"You Are Psychopathy"




At your darkest times, your heart turns cold. You can operate without concern for anybody but yourself.
You may not have a psychopath, but you have the charm and calculation of one. It just depends on whether you want to turn it on.

While psychopaths are dangerous, your cool demeanor can serve you and the world well... if you let it.
Your lack of anxiety means you can navigate emergencies and stressful situations better than most people. Not much gets under your skin.










"You Practice Self-Care Regularly"




You are a pro at self-care, and you make sure to take time for yourself every day. You run on full... not empty!
While some people may worry about putting themselves first too much, you don't give it a second thought. You know what you need.

By taking good care of yourself, you can take better care of others. You have plenty of resources to go around.
If only everyone practiced as much self-care as you do, the world would be a much happier place!










"You Are Tough"




You are deep and resilient. You can get through anything, and you always have the ability to dig deep.
Your good deeds go unnoticed, and you don't mind being part of a group effort. You're happy to work behind the scenes.

When it comes to fashion, you have your own unique style. You update it over time, but you rarely change your overall look.
You dress to work hard and be comfortable - nothing too fancy. However, you also add some fun subtle flair.










"You Are Roasted Vegetables"




You are a bit of a homebody, and there's no better time to be at home than the holidays. You love this part of the year.
You feel the most productive and centered when you're at home. No matter how small, your home is truly your castle.

You live a simple and uncomplicated life. You think the most important thing is to make yourself happy.
You see less as more because you make sure to make it more. Nothing is too small or inconsequential for you to enjoy.










"You Are House of Yes"




Your family tends to prefer a picture-perfect holiday, but you can only fake it for so long.
You've got serious history with these people, and you're not one to brush over the past. Even for Thanksgiving!

You are a bit of an oddball yourself, and you tend to have strong passions. Some would call them obsessions.
Once you get your mind set on something, you're not going to change it. You tend to be single focused.






SO FUCKING TRUE!

"You Are a Serial Killer"




Of course, you don't have a true killer instinct. But you are fascinated by the dark side of life.
You disturb people with your knowledge of abnormal psychology. And you love freaking yourself out, too!

You are a pretty normal person, but you let another side of your personality out for Halloween.
If there's only one night that you can be creepy, then you're going to go all out.










"You Are Connie"




You are an incredibly sweet and compassionate person. You give everyone the benefit of the doubt.
At times, you can fall prey to unscrupulous folks, but that's okay. You're pretty good at getting out of a jam.

You are optimistic and enthusiastic. People love to invite you along to everything and anything.
You have a good heart, and that's evident to everyone around you. There's a reason why you are so beloved!













"Your Taste for Novelty is Low"




When it comes to life, you're happiest when things are low stress and low risk. You enjoy a good deal of predictability.
You may not enjoy novelty, but that doesn't mean your days are boring. Instead, you prefer to dig deep into what you love.

You aren't one to change a good thing, and compared to most people, you live a very stable and relaxing life.
While too much novelty doesn't serve anyone, a little novelty may do you good. It keeps you young and fresh!

"He's Keeping You a Secret For Now"




Your guy doesn't seem super psyched to go public with your relationship - at least not totally public.
Maybe he's a private person, or maybe you are just starting to date. It's nothing to worry about yet.

Keep an eye on this guy. Is he as serious about you as you are about him? He may be hiding something... you!
You want to be with someone who's as excited to be with you as you are with him. Even if it means getting a new man.










"You Are a Brown Leaf"




You are a well-grounded and down-to-earth person. You are dependable, in part because you like knowing that you can depend on yourself.
You are quietly confident and know who you are. You don't have to be the most colorful person in the room to be comfortable.

You are approachable and friendly. People naturally trust you. You are as stable and honest as you seem.
You are warm and reassuring. You believe that there is a season for everything, and you accept each day as it comes.











"You Are Quite Wise"




You don't feel different than anyone else, but that's part of your wisdom. You are humble and thoughtful.
You always try to reflect more than react, but sometimes your very human nature gets the better of you.

You try to go with the flow and live in the moment. There is a lot of wisdom to be found in the present.
If there's anything you're trying to improve on, it's getting to know yourself a little better.










"You Are Gillian"




You are a rebel to the core, and if someone calls you on it, it only makes you act out.
You are fun-loving and impulsive. You seek a life of adventure and enjoy being with whoever is Mr. Right Now.

You don't care what others think. You are good to those who matter to you, and your attitude helps liberate them.
You take life as it comes, and you are happy to squeeze the most out of every day. Party at your place!

"You Are a Maximizer"




When it comes to everything in life, you're always looking for the best. And you don't mind if it takes a while to find it.
You look at every option before making a decision. You don't like to be rushed, and you often regret your choices if you are.

You're the type of person who checks out every item on the menu. You don't want to miss out on any gems!
People may be annoyed with how long you take to make a decision, but they will agree that your taste is extraordinary.






Good, because the other result (Satisficer) is definitely not a real word!





From Julie: Kanye West! Kanye East!

"You Enhance Lives"




You're the type of person who likes to work quietly behind the scenes. Very few people notice all that you do.
You love to help, but you aren't looking for credit. You know that you do a lot simply being there for others.

You are steady, dependable, and loyal. You aren't just a rock, though - you also have a good spark that lights up the world.
You bring lightness and depth, optimism, and realism to others' lives. You are often what is missing.










"You Are Birdie"




You are as wise as they come. You have a good deal of life experience, and you've definitely learned from it.
You may be down to earth, but you have a wild past that few know about. And you're happy to keep it that way.

You have a lot of foresight, but you don't go around making predictions. You just let things unfold.
You are steady and encouraging. You are always rooting your friends on from the sidelines.







I got this error message last night: "You have specified a date in the future." No, I haven't. FACEBOOK, GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER!

I got up at 8 AM after going to bed at 1:50 AM, so it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT! Then I discovered something questionable by my reams of Staples paper, so I transferred those into an empty plastic storage tub. Thank goodness it fit, although I probably should have done that a while ago!





"You Are Very Frank"




You are the type of person who tells it like it is. You aren't going to insult people by lying to them.
Your friends can count on you for an honest opinion, whether they ask for it or not. And sometimes the truth isn't pretty.

You are never mean or overly harsh with your frank ways. But if you have to choose, you go for honesty over tact.
You believe that the truth will set us all free. We all suffer when we lie to ourselves and each other.

"You Are a Go-Getter"




You are a very ambitious person, and you're constantly adding to your list of goals and dreams.
While you dream big, you never let that satisfy you. You like to get out there and make sure your dreams come true.

You don't lose sight of your larger purpose in life, and you keep working even when things get tough.
Your attitude is almost like magic. When every door closes, you keep knocking until a new one opens.







From Reddit on June 18, 2017: I automatically lose respect for people who use the word "normative" when "normal" would do, but this special snowflake seems to think that "monogonormative" is a real word AND thinks that everyone should be cool with a non-monogamous lifestyle. You can DEFINITELY be cheated on if you're poly!

Now that the HTML posting option on Blogthings finally works again (for now?), I can post all the drafts I've saved!





"You Are Shakshuka"




You love comfort and feeling cozy, but you are also open to new experiences. You crave warmth of all sorts.
You are a bit of an oddball, and you wouldn't have it any other way. You are a person of substance - not just of quirks.

You are a skilled nurturer, both of others and of yourself. You believe that taking care of people is the ultimate goal.
You are a passionate person, and you try to shy away from anything that's a little too average. You make the bold choice when you can.










"You Are Pretty Adaptable"




You know when it's time to be flexible, but you also know when to stand your ground. You assess every situation as it comes.
You've got a lot that's working for you in your life. You're willing to improve, but you're not going to throw it away for the latest thing.

People may say that you should be more adaptable, but it's likely that they just want you to adapt to their ways!
Above all, you tend to be a realist who is living in the present. You know a good opportunity when you see one, but you also can sense when something is a waste of time.







From Julie: I don't really have a plan, most days. Just caffeine and weirdness, my friend. Caffeine and weirdness. THIS IS TOTALLY ME!

MONTHLY BUBBLE TEA TALLY, SEPTEMBER 2012 (1)

mango @ Copa Café (Saturday, Sept. 8) [free, thanks to Uncle Michael and Aunt Leslie!]


Before I called Chinese Eric tonight, I decided to see if I could get my YM working for Trillian. Apparently, my password was wrong, which is bullshit. I perforce reset it after Googling instructions, and it seems to be working. At least, I'm not disconnected after only half a second. This works, even though I never really use the service for anything these days. You never know what randomness may come forth, though! :P

When I called at 9:15, I got the fax machine screech right after Eric answered. He decided to call me back, which works for both our poor sets of ears! We discussed Grandma, Chinese New Year, the Mid-Autumn Festival tomorrow, the "older brother / sister ... UNCLE / AUNTIE" stages of life, mooncake, engrossing reading on the INTERESTING psychology differences between an only child and one with siblings (Nate would know more!), siblings' / classmates' personalities being different, our weeks, Portland, and the beer allowance. Conversed about YOU CAN'T DO THAT ON TELEVISION (Bart the cook was weirdly creepy, he says!) / green slime ingredients, YTV, SAVED BY THE BELL, SQUARE ONE, Halloween / Trick-or-Treating / things like Kids Night being safer (the Awana crew makes it fun for the kids!), the Copa Café, Scientology, Tom Cruise and finding a new wife, Thanksgiving dinner, weird news, the BC Lions not quite coming back from a 19-1 deficit against the Saskatchewan Roughriders (final score - while talking to me to kill time - was 27-20), dating not being easy, Dylan, BS being a "small group," the evolution of cellphones, and more.

He told me to tell white Eric "thank you for making me look up the word which I was supposed to use last time!" Apparently - and I never noticed this - he was going to say "bashful," but added "-ful" to the end of "brash," thinking it would be okay. I'm sure he's learned his lesson, but I know that adjectives and similar words can confuse him, so it's all good! Of course, I will pass on the message! I complained about everything changing their online interface lately (blogging sites like Blogger!), and he says that he has to guide his mom through Hotmail changes every six months or so! I'm not surprised that it happens, especially since MY mom complains that the Facebook "share" button is gone from her iPhone... I'm more inclined to believe Steph, who says it isn't. We know Mom might be losing it, after all. Eric and I ended this conversation at about 10:40, saying that it was nice to talk to the other - SEE? This is what I needed!
