oh dear

(Edited to add: This is in honor of Edward Gorey's birthday, which Sam reminds me is today...)

I found this quiz on a knitting blog I hadn't read before, and I had to take it. In 10th grade my friend Caroline & I were obsessed with Edward Gorey. I think she may have had a poster of the Gashlycrumb Tinies up on her wall. Many many years later I directed a summer research project on Gorey with a fabulous student; I keep waiting for her to publish something from it, but she's holding back. In any event, I'm not sure I agree with this result--but then again, knowing how most of these little stories go, this may be one of the better results.

Don't Trip
You will be smothered under a rug. You're a little

anti-social, and may want to start gaining

new social skills by making prank phone

calls.
