Inside Mr. Ted E. Bear’s Studio

James Lipton, famous for his mad interviewing skills, always asks the same ten questions to every guest on his show Inside the Actor’s Studio (and as I sit on my ass and watch from my leopard couch, I always answer right along). So imagine my delight when last week, my fabulous friend peacelovegreatcountrymusic posted a Daily Prompt (for you non-bloggers, that’s daily ideas to exercise your imagination muscle with writing) to answer the always asked ten questions.

Because I endlessly talk about myself here, I thought it would only be fitting to interview our my favorite feline fur ball, who rules the world of CBXB.

I'm very busy napping.

How dare you disrupt my snooze for an interview.

While I’m sure to pay for the sleep interruption later tonight, here are Teddy’s answers to James Lipton’s questions:

What is your favorite word? Food. DUH.

Most wonderful time of the day.

Most wonderful time of the day.

What is your least favorite word? No. Which is a word I rarely hear.

With a mug like this, all I ever hear is yes. To everything.

What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? Cattails and naps.

No one likes to drink alone.

Getting the creative juices flowing with cattail hour.

Still trying...

Settling down for an emotionally charged nap.

What turns you off? Costumes my mother forces me into on a seasonal basis.

Too cool for shades.

Teddy Thicke is too cool for this shit.

Time for a fiesta!

Cinco de Teddy festivities – where someone almost received a claw to the eye.

What is your favorite curse word? It’s more of a sound. A hiss, combined with a meow moments before trying to attack my mom who inevitably is forcing me do something I don’t want to do.

Ted is reminding me here that he's my main squeeze (in a very subtle, gentle manner - he take after me).

Done posing for your f’ing pictures!

What sound or noise do you love? Tink. (the noise of food hitting my bowl)

I hear tinking!

I hear tinking!

What sound or noise do you hate? The alarm going off in the morning. When I refuse to budge and make my mom wiggle around me like a contortionist, so she doesn’t wake the sleeping Bear.

You want out of this bed? You're going to have to crawl over me.

You want out of this bed? You’re going to have to crawl over me.

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Being that I’m a professional eater, I’d like to try my hand at drinking for a career (I mean, my mom makes it look terribly easy).

Easy peasy.

Easy peasy.

What profession would you not like to do? Hunt. I prefer my food poured into a bowl for me.

Hunt and Gather

Hunting and gathering fail.

proud feline

Tampons don’t taste good.

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? What took you so long? Your mom is waiting over that rainbow bridge to drink with you.

Holy shit!

There’s my Bear! Come to Mama – I have a fabulous angel costume to force you in!

That may be Mr. Bear’s own private kind of hell…

    Have you ever witnessed Teddy hunting at all? No dead birds/rodents at your doorstep?

    • Well, I have witnessed two terrifying scenes – he presented me with a life cardinal while I was soaking in the bathtub one evening years ago (and he isn’t an outdoor cat, so he somehow managed to catch this bird in a screened in porch) AND he once brought me a mouse in bed. At 3am. Then he switched to tampons and all has been well since then!

        Wha!?!?! Well at least you know he loves you. When cats kill stuff or catch stuff and bring it to you it means they are crazy about you right? I have 2 dogs so I’m not really sure where I got this info.

      • Cats have a keen knack for getting into your head, even if you don’t own one, thus you know that felines ‘present’ their owners with stuff they ‘kill’. Only in my case, neither creature was dead….!

Holla at me!
