The terribly amusing blog "Are You There, Blog? It's Me, Stephen" pointed me towards this quiz. It turns out we're both Lolitas. BFF!

Go take the quiz, it's easy, just like me.

You're Lolita!

by Vladimir Nabokov

Considered by most to be depraved and immoral, you are obsessed with
sex. What really tantalizes you is that which deviates from societal standards in every
way, though you admit that this probably isn't the best and you're not sure what causes
this desire. Nonetheless, you've done some pretty nefarious things in your life, and
probably gotten caught for them. The names have been changed, but the problems are real.
Please stay away from children.

Take the Book Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.


  1. Interestingly, the novel "Lolita" is considered a great work of art, and truly is one of the best books I ever read. So this makes perfect sense.

  2. Only one of my favorite books in all the world.

    Lucky you!

  3. Have either of you read King, Queen, Knave also by Nabokov? I actually like it better than Lolita In fact, I like it better than almost any other book period. It has the most interesting use of point of view ever.

    Go read it right NOW. You can thank me later.

  4. I would, but I found out that I'm "The Grapes of Wrath" and I'm too depressed to go to the bookstore.

  5. Oh dear. Oh. Oh darling. I'm just so.... Oh Dear. The image of you as Ma Joad.... Oh dear.

  6. Among other things I'm evidently obsessed with dust. Given the visual evidence of my house at the moment, the obsession is a collection.

    And I'd thank you for your sympathy, but I'm sure you were laughing as you wrote that. . .

  7. Nonsense. It just made me appreciate being Lolita all the more.

  8. I so love that we both got LOLITA. Scary but true.

  9. Yeah baby, underaged and oversexed. Sounds good to me.
