A bit strange and other things

So, yeah, got to one o'clock in the afternoon today. At work. Suddenly thought to myself "Hang on. I haven't brushed my hair since about this time yesterday".

Er.

Something a bit amiss about that.

UPDATE:

Guess what? My Power Colour is Lime Green. Apparently. This is what that means:

At Your Highest:You are adventurous, witty, and a visionary. This is true. I have many, many adventures and am capable of making hilarious observations about them. Er, and I see stuff lots.

At Your Lowest:You feel misunderstood, like you don't fit in. Yes. It's true. People just don't, like, GET me. I'm very complicated and interesting.

In Love:You have a tough exterior, but can be very dedicated. Tough. Yes. A bit like steel. Or, I suppose, steel with a soft but heart-wrenchingly dedicated-to-stuff centre.

How You're Attractive:Your self-awareness and confidence lights up a room. It's great. People invite me to parties to save on the electricity.

Your Eternal Question:"What else do I need in my life?" It plagues me. Bizarrely the answer often seems to be 'shoes'.

It doesn't mention the fact that I enjoy swinging puppies by their tails and telling small children that Santa Claus doesn't exist. Odd.

Find out what your power colour is, if you like. I mean, you don't HAVE to, I just thought maybe you might enjoy it, or something, but whatever, fine. Don't play then. Oh, actually, do. It's fun. It's like psycho-analysis but, you know, whimsical.

I'm just off to generally be visionary about some things and provide some much-needed light for a room or two.

I'm lime green too:

At Your Highest:

You are adventurous, witty, and a visionary. - However, I haven't had a real adventure in a while. I should look into this.

At Your Lowest:

You feel misunderstood, like you don't fit in. - But hey, someone loves me, right? Right? Please tell me I'm right!

In Love:

You have a tough exterior, but can be very dedicated. - Too many pent up emotions.

How You're Attractive:

Your self-awareness and confidence lights up a room. - I think this is slightly false. Maybe after I chew some Orbit gum, I can blind you with my pearly whites.

Your Eternal Question:

"What else do I need in my life?"

Answer: Eternal Life at my current age.

I seem to be red-orange:

At Your Highest:

You are warm, sensitive, and focused on your personal growth. (That sounds lovely)

At Your Lowest:

You become defensive and critical if you feel attacked. (What are your trying to say?)

In Love:

You are loyal - but you demand the respect you deserve. (That's for damn sure)

How You're Attractive:

You are very affectionate and inspire trust. (Awwwwww)

Your Eternal Question:

"Am I Respected?" (Well? Must I get demanding?)

Fun!

I don't understand - what do you mean by "Santa Claus doesn't exist"?

My power colour is gold - which doesn't sound like me at all.

Favourite bit though...

I also have jumped on the lime green bandwagon (what IS a bandwagon?)

AT YOUR HIGHEST
You are adventurous, witty, and a visionary - reckless rather than adventurous, is sarcasm wit. A visionary? Just no


AT YOUR LOWEST
You feel misunderstood, like you don't fit in - mate, I feel like that when I'm high. I KNOW I don't fit in!

IN LOVE
You have a tough exterior, but can be very dedicated - the use of the word 'dedicated' scares me. Do they mean stalkerish? I have a tough exterior lots of the time, people are scared of me (which makes me laugh)

HOW YOU'RE ATTRACTIVE
Your self-awareness and confidence lights up a room - oh ok, I thought it was my rack that was the main attraction these days!

YOUR ETERNAL QUESTION
"What else do I need in my life?" - "where are all the non-evil boys?", "where are my blue toe socks?", "who ate all the chips?"

Somehow I don't feel unique, and somehow I don't know how red-orange is my power colour. But at least I have one.

Powerful. Like a big Internet rainbow.
I feel we have all looked into our souls and coloured them in with a crayon (neatly, inside the lines, naturally).
I, for one, have grown as a person.
I am also wearing a lime green shell suit.

So I'm gold then, am I. Right.


At Your Highest:

You are engrossed in passions that mentally stimulate you....Engrossed in passion is absolutely me. So engrossed. In so much passion.

At Your Lowest:

You seek thrills and neglect what's important in your life...I'm not too happy about this one. My idea of thrill seeking at the moment is to find a quiet corner, curl up and go to sleep. Or fill out dubious life changing questionnaires on hippy websites.

In Love:

You see dating as adventure and approach it with an open attitude...Everything seems to be an 'adventure' in this survey. I suppose I do often take treasure maps on first dates which can scare people off.

How You're Attractive:

You passion for life makes others passionate about you...Bursting with passion I reckon.

Your Eternal Question:

"Am I Having Fun?" Absolutely. At the moment the answer is a resounding (and passionate) 'No'. Eight hours til I can go home. Leonie - I need you to email me something fun before I 'passionately' go a bit mad.

Leonie,

I've read a few of your entries and you seem like a really nice woman. However, I kinda get the feeling honey that if you just relaxed and really put yourself across, rather than a formulated projection of the kind of person you think people would find interesting, your "column" could be sincerely engaging.

Blogger Bug said...

Huh? She IS engaging, go away

Blogger monkey typist said...

oh, and im magenta (?)

At Your Highest:

You energize yourself and push others to suceed.

At Your Lowest:

You feel frustrated and totally overwhelmed.

In Love:

You are suprised by who you attract. You're a love magnet.

How You're Attractive:

Open and free spirited, people want to explore the world with you.

Your Eternal Question:

"What is my next source of inspiration?"

....apparently!
i plan to do the who's your daddy test very soon

Oh my god. Spam City, Arizona.

Oh, and Anonymous? 'Honey'? [cue obscure springer-esque finger clicking motion] Léonie rules. And your patronising post sucks. So bog off.

Gold. Says it all really. I mean, come on, was there ever going to be another colour for such a wholesome, well-rounded person as myself. Gold Gold Gold. Love it.

I particularly like:

In Love:

You see dating as adventure and approach it with an open attitude.

In other words, I like to take my dates white-water rafting followed by a sky-dive, and am basically a whore due to my open attitude. Which is of course entirely accurate.

Why have I only just realised that all of life's answers lie on inane internet sites. Duh.
