There are so many things you can do to waste time when you have so many other much more important things waiting to be done. Like take a goofy quiz. And that’s exactly what I decided to do this morning.
I took the Zimbio quiz- Which TV mom are you? As is usually the case with these quizzes, I was wishing for the option to write in my own answer. It goes without saying that I wasn’t expecting a perfect match.
And my TV mom alter ego is-
Soooo, although I love Lorelai Gilmore of Gilmore Girls fame, I don’t see myself as being much like her. I would love to have her quick wit and fit body. And owning an inn sounds like fun. Stars Hollow is my dream home town. How could it not be?? What other town has its very own troubadour? Also, Lorelai seems much more confident and fearless than I am!
While Rory is a dream child, I would definitely keep my own. They are as quick with the quips as Rory, which they inherited from their father. And although they are not Ivy League scholars, they are successful and awesome people in their own right! Yes, they are very dear to me so I would want to keep them!
Curious what my results would be elsewhere, I searched for other quizzes about TV moms. My answers varied from Marge Simpson (The Simpsons) to Tami Taylor (Friday Night Lights).
Marge Simpson- Endowed with the patience of a saint, you know for a fact that that pious dimwit Flanders has nothing on you! Now, things might not always go your way, but you’re the voice of reason in chaos and your disapproving groan has no doubt saved lives! Brainfall
Tami Taylor- You’re not only the most rational head in your family, but you’re one for the community as well. You’re deep commitment to your family outshines everything you do, which is why you believe in putting up a united front with your partner when it comes to handling your children. You believe that raising children is a partnership — a push-pull where both partners have their chance to shine. In the wise words of Tami Taylor, “You’re gonna win or you’re gonna lose. Either way the sun’s still gonna come up tomorrow morning.” Popsugar
I guess it could have been worse, right? And giving it more thought, I concluded that Lorelai was a loving mom who would do anything for her child and that’s definitely not a bad thing. Besides, while in the middle of my Gilmore Girls binge watching, she has delivered some memorable quotes-
- “We’re almost there & nowhere near it. All that matters is that we’re going!” (Lorelai)
- “I need caffeine. Whatever form you’ve got. I haven’t had any all day. I’ll drink it, shoot it, eat it, snort it, whatever form it’s in. Gimme.” (Lorelai)
- “My life stinks. Hey, let’s look into each other’s eyes and say, ‘I wish I were you’ at the exactly same time…..maybe we’ll pull a ‘Freaky Friday’ ” (Lorelai)
- “As long as everything is exactly the way I want it, I’m totally flexible.” (Lorelai)
- “I’m not broke. Maybe just a little chipped.” (Lorelai)
While it’s been nice dreaming about drinking coffee and dashing off witty one-liners, it’s time for me to get back to those pesky little things that are still waiting to be done around the house.
Have you ever gotten a wacky result or one so eerily accurate it gives you chills when taking those silly quizzes? Come on- you must taken at least one quiz! Everyone does, right?
