Two quizzes from Maria. One from weeks ago that I kept forgetting to put on here. A funny T-shirt spied in NY. Plus a rant and a thank you.
You Belong in London
A little old fashioned, and a little modern. A little traditional, and a little bit punk rock. A unique woman like you needs a city that offers everything. No wonder you and London will get along so well.
What City Do You Belong in?

Nope. Too cold. Too rainy. No London. But thanks.

Which American Cities Best Fit You?
Yup. That’s about right.
You scored as Chelsea.
Chelsea is an area in Lower Manhattan west of Park Avenue from about 30th Street to about 14th Street which includes the Flatiron District. It’s well known as a gay friendly area. It’s also really hip and upscale. It’s great place to shop for things for the home. If there is some kind of new innovative soap dish out you’re bound to find it here. There are a lot of good places to eat… but, the prices can be a little high. The bartenders in this area are some of the best in the city and they know how to make everything. When some new drink comes out you can bet it came from Chelsea! The only draw back is the entire place is crawling with yuppies. But if you’re a yuppie that’s probably Okay.

Chelsea 83%
Alphabet City 72%
SoHo/TriBeCa 67%
Upper West Side/Morningside Heights 67%
Hell’s Kitchen/Theatre District 61%
Stuyvesant Town 61%
Inwood 56%
Harlem 50%
Kips Bay 50%
El Barrio 45%
China Town 28%
Upper East Side 22%
Financial District/Battery Park 17%
Washington Heights 11%

A note about TriBeCa: I was seriously embarrassed for the mess of people interviewed during the TriBeCa Film Festival who couldn’t tell you what “TriBeCa” meant. Worse, even, was that the show doing the story (some Entertainment Tonight-type show) got it wrong, saying, “It’s short for the Triangle shape the district makes!”
Morons. That takes care of “Tri.” You just need to look at your little map to come up with “Be” and “Ca.” Sheesh!
Oh, and thanks for all the support and love on the panic attack stuff. I’m doing better. Need some more time. I’m taking it. Yay!

    Ack! London and Philadelphia!!!
    So, exactly place where I live and the place where I grew up. In other words, if I lived anywhere else I’d be less happy. Clever and worrying, in a way.

    American Cities That Best Fit You:
    55% Atlanta
    55% Honolulu
    55% San Francisco
    50% Austin
    50% Boston
    Los Angeles? Not in the top five.
    However, the middling results pretty much mean I’d be happy living almost anywhere, I guess.

    That was fun! I’ve never really given thought to the various questions that ‘test’ asked.

    So, I am meant only to live in one city, not two, three…but one.
    It is ……..Paris!!! ohmygawd! I would so live there.

    See, now I feel like if we don’t move to LA, we’ll end up in Portland…which (according to my Portland-based friend) is a quick flight away from LA. ;o)

    Well damn, I didn’t even GET Portland! San Francisco came up on-top…doesn’t surprise me.
