Springtime for Jamie in Germany?

So I took the "Which Leader are You?" quiz online and the above was the result I got. Darek is like Bill Clinton, Bren is like Che Guevera and Jen G is frickin' Gandhi, and I end up with one of the most horrible men in history. I even re-did the test and got the same result. It was just like the time I was sorted into Slytherin on the Harry Potter website. It kinda sucks to be assumed evil--even if it's just by some frivolous web page. It doesn't help when your mother reminds you that you're an "animal" for not going with her to mass, and that ever since high school people like to kid that you're the devil or that you'll burst into flames if you walk into a church. I'm a good person dammit! Right? Anybody?

The part in the description that rings true is the "you focus on worst-case scenarios" segment. I just had this conversation with a friend who pointed out that I can be a really negative son-of-a-bitch. This is not to say that I go around calling people names or shitting on people's accomplisments but I'm usually the first to say a movie sucks. If you're buying something I think is a waste of money I'm gonna tell you. If a plan is getting too big and it seems like there are too many holes, I'll point it out. I bitch a lot come to think of it. And when it comes to people I usually assume the worst of them.

This makes me sound like a huge downer but I like to think I reflect the opposites as well. I may be more than willing to cut up a movie I didn't like, but I'm also the person who raves forever about the one they loved. If I rag on something a friend buys it isn't because I want to be a downer, it's because I know what it's like to look at something you bought 6 months ago and know it was a huge waste of money. I may bitch too much but I like to think it's just because I talk too much period; so my ratio of talking to bitching is about the same as most people in the end. I may assume the worst in people but I am also easily blown away by the smallest act of kindness.

So for this New Year I can't promise I won't whine or kvetch or gripe. I can't promise I'll give my thumbs up to your 60 dollar scarf that cost 35 cents to make, or not say anything snarky during Bad Boys 3, but what I can promise is that I will try to avoid becoming a vicious dictator bent on forging a super race.

Hey don't feel bad Jamie...I took the damn test too and they think I am closely matched to Hitler too! WTF?!? Momma K?!? Saftey Monitor Adrienne?!? Hitler?!? It doesn't add up.
There must be a glitch in the program! :P

By the way to the other readers I was the friend who pointed it out. I know I'm a JERK but I'm honest maybe sometimes too honest. But I love this guy still no matter how negative, cause its true Jamie lets you know about the other side and some of time hes right.

Secondly...what's wrong with forging a superior race? I mean...if you are superior...it only makes sense to find (white) people like you and forge away right? Right? Anyone?

Maybe not...
