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 very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

the more psychotic you make yourself sound the better the blog fodder. In reading some of my frequent bloggy haunts I noticed this. One person in particular talks about her self in the third person, tells stories about herself as a princess, and openly admits to having a debate between two of her multiple personalities. The reason this is so humorous and she's not in padded cell lock down is because she outwardly appears normal.
So today's lesson, share the real you behind the veneer whether that veneer is glossy, chipped or cheap formica.

|You Are A Vampire|
You have a real thirst for bliss, and you consider yourself a true hedonist.
And you're not afraid to walk alone in life, if it means getting what you truly crave.
You truly enjoy entrancing people. Not to mention the ensuing pleasures of the flesh.
Your tastes have been called decadent and bizarre. You usually give in to your temptations, no matter how primal
Your greatest power: Your flawless ability to seduce and charm
Your greatest weakness: Human flesh
You play well with: Werewolves
|You Could Definitely Be a Vampire|
Immortality, staying pretty forever, not having to get a job... you could definitely eat some flesh for these things.
It's not that you're a murderer by nature. In fact, you're probably the furthest thing from it.
However, if you woke up a vampire, you'd certainly be able to adapt and enjoy your new lifestyle.
There might not be much better than living forever, even if it means giving up your normal life, but then again it's probably not that normal anyway.
What you would like best about being a vampire: Being with others who are just as ridiculously good looking as you are
What you would like least about being a vampire: No one could fully appreciate your sparkling personality
All I have to say is come and get me ;D
Look it's wonder woman! Only she's traded in those impractical bright shiny boots for more sensible boots that make the ever increasing need for a speedy wardrobe change that much quicker!I really love what they do for my ankles...Could I be more vain?

Today one of my coworkers started accusing people of the most heinous faux pas. For example, he claimed another one of our coworkers loved to watch Knight Rider, and it was among her favorite shows. At which point another one chimed in with this little beauty...I piped up with some slick comments of my own, and then came under attack myself. Except I was accused of watching CHiPS. I remarked "ooh Eric Estrada, how on earth did you know?" With my background in razzing I can take just about as much as I can dish out. Some people don't know how to take a joke, and others know right where to take it.
This afternoon we had the monthly celebratory cake, oddly enough there are no October birthdays in our department. Instead the CFO comes in and just kind of went over the good news for the department. His last announcement was a huge complement to me. In the line up of superiority I'm on the fourth level. CFO being obviously the 1st. He said that this complement came from someone on the sales side of the company, and it was said in front of a lot of important people in the company. The sales manager said that I had brains, always thought of the customer, and had good creative ideas for problem solving. After the little meeting dispersed, I received this gem from one of my coworkers.
I couldn't stop laughing and felt my face flush because I had laughed so loud that most if not all of my department heard me. Enjoy... I might have to remove this for sanity's sake. Just whose sanity though has yet to be determined.
I had never heard of the town of Forks before two weeks ago. Since then I've been obsessed, but just a little. It took me a week to finish the first and there was no doubt about it. I was head over heels. I could tell b/c I was prone to fits of giddy squealing at the mere thought. I read the second one in two days; spending most of the first day crying my little girlie eyes out. But it was short lived, and now I am relatively happy again with the exception of the minor irritations here and there.
To be honest my interest was peeked by none other than these three women. I want to say thank you to all three of you. I don't think I've ever found a book or series for that matter that has sucked me in so completely that I feel emotionally tied to it. There may be one exception to that though ;)
It all began on a warm sandbox evening in October. I had been hearing quite a buzz about this. So I decided while at my local Wally world to pick it up. Oddly enough in so doing I ran into some friends of mine. Funny how that works out. I didn't have much of a chance to read it on that night, friends...geez. ;D
But you bet I did some heavy reading during my trek to and from Glitterfest 2007. My dear sister kept asking me, during the whole time of Glitterfest how much I had read. Obviously in that setting there was little to no progression, as I was surrounded by darling angels quite literally screaming for attention. :D
I could never ignore such
Point of story: I found a man. His name is Edward Cullen.

I received an email request, from a customer no less, that was for their statement dated 10/24/07. I'm seriously NOT KIDDING!
That's exactly what they asked for. I was a little bit flippant in my response when I sent the fax; which I'm sure will come back to bite me in the butt and humble me, but I sent them a copy of the current status of their account. On the cover page I wrote.
"I received your request for the statement dated 10/24/07; however, for obvious reasons, this is the best I could do.
Yeah I know it was rude...totally belongs here, but I laughed pretty hard about it. Not business professional, but very much me.

Now that that's passed... I was reading an article on people who take movies waaay too seriously, and happened to notice a link to the above. I thought it would be interesting to see who all has reached such "heights" of infamy. I knew of at least one person, but to be honest, had nary an idea as to anyone else. I quit watching that show way back when. I was perusing through the "catalog" and happened upon one particular individual.
It shocked me a little to learn that this person's last known residence was less than an hour away from where I currently reside...YIKES! Twitching, shuddering, flinching, and one spastic tick later I realized, "Oh hehe there's no way someone of said infamy would hang out in the vicinity of such a heinous (haha yes I said heinous) crime."
|You Are Cameo|
You are understanding and very empathetic.
You don't tend to have acquaintances. Everyone is your friend.
And all of your friends tend to be friends. You have a knack for bringing very different people together.
|You Should Rule Saturn|
Saturn is a mysterious planet that can rarely be seen with the naked eye.
You are perfect to rule Saturn because like its rings, you don't always follow the rules of nature.
And like Saturn, to really be able to understand you, someone delve beyond your appearance.
You are not an easy person to befriend. However, once you enter a friendship, you'll be a friend for life.
You think slowly but deeply. You only gain great understanding after a situation has past.

In the mean time I leave you with this one....

|What Your Favorite Color Blue Says About You:|
Emotional --- Affected --- Sensitive
Peaceful --- Tranquil --- Connected
Spiritual --- Experimental --- Deep
Anyone?... Anyone?... Bueller?... Bueller? Yes at the bottom of the sign it says or "bring your own pot" admittedly, I noticed that before anything else. Hmmm what are we advertising here? Good authentic soup? or special home grown south of the border-esque herbs? I wonder of Juan Valdez and his donkey have anything to do with it?
So wait what exactly is in that bag? Did anyone ever see Clear & Present Danger?
Sorry, couldn't help myself. Reminiscing about Mr. Ford pre-I wanna be a pirate accompanied by my wench with an eating disorder days. That last one...no telling where that came from, just enjoy the view.
