but I LIKE my pigeonhole!

Ah, quizzes, quizzes, how would I know who I am without you?

Unlike many of my friends, who hate the idea that someone could take their answers to a few questions and put them in a box, I am thrilled by classification. I want to get into as many boxes as possible. (Er, that came out kind of wrong. Move along now.) Maybe it's having a dad who worked too long in human resources, so that Myers-Briggs personality typing was what passed for a fun father-daughter activity. Maybe it's having a mom with a Queen-Virgo desire for order. Maybe I acquired some kind of brain damage from early exposure to those teen magazine quizzes. ("Are You Too Bossy? Take our quiz and find out!" Newsflash: no one needed a quiz to answer this question about me. Next!) Maybe I don't care why. The internet and its loads of esoteric surveys have turned up a bunch of different faces for me, some less flattering than others. Anyone remember the Pomeranian fiasco? or the time I got told that the lady band I resembled most was the Indigo Girls? I'll never live that down. This, on the other hand, is kinda nice:

You Are a Chick Rocker!

You're living proof that chicks can rock
You're inspired by Joan Jett and the Donnas
And when you rock, you rock hard
(Plus, you get all the cute guy groupies you want!)

Apparently even a retired alt-pop chick can still be cool. At least, I play cool on tv.

like you didn't know you were emo.

and what's wrong with black horn-rimmed glasses?
"girls often make passes
at boys who wear glasses."

what you guys really want to know, though, is how gay you are...

compared to how gay your pets are.

Wow. I'm a 50% gay, chick rocker/ freedom rocker. Always the hybrid, that's me. Well no, some of the time I am a hybrid and the other part of the time I am just one thing. Yah.

Well now I know. Good. What am I doing wasting time and money in school when such profound wisdom is available to me through the internet. Lies? What lies pol?

no, no, it's the other quiz that's bogus--it thinks I am gayer than Schrody. um. no.

Yay! I'm a glam rocker! (Eat that emo suckers!)

Just kidding. XO.

I'm 43% gay! Not that anyone needed a test result to know that.

And Jeff, I've seen your glasses - you rigged your rock star test.
