This either describes me or who I want to be- I can't figure out which.

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.

Oh dear. This was only the top school on my list for all of high school, before I changed my mind at the last minute. Maybe it would have been a better school for me... I'll never really know, I guess, but I plan to go here for grad school eventually. Oh, ignore the description, that so isn't me.

You're Georgetown University!

A bit of a lapsed Catholic, you still pay lip service to the faith,
depending on who you're talking to. At the same time, you're more interested in
politics than religion and can't help but be swept away by patriotism from time
to time. While you aren't that soft-spoken, you still seem like a good candidate
for diplomacy. Though you love bulldogs, you'd never admit that that's what
they're called.

Take the University Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.


  1. Hey, for the college thing, no, you belong at Notre Dame, it's just completely set up against you for us...

    Your name has to start with a letter from the second half of the alphabet, you have to prefer the phrase "Best of the Rest," apparently "the naming of names" is more important than "location location location," you have to seem foreign to others, you have to be Catholic (naturally :-P), apparently English imperialism affected you more than Spanish imperialism, and of course, you have to feel okay about fightin'.

    And then we get a really crappy representation:

    While you admire France and its religious leadership, you've had to settle for being stuck in the American Midwest. You've tried to recreate the beauty of France in your life, but then when you walk outside, you realize how short of this you are. This frustration has led you to take out your anger on various fields, with startling success at intimidating your opponents. People keep mispronouncing your name to make you sound like a woman from a 1930's gangster flick.

    Oh, how wrong they are...

    And yes, I seriously took the time to go through there and find us... it took some time...


  2. And oh, one more thing about that university quiz... it's extremely depressing, when I took it, I ended up with Michigan... :-(

    Yeah, it's way off.

  3. About that school one --

    um. yeah.

    I'm staying quiet.

  4. Joseph, what the CRAP are you doing up at 5 AM?!

    Greg- yeah yeah yeah. I don't like you because you managed to avoid seeing me yesterday. Don't try the sick child excuse.

  5. But one of our kids I was...

    Man. I got nothin'.

    Welcome home. I didn't realize you were actually back. Does that make you feel better? :)

  6. Grudgingly better, I suppose.
    Harrumph and bah humbug, etc.

  7. Though many think of you as a bit young, even childish, you're actually incredibly deep and complex. You show people the need to rethink their assumptions, and confront them on everything from how they think to where they build their houses. You might be one of the greatest people of all time. You'd be recognized as such if you weren't always talking about talking rabbits.

    Um, I don't always talk about rabbits! I might have mentioned them in my last post though...

  8. Michelle, what book were you? And I would take your description- "might be one of the greatest people of all time"? Nothing like a good ego boost.
