Inside the Actor’s Studio

In 2009 I was tagged by a friend in a Facebook post to answer a questionaire that asked questions similar to the questions James Lipton would ask on “Inside the Actor’s Studio”. I thought it would be fun to answer the questions as my present day self and see if any of my answers changed 8 years later.

What is your favorite word?
2009: maniacal
2017: maniacal

What is your least favorite word?
2009: infested

What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
2009: Music and anything mid century vintage
2017: Music and going through old pictures
