Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

Fame or Shame (and Barry Lyndon)
I found via Facebook this quiz created in the honour of Barry Lyndon, one of Stanley Kubrick's masterpieces, which is apparently back in cinema. The quiz is called Fame or Shame: how would you fare as an 18th century adventurer? Apparently, I would be a Drifter: "An opportunist and optimist, you're always looking for ways to improve
yourself and don't mind taking a few shortcuts on the way. When fate
knocks you down you get back up again, certain you'll reach the top in
the end."If you have seen the movie, you know I would on the long run end up in a better position than Redmond Barry. It is a pretty accurate description of what I would be, albeit don't think I am an optimistic. In any case, it made me want to watch the movie again.
