Contagious Quiz Mania Continues

It’s not just me. When I checked out Dive’s blog this morning, my initial thought was that I’d created a monster. After I took my dating persona quiz two nights ago, I became obsessed with quiz taking. Last night I took a celebrity quiz (I am apparently like Susan Sarandon), a Sesame Street quiz (I am like Kermit the Frog), a quiz on commonly misused words (I aced it), and a host of other quizzes that I only vaguely remember. I stayed up too late; I felt guilty for wasting all that time.

The guilt was only compounded when I saw that Dive, too, has been taking online quizzes. Oh shit, I thought, I owe him an apology and a link to a 12-step quiz program (you get to take a quiz to find out if you are addicted).

But wait! Who did he ruefully thank for this latest time sucker? He didn’t thank me. He thanked Old Knudsen. I then checked out Old Knudsen’s blog to see if I’d somehow gotten him addicted and that he’d gone and gotten Dive addicted (thereby making my time suckage bad karma much worse than I thought). I held my breath and read.


It wasn’t me. Knudsen got the idea from someone else.

Apparently this quiz-taking obsession is just in the air. Rather like this cold I have that my friend in Memphis, Tennessee, also has—we haven’t seen each other in months, and so we couldn’t possibly have given it to each other. It’s just one of those things.

Greatly relieved and now treating the quizzing thing more like a cold than an addiction, I reached for my tissues and took this new quiz. I’m feeling rather smug about catching a typo in the text. I am this kind of Tarot card (note the secret theme?):

You are The High Priestess

Science, Wisdom, Knowledge, Education.

The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information that she might, or might not reveal to you. The moon crown on her head as well as the crescent by her foot indicates her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know. The High Priestess is also associated with the moon however and can also indicate change or fluctuation, particularly when it comes to your moods.

  1. Keeper of secret knowledge?
    And a “dirty little secret” in your last quiz post?
    Is there something you’re not telling us, Sassy?

    And this quiz thang IS all your fault. If you check your comments from the lurve quiz, you’ll see you got the Old Man at it back then.

  2. Nope. Not guilty. I know the secret.

  3. Ok, I gave in. I am the following:

    You are The Lovers

    Motive, power, and action, arising from Inspiration and Impulse.

    The Lovers represents intuition and inspiration.

  4. Oooh… Bet that makes up for the brutal.

  5. It does make up for the brutal remark, although sometimes love and power and action and brutality go hand in hand. Life is a complicated soup.

    Hey, that sounds like a book title. Somebody ought to write that.

  6. Complicated Soup for the Brutal Soul?

  7. HA!! That’s great. Eat’s Soup and Leaves

    Mine is not quite as funny as yours, I guess.

  8. Hee hee. I love that Truss woman.

  9. Long ago, they gave Lynn Truss the job of sports correspondent at The Times, (probably as punishment for some editorial infraction).
    She hates sports and knows fat all about them, so she wrote the most hilarious pieces on how crap and venal everything was (and lots about her cat, which I loved).
    They soon put a stop to that and her career never looked back.

  10. Oh that’s funny. Kitty’s Googlies? (Is that how you spell that cricket toss? throw? bowl?)

  11. Wow. You know more about cricket than Lynn did!

  12. Secret knowledge, Dive. Secret knowledge.

  13. Hee hee, High Priestess.

  14. You are the World
    Completion, Good Reward.

    The World is the final card of the Major Arcana, and as such represents saturnian energies, time, and completion.

    The World card pictures a dancer in a Yoni (sometimes made of laurel leaves). The Yoni symbolizes the great Mother, the cervix through which everything is born, and also the doorway to the next life after death. It is indicative of a complete circle. Everything is finally coming together, successfully and at last. You will get that Ph.D. you’ve been working for years to complete, graduate at long last, marry after a long engagement, or finish that huge project. This card is not for little ends, but for big ones, important ones, ones that come with well earned cheers and acknowledgements. Your hard work, knowledge, wisdom, patience, etc, will absolutely pay-off; you’ve done everything right.

    What…”The Yoni symbolizes the great Mother” ok I admit I have been called a mother before but there were always 6 letters after it! Holy Crap I hope this is true… I can wait for me time!!!

  15. More power to you, Yetta.

  16. Yetta I am not sure I want anymore power than this survey gives me for Chrips sake I am the freakn cervix of the universe you can’t have much more power than that… geeze the responsibility.. I need some wine! Good thing it’s a NO KIDS weekend!

  17. Yetta has an interesting superpower.
