small world

I don't have time to do a real post right now because I'm headed downtown to meet my wonderful new bloggy friend and part-time expat Ginnie who is in town for a few weeks. Wheee!

But I'll leave you with one of those incredibly accurate quizzes.


You Are a Jelly Donut

So you're a little rounder than most folks - but it's only in the right places!
You maintain a clean exterior, even if you're all messy on the inside.
You think you're the best, and that's mostly true...
But remember, you're just an empty shell without your jelly!





Oh yeah, that's me all right. Round? Check! Clean exterior but a mess inside? You betcha! The best? Well, the best in something all right, just haven't figured out what that something is yet (maybe collecting fridge comments?). And of course the jelly is the only thing that's holding me together!


I will return later properly caffeinated and socialized to tell you all about my day...

I'm a Krispy Kreme...

By the way, nice Fridge cleaning exercise! Your newly cleaned one looks nothing like mine (I only have a few beers in it and a jar of mustard).

I am a Glazed Donut. To quote the site:

"Okay, you know that you're plain - and you're cool with that.You prefer not to let anything distract from your sweetness. Your appeal is understated yet universal. Everyone dig you. And in a pinch, you'll probably get eaten."

Well, I do like glazed donuts. Especially from Krispy Kreme. Come to think about it, there are NO donuts in the world other than Krispy Kreme.

Sigh! Krispy Kreme. Come to Spain, Krispy Kreme.

Tat- report coming soon.

canadianswiss - I bet you're something fun with sprinkles on it!

Elemm - Yeah, they're called Krapfen up here.

mr. fabulous - really hard to get a decent donut around here

gc philo - thought so. :-) Yeah, you should have seen my fridge before that. Definitely not photo material

Sal! You? Plain? Never! But the understated yet universal appeal is right on, especially if you're wearing your kilt. :-) Did you know that Krispy Kreme has come to England? Plan your next holiday accordingly!

You are HIGH on my list of people who are NOT a mess inside. This is ridiculous. I object!

Ich bin ein Berliner... not really, I'm apparently "plain" like Sal! Poor us. Ah, well, at least you finally inspired me to post on my blog at long last.

I just can't wait for the report. :) Oh that coffee...Yum

Oh Betty, Betty, Betty! You are so sweet. Let's just say that my inside is a teensy bit messier than my outside. :-)

Angie! You, my dear, are the exact opposite of plain. I still laugh every time I think about "Ich bin ein Berliner"! Now I must rush over to your blog and see what you wrote.

Expat - yes were were very continental today. No Nescafe out of a jar for us!

My husband and I are both glazed. I guess that is good. But all this darn quiz did is remind me how good the Krispy Kreme glazed are when that hot doughnuts now sign is on...

Ahhhhhh...

I am afraid to see what I am :p

melusina - I actually went to the Krispy Kreme site and read all about the hot doughnut sign. Big mistake. I probably won't be able to sleep tonight. :-)

Pumpkin Pie - yes, doughnuts can be very scary!

To quote the site, I'm a Boston Cream donut. "You have a tough exterior. No one wants to mess with you.
But on the inside, you're a total pushover and completely soft.
You're a traditionalist, and you don't change easily.
You're likely to eat the same doughnut every morning, and pout if it's sold out."

And what do you know? My favorite type of donut.

I hate that they don't have really good donuts and muffins here. Not that I need them...

Okay, you know that you're plain - and you're cool with that.
You prefer not to let anything distract from your sweetness.
Your appeal is understated yet universal. Everyone dig you.
And in a pinch, you'll probably get eaten.
--- I love these little quizzes, and now I can post them with blogger, I couldn't with the old host. Did you have a good time with your friend??

oh, that was me, the plain one. What did I do wrong to look anonymous...? *blushes*

I am having serious problems here, and I do not why I do not get the right window to sign with my name.
sorry about 3 anonymous!

Dixie - it's doughnut psychoanalysis! You're right , all the doughnuts I've had here have been a little off - sort of too hard and dense, which I don't really get since they seem to be able to do the jelly doughnuts all right. Geez, the trials we have to go through, eh?

Mar! No problem at all. I think Blogger is acting up a bit tonight. I had trouble posting about an hour ago.

DAMN!!! Now I'm craving a Dunkin' Donuts buttermilk donut along with a large coffee with cream and one Sweet 'n Low!
