You Should Play the Guitar


You're very independent - both in spirit and in the way you learn.
You can teach yourself almost anything, even if it makes your fingers bleed.

You're not really the type to sit patiently through a music lesson - or do things by the book.
It's more your style to master the fundamentals and see where they take you.

Highly creative and a bit eclectic, you need a wide range of music to play.
You could emerge as a sensitive songwriter... or a manic rock star.

Your dominant personality characteristic: being rebellious

Your secondary personality characteristic: tenacity

I think of Leaving Las Vegas whenever I hear "In vino veritas."

As always, that's a beautiful pic of you.

Kanrei said...

Yes, greatly exaggerated. I feel the same for every religion as well.

2. Are you surprised that (a) OJ was granted bail and (b) he made it?
A)No

Yes, my mind for one.

I have more friends online.

Kanrei said...

Dear Miss Begotten,
How much longer?

Serena Joy said...

Why, thank you, Mona.:)

Ted's roaring. This is a good thing?:-)

I hadn't thought of that (Leaving Las Vegas), BW, but you're right.:) Thank you very much, and happy HNT to you.:)

LOL @ your #5,, Roxan. And #7 ain't true!:)

Kan, your #4 ain't true, either. I'd say your mind's in pretty good shape. How else would you be able to shepherd Lemmings so well?

Miss will ponder on your question and see if she can conjure up an answer by tomorrow.:-)

leelee said...

~You Should Play the Saxophone~
You are charismatic, friendly, and very uninhibited.
You have a lot of personal expression to bring your music.

Improvisational and informal, you can't deal with an instrument that has too many rules or complexities.
You are much more interested in creating unique solos than immersing yourself in music theory.

You have a lot of style, and you definitely are one smooth operator.
And while you may not play perfectly, no one's going to accuse you of being boring.

Your dominant personality characteristic: being very outgoing

Your secondary personality characteristic: your flair for the unique and dramatic****


Love your pic today...:-)

Charles said...

I see the questions, where's the answers? Aren't you supposed to answer when it's Q&A?

I shouldn't play any instruments, too many people could get hurt.

Charles said...

1. Do you believe there's some core of truth to every legend? Not all of them, perhaps for some.

2. Are you surprised that (a) OJ was granted bail and (b) he made it? No, and no. That he's paid nothing to the Goldmans says why he made it, that I suspect the judge will seize it to turn over to the Goldmans says why I think it was granted. Yay, JUDGE!

3. Do you enjoy reading mythology? I used to as a teen, not so interested now.

4. Are there things that you can't see or touch but take it on faith that they exist? Some, everything that is outside I can't feel or touch, but I know they exist, because I've seen and felt some them previously.

5. If you heard that Captain Jack Sparrow was coming for you, would you run for cover or hurry and pack a bag? This would be the opposite case of number four.

6. Do you learn something new every day? Sure, and I likely forget something everyday.

7. Do you have as many online friends as you have real-world friends? Probably more in number, but I don't really know them as well.

VE said...

1. I believe most male "legends" have scored!
2. Did he truly make bail or did he flee in a White Bronco?
3. It is a mythology that I read
4. Sure, it's that billion dollars...I'll get to it eventually.
5. I'd sell him some more eye mascara
6. Yes. Each and every day I learned that yesterday just didn't last.
7. Are you saying I should actually have a real world friend?

Serena Joy said...

Thanks, Leelee. Hey, with you on sax and me on guitar, we could take our show on the road.:-)

LOL, Charles. On Thursdays, Q&A means I Q, you A.:) Interesting answers!

Serena Joy said...

Noooo, VE. Surely that couldn't be true about #1. Let me know when you find that billion dollars and are in a sharing mood.:) Re #5, yes, sell it to him! Sparrow looks divine in eyeliner, and he can never have enough.:-) #7, nah, you don't have to. Ain't no rule that says so.

Serena Joy said...

1. Do you believe there's some core of truth to every legend?
Yes. It becomes exaggerated and distorted over time, but I believe there's always some kernel of truth to it.

2. Are you surprised that (a) OJ was granted bail and (b) he made it?
(a) Not at all
(b) No, and I'll bet Fred Goldman wasn't, either.

3. Do you enjoy reading mythology?
I used to. Not so much any more.

4. Are there things that you can't see or touch but take it on faith that they exist?
Absolutely.

5. If you heard that Captain Jack Sparrow was coming for you, would you run for cover or hurry and pack a bag?
I'd be packed and waiting on the front porch. LOL.

6. Do you learn something new every day?
Yes; otherwise, I consider the day a waste.

7. Do you have as many online friends as you have real-world friends?
Easily.

Camille Alexa said...

1. Do you believe there's some core of truth to every legend?
No.

2. Are you surprised that (a) OJ was granted bail and (b) he made it?
I don't even want to talk about that jerk.

3. Do you enjoy reading mythology?
Yes. Especially Urban Mythology.

4. Are there things that you can't see or touch but take it on faith that they exist?
Like gravity? Yes. Like telekinesis or the holy ghost? No.

5. If you heard that Captain Jack Sparrow was coming for you, would you run for cover or hurry and pack a bag?
This one says more about you than anyone else, SJ.

6. Do you learn something new every day?
Only in my Pollyanna phase.

7. Do you have as many online friends as you have real-world friends?
No. But I like you lots.

Serena Joy said...

LOL at your #5, Camille, and I don't blame you about #2. #7 - Aw, I like you lots, too.:)

Scary Monster said...

Me should play a zither?!? Them bloggythangs are screwy.

1. Yes, absolutely. Most humans are too lazy to make shit up fer themselves so they just keep embellishing on old worn out tales untill they become legend.

2. Ignorance & apathy

3. Me do.The myths and legends of different cultures can give you wonderful insight to yer own. And they make for great pick up lines at the bar.

4. Yes. Love.

5. Me would invite him over fer a plate of calamari and some grog.

6. Me tries.

7. Me definition of what a friend is be fairly strict, but Me do have a great deal of buddies inside and outside me computer.

Nice mixture of questions this week, SJ.

STOMP.

Serena Joy said...

I'm not even sure what a zither is, Scary, but you can grab it and join Leelee's and my roadshow.:)

Yes, I think you've hit the nail on the head with #1. #4 - for sure! #6 - I know you do.:)

Apparently I should be a ukelele.


"You have a narrow waist and a big butt. Your friends are picky people with poor lung capacities.

Though your range is limited, you sure can get on everyone's nerves!

No luau is complete without you."

Serena Joy said...

Yeah, Greeny, I like ukeleles (and luaus). Soon we'll have a complete band. What do you suppose we ought to call ourselves?:)

G-Man said...

1.Yes
2.No No
3.That's Lunacy!..hehehe
4.Like God?...Or Aliens?
5.???
6.Yes
7.Hell No!...Well Maybe..

Beautiful HNT Serena...
Beautiful CT as well..
TTFN..G...xoxox

Serena Joy said...

Re your #4, Galen, yeah, like that. Or ghosts, fairies, clairvoyance, CTs, yada-yada. #3 - don't forget, there's plenty of "lunar" mythology.:)

Thank you, and happy HNT to YOU.
xoxo

Trée said...

Where's my sweater? :-D

Top cat said...

1. Do you believe there's some core of truth to every legend?
to every legend..no.

2. Are you surprised that (a) OJ was granted bail and (b) he made it?
no regardless of what we think of him it was even higher than the standard going rate for bail in Nevada. Kidnapping??he will get off on lesser charges, trust me.

3. Do you enjoy reading mythology?
not really but I enjoy fantasy and sci fi stuff.

4. Are there things that you can't see or touch but take it on faith that they exist?
of course, God is one of them.

5. If you heard that Captain Jack Sparrow was coming for you, would you run for cover or hurry and pack a bag?
I'd throw old VHS tapes of jumpstreet at him and say "remember this mr shakespeare?"
Not a fan of Johnny Depp, he can stay in France for eternity as far as I'm concerned.


6. Do you learn something new every day?
most of the time.

7. Do you have as many online friends as you have real-world friends?
I have more online friends..I hope.

Top cat said...

oh I forgot, I love the long skirt, you look fab.
tc

Serena Joy said...

LOL, Trée. Perhaps next week.:)

Thanks, TC. About your #2, I doubt if ANY of the charges stick in the end. We'll see. LOL at your #5.:-)

Trée said...

You know SJ, I love a woman that can spell my name right. Makes me all warm inside, the kinda warm that melts chocolate and smiles in equal measure.

I'm going to hold you to "next week." If you don't have canary yellow, I'll take dulcet primrose. Send me the bill if you have to. :-)

Serena Joy said...

I think I can, I think I can -- Trée. I don't think I have a primrose sweater, but the yellow is doable. I'll have to check and make sure I didn't drool chocolate all over it.:)

Trée said...

Primrose would be perfect for your hair color, not to mention those pink manicured nails. Shop if you must, but make no mistake, you would look stunning in primrose. :-)

Serena Joy said...

Heh. It's always nice to have a personal shopping assistant onboard.:)

snowelf said...

1. Do you believe there's some core of truth to every legend?

Yes. I can't help it...

2. Are you surprised that (a) OJ was granted bail and (b) he made it?

No. I can't help it...

3. Do you enjoy reading mythology?

Absolutely!! Bring it on!

4. Are there things that you can't see or touch but take it on faith that they exist?

You mean like a million dollars? ;)

5. If you heard that Captain Jack Sparrow was coming for you, would you run for cover or hurry and pack a bag?

My ninjas wouldn't let him near me, but I think he'd be awesome to go to lunch with. ;)

6. Do you learn something new every day?

Again, absolutely!!

7. Do you have as many online friends as you have real-world friends?

I probably have the same amount, actually... but I feel like if my on-line friends and I were in the same city and hadn't met on line, we'd be friends anyway. So what's a little cat-5 and fiber cabling between friends?? :)

A Happy Weekend to you SJ!! :)

Serena Joy said...

LOL @ your ninjas, Snow.:) Happy Weekend to you, hon.
