If you've studied your etymologies, you'll know that "sophomore" means
"wise fool." You've got a taste of learning and have memorized a sonnet
or two, may have been become obsessed with an obscure beatnik poet. But
you have a way to go before you can truly call yourself an English
nerd. Bone up on your grammar, study your history of the language, and
keep delving through the canon. Soon enough you'll be ready for Paul de
My test tracked 1 variable How you compared to other people your age and gender:
I like to take silly online quizzes. There's a reason though, I use them as my "Too Pooped to Post" posts as I endeavor to continue with Blog 365: Blogging for one full lap around the sun.
While I know I save too much stuff (ephemera, for those of you with broad vocabularies and detritus, for those of you who only speak the truth), it really bugged me that a stupid quiz could hit on the truth:
You're a Pack Rat in Training
You know those crazy old people with a ton of video tapes and cats?
Well, you're training to be one. Time to do some spring cleaning. Even if it isn't spring!
I'm really (no, really, I am!) trying to avoid living in Collier's Mansion and in an effort to keep one little corner of my world tidy, I decided to clean up my Flickr account. I know it's nothing, but (hey! quit snorting!) it was a baby step.
Well, let me tell you what: I know why those Collier brothers did what they did. They knew that the moment something is thrown away, your heart beats two times and then you need it! When I went onto Ravelry to visually fondle my yarn and admire the fruit of the past two days' labor, this is what I saw:
I hadn't read the mouse print that said that Ravelry linked to Flickr. While, perhaps, it should have occurred to me, it didn't and here I sat watching my pictures disappear with every refresh of the screen. Fortunately, I hadn't yet fully deleted my pictures from iPhoto and when I took the pictures, I made it a point to have the label to show so all is not lost.
Now it's time to sort though this mess, get back on track and change my mailing addresss to c/o Collier's Mansion.
You scored Alice! You are kind-hearted and curious and give yourself very good advice, but seldom follow it, which leads you into trouble. You always try to be courteous and polite, but you become cross when people speak in nonsense to you and scold them sharply.
G-d met her at the gates and said, "You have been a good cat all these years. Anything you want is yours for the asking."
The cat thought for a minute and then said, "All my life I lived on a farm and slept on hard wooden floors. I would like a real fluffy pillow to sleep on."
G-d said, "Say no more." Instantly the cat had a huge fluffy pillow.
A few days later, six mice were killed in an accident and they all went to Heaven together. G-d met the mice at the gates with the same offer that He made to the cat
The mice said, "Well, we have had to run all of our lives: from cats, dogs, and even people with brooms! If we could just have some little roller skates, we would not have to run again."
G-d answered, "It is done." All the mice had beautiful little roller skates.
About a week later, G-d decided to check on the cat. He found her sound asleep on her fluffy pillow. G-d gently awakened the cat and asked, "Is everything okay? How have you been doing? Are you happy?"
The cat replied, "Oh, it is WONDERFUL. I have never been so happy in my life. The pillow is so fluffy, and those little Meals on Wheels you have been sending over are delicious!"
You are breakfasty, like a pile of pancakes on a Sunday morning that
have just the right amount of syrup, so every bite is sweet perfection
and not a soppy mess. You are a glass of orange juice that's cool,
refreshing, and not overly pulpy. You are the time of day that's just
right for turning the pages of a newspaper, flipping through channels,
or clicking around online to get a sense of how the world changed
during the night. You don't want to stumble sleepily through life, so
you make a real effort to wake your brain up and get it thinking. You
feel inspired to accomplish things (whether it's checking something off
your to-do list or changing the world), but there's plenty of time for
making things happen later in the day. First, pancakes.
Of all the brain types, yours has the most balance.
You are able to see all sides to most problems and are a good problem solver.
You need time to work out your thoughts, but you don't get stuck in bad thinking patterns.
You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about the future, philosophy, and relationships (both personal and intellectual).
