Of Course I Wanted One

The first time I took it, I got a hare. I liked Hazel in the books, but neither a Hare or a Tiger really seems right.

A Hare might be more appropriate...

My first time through I got the Gibbon; the second time through I must've felt a little more loquacious because I got the Crow, which was really almost the same qualities.

I love these things! Did you save yours and get an email link so your friends can approve your daemon?

And have you read the Pullman books? I started them a while back, but was grumpy about Pullman's tough stance on Tolkien and Lewis, so I gave up rather sooner than I normally would have.

When I first viewed your blog, you were a fox which I thought was really cool. Now, it seems to be a tiger, which is what I got, too. People must not have agreed with the fox.

Kristen, I feel better knowing that you're a tiger. I went and gave feedback on you and it said I agreed with your assessment of yourself.

Beth, i think all you have to do is click on the image and you can rate me. Is yours on your blog?

I got a tiger when I did this, and then over the course of time people have changed it to a bee and a now a wolf. It seems to be staying a wolf now. Apparently my own assessment of tiger-hood is incorrect!

I haven't read the books yet, though I probably will before the film comes out. I'm kind of excited to read them, and have been for, um, years, but for some reason have never got round to it. I'm big into reading fantasy series right now. I love Paul Park's Princess of Roumania books, and there's a sort of unsaid series being built in LeGuin's new YA novels, starting with Gifts and moving on to Voices, and in September the third one, Powers, comes out. A couple of characters from book one carry over into a new character's story in book two, and I imagine the same will occur in book three, if that pattern is one she's consciously developing, and I can't imagine anything she writes not being consciously anything.

Chris, I assessed you, and it said my assessment of you differed from your own assessment of you, and I wanted to take mine back but it was too late.

But a wolf is cool.

I seem to be a lion.

Of course it also says that I'm shy and humble, so there's clearly something wrong here.

Well, I thought maybe my tiger was suspect anyway, because it said I was shy, and I don't think I'm shy, but somehow my answers assessed me as such. Go figure. The wolf fits me more, I'm sure, as these little internet quizzes go, of course. ;-)

You're a fox, but I knew that already. :)

Better than being a spider, like me.

Aha! The quiz doesn't play nice with Firefox, it seems. :(

You are a fox, Maureen, but as Steve says, we didn't need an internet quiz to know it.

Steve, you're a spider? I was briefly a moth, which made me think of Beth's post on moths. That was very cool because it was so unexpected. I think a spider is way cool.

Walter, I have to agree with you on shy and humble. I wouldn't say you are vain and extroverted but there should be some middle ground...

Well, now you're a fox!

I was a whippet, but I didn't post because I was tired and cranky and it seemed right to me, just as it was.

Would have been fun to see it evolve, though. Perhaps I'll do it again.
