What type of wife are you?

Screamed a friend’s FB post this morning.

The question scared me, to be honest. She, of course, is a ‘Super Wife’. Knowing her, I don’t doubt it, for a minute. Knowing myself, I would not even try it. Why would I ask FB to certify me as a really lazy wife more addicted to her blog and books than looking after every single need of her husband?

But seriously, these quizzes, who thinks them up? I am tempted to try them out, just to find out the kind of questions they ask, but dread doing it – I would hate for all my FB friends to get notifications of how I found this ‘wonderful’ quiz/application. So good wife or not, you can see, that I am a very cautious FBer. These days, I log into FB just to play Scrabble, thanks to Nu( Nu, You got me re-addicted to Scrabble!, I am just thankful, it is not Farmville).

So, as I was saying, do you take this quizzes? Are they fun? As someone who steers clear of all these ‘quizzes’ and questions that analyze various aspects of our personality, I find it quite odd that so many of my friends do seem to take part in them. Is it just something to do when we have nothing to do? I don’t think anybody would take these quizzes seriously, do you?

The last couple of days, have been so very boring, stuck at home, thanks to bad weather! I almost got tempted to start playing Farmville again or take one of those inane quizzes to relieve the boredom. If only I could though! In addition to everything else that happens when it snows, like making stepping out impossible, driving dangerous, we also lost our TV and broadband signals! For a while we felt all cut-off – like living in an island – all alone! OK, I exaggerate, but it was disconcerting. Can you imagine how it is? One moment, you are surfing channels trying to see which other part of the country had worse weather than us, and the next thing you see is a blue screen stating that the satelite signal is unavailable! Does that even happen any more?I mean, years ago, when we only had DD, I remember how a storm could change the direction of the antenna – but these days? Apparently it does happen.

Thankfully, we still had signal on our phones and internet working on them – how could we survive otherwise?

I had a post half-written on snow, with pics and all, but with this latest onslaught of heavy snow showers, I have decided to show my protest by not taking any more snow pics, until better weather comes our way. Just to let you know, we have over a foot of snow outside, schools canceled( let me not even go into details of how tough it is to entertain someone who wants to be in school) and all of us are busy sneeezing or coughing(making snowmen/snow balls out of the question). I mean, if we had to have bad weather, why can’t we have it when we are all healthy and fit?

And yes, wading in snow, is not a pleasant experience, playing those quizzes on FB, suddenly sounds so inviting!

    • yeah I too thank god that I’m not addicted to farmville or something… Scrabble is much better and I told you the logic the other day ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Oh the Fb quizzes are fun in terms of reading the questions..took few some time back and it is nothing but useless stuff ๐Ÿ™‚ I mean a answer which says your fav colour is black can predict how many babies you’ll have !! It’s that FUNNY ๐Ÿ˜€

      So for fun it’s okay ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I’ve taken some of these quizzes and the results are not even close to the truth.. but the questions are entertaining..

    But what kind of a wife are you is one quiz I wouldnt ever dare to take ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. We had oiur first flurries yesterday…. just flurries.. so all of us enjoyed it.. come xmas time.. its only going to get worse… aaah… oh well..at least i can say, i did have a white xmas!

    • Lucky you ๐Ÿ™‚ We are not supposed to have snow this early either – this time seems to be a record of sorts ๐Ÿ™‚

      White Xmas? We plan to be away during Christmas – weather allowing that is ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Thanks to these applications, now women can proudly call themselves facebook-certified wives.. haha.. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh yes ๐Ÿ™‚ Welcome here Blognostic.

    But, I am yet to see an husband playing ‘what kind of husband are you?’ game.

    That is true ๐Ÿ™‚ Wonder why ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Hmmm…I have never played any game on FB and have not taken any quizzes, because I am not sure what the answer might me and how embarrasing it will be for me, to know all my friends reading those stupid quiz answers about me on their FB page.. I am just scared and I find other ways to kill my boredom ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Like you, I don’t take online quizzes…I think they are silly…

    I couldn’t imagine spending even a couple of hours without TV or broadband…What would I do? Maybe, play Wii…

    I can manage fine without TV – but the mere concept of no broadband is scray ๐Ÿ™‚ Wii is a superb idea – why did we not think of that!

  6. It looks funny, these quizzes! But isn’t facebook dangerous. If anyone wants to know about you, they can just get the information from facebook. They can twist the information in any way, I was told. Is it true?

    I guess.. Which is why I guess, it is safer to put as little on it as possible..

    Yes, I have heard, snow covered landscape is beautiful to look at, but hard to live with it, for a long time. My friend’s daughter who lives in New Jersey says, these seasons, when people can’t step out of their house, tend to fight a lot in frustration, most of the time.

    Oh it looks lovely, but there is only so much we can do with all the loveliness around, you know. Poohi’s school has been closed since Wednesday – and it gets really boring for her to be at home.

    I loved the way you analyze things, Smitha! Very interesting.

    Thanks Sandhya – this was just a timepass post ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Ha ha ha! So, u wanna find out what kind of a wife u r , who were u in ur last birth etc.. ๐Ÿ˜› I hv steered clear of them too and even blocked most such apps, lest their updates occupy my entire page on FB ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

    Same here ๐Ÿ™‚

    I sooo want all that snow Smithu. I shud shud make a trip to ur place soon ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Come,come ๐Ÿ™‚ You will probably love it – it is gorgeous – but very annoying to be trapped indoors, you know.

  8. Oh dear….too much of snow and being quite cut off, entertaining children is certainly a diff situation. Hugs and take care.

    oh yes it is! And it does not help that all f us are still coughing and sneezing, so it is not too much fun at home ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    And I dont take any FB quizzes or use any application….I find most stuff useless….like :

    Same here ๐Ÿ™‚
    how many days are u living in this world – certainly u can use the brain and calculate, right – u dont fb to tell u that…

    which animal are you ???? – why do u ever want to know something like that ???

    which cartoon character are you ??? – we are already some cartoons in real life…

    which HP character are you ??? – this is really too much for me…

    when will u die ??? – this one is totally bugging.

    I keep in touch with my friends on FB. Thats it. Period. I dont like to do any of the other quizzes or stuff.

    That’s how it works for me too!

    When I read the title, I was totally shocked….you can be a diff person, but wife… ๐Ÿ™„

    LOL! I know- crazy stuff, and yet so many people take these quizzes ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. I’m not on FB so can’t say much for those quizzes but still i think its all useless and are not even close to reality…

    Wow for the snow… I so much want to come their right away…

  10. oh well O love those quizes when u have nothing else to do, they are fun and timepass… not be taken seriously at all but yeah fun

    oh that must be crazy, take care dear… how is poohi reacting to all this?

  11. I love quizzes on HP ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ to check my knowledge and kind of character ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    And entertaining Poohi @ home.. good luck Smitha ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ Make her to enjoy in home ๐Ÿ™‚ and take care..

  12. It’s snowing, I would love some ๐Ÿ™‚
    And regarding the quizzes and games, I’m very proud to say I haven’t played FV ever, nor the maphia but a game of two of scramble, lots of scramble and that’s it…

    The quizzes are funny! I have taken a couple of them ๐Ÿ˜‰ I try all the different combinations of options and find out which combination gives you a particular answer, it’s fun! nice passtime when there is absolutely no work! And always, there is an option of publish or not to ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

  13. The last vacation got me out of Farmville and I vow never to go here again!

    Same here! I have steered clear ever since ๐Ÿ™‚

    FB is good to keep in touch with close frnds and relations but their quizzes r funny. I think they are just means to get more info out of you and your likes specially for those advertisements on the side bar.

    I agree. FB is a great way of keeping in touch with friends and family, and getting to know what is going on.

    Sorry about the bad weather but now you have plenty of time to write for us ๐Ÿ™‚

    ๐Ÿ™‚ Silver lining?

    • ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, IHM, I am sure they do make some sort of general sense – but why would one take these quizzes, when we could deduce that much by our own common sense ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. I don’t take them..and I get bugged to find my friend’s results…seriously I don’t want to know! Have blocked all apps…

    We don’t have a TV…but yeah, I go nutty when the broadband or system conks. Maybe it’s because I have no life outside the home?! ๐Ÿ™„ Waiting for next year when son goes full-time to school…sweet sweet freedom!

    Oh man…snow! Miss it! But can imagine the frustration of being cooped up ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  15. Friends on FB are welcome to take “How hot Am I” “What type of shoe are you”…but please, please don’t publish those results on your wall.

    I once wrote a post on my FB addiction and the inane things people indulge in and I managed to piss off quite a few of my friends with my free flowing opinion.

    Btw I love playing Lex(a scrabble variant)…in fact I joined FB for this application.

    And my now bitter half is always complaining about my blog addiction ๐Ÿ™‚
