All in the name


Facebook has these silly quizzes that are always circulating: Which city do you belong in?  What kind of a dog would you be?  What kind of cocktail are you?  Which TV mom would you be?  Let it be known that I do not participate.

But last night, a friend of mine completed one I hadn’t seen before: What should your parents have named you?

And the answer that it gave her?  ANNIE.

And then!  The description of girls with the name Annie: You are nice, caring, and you love being with your friends.  Boys drool over you and you are hot stuff.

You know it, Facebook.

    I know we’ve only met via the blogging world, but based on your blogs I’d say the description for your name is completely accurate! :)

    it would be funny if it told everyone that they should be named Annie. The one I took was “What City Should You Live In”. It said Seattle. But it told everyone I know who took it “Seattle”.

    So, I should have been named Annie and live in Seattle.

    I think it’s a conspiracy. And you’re behind it.

    See? A brainless binary code and a few probability tables and algorythms knows us better than anyone.

    I took the “which Starwars Character Are You” quiz and it said R2-D2. I’m not convinced that just any computer program can tell me who I am. It looks like the computer got it right for you though.
