Work work work

I like quiz's, and always got extreamly competitive in the pub quiz's when living in the uk. They where a blast. Interestingly enough the word itself originated from Dublin. The story goes that a Dublin theatre proprietor by the name of Richard Daly made a bet that he could, within forty-eight hours, make a nonsense word known throughout the city, and that the public would give a meaning to it. After the performance one evening, he gave his staff cards with the word 'quiz' written on them, and told them to write the word on walls around the city. The next day the strange word was the talk of the town, and within a short time it had become part of the language. The word is nevertheless hard to account for, and so is its later meaning of 'to question, to interrogate', which emerged in the mid-19th century and gave rise to the most common use of the term today, for an entertainment based on questions and answers.So today , being pissed off with work and not wanting to do anything too taxing just clicked away on Blogthings. Now my antlers hurt or is it my purple brain? I think I need a holiday in Rome but in the year 1966, I dont know who to contact first, my travel agent or doctor?? Maybe I should just consult the paper for a new job..
Your Brain is Purple

Of all the brain types, yours is the most idealistic.
You tend to think wild, amazing thoughts. Your dreams and fantasies are intense.
Your thoughts are creative, inventive, and without boundaries.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking of fictional people and places - or a very different life for yourself.




You Were a Deer



Graceful and gentle, you appreciate beauty and balance.

A giving soul, you are able to sacrifice for the greater good.


You Belong in 1966

1960 - 1969: You are a free spirit with a huge heart. Love, peace, sex and happiness rule - oh, and drugs too.

Your Values Profile



Loyalty:



You value loyalty highly.

You're completely devoted to your friends and family.

Even if they totally screw up, you're still there for them.

Just make sure they're equally loyal to you!



Honesty:



You value honesty a fair amount.

You're honest when you can be, but you aren't a stickler for it.

If a little white lie will make a situation more comfortable, you'll go for it.

In the end, you mostly care about "situational integrity."



Generosity:



You value generosity highly.

So much so that you often put your own needs last.

There's nothing wrong with having a caring heart...

But you may want to rethink your "open wallet" policy.



Humility:



You value humility highly.

You have the self-confidence to be happy with who you are.

And you don't need to seek praise to make yourself feel better.

You're very modest, and you're keep the drama factor low.



Tolerance:



You value tolerance a fair amount.

You are open to new cultures, beliefs, and ideas.

You have very few prejudices that you're aware of.

And while you are tolerant, you do stand true to what you believe.


You Should Get An All Over Tattoo

Outrageous and funky
Because you should never have to choose just one tattoo

You Are 24% Gross

You're a tad gross, but generally you're a clean, hygienic person.
No one can be perfectly clean all the time, and it's better to be human than a neat freak.

Your EQ is 147

50 or less: Thanks for answering honestly. Now get yourself a shrink, quick!
51-70: When it comes to understanding human emotions, you'd have better luck understanding Chinese.
71-90: You've got more emotional intelligence than the average frat boy. Barely.
91-110: You're average. It's easy to predict how you'll react to things. But anyone could have guessed that.
111-130: You usually have it going on emotionally, but roadblocks tend to land you on your butt.
131-150: You are remarkable when it comes to relating with others. Only the biggest losers get under your skin.
150+: Two possibilities - you've either out "Dr. Phil-ed" Dr. Phil... or you're a dirty liar.

I have a blue brain, an abstract tatoo (I did actually desing my own), My EQ is 127, I am 30% gross, I was a horse, I belong in 1960 and I don't really value loyalty; I value honesty a fair amount; I value generosity highly; I value humility a fair amount and I value tolerance highly.

Whew. You took a few quizes eh? I always (since blogging with you) knew you were cool.

purple brain, 1967, eagle, some stuff including "i don't value honesty" (?), asian-inspired tattoo (NEVER!), 80% gross (i knew this), EQ = 120. You are obviously way more cool than i am!

Crankster said...

Okay, got 127 on the EQ, which seems reasonable, given the fact that I'm a guy. As far as the gross one--well, let's just say that it seems a little judgmental!

And, by the way, how did I end up as a 1950 kind of guy?
