adam, u can fall in love with me now

memes are gay, but.

You're Pale Fire!
by Vladimir Nabokov

You're really into poetry and the interpretation thereof. Along the road of life, you have had several identity crises which make it very unclear who you are, let alone how to interpret poetry. You probably came from a foreign country, but then again you seem foreign to everyone in ways unrelated to immigration. Most people think you're quite funny, but maybe you're just sick. Talking to you ends up being much like playing a round of the popular board game Clue.

Take the Book Quiz at the Blue Pyramid.

I got as far as "Odds or Evens?" and said fuxit.

oh good lord teho, you can watch 7 straight hours of hobbits hobbiting but you can't make it though a 10-question quiz?? that's pathetic, even on a friday.

kath, that's very good. beckett, in all his craggy wonder, is to die for.

Theo said...

Yeah... very little patience for questions like that. And the answer to question#1 truly was "it depends" but of course multiple-choice doesn't allow for that.

So: Scruncher or folder? And please do try to answer thoughtfully and carefully, as this will sum up your entire personality...

OK, here's a better answer. Firstly I must assert that internet memes aren't gay (except the gay ones). How awful could a "Book Quiz" be, though? There's a godawful lot of books out there; maybe they've got the entire Library of Congress indexed into this thing. All righty here I go.

Are you long-winded or concise? -- wait wait wait. It depends! What are we talking about? Have I just had lunch? Do you smell?
Odds or evens? -- [long pause] pardon me, but are you a fucking moron?
Are you a child at heart? -- aha, this one I can almost answer with the requisite Yes or No! I'll go with "yes" here.
Do you know where you're going? -- right, pretty clearly lightspeed nowhere... which I suppose is another "Yes".
Do you spend more time teaching or learning? -- Learning. Usually.
Are you confident? -- so here we have the answer to my "fucking moron" question.

That's six questions, not even ten, and what does it spit out? I'm Anne of Green Goddamn Gables. Now, when this came on PBS, it's true that I had a bit of a crush on Megan Follows, the nifty Canadian actress who played Anne. Smart and cute definitely works for me, and it's not the point. Very obviously this is not the Book Of Theo, at least not today.

Memes can kiss my sedentary corporate ass.

I am The Poisonwood Bible

by Barbara Kingsolver

Deeply rooted in a religious background, you have since become both
isolated and schizophrenic. You were naively sure that your actions would help people,
but of course they were resistant to your message and ultimately disaster ensued. Since
you can see so many sides of the same issue, you are both wise beyond your years and
tied to worthless perspectives. If you were a type of waffle, it would be Belgian.

Well, I always knew I was toast.

finn said...

subh, your results are obviously inaccurate. tied to worthless perspectives? come.on.

on the other hand, teho yours are spot on. anne of green goddamn gables. oh, i'll chortle over that all weekend.

well ok finn you sucked me in and here is what happened:

"To you, most everything is a game. It's summertime, and the living's
easy. Even when there's a war on, it's just a game to you. But even though you've
historically been able to meet every challenge, there are some doubts about what lies
ahead. Are you sure you're up to the next test? Don't forget to pay attention to your


are you well?

and of course I love nabokov and have that copy of pale fire.
