Brooke is a really cool friend of mine, and also a graduate assistant in the English department at Youngstown State University. She's the funniest person I've ever met. Also very sassy, sexy and smart. Last night I read a short story she wrote, which is brilliant. You should go read her blog. It's from Brooke that I get most of these funny character analysis quizzes. Much fun. Here's the latest:

More games:

Romantic movie! You probably won't star in a porno
anytime soon. You seem to be really into the
whole "love" thing...romantic sex
with perfumed sheets and candles all over the
place. You're probably a hopeless romantic. You
value sex and respect your partner too much to
do anything like porn. AWWWWWW! <3

What kind of porno would you star in?

You are a dark writer. A fierce and loyal follower
of Poe and the other gothic authors, you LOVE
to instill a sense of revulsion and somewhat
fear in your readers. You love to poke their
brains with logic dealing with the darker side
of the human mind and character. Truly
surprising and a true individual, you'll do
ANYTHING to create a scene. :)

What's YOUR Writing Style?

I have recently become enamored with the absurdly commercialized singer/rapper/hip hop/reggae artist Sean Paul. What can't the man do?

Speak coherently is the answer to the above question.

Although I love Sean Paul---just love him---I fear my love for him is for the wrong reasons. Namely because I can't understand a word he's saying and I can sing along and make up a ridiculous nonsense lyric song with a great beat each time I listen to him. I don't think Sean Paul would approve of the reasons for my love. But Sean Paul, if you happen upon this (or if anyone out there can supply me with the answer to this question) what the HELL are you saying in your song, "Punkie"? Whatever it is, it works! I start singing the most surreal phrases and baby noises that don't amount to words at all. And it's fun to dance to! Thank you!!

Other than my new musical amour, I've been contemplating my status as Winona Ryder. At first I didn't think this was a correct correlation. I've now decided that it's pretty apt. Or at least everyone I bitch to about it says I have Winona written all over me. Ok, ok, so I secretly harbor an identification with Winona in several of her roles, especially "Girl, Interrupted". I hear she's now doing community service for shop lifting. Poor dear.

Has anyone seen VH1's documentary on the Glove Monster (Ms. Bond's nickname for Michael Jackson)? I am caught between an instinctive compassion I hold for humanity in general, especially misfits, and also a fight or flight response. Should I recoil in fear, or become even more engaged in the spectacle we call Michael, much in the same way we watched "curiousities", freak shows, at carnivals and fairs once upon a time? If you have a chance, watch the VH1 special on him. They're playing it every week, I think. A closer look at the strangeness that appears on the surface, as well as just under the surface, of the Gloved Guru.

I'm afraid I'll never dance to Thriller with the same zest for life I once felt.

I've had lots of things on my mind lately. Lots of new things. Not really bad or good things, just things. But stressful things nonetheless. To distract myself, I have been participating in a lot of these little online tests of character. Here are some, for you own amusement and distraction.

Here's the first one:

What Flavour Are You? I am a subtle taste, like Pine.I am a subtle taste, like Pine.

I am a quiet, fresh taste, almost more of a scent than a flavour. You will be aware of me, but not quite remember me without being reminded. Not that I'm boring; on the contrary, I'm just a little outside the ordinary. What Flavour Are You?
