Thursday Thirteen # 72

T13blue snowman

Thirteen blog quizzes complete with commentary

Here at the hacienda, we like us some blog quizzes.  There are many reasons why that is, many of them probably having to do with  my native light-mindedness, but I still like them.  And here are 13 that I've taken since the last time I used this for a Thursday Thirteen topic.  Happy Thursday, everyone!


You Are Very Skeptical

Your personal motto is: "Prove it."
While some ideas, like life after death, may seem nice...
You aren't going to believe them simply because it feels good.
You let science and facts be your guide... Even if it means you don't share the beliefs of those around you.

Yeah, right...



You Are a Total Brainiac

You're amazingly brilliant. Some would even say genius. You're curious, thoughtful, analytical, and confident. You take on difficult subjects because you want to... not because you have to. No field of knowledge is too complicated or intimidating for you. You've got the brains to do anything you want. It's possible you end up doing everything you want.

You mean, like sleeping?


You Are 69% Creative

You are beyond creative. You are a true artist - even if it's not in the conventional sense of the word. You love creating for its own sake, and you find yourself quite inspired at times.

True.  I'm very inspired by sleeping.


You Are Somewhat Like Your Mom

Believe it or not, you and your mom are pretty similar. It may not seem like it at times, but you and your mom have a lot of common ground. Over time, you'll probably get closer ... especially if you emphasize the things you like about each other.

Yeah, like, duh.  Who hasn't heard their mother's voice and words coming right out of their mouths?


You Are 20% Extrovert, 80% Introvert

You are quite reserved You aren't afraid of social situations... But you very much prefer to go it alone And why not? You're your own best friend!

Well, this was also a no-brainer.


You Are a White Rose

You represent youthfulness and purity. Your vibe: Sweet and heavenly. Falling in love with you is like falling in love for the first time

That's not what Friend Husband says. 


What Lori Means

L is for Lively O is for Orderly R is for Refined I is for Important

Ouch!  0 for 4!


How You Live Your Life

You tend to deprive yourself of things you crave, for your own good. You're laid back and chill, but sometimes you care too much about what others think. You tend to have one best friend you hang with, as opposed to many acquaintances. You tend to dream big, but you worry that your dreams aren't attainable.

I know my dreams aren't attainable.  That also makes me a realist.


Your Scent is Lemon

Vivacious, tangy, and lively, you are one gigantic ball of energy!

Girl smell?  I guess if I have to have a 'girl smell', this one works.  Wish they were right about the gigantic ball of energy thing too.


You Are 80% Texas

Well, knock me down and steal muh teeth! You're sure as shootin’ Texan.

Yeah, and all Texans talk like that.  I have to check my Texan quotient every so often.  I've been gone so long I'm afraid it'll rub off.


You Should Be a Cherry Redhead

Sexy, dramatic, but still sweetly feminine. Perfect for getting out of the hair color doldrums!

Sounds like a plan...


In 1967 (the year you were born)

Lyndon B. Johnson is president of the US

President Johnson and Soviet premiere Aleksei Kosygin agree not to let any crisis push them into wore

Thurgood Marshall is sworn in as the first black Supreme Court justice

The first home microwave is released by Amana

Dave Matthews, Kurt Cobain, Liz Phair, Vin Diesel, Julia Roberts, and Anna Nicole Smith are born

St. Louis Cardinals win the World Series

Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl I

Boston Bruins win the Stanley Cup

Disney's The Jungle Book and The Graduate are the top grossing films

One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez is published

Paul McCartney announces that all four members of the Beatles have "dropped acid".

For the first time, Jimi Hendrix sets his guitar on fire during a concert in London

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is released.

The first issue of Rolling Stone magazine is published

The FCC orders that cigarette ads on television, radio and in print must include a warning about the health risks of smoking.

Yeah, and they totally forgot about the "Summer of Love".  The fact that I was born during the Summer of Love means that Mom & Dad were ahead of the trend.


You Are Quite Worldly

You've done a good bit of worldly exploring, and you have an international perspective.
And you're definitely looking forward to your future adventures abroad.
You've got the passport, the desire to travel, and maybe even the language skills.
Now all you need are the means!

In other words, if you're an American and you've left the country a few times, you're worldly.  Ok.

I am a brainiac too. I would have been offended by that when I was a teen. :o(

I loved the link to what happened the year you were born. Do you know Brad Pitt and I are the same age? I think he looks way younger than I do.

AJ Chase said...

Thanks for that. That was totally fun. I took all those quizzes. Apparently I'm not very Texan though.

Tracy said...

You have created a great list! I will probably spend my afternoon doing several of them (so much for the house cleaning!).
I just found your blog today, and I wanted to invite you to my free kids science website. I want kids to find the fun in science again, so please come and take a look.
