Your result for What's your key signature?...

E Major

Congratulations, you’re E Major, now start pumping out those root notes on the bass. Yes, the quintessential key of rock suits anything that requires loud and low on the bass, high and screechy on guitar, and open fifths on electric keyboard. With 4 sharps it’s not the best key for winds or piano, but with the tuning on guitars, it’s like the two were made for each other. That’s probably why metal, punk and all sorts of hard rock throw down to this key. E is for energy after all, it seems.

So are you, of course. Energy and noise are what you’re all about! Go for the gusto all you want, friend. Overdoing your bubbling over amount of adrenaline can be bad. And don’t run over old people. That’s bad.

SONG EXAMPLE: Pretty much anything in the genres I listed up there.


* As if to drive the point home that this is a key to be played on loud amped up instruments, E is incredibly hard to play on the ukulele.

What Your Burger Says About You

You are very gluttonous. Even if you're full, you'll still clear your plate.

You are the ultimate foodie. You're picky about food quality, but you're not picky about eating strange things.

You are a very open eater. You like many types of tastes, and you'll eat just about anything.

You tend to gravitate toward strong, pungent foods. Even if it means having bad breath!

You consider yourself a healthy eater. But you're not about to sacrifice taste or quantity!

You have trouble making decisions quickly. Everything looks good to you... especially at a restaurant.

You are creative, open minded, and friendly. You are interested in all types of food and new dishes.

Hmmm... that is a fairly inaccurate assessment.

I used to clear my plate on account of not being full; lately (last 2-3 years) I get full. And I stop. I think this point was decided because I like cheese on a burger.

I am picky about food quality, but I'm also picky about strange things. I'm a lot more open to oddities if I'm cooking; I'm extremely conventional when eating out. I think this point was based on eating burgers rare. I used to get them well done, but I can be taught. They do taste better medium rare or rare.

I'm an open eater because I like pickles? Oy. To be honest, I'd rather have a dill pickle on the side, but if they slice that sucker instead of supplying it in spear form, it goes on there. I kind of thought that was standard practice? I mean both McKangaroo and Gourmet Food include pickles on their cheap, bargain burger...

I like onions on my burger. I do like garlic. These scents, while strong on the breath, are not quite the same thing as bad breath, which is caused by organisms other than those you intended to eat.

Whole wheat buns are good, but I don't consider myself a healthy eater. I try to keep some focus, and I'd prefer all my ingredients are fresh, organic, and locally grown or raised. But, damn, just because I like whole wheat doesn't make up for the bacon and cheese! =)

I'm thinking the "having trouble making decisions" bit comes from the bacon. Not sure how that maps out, but if you asked anyone who worked with me for the last ten years, I walk in, find the Everett burger (bacon, cheddar, and barbecue sauce) and I order it. It's a great simplification, but at the places we all went to team lunches that was generally exactly what I ordered. Except when we went to Red Robin and I got the Banzai burger, but the quiz didn't even mention teriyaki or pineapple.

I expect the "creative, open minded" bit came from the BBQ sauce. It is not creative and open minded. It's closed minded. A burger without BBQ sauce - except in certain cases, such as the aforementioned Banzai burger - is a poor excuse for a slab of dead cow.

Speaking of which, the fact that I will - when possible - substitute the dead cow with some Kobe beef or, when on a budget, bison, might have earned me some points towards either the food snobbery or the open mindedness, but they never asked those questions...

Your result for The Camelot Test...

King Arthur

You value honor and equality. You are courageous and logical. While you may be passionate at times, you rarely let your emotion affect your decisions. You are (according to legend) probably the greatest monarch of all time.

I find it funny that this one also mentions tool boxes... although I'm not out for the whole velvet-lined thing. I'm fine with an oil-resistant material that slows oxidization...

Your result for The Perception Personality Image Test...

NBDC - The Illusionist

You perceive the world with particular attention to nature. You focus on the hidden treasures of life (the background) and how that is affected by the details of life. You are also particularly drawn towards the colors around you. Because of the value you place on nature, you tend to find comfort in more subdued settings and find energy in solitude. You like to ponder ideas and imagine the many possibilities of your life without worrying about the details or specifics. You are highly focused on specific goals or tasks and find meaning in life by pursuing those goals. You are a down-to-earth person who enjoys going with the flow.

take the WHAT BAD BOOK ARE YOU test.

and go to mewing.net. not as good as reading a good book, but way better than a bad one.

I notice that I happened to like the bad book [livejournal.com profile] popfiend was and this one as well. Based on some of the other results I've seen in this meme, as well as the tone of the questions, I think perhaps a different major would have been more suitable for its author - English just doesn't work well for those who lack basic reading and writing (specifically: capitalization) skills. =)

What American accent do you have?

Is that really any surprise? Except maybe for the people who say I don't have an accent. However, the ones who can't tell when I'm talking about the president of our company (Don) or one of the people on the help desk (Dawn) would agree completely.

(Click here to post your own answers for this meme.)

I miss somebody right now.  (Wife and kids are 300 miles away...) I don't watch much TV these days. I own lots of books.  (Unfortunately, they're all in boxes.)
I wear glasses or contact lenses. × I love to play video games. I've tried marijuana.  (Once. And I proved that I am completely incompetent at properly inhaling. It did absolutely nothing for me, so I haven't done it since.)
I've watched porn movies.  (They didn't impress me much.) × I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship. × I believe honesty is usually the best policy.  ("Usually" is a bit too vague for me to agree with this one.)
I curse sometimes.  (Often in Donald Duck speech...) I have changed a lot mentally over the last year. × I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.
it goes on... )

I took that "How American Are You?" quiz, and, in addition to several choices where nothing was worth answering (the sports one? WTF? women's basketball and soccer? I can't see watching one leading to the other... and what happened to hockey?) I could see which answers were intended to lead towards being considered American...

Sadly, it becomes apparent that you have to be against everything that our Founders held dear - it's quite obvious that if you're not a Republican, NRA member, pro-military, light beer drinking, arrogant, insular yet meddling, scum of the earth, you're not American to this quiz.


If there were any Americans left, GW would have been ridden out of office on a rail.

As one friend pointed out a while ago, the Constitution is a liberal document - it grants freedoms that are at the core of what America should be about - and it is wise to be conservative of it - to preserve the freedoms within, and not to restrict it or change it or destroy it. As another on my friend's list was pointing out earlier today, the Founders of this country would be appalled to see how things are progressing.


Want to be un-American? Support the current regime and continue dismantling everything the country stood for. Waving all the flags you want doesn't help a bit if you burn, rip, and destroy what they symbolized.

You scored as Angel. Angel: Angels are the guardians of all things, from the smallest ant to the tallest tree. They give inspiration, love, hope, and positive emotion. They live among humans without being seen. They are the good in all things, and if you feel alone, don't fear. They are always watching. Often times they merely stand by, whispering into the ears of those who feel lost. They would love nothing more then to reveal themselves, but in today's society, this would bring havoc and many unneeded questions. Give thanks to all things beautiful, for you are an Angel.
