fun with proust, take one - levi

levi and i have always loved the proust questionnaires found at the back of vanity fair magazine.

we periodically sit down and answer the questions on pieces of paper then read them aloud to each other. it's a fun way to learn new little things about someone that you thought you knew everything about.

so when i saw that this blog did a series featuring the proust questionnaire, i knew i just had to do it over here as well! (be sure to check out femme rationale to see where i got the idea.)

and i'm starting with levi!

levi was instructed to choose his very favorite picture of himself (current, old, abstract, straight forward, alone, in a group - anything goes) and to answer the following 7 questions.

so here we go!

1. what is your perfect idea of happiness?

2. what is your most treasured possession?
my mom's wedding ring

3. what is your greatest fear?
death by octopus

4. which talent would you most like to have?
i think it would be really fun to be a musician. you know one of those guys who can do just about everything...like play 2 different songs on 2 different pianos at the same time.

5. what or who is the greatest love of your life?
jasmine hunter, she's my best friend.

6. what is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
i can be passive aggressive.

7. what do you value most in your friends?
an open heart and an open mind

and here is his favorite photo of himself:

i hope you like the new series! i have a couple other bloggers already lined up to play along, so stay tuned for more fun with proust!
