You scored 0% on all categories for mental disorders? You expect us to believe that?

Well, I guess we now know that your mental disorder must have something to do with what Winston Churchill used to describe as "gross inexactitudes."

Card

My results said that since my profile is neither that of a spinster nor a homosexual, I matched no character in the novels of Jane Austen.

Mrs. Peperium

So I have no mental disorders and you have no character. Very cool. Hey if we play our cards right, we could we be the blogosphere's Bonnie and Clyde.

Misspent

It said I suffered from depression and midly from OCD. I'd say that this test is very accurate for me. Although it isn't hard to call a spade a spade.

As far as what dead, fictional woman I am, I am just about equally Elizabeth Bennet and Charlotte Lucas

Card's wife

Misspent, please comment more. We miss you.

Misspent

I could say the same for you. I have been busy working for classes.

Mrs. Peperium

Charlotte Lucas married that cold fish clergyman, Mr.....Collins! because she thought that was the best offer she was going to get. He was Lady Catherine's de Bourgh's bootlicker and was going to inhereit her best friend's home. Achi-machi. What does this mean?

Mrs. Peperium

Charlotte Lucas was 27 to boot! Aren't you 27? Where can we find your Miss Collins? Or would you prefer a Mr.?

Hey Card's wife, did you hear 3 inches of snow tomorrow. Yikes!

The Polynesian night is not tomorrow but maybe over the weekend though I really think a visit to Dick O'Dow's is in order...

Card's wife

A table in back by the fireplace.

Card's wife

Misspent, guess where Lucy and Ethel are going the end of January?

Mrs. Peperium

Misspent, if we do the Polynesian night over the weekend then POPS and MOMS could join in. You could make some poi and coconut shrimp (yucky) and POPS could whip up a blender drinks...

I was striving for Card's "no character" result, but instead matched Mrs. P. Well, except that the matched character was spelled "Elinor" Dashwood in my case. As is probably true of the rest of your readership, I am pleased not to have been asked to take the other test. No reason to provide even more evidence that I am, in the words of the protagonist in Rocky II, "mentally irregular."

Mrs. Peperium

I think you're a tad OCD - the Elinor/Eleanor is the give away.

Mrs. P, there simply are not enough hours in the day to write my dissertation, read for my seminar, attend the seminar, row, maintain a haphazard existence on the web, say the rosary, go to morning mass, and keep up with my personal correspondence.

I think the University is remiss in requiring a dissertation of me. Eight thousand words examining Loyalism during the American War of Independence? Phooey, I can't wait to be done with it. The End.

Mrs. Peperium

It's funny that you should mention Loyalism during the War of Independence because my mother and I were just discussing this very topic today. You see, she and I are trying to wedge our way into The Colonial Dames of America. Our suitability now hangs on the sermons of one relative during the War of Independence. He did not fight so there's a chance he might have been a Loyalist. What we now have to do now, or rather my mother doe, is check the parish records to see if he gave any fiery speeches against England. If he did, then we're a shoe-in. If not, oh well I'm Catholic monarchist anyway so who needs the Colonial Dames.

Misspent

Pah! Try writing the same amount on harmonization of American and European merger regulations. That will haunt your life long after you are done with it.

Misspent

Yes yes yes, but do you have any relatives named after George Washington? As in their name was George Washington _____? I do. Two of them, to be exact.

Misspent

Oh, and I don't know if I want to guess either Chicago or DC because wherever they end up there will be trouble.

I don't know if I can fit into my skit and bra anymore, at least not without some underwire problems. But I might see if I can suitably protect the innocent so I can post a picture.

Mrs. Peperium

Relatives named after George Washington? Nope. That was really a Soputhern tradition. Are you Southern too?
I once worked with a guy who named his son Keith Richards. Yes, Keith Richards as in that Keith Richards.

Mrs. Peperium

Correction : southern tradition

Steve M.

Mrs. P, I must run for now, but I see there is a nice OCD test on the web here: psychcentral.com/ocdquiz.htm

Mrs. Peperium

Did you pass with flying colors?

Mrs. Peperium

Misspent, 70412 hits. Oh and we are number 1 on Goggle for one if by clam, two if by sea. See how it pays to post on bivalves.

Andrew: Worry about Mass and the rosary first and the rest will fall into place.

If you have to do a dissertation on the loyalists during the revolution, you may have to come and visit our neck of the woods. Many of the United Empire Loyalists, as they came to be known, moved north to Canada. They settled in Upper Canada for the most part because Lower Canada was French. Lower Canada, as I'm sure you know, became known as Quebec. While Upper Canada became known as Ontario. That part of southern Ontario that lies between New York and Michigan just north of Lakes Ontario and Erie became a hotbed of United Empire Loyalism and presented some real trouble for us during the War of 1812. Even today, most of the inhabitants of this area are the descendents of old United Empire Loyalists. Just look at a map of this area. Particularly between Toronto and Detroit. The names of the towns and cities speak volumes about these people and their loyalties: Hamilton, Kitchener, Waterloo, Woodstock, Cambridge, Stratford, London, Chatham, Essex, Windsor and on and on.

When I was a boy and vacationed on the great lakes in this area, you could find old farms, small shops, and antique dealers whose places were filled with old English china, framed pictures of Queen Victoria, Prince Albert, King Edward VII. And you'd see the Union Jack flying everywhere next to the old Canadian Red Ensign. This is North America's heartland of British loyalty, and most of them are the descendents of Americans who left the thirteen colonies willingly or fled in peril during the Revolutionary War.

Mrs. Peperium

A lot of fish n' chip shops too.
