This morning, I was wandering around some of my favorite book blogger's sites, when I came across a quiz that J.Kaye posted (J.Kaye found it on Cafe of Dreams). Anyone who's been on Facebook knows that there are more quizzes out there than there are Legos on a 7 year-old's floor. This one not only perked my curiosity, I LOVE the answer! What Crazy Writer am I?
You are funny, witty, charming...and, um, "unique" personal
tastes. You like to have fun, you don't hide who you are, and you don't
particularly give a damn what people think about you; you're just as likely to
be seen in an all-male Amsterdam brothel as a London literary society
dinner. You see beauty in life, and humor in tragedy. If it weren't
for the hosts' fears of you saying or doing something indecent, you might very
well be the perfect dinner companion.
Ok! This makes me sound much more interesting than I can possibly hope to be. I have always loved the work of Oscar Wilde, ever since I read aloud The Importance of Being Ernest in an acting workshop back when I was a teenager. The smart, witty banter stuck with me as not only being funny, but poignant. I'm sure that I am nothing like Oscar Wilde, but a girl can dream! There is only one, but it was nice that some random quiz on the Internet thought I was witty and charming.
To share a few of my favorite quotes from The Importance of Being Ernest:
- "I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read in the train."
- "It is absurd to have a hard and fast rule about what one should read and what one shouldn't. More than half of modern culture depends on what one shouldn't read."
- "The truth is rarely pure and never simple. Modern life would be very tedious if it were either, and modern literature a complete impossibility!"
I want to know, What crazy writer are YOU? Be sure to check back here when you've taken the quiz and let me know who you are and what you think!
Have a great weekend all!
