I am "that one torch on orientation island":

People use you to get where they need to go, and they never contact you again. You're easily forgettable, not pleasant to look at, and you've been grabbed by a shit ton of people. You're gathering dust now, and nobody remembers you.

Ouch. I mean, ha ha.

Adeon Writer

Same as Arcadia. Well, this wasn't a feel-good thing at all. :(

Amanda Dallin

Same as Arcadia too. Are we sure there are other responses?

Tracy RedAngel

"Remember when Tevas were popular, let's recreate that except with a fucking EYE in the middle of the hand instead of that little swirly thing, that would be really cool." --you. You're unoriginal, uninspired, and try to rip off everything that you think might make you look trendy."

Oh yeah, that's me...must have been my love for cupcakes, eh? ;)

Ajax Manatiso

I kept wanting to say "none of the above" for all of the questions. Not enough variety in the answers. Finally it said -- you are a downer, you rain on every parade -- well thank you very much -lol

CronoCloud Creeggan

I got the torch too.

Cicadetta Stillwater

@Tracy: I got that, too. Joining the ranks of the uninspired cupcake hounds. XD

Kitty Revolver

I got "Anon Plurk" with the text outlining why I actually left.
