The Proust Questioniare

Hey y'all!

While I was in New York City filming and visiting some friends over Spring Break, a few of us went inside the beautiful New York Public Library!

It was so gorgeous, and historic! We spent probably close to 2 hours just wandering around, looking at everything! Think about how many movies have been filmed there, I HAD to watch Sex and the City afterward! (Wasn't her wedding there)?!

Anyways, we spent a lot of time in the bookstore, and they had everything! I almost bought "Jane Austen's Guide to Good Manners"! That would make 58 etiquette books, but instead I bought this book I have been wanting FOREVER!

Vanity Fair's Proust Questionnaire.

It has all of these fabulous people's surveys, and it was really fun to read their answers. Annette Bening is my FAVORITE actress, alongside Claire Danes, and duh Kelly Ripa! Her survey was really fun, shes a trip!

Also, Julie Andrews, Ray Charles, Tony Bennett, and so many others made my wait in the airport worth it!

I was so shocked to see that many of the celebrities, including Julie Andrews thought that Chastity, Piousness, and Virginity were the most overrated virtues. LAWD I did not see that coming, oops! I hate to be the last virgin on earth, but you know, that's just how it goes!

Here are a few of my favorite (that I could find) Proust Surveys!

Julie Andrews!
My FAVORITE supastar, Bette Midler!
My favorite News Guru, Katie Couric! Shes practically my hero!
My favorite tennis player, Rafael Nadal!
My favorite "Golden Girl"Betty White!
He won 10 World Series Rings!
My favorite song is "You're So Vein"!
LOVE me some Dustin Hoffman!
Martha Stewart, think SNL Christmas Special! Bahaha!
