. :)

Heather M. Gardner said...

What I wouldn't give for a job with 'the Man' right now! Thanks for sharing your answers!

Lisa Potts said...

I just had a friend leave her current job to be a dental hygienist. Yuck.
