Proust Questionnaire – Part I

So, I was cruising around the blogosphere and found this post with a reference to the Proust questionnaire. A funny twist from the agent perspective.

After a bit of sleuthing I found the origin of this reference, it was a parlor game that Proust famously participated in, and a list of the questions at Vanity Fair.

It seems like a fun, blogging thing to do. So, here we go with the first five:

1. What is your idea of perfect happiness?
My perfect happiness is dwelling in possibility. This can be one minute, one hour or even an entire day. My husband and I spent a day in Venice that was just beautiful, bordering on magic – art, music, love, good food and wine. That is what I remember when I think of perfect happiness. In a smaller slice, last year my husband, our son and I all fell asleep on the beach while the Gulf waves lapped the shore.

2. What is your greatest fear?
Snakes. Something bad happening to those I love.

3. What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
Self-doubt, and issues of self-confidence. Social awkwardness.

4. What is the trait you most deplore in others?

5. Which living person do you most admire?
My husband. He is brilliant, kind and generous.

I will do some more questions next week. Maybe I should pick up Remembrance of Things Past again too.
