The Test:
http://www.auntyacid.com/2015/12/06/which-time-period-do-you-belong-in/


Me:

Medieval Ireland

You belong in Medieval Ireland (400–1400 AD). You value tradition, family, and honor. You are strong and resilient, and you believe in doing what's right. There is a softness inside of you, but you reveal that only to those closest to you. Hard work and equality are essential to you, and you're not afraid to roll up your sleeves to get the job done.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

my preferred eras these days are predominantly F&I War, Fur Trade, pre-Civil War, and Steamy Victorian.

Good morning,ladies and gentlemen.
You belong in Ancient Rome (753 BC–476 AD). Powerful, confident, and bursting with passion, you are a force to be reckoned with! You value cleanliness and order, and you know how to get a job done. You strive for excellence, and you're always looking for ways to improve yourself. You might be hard-working and serious, but boy, do you know how to throw a party.

I remain yours,

Hmm, hit a problem with the first question - what do you buy at the yard sale? There isn't an option for everything. (I could convert the cigarette case into a holder for sleeping draught darts - you never know when they will come in handy...)

Yours,
Miranda.

Edit - the results are in:

"You belong in Renaissance Italy (1300–1500 AD). There is nothing you treasure more than beauty and intelligence. You love learning new things, and you enjoy a good challenge. You appreciate the past, but you're eager for new discoveries. You are cultured, passionate, and refined. "

Not at all sure about that last bit   Wink

Anyway, Chicar - many thanks for sharing.

You belong in Revolutionary America (1765–1783 AD). You are strong, scrappy, and brave. When you set a goal, you're willing to do whatever it takes to achieve it. You believe in goodness and equality, and you're willing to suffer today to make tomorrow better. You value tradition, but you're eager to try and do new things.

Somewhat close to the trruth, I suppose.

Victorian England.

You belong in the Victorian era (1837–1901 AD). Proper and poised, you are full of grace, charm, and beauty. You appreciate the finer things in life, and you value high morals. Some might think you're a snob - but you can't help it if you have class! When the setting is right, you like to loosen your corset and have a good time, but that's your little secret.


Not sure about "Proper and poised, you are full of grace, charm, and beauty" - more like "Rough as a badger's arse, but look good enough wearing a top hat and morning coat"...  Wink

The questionnaire placed me in Revolutionary America. As a devout Monarchist, I can only assume the questionnaire hates me for some reason...

You could still be a Monarchist in Revolutionary America - just not very popular!

I daresay this means something significant. Once I've had my coffee, I'll thinkabout it.

I was beginning to think there were only about five or six possible answers, but mine came back as "You belong in the trade delegations to Japan during the Meiji Restoration.  You are not afraid of death, but you are pretty much afraid of everything else.  You think you can master languages of all types with little preparation, but you are about to learn otherwise.  Indoor plumbing means a great deal to you; but you make poor life decisions that ignore this very integral personal goal."

I tried it again, deliberately choosing an odd mix ( well, odd to me) of the following choices:
SILK SCARF
MINIMALIST HOUSE
IT IS BY WAY OF PAIN ...
WHO NEEDS CELL PHONES
GRILLED FISH
LOOSE AND COMFY OUTFIT
JEWELS
FOX


at it produced this:

You belong in Feudal Japan (1185–1573 AD). Nothing matters more to you than pride, honor, and refinery. You are elegant, graceful, and a lover of nature. You value the arts, but you're a fighter too. History and tradition matter greatly to you, and you hold tight to the past. You are gentle and cautious, but strong and resilient.

the mind boggles....

I got Victorian England. Perhaps it was picking the townhouse and pocketwatch that did it?

Also, monarchists weren't *that* uncommon in revolutionary America. Though they generally moved north.

Anyway, I did it again, this time picking the stew instead of the pastry, and got Medieval Ireland.

Think of the cupcakes with green shamrock icing that you could make!  Since I got medieval Ireland as well, I'd certainly be a customer of your bakery!
