Vanity Fair Proust questionnaire

At the end of every magazine, Vanity Fair ask a celebrity to complete the Proust questionnaire. Here are my answers (they may change if you ask me this again tomorrow):

1. What is your idea of perfect happiness – a family meal.

2. What is your greatest fear – something happening to my family.

3. Which historical figure do you most identify with – Virginia Woolf

4. Which living person do you most admire – for chutzpa, Hillary Rodham Clinton, go girl. Go all the way.

5. What is the trait you deplore most in yourself – impatience.

6. What is the trait you most deplore in others – ignorance, shown in sexism, racism, homophobia, or just being plain ol’ ignorant.

7. What is your greatest extravagance – books and wine.

8. On what occasion do you lie – when I weigh myself.

9. What do you dislike about your appearance – how long have you got?

10. When and where were you happiest – when my baby son slept on my chest or a pub in Brussels.

11. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be – probably best for someone else to answer this question, but I’d to quit my iPhone habit.

12. If you could change one thing about your family what would it be – I’d like to be living closer to everyone.

13. What is your greatest achievement – my son.

14. If you died and came back as a person or thing what do you think it would be – a cat, I want to catch up on the sleep I’ve missed over the past three years.

15. What is your most treasured possession – I try to not associate too deeply with possessions, but Dumbo probably.

16. What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery – reality TV. I dream of being able to read and watch the news without it again.

17. Who are your heroes in real life – always, Hanno’s Mum, today Ian Thorpe.

18. What is it that you most dislike – I’m fairly easy going, but bad manners pi$$es me off more than you can possibly know.

19. How would you like to die – in my sleep. Nice and peacefully thanks.

20. What is your motto – When people show you who they are, believe them the first time. Maya Angelou
