a sad realization

According to the Disney princesses quiz, I'm Sleeping Beauty. Clearly though, this is incorrect. Think about it: I can't sleep if there's light in the room, or if the neighbors are jumping up and down upstairs, or if anyone in my apartment is awake, or if the light rail outside the hotel is clanging its bell and making lots of noise, or if I don't have a mattress to sleep on. If I do manage to sleep under these circumstances, I wake up with a splitting headache or back problems. Much less 100 hours, I can't even sleep a full eight hours unless the environment meets my exacting requirements. Clearly, I'm not Sleeping Beauty; I'm the princess from The Princess and the Pea. That's right, the lamest princess in fairy-tale history. I'm too lame to even get a movie made about me.

Well, we can't all be awesome like Chantal (or Rosie, who is definitely a Sleeping Beauty).

Cindy, that's sad. Ouch.
But, if you are most like Sleeping Beauty you should get someone like Prince Phillip, and he's pretty cool.

If I remember correctly, you also have an aversion to all things vegetable, thus strengthening the Princess and the Pea argument.

Cindy said...

I don't have a vegetable aversion per se. I'm just particular about how they're prepared and where they appear. For instance, I don't think cubed tomatoes belong in spaghetti sauce, I don't think onion pieces belong on pizza, and I don't think peas belong in beds. That's all.

I just remember when we went to Macaroni Grill and you had to eat your broccoli first to "get it out of the way" or something like that. To your credit, you did eat them.

Cindy said...

Well that's true. I like to eat the least yummy foods first, and broccoli is usually at the head of the line.

I was going to say that there is nothing to this quiz. Then I took the test.

You Are Mulan!



Strong and spirited. You're no one's girly girl; actually you are very determined person with a strong sense of self. Never let go of that! The only thing that equals your sense of self is your family, but the traditions of society can always be bent to protect something or someone you love.

True. I definitely wouldn't call you a girly girl.

I really am Sleeping Beauty. The quiz told me so.
(And in the mouths of two or three witnesses....)

Rebecca said...

The quiz says I'm Ariel. Really, I'm not the rebellious type, nor do I like "exploring exotic places" which it says is my "ultimate dream". Nonsense.

Rebecca, do you mean to say, I mean do you mean to say that this quiz does not in fact completely reflect reality? I cannot see that as possibly being true.

If the quiz has determined that you like exploring exotic places, then I can only come to the conclusion that you do not know your true desires.

I recently took a quiz and was somewhat surprised to find out that I am, in fact, only 90% geek.

Prior to this moment, I had supposed myself 100% geek, but am now left in the unenviable position of having to find out where the other 10% of me went...
