Inside the Actor’s Studio Questions

I don’t normally photoshop myself on Laura Linney’s body.

I somehow landed on a video of Inside the Actor’s Studio’s James Lipton offering acting advice to Mitt Romney. I’ve never watched this show. I know it exists and I’ve flicked past it a few times with the remote, but after watching a minute of it once I was just a bit bored. Perhaps if I was an actor I might find it interesting to listen to successful people in my chosen profession, but I’m not an actor and so then.

But I clicked on this video and was amused. I also learned that he has these 10 questions he asks everyone. Since when I talk to myself it’s to give myself fake interviews, this happened.

Answering these questions was more difficult than I thought possible.

Slytherin Ambition

You could be great, you know, and Slytherin will help you on the way to greatness, no doubt about that.
—The Sorting Hat to Harry Potter

Years ago when I first became a fan of Harry Potter I took various online quizzes that sorted me into a Hogwarts House.  I thought I’d be a Ravenclaw no question.  I was very surprised then to find myself constantly sorted into Slytherin about 4 out of 5 times.  I started joking that I must be evil then.  But years later I said something in a conversation (about a person and not anything to do with Harry Potter), I said.. “how can he not want more?” It was about life, about ambition, about not settling for what you have and always striving for more, for better, for anything that didn’t mean settling into the same day after day existence. How can you not want more?  As soon as the words came out of my mouth I thought, “oh, I really am a Slytherin.”

My friend from work sent me to Find Your Spot. It’s a website that asks you a series of questions and then determines where you should live. I tried not put answers to get the results I wanted. I mean, I am thinking Northeast but that doesn’t mean that I said “I love snowboarding” or whatever.
