(Proust?) Questionaire


#1

My inspiration to create a new thread was a questionaire by a popular magazine or internet service submitted to famous people. They were expected to answer the set of the same questions. I’d like to recommmend a similar game in here. Here come the questions. I’m trying not to intrude your private areas. Will you be so kind to answer some? (I will off course think the questions over and give my input as well).

  1. What is your idea of perfect happiness?
  2. What is your greatest fear?
  3. What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
  4. What is the trait you most deplore in others?
  5. Which living person do you most admire?
  6. What is your greatest extravagance?
  7. What is your current state of mind?
  8. What do you consider the most overrated virtue?
  9. On what occasion do you lie?
  10. What do you most dislike about your appearance?
  11. Which living person do you most despise?
  12. Which words or phrases do you most overuse?
  13. When and where were you happiest?
  14. Which talent would you most like to have?
  15. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
  16. If you were to die and come back as a person or a thing, what would it be?
  17. Where would you most like to live?
  18. What is your most marked characteristic?
  19. Who are your favorite writers?

  1. What is your idea of perfect happiness?
    When everyone can come together and start loving one another, rather than hating each other

Not sure

My own mind

See number 1

Ariel Bloomer

None

Not as good as it could/should be

Undecided

Usually when I’m going to get in trouble (even though that’s no excuse to lie)

I could really care less anymore (but I wish I didn’t have facial hair at least)

No one (not even Trump or Bieber)

Too many

Probably 2017, some parts of last year, still working on this year

To be able to sing

I would only change the bad things that try to drag me down (but there are more than one)

Nothing

Somewhere with lots of snow

My heart

Ariel Bloomer, also going to read Lacey Sturm’s books

Nobody

Jesus

Too many to write

When life leaves us blind, love keeps us kind
