Very cool. I would've guessed, Cassandra. :)

As for me, was there ever a doubt...? ;)

A Modern White Knight

You live for chivalry and the love of a fine lady!

Would that your brand of gallantry were more common! You think of others above yourself but understand how best to behave in company to keep your station high.

Women must swoon at your every glimpse!

Egads! And a thousand gadzooks!

My carefully crafted curmudgeonly persona -- dashed to flinders on the curs'd karst beneath the battlements 'n' stuff...

Woman
A Gentleman's Superior

You are a woman. You have little to gain by seeking to compare yourselves to the men who throw themselves at your feet. Indeed, it is the essence of ladyhood that true gentlemen seek to emulate!

I swear these people know I am a Virgo.

Scholar the first time. And so doubting the accuracy of the test, I made a second pass, tossing a random dart of an answer at a couple of queries, only to be saddled with the White Kaaanigit moniker... Ha!

Even so, I would offer one thought concerning options for question #17. And that would be that the proper action of a gentleman in that situation should be to offer said diner an after dinner Brandy, eh what?

Pip, pip - cheerio!

I am Chaotic Null.

How's that for elemental confusion?

Then I tweaked a couple of answers and became Water.

I'm meeeeelllltiiiiinnggg!

...the proper action of a gentleman in that situation should be to offer said diner an after dinner Brandy...

But *not* the Napoleon.

Benedictine, perhaps, if the steed were of good breeding, otherwise drag the Leroux Peach Schnapps out of the sub-basement...

Posted by: BillT at February 18, 2009 02:47 PM

I am shocked that I was "Air". What is up with that?

I thought that I would be "Earth". Women. Can't trust 'em.

Posted by: We have nothing to fear but cynicism ....blah blah at February 18, 2009 02:56 PM

Ahh, good advice Bill. But is it Schnapps with straw hats and Cognac with fur felt?

Posted by: bt_flashman_hun at February 18, 2009 03:06 PM

A classic gentleman, and, predictably, Earth. Bill is the D'Artagnan to my Porthos, much as I would like to see myself as Athos.

Posted by: Das Armorer at February 18, 2009 03:11 PM

...is it Schnapps with straw hats and Cognac with fur felt?

Nup. Jaegermeister with felt and Cognac with a silk opera topper.

No *gentleman* would wear a straw skimmer, twenty-three skiddoo, eh wot?

Posted by: BillT at February 18, 2009 04:04 PM

Ya would if you were drinking bathtub gin or near beer.

And where is your raccoon coat?

Posted by: Cricket at February 18, 2009 04:16 PM

Bill is the D'Artagnan to my Porthos...

Alons-y, mon vieux boulet de canon obèse! Envoyons-nous au gala soirée du commentaire dans le Grand Hall du Château d'Argghhh!

Posted by: BillT at February 18, 2009 04:18 PM

And where is your raccoon coat?

I shaved it off. Prickly heat, ya know...

Posted by: BillT at February 18, 2009 04:21 PM

Heh. You just called me a fat cannon-ball.

I am *so* not going to bring up #82 here in these sacred halls of womynhood!

Posted by: The Master of Argghhh! at February 18, 2009 04:36 PM

I got "the scholar"... ya think?

Marvelous! You epitomize the gentlemanly tradition of ongoing education and self-improvement! Your sparkling tongue is the stuff of legend, and the wide breadth of your knowledge has saved others countless hours of pained research!

I thought it was amusing :)
Glad you liked it!

Posted by: Cassandra at February 18, 2009 08:06 PM

OK, I took my measure as a man, and was rated thusly:

Scholar

You scored 10 on Learning, higher than 85% of your peers.
10 must be the highest score one can get.

You scored 0 on Manners, higher than 14% of your peers.
No manners is higher than 14% of my peers? How rude they must be!

You scored 2 on Gallantry, higher than 20% of your peers.
Guess I'm not as gallant as I might be, huh?

You scored 2 on Mysticism, higher than 33% of your peers.
Mysticism isn't my strong suit either, apparently.

You scored 0 on Femininity, higher than 45% of your peers.
Now this is quite understandable, IM[NS]HO...

Posted by: camojack at February 19, 2009 03:53 AM

Heh. You just called me a fat cannon-ball.

No, I called you a *portly* cannonball -- as in "Porthos." A *fat* cannonball would be un boulet de canon gras.

I am *so* not going to bring up #82 here...

That would be la jambe troisième de Jean d'Argghhh.

Wasn't there something about the aged in there too?

Looks like we scared away most of the regulars.

We simply *must* bathe more often.

As to the first quiz:
I'm a cad, a heel, and a chauvanistic Romeo. The quiz didn't decide that, Colleen McIrishlass did, back in 1972. And I've never seen any reason to doubt her good intentions.

As to the second quiz:
I'm amusing dirt.

Posted by: spd rdr at February 19, 2009 05:59 PM

Wasn't there something about *the aged* in there too?

Ehhhhhh, John usually reserves "The Aged Aviator" for snarking some new bit of derring-do on my part, just to reinforce his astonishment that I haven't given myself a coronary yet.

Posted by: BillT at February 20, 2009 03:18 AM

Me

Posted by: Obloodyhell at February 25, 2009 10:00 AM

*high-fiving fellow White Knight*

Stronger than dirt, that's us.

Ummmm -- no offense, John and spd.
