Dale Takes The Proust Questionnaire

So. One of my favourite bloggers, David Kanigan, at “Live and Learn” challenged some of us to take the Proust questionnaire. Of course, I put up my hand. While some of these answers would probably change if I had taken more time, the object is to shoot off the first thing that comes to mind. So I followed protocol and didn’t modify a thing, despite David’s offer to do so. I am honest, if nothing else πŸ˜‰

  1. Q,

    I bow to you, because I could never do one of these questionnaires, LOL.

    And I love your ‘last response’ even more with “Right?” because that really is so you!

    As are all these answers to the questions. Very telling and fitting.



  2. …to continue from my comment at Dave’s blog, I also feel a bit of a prier! Probably my own introversion speaking, hence other than adorably clever and brilliant, to my eyes you are brave too! πŸ˜‰ Bless you! [ps Oh, we do have quite a few in common! πŸ˜‰ ] xoxoxo

  3. Note to self: Do not show my innate insincerity to Dale. πŸ™‚
    Amazing answers, showing you’re an okay person. And, as you might guess, I’m kidding of the insincerity. But you said you like to laugh so… written with sincere intent πŸ™‚

  4. Let’s see if this site will let me comment now!

    This is great, but there are no words you over use?

    Vanity Fair used to do something like this at the end of their magazine, a little modified. What did you think?

    • Thank you, Kristine. It’s a helluva journey, lemme tell you (Right. As if I need to tell YOU.) Filled with moments of total insecurity, feeling of failure, bliss, accomplishment. The whole nine yards!
