I'm so Totally Girly...

So my darling Froggy found a site that let's you know whether a blog is written by a man or a woman. It's called the gender analyzer.

According to Froggy, this site is 64% certain that my blog is written by a man.
Uh huh. You know why she checked mine? Cause I have the girliest blog she reads. I wouldn't be shocked to find that I hold that title with more than one of you.

So OK, I'm going to write a wee vignette and see if it has an effect on the results.

So today I met My Dear Anon for lunch and was disappointed to discover that her restaurant no longer serves my favourite dessert. I had to wait for my Dear Anon to get off shift, so I read The Complete Works of Jane Austen. She then joined me and we talked about boys.
After that topic was done to death, we discussed shopping for cardigans. We then went out separate ways. On the drive home I realized that my back was a bit stiff, so I considered calling the spa to make an appointment for a hot stone massage. And while I'm there, why wouldn't I book a manicure and pedicure too? And lord knows I could probably stand to get my eyebrows waxed. I stared outside at the lovely snow and realized that while I should still be restrained from shoe shopping anytime in the near future, I could definitely use some cute new boots.
Alas, Christmas is coming and I should probably save up. Oh yeah, and did I mention that I ordered the sweetest necklace from Wendy Brandes the other day when she advertised that she was having a sale?

OK, I'm gonna pre-post this and see how I do....

UPDATE: It is now 65% certain that the blog is written by a man.

Hilarious...

I am apparently only 58% woman but still gender neutral. Meh!

Princess Pointful said...

Haha! That is too funny,
It seems that both us Princesses are believed to be men...

the frog princess said...

Clearly, it is broken. I should start writing about chainsaws and see if that makes me more womanly :)

WendyB said...

I'm 83% woman!

Ali said...

It guessed mine at 64% woman...and I talk about tools sometimes! I'm guessing it might not be so accurate...

MissE said...

well, it's 53% sure I'm a guy... but like hilly, apparently my bog is fairly gender neutral... which leaves me wondering just how many male bloggers spend time writing about *their* first pap smear?

AmyTree said...

I'm 53% girly, but it's still convinced I'm gender-neutral! Must start talking about erm... girlier things.

Chief Rock Chef said...

I am 63% male - not bad considering I just posted about doing crochet!

Glamourpuss said...

Who comes up with these bizarre tools?

I laughed a lot at this post - then of course i ran the gender analyzer on my own blog, and guess what?!!! It is 81% sure mine was written by a girl! what? perhaps their little system is outta whack...

Nance said...

It gauged mine at 55% certain it was written by a man. Hmph. NOT.

Elisa said...

I'm also planning for apparel & shoe shopping for the Christmas, it will be have lot of fun.

Psychgrad said...

55% female. This gender analyzer is pretty bad. What is it looking for? Words like "frolicking amongst the flowers"?

Do you like the hot stone massage? Does it help? I've never tried it. I always just get the regular Swedish style because I don't really get the hot stone business.

Prunella Jones said...

I'm 83% woman. Hear me roar!

Princess of the Universe said...

Psych G- love love love the hotstone massage. Come to Winnipeg and I'll book us a session at Riverstone spa :)

Nat said...

I was 51 per cent woman but it decided gender neutral... oddly the running blog at see_nat_run is more femme at 66 percent. I guess talking about chafing is girly.

LeSombre said...

I don't trust that analyzer thingy. Mine was gender neutral (I can live with that) but then I did this:

We guess http://www.avitable.com/ is written by a woman (56%), however it's quite gender neutral.

Adam has pictures of his balls on his blog. How can that be anything else than 100% man? ;-)

notthelifeiordered said...

haha that thing told me they were 78% certain my blog was written by a male! I was kind of surprised and had to go check myself out in the bathroom :) I haven't checked it recently though, maybe it thinks I'm a girl again...
