Because I'm not busy enough

with going to classes, preparing for state boards and year-end exams AND finals, traveling to see the amazing boy and my lovely friends and family, taking care of my constitutionally-deficient kitty cat and surfing the enormous pile of clothing and papers that my home has become, I took this quiz that May talked about on her blog.

(Really I took it looking for a distraction--I just found out that a woman in my class passed away this morning. I am sure this seems horrible and insensitive of me, but this is how I deal. I don't want to think about it yet. I am coping. So I take a silly quiz.)

Here are my results:
Random Brutal Love Dreamer (RBLD)
The Wild Rose

Colorful, but unpicked. You are The Wild Rose.

Prone to bouts of cynicism, sarcasm, and thorns, you excite a certain kind of man. Hoping to gather you up, he flirts and winks and asks you out, ultimately professing his love. Then you make him bleed. Why? Because you're the rare, independent, self-sufficient kind of woman who does want love, but not from a weakling.

You don't seem to take yourself too seriously, and that's refreshing. You aren't uptight; you don't over-plan. Romance-wise, sex isn't a top priority--a true relationship would be preferable. For your age, you haven't had a lot of bonafide love experience, though, and this kind of gets to core of the issue. You're very selective.

The problem is them, not you, right? You have lofty standards that few measure up to. You're out there all right, but not to be picked up by just anyone.

(They even put in this little picture of what this brutal dreamer person is supposed to look like. Eerily enough, I'm pretty sure I have this exact cardigan.)

I think it is true that "you're the rare, independent, self-sufficient kind of woman who does want love, but not from a weakling" ... BUT I hardly agree with all this: "Prone to bouts of cynicism, sarcasm, and thorns, you excite a certain kind of man. Hoping to gather you up, he flirts and winks and asks you out, ultimately professing his love. Then you make him bleed."

Ummm, you're not really a bloodying type, I think. I think you have spice and strength in copious amounts, but you're generally a pretty gentle person. Hmmmph. What do these quizzes know anyway!

Sometimes it is good to distract yourself sometimes exactly when you have ten billion other things on your plate. That's exactly when you need a little "me" time.

Thank you, darlin'. I think the quiz was fun (although--did you find some of the questions AWFULLY disturbing?), and I sort of like the image of myself as a swashbuckling bloodthirsty pirate lover. But. I am not that.

(At least not in my personal life--in clinical practice I do bleed people sometimes, but it's therapeutic, not heartbreaking.)

I so wish we were seeing you this weekend. Boo New York and California being so far apart!
