I'll have to agree and say the "C" word.

F*ck. Even though I actually hate it.

8. What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
I'm still in undergrad. But, if not SMing, then journalist, wedding planner, or technical director.

9. What profession would you not like to do?
One where I don't have direct contact with people. I love people! I couldn't do a strictly desk job.

"The dog park is over there! Let's meet up for some milk later!" (God doesn't like coffee either.)
To be a good stage manager you need to have the soul of an artist, the mind of a director, the eye of a designer, the joy of being an actor...
and the ability to manage them all.

I love the word "gazebo".  It's just fun to say.  Gazebo.  Or "curtailed".  That's a fun word.

People who are delusional, who don't see things.  And motorcycles, I have a lifelong hatred of motorcycles, long story.

Bacon sizzling, mmm.  I am also a sucker for the first few bars of an overture, it means the fun is about to begin :)

I don't think I could ever enter the medical profession.

The courage to change the things I can,
And the Wisdom to hide those people...

1. What is your favorite word?
Defenestration. (n. the act of attempting to kill or injure someone by throwing them out a window)

2. What is your least favorite word?
Yolo.

3. What turns you on?
Growing up, my mother and I would tease each other incessantly. I can only date people who "get" that: who understand that I show affection by teasing, who can dish it out, and who find it all hilarious.

4. What turns you off?
Gratuitous, smug, self-important, disempowering cynicism. I'm not an optimist by any stretch of the imagination, but I have no patience whatsoever for this sort of nonsense.

5. What sound do you love?
The music of Philip Glass.

6. What sound do you hate?
The dim hum of a  fluorescent light. (Compact LEDs? YES PLEASE.)

7. What is your favorite curse word?
Damn.

8. What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
Theatre journalist/reviewer.

9. What profession would you not like to do?
Stay-at-home parent. (I'm glad that stay-at-home parents do what they do. I do not resent them or think they're wasting their time or anything in that line. But you could not pay me to do it.)

10. If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?
"I've saved you a table with Dorothy Parker and Lillian Hellman."
