I don’t know if I completely agree with this. I’d like to meet more local bloggers but I’m also of the opinion that they won’t be up to Moxie standards, meaning their writing is disjointed, vapid, and excessively snarky. That could be an unfair opinion, of course. If there are any LBC bloggers out there reading this, give me a shout, would ya?
On Johnny Rocket’s recommendation in the comments, I tried out the Movie Buff quiz:
|Your Movie Buff Quotient: 68%|
You are a total movie buff. Classics, blockbusters, indie favorites… you’ve seen most of them.
Your friends know to come to you whenever they need a few good DVD rental suggestions.
Wow, only 68%, huh? That’s shocking. But I still haven’t seen Gone with the Wind, 2001, or The Godfather series. Yeah, yeah, I know. They are in my Netflix queue.
I saw this other quiz while I was on the Blogthings page:
|You Are a Ham Sandwich|
You are quiet, understated, and a great comfort to all of your friends.
Over time, you have proven yourself as loyal and steadfast.
And you are by no means boring. You do well in any situation – from fancy to laid back.
Your best friend: The Turkey Sandwich
I always enjoy taking little personality quizzes, whether in magazines or online. While frequently I alter my answers in order to get a more favorable outcome, I’m trying harder to answer more honestly. My friend Violet posted some of these quizzes on her blog, so here’s a few that I took, along with my typical smart-ass responses.
On Whether Moxie Has Been Assimilated into the Southern California Borg:
|You Are 44% California|
I’m glad this wasn’t over 50%, because I am soooo over this L.A. thing. Been here since 2000, so I guess this is my 7-year itch. And I hate being itchy.
On Whether or Not Moxie is Primed for World Domination:
|You Are Not Destined to Rule the World|
You are destined for something else…
Like inventing a new type of cupcake.
You just don’t have the stomach for brutality.
But watch out – because many people do!
Yeah, right. More like y’all ain’t ready for me. Everyone knows that I am supposed to rule the world. Except maybe Karl Rove. And Jesus. Oh, and Scooter Libby.
On How Much Moxie Knows about 80s Music:
|You Scored 65% Correct|
You are a solid child of the 80s
You’d never confuse Tiffany from Debbie
And while you may not know Prince’s first #1 hit
You know every word to Little Red Corvette
Only 65% correct? Man, I am slipping in my old age.
On What City Moxie Would Be:
|You Are New York|
Cosmopolitan and sophisticated, you enjoy the newest in food, art, and culture.
You also appreciate a good amount of grit – and very little shocks you.
You’re competitive, driven, and very likely to succeed.
Famous people from New York: Sarah Michelle Gellar, Tupac Shakur, Woody Allen
I love New York, so this makes perfect sense. Didya hear that Xanadu the Musical is opening on Broadway next month? I am so there!
On Moxie’s Pop Princess Alterego:
|Your Inner Pop Princess Is Shakira|
“Baby I would climb the Andes solely
To count the freckles on your body
Never could imagine there were only
Too many ways to love somebody”
You’re more a poet than a pop star.
Oh, lord. Well, my hips really don’t lie, and neither does my ass. My left pinky toe, though, he’s a shady little bastard.
