I'm soo COOL!

What mythological creature are you?

brought to you by Quizilla

A UNICORN: "When the first breath of winter through the flowers is icing,And you look to the North, and a pale moon is rising,And it seems like all is dying,And wold leave the world to mourn,In the distance hear the laughter of the last unicorn!"Unicorns are well known as the protectors of the forest. They are seen as a symbol for purity. Hence, their white coat. You are wise and like the fairy you love earth's creatures. You are compassionate, yet its hard for you to regret past experiences because you believe that with experience comes respect and wisdom. You live by the motto "knowledge is power." While your advice is worth while, not everyone is willing to listen because they don't understand you. But know that they are foolish to not listen. People take your timidnes coldly, therefore you only have a few select friends. But you except this and wouldn't have it any other way. You are secretive and never lie. You aren't afraid of death and acknowledge that your time will come. You have a quiet radiance and you obtain secrets that not even the ancient vampire knows.

I came across this page explaining how one self-diagnoses "whooping cough" (don't ask me why). There are four questions. All I want to know is why do they even put question number 1? I mean seriously who answers "no" to that?

Maimed... er, Memed by Christine

Christine has tagged me in a meme. I couldn't answer all four questions but I figured I'd better post what I could since apparently I'll lose points for lateness.
Okay Christine here ya go...

  1. Hum a jingle of which you know all the words. LOUDER!!Ok, now write it down so we can remember it too.
    ”Oh I wish I was an Oscar Meyer Weiner That is what I’d truly like to beeeee. Cause if I was an Oscar Meyer Weiner. Everyone would be in love with meeeeeeee…”

  2. As a kid, you played a board game over and over. And you cheated you little bastard. What was the game? Damn! How did you know? There were two actually. Life and Monopoly. I played with my cousin Rhea and the boy from next door whose name was Merschell. We’d play out on my grandmothers porch. At some point during the game Mersh and I would send Rhea into the house for snacks while she was gone we’d steal her money. When she caught on to that and started taking her money with her, we changed tactics and raid the bank. She’d come back and we’d have fistfulls of money which we’d deny stealing until we were blue in the face.

  3. What is the name of the song that you have been singing the incorrect words all these years? What were you singing? What should you have been singing? I’m gonna have to get back to you on this one cause honestly I don’t know the words to most songs. I just sort of humm the parts I don’t know.

  4. What is the most embarrassing childhood story that your parents drag out just to fuck with you for their own private amusement. That story would be the time when my mom put little 3 year-old me down for a nap and then came back to check on me later. She found me in the bathroom eating her cold cream. So she gave me a swat on the butt and I started to cry. She then decided I looked so funny that she had to take a picture. At this point in the story she whips out this picture…

    I’ve heard this story so often that I now tell it myself so really it no longer fucks with me like it used to. (Do I get a bonus point for illustrations?)

    Feel free to tag yourself.

My Stripper Song

Thanks to Brooke for the link

Your Stipper Song Is

Closer by Nine Inch Nails

"You let me violate you, you let me desecrate you

You let me penetrate you, you let me complicate you

Help me I broke apart my insides, help me I?ve got no

Soul to tell"

When you dance, it's a little scary - and a lot sexy.

Because I love Matt Soooo Much...

Matt at Cerulean Blue has tagged me for a meme that I just did. But due to my great love for Matt and since there's such a wealth of quirkiness in my personality (and because I have nothing else to talk about) here's
5 MORE weird things about me!
  1. When people cut me off on the road while driving, I like to imagine that I have super mental powers or magical abilities and that I can just lift their car up with my mind and put them on the side of the road where they will be inexplicably stalled out for an hour or that I can magically transport them to some grubby little street in Bangkok. It’s my version of creative road rage.
  2. I’m trying to train my cats to give me back massages. They’ll do tummy massages but for some reason if they can’t look you in the eye Shi-cat-su as I call it is out of the question.
  3. Automatic - Chevette. Standard - Prelude. Automatic - Carolla. Standard - Tercel. Automatic. – RAV4. That's the pattern of the types of transmissions I’ve had in my cars since I started driving. It’s getting to close to the time to get a new car. I want to get an Automatic but I secretly feel compelled to continue the pattern of alternating between Automatics and stick shifts. It’s causing me no end of angst.
  4. Besides imagining how I could die on a daily basis I also imagine winning the lottery. I go through how I would spend the money, who I’d share it with, etc. This has become more complicated since I got married. Because even though the odds of me ever winning are practically zero, I still feel like I have to compromise with my husband on how to spend my imaginary money.
  5. I think french fries are the world’s most perfect food. Especially my french fries. And I can’t eat french fries without thinking of my Uncle Dean, who was the first person to make me homemade french fries. That could be why he's my favorite uncle.

Amazing... but what exit?

VOORHEES, N.J. - Curiosity didn't kill one cat on a wild ride on the New Jersey Turnpike. The kitten, now known, for obvious reasons, as Miracle, hitchhiked a ride on the underbelly of a sport utility vehicle just before Christmas.

The gray and white feline traveled some 70 miles under the vehicle as it whizzed along the Turnpike on Dec. 23.

Who are you and what do you want?

Well here it is. The new year. I need to make some resolutions. But what do I want? What do I want to accomplish? What do I want to be? What changes do I want to make?

I want to be in better health. I want to spend my money wisely and save more. I want to be satisfied with and grateful for the things I have instead of always wanting more. I want to be a mom. I want to write more and to be a better writer. I want to start my own business. I want to work from home. I want to be happy. I want to be closer to God (not in a “be dead” way but in a “closer walk with thee” way.)

So here be my resolutions for 2006...

  1. To get some form of exercise at least 2 times a week (already had sex twice this week so I’m on a roll!)
  2. To wear more hats – literally. I spent a lot of money on hats last year and I need to make them count.
  3. To get pregnant.
  4. To (depending on the timing of #3) give birth.
  5. To turn 39 (if I don’t accomplish that then there’s pretty much no chance of the rest of these as my birthday is like 27 days off.)
  6. To pray more.
  7. With the help of #6 to determine what my new business should be.
  8. To publish my book of short stories.
  9. To make progress and perhaps finish the novel I started 3 years ago
  10. To learn to play guitar reasonably well
  11. To eat less red meat and eat healthier in general.
  12. To practice compassion.
  13. To write more letters to the people I love (not just emails but actual letters.)
  14. To start a real retirement plan and behave more fiscally responsibly
  15. To actually stick at least one of these resolutions… other than the hats.

Alibi's False Idol: Starbucks' New Cinnamon Dulce Latte

Bow down and worship ye mortals!

So "nummy" my heretic tastebuds have pledged themselves to this and the high priestess Blueberry Muffin.

I'm going to have to make sure I take communion soon to keep them from eternal damnation.
