French writer Marcel Proust made these questions famous at the end of the nineteenth century when he recorded his answers in his diary, “An Album to Record Thoughts, Feelings, etc.”

Known as the Proust Questionnaire, the following questions are selections from his original quiz. Today, La Divina takes time to answer a few for us.

1. What is your greatest extravagance?

I have an addiction to European lingerie and shoes. I have spent a small fortune on both.

2. Which talent would you most like to have?

I want to have the really creative designing trait. It would really come in handy for costume production. I also wished I was much better at my sewing machine. It’s old but it’s got potential.

3. What do you consider your greatest achievement?

We have brought our production to the Lakewood Theater, and produced some of the largest and best shows, with arguably the finest talent in the world.

4. What do you most value in your friends?

Loyalty and honesty. I’ve had some really bad friends in the past that did not adhere to the aforementioned traits.

5. Who are your favorite writers?

Right now I am really getting into Jane Austen. I’ve bought 3 of her books in the past 2 weeks. I am getting into the romantic gothic novels.

6. Who is your favorite hero of fiction?

Doraemon! He was one of my favourite childhood cartoons. He’s a Manga cat that had a magic pouch and would pull some very clever gadgets out of it. La Divina needs a Doreamon.

7. What is your motto?

The best revenge is living well.
