Celebrity Questions Answered by a Non-Celebrity

For this prompt, we were asked to answer the questions asked by James Lipton on Inside the Actors Studio. Since I worked with him for three years when he directed the Xmas Special of the Bob Hope Show, during which time he never asked any of us any of these questions, I am going to answer the questions here. (I also happened to love Inside the Actor’s Studio during the years when I had TV and could watch it.)

So, here goes.

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    Well, imagine that! You know James Lipton. Certainly never thought that these questions would lead to that information. The blogosphere is a cool place. Neat-o.

    I, of course, agree with you on # 7 & # 8– and on everything else as well. Thanks for linking back to me and coming over to introduce yourself. Glad to know you.

      He would probably not remember me, but when I first saw him on Actors Studio I kept thinking he looked familiar. Then it finally hit that James Lipton was Jim Lipton from the coffee room!!!

      Want to buy some of it? I’m sorting through my house and beginning to divest. Will sell on Facebook. Not selling the house, just gaining space and simplicity.
