    A Few Light Fares to Complement the 50 Things

    I consider myself a little weird and picky...but...
    You Are 90% Weird

    You're more than quirky, you're downright strange.
    But you're also strangely compelling, like a cult leader.


    Friends make up part of my life. They have modled and pruned me.
    You Are A Good Friend

    You're always willing to listen
    Or lend a shoulder to cry on
    You're there through thick and thin
    Many people consider you their "best friend"!


    And this one really hits home...
    How You Are In Love

    You take a while to fall in love with someone. Trust takes time.

    You give completely and unconditionally in relationships.

    You tend to get very attached when you're with someone. You want to see your love all the time.

    You love your partner unconditionally and don't try to make them change.

    You stay in love for a long time, even if you aren't loved back. When you fall, you fall hard.


    Happy New Year!

    This tests are fun and it often surprising to see how on the money they can be --- however, I took the first one and it says the following:

    You Are 70% Weird
    You're so weird, you think you're *totally* normal. Right?
    But you wig out even the biggest of circus freaks!

    ...I was expecting a rating below 20% because I am very normal. Don't ya think?!?!?

    I am so totally depressed. I'm only 30% weird. Hell, that practically makes me a Republican. Gork. I'm really depressed. I think I'll go eat a chocolate cake.
