And the Geek Goes On...

There's just something about me, baby, so right....

(Penny for anyone who can name that band-- except you, Kory.)

I've been collecting funky little quizzes that purport to tell all about me. For example, which Happy Bunny am I? cute but psycho
You are the cute but psycho happy bunny. You're
adorable, but a little out there. It's all right,
you might not have it all, but it could be worse.

which happy bunny are you?

And yes, I did edit that; dear heavens, does no one pay attention in school anymore? (What am I saying?)

You'll understand more about that little quirk of mine when you discover what obsolete skill I am.

Songs of Innocence, Introduction
You are 'regularly metric verse'. This can take
many forms, including heroic couplets, blank
verse, and other iambic pentameters, for
example. It has not been used much since the
nineteenth century; modern poets tend to prefer
rhyme without meter, or even poetry with
neither rhyme nor meter.

You appreciate the beautiful things in life--the
joy of music, the color of leaves falling, the
rhythm of a heartbeat. You see life itself as
a series of little poems. The result (or is it
the cause?) is that you are pensive and often
melancholy. You enjoy the company of other
people, but they find you unexcitable and
depressing. Your problem is that regularly
metric verse has been obsolete for a long time.

What obsolete skill are you?

Which only figures, really. Am I the only person who writes old-school poetry anymore? Sheesh. My Bloginality is INTJ. In case you couldn't tell, I really am an INTJ, 'cause blogging is life, dontcha know.

And (almost) finally, I couldn't resist this little meme, courtesy of
Geeky Mom:
Bold the states you've been to, underline the states you've lived in, and italicize the state you're in now...

Alabama / Alaska / Arizona / Arkansas / California / Colorado / Connecticut / Delaware / Florida / Georgia / Hawaii / Idaho / Illinois / Indiana / Iowa / Kansas / Kentucky / Louisiana / Maine / Maryland / Massachusetts / Michigan / Minnesota / Mississippi / Missouri / Montana / Nebraska / Nevada / New Hampshire / New Jersey / New Mexico / New York / North Carolina / North Dakota / Ohio / Oklahoma / Oregon / Pennsylvania / Rhode Island / South Carolina / South Dakota / Tennessee / Texas / Utah / Vermont / Virginia / Washington / West Virginia / Wisconsin / Wyoming / Washington D.C /

HERE to have a form generate the HTML for you.
They didn't ask for a list of countries, but mine would look something like this:
Austria / Belgium / Czechoslovakia / England / France / Germany / Holland / Liechtenstein / Luxembourg / Mexico / Scotland

And one LAST (I swear) proof that I'm unbearable:

I am nerdier than 92% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!

I'm still thinking on the "Ten Things I've Done That You Haven't" meme. Will post later. (How much later can you get than midnight? Oh shut up.)

And you know what? That song would still sound a lot like all the other stuff on the radio today! Scary, no?

I'm going to have to rip that "where you have been" thing and get it on my own weblog. Thanks for saving me some trouble, Spymaster S!

I only scored an 86, but I rather like my level of nerdiness. Not so much as to own my very own Vulcan ears, not so little that a scale model of the Millennium Falcon wouldn't evoke a little tear.

No problem, Kory. "Round, round, get around, I get around..."

Tom will probably post about this later, Shan, but he scored a 95: Supreme Nerd God. Shoulda figured. 'Course, you probably get 50 points just for taking the test, 'cause who but a nerd would do that?
