Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] aztiluna13, because I'm killing time before class starts and don't have enough of my Gally report done yet to post.

It's not even vaguely close to where I actually live, but apparently shows the result of a Philadelphia spending way, way too much time with people from the UK!

What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on Memegen.net

Southern. Love it or hate it, your accent says you're probably from somewhere south of the Ohio River.

If you're not from the South, you probably were overanalyzing the questions. Take the quiz again but don't think so hard next time.

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?

Made for a long defunct Magnificent Seven icon contest, this one is of one of my favourite scenes from the show. It also sums up a lot of my days (although I keep forgetting to use the icon), when things just won't be easily black and white.

For the rest...

Still playing the icon meme going around, here are the icons that [livejournal.com profile] taibhrigh picked:

Ah, White Collar, my brand new shiny fandom. After [livejournal.com profile] mashfanficchick eventually convinced me to give it a try, I got almost immediately addicted. Despite the fact that I very emphatically did NOT need another fandom, I seem to have one. I can't get enough of it!

Clicky-clicky for the rest

I'm also still quite happy to do more of these, so if anyone wants me to pick icons of theirs, just comment either here or at the original post.

Trying to not go to bed too early, so here's a meme. (Snagged from all over)

Dear [livejournal.com profile] roboticduck,

I don't really know how to tell you this, but the mafia wants you. I think I realized it when we skinny dipped with George Bush and his wife and I saw you drive out the crazy monk. I'm sure you're ashamed enough to understand how awful I've felt. I'm returning the couch cushions to you, but I'll keep your collection of butterflies as a memory. You should also know that I told in my confession today about a new life as a clone.

Good luck on your short-term leave from jail,

Your result for What Planet are You From? Test...

You are from Uranus!

27% Uranus

Well, how about that? You are from Uranus!

Uranus is a bit unusual in that it kind of tilts to its side. They think that might be because it was involved in some kind of collision with another planet or huge asteroid at some time. Uranus also has nine rings. It was discovered in 1871 and is the third largest planet in our solar system.

Uranus was named after the Greek father of the sky. It is said that he come to the planet to mate with Gaia, but he hated the children that she bore. Hmmm. Does that mean that you don’t like very many humans?

What does this say about you?

Well, it means that you have a very strong personality. You like being different. You are just one of those people that are hard to describe. You like to make people think because you realize that life is always changing.

You have lots of ideas and could possibly be an inventor. You enjoy learning about new things and trying things out. You are definitely a doer and a creator. Give you a rubber band, a paper clip, and a ball point pin and I’m sure you could manage to do something very interesting and unusual with it.

Intelligence becomes you!

Which Goddess lurks in your soul?

A child of the darkness you are! Nyx is the Greek Goddess of the Night and inhabits those souls who desire darkness. Not necessarily an evil or good person, you simply desire to surround yourself in all things mystical that inhabit the night time landscape. A fascination with the stars and celestial bodies also tends to accompany those whom Nyx has taken up residence in. Embrace the darkness baby because it's already embraced you!

I'm a Mandarin!

You're an intellectual, and you've worked hard to get where you are now. You're a strong believer in education, and you think many of the world's problems could be solved if people were more informed and more rational. You have no tolerance for sloppy or lazy thinking. It frustrates you when people who are ignorant or dishonest rise to positions of power. You believe that people can make a difference in the world, and you're determined to try.

Talent: 46%
Lifer: 31%
Mandarin: 54%

Take the Talent, Lifer, or Mandarin quiz.

And that makes three of us who are surprised at the number of results. Of course, maybe it says something about our society...

This is what happens when I've been doing homework for too long...

Your result for The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test...


Outcast Genius

65 % Nerd, 83% Geek, 52% Dork

For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.

A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.

A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in all three, earning you the title of: Outcast Genius.

Outcast geniuses usually are bright enough to understand what society wants of them, and they just don't care! They are highly intelligent and passionate about the things they know are *truly* important in the world. Typically, this does not include sports, cars or make-up, but it can on occassion (and if it does then they know more than all of their friends combined in that subject).

Outcast geniuses can be very lonely, due to their being outcast from most normal groups and too smart for the room among many other types of dorks and geeks, but they can also be the types to eventually rule the world, ala Bill Gates, the prototypical Outcast Genius.
