Is there anything more fun and, let’s face it, accurate than a Facebook quiz?
Wait a sec… yeah you’re right. There are lots of things more fun and accurate. From predicting the time of our death (April 17, 2048) to letting us know who we were in a past life (Cleopatra) to telling us what kind of tree we are (Pink Dogwood) Facebook quizzes are typically a colossal waste of time and energy.
And yet… sometimes… I just can’t stop myself.
So when I see this quiz that will tell me which character from Friends I am I can’t resist. I begin the quiz in earnest, answering each new question with as much insight and honesty as I can. For years I have been convinced that I am Rachel. Carefree career gal who knows her own mind and can make it on her own, Rachel is Mary Tyler Moore for a new generation and I adore her.
I sure hope I’m Rachel!
But then I have to be honest with myself. There is a whole lot of Monica in me. A bit OCD with an insecure, awkward and overweight teenage girl living inside, I admit to liking things “just so” and will have trouble falling asleep if they are askew. Also, I love to cook and get a bit obsessive with the preparation of feasts and such.
I bet I’m Monica.
And then there’s Phoebe. Who am I kidding? I channel dead people and believe that cats can communicate with me. Plus I tend to make up weird song lyrics, mostly about bodily functions. (I would expand on this, but might lose my PG rating. But seriously, I wrote one that is eerily similar to her classic “Little Black Curly Hair”).
So yeah, for sure. I must be Phoebe.
When it comes down to it I can tell that I am a mix of all three. The confidence that I lack as Monica I gain from my inner Rachel who knows I can do anything I set my mind to. And the Monica in me keeps me organized and cleans my house, taming my inner control freak that really wants to be in charge of everything. Phoebe swoops in and my career path becomes all about Angels and Past Lives and crazy Woo Woo stuff. Suddenly I am that crazy hippy chick who doesn’t seem so crazy anymore.
Yeah. I’m Phoebe.
I push the button that will finally, inexorably settle the dilemma once and for all: Click here for your results…..
Yeah. I’m Joey.
Apparently, Brenda doesn’t share food.
How YOU doin’?
