Proust's Questionnaire


(borrowed this questionaire from this blog I found, I even steal from people I don't know, how kind I am!)

  • What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?

Mourning the loss of a loved one

  • Where would you like to live?

In a comfortable place that we can afford to live without stress of finance. I don't really mind where that place is.

  • What is your idea of earthly happiness?

Love, family, friendship, laughter, and serenity.

  • To which faults do you feel most indulgent?

Laziness, Self Deprecation.

  • Who are your favorite heroes of fiction?

Charlie Brown, Marcus from About a Boy, James Bond, Mr. Miyagi.

  • Who are your favorite heroines of fiction?

Wonder Woman, Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, The Girl with the Pearl Earring, can you tell I don't read much?

  • Who are your favorite characters in history?

Rosa Parks, John Lennon, Maya Angelou, Mother Theresa, JFK, Marilyn Monroe, Edgar Alan Poe.

  • Who are your favorite heroes in real life?

My mom, both of my Grandma's, and mostly anyone who is strong of heart.

  • Your favorite painter? (examples in parentheses)

Frederic Lord Leighton (Flaming June), Edward Martinez (Black dress), Dali (Papillion), John Waterhouse (Soul of the Rose)

  • Your favorite composer?
The composer of Chopsticks

""Would you believe a 16-year-old girl wrote it in 1877? Euphonia Allen wrote "Chopsticks" and published it under the name Arthur de Lulli. It was the only song she ever wrote (if you could call it a song).

By the way, just because I know you'll ask...the song has nothing to do with the Asian eating utensils. The sheet music instructions told the pianist to "play with both hands turned sideways, the little fingers lowest, so that the movements of the hands imitates the chopping from which this waltz gets its name."

No doubt, piano enthusiasts everywhere are forever grateful for this fine piece of work""
