What Obsolete Skill Are You?

| | Comments (2)

From Mixolydian Mode I discovered that:

Songs of Innocence, Introduction
You are 'regularly metric verse'. This can take
many forms, including heroic couplets, blank
verse, and other iambic pentameters, for
example. It has not been used much since the
nineteenth century; modern poets tend to prefer
rhyme without meter, or even poetry with
neither rhyme nor meter.

You appreciate the beautiful things in life--the
joy of music, the color of leaves falling, the
rhythm of a heartbeat. You see life itself as
a series of little poems. The result (or is it
the cause?) is that you are pensive and often
melancholy. You enjoy the company of other
people, but they find you unexcitable and
depressing. Your problem is that regularly
metric verse has been obsolete for a long time.

Okay, I'll "bite", as we used to say on "GEnie."

How did Quizilla know this about me:

"Your puritanical work ethic makes people think that you are weird, and not much fun. Your problem is that growing one's own food has been obsolete for a long time."

Rofl.... maybe such a deduction arises because Quizilla is unaware that there is a color known as "Orange." Thus, I became tricked into a secondary choice: Green. Oh yes, well, uhh, I really like to get up before the sun rises every morning to begin my work and sing His praises with the psalmist......

Yep, that has an agrarian ring to it, doesn't it?

The first time I took it, I was pretty unhappy with the choices, too. I was also unhappy with the result: "French". Me? Hedonistic? No way.

I took it a second time, going with some other choices that appealed equally to me, and this time I was "Latin". That seems far more appropriate, but it still seems odd.
