Reading is Fundamental

It has been a busy week…… so i will resume my hard-hitting critiques this weekend

So I have taken the states quiz (I am California), the country quiz (I am Turkey) and the animal quiz (I am also a Turkey – no comments from the Peanut Gallery!)

so Tengrain had the book quiz…. and I am


You’re Jurassic Park!
by Michael Crichton

You combine all the elements of a mad scientist, a brash philosopher, a humble researcher, and a money-hungry attracter of tourists. With all these features, you could build something monumental or get chased around by your own demons. Probably both, in fact. A movie based on your life would make millions, and spawn at least two sequels that wouldn’t be very good. Be very careful around islands.

Yes in many ways I feel like a dinosaur
and the University quiz…. and I am

You’re the University of California, Irvine!

Your surroundings have always been spoiled and privileged to the point of being removed from reality. At the same time, you can be surprisingly down-to-earth and aren’t even above the consumption of insects. Despite being quite young, you have established yourself as one of the better researchers in your field. You love the strange phonetics of the word “zot”.

and finally, where did I get my start in investigative journalism — why when Channel 6 in Miami nabbed me in 1998 to be part of their undercover story on employers. Being the clandestine nature of the topic, I had to do my best Groucho imitation to make sure I remained incognito

  4. Holy Crap—-my book…..ou’re Love in the Time of Cholera!by Gabriel Garcia MarquezLike Odysseus in a work of Homer, you demonstrate undying loyalty by sleeping with as many people as you possibly can. But in your heart you never give consent! This creates a strange quandary of what love really means to you. On the one hand, you’ve loved the same person your whole life, but on the other, your actions barely speak to this fact. Whatever you do, stick to bottled water. The other stuff could get you killed.Just because I don’t like Oprah Winfrey?

  5. I need to attend some self-esteem workshops. I am (hangs head) ITT Technical Intitute.Your mustache fluffs when you talk. Interesting.
