Pathogenic

After I saw Holly's, I had to give it a go:




You're To Kill a Mockingbird!

by Harper Lee

Perceived as a revolutionary and groundbreaking person, you have changed the minds of many people. While questioning the authority around you, you've also taken a significant amount of flack. But you've had the admirable guts to persevere. There's a weird guy in the neighborhood using dubious means to protect you, but you're pretty sure it's worth it in the end. In the end, it remains unclear to you whether finches and mockingbirds get along in real life.


Take the Book Quiz at the Blue Pyramid.

Now I have to find an online quiz that Carter won't be able to resist...

    You're The Great Gatsby!
    by F. Scott Fitzgerald
    Having grown up in immense wealth and privilege, the world is truly at your doorstep. Instead of reveling in this life of luxury, however, you spend most of your time mooning over a failed romance. The object of your affection is all but worthless--a frivolous liar--but it matters not to you. You can paint any image of the past you want and make it seem real. If you were a color of fishing boat light, you would be green.

    I suppose I can look at this metaphorically - I do have a lot of wealth wrapped up in my bookshelves, some of the writing there in is luxurious - but the rest? Hmmm... Does the light colour make me 'port' or 'starboard'?

  2. Somehow I ended up as LOVE IN A TIME OF CHOLERA, which, thanks to a medication I just started taking, isn't very funny now.

    Actually, I always thought I'd be something like FIGHT CLUB or GET SHORTY.

  3. Hmm. I got the dictionary -- and not even the OED!

    Here I was expecting Heart of Darkness . . .

  4. Good Lord - I ended up with ~ Anne of Green Gables, by L.M. Montgomery

    Bright, chipper, vivid, but with the emotional fortitude of cottage cheese, you make quite an impression on everyone you meet. You're impulsive, rash, honest, and probably don't have a great relationship with your parents. People hurt your feelings constantly, but your brazen honestly doesn't exactly treat others with kid gloves. Ultimately, though, you win the hearts and minds of everyone that matters. You spell your name with an E and you want everyone to know about it.

  5. I got One Flew Over the Cookoo's Nest. Sadly, most people probably consider that appropriate.

    /note to self: find out who leaked that I was escaping the insane asylum this week ;).

    Actually, it's funny because I once helped my father with the makeup for the play. At 11 or so, I was able to figure out how to make a realistic cigarette burn that looked really good. Then my parents didn't let me go see the play. They say now that they thought I wouldn't be interested...that wasn't how it came across then :p.

  6. So, I figured out my problem with this quiz. In order to get anything close to making sense, I have to start with concise. I'm not, but the long-winded books don't fit me at all. I mean, me as "Lolita"? I don't think so. When I started with concise, I got "Anne of Green Gables". She's a character I always wanted to be. lol :)

    Starboard, definitely starboard. :)

    Better Love in a Time of Cholera than Portnoy's Complaint, pal.

    I think that's a hallmark of intellect there. And I need to borrow you, Douglas, much more frequently than any other book in my library. :)

    Very apt. Who doesn't love that joyful upstart Anne? :)

    I can't see you taking any crap from a Nurse Ratchet either, Margaret.
