Least favorite:

Goldie Hawn
Diane Keaton
Bette Midler

Which minor character in Doctor Zhivago are you?

- that guy who could've used three more excavators for the construction project that otherwise required an inhumane amount of manual labor
- the absurdly intense Orthodox priest that Lara goes to see
- the misanthropic general practitioner who didn't like Rachmaninoff
- the bubbly Madame Sventitsky (hostess of the Christmas party)
- that guy who brought us lines like "But Lenin...in Moscow!" and "God rot good men!"
- sour old Comrade Kapuchina, who rebuffed Zhivago's welcome to what had become a communal house after the October Revolution
- the yellow-haired anarchist on the train to the Urals
- the old lady who used an infant corpse to get on the train but who at least finished her potato before delivering the last line to precede the intermission
- purple none of the above, for history has killed your appetite for ToToToT entries which sound like a ten-year-old devised them
- purple matter of indifference, as was the question of who won the First World War to Yevgraf Andreyevich Zhivago and other Bolsheviks

Asha Greyjoy ftw. And :lynch: all those who berate the redoubtable Brienne of Tarth.

It's the Middle Ages (for some reason), and we're in Europe (for some equally obscure reason):

work, fight, or pray?
