I Got Your Wind Right Here!

What book are you?
I saw this quiz at Lulu's and at Megan's and thought I'd give it a go.




You're Inherit the Wind!

by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee

To you, the learning process is inherently about controversy. If
people aren't having their minds stretched, how could they possibly be learning? This
makes you a good but unpopular teacher, and the people around you are ready to make it
a federal case. All you're asking them to do is evolve a little. But they would like
you to be more creative. You would make an excellent lawyer, even though people think
you love monkeys.

What I want is an on-line quiz that explains to me why I take on-line quizzes.

Berry said...

Great. I'm Kurt Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle. Here are the lies (LIES, I tell you!) the quiz said about me:

You believe quite firmly that free will deserted you long ago and far away. As a result, it's hard to take responsibility for anything. Even though you show great potential as a leader of a small 3rd world country, the choices are all made ahead of time. You're rather fond of games involving string. Your fear of nuclear weaponry is trumped only by your fear of ice.

Whatever. None of it's my fault.

I was the Sound and the Fury. Interesting, it's actually a book I like a lot.

You're Love in the Time of Cholera!
by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Like Odysseus in a work of Homer, you demonstrate undying loyalty by sleeping with as many people as you possibly can. But in your heart you never give consent! This creates a strange quandary of what love really means to you. On the one hand, you've loved the same person your whole life, but on the other, your actions barely speak to this fact. Whatever you do, stick to bottled water. The other stuff could get you killed.

Hmmmmm!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

haha, you lawyer!

I am Catch 22, which pleases me inordinately.

Beth said...

Swwet; I'm Lolita (quite fitting these days):

Considered by most to be depraved and immoral, you are obsessed with sex. What really tantalizes you is that which deviates from societal standards in every way, though you admit that this probably isn't the best and you're not sure what causes this desire. Nonetheless, you've done some pretty nefarious things in your life, and probably gotten caught for them. The names have been changed, but the problems are real. Please stay away from children.

Beth said...

Um ... that should have read Sweet.

And what's wrong with some monkey love?

Jill said...

You monkey lover!!!
To see my result, you'll have to visit my blog!!

Allison said...

I found this quiz quite funny. Apparently I'm Watership Down, and would be "one of the greatest persons alive" if I just stopped talking about talking rabbits.

Right. Best get on that.

blog Portland said...

I'm an issue of US Weekly. Does that mean I'm cheap and shallow?

katie schwartz said...

though I only know you through your blog, potd, seems quite accurate, no? I like it. I'm so taking the quiz. love a good quiz

Angela said...

Hmmm...I got:

Confessions by St. Augustine

You're a sinner, you're a saint, you do not feel ashamed. Well, you might feel a little ashamed of your past, but it did such a good job of teaching you what not to do. Now you've become a devout Christian and have spent more time ruminating on the world to come rather than worldly pleasures. Your realizations and ability to change will bring reverence upon you despite your hedonistic transgressions. Florida will honor you most in the end.

Dale said...

I thought I could read all of you like a book but now I'm not so sure.

Hmm, you might have to make that one up yourself and then post it BD.

Who doesn't love a game with string Berry? Tie me up, tie me down! It's all your fault.

I've never read it CL but I've read you and you've got the sound I like and the occasional fury that keeps things lively.

Your write up is excellent Old Lady. It makes me want to know more.

Glad you ended up as you felt you should BB!

Sex and swwet go together well though Beth you naughty monkey.

If the wind takes me, I'll check it out Jill.

Allison, I'm already tired of you talking about the talking rabbits, can we talk about white rabbits or other musical items?

Yes, but people seem to like you anyway Blog Portland. I think it's your menacing but sexy headgear.

It is strangely me Katie. Maybe I should read the book now? If only I could learn to read, maybe I'd be a real boy.

That Hmmm means at least some of that is true Angela, I'm guessing everything up to devout Christian.

Angela said...

Oh Dale! See, you do know me!

Dale said...

I know what I like!

Mine says:

"You're Watership Down!
by Richard Adams

Though many think of you as a bit young, even childish, you're actually incredibly deep and complex. You show people the need to rethink their assumptions, and confront them on everything from how they think to where they build their houses. You might be one of the greatest people of all time. You'd be recognized as such if you weren't always talking about talking rabbits."

Boy this thing is so wrong. I don't know anything about rabbits.

Writeprocrastinator said...

I'm "Mother Night" and I don't know what to make of that, as the only Vonnegut I've read is "Breakfast of Champions."

Dale said...

From what I know of you X. Dell, from the incredibly deep... all the way to the ...greatest people of all time part, I'd say it's pretty accurate.

I like cereal at night. That doesn't help does it Write Procrastinator?

Writeprocrastinator said...

"I like cereal at night. That doesn't help does it Write Procrastinator?"

But don't all of us who are still children at heart? The title was a play on the "Wheaties" slogan, but it was a reference to a specific libation that skips my mind at the moment. Was it a martini?

Dale said...

Yikes, I can't remember either WP, it's been years since I read it. And I just finished some cereal for lunch. It's not just for breakfast anymore. As we keep saying.

The Gifted Typist said...

My bad, Dale. I got the book link from your blog and forgot to say so in my as you politely did in yours.
I will ammend this situation immediately

I was amazed by the accuracy of this test.

Dale said...

Too kind Gifted Typist, you needn't credit me as I stole it myself. I thought it was fairly accurate too!
