What is your idea of perfect happiness?Unmade bed surrounded by books, writing utensils, and the dog; a plate of demolished toast with butter on my chest; loved ones puttering not too close but not too far.
What is your greatest extravagance? I’m quite frugal, but my dog has a whole staff.
Which living person do you most despise? That bitch knows who she is.
What is your motto? (Shrugs) “I didn’t ask to be born.”

Joan Rivers Takes the Proust Questionnaire, February 1997
Where would you like to live? Eighteenth-century France, but with plumbing and plastic surgery.
How would you like to die? Coming offstage after a five-minute standing ovation, falling into the arms of my lover, and having the doctor look at me and say, “This is impossible! She looks much too young to go!”
If you were to die and come back as a person or thing, what do you think it would be? Something small, like a flower … or an autumn leaf … or Jackie Chan.
What is your motto? I have two. The first is “Get on with it.” The second is “Don’t eat anything you pick up off the sidewalk.”
