Blog Reader Appreciation Series Part 11: The One with All the Answers

When I'm home, I like to be home.  I love meeting my friends for dinner or drinks but my main objective is to spend as much time as I can with my family in the house that I spent the first 18 years of my life.

When my dad is home (and awake), that means a lot of time watching football.  But once my dad has inevitably fallen asleep on the living room chair (or when, God forbid, there's no football on), things start taking a turn.

One road that I find our family on way too often is the one that leads to my mom, sister, and me sitting on the couch, taking online quizzes.  You know, the ones that enlighten you on the complex inner truths of your personality based on your favorite color.

These quizzes have helped me discover who I truly am (for example, I now know that my animal soulmate is a "cute owl") so I would feel guilty not sharing them with those who aren't in our living room on Thursday nights.  So this one, this is for all of you.


No matter what you're hoping to learn about yourself, I've got you covered.  So grab a cup of tea and remember: if the internet says that you're an owl, you're a cute baby owl.  No use trying to fight it.

This one totally nailed my dad's Baltimorian accent.  However, it also told my mom (from Colorado) that she was from Albuquerque.  And evidently I am simultaneously from Providence, New Jersey, and San Francisco.

And all this time I thought I was from Maryland.

What does the way you speak say about where you’re from?

This one lets you know the animal most representative of your Myers-Briggs personality type.  I give it 5 stars for accuracy; I always suspected I was raised by wolves.

Derrick, on the other hand, has yet to accept that he is the beaver of my wolf pack.

What’s Your Animal Personality Type?

... You know, as in which side of your head should you use to break a face-plant?

It turns out that I am right-brained.  So next time I find myself taking a nosedive into the concrete, you can bet I'm turning my head to the left.

Left-Brain/Right-Brain Test

Just in case you get quizzed on this in the future, the answer is: make me one (or all) of the things below.

But seriously... those doughnuts.


#1. Homemade Baked Churro Caramel Doughnuts via Create-Celebrate-Explore
#2. Soft-Pretzel “Dunkers” with Honey Mustard via Lemon Sugar
#3. Blackberry Skillet Cobbler via Big Bear's Wife

Luckily, I don't look the 42 years of my mental age.  And it turns out that I'm also only two years younger than my mom, whose mental age is 44.

My Mental Age

The only question I had after this one is where is Derrick keeping my other glass slipper?

Which Classic Disney Movie Is Most Like Your Life?


You might think you don't need to take this one.  After all, you know that I went to brunch this weekend so there can't be anything left to know, right?

Well, actually no.  So before you think that you have me all figured out, make sure you really do.

Are you a Not Before my Tea Expert?
The Quiz

Question 1: How many life changing experiences did I witness last week?

Answer 1: Two.  This isn't a joke.  Last week, I witnessed my mom get her very first pedicure.  Honest to God.  Talk about a low maintenance woman.


I also witnessed Derrick's brother, Jordan, try his first Chicago deep dish pizza.  And I gotta tell you, Little Caesars's got nothing on Gino's East.


Question 2: What was the most useful Christmas present I received last week?

Answer 2: A sheepskin hat.



Not only do the ear flaps keep my ears extremely warm, I'm also all set in case I need to play a game of 1920's style football.


Question 3: Are the only pictures I have from home last week Christmas pictures?

Answer 3: Absolutely not.  I also have a slightly creepy picture I took of my sister's unique sleeping habits...


... an unforgivably cliche, grainy bar pic...


... and three pictures of my dog.


If you got all three questions right, I give you permission to never read my blog again.  If you got at least one wrong though, I suggest that you continue reading my weekly posts

I'm thinking of your needs, after all.

Happy Monday.
Hold on... we're almost back to normal.


Still don't feel appreciated?  There's more.
