A Saint I Ain't...

...but according to this quiz, I'm like Saint Andrew, patron saint of a country I ache to visit (Scotland), of my parents' village in Portugal, and ALSO of singers, sore throats, happy marriages, AND spinsters!

(How all those fit in with one another, I've no idea, but I'm a singer-who-wants-to-get-back-to-singing, I've been experiencing sore throats and, as things stand, I'm riding hell for leather down Spinster Road, so it does all rather seem to fit me.)

Gawd, I luuuuurve taking quizzes, it's so fascinating to learn what these arbitrary responses on my part reveal about me and the inner workings of my psyche, according to some stranger whose credentials, if any, are shrouded in mystery.

:-)

Anyway, it occurs to me that, if I were to be a patron saint of stuff, it'd probably be:

  • Ex-smokers and/or folks trying to quit.
  • Mothers of teenagers who think they're smarter than their moms (so, like, every teenager ever).
  • Lovers of Duran Duran, Depeche Mode, and Blondie.
  • Folks who chuckle/snort over a solid pun.
  • Peeps who obsess over other peeps to the point that they can't focus on the things they need to be doing with their lives and seem to require repeated boots to their bottoms to aid them in getting their respective (and collective, if applicable) shit together.

Or similar.

How about y'all: of what would YOU be a patron saint???

    LOL! Yeah, I'm not there yet so I may need to call upon you now in preparation :-)

    If I were a patron saint, it'd be of quietly talented, the working underprivileged and the chicks who just want a good bottle of wine :-)

  2. I'd be the patron saint of procrastinators and grammar nerds.

    Took the quiz, and I'm Saint James the Less. Whatever. The Less.

  3. I'd probably be the patron saint of couch potatoes or something awesome like that.

    I love these kind of quizzes, too, and I've taken a lot of them lately. I discovered that I am Animal the Muppet, the Incredible Hulk, River Tam, and Willa Wonka.

    1. I'd have thought you more a Swedish Chef type, but go figure. ;-)

  4. Aren't those quizzes fun? I got St. Andrew too. And probably because I chose dark blue and Scotland as part of my answers.

    I'd be the patron saint of all things sparkly. :D

  5. I have difficulty with quizzes because I so often find that I can't honestly pick any of the multiple choice answers as being applicable to me. So what I invariably learn from quizzes is that I'm an utterly hopeless misfit. ;)

  6. This was a fun read. ;)

    I'd probably be the patron saint of Smashing Pumpkins fan clubs/groups, Bailey's Irish Cream creators, people who combine ice cream with all manner of spirits (and even experiment with red wine), and ummm ... cat lovers!

  7. Personality quizzes are always so much fun to take. (I even procrastinated the other night with some of them, haha.) Not sure what I'd be the patron saint of, but it'd probably include insomnia, pessimism, and comics... XD
