My Mythical Alter-Ego

Well my friend and her hubby have scooted off down to Cork, in the south of Ireland, to start their new life. They stayed with us for about a week and it was great to see them again, but now they're off to make their way in the world. And in this case, the grass is greener on the other side - much greener, in fact, on account of all the rain, see?

And I'm back to having time to blog in the evenings. So, although I'm a little sad to see my friend go away again, I'm also happy to be able to check in with my blogging buddies. Clouds and silver linings, eh?

Speaking of which, did I ever tell you that I like quizzes? [
Yes, I realise that wasn't the smoothest transition in history. Call it poetic license. Or something. Whatever. Get over it.]
Do you like quizzes? I love quizzes. And I especially liked this quiz - got the link from
LoriNFlorida's blog and I liked the answer so much I decided to share it with y'all.

Because, you see, it says I am just like my favourite character in The Lord Of The Rings.

It says that if I were a character in an epic fantasy, I would be...


You are the Ranger, whose most
famous representation would be Strider from The
Lord of the Rings. Rangers are mythic heroes
akin to samurais and cowboys. They are loners;
they roam the woods and wildnerness, and while
they will not throw themselves into a fight
they will defend whatever cause they have taken
up. They are great warriors, but they will not
choose willingly to go to any battle. Rather
they will fight for their own beliefs, when
they want to, and where they want

Color: Forest Green
Animal: Eagle
Stone: Jade
Symbol: River


Who would you be if you were a character in an epic fantasy?

...Hm, who knew girls could be Rangers?!

Let's not start that century-long debate on men and women jobs. I always wanted to be a fighter pilot.

Lori said...

OOH cool a Ranger. I say us girls can be what ever we want to be a ranger, fighter pilot or just be a diva.

Ranger sounds like the way to go... good combination and it seems to suit you. I apparently suck beyond belief because I can't get to the quiz... perhaps I need "Which dumb blogger are you" quiz #126.... =)

lwivo Er, LiVEwiRe is a wino???

kyknoord said...

Samurais and cowboys eh? Interesting combo, to say the least.

Terri said...

Anne I can sympathise. I think it all started when I was exposed to Top Gun at an impressionable age.
Lori No guessing which one you wanna be? :-)
LiVEwIRe Try try and try again - I'd be very curious to know the outcome!
KN Like cowboys & Indians, only better :-0
