Several of my friends are doing this:

You're Ulysses!

by James Joyce

Most people are convinced that you don't make any sense, but compared
to what else you could say, what you're saying now makes tons of sense. What people do
understand about you is your vulgarity, which has convinced people that you are at once
brilliant and repugnant. Meanwhile you are content to wander around aimlessly, taking in
the sights and sounds of the city. What you see is vast, almost limitless, and brings you
additional fame. When no one is looking, you dream of being a Greek folk hero.

Take the Book Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.

Utterly silly, it seems to me, but on the other hand, yes, I say yes, and again yes...

And I found this one on my own:

You're Ireland!
Mystical and rain-soaked, you remain mysterious to many people, and this makes you intriguing.  You also like a good night at the pub, though many are just as worried that you will blow up the pub as drink your beverage of choice.  You're good with words, remarkably lucky, and know and enjoy at least fifteen ways of eating a potato.  You really don't like snakes.
Take the Country Quiz at the Blue Pyramid

My Ashkenazic ancestors will be so proud.  I'm actually rather a fan of Ireland, especially the literature, the music and the beer.

  • My book turned out To Kill a Monkingbird and I'm also the United Nations!
    • Ken, If I had changed the last question on the country quiz (Do you let people walk all over you?) from sometimes to all the time, I would have been Poland. I cracked up when I saw that.
  • I knew you had a thing for Molly!
  • I got Thailand, together with a slur on my sexual promiscuity! I have no idea which of my answers led them to that conclusion but I assure you it couldn't be further from the truth.

    Silly meme.
    • I got Thailand too -- my theory is that liking spicy food + go with the flow = SLUT!!!

      I'm not the least bit promiscuous either (well, there's that thing with Sirius -- but how does that count? He's fictional and dead!).
      • Quite right. Fictional and dead doesn't count at all. Nor does fictional and cute. ;)
    • Very silly. I agree.
  • But you always make sense! Never got around to Ulysses, but you obviously were quoting it.

    I like the country quiz, but I ended up being Thailand which would have been fine except for the accusation of sexual promiscuity. I went back to try and find Italy, but the closest I got was Vatican City...perhaps Italy isn't an option. If I give up spicy food, but am honest about everything else, I can be Malta, which is pretty cool.
  • I'm the United Nations - ineffectual but my heart's in the right place!
  • Hmmm...I also got the United Nations. I'm not sure how I feel about that, really...although I do appreciate the rather peaceful overtones.

    I took the book quiz as well and, like Ros, I also ended up as Anne Shirley. I took it one more time and altered one of my answers (do you spend your time 'teaching' or 'learning'?) and ended up as Bilbo Baggins in 'The Hobbit'. After two seconds of deliberation I decided that Anne was really more my style--I mean, who doesn't want to be 'bright, chipper, and vivid' over 'short and fury'? LOL
    • Hey, Meredith. Interesting, that Bilbo and Anne are different just by one question -- Anne (of course) teaches, and Bilbo learns. I think of them as very different people, and the books, of course, are as different in style as you can get. Not the world's best quiz, I guess...
