>Normally, I stay as far away as possible from any cutesy internet quizzes, but I was doing research for my volunteer role as a contributing editor for travel and recreation at BlogHer when I came across this cookie quiz, and I could not resist.

You Are a Black and White Cookie

You're often conflicted in life, and you feel pulled in two opposite directions.
When you're good, you're sweet as sugar. And when you're bad, you're wicked!

I'd have to say that it pegged me sort of well through a simple six questions about my cookie indulgences. Not to be nitpicky, though, I have never seen such a fancy black & white cookie. (In fact, I'd never seen one at all until I moved to NYC in 1997. We don't have these tasty treats in Chicago.) Usually the cookies have one half slathered with white frosting and the other half with black, but there is a definite line that is not crossed. No fancy ying-yang mingling, which brings me to my next thought about Seinfeld.

The quiz cookie also cracks me up because sometimes I feel like the whole world is obsessed with Seinfeld, which I stopped enjoying one night about 15 years ago when my mom pointed out that all the characters were fairly horrid people. Also, I really loathe the sense of entitlement George has and the way he constantly judges women on their looks. (Hello! You are short, fat, bald, and completely detestable. Only on TV would any hot woman go out with you since you are not rich, either!) I felt it was way too close to how I feel about people in real life, and thus not a good 30 minutes of escapism. The black & white cookie episode of Seinfeld is the only one that I can remember enough about to quote. Coincidentally, I was just talking about this episode on Saturday night, and Future Dr. H reminded me that the episode ended with Jerry getting a bad stomach ache from the black & white cookie. All very apropros.
