Proust Questionnaire

–from Wikipedia
After Ennyman posted his list of 25 Random Things About Ed Newman, I decided that it was time for me to do some sort of list, too. So many questionnaires are going around on Facebook such as 25 Random Things About Me, The Name Game, etc. that I decided to do one of the originals, the Proust Questionnaire. Vanity Fair magazine still does one every month featuring celebrities.
