What Hairspray Character Are You?

Link and Tracy from HairsprayAre you familiar with the movie or musical Hairspray? I am a huge fan of the original movie, and I was delighted to learn that a musical version would be on television tonight. (I must admit that I haven’t seen the musical movie yet… should I?)

I love how this story is so colorful, funny, and interesting. The characters are so well drawn, and the music and dancing are so lively. I just knew this would be the perfect topic for a quiz, and I hope you agree.

Take What Hairspray Character Are You?, and let me know what you get! Also let me know which movie you’d like to see turned into a musical next!

What Kind of Takeout Food Are You?

What sort of takeout food best suits you?

Do you like takeout food? For me, it’s the ultimate indulgence because I don’t have to cook, clean, or even talk to a server 😉 I love to indulge in takeout this time of year, especially when the holidays are keeping me nice and busy.

While I wish I could tell you what inspired this latest quiz, I’m not really sure… I found it half finished in my files and decided to finish it! If I had to guess, I’d have to say it was my love of takeout. Or maybe I was just hungry at the time. Either way, give it go and let me know what you think: What Kind of Takeout Food Are You?

Do you also love to get takeout food? Let me know what your favorite type of takeout is and when you usually order it.

Where Should You Spend Thanksgiving?

Where should you spend Thanksgiving this year?

Happy Thanksgiving! Are you all set for the big day? I am! I am doing a very simple Thanksgiving dinner this year – only the classics. (As long as mac and cheese counts as classic.) I’m pretty easy to please on Thanksgiving… as long as I’m doing most of the cooking. What can I say? I like to set the menu.

If you ask me, I prefer to spend Thanksgiving at home… or at a relative’s house where they will let me run the show in the kitchen. Needless to say, I have some pretty fixed ideas about where I want to spend Thanksgiving 🙂 What about you?

Whether you’re sure about where you like to spend Thanksgiving or not, this quiz may still point you in the right direction: Where Should You Spend Thanksgiving? Who knows? Maybe you’ll find out that you should have been spending Thanksgiving some place else all these years!

Let me know what you get on the quiz and where you prefer to spend Thanksgiving. And I hope you have a happy Turkey Day!

New Quiz: The Apron Test

three aprons for cooking

What does your favorite apron reveal about you?

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! I’m just about ready to put on my apron to start some baking. This Thanksgiving we have a lot of other stuff going on, so we aren’t doing a full spread of food. (Translation: I am only making one pie instead of four pies.) Still, there is baking that needs to be done, and I’m excited to do it and get into the Thanksgiving spirit.

Today Mr. Blogthings and I will bake a pumpkin pie (confession: from frozen) and cornbread (confession: from a mix). Then tomorrow, I will make our traditional Thanksgiving morning donuts, which we always have while watching the parade on TV. And haha, yes, I make them from a mix as well. I do bake from scratch sometimes, but I’m not afraid of taking some shortcuts for Thanksgiving!

Whew! That’s a lot of baking, and just thinking about it got me into the baking / cooking spirit. I wrote a quiz for everyone who likes to bake and cook. Or if you’re simply a fan of baking and cooking: The Apron Test

This quick quiz will tell you all about your cooking style, so let me know what you get. Also, let me know what you’re most looking forward to eating this year on Thanksgiving 🙂

What’s Your Bohemian Name?

If you were totally bohemian, what would your name be?

Are you a bohemian? I would not say that I am one by any stretch of the imagination, but I like a little bit of bohemian influence in my home decor and fashion 🙂 And I think bohemian names are really cool, even if I don’t have one!

Today’s quick quiz was inspired by modern bohemian names, and if you’re anything like me, I think you’ll get a kick out of it. Try out a new bohemian name for size: What’s Your Bohemian Name?

Let me know what you get, and what you think of your totally boho name. Do you consider yourself a bohemian in any way?

Which Bennet Sister Are You?


Are you a big Jane Austen fan? I definitely am, and I try to write as much Jane Austen based quizzes as I can. Despite Blogthings having quite a few Jane Austin quizzes, I was remiss in writing a Pride and Prejudice based quiz. Until today!

While I can’t say that I have a favorite Jane Austen work, Pride and Prejudice is a book I love to revisit again and again. The world of the Bennet sisters is just too compelling to ignore, and given how many movies and series have been based on the book, I suppose others agree 🙂 If you are looking for a little Pride and Prejudice kick, then check out my latest quiz: Which Bennet Sister Are You?

Take the quiz, and let me know what you get. Does it match who your favorite Bennet sister is?

New Quiz: The Purse Test

6 basic purse shapes

Which purse would you pick? And what does it say about you?

Are you an admirer of nice purses? I am. I feel like a good bag can really elevate a plain outfit, and of course, I like to have something nice to put all my stuff in. A good purse is so pricey these days that I find myself doing a lot more dreaming than actual shopping. So needless to say, this seemed like the perfect topic to write a quiz about!

What does your taste in purses say about you? Take The Purse Test to find out. This quiz gives you fashion based outcomes, so it’s a great way to learn all about your style!

Take The Purse Test, and let me know what you get. Does it match your personal style? I’m also curious to know what your favorite purse is like. My favorite purse is a big brown faux leather “bowling bag” style that has lasted for years 🙂

Happy Election Day! Get Your Political Name :)

Find out your Republican and / or Democrat name for election day!

Happy election day! Whew! We all made it 🙂 Or at least we will have after tonight.

I wanted to do something special for the election, but like many of you, I am so sick of politics. So what I did this year was write a couple political name generators. If you’re more of a Republican type, check out:What’s Your Republican Name? Consider yourself a Democrat? Then I’ve got: What’s Your Democrat Name?

Or of course, what I recommend is taking both of these quizzes, just for fun.

In case you were wondering where I got the Republican and Democrat names from, I took them from this nifty infographic summing up some research 🙂

Comment and let me know what you got. And let me know if you already voted this year! I voted early hoping to avoid the lines, but I got stuck in a line anyway.

Have You Already Voted? Then Take These 5 Quizzes

Have you already voted? I voted early this year, but now I’m not sure what to do with all of that election energy 😉 Are you in the same boat? Quizzes to the rescue!

New Quiz: What Does Your Halloween Say About You?

What does your Halloween reveal about your personality?

Happy Halloween to all my Blogthings friends! Does anyone have any spooky plans? I am finishing up a mini horror movie marathon tonight, but otherwise I’m just chilling this year. Oh, and of course writing and taking Halloween quizzes!

I will be the first to admit that I’m pretty unmotivated this Halloween – maybe it’s because it’s been an unusually warm fall. I didn’t even put my decorations out. However, I just started to feel in the Halloween spirit this morning, thanks to a particularly cool and foggy start to the day.

What about you? What kind of Halloween are you having this year? What Does Your Halloween Say About You? Take this quiz to find out! This is one of those fun scenario quizzes that many of you have been requesting that I do again, and I had a great time writing it.

Comment and let me know what you get – as well as what your Halloween plans are, if you have any!
