Long Day Silliness Meme Thingy

After a long day of a long week (I know, how could that be possible since it's such a short week - trust me), some silliness. Lotus was over there doing a bunch of memes, and I got tagged for the hardest one, I think, and then I felt the need to comment excessively on each point because that's how I do. Innywho, here goes:

Your Month Meme

Tagged by: Sarcastic Mom (Lotus)

1. Mention the person who tagged you and create a link back to them.
2. Copy-paste the traits for all the twelve months (see below).
3. Pick your month of birth (see below).
4. Highlight the traits that apply to you.
5. Tag 12 people and let them know by visiting their blogs and leaving a comment for them.
6. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve done it!

My birthday is in April, and I think best in bullets. Highlighting as simply yes/no is entirely to difficult for people like me, so I just answered them all with more commentary than they needed.
  • Active and dynamic. Um, I actively visit my refrigerator in round trips, and I do eat a variety of foods depending on mood. Otherwise, no.
  • Decisive and hasty but tends to regret. Absolutely *not* me on the decisive. I can stand at Target tired to the bone staring at variations on the plastic container theme for 15 minutes yet leave empty handed. Without regret.
  • Attractive and affectionate to oneself. I have somewhat attractive and decidedly not attractive moments (sometimes at the same time), but I do not discuss affection with myself publicly, unless that's related to treating myself to lattes - then yes.
  • Strong mentality. Is this like stubborn, strong-willed, opinionated and obstinate? Maybe we are finally getting somewhere.
  • Loves attention. Ha, me? Never. OK, always, from way back. You got me. Except when I'm shy and sincerely don't. This is too complicated to explain.
  • Diplomatic. I try to be, but it's hard when my voice gives away that I'm irate, irritated or just happen to think someone is just dumber than stupid (I don't want to be like this, really, I don't, but it's like my face is a mood ring).
  • Consoling, friendly and solves people’s problems. Yes to the first two. Really. But no to the last part. I have entirely too many problems of my own to run around pretending like I know what's best for anyone else. I'll console you and be your friend while you sort out your own crap. That cool?
  • Brave and fearless. I believe that bravery (and courage for that matter) are all about doing something in spite of your fears, so the two words are almost opposites in my way of thinking. Sometimes I'm brave, but mostly I really am more afraid of my own shadow than most people (though not entirely without reason).
  • Adventurous. To a degree, yes. Living in Japan, traveling to Hong Kong all by my lonesome and *always* wanting to go explore places probably fit, but putting myself in danger or too high off the ground or in a bunch of water or going skiing doesn't thrill me.
  • Loving and caring. If you meow or quack, you have it made. Otherwise there are a lot of variables with better chances if I don't think you are an ass.
  • Suave and generous. Huh? No and not as much as I want to be. Am I done yet?
  • Emotional. I'm *not* emotional, damn it. I just feel things deeply, you insensitive prick.
  • Aggressive. Only passively. So I'm told.
  • Hasty. Didn't I already answer this above? Can we move on already? OK, sometimes. If the question was patience, then no. But hasty is different.
  • Good memory. I have a lot of good memories. I just can't recall where I put them.
  • Moving. I *really* hate moving. We just did it about 6 months ago. Blech.
  • Motivates oneself and others. Motivating others motivates me, especially if the others are quitting smoking via the Chantix route, but otherwise this is a mixed and variable bag.
  • Sickness usually of the head and chest. I do have a feeling I'm sick in the head now that someone was brave enough to ask the question. Not so much in the chest, thankfully, now that I've quit smoking.
  • Sexy in a way that only their lover can see. I'm leaving this one be because I'm not even sure where to go with this, but I did finally shave my legs after longer than I care to admit for the world to know (in case that's related in some way).
Here's where I'm supposed to tag 12 people, but I don't know which 12 people might want to play, so I'm doing my own thing here that might or might not be against the rules (I don't meme much, clearly), and I'm opening this silliness to anyone who wants to play. If you do, please drop me a comment with a link, and I'll edit this post to add you here as if I'd done it the right way all along. Come on, it was kind of fun, and I'm always curious to see how others answer this kind of stuff.
