“Indie Girl”


So Reese posted this quiz on her site (and if you’ve never read her blog, you really, really should – I’m gonna work on getting some videos on there) anyway, back in high school we used to religiously take any quiz Cosmo ever published. Quizzes are great. They’re like mini psych-evaluations. So, according to cookingtohoookup.com (???) I’m an “Indie Girl”.

It’s no good pretending that any relationship has a future if your record collections disagree violently or if your favorite films wouldn’t even speak to each other if they met at a party.

— Nick Hornby, High Fidelity

I really need to read High Fidelity!

You can boil the Indie Girl down to two words: cultural literacy. Or how about these two: media consumption. As the Gourmet Girl loves food and all that goes with it, the Indie Girl loves media: books, movies, music, and art. The good news is you don’t have to be rich, good-looking, or famous to win this girl’s heart. The bad news is she will judge you based on your music choices, the books you read, and the films you watch.

    OMG! We soooo used to take all the Cosmo quizzes. Every month it was a
    new quiz! I totally forgot about that. No wonder I’m still obsessed with
    these things. Duh!

    Okay, Leslye, the Indie Girl is totally you. Media consumption? Hello?
    You have a vlog! I think this quiz is so accurate.

    I admit it, I am the media queen!!! And I could never be in a relationship with someone who didn’t love “The X Files”, “Punch Drunk Love” and the majority of Ben Harper’s discography.
