Proust Questionnaire

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on October 19, 2011

On the back page of Vanity Fair is the Proust Questionnaire, a series of questions answered by a celebrity. The quiz was not written by Marcel Proust. He is said to have taken a similar quiz twice, once when he was thirteen, and again at twenty. There were different questions on both occaisons, and the VF application is different from both. The quiz taken by the thirteen year old seems to be the easiest. This will be the basis of today’s feature. Pictures are from The Library of Congress .

As PG was processing this post, a chain email came in. It asked that you send a message to 12 people. It is not certain that 12 people will read this feature. However, as an act of optomism, the following message is sent your way.

QUICK PRAYER Please do not break. Just 27 words – “G-d, our Father, walk through my house and take away All my worries and illnesses and please watch over and heal my Family, Amen.” This prayer is so powerful. Pass this to 12 people Including me. A blessing is coming to you in form of a new Job, a house, marriage, finances, or maybe an answer to Something (a prayer, a request) that you have been waiting For. Do not break or ask questions. Stop what you are doing & send it to 12 people Now. Watch what he does!
