1930's Housewife [Jun. 9th, 2008|01:30 pm]
terribleturnip
That meme quiz that's going around about what kind of 1930's era housewife you'd make -- I know it will come as a shock to no one that I rated as a Failure, an 11 for those of you keeping score.

However, interestingly enough, I rated "Far Superior" as a 1930's HUSBAND. Which figures.

Although, honestly, it was a lot easier to be a husband. Have a job, don't pick your butt at the dinner table, don't call your wife a big fat ugly loser...and you're IN as husband of the year....sheesh.

so here's a total side topic... TWD and i are still looking for renaissance-ish looking posters to hang on our walls. we're looking at art reproduction sites for ideas and i come across this painting. i stared and stared at it, and i'm like "who does this remind me of?" then i realize it reminds me of you.

hopefully you like it and aren't like, "THAT ugly thing?!" *g* anyway. i think it's amazing. you probably won't be able to see the likeness because people usually don't see the likeness in themselves. e.g., i look absolutely nothing like Nicole Kidman, but i've been told so on separate occasions. (in what dreams?!) but i digress ... this painting made me think of you so i thought i'd share.

I see what you mean -- and that dark blob by her thigh could be Percy.

I know exactly what you mean! I can't count the times someone in the audience has blurted out, "Oh my God! Are you really Scarlett Johansson?"

Because strictly speaking, in a integer sense, you can't count to zero.

It totally reminds me of me. The artist said "look innocent and coy, darling" and that was the best she could do. You can just see her thinking "as if I would ever clasp my hands like this" and "are we done yet?"

Nicole Kidman, Scarlett Johansson...lucky girls. People are always asking me if I'm that cashier up at the Giant on Randolph Road....

*LOL* that is too true. kinda like the underwear models who perch themselves on the edge of the couch in some of the most awkward poses ever, whose expressions say clearly, "TAKE THE DAMN PICTURE! I'M FALLING OFF THE SOFA!!!" :D

It's not quite that simple -- you also have to put your razor away, have adequate life insurance, and make sure you satisfy your wife in bed. (!)

I'm not sure how to interpret this -- but I scored about the same, and quite highly (90+), answering as either husband or wife. Would that be Depression Metrosexual or something?
