you are mediumauqamarine

Your dominant hues are cyan and green. Although you definately strive to be logical you care about people and know there's a time and place for thinking emotionally. Your head rules most things but your heart rules others, and getting them to meet in the middle takes a lot of your energy some days.

Your saturation level is medium - You're not the most decisive go-getter, but you can get a job done when it's required of you. You probably don't think the world can change for you and don't want to spend too much effort trying to force it.

Your outlook on life is brighter than most people's. You like the idea of influencing things for the better and find hope in situations where others might give up. You're not exactly a bouncy sunshine but things in your world generally look up.

Almost a third of Georgia Republicans appear to be willing to break ties with their country.

A new poll by the Daily Kos finds 32 percent would favor seceding from the United States. 18 percent of Georgians overall favor separating from the union.

Last week, Georgia Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine, a Republican candidate for governor, said that, if he was elected, he would reaffirm Georgia sovereignty under the 10th Amendment.

In Texas, a full 48 percent of Republicans polled favored secession.

Your Door Says You Are Absurdly Fanciful

You are daring, unusual, and extravagant.

You are like an eccentric wealthy person...

Even if you don't have the money to back it up yet.

You crave luxury. You love to feel rich.

You are Apricot

Soft and sweet, you let your provocative nature shine through.

You have a true love for all people. You try to build a bridge between differences.

You are definitely unconventional, but you don't broadcast it. You are good at getting along.

You offer people a fresh perspective on life - so fresh that it can be shocking!

America is not pre-WWII Germany, Obama is not Hitler, you are not greatly suffering because the guy you didn't vote for won.

That is all.

I always thought one of the worst things about Twilight was that the vampires had nothing better to do then go to high school, play baseball, or stalk boring teenage girls. You're a vampire, you're going to live forever! Go do interesting stuff.

Anyway, I wouldn't manage baseball-playing vampires. I would get a female vampire roller derby team. At least beat people up, if you're not going to cure cancer or run amok in Venice.

I can't even remember where I found But I like the "On Hollywood's Strong, Self-Hating Women"
article. Its by a guy! And he talks sense! And I want to meet him and give him a hug. But, as a stereotypical member of my generation, I need more stimulation then that podcast-thingy gave me. Dang, dude has a calm voice. I wanted to listen to the others, but they made me tired. So yeah.

Maybe Australian Gamer's podcasts have spoiled me. And yes, I know I'm not Australian. But I'm a gamer, and one out of two ain't bad. But I digress. They have much more... animation in their voices. I'm really trying to sound nice about this, because I genuinely liked his points and his views, and I don't want to just yell "BE MORE INTERESTING!" at the guy.

Okay, so, why The Snow Man matter to me, in 500 words or less. Or, at least, one hopes.

I think that you should not talk about things you don't know anything about. For instance, having never been homeless, talked to more than five homeless people, or done any research on the subject, I can't really talk about how they're just lazy. I do believe in "write what you know," but I think they make it too limiting. Women can write male characters, and men can write female characters. They can even do it well! But they should work at it, and think about it.

Anyway, what really got me on not assuming was two things in my life, which I will now put forward to you, in chronological order. this is a good time, I think )

When I was younger, I decided I hated poetry. This was partially because I decided at about eight that I would not be girly in any way, shape, or form. I would not like pink, I would not wear dresses, I would not bathe**, and I wouldn't let Mommy brush my hair. People were already calling me a tomboy, so I decided to own it. blah, blah, blah )

Today I chose to share with you part of the wonderful wackiness that is me*.

I am afraid of lawnmowers. I actually have a good reason for it (as far as these things go), but I won't share that because it's funnier without context.

*You see what I did there, making it sound like I'm doing you a favor? I'm feeling substantially un-humble today.
orange_prose: She-devil from Echo Bazaar (Default) has a list of protests in 50 cities. I'm not really close to any of them, but hey. Go forth and protest for me, tens of readers!

Or don't. That's cool too.

So the Harry Potter movie, combined with the music video of We Lost You by Sepultura* made me think of this

People over five-years-old in matching clothing kinda creep me out. Especially when they also look alike. Those twins in the Slug Club** made me make all these worried faces. And during the Christmas party! You'd think one'd look at the other, go "ew," and wear something else. When you're dressing yourself but still dressing like your sister/brother, I expect some weird things to happen. Like, one of you's evil and going to go all Single White Female.

Anyway, just a random thought.

*Here it is, in case you want to listen with me:
The people in the same clothes are in the background in one part, and aren't important.

**They were not the Patil twins. I hope.

I think that Michael Steele (as in the chairman of the Republican National Committee) is crazy nuts. That is all.

Okay, that's not all. A quote from him, taken out of context because I'm part of the feminist, liberal media.

"The difference is, Barack Obama has asked your generation to wear his hat — the hat of one man. I'm asking you to go out and ask your friends to wear our hat -– the hat of an idea."

So, do y'all wear Obama's hat?

I watched a new show on the SciFi channel yesterday. The channel is important, because they actually now call themselves the SyFy channel, but I and my mom decided that that is stupid and we are going to ignore it. We think it is trying to make them seem young so that they can attract new people.

Anyway, the show was called Warehouse 13, and it was good! It had explosions and a mystery and a girl who might be psychic! I liked it, but I'm not going to tell you any more about it, because I want everyone to see it so that SciFi won't cancel it for something crappy. I will be heartbroken.

My only complaint was that the woman was all angry-face throughout the show, while the guy actually liked weird stuff (and cookies! There is a running joke about cookies.). Why are the girls never any fun?

And, [ profile] mightycarrot, there is a ferret!

[Error: unknown template qotd]



Anyway, ask me again when men have their penises cut off at thirteen so they can never enjoy sex with anyone ever. Or when they can't go outside without a female to watch them. Or if they get shot for being raped, and their sister gets shot too because she should have prevented it. Or even when they make seventy-five cents and a woman makes a dollar for the same job, at the same company, when the woman is right beside them on the assembly line.

Or failing all of this, when someone but me answers this without bullshit about make-up and periods.
