366 Days of Gratitude and Good Things: Day 43

This is, in general, way too early for me to be feeling this sleepy. Nonetheless, sleepy I am, and therefore lengthy blogging you will not get.  😉  But I’ll give you a preview: one of my friends took the Proust Questionnaire today (apparently David Bowie, Birthday Boy, took it as well and has been inspiring others to take the leap).

Not that Proust wrote the questions. He only answered them. It appears to have been sufficient impetus to keep said questionnaire around.

Prior to today, the only ongoing questionnaire I knew of is the one James Lipton uses at the end of “Inside the Actor’s Studio” — and he slightly modified a one used by French journalist/interviewer Bernard Pivot, who at least occasionally credited the Proust Questionnaire for the idea, although Pivot’s version was rather shorter.

Confused? You won’t be after today’s episode of “Soap”!

Um. Sorry. Betting most of you won’t get that reference.

At any rate, being sleepy is no condition in which to tackle even a short questionnaire, so that’s put off until tomorrow. Feel free to entertain yourselves trying to figure out which questionnaire I’m going to do. And in the meantime, know that today I’m grateful it was the end of the work week, and a remarkably “untroubled” day (in accounting terms, anyway), and payday, and a 96-hour payday at that, and I can set my alarm for nearly three hours later than usual and still have a good shot at being first in line for the washer and dryer.  🙂

  1. Set the alarm 3 hours later? What about the cats? They’ll starve won’t they?

    Heavens, no–they just staple me to the bed with chilly-morning kitty cuddles. 🙂
