Pretty accurate results

you are lavender

Your dominant hue is blue, making you a good friend who people love and trust. You're good in social situations and want to fit in. Just be careful not to compromise who you are to make them happy.

Your saturation level is very low - you have better things to do than jump headfirst into every little project. You make sure your actions are going to really accomplish something before you start because you hate wasting energy making everyone else think you're working.

Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.

And a FIVE BOOK MEME from heartofdavid:


1. Take five books off your bookshelf.

2. Book #1 -- first sentence: Mrs Dalloway said she would buy the flowers herself.

3. Book #2 -- last sentence on page fifty: Such a lovely day!

4. Book #3 -- second sentence on page one hundred: 'We were expecting you sooner,' Robert said.

5. Book #4 -- next to the last sentence on page one hundred fifty: That should do.

6. Book #5 -- final sentence of the book: I took a taxi back to the shop, it was that kind of day.

7. Make the five sentences into a paragraph:

I took a taxi back to the shop, it was that kind of day. Such a lovely day! 'We were expecting you sooner,' Robert said. Mrs Dalloway said she would buy the flowers herself. That should do.

8. Feel free to "cheat" to make a better paragraph:

Alternatively: Such a lovely day! Mrs Dalloway said she would buy the flowers herself. That should do. I took a taxi back to the shop, it was that kind of day. 'We were expecting you sooner,' Robert said.

9. Name your sources:

Book 5 – Russell Hoban – Turtle diary
Book 4 – Jeanette Winterson – Oranges are not the only fruit
Book 3 – Ian McEwan – The comfort of strangers
Book 2 – Fay Weldon – Female friends
Book 1 – Virginia Woolf – Mrs Dalloway

10. Post to your blog.

Yeah, I know, I'm sorry...

...but I'm just not in the mood for any serious posts at the moment. And I really liked these:

You scored as Artistic. Congratulations, you scored Artistic. You're looking for the unique movie in the bunch. You've probably watched a lot of movies that nobody has ever heard of, and good for you. You also know good filmmaking when you see it. You just get it, no questions asked. Check out: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Amelie, Garden State, Lost in Translation.

You scored as The Red Queen. You have control issues, you anger easily, your favorite color is red, and you've always wanted to roll someone's head. Can anyone say, "Anger Management?"

Music question (and some other stuff)

Before I turn to a specialized community, I thought I'd ask my music-loving friends:

I heard an old soul song on the radio, and I couldn't think of the band or the title (it was a non-stop music programme). I fed bits of the lyrics into Google, but nothing turned up, which surprised me, because it's not an obscure track or anything. Nice bass line, not a ballad; early '70s, I would say, sung by a man, girls' vocal backing. This is the chorus:

talkin' 'bout the ghetto,
ghetto, that's my home
(it's where we live, where we live)"

I am almost sure the song title is "... it up", only the first word is unclear. "Bring", perhaps?

Help, anyone?

EDIT: All of a sudden my brain started working again and I thought "Clean it up"! Googled it, and hey presto: "Let's clean up the ghetto" by The Philadelphia International All-Stars, either from 1973 or 1977 (conflicting info). Yes, now I remember! And the lyrics are not on the Net, more people seem to be looking for them.

This morning I was having a nightmare about a scary museum when I was rudely awakened by the doorbell. It turned out to be the postman with a package for my neighbour, who was out. By the time I could write down my dream, much of it had become vague. Which was a shame, because the clearer, the easier it is to recognize where it comes from and to rationalize it. It was even more of a shame that when I set the alarm on my clock radio last night I had apparently forgotten to check the volume: it was off and therefore failed to wake me up 45 minutes earlier, which would have prevented me from having the nightmare in the first place.

(And I had forgotten to turn off my mouse and modem last night! It was only 2:40 or so, I wasn't that sleepy! Hrmm...)

Clean-up time

It's been a while since my last entry. The end of the year is a good time for decluttering, so, as I have nothing interesting to write, I had a look at some quiz results I had stored on my computer and am posting the ones I like here, so I can trash them all.

You're Monet!! Fuzzy and romantic, your art is
destined to hang on every college freshman
girls' dorm room wall until the end of time.

On the slippery slope again

From bluestranger:

1. Pick something on my interests list that you also like. Why do you like it?
2. Pick something on my interests list that you don't like. Why don't you like it?
3. Pick something that is on my interests list that surprises you. Why does this surprise you?
4. Pick something that is on my interests list that you know next to nothing about. What do you *think* it is?
5. Pick something that you think should be on my interests list. Why do you think it should be there?

I am very curious to hear your opinions, so what do you all think?

From ankhgrl49:

Your Dominant Intelligence is Linguistic Intelligence

You are excellent with words and language. You explain yourself well.
An elegant speaker, you can converse well with anyone on the fly.
You are also good at remembering information and convincing someone of your point of view.
A master of creative phrasing and unique words, you enjoy expanding your vocabulary.

You would make a fantastic poet, journalist, writer, teacher, lawyer, politician, or translator.

Yesterday and today I spent way too much time at the computer again. So I'm going to log off now, make a quick to-do list for tomorrow, go to bed, rise at a decent hour and ACCOMPLISH THINGS! So there.
