Swimming in molasses

I need to get horizontal again. I've been sitting up reading LJ for two hours and my head is spinning. However, I meme'd many and got more or less caught up. I am:


What Farscape Character are you?

and:

I'm Pope Stephen! Hurrah.
Which Historical Lunatic Are You?
From the fecund loins of Rum and Monkey.

I came out as Hal Clement in the "Which SF Author are you?" so it must skew to hard science authors.

rahirah said smart things about "House." Now to rest.

I've had people on my flist come up as James Tiptree, Jr. and Ayn Rand (who I guess could be considered an SF author, sort of). So far, though, it's been Hal Clement, E.E. "Doc" Smith and, of course, Heinlein (which is what I got).

Hmmm... I forgot to check to see if it would give a listing of all the possible authors at the end of the quiz. Some of them will do that.

I didn't check, either. It's funny, though, I was thinking of Hal Clement just the other day but I couldn't remember his name -- as soon as the quiz popped up, I went, "That's the guy I was thinking of!"

Rand did write one SF novella, Anthem. It's the only thing of hers I've read, and I recall thinking that its premise was dicey even back when I read it as an impressionable teen.

(I got James Tiptree Jr.)

I actually read Anthem back in fifth grade as part of my dystopia phase... I don't really recall much of it, except that I liked 1984, Brave New World, and The Sheep Look Up much better (I absolutely could not get through A Clockwork Orange no matter how hard I tried).

Silly Philosophical Novel, You Go Squish Now
I read Atlas Shrugged. I argued with the premises and the execution of the book all the way through. Ayn Rand me no likee.

I once read a "You Know You..." list that said, "You know you were an English major if you read Atlas Shrugged all the way through." I plead guilty as charged.

My browser is being persnickity again. Which Farscape character did you get? By the way, do you have the link to the SF author quiz?

I got Zhaan. I couldn't see the picture here, either. Phoo. I was hoping it was just me (sometimes they do that, and I can see them fine on Barb's machine).
