    Are you quirkyalone? Want to be?

    Yet another social label. Why do people need to assign a label to every type of living situation? If it were up to me, I would just stick with the choices on my tax return...

    Single
    Married
    Common-law

    Or maybe it's just me.

    Per my aside on the Budgie thread, I scored quite high-sadly enough

    87??? But some of the questions did not have my answer... such as, going to the movies to possibly meet a cute girl...

    From the site:

    Your score was 104. Very quirkyalone.
    Relatives may give you quizzical looks, and so may friends, but you know in your heart of hearts that you are following your inner voice. Though you may not be romancing a single person, you are romancing the world. Celebrate your freedom on National Quirkyalone Day, February 14th!

    97 - same analysis as Dan. I don't understand what QA means and the score interpretation is bogus.

    I prefer the "human touch" and am not offended by the jcrew couple.

    How quirkyalone are you?

    New high score 120.

    I would argue that I am not following my inner voice, as it is currently either hoarse from yelling at me to do something or is handcuffed with a ball gag in its mouth.
    Too lazy to beat myself up for being to lazy to beat myself up for being too lazy to... well you get the point....

    But I am J-Crew people...

    Apparently I'm one of those mysterious “quirkytogethers,” which sounds about right for me and the significant other .

    Your score was 64. Somewhat quirkyalone (otherwise known as quirkytogether):

    You are probably part of a mysterious group of people, the quirkytogethers. You share many of our quirky qualities, but you manage to find yourself, on a regular basis, in a coupled situation. Interesting.
    Mmmmm...okay. I just thank my lucky stars that I found someone as eccentric as I am to spend the rest of my life with.

    I got a 42....not sure what that means....my pop-up blocker blocked the explaination I guess.

    I got a negative 3467RH72QB, meaning you don't want to get mixed up with a guy like me Dottie....I'm a loner Dottie, a Rebel....

    I don't have to take a test to know that I am quirky and alone.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
