Riding with Kanome Jones

We asked EL Stories X cast member Kanome Jones to take the famous Pivot questionnaire.  Join her aboard our train every Saturday night at 11 p.m. through June 22nd.  Tickets at http://www.greenhousetheater.org/index.php/el-stories

1. What is your favorite word? Fascinating.
2. What is your least favorite word? A tie between kumquat and cornucopia.
3. What turns you on?
Intelligence.
4. What turns you off?
Stupidity (which is different than ignorance).
5. What sound or noise do you love?
Rain falling against my window.
6. What sound or noise do you hate?
That ugly high-pitched noise like nails on a chalkboard type of thing or when someone is rubbing against a squeaky surface... ugh, gross.
7. What is your favorite curse word?
Freakin' jellyfish! (That is among my favorite of the many phrases I put to together to create the same tone as curse words... 'cause I just don't curse well.)
8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
A high-ranking intelligence operative (CIA, FBI, whatevs). Essentially, me telling other people the best way to do their jobs so that I can do my job the best and we make good things happen.
9. What profession would you not like to do?
Be an accountant.
10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
