Punctuation Mark meme...

From brdwaybebe:


Your Score: Semicolon


You scored 30% Sociability and 76% Sophistication!



Congratulations! You are the semicolon! You are the highest expression of punctuation; no one has more of a right to be proud. In the hands of a master, you will purr, sneering at commas, dismissing periods as beneath your contempt. You separate and connect at the same time, and no one does it better. The novice will find you difficult to come to terms with, but you need no one. You are secure in your elegance, knowing that you, and only you, have the power to mark the skill or incompetence of the craftsman. You have no natural enemies; all fear you. And never, NEVER let anyone tell you that you cannot appear in dialogue!

Eee, semi-colons are my favorite form of punctuation! I'm jealous!

Apparently I'm a hyphen. Which, if I do say so myself, is pretty much the dumbest thing one could be.

And what exactly is a hyphen supposed to be? Don't be so hard on yourself, I use them all the time. (Except I didn't in this comment... but neither did I use a semi-colon... There! There's one.)

Oh I was just kidding. :) I totally abuse hyphens. I just think they're boring because they're just a little line, haha.

My result? The Dash! Which totally sounds like a superhero name to me! ;-)

Would you be like The Flash? What exactly would your powers be?

Would I be the Reed to your Johnny? ;)

Dash on!

But, wait...I have blue eyes. Does that make me more of an ever-lovin' blue-eyed Thing? *giggles*

And you sound more like Dr. Doom than Mr. Fantastic... You have no natural enemies; all fear you. ;-)

It's a cool gig. 'Cause who wouldn't want 'genius intellect' and 'diplomatic immunity' on their villainous resumé?

Oh, and how about that super-awesome, super-succinct to-do list:

1. Kill Reed Richards.
2. RULE THE WORLD!

Hah! Me too.

*snobs all over everybody*

It's funny, because that actually IS my favorite punctuation mark. Though I try not to abuse it.

I love semi-colons! They're so misunderstood.

*off to take the test*

I'd be surprised if you didn't get the same answer as me on that thing! But, be sure to let me know... :)

I was semicolon too, but I squeaked by with only 23% sociability.
I think they just gave it to me because I'm always over-using semicolons; I've built up a cachet with that particular punctuation mark.

Awesome vocabulary, ftw! I knew there was a reason I liked you... ;)

LMAO
I'm an exclamation point. My life makes sense now. :)
I love these quizes. You could find out just about anything in them and it is always entertaining (except for the one that tells you the date you're going to die and how, which was just plain creepy).

LOL! You do strike me as an exclamation point! And I never took the death one... O_o

Don't!

I'll be forever freaked out about October 27th. Apparently, I'll die on Friday October 27th 2062. I made my little cousin promise to check on me if that day ever does arrive because you can never be too careful. lol

Y'know, I either overuse semicolons, or I overuse parentheses. I can never really balance them... but I have to say I like semicolons the best, 'cause they look cool. Heck - they ARE cool. :)

And I'm a dash!
htbthomas

I'm the queen of ellipses as well as evil!cliffies. I rarely actually use the semi-colon, but I will agree that they look cool. :)

My twin-sis-on-the-net, bistyboo1974 (although obviously we're fraternal twins) is a dash, too! You should join her "Justice League" or something...

I dunno... Two dashes on one team makes somebody redundant. And then the writers kill that person off. Except that person comes back later because they didn't actually die, it was just a clone or a cosmic duplicate or a shapeshifter or a robot or something. Then when they come back their powers are different somehow and they're no longer really redundant. And this has stopped making sense, so I'll just shut up.

Could you be the dark side to her... she could be "Em-Dash" and you could be "En-Dash"... imagine the epic battles...
