Human Desire and Suffering

The following questionnaire was created by French novelist Marcel Proust. Apparently my answers reveal something about my human desire and suffering, though unfortunately I don't have the key so I can't tell you more then that.

1. What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
Sinus infection is pretty bleak. Having to pay the city $1000 on a dime is also rather miserable.

2. Where would you like to live?
A top the Eiffel tower, in a cabin by the water or in the villa Liv Tyler's character visits in the movie Stealing Beauty.

Waterproof books for reading in the bathtub, daily massages, a weekly visit from a maid and a world without mosquitoes.

4. What is your favorite extravagance?
