A Proust Questionnaire, answered by a famous person, is always on the last page of Vanity Fair magazine. As Vanity Fair describes it, “The questionnaire has its origins in a parlor game popularized (though not devised) by Marcel Proust (1871 – 1922), the French essayist and novelist, who believed that, in answering these questions, an individual reveals his or her true nature.”
Whenever I’ve read the questionnaire, I’ve thought, “I hope no one ever asks me to do this.” Nevertheless, when gorgeous blogger Nina of Femme Rationale asked me to do the questionnaire, I immediately agreed. I was hypnotized by her shiny, shiny hair and overall beauty. Look.
Look DEEP into the hair.
You will do what Nina tells you to.
You will also listen to her sisters, Pinta and Santa Maria.
Because I could not resist the charms of Nina, you can read my Proust Questionnaire here. I hope I live up to Karl Rove’s high standards for questionnaire answering. I also hope I didn’t reveal my true nature. Best as I can remember, I threw that shit in a box and left it in my parents’ basement years ago. If it got out, it must be wreaking havoc upon the world.
