Created with Rum and Monkey's Personality Test Generator.
I'm both orderly and rational. I value control, information, and order. I love structure and hierarchy, and will actively use whatever power or knowledge I have to maintain it. At best,
I am lawful and insightful; at worst, I am bureaucratic and tyrannical.

Great...I a Rules Lawyer. *chuckle* Those assholes always piss me off... :P

Daily dawns another day;
I must up, to make my way.
Though I dress and drink and eat,
Move my fingers and my feet,
Learn a little, here and there,
Weep and laugh and sweat and swear,
Hear a song, or watch a stage,
Leave some words upon a page,
Claim a foe, or hail a friend-
Bed awaits me at the end.

Though I go in pride and strength,
I'll come back to bed at length.
Though I walk in blinded woe,
Back to bed I'm bound to go.
High my heart, or bowed my head,
All my days but lead to bed.
Up, and out, and on; and then
Ever back to bed again,
Summer, Winter, Spring, and Fall-
I'm a fool to rise at all!

Why don't I look like a fitness model? Really, the answer is obvioius. But my internal voices on the subject are complex.

Thankfully Krista pretty much sums it up without me having to do too much heavy lifting.*

Still, the reminders (to myself) are good ones.

*Yes, it is a bad pun. Thank you for noticing!  *chuckle*

I Am A: True Neutral Human Druid/Ranger (3rd/2nd Level)

Ability Scores:







True Neutral A true neutral character does what seems to be a good idea. He doesn't feel strongly one way or the other when it comes to good vs. evil or law vs. chaos. Most true neutral characters exhibit a lack of conviction or bias rather than a commitment to neutrality. Such a character thinks of good as better than evil after all, he would rather have good neighbors and rulers than evil ones. Still, he's not personally committed to upholding good in any abstract or universal way. Some true neutral characters, on the other hand, commit themselves philosophically to neutrality. They see good, evil, law, and chaos as prejudices and dangerous extremes. They advocate the middle way of neutrality as the best, most balanced road in the long run. True neutral is the best alignment you can be because it means you act naturally, without prejudice or compulsion. However, true neutral can be a dangerous alignment because it represents apathy, indifference, and a lack of conviction.

Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Primary Class:
Druids gain power not by ruling nature but by being at one with it. They hate the unnatural, including aberrations or undead, and destroy them where possible. Druids receive divine spells from nature, not the gods, and can gain an array of powers as they gain experience, including the ability to take the shapes of animals. The weapons and armor of a druid are restricted by their traditional oaths, not simply training. A druid's Wisdom score should be high, as this determines the maximum spell level that they can cast.

Secondary Class:
Rangers are skilled stalkers and hunters who make their home in the woods. Their martial skill is nearly the equal of the fighter, but they lack the latter's dedication to the craft of fighting. Instead, the ranger focuses his skills and training on a specific enemy a type of creature he bears a vengeful grudge against and hunts above all others. Rangers often accept the role of protector, aiding those who live in or travel through the woods. His skills allow him to move quietly and stick to the shadows, especially in natural settings, and he also has special knowledge of certain types of creatures. Finally, an experienced ranger has such a tie to nature that he can actually draw on natural power to cast divine spells, much as a druid does, and like a druid he is often accompanied by animal companions. A ranger's Wisdom score should be high, as this determines the maximum spell level that he can cast.

True Neutral....huh....who'da thunk it?

[Error: unknown template qotd]

“Shouldn’t have”? Well – the timing was certainly off. I met my husband while I was still in the process of living through the very long, drawn out and painful end of my prior relationship. As a result, we became friends over the course of a couple years, both secretly harboring greater emotions, both convinced that the other person didn't share our interest, both resolved to the idea that our feelings would never amount to anything more. Then, after a particularly rough couple of months with the ex, I found myself sitting in tent across the table from my “friend” as he attempted to casually tell me he thought I was beautiful. His ‘off hand’ remark came out a bit more serious than he intended, and my heart both sang and sank at the same time. Sank, because I realized that the man I was with had never expressed the same feeling; sang because this crack in the just-friends armor let me see that I wasn’t the only one hoping that we’d end up closer.

I left the man I was with that week and have never looked back.

My husband and I will be celebrating our fifth anniversary this October. Things haven’t always been golden (we’re both exceedingly stubborn and opinionated people), but they have always been right. We didn’t know we’d end up at the altar when we started, and it has made every step along the way an honest gift.

I love you honey. Always.

To the 20 Year Old Me,

I am writing to thank you for a few things that you may not realize are worth your future self’s gratitude.

First of all, thank you for being spontaneous and fearless. Yes, fearless. I know you think that you spend all day hemmed in by choices, but be sure to appreciate how often you just *do* the deed and deal with the consequences if/when they come. This has gotten your hand slammed by the cookie jar lid a number of times, but it has also gotten you a lot of delicious cookies.

Thank you for taking your college classes seriously, I know you will keep showing up all the way until the end. The work may not get you what you are looking for, but it holds all the real lessons you needed. While I am at it, be sure to keep insisting on taking all those dance classes (even though they “don’t have a practical application” and will probably wreck your knees). Totally. Worth it.

Finally, thank you for following your heart even when it leads you into the weeds. Nice guys, jerks, they’ll all show you things you need to know. I know right now it’s hard to see how the tears are going to help you in the end.

They will.

Now go play hooky, eat a pint of ice cream and kiss someone who sends your heart (and your knickers) flying! The bumps and bruises make for wonderful memories. 

Always Remember Your Star,

I think it's inevitable that as we read each other's journals we create mental pictures of each other. Post this on your own journal to find out who your friends see when they read about your life.

Two Rules:
1) The person you "see" must be in the movies or on TV (but doesn't have to be an actor/actress). The person can be specific to a role or character or just the person.

2) Post a picture of that person.
2a) Repost to your own journal.

Many thanks to Shani (via Ta-Nehisi Coates' normal blog on The Atlantic) for the introduction to Holla Back DC and Holla Back NY.

I think that all women have experienced street harassment and that most would agree that this particular for of “expressing one’s appreciation” is not appreciated. This goes well beyond Strange Danger and into realms of female objectification and degradation that can be truly mind blowing. Who honestly things it does women any favors to shout sexual comments at them in public, photograph their body parts (either on the sly or in the open) or ‘accidently’ touch them in an intimate manner?

*mind boggles*

And yet, I understand why folks are uncomfortable with taking a picture of harassers and posting them on the interwebz (along with an account of their behavior); because nice girls don’t tell/complain/make a fuss.

What a crock of shit that value system is.

But there it is.

*points at self* “Not a nice girl.”

Thankfully, I can honestly say that this sort of thing hasn’t happened to me in the recent past, but I can tell you I know it will happen again. Just not when. Now to remember to tell off the person who does it off, clearly and with emphasis.

Your Brain is 40% Female, 60% Male
You have a total boy brain
Logical and detailed, you tend to look at the facts
And while your emotions do sway you sometimes...
You never like to get feelings too involved

Although, strangely, I have become more emotional as I get older....*hum*

Golden Retriever

The Charmer

Laid-back, sociable and well-groomed, you've got your own hip little pack of groupies who just love to be around you. You have a brain inside that adorable little head of yours, though you use it mostly to organize your hectic social calendar. You never poop out at parties, and since you're popular with ladies and men, as well as children and adults, you dish out your wit, charm and luck to whomever is close enough to bask in it. The top dog likes you and wants to be your best friend, despite the fact that he doesn't really know what the heck you do. No one does, in fact, but everyone loves you all the same. A true foodie, you’ve got your keen ears fine-tuned to make sure you don't miss out on the opening of a trendy new place to nosh. But your youthful days of being able to wolf down food 24-7 are wagging behind you, meaning you've got to watch what you eat so you don’t pull a Brando and outgrow your coats.

Your result for Which Chess Piece are You Test?...

The Knight's City Guard

The Knight’s City Guard is characterized by the desire to serve others in times of need. Sometimes this drive is so powerful that the standard ‘give-and-take’ is unsatisfying. They are bound very much to social convention and don’t like to include moral or political controversy. The City Guard is often forgotten because they are so reliable. They are loyal and great producers of quality – which end up allowing others to take for granted what the City Guard gives. They are hurt by being treated as a doormat but are unwilling to toot their own horn about accomplishments. This is due to that it feels somewhat wrong to want a reward for doing work which is a virtue in itself.

The City Guard can be overworked and suffer from self inflicted headaches. They are methodical workers with good memories and analytical abilities. They are great in small groups because of their patience. They make pleasant co-workers and better employees. They tend to feel a bit harried by supervisory roles. They form strong loyalties of a personal nature. This is opposed to institutional loyalty. If someone leaves the company that’s close to this type – they may leave as well. They are perfect as teachers, administrators, clerics and fit right in amongst nursing or medical careers.

The Knight’s City guard is concerned with harmony and traditional behavior. They have a few close friends and are extremely loyal. Don’t confront them, they hate that. Also if the Knight’s City Guard is moody – it could be because they haven’t shared something of importance. Most friends of the City Guard feel ashamed later when finding out why the Guard refused to share the source of their trouble. This ‘Pawn’ is wonderful because they are the diplomat of emotions and needs. They are society’s most constructive and protective member.

Sphinx, by Hrana Janto

You are the Sphinx. She was a monster who killed for the intellectual joy of it. It was only Oedipus solving her riddle that killed her - she threw herself off a cliff. She kept an entire country under her paw in a reign of terror.
