    What's your signature city?

    Well, there's a quiz at http://www.emode.com/tests/signature...city/index.jsp where you can find out.

    My results?



    Dan, your signature city is Seattle

    Sleepless in Seattle? We don't think so. You may be laidback but that doesn't mean you're lacking in energy. Someone as adventurous and active as you is the perfect pairing with a city that's filled with fresh air, beautiful waterfront, snow-capped mountains, and plenty to do.

    With your lovable, down-to-earth personality, you'd be a perfect fit in a seaside city like Savannah. Maybe you enjoy taking life at your own leisurely pace — it is more civilized, after all. And who needs the breakneck hustle and bustle of the big city when you can kick your heels up in a clean, friendly, well-organized city?
    This doesn't surprise me...

    Savannah, too. Whew! Always this tiny fear that I might be placed up north somewhere...

    Signature City

    Your signature city is Austin

    Like your signature city, you're vibrant and have a spicy flair. Whether you're hanging out at a café or catching a new band, you're a friendly, people person who no doubt enjoys being out and about, but who also knows how to take it slow when the time is right.

    There must be something to this test, because Austin is a city I always figured I'd move to if I wasn't such an Oklahoman. Pretty cool!!

    Chris, your signature city is New York

    Whether you like to have lots of options at your fingertips or you like to be in a metropolitan environment that's buzzing with energy, the Big Apple is the perfect place for you. Maybe you like to mix and mingle at some of the edgiest restaurants, shops, and clubs in the world. Or maybe you like to be in the middle of it all — in the bright lights and big city.


    I'm surprised though that Austin made it onto the "signature city" list. Does cingular have a vested interest in them?

    Mine is New Orleans.

    You've got a "big easy" way about you and an infectious energy that's impossible to ignore. No wonder people love being around you. Like your signature city, you've got a finger on the pulse of just about anything — from music, to history, to food, to culture.

    I'm not too surprised, but I've lived there and wouldn't say it is my signature city.

    Another one for Seattle. I could picture myself there, though maybe not as my first choice.

    New York!
    I'm not so sure about the accuracy of this test. I figured I would be more of an Austin or Savannah type. Go figure.

    Well they told me New York and they are wrong.

    I think New York is a great city and would never disrespect it as anything less, but I have been to New York and would not like to live there.

    Oh well. I was hoping they would tell be the city I am in, but I guess no such luck. :-S

    Hmm

    It is kind of flawed in that only Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Austin, Savannah, and New York are the possible cities. So if your personality is conservative, you wouldn't get , let's say, Virginia Beach. Probably a Savannah.

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    'nother Seattle here. I woulda figured myself more suited for Portland as well. If you looked at the bottom of your 'results', you would of noticed that the cities listed were Seatlle, Sahvanna, New York, Austin, New Orleans, and LA(I think la). Kind of limitied 'winning' choices, eh?

    Duh, oluven(sp, sorry) beat me to this point. Please disregard!

    NYC....though in actuality it would be Boston.

    And I've never been there.

    It's A Fit!

    Although initially skeptical, I gave it a try...and it came back NYC!

    I was in the City for the 1st time in 25 years this past June and had a splendid time. Living there?

    Maybe when the kids are off and on their own, I can get that sub-basement space under the bodega on Avenue C for $3,900/month.......

    New York. I have never been any further east than Cleveland. I am a westerner. AZ, NM, CO, UT, TX, CA, NV and UT cover it for where I have been. I can however say that in my state, I have been to almost every town, and driven every highway 2 lanes or wider.

    THIS SURVEY SUCKS!

    I ended up with New Orleans.

    I was thinking more along the lines of the seemy underbelly of BERLIN during the LOVE PARADE!
