With a Wave of a Wand...

When I become Empress of the Known Universe, I'm declaring a moratorium on Mondays. In fact, I plan to abolish them altogether as superfluous and good for nothing. Please vote for me.

Speaking of voting and superfluous and abolition, who's read "State of Denial?" I'm about halfway through it. Scary stuff, especially when considered in the light of business as usual in Washington.

I have to finish cleaning this evening. Out-of-town company's due Tuesday or Wednesday. Will I get it done? Nobody knows, least of all me.

I wore a holiday sweater to work -- with a sleeveless top on underneath, knowing that it was likely to get hot this afternoon. It did. The sweater was off by noon, with the AC cranked up. Freaky.


Who wants to try their luck at the World's Shortest Personality Test?

We managed to lasso a few Words Gone Wild today. Let's see what we can do about roping them into some semblance of Twisted Linguistics compliance.

Uh....this would suprise some people....The duality of man in focus....

Serena Joy said...

Heh. I don't know why some duality didn't show up in mine. You got a very nice profile, though.:)

Kanrei said...

You are dependable, popular, and observant.
Deep and thoughtful, you are prone to moodiness.
In fact, your emotions tend to influence everything you do.

You are unique, creative, and expressive.
You don't mind waving your freak flag every once and a while.
And lucky for you, most people find your weird ways charming!


I passed one of those damn tests finally! Yay!

I cannot vote for you. Mondays and I are good friends. It is Friday that I got issues with. I like you a lot, but Mondays are not nice to very many people, so I got to defend her.

Serena Joy said...

You, too, nabbed a very good profile. Cool!

But listen, screw this infatuation you have with Mondays. I have to be the Empress. You have to vote for me. Or else. I am not above graft. You help me get that crown and I'll make sure you get to keep waving your freak flag. I got no problem with Fridays; I'm off on Fridays. You help me out and I'll get you somebody to wave your flag AND write your blog on Fridays.:)

Rain said...

You are funky, outdoorsy, and down to earth.
While you may not be a total hippie...
You're definitely one of the most free spirited people around.

You are very impulsive - every day is a new adventure.
However, you do put some thought behind all your actions.
Still, you do tend to shock and offend people from time to time!


that little test is shockingly accurate! So how are you? I got to leave a comment today!!!

Serena Joy said...

Great profile, Rain! I'm impulsive, too, though I'm trying to stop. And apparently I offend some fringe faction, to which I say -- good!

I'm glad you got to comment. Maybe Blogger has fixed itself. Let's cross our fingers. I hope you're feeling better.

Kanrei said...

Funny part is that description is pretty much on.

If you can control Friday then I will consider it.

Serena Joy said...

Done. I can do anything. LOL. So, you'll help me fix the election?

Yes, I can see that your description is right on. Actually, I can see a little of each of us regulars in each set of results. Pretty amazing, huh?

Laurie said...

Noone...Peter...no way!!!! That is just too weird for words! I'm not kidding freaky deaky.

Liz said...

I got the same as Kanrei (2nd time). I cheated first time.

I'll vote for you, Serena, Empress of the World. You even have the right name for it.

Can you please get rid of the number 7 as well?

Liz said...

Yay, Blogger let me comment!

Serena Joy said...

It is mondo freaky deaky, Laurie, the way we've been on the same wave length lately. Fun, but definitely one of those very weird things. Now I'm wondering if my tin foil has holes in it.:)

Serena Joy said...

Liz, since 7 is one of my lucky numbers, I'd be delighted to take it off your hands. I'll give you another number. Which one would you like? While we're on the subject of luck, let's keep our fingers crossed that the Blogger Comment Curse is now fixed.

Laurie said...

Hahahaha on the tin foil. I better check mine, too. Here's my personality quiz thing and it's pretty much on the money...

You are pure, moral, and adaptable.
You tend to blend into your surroundings.
Shy on the outside, you're outspoken to your friends.

You believe that you live a virtuous life...
And you tend to judge others with a harsh eye.
As a result, people tend to crave your approval.

Serena Joy said...

What great results you got, Laurie. I like this quiz.

Re the tin foil, just make sure you don't reuse foil you've baked potatoes in. If it's all forked up, it lets The Voices filter through.:)
