Once Upon A Time

This made me laugh. I saw it at The Zen of Motherhood, and clicked right over. Who Were You In a Past Life?

In a Past Life...

I was a Mute Viking. I lived in Germany. And I was Hung For Treason.

The "quiz" only asks one question, "What's your current profession?" What I want to know is who hangs arts administrators for treason? Or, going in the other direction, what is it about mute Vikings that they come back as arts administrators?

Awesome Mom said...

How can you have been a Viking and a have lived in Germany? It must have been an interesting life.

I think that mine is very appropriate:

You Were: An Insane Magician.

Where You Lived: West Africa.

How You Died: Buried alive.

DD said...

That must mean that you and I may have battled against each other at some time:

I'm an Albino Vicking and lived in Germany. I was killed in battle.

How can one tell if a viking is albino or not?

MsPrufrock said...

A migrant mute Viking apparently, what with the whole German thing. Well done on travelling so far (relative to the times) whilst a mute.

You Were: A Charming Chief.

Where You Lived: New Guinea.

How You Died: In Childbirth.

Nothing if not creative!

All of these are just too funny...look at mine:

You Were: An Albino Cannibal.

Where You Lived: Chile.

How You Died: Killed in Battle.

An albino in Chile. I'll bet I was sunburned a lot.

OK, I realize that this is a joke and all but I had the most interesting conversation with a student once about reincarnation. I had a hindu guru come speak to my class and of course, reincarnation turns out not to be the glamorous thing you imagine. First, there's only one great soul that kind of manifests itself in different bodies. Second, it's not such a good thing to constantly be reborn. Third, everything bad that you did back then is now hitting you, etc.

I was wondering why people like the idea of a past life and she said that it's not just that they get to be special but that they get 'another bite at the apple.' I don't know why...I just loved that.

I already posted it to my blog, but I am delighted to learn I was an arrogant monk, in France, who died of typhoid.

Julie Pippert said...

This might explain a lot.

I think any form of arts renders you mute. Because:

You Were: A Mute Poet.

Where You Lived: Chile.

How You Died: Killed in Battle.

Julia said...

It was the mute part I found most interesting with respect to you. The viking must've stored up a lot of things to say.... Hehe.

MadMad said...

I put in housewife, but added "mad mad" just to see what would happen:

You Were: An Arrogant Poet.

Where You Lived: Egypt.

How You Died: In Childbirth.

Anonymous said...

Just what I thought.

No one loves someone in Corporate Law. That is why I work part time.

You Were: A Forlorn Fortune Teller.

Where You Lived: China.

How You Died: The Plague.

Kind of apt considering my last post.

niobe said...

But shouldn't that be hanged? Unless, of course, uh...forget it.

I don't know about my past life, but clearly in this one, I'm a pedant manqué(e).

painted maypole said...

You Were: An Albino Warrior.

Where You Lived: North Canada.

How You Died: Typhoid fever.

Hey... at least as an albino I was well suited to hide in the snow.

(and I'm guessing it's all completly random)

I KNEW there was someone gorgeous just waiting to get out!

You Were: A Gorgeous Executor of Sacrifices.

Hysterical - I just may use this!

The loquacious Vikings all come back as public radio phone bank volunteers, so count yourself lucky.
