What two words describe you?

I took one of those horrible Facebook quizzes that scrape your profile for every available bit of your personal information so that the creators of the quiz can sell it to marketers.[1] This is what it says about me. What will you discover if you take the quiz?[2]
I got Exhausted Parent. What two words describe you?

You haven't been completely rested for three and a half weeks, maybe longer. You're stressed out at work, drained by trying to keep up with your children at home, and overwhelmed by the rising tide of household chores and projects. You're actively hoping for some sort of horrible disaster to strike, because at least then you'd be able to stop and rest. An axe-wielding homicidal rampage isn't completely out of the question, though most of the time it sounds like too much work...

[1] No. No, I did not.

[2] Feel free to fill in your own answers in the comments. The original (on a friend's FB feed) was horribly, sickeningly sweet, and talked at length about the person's saintly virtues, but I know you can all do better than that...


  1. Allergy Sufferer

    I don't know what the heck is going on, but after having a "cold" for two weeks and then seeing that the tree pollen count here is super high, I'm suspicious. I never had allergies when I was younger, but here we are.

  2. Impoverished homeowner

    Let's I need to waterproof my basement, and replace my furnace. Before I can do either of those, I need to clear space for the workmen. In addition, I really, really, want to replace my fridge, washer, dryer, and oven. They all function, but they're well past their prime. I've managed the funds for the necessary repairs, but the optional stuff needs to wait.


Feel free to leave comments; it lets me know that people are actually reading my blog. Interesting tangents and topic drift just add flavor. Linking to your own stuff is fine, as long as it's at least loosely relevant. Be civil, and have fun!
