twirlgrrl: (bear eating worms-Art: Ana Bagayan)
1. Are you a vegetarian? Vegan?: I have been vegetarian in my life, but I'm not now.

2. What's your favorite food?: I don't think I can pick just one. Right now I'm quite fond of chocolate milkshakes, pears, avocado on toast, baked potatoes, and pasta with browned butter and mizithra cheese.

3. White bread or whole wheat?: Whole wheat--preferably the kind with nuts and seeds and stuff. Yum!

4. What's for breakfast?: Cereal with milk, avocado or hard boiled egg on toast, or Big Franks on toast with mustard and butter. And sliced fruit or sometimes juice.

5. You're making a Dagwood sandwich. What's in it?: I don't know. I prefer a reuben, club, or avocado and cheese with mayo.

6. What's on your pizza?: Tomato sauce, cheese, and olives. Or pesto, sliced potatoes, and garlic (the You Say Potato at Escape from NY.) Or pepperoni. Or gorgonzola, sun-dried tomatoes, capers and smoked salmon. But usually olives.

7. Coffee, tea, milk, or soda?: Almost always water. Soda sometimes when I'm eating out.

8. Dark, milk, or white chocolate?: Most often milk, sometimes dark. I don't really dig white chocolate. It isn't chocolate!

9. Teetotal, beer, wine, or hard liquor?: I hate beer and generally dislike wine, and I'm practically a teetotaler but I'll have a vodka-containing drink once or twice a year, socially.

10. Does cilantro taste like citrus, or like soap?: Neither. It tastes spicy.

11. Is chorizo the greatest thing ever or is it totally disgusting?: Ummm... I think I may have had veggie chorizo as an ingredient in some hippie scramble once or twice. Is it spicy?

12. Do you use garlic like a vegetable or like a spice?: There is no such thing as too much garlic. So, vegetable, I guess.

13. Onions: raw, cooked, or not at all?: Raw on a hamburger. Cooked in anything that calls for them. Yum! (I used to hate them as a kid.)

14. Does broccoli taste sweet or bitter?: A little bitter, cooked. I prefer it raw, dipped in ranch dressing or vinegar, or on a salad.

15. How do you feel about fish?: I like the white, flaky, non-fishy kind, especially in fish & chips. I like salmon smoked or baked but not raw. I don't eat fish that are bottom feeders or don't have scales, so no catfish or swordfish for me. I also don't eat shellfish.

16. How about sushi?: I *LOVE* vegetarian sushi; I don't eat raw fish.

17. Fave ethnic cuisine?: Bethy had a great answer to this one pointing out the problematic term "ethnic cuisine." Good point, Bethy. Applying the commonly-accepted North American usage of this term, I'll say that if I had to pick just one I'd probably pick ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm that's a hard one. Thai, Mexican, Italian, or Burmese. But I also love Indonesian, Chinese, Greek, Dutch, Lebanese (and all Middle Eastern, really), Ethiopian... pretty much everything I've ever tried. And I haven't tried all the "ethnic" cuisines yet.

18. What's your favorite fruit?: Nectarines, pears, pineapple. I love a lot of fruits though.

19. Cheese - thumbs up or thumbs down? How about blue cheese?: I love a lot of cheeses, especially smoked gouda and salty cheeses like halloumi and mizithra. Blue cheese has its place. I'm not a fan of super strong gamey flavored goat cheeses.

20. Finally, favorite dessert?: The chocolatey-er, the better.

Here's that secrets meme... The one where the questions are a secret and you just list your friends as answers. If you want to know the questions you have to leave me your email address (comments screened.) FYI: I received several versions of this so even if you've seen it before the questions might not be the same as the ones you got from someone else. Also, OMG, this is so high school! So I'm doing it with tongue in cheek.

It's obvious that I answer every single comment I ever get on my LJ. LOL.

Also, my LJ is just not the kind that gets a lot of comments. I'm not sure why that is, but I guess it's fine. I like my journal the way it is. And I sure do appreciate every comment I get. Thanks!!

Who comments the most on this journal? )

Barack Obama 78%

My Personality
Openness to Experience
You do not feel nervous in social situations, and have a good impression of what others think of you, however you feel strong cravings and urges that you have difficulty resisting. You tend to prefer short-term pleasures and rewards over long-term consequences. You get overwhelmed by too much noise and commotion and do not like thrill-seeking activities. You prefer facts over fantasy and are more interested in what is happening in the real word. You find helping other people genuinely rewarding and are generally willing to assist those who are in need. You find that doing things for others is a form of self-fulfillment rather than self-sacrifice, however you feel superior to those around you and sometimes tend to be seen as arrogant by other people. You take your time when making decisions and will deliberate on all the possible consequences and alternatives.

I strongly disagree with the 2nd and 3rd sentences. Everything else is probably pretty true... I worry about being perceived as arrogant but I know I sometimes get a little too big for my britches, even though I try not to.

I don't know, this wasn't my favorite personality test. If you take it, let me know what you think of the results!

What dog breed are you? I'm a Labrador Retriever! Find out at

I kindof suspected this, not even knowing what breeds they would choose from. I don't know about the dashing good looks... or the patience.

Labrador Retriever
The Caretaker

Your family is what makes you tick, and you never "flea" from an opportunity to hang out with the whole gang. A family picnic complete with hot dogs, deviled eggs and a refreshing swim in the lake is hard for you to stray from. Your sparky temperament and dogged intelligence mean you are not only a blast to hang out with, but great to work with as well. Your close pals appreciate your patience and forgiveness, knowing you'd rather let sleeping dogs lie than dwell on the mishaps of the past. Your dashing good looks may one day lead to a modelling career, if only you can tame the unfortunate clumsiness that sometimes causes you to go flailing from the catwalk.

Part of being on is inevitably gaining a number of LJ buddies. Unfortunately, as time wears on, it's easy to forget where all of them came from. Post this in your journal and have your friends respond with how they recall first meeting you.

Your Score: ESFJ-The Provider

You scored 72% I to E, 73% N to S, 28% F to T, and 47% J to P!

Providers, a subgroup of the Guardians, take it upon themselves to arrange for the health and welfare of those in their care, as well as being quite sociable. Wherever they go, Providers take up the role of social contributor, happily giving their time and energy to make sure that the needs of others are met, that traditions are supported and developed, and that social functions are a success. Providers are extremely sensitive to the feelings of others, which makes them perhaps the most sympathetic of all the types, but which also leaves them rather self-conscious, that is, highly sensitive to what others think of them. Because of this Providers can be crushed by personal criticism, and will work most effectively when given ample appreciation both for themselves personally and for the service they give to others. This is not to say that Providers are afraid to express their own emotional reactions. They are quick to like and dislike--and don't mind saying so--tending to put on a pedestal whatever or whoever they admire, and to come down hard on those people and issues they don't care for. You share your type with 10% of the population.

As a romantic partner, you work hard to nurture and protect your relationships. You go to great lengths to maintain harmony and are motivated to resolve conflicts. You have a very clear idea of what is important to you and do best when your partner shares those same values. You want your partner to be loving, committed, and willing to support your frequently overwhelming feelings and reactions. You feel most appreciated when your partner is kind, considerate, and helpful, and compliments you often on your hard work in their behalf.

Your group summary: Guardians (SJ)

Your Type Summary: ESFJ

I think most people in U.S. TV and movies have the same "accent" as me... like the people on Friends, LOL.

The funny thing is, I used to have a major Valley Girl accent going on. Remember that song? Surely some of you are old enough to remember when it was on the radio. I had a lovely but very naive neighbor at the time, and we were playing at my house when Valley Girl came on the radio. Launa looked at me, wide-eyed, and said "Is that YOU?!"

Like, OMG, gag me with a spoon!

What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on

Western. Like Midland, Western is another accent that people consider neutral. So, you might not actually be from the Western half of the country, but you definitely sound like it.

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?
