Boy, it really has been a long time since I've actually written much of anything on here, hasn't it? I think I got out of the habit of writing while the Winter funk was swirling around in my brain. I don't usually find this the place to express my inner most feelings(squish squish) and I don't really enjoy being super serious on my blog. I also don't hang on a thought long enough to be interesting most days.
Considering I tend to prefer intake to being the main voice in the room, I would rather look in on you folks, or read/watch/listen to the clever people around me than come up with my own topics for presentation. Of course, it could just be because I'm as slow as MOlasses being quietly released from the tiniest of spickits. (Spickit isn't a word? I'm pretty sure other people say this so I'm going with it.) Maybe if Spellcheck approved of me more....
>>Update: OH SPIGOT! Right Right! I didn't try that one. Wordlilly's got my back!
But, now that I've broken the seal on the syrup bottle, I might as well share a few tidbits about lil' ole me. Fairly recently, among many many more meaningful and world changing epic things, I've made a hobby out of taking Facebook quizzes.
Yes it IS awesome-I KNOW!
ANYway, I've taken a few of those lately upon check-in and have decided they are curiously helpful in explaining some key pieces to this peculiar being we call SHAN.
So now with much testing and without further ado, here's what I now know about myself:
1) If I were a dog I would be an AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERD.
Hmm...Ok. Family oriented, reserved but not to be taken for shy or insecure(still up in the air at this point) and extremely hairy if I recall from the picture.
Upon reflection, there was a time when I had to beg my mom to let me shave my legs before debuting my pep club uniform at school in 7th grade. I guess that was when my hairiness was at its pinnacle. No young lady wants to be known as "Chimp-the other mascot" during those tender middle school years. "This breed is not for everyone" rings true here as well.
2)I TYPE roughly 47 words per minute currently-which beats my all time high in high school of 37. Blogging is honing my skill beautifully. I'm really a marvel to behold after twenty something short years.
3)Typing tests won't keep me from what I was meant to do, however, and it was incredibly keen on Facebook's part to realize the JOB MOST SUITED TO ME is...pause for dramatic effect..
But how did they..? (fanning eyes, gulping and rolling lips inward)
4)The next test, though entirely separate, continued with my natural leanings. For what better place to dance than the CITY assigned to me? NYC, NEW YORK!! Start spreadin' the news, I'm leavin' as soon as the recession ends.
5)Why not? I already have the NORTHERN AMERICAN ACCENT fully in place, even if I've only lived in Oklahoma and Arkansas. I feel certain I could do a convincing Boastonian as well. Geography can't quiet the yankee in me!
6)But if I get no roles because my jealous GREEN HEART gets the best of me.. (What do they know anyway. Those girls are all lights-no music. I'm the real thing. With a little cosmetic surgery, a full-time nanny and several years of physical training, why I could..)
7)As a fallback, I might get in the mix and do what comes natural for me as a SOCIAL REFORM THEORIST. Because, I've now been likened to VOLTAIRE, and that's just the way I think. (If I understood or cared a lick about such philosophical things.)
8)What else would make my WRITING STYLE resemble VIRGINIA WOOLF'S? She and I...well apparently though brilliant woman's libbers, tending to be a wee suicidal at times, are/were certainly all about the stream-of-conciousness writing style. Did I eat breakfast? Oh look, my nails have grown!
9)Though I'm a little on the high maintenance side, if in fact I were a CLASSIC NOVEL, blog friend Robyn would appreciate me-as testing proves me to be the book TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. Ah, but I realize now that's just the social reformer working itself out again. Tell true Facebook. Tell true.
10)It's really what you can expect from a WHOLE BRAINED person like myself. I'm rare in that sense. So uniquely even minded I am, that I'm teriffically mediocre at almost everything! I eat and write with the left hand, but sport and support with the right. I have a moderate amount of interest in the Arts as well as the Sciences but neither ignites a complete fire in my....
11)FEMALE BRAIN. I'm just too girly for passion I s'pose. ( Titter titter titter-squeak!)
So there it is. My homemade compilation meme. Feel free to hunt down and take all of these quizzes yourself. It can be worked into any schedule with just a few minutes a day over several weeks time. I can't honestly think of what I would have done without knowing what flavor of ice cream I am- not that I would share that with you now and end on such a cold note.
I wonder if there is a casserole quiz...uummm..I'm hungry. What would Facebook make of this new finding?
