And the Self-Discovery Continues

You Are a Playwright

You are a highly literate wordsmith. You love both reading and writing.

You are also a natural storyteller. You can turn a mediocre anecdote into a riveting tale.

You find people and all aspects of life fascinating. No topic is off limits for you.

In modern times, you would make a good filmmaker or novelist.

What's Your Medieval Profession?

I just found this quiz here, and I was sort of hoping to get "cartographer" like she did, but honestly, playwright is just as good, and probably more accurate, since my maps are more story-ish than scientific.

So here's a story for you, to go with that picture at the top:

I worked in Orlando briefly one year, and my brother came to visit. He's much younger than I am (well, 13 years younger, as opposed to my sister, who is 31 years younger, so young is relative, but I digress...). At the time, he was about 12 or 13.

I took him to some crazy museum - I think it was the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum - and in the gift shop, they had these fake skulls for sale. I turned my back to look at something, and when I turned around again, my little brother was standing in the middle of the gift shop, skull in hand, looking in its eyes and saying, yes, you guessed it (speaking of playwrights):
Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him!

I got astrologer! Well, to be honest I was trying to stack it to come up with Witch in the woods, but this is close enough. Maybe I should try it again and see what comes up when I don't try to influence the outcome.

Okay, I got playwright, too.

I guess we'll have to set up rival playhouses.

Deal! Or better, let's just collaborate...
