Things swiped Appropriated from Around the Blogosphere

My new neighbors like to blast bad music until 5:30 am, singing along of course (off-key), and clapping along as well (off beat). At least that's what they've done the past two nights. So I'm not exactly high-functioning at the moment. Please accept these recycled ideas in lieu of an actual post.

From The Happy Feminist, a quiz which determines which of Henry VIII's wives you are most like.


Which of Henry VIII's wives are you?
this quiz was made by Lori Fury

"Congratulations! You are Katherine Parr.
Katherine Parr spent nearly her whole life married to crotchety old men: Henry was the THIRD old fart she was forced to marry. Is it any wonder she turned to books and religion to occupy her time?

Katherine wasn't just smart, she was a tiny bit uppity, too: she almost got herself thrown in jail for arguing with His Royal Fatness about some theological issues. After Henry croaked, Katherine dropped the prim and proper act and married Thomas Seymour, a handsome, dashing pirate kind of guy who was also as dumb as a post.

Which goes to show you that even bookworms know how to get it on."

From Mythago, an explanation of the way Rape Shield Laws work. She's also linked a super-fun video.

Well done! Katherine was definitely the best of them.

AW, I was so relieved to be the one that got out alive that I barely even considered the very cool bookwormy-uppityness part of her.

Yes, I think I'm very happy with this one.
