I Am Not Making This Up

Maybe my Big Sister (who's 5'4") is correct.

Your Famous Blogger Twin is Dave Barry

Funny, witty, and clever!
You always have a ton of offbeat links to share

While I have seen these around, for some reason, it took me seeing it on The Flying Space Monkey Chronicles to give in and click through. If you don't know what I'm talking about, well, I'll try to be brief.

My Big Sister (who's 5'4") has, since this blog started, has said a bunch of nice things about my writing. But she's my sister. Not that her opinion doesn't matter, but she's going to be influenced by things that no one else will. She'll get little things I say that might actually be funny, but you'd appreciate only if you knew the details, or some other little tidbit that gave it a twist. You know what I'm saying?

So, anyway, she always says nice things, but again, she's my sister, and will do that. Since we live 3-½ hours away from each other, she doesn't get tired of me like she used to long time ago. So, she's remembering the nice things about me. Or her memory's fading as she gets older. Or something.

Anyway, she has, since nearly day one, left comments comparing me to Dave Barry. I like Dave Barry. Well, I like reading Dave Barry. He might be an ass, for all I know. But he writes funny. And I like reading his stuff.

I've seen a lot of different sites with little boxes like the one above, with the image of whoever they compare to on that little quiz that you gotta take. Well, SpaceMonkey had a funny twist on it. And I clicked and took the little quiz. Now, I didn't like the quiz. Some of the questions were almost like "Do you still beat your wife?" There's no right answer to that one. So, I took it and answered it as close as to the truth as I could. But the "required reading" one gave a bunch of stuff I don't read.I only read three of those, and all three were in different groups. Anyway, it came back and said I was Dave Barry. But, if I had changed one or two answers to other selecions just as true, I would have come back as Moby or Wil Wheaton.

But, based on what I answered then, it compared me to Dave Barry. I disagree. But I thought I'd let my Big Sister (who's 5'4") know that at least an easily manipulated poll-bot agrees with her. I'm sure she appreciates that.

    Yes, The Big Sister (who is 5'4") does say nice things. Many of our conversations about basil (who is slightly taller than The Little Sister (who is 6')) have been remembering through your writings. I should mention, however, that yes she is getting old. It is 2005, remember...

    Bet I hear about that one...

  2. It didn't matter what selections I changed (where there was some leeway) I kept coming up as InstaPundit. Dang quiz is broken.

  3. Instapundit!?!?

    You realize you'll have to start signing your posts as "Evil Loren" don't you?

  4. "Indeed."

    But at least I don't blend puppies.


    (Someone slap me!)

  5. Although...when I changed an answer I also got Dave Barry. Much better.


  6. Barrypundit would be a good name for a rock band.

  7. I'm instapundit as well...not...but it looks as though everyone is instapundit...or dave barry.

  8. That's part of his evil plan. He wants everyone to be Instapundit. Resist! Resist I tell you!

  9. losers. There can be only one spacemonkey!
    Muwuahahahh! Hah! Ahem, yes.

    Oh, hooray! I was right! You have an interesting site, and I really like the stories the best. Good job, DAVE, uh, er, basil...

    The Mean Sister is....
