Quiz blitz...

Did these a while back...

On what colour I am (as if you couldn't tell from looking at my blog :P! Proud to be from the Emerald Isle I am too!)

Your Life is 72% Green


You live a very green life, and you're aware of how your actions help the earth.

Of course, it's hard to be totally green. But when you make a tradeoff, you know why you're making it.



Your Blog Should Be Green


Your blog is smart and thoughtful - not a lot of fluff.

You enjoy a good discussion, especially if it involves picking apart ideas.

However, you tend to get easily annoyed by any thoughtless comments in your blog.


You Are A Green Girl


You feel most at home in a world of ideas.

You're curious and logical - and enjoy a good intellectual challenge.

You're super cool, calm, and collected. Very little tries your patience.

Your only fear? People not realizing how smart and able you are!



On what kind of President am I? (Only a couple of items - both I could have easily gone for either way - turned me from JFK to Bill or vice versa. Anyway, it was no secret that I whole-heartedly supported Hillary during the primaries... So far, President Obama seems to be doing the right things, except perhaps his continuing pro-Israeli stance. But on that score he is probably more neutral than Hillary).

You Are 92% Democrat


You are a card carrying Democrat, and a pretty far left one at that!

There's no chance anyone would ever mistake you for a Republican.



You Are Most Like Bill Clinton


No doubt, your legacy may be a little seedier than you'd like.

But even though you've done some questionable things, you're still loved by almost all.



You Are Most Like John F. Kennedy


You live a fairy tale life that most people envy.

And while you may have a few dark secrets, few people know them.



You Are 8% Capitalist, 92% Socialist


You see a lot of injustice in the world, and you'd like to see it fixed.

As far as you're concerned, all the wrong people have the power.

You're strongly in favor of the redistribution of wealth - and more protection for the average person.


And finally, I have been thinking of getting a dog for a goodish while now... Especially as it seems that I managed to not completely kill the plants that I have, though I have been advised to perhaps graduate to fish or a bird first before taking on a puppy...

You Should Own a Beagle


Low maintenance, very friendly, and sturdy.

I only did 2.

- I should have a Beagle.

- I am 40% capitalist and 60% socialist.

Sounds about right.

Hi Exile, so you're also thinking of owning a dog also?

The closest I came to owning a puppy was when years ago a family friend gave us one of her labrador retriever puppies that her dog just gave birth to... we had it for about a day but as soon as the puppy peed on the kitchen floor, my mum said No way jose!

We had a Scottish Terrier for years, the sweetest thing on the planet though high maintenance. She died. Then we decided to give dog-parenthood a break. I really want one but am kind of afraid of the responsibility. Right now we live in a condo, so having a dog may not be a good idea, plus we travel quite a bit. Oh, labrador retriever puppies are the cutest. Better than Beagles if you ask me. Snowdrops, you get one, then show us the pictures.

Thanks Exile for sharing the story of your Scottish Terrier, s/he must have been very special.

I'm really still at the wishful thinking stage as regards pet ownership, so it'd be quite some time before I can actually get a dog. I know I need to do quite a bit of research into dog breeds and build relationships with reputable dog breeders, etc. I live in an apartment also, and the practicality, and indeed the ethics, of having a dog in a confined space is what gives me pause, although there is a lot of lovely green common outdoor space on my estate and quite a few of my neighbours already own dogs. I also travel quite a bit in a normal (non Phd submission) year, but one of my best friends who lives close to me has two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels puppies herself and she could take mine in if needed.

But no doubt about it, if and when I get a dog (I think it's more a question of when than if), I wouldn't be able to stop posting pictures of her/him (still haven't decided whether it should be a girl or a boy puppy) on here :)

Haha, thanks a million Mad Dog, the link to all those lovely JRM photos does brighten up my day (especially as it's been snowing in Dublin earlier today!)

Thanks so much for thinking of me when it comes to gorgeous male celebs :)
