On Dead Languages

Ah, Saturday morning. Laundry! It being Saturday, and because I don’t want to think, let’s do another meme!

Let’s recap some recent memes. I’m Arthurian literature, I’m an INFP (here too), and I’m Ireland. I’m also “All You Need Is Love,” but doesn’t that go without saying?

I didn’t rig this, honest. I had no clue how this test was going to come out. I was thinking maybe Etruscan. But a Viking language? Vikings, runes, Tolkien! That so fits me it’s not funny. Age of Empires II—I love playing as the Vikings. They have a cool building set. 😉

I have to stop taking these quizzes. Have I become that predictable?
