Proust Questionnaire

I have been feeling under the weather lately, so that means my time has been spent watching Modern Family and drinking a lot of tea. I decided to go through our apartment to see if there was anything I wanted to donate to Goodwill, or sell in my ebay store. I was successful in finding items for both, but I also came across the book Influence where I first discovered the Proust Questionnaire. I filled it out a few years ago, but I feel like it's important to answer the questions again every few years.
