I'm late.

There's a surprise!

Happy New Year to everyone!

I got going on this at quasievil_bunny's LJ.

Your Birthdate: September 20

You are a virtual roller coaster of emotions, and most people enjoy the ride.
Your mood tends to set the tone of the room, and when you're happy, this is a good thing.
When you get in a dark mood, watch out - it's very hard to get you out of it.
It's sometimes hard for you to cheer up, and your gloom can be contagious.

Your strength: Your warm heart

Your weakness: Trouble controlling your emotions

Your power color: Black

Your power symbol: Musical note

Your power month: February


You Should Rule Venus

Venus is a mysterious, stormy planet - shrouded in a thick layer of clouds.

You are perfect to rule Venus, because you are quite emotional and volatile yourself.
Your emotions change as rapidly as the weather on Venus, and both you and the planet are incomprehensible to others.

While you are not a logical thinker, you are quite empathetic.
You can care for and understand others, but your emotions swirl too quickly to truly understand yourself.


You Are 60% Normal

Otherwise known as the normal amount of normal
You're like most people most of the time
But you've got those quirks that make you endearing
You're unique, yes... but not frighteningly so!


You Should Be a Film Writer

You don't just create compelling stories, you see them as clearly as a movie in your mind.
You have a knack for details and dialogue. You can really make a character come to life.
Chances are, you enjoy creating all types of stories. The joy is in the storytelling.
And nothing would please you more than millions of people seeing your story on the big screen!


Your Brain's Pattern

You have a dreamy mind, full of fancy and fantasy.
You have the ability to stay forever entertained with your thoughts.
People may say you're hard to read, but that's because you're so internally focused.
But when you do share what you're thinking, people are impressed with your imagination.


Your Learning Style: Personal and Passionate

You are very flexible and curious about the world. Human understanding is very important to you.

You Should Study:

Art history
Art therapy
Foreign Languages and Literature
International Studies


You Should Learn Japanese

You're cutting edge, and you are ready to delve into wacky Japanese culture.
From Engrish to eating contests, you're born to be a crazy gaijin. Saiko!


Other than that fun stuff . . .

I'm hanging in there, or here, or wherever. I haven't yet done much of what I was wanting to be doing this year.

I've made a small dent in the supposed craft room, which is of course totally out of control again.

I'm working on three fanfiction stories at once, which I'm not sure is the best way to go. At least I haven't mixed them up . . . yet.

I'm feeling my usual scattered and unfocused self, so I'm being myself.

I want to be able to play double stops on my fiddle. That's basically playing two strings at once. Not too bad when you only have to finger (or "stop") one of the two strings, but there are times that both need to be stopped and I'm not sure my brain can handle that. It is one of my goals for this year - learn to play competent, confident, pleasant sounding double stops.

I got my Beecake shirt!! It is most cool :-D

I also will be calling the chamber of commerce tomorrow to see if they have a list of clubs, groups etc. in town to see if there is anything I feel like joining.

It is past 11:45 PM!!!!!!!!!

I need to hit the sack.

Much Love to all!

Tres cool, LPT! But, I think we both need to work on that rather blase "normal" thing.

Yes, mon Cap'n, I never thought of myself as too normal. But I've taken that one more than once and come out the same everytime! Perhaps there are so many of us unique individuals around these days that unique is the Nouveau Normal? It's hard to say, LOL!

I hope you are well, along with LL and your noble steeds. Have you started at your new fencing club yet? I really like my new sabre!

Be well, mon ami

LOL mon cherie.

All is great w/ LL and the rest of us. As f/ fencing, seems like it is still the holiday hiatus f/ most local organizations. And congrats on your new sabre. Have you done epee as yet? LL and I went took foil, then sabre, and then did the beginner epee class. We both agreed that we love foil, and while I truly expected that sabre would be my favorite, when it really got down to it I found that I still enjoyed foil over it. There is something just so sweet and perfect in the movement of the lunge. I love to lunge - je l'aime! So anyway, we took the beginner's epee class last January thru March and even though we actually bouted during beginner's only a couple dozen or so times, I really started to love how much the whole body target and no right-of-way falls in w/ what a real duel would be like and the lunge was still the major focus of the attack and I just started thinking that epee was going to surmount even foil as my favorite weapon, and it is befitting that I end this tale here...

And lastly, mon amie, je adore ton francais!!!!

My best to you and yours,

Bon jour, mon ami,

I haven't really tried epee. I've done some drills with it and find the weapon a bit heavy for me. I have bursitis in my right shoulder from letting my arm and shoulder muscles atrophy. Too much computer, reading, knitting, crocheting, cross stitch, and calligraphy - they are all done with the arms in basically the same position and with mostly finger action not whole arm movement. I have exercises and I do them somewhat regularly *embarrassed blushing*. So, until and if ever I get my arms in shape epee is out for me. I love sabre as it offers more attack options than foil. If I miss a point hit I can often get in a slash for the point. Though as a result, my point control has sadly diminished.

One of the main guys in my club adores epee because of what you were saying about it being so much more like a real duel, less rules and more target :-)

a bientot, mon ami Cap'n

Bonjour LPT,

Et merci pour le francais! J'adore!!!
Eiee, bursitis in the shoulder. I had that f/ a few months many, many years ago when, during my many years of physical labor in the construction world, I was dating a lovely that had an apartment some distance from my place et she only had this small skinny bed (is that a twin I guess?) anyway, as the lass had a cast on her right leg, I spent many nights during that summer sleeping only on my left side w/ my arm being pinned under my ribs and on a mattress which was less comfortable than many floors that I have awakened on. And after several weeks of that I'd wake up and go directly to work w/ an arm aching so badly that I would have to sometimes swap daily tasks w/ my work buddies as I could not lift my left arm above my shoulder - not a good thing in the world of construction. Fortunately after several months of the little bed I returned to sprawling on my king-size quality mattress w/ my arms flailed above my head (or wherever they happened to find themselves - he-he) and the problem went away nearly as fast as it arrived.

As f/ the wench w/ the broken leg which had allowed me to finally woo myself into her meager boudoir - did I neglect to mention that she was my fiancee? The cast came off just in time f/ our wedding and we moved into a new place w/ MY KING-SIZE BED. And I love her even more now than then and think that she is even sexier.

a bientot, mon amie,


oh...LL, where are you, mon petit bouquet des fleurs...

Hi, Pearl! LOL, that last remark sounds like me when we're chatting. I do hope you're feeling much better today. You know, I still have yet to hear your fiddle playing, but I am POSITIVE that you sound wonderful! You've only started playing last year, I believe, and you've played at a jamboree with your husband. Your confidence probably does need a little building because I'm willing to bet good money that you play beautifully. Everything you touch turns out lovely--well, that's my view anyway. :-D

I wish I kept up with my My Space account for Beecake--it's all I can do to keep my New Year's Resolution to keep in better contact with my friends here on LJ. I believe things might get better soon, as the 9hr days and 6-day work weeks may be coming to an end. Wohoo! :-)
