State Quiz

You're Maine!

Wild and untamed, you have a vibrant and independent spirit. Most of your time is spent contemplating yet another way to market lobster to the rest of the world. This makes you feel at sea from time to time, or even unable to see the forest for the
trees. Everyone thinks your hometown is a much more famous town on the other side of the world, but you vaguely enjoy the confusion and the secrecy that results from this. After all, every town everywhere has a street you like to think is named in your honor.

Take the State Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.

Who'd a' thunk it? I'm my own state.

Now then, what are you?

Looks like I'm VIRGINIA

You're Virginia!
Part of the old school, you like both historical sites and crazy amusement parks. You like saying the word Commonwealth but couldn't really explain the concept or how it applies to your life. You like five-sided shapes, five-cent pieces, and possibly anything else having to do with the number five. Every now and then, you discard chaff from yourself that you just don't feel you need. And since you've been wondering... yes, there is a Santa Claus.

You're Vermont!
Making mountains out of molehills is your specialty. Then you sell tickets for people to ski down the slippery slopes of said molehills. What you lack in elevation you make up for in syrupy sweetness to those around you. It has been noted that perhaps you are too likely to stick to others, and thus become a nuisance to those you hoped to sweeten. In your wardrobe at home, you have more than just great coats.

I also took the country quiz:

You're France!
Most people think you're snobby, but it's really just that you're better than everyone else. At least you're more loyal to the real language, the fine arts, and the fine wines than anyone else. You aren't worth beans in a fight, unless you're really short, but you're so good at other things that it usually doesn't matter. Some of your finest works were intended to be short-term projects.

Hmmm. Interesting combination.

Ok, here's Brian's:

State Quiz
You're The U.S. Embassy!
You really like talking to people, even though many argue that you don't get much done. You think you present people with goodwill, but just about everyone is insulted by your presence. If they like having you around, it's usually because you promise to give them something. Of course, most of the reason you meet people is to find a way to exploit them, so it's a two-way street at best. Though you try hard, most of your efforts just bomb.

Country Quiz:
You're the United Nations!
Most people think you're ineffective, but you are trying to completely save the world from itself, so there's always going to be a long way to go. You're always the one trying to get friends to talk to each other, enemies to talk to each other, anyone who can to just talk instead of beating each other about the head and torso. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, and you get very schizophrenic as a result. But your heart is in the right place, and sometimes also in New York.

Maybe it's just me but I think it's so funny that Brian's the U.S. Embassy AND the United Nations! I mean, what are the odds?

LarryandJean said...

Oh, dear, now she's gone and got me hooked on these silly things. :D

Anyway, it says I'm Georgia, of all places. ;-) Just LOOK at all the Georgia allusions in their summary:

You're Georgia!

For you, life is just peachy. You've been growing a lot lately and have really invested yourself in some major companies. You prefer Coke over Pepsi, CNN over other stations, and always fly Delta. This brand loyalty seems to be pulling away from your deepest roots, but that's part of growing. You are utterly terrified of fire. Just an old sweet song keeps you on others' minds.

I confess. I knew the state I wanted and I could see where it was leading so I fudged the answers and got "home" easily.

Cheryl said...

Well - according to that test - I live in Alaska or North Dakota - which is actually pretty close to where I'm at. Though WA would have been the closest.

Cheryl said...

Country Quiz - very accurate - I would say!

You're Canada!
People make fun of you a lot, but they're stupid because you've got a much better life than they do. In fact, they're probably just jealous. You believe in crazy things like human rights and health care and not dying in the streets, and you end up securing these rights for yourself and others. If it weren't for your weird affection for ice hockey, you'd be the perfect person.
