Thursday Thirteen 5/1/08 - 15th Edition

I don't know why Blogthings understands me like they do with their addictive little quizzes, but frankly, scary as it is, they do seem to have my number and have taught me more about who I am (OK, not quite that dramatic). And, so, I share with you this week...

13 Things I've Learned about Me from Blogthings
(and commentary by me in italics)

Your Personality at 35,000 Says...

1. Deep down, you vastly prefer being with others to being alone. You love to engage people in conversation. (OK, mostly, but I also like being alone and sometimes really don't like people - just saying - but I do love conversation if I have to be around people, well, unless they annoy me.)
2. You don't spend much time thinking about your place in the world. You are who you are - and people can just deal with that!

3. Your gift is having a way with words. You know how to express yourself well.

4. You are inspired by freedom. Whenever you are able to do what you want, good things happen. (Which is precisely why you won't get your money's worth by micromanaging me in a little box with zero autonomy.)

5. You are happy as long as you are given some personal space. It's important for you to have your own private life.

The Personality Test at 35,000 Feet


Your Mouth is a Little Big
(I know, I was shocked by little part, too, but all of the below is true)

6. You're not a total tell all, but you don't hide who you are either.

7. You've struck a good balance between discretion and sharing.

8. People know you fairly well, at least on a superficial level.

9. But you save your most revealing secrets for your best friend... or no one!

Do You Have a Big Mouth?


Your Lucky Underwear is Blue

(right, but we all know all my underwear is hole-y)

10. You are caring and extroverted. You've made relationships your number one focus, and your lucky blue underwear can bring some balance to them.

11. You thrive in one-on-one situations. You are a good listener and a natural born therapist.

12. Sometimes you let the concerns of others become too important in your life, leading to stress and worry.

13. If you want more balance, put on your blue underpants. They'll help you take care of yourself first.

What Color Is Your Lucky Underwear?

  1. Very interesting post. I had to go out and try the "Big Mouth" one. I discovered I don't have a big mouth and that I'm a mystery person to people. I'm not really sure that's right, but oh well!

    Happy TT!

  2. I tried the 35,000 feet one and didn't think it quite matched up, but then I did "what European city do you belong in" and it said London...I adore London. London is my favoritest big city in the world (I haven't been out of the western hemisphere, though...).

    This is a really fun TT! Very imaginative!

  3. I didn't like the results of the first two test, but the last one was cool:

    You're an extremely happy, laid back, fun soul. And your lucky yellow underwear can help you get even more out of life.
    In life, you rather play than work. You're apt to quit any task that doesn't nourish your creativity and inner child.

    Sometimes your drive for freedom hinders your quality of life. You find it impossible to do anything unpleasant.
    If you want to have responsibilities and still have fun, put on your yellow underpants. They'll help you make a party out of the most mundane tasks.

  4. i had to try the underpants quiz -- i was wondering if it would read my mind and figure out that my actual lucky undies are my superhero ones but instead it said my lucky undies are orange! i might have to get me a pair now.

    funny tt!! it must have taken you forever!!!!

  5. Too funny. I have no idea what color my lucky underwear would be..I just grab some and put them on!

    My TT is up, too!

  6. My lucky underwear is clean and isn't so tight that the skin on my waist hangs over. Fun list!

  7. So many of those apply to me, also. No wonder I puffy heart you.

    Awesomely creative TT!
