Getting to know the crew:
In one word how would you best friend describe you?
Well only one responded when I texted them – Extraordinary. But to keep it real, if you asked my boyfriend he would say “Intense” with a furrowed brow. Ha!
What is your favourite word?
Onomatopoeia is great. It has lots of syllables, awesome spelling and words that sound like themselves have an intrinsic kind of synergy between sound, movement (action) and meaning. Eg. WHOOSH! There is a certain velocity and sound that immediately tells you what the word means.
What is your least favourite word?
Moist – right (nodding)?!! I think there is a “I hate the word “moist” Facebook group! Its kind of an onomatopoeia – oh no!
