Since I'm waiting paciently for something to finish downloading so I can reboot both Firefox and my laptop, have a meme! It means I can close another tab, too. The only interesting that happened today was unpolishing the floor and the oven spitting out error messages.

Your result for The Steampunk Style Test...

The Citizen

39% Elegant, 45% Technological, 60% Historical, 16% Adventurous and 34% Playful!

You are the Citizen, the embodiment of steampunk’s everyday side. You realize that there is far more to a rich, living environment than adventurers and lunatic engineers. For every gentleman-scientist or airship fleet admiral there are a dozen or more “ordinary people” who prevent the genre from devolving into a mass of cardboard caricatures, and you take pride in exploring the great diversity of a steampunk world’s population. Your clothing could easily come from any social group or society, and you are equally liable to dress upper, middle, or working class. However, the unifying feature to your fashion sense is that it does not get carried away with “looking steampunk,” instead creating a person who could have just stepped out of the crowd in a novel. Some people may claim that your style is too close to historical accuracy to be steampunk, but fortunately you know better.

You are The Lovers

Motive, power, and action, arising from Inspiration and Impulse.

The Lovers represents intuition and inspiration. Very often a choice needs to be made.

Originally, this card was called just LOVE. And that's actually more apt than "Lovers." Love follows in this sequence of growth and maturity. And, coming after the Emperor, who is about control, it is a radical change in perspective. LOVE is a force that makes you choose and decide for reasons you often can't understand; it makes you surrender control to a higher power. And that is what this card is all about. Finding something or someone who is so much a part of yourself, so perfectly attuned to you and you to them, that you cannot, dare not resist. This card indicates that the you have or will come across a person, career, challenge or thing that you will fall in love with. You will know instinctively that you must have this, even if it means diverging from your chosen path. No matter the difficulties, without it you will never be complete.

Still OMG tired, my phone still won't charge, but I found my xanax. I need to get a new cell phone battery as well, as I think my battery has dropped dead.

Also, possibly a new fan for my desktop. I do not think it should be making those noises when I play in Second Life.

My RL name has me under 681: Precision Instruments which says " You are creative and inspired to make the world a better place. You can work hard on something when it catches your interest. Your friends have unique interests in common with you."

Accurate? Not? Has nothing to do with the shooting at the Holocaust Museum, which for some reason I thought it was somewhere else that had been hit by an arsonist a few years earlier.

From Anglo-Saxon Magic by Dr. G. Storms. "Dr. G. Storms" is what's on the title-page!

There is nothing in the whole passage that looks like Christian influence, it is absolutely pagan. Grimm* thought it was Germanic, but it occurs almost word for word in the Latin Herbaium Apulei, of which the Anglo-Saxon text is a free version. The title of the work should have warned Grim that the chances were great this this particular passage was a borrowing, but otherwise his mistake is natural. If we did not posses the Latin original it might be regarded as a typical instance of Anglo-Saxon herb-gathering, for the above way of gathering medicinal herbs,with all the accompanying prescriptions and prohibitions, had also to be observed by the Anglo-Saxons. Hoops** was of opinion that if a herb was imported into Northern Europe by the Romans the superstition attached to it was also imported.

*Jacob Grimm, in this instance.
**Johannes Hoops. Studied similar things as Grimm, only way less famous.

Technically, The Dragon's Tongue by Gerald Morgan was a little closer but were of statistics for the amount of money fronted by patrons of the early Welsh press.

Right. Back to drawing for an art project for "Girls Like Us." It was fine untill I realized that I'd have to draw the title page for the comic, and I don't know what half the figures look like. *facepalm*

Stealling this from [ profile] karokegal's "Awesome Celberity Meme" because this was the only interesting answer I had:

Who would you take to a prom/ball with you?

John Barrowman. He can do nice/nice at functions, can dance, and would not lack for conversation which is a definite plus. But he'd have to tell me what he's wearing before hand, so I can pick something that doesn't clash. Because, if it's a ball thing, he'll be wearing a kilt, and there's nothing worse than a pair of escorts clashing. = )

When you see this, post in your own journal with your favorite quote from The Princess Bride. Preferably not "As you wish" or the Inigo Montoya speech.

Movie: "Life is pain! Anybody who tells you anything else is selling you something."

Book: This was, of course, after taxes. Everything came after taxes, including stew.

If I was a bit more together, I'd probably dig out my copy of he book and quote bits of Wesley's "to the pain!" speech or the entire chapter on Fezzik and Indigo going down the stairs in the Zoo of Death.

Well, maybe a bit of the going down into the Zoo of Death:

"I apologize," Indigo said. "One lie in all these years, that's not a bad average considering that it saved our lives."
"There's such thing as principle." was all that Fezzik would answer, and opened the door that led to the fourth level.

Poor Wisota was sick this morning, throwing up stomach acid. So I've been cleaning, and washing my sheets. And doing memes! The first one is above the cut because it's a rather pretty picture. Earlier when I did this same quiz I ended up with "Trailblazer", the main difference was what stood out to me on one picture: The Washington Monument or the crowds afore the Washington Monument.

Your result for The Perception Personality Image Test...

NBDC - The Illusionist

You perceive the world with particular attention to nature. You focus on the hidden treasures of life (the background) and how that is affected by the details of life. You are also particularly drawn towards the colors around you. Because of the value you place on nature, you tend to find comfort in more subdued settings and find energy in solitude. You like to ponder ideas and imagine the many possibilities of your life without worrying about the details or specifics. You are highly focused on specific goals or tasks and find meaning in life by pursuing those goals. You are a down-to-earth person who enjoys going with the flow.
