RULES: Once you’ve been tagged, you are supposed to answer the ten (10) questions. At the end, choose people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it’s because I want to know more about you.
To do this, go to “notes” under tabs on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, type your answers to the ten (10) questions, tag twenty-five (25) people (in the right hand corner) then click “publish.”
These ten (10) questions originally came from a French series, “Bouillon de Culture” hosted by Bernard Pivot. They’re better known as the questions that James Lipton asks every guest at the end of “Inside the Actor’s Studio.”
