Stupid questionnaires...
Ok, yes.

After swearing up and down for the last six months that I wouldn't inflict this tripe on anyone, I'm finally posting this stupid-ass long "all about me" quiz. I still firmly (heh heh) stand by my position that it amounts to nothing more than a bunch of typographical masturbation (I mean, everyone loves to talk about themselves, but who wants to hear about anyone else... unless they have some secret crush on them?). So don't read if you don't want to; I won't be offended. I normally skip them.

However, I have decided to make it interesting for whatever readers have struggled this far. I've thought about doing a number of things... such as mix up all the answers, and put them next to a random question.

But then I remembered that I was trying to make it less tedious for the reader, not moreso.

So I figured I'd hit the random link a bunch of times, and post one question/answer pair to the journal of each person I hit, until I got to the end. So I wouldn't have to inflict this on you, but rather just confuse the hell out of a bunch of random LiveJournal'ers. I haven't yet done that, but I'm keeping the idea in reserve.

Then I got the brilliant idea of putting an <IMG> tag beside every question, by way of answer, and dig up interesting images from the internet that I thought would represent my answer graphically. The more cryptic and opaque, the better. Then I got the even more brilliant idea that people might actually want to look at their "friends" pages sometime over the next couple of days without waiting two and a half hours for the page to load.

(However, if there is any demand, I may make such a page and stick it on my webserver or something, and post a link to it here. Let me know if you are at all interested (yeah right).)

So I finally settled on a compromise. I answered all the questions on a sheet of paper (again trying to come up with "interesting" phrasing, as much as the question allowed), entered them into Google, and linked the questions (as they appear here) to the first (non-defunct, non-PDF, etc) result I got back.

Some of them are pretty straightforward (entering my name turns up my resum� as the first hit; how appropriate is that?), many of them less so. It acts more as a "random link" page than anything else, especially down near the end. Enjoy!

(Yes, I know some questions are missing. That's the way I got it)

Hey!

"but who wants to hear about anyone else... unless they have some secret crush on them?"

Honestly, I ENJOY reading these surveys as they give me an idea as to who the person is, according to themselves. It shows me how they view themselves. I always read all the way through.

No, I don't have a secret crush on you LOL. I just find these surveys to be.. interesting.. *Shrug*

Yours is a little confusing, and I would have found normal typed responses a little bit easier to decipher.

I will give you credit for being creative though, I've never seen one answered in this format, it's kinda neat. =-)
