Every time I try to stay away, this happens. @ 07:31 am

Current Mood: tired tired

Seems like every time I take a computer vacation, I end up pulling an all-nighter to catch up on my Friends list, and end up with a ton of recently-seen quizzes and memes.


This one's pretty accurate.

You Are a Peacemaker Soul

You strive to please others and compromise anyway you can.
War or conflict bothers you, and you would do anything to keep the peace.
You are a good mediator and a true negotiator.
Sometimes you do too much, trying so hard to make people happy.

While you keep the peace, you tend to be secretly judgmental.
You lose respect for people who don't like to both give and take.
On the flip side, you've got a great sense of humor and wit.
You're always dimplomatic and able to give good advice.

Souls you are most compatible with: Warrior Soul, Hunter Soul and Visionary Soul


My actual sign is Sagittarius. I hate quizzes with relationship questions; I've only had one and stumbled into that, so I have no frame of reference.

Your True Sign Is Virgo

Shy
Picky
Genuine
Smart and Logical
Caring and Helpful
A Total Perfectionist
On the Conservative Side
More Listening Than Talking


I've never even visited the site, so...

You Are 0% Addicted to Myspace

Your Myspace addiction factor is: Very Low

When it comes to Myspace, you don't know what the big deal is. Frankly, you think it's over hyped.


... but substitute LiveJournal for MySpace and...

You Are 44% Addicted to LiveJournal

Your LiveJournal addiction factor is: Moderate

You're slowly building a very strong addiction to LiveJournal. Get out while you still can!

Me, a leader?
Your Personality Is

Guardian (SJ)


You are sensible, down to earth, and goal oriented.
Bottom line, you are good at playing by the rules.

You tend to be dominant - and you are a natural leader.
You are interested in rules and order. Morals are important to you.

A hard worker, you give your all at whatever you do.
You're very serious, and people often tell you to lighten up.

In love, you tend to take things carefully and slowly.

At work, you are suited to almost any career - but you excel in leadership positions.

With others, you tend to be polite and formal.

As far as looks go, you are traditionally attractive. You take good care of yourself.

On weekends, you tend to like to do organized activities. In fact, you often organize them!


I've never thought of myself as a leader or "managerial material"...

You are very ambitious and because you seek and need recognition, you try in your own way to impress people and you want to be looked up to - to be both popular and admired. You feel that there is a gap which separates you from your fellow man, or woman as the case may be, but this anxiety is an unnecessary one. Keep on the way you are going and you may surprise yourself.

You need an atmosphere of peace and quiet and you would like to share a bond of understanding with the 'right person' - you have the belief that with the right person, your stress and anxiety could be minimised.

The situation at this time is one of considerable distress. You feel trapped and you are looking for some way out. You can find solace in the arms of someone who cares so long as there is no long-term emotional involvement.

You are being unduly influenced by the situation that is all around you. You do not like the feeling of loneliness and whatever it is that seems to separate you from others. You know that life can be wonderful and you are anxious to experience life in all its aspects, to live it to the full. You therefore resent any restriction or limitations that are being imposed on you and you insist on going it alone.

You are trying to build up your own position and you resist all external influences. You insist that you are your own person and you will not tolerate any outside interference. Decisive and proud, you are true managerial material.


Try the Colorgenics quiz

This one sounds about right.

You Have Low Self Esteem 44% of the Time

While you sometimes feel good about yourself, you tend to struggle a little with self esteem issues.
It's not about changing who you are, it's about accepting your faults. You just need to be less critical and demanding of yourself!


A moment of silliness from thndrstd

Chinchilla
You scored 28 nervousness!
You really should be more nervous. People want to make coats out of you, you know. It's a harsh, harsh world, my friend.



My test tracked 2 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
free online datingfree online dating
You scored higher than 59% on nervousness
free online datingfree online dating
You scored higher than 29% on smallness
Link: The Small Nervous Animal Test written by zombieface on Ok Cupid, home of the 32-Type Dating Test


I think this one's stuck, I haven't seen anyone with a different answer.

Who Should Paint You: Andy Warhol

You've got an interested edge that would be reflected in any portrait
You don't need any fancy paint techniques to stand out from the crowd!


Sounds about right here too.

You Are 60% Open Minded

You are a very open minded person, but you're also well grounded.
Tolerant and flexible, you appreciate most lifestyles and viewpoints.
But you also know where you stand firm, and you can draw that line.
You're open to considering every possibility - but in the end, you stand true to yourself.



And finally, the Icon Meme

Which of my current icons...

1. ...is your Favorite and why?
2. ...is your Least Favorite and why?
3. ...would you like some context for?
4. ...have you never noticed I even had before?
5. ...do you most associate with me?




Oh, good Lord, the kids are up already. And is that the sun? Crap! I should be in bed. Can't believe I spent all night on here without even knitting. And I forgot to take my pills around midnight like I was supposed to. Crappity crap!

One last thought - This Disadventure reminds me of rosepurr, froggy_dear and purple_phys.

http://www.parsimonious.org - A fan site with free downloads for Sims and Sims 2. I was part of their artist staff a couple of years ago, created a lot of Sims 1 wallpapers and some burglar & fire alarms that looked like framed Amish quilts, and did some eyes for Sims 2 based on Halloween contact lenses. I'm still on a few Sims communities and use the Parsimonious logo there.

I'm not all that fond of the snowflake either, but that's what I get for coming up with a holiday pic in a hurry. It was from one of those Flash-based snowflake generator sites.

I just stumbled into the Lego Serenity a couple of days ago, and used LJ's new icon software to clip off the text. Haven't really used it yet.
