La di da

I'm not going to answer the phone. Do you know why? It's either for my nephew or my sister, both of whom have phones in their rooms, and if they wanted to talk, they'd have answered by now. I've told this one person this after he called five times in a row. Generally, I'm not rude on the phone, but this last time, the guy started calling me names and saying what he'd do to me if he ever got me alone, and that he was a member of some gang or other. He wasn't. I've met him before, even if he doesn't realize it, and he's just a petty thief, not even good enough to shoplift from a store. He's got to take things from people he knows--saying he's borrowing them, and then turns around and sells them, claiming they're lost.

Anyway, I told him that if he ever called back again and I answered the phone, the nanomites I had created while supposedly just playing around on the computer and being lazy would target the unique sound waves of his voice and travel whatever distance to get to him, infiltrating his nervous system and causing his brain to explode.

He hung up really quickly after that, though I'm not sure if it was because I had frightened him with a story, or if he just thought I was insane. And I don't know if it was him calling back, because I didn't answer the phone.

I wonder if he watches Stargate...

Maybe I should have told him about the squadron of squirrels that are now a part of my forces to take over the world...

Phone rang again; this time my nephew answered it and it was my aunt. She just wanted to know how my car was running.

You know what I've noticed about the quizzes on quizila and the like? There's never enough responses to a question. They're all built upon stereotypes of a particular trait, and even if it's for fun, it's kind of annoying to try to do a "which character are you most like" quiz and to have the responses be so...obvious. Especially when they're all the same.

(This discounts the randomly generated memes which are meant to be amusing because they're so random)

What I'd like to see is a quiz done by someone who has actually sat down and analyzed the characters of a particular fandom. In fact, it would be a really neat idea to locate a Meyers-Briggs or other personality test and take it from the point of view of that particular character. Then, when making your own quiz, it'd be easy to just adjust the questions and find which answers would result in a particular character.

Not just the most obvious, topical characteristics that everyone sees in the characters.

On a similar note, I like these quizzes, but wish people could spell certain things right ;)

I need to make another squirrel icon with that saying...or no! I've got a better idea! *runs off to go make the icon, then runs back in*

You know? It could be even better if you take different characters from different fandoms, some of whom may have the same characteristics...it would make the quiz not only longer, but have more results to add to it. *Ponders this thoughtfully, then goes running off to make that icon*
