I hate stupid tests that are accurate...

I don't know why I took this one, except it fit my cynical mood. I was reflecting on why it doesn't seem like there is anyone out there who seems to work out as a romantic interest, mostly because I really want a best friend who is also a bit sensuous. So I took this stupid test, and got a fairly accurate portrait of myself. Right down to scaring people off. Stupid test. Stupid ideas of what I want. Stupid emotional profile.

The Sonnet
Deliberate Gentle Love Dreamer (DGLDf)

Romantic, hopeful, and composed. You are the Sonnet. Get it? Composed?

Sonnets want Love and have high ideals about it. They're conscientious people, caring & careful. You yourself have deep convictions, and you devote a lot of thought to romance and what it should be. This will frighten away most potential mates, but that's okay, because you're very choosy with your affections anyway. You'd absolutely refuse to date someone dumber than you, for instance.

Your exact opposite:
Genghis Khunt

Lovers who share your idealized perspective, or who are at least willing to totally throw themselves into a relationship, will be very, very happy with you. And you with them. You're already selfless and compassionate, and with the right partner, there's no doubt you can be sensual, even adventurously so.

You probably have lots of female friends, and they have a special soft spot for you. Babies do, too, at the tippy-top of their baby skulls.

A Charge of Artillery Officers

What would the collective be? I figure on charge, not as in "Charge of the Light Brigade," but charge as in artillery powder charge. Boom!

Here's an image of the Norfolk Light Artillery officers, with Gene Morrow's cannon. It's a wet-plate print on tin. (Yes, that's me in the middle.)
