Two quizzes, both of which are stunningly accurate.

What book are you? (hat tip to Christopher)

What's your eating style? (hat tip to my junk mail box)

You're The Great Gatsby!

by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Having grown up in immense wealth and privilege, the world is truly at
your doorstep. Instead of reveling in this life of luxury, however, you spend most of
your time mooning over a failed romance. The object of your affection is all but
worthless--a frivolous liar--but it matters not to you. You can paint any image of the
past you want and make it seem real. If you were a color of fishing boat light, you
would be green.

According to Tickle, I'm an "erratic eater."

Erratic eaters like you tend to have erratic schedules on the whole, and tend to ingest their biggest meals, and heartiest snacks during the evening and nighttime hours. While your evening meal is what you focus most on — and sometimes it can occupy much of your night — how much you eat and when you eat your meals varies day to day. Eating three square meals a day is not your style. Instead, you are the type of person who usually skips breakfast or grabs something small. You also eat lunch at erratic times as well. One day you may eat a good meal at noon, while the next you might grab a handful of crackers at 4pm with dinner at 6pm.

While it's great that you're flexible, there are a number of nutritional downfalls to this style of eating. For one, you body doesn't function well when it's starved of food, which it would be if you weren't eating til those 4pm crackers. Your pattern suggests that it can be hard for you to keep track of what you're eating because the timing and quantity changes from day to day.

How do you feel about being Gatsby? I feel like Ulysses comes close to me but sort of misses the mark.

Actually, I'm sort of tickled. Gatsby is one of the books that I try to re-read every year. I think there are a couple of ways it misses the mark...but mostly, I'd say it's spot on.

Perhaps, were I more discursive I'd be "À la recherche du temps perdu."
