Play Day

I am very thankful for this TGIF. I was lucky enough to land the same schedule in my new job so that I still have 3-day weekends. I'm telling you what, though, I did more work in the last three days than I did in the last six weeks at my old job. My brain is well and truly bruised and about all I'm good for today is play time. Not that play's a bad thing. Play is good! Let's play.

First, we ought to play with some Words Gone Wild. Pretend you're a cat and the words are mice as you peruse this list. Then, as you're standing over the mangled corpses, grinning your little cat grin, tell me what you think they meant.

Erin Brokervich
there lieing to the peple
appologise of what his pastor done
I maybe be misunderstanding

And now, let the games begin. First, let's see what the Chocolate Oracle has to say:

What Your Taste in Chocolate Says About You

You are sophisticated, modern, and high class.
Your taste is refined, but you are not picky.
You are often the first to try something new.
You are lively, goofy, and a total blast.
You're incredibly happy, and you always are lifting spirits.
You love to be the center of attention. You enjoy entertaining your friends.
You feel lost when no one is interested in you... You're too interesting to be ignored.

And then, let's play with our front doors and see what they have to say about us:

What Your Front Door Says

You are bold, brave, and easily excited.
You are passionate about what you believe.
And you're never afraid to tell people exactly what you think.
You're picky and particular. It's sometimes hard to meet your standards.

Now, let's find out what our doshas say about us:

Your Dosha is Kapha

Calm and grounded, you are not prone to mood swings or anger.
However, once you do get angry, it takes a lot to cool you down.
You tend to think a little slower than most people, but your logic is astounding.
Overall, you very loyal and trustworthy. You're not scared of being who you really are.

With friends: You enjoy their company, but often listen more than talk.
In love: You crave connection and affection. It's hard for you to be single.
To achieve more balance: Exercise vigorously (especially in the sun) and let go of attachments.

And finally, for the girls (although there's no rule saying the guys can't play, too; and you know what I think about rules anyway):

Your Inner Retro Girl Is

1960s Hippie Chick


VE said...

Hey, I'm a "1960s City Girl"! Awesome.

"When you're alone, and life is making you lonely you can always go...Downtown..."

Of course there's the $5.75 in gas to get there
Then there's the $14.50 in parking
That movie will cost you $9 and then another $14.50 in crap you could have bought in a store for $2.75.
That botique stop will cost you $149 for the designer jeans

Better stay away from downtown....

Bilbo said...

Only one really good one today...

had the guts to perped it - sorry.

excersize - refers to the larger clothes you need to buy after bulking up at the gym.

Erin Brokervich - has a great figure and wears sexy clothes, but can't manage money worth a darn.

there lieing to the peple - those prostitutes are genuinely trying to help customers get the elusive, missing "o".

appologise of what his pastor done - most people don't know it, but Pope Benedict, during his meetings with victims of clergy sexual abuse, tried to break the ice by handing out apples.

I maybe be misunderstanding - yes, me, too. Sorry.

mean't - it works for some people, but I've always found nice't to work better in the long run.

avoic - to avoid at sea? (ugh)

Amazaon - a very tough single-celled female

Have a great weekend!

My chocolate-You are intense, powerful, and dramatic.
People respect the things you do...
And they're not sure if they could do them!

You are full of life and vigor.
You have an amazing amount energy, and you keep very active.
Some people feel like you can't focus on them. You do tend to be restless

You love being by yourself and thinking. Developing your own theories and ideas is fun.
You feel lost when you're forced to be social. Being with other people can be lonely for you.

My front door-You are bold, brave, and easily excited.
You are passionate about what you believe.
And you're never afraid to tell people exactly what you think.
You're picky and particular. It's sometimes hard to meet your standards.

My Dosha-Creative and restless, you take in all of life's pleasures (maybe a little too much!).
You're quick witted and very talkative, but you also tend to have a spotty memory.
You tend to get very into ideas, people, and lifestyles... but only for a short time.
It's difficult to hold your attention, and you sometimes feel with what life has to offer.

With friends: You are very uncomfortable in new situations or with new people

In love: You fall in and out of love very easily-this is a total lie. I hate everyone. LOL

To achieve more balance: Live in a warm climate and spend some quiet time in nature

Also a 1960s Hippy Chick!

Kanrei said...

Amazaon- the amazing zany Amazon

taking the cat analogy to heart, I scattered everything paperesque on the desk, ran around madly three times in the apartment, jumped at my shadow, then lay down in the sun to make a hair ball...

I knowd there'd be something in this game I wouldn't like...

Serena Joy said...

This IS a banner day -- VE sings Petula Clark!:-)

Ouch, G! You've been watching Dexter, haven't you? Although you have sad business to take care of this weekend, something tells me there will also be some fun moments.:)

Thank you, Bilbo, for another excellent job. As always, you nailed 'em.:)

The quizzes were pretty fun, huh, Roxan? I'd say we both got some expected and some unexpected results. The hippie chick thing doesn't surprise me, though.:)

Kan, I'm not surprised at your hippie chick result, either. If you were older -- and, of course, a girl -- I think that's who you'd be. LOL at your definitions.:D

Poor Skunky. After you cough up the hairball, see what you can do with the words.:)

NYD said...

My Dosha is hamburger.

That means that I ain't goin to India very soon.

Here's to hopin that work and the job will mellow out soon.

Serena Joy said...

Thanks, NYD. And hey, very soon you'll be able to get a dosha-worthy hamburger in NYC. It'll cost 'ya, but what the hell.:)

Sling said...

'I maybe be misunderstaning'..
I'm not really sure what I think you thought I said,is what I actully meant..

My front door proudly proclaims;
You are bold, brave, and easily excited.
You are passionate about what you believe.
And you're never afraid to tell people exactly what you think.
You're picky and particular. It's sometimes hard to meet your standards.

Serena Joy said...

Good job, Sling.:)
