In addition to Blogroll Amnesty Day...

It seems everybody's doing this "what book are you" quiz thingy. I like it 'cause there's no tagging:

You're Babar the King!

by Jean de Brunhoff

Though your life has been filled with struggle and sadness of late, you're personally doing quite well for yourself. All this success brings responsibility, though, and should not be taken lightly. Life has turned from war to peace, from damage to reconstruction, and this brings a bright new hope for everyone you know. These hopeful people look to you for guidance, and your best advice to them is to watch out for snakes. You're quite fond of the name "Celeste".

Take the Book Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.


  1. That was fun, but I have to admit there were some questions where my choice of answer was very close, so it could have gone either way.

    You're Jurassic Park!
    by Michael Crichton
    You combine all the elements of a mad scientist, a brash philosopher, a humble researcher, and a money-hungry attracter of tourists. With all these features, you could build something monumental or get chased around by your own demons. Probably both, in fact. A movie based on your life would make millions, and spawn at least two sequels that wouldn't be very good. Be very careful around islands.

    I've neither read the book nor seen the movie, so I can't attest to the survey's accuracy.

    This test is broken, I tell ya!! It says PhysioProf is Watership Down! No way is PhysioProf a book with a fucking bunny rabbit on the cover. No fucking way!

  3. Oh fuck... I'm "David Copperfield" LOLOLOLOLOL I got tears!! :-)

    You're David Copperfield!
    by Charles Dickens
    Coming up from a childhood that felt abusive, you have risen through hard work to gain a place of stature in your life. You've spent altogether too much time in factories and end up misspelling a fair number of words. But in general you are seen as a beacon of hope for others who might not be as fortunate. Lots of people keep mistaking you for a magician and are waiting for you to disappear.

    That misspeling part is spot on!!! LOLOLOLOL *poof* lolol... :D

    Great fun Blue Gal!

  4. Hmm... I seem to be either "The Theory of Justice" or "Jurassic Park", depending on whether I'm reading philosophy or science.

    Though I'll be da(ng)ed if I ever consider Michael Chichton "science"!

    PhysioProf -

    My mom read me Watership Down on road trips when I was small. There's lots of violence and terror in it, if that makes you feel better!

    I got Catch-22 the first time, which was bad enough (I don't even like that book!) but when I retook the test, I got the DICTIONARY. How boring is that?

    Happy B.A.D., sweetie.

  6. You're Adventures of Huckleberry Finn!
    by Mark Twain
    With an affinity for floating down the river, you see things in black and white. The world is strange and new to you and the more you learn about it, the less it makes sense. You probably speak with an accent and others have a hard time understanding you and an even harder time taking you seriously. Nevertheless, your adventurous spirit is admirable. You really like straw hats.

    darn, I wanted to be Babar!

    Celeste and me go over the sea,
    oh here we go ballooning!
    the sky is blue, and I love you,
    and I love honeymooning!

  7. You're Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein

    Most people look at you and think of you as a Martian, even though you were born on Earth. Silly Earthlings, er, people. Anyway, you've been telling people
    about free love and relaxing like it's some radical idea. Most of them want you to go back to the '60's (or Mars), but others are in your groove. Grok on!

    Wow! It's like high school all over again!

  8. You're Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. After stumbling down the wrong turn in life, you've had your mind opened to a number of strange and curious things. As life grows curiouser and curiouser, you have to ask yourself what's real and what's the picture of illusion. Little is coming to your aid in discerning fantasy from fact, but the line between them is so blurry that it's starting not to matter. Be careful around rabbit holes and those who smile to much, and just avoid hat shops altogether.


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
