You're The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy!
by Douglas Adams
Considered by many to be one of the funniest people around, you are
quite an entertainer. You've also traveled to the far reaches of what you deem possible,
often confused and unsure of yourself. Life continues to jostle you around like a marble,
but it's shown you so much of the world that you don't care. Wacky adventures continue to
lie ahead. Your favorite number is 42.

I'm seriously in the minority on this one. I love my answer and feel like it fits in many ways. Plus, I really love the book and (big wahoo) it was my good fortune to attend a reading by Douglas Adams when we were living in Ann Arbor. If there's ever a Hitchhiker's character quiz, I know which character I'd be.
When my husband and I were dating and he was working on his bachelor's degree, he loaned his copy of Life, the Universe and Everything to a grad student he worked with while I was reading the book. Yes, he never got it back and we eventually had to buy another copy. What is most memorable about that grad student, besides the fact that he walked off with a book I really, really wanted to finish? He had a bumper sticker on his wall that read, "No man is an island, but I can be a peninsula if I want to." I don't remember his face or his name, how tall he was or much else - he did have dark, curly hair and wore jeans all the time - but I remember the sticker on his office wall.
Thanks to Gentle Reader and Jenclair for leading me to this quiz.
