Hello all.
I'm new but not new. One of those "view but not contribute" sort of forum goers. Up until now I have followed along in your discussions so I know a bit about you. How about this though (not sure if it's been done here), you may be familiar with the Bernard Pivot questionnaire from Inside the Actor's Studio. Give it a shot if you feel it fetches your fancy. Let's learn a bit more about the posters of Hatrack .

02. What is your least favorite word?
03. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
04. What turns you off?
05. What is your favorite curse word?
06. What sound or noise do you love?
07. What sound or noise do you hate?
08. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
09. What profession would you not like to do?
10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

1.precarious
2.idiot
3.originality or things I'm not expecting
4.intolerance (or ignorance, can't decide)
5.damn
6.crackling fire
7.a dog bark

2. Fair.
3. Solving a problem.
4. Having to implement the solution.
5. Currently? That'd probably be "frak".
