On lonely Saturdays and Proust

Being bored and lonely and boring and alone and a loner and a simple pathetic young woman who has nothing to do a Saturday night, I was searching on line the Bernard Pivot questions from The Actor’s Studio (one of my favorite shows), but I found an even more interesting: the inspiration, the real deal, the Marcel Proust initial questions on which Pivot base to do his. I’m a purist, so here I go Mr. Proust.
