inner monster quiz

Your Cute Monster Says Your Inner Demon is Sorrow


You're the type of person who stands out in a crowd, even when you're trying to blend in.
You are honest in your character and appearance. You don't pretend to be someone else.

You tend to get depressed easily.
People think you're cute because you're rebellious. Your uniqueness is charming.

five things #143

Five things that didn't happen aboard the Odyssey in Unending (but Teal'c told someone they did)

that daniel and mitchell wrote the novels they had always wanted to write.

sam had become a very good cook.

vala told them about all of her "misadventures & misdemeanors" ("the felonies too" daniel had added.) because she was sure they would be stuck there beyond the statute of limitations.

that teal'c himself mastered the yo-yo. (he's pretty sure no one believes this one)

they all played pranks to ease the tension of being cooped up. teal'c thought one of the best was one of the ship's corridors filled with soap foam.

what kind of cat are you?

You Are a Persian Cat


You are very high-maintenance, at least as far as keeping up your appearance goes.
But you're surprisingly low-maintenance in every other aspect of your life.

You are peaceful and sweet tempered. People enjoy your company.
You are loving and a good companion, but it takes you a while to trust people.

archersangel writes: “speaking of doughnuts; any opinion on cake vs. yeast-raised doughnuts? or did i miss that?” Answer: I prefer yeast-raised because you can cram more into your mouth.

five things #142

Five things Daniel found amongst his belongings after he descended that he could not explain

a dozen or so TV guides. since he rarely watches TV, daniel assumed he bought them for some article.

a kilt (university of chicago tartan). as far as he knows, daniel has no scottish ancestry. he assumed he wore it to a colleague's wedding.

a mix tape. since it's music that he never listens to, daniel assumed it was a gift from someone who didn't know what to get him.

a half dozen popular fiction paperbacks. since daniel prefers non-fiction, he assumed he got them from airport gift shops to read on planes.

50 dollars in canadian money. daniel's pretty sure he's never been to canada, so he has no explanation for that.


author's note--there is a university of chicago tartan; http://www.tartanregister.gov.uk/tartanD

(daniel studied at the university of chicago's oriental institute)

what does your pizza say about you?

Your Pizza Says You Like Many Foods


You have a hearty appetite. You are likely to complain if a restaurant has small portions.

You consider pizza to be bread... very good bread. You fit in best in the Midwest part of the US.

You like food that's traditional and well crafted. You aren't impressed with "gourmet" foods.

You are dependable, loyal, and conservative with your choices.

You are unadventurous and boring. You should consider staying home when taking a vacation.

The stereotype that best fits you is geek. You're the type most likely to order pizza to avoid leaving your computer.
