Birthday Month Meme Amusement
I have mentioned before that I read the blog by Barb Cooper, currently a local humor writer, soon to be a distant humor writer. She is always wanting to be tagged for memes, and answering ones she isn't tagged for, anyway. In her honor, I am doing this one that she was tagged for but I was not (cause she doesn't tag me in this semi-hidden blog, anyway). I just laughed and laughed at the whole concept, so will play along.
She said in her blog: "Okay, this meme asks you to take the attributes supposedly associated with your birth month (February) and talk about how they apply to you. Pay no attention to the fact that they seem to have been randomly generated by some astrological parody engine or a house elf or something."
She's right, they are pretty funny and random, but some hit the nail on the head for this Child of March (depicted by the lovely aquamarine crystal above). Here are my reactions...
Attractive personality. Not sure what I attract other than inappropriate partners (before the autumn of 2006, of course) but sure, yeah, I must attract something.
Sexy. As long as Lee thinks I am, I will buy into that. I do not really care if anyone else thinks so.
Affectionate. In my own not-too-touchy-feely way, sure. I am more mentally affectionate.
Shy and reserved. Well, as I will tell anyone, I am a well-socialized introvert. I actually AM shy, I just may not appear to be due to my stellar acting abilities in public situations.
Secretive. Absolutely positootely. And I will not tell you why or in what way.
Naturally honest, generous and sympathetic. And that has been my undoing more than once. But, I like being that way, really.
Loves peace and serenity. I don't call myself a pacifist for nothing. And there's a reason I flee conflict. Love that peace and serenity and would like it as much as possible all day all the time.
Sensitive to others. Very. Usually a good thing. Especially when I can spot a predator, mean person, or person liable to harm others in a flash. Not good when I see that someone has chosen such a person as a partner. Hard to keep my mouth shut.
Loves to serve others. Fraid so. All those years at the Dysfunctional Nonprofit Organization speak to that.
Easily angered. It takes a while to build up, actually, but once the trigger hits, I guess.
Trustworthy. Trust me; I am. Or ask my friends and family if you refuse to trust my self-reported trustworthiness.
Appreciative and returns kindness. I am always surprised when anyone is kind to me, and I am not sure why that is. I really enjoy being kind to others.
Observant and assesses others. Very much so. I am perhaps too observant at times. My assessments are usually accurate and I sure get pissed off at myself if they are not.
Revengeful. Maybe when younger. I think I have drummed that out of myself.
Loves to dream and fantasize. I'm a Pisces; what do you expect? Yeah. Much of my life I have been more in the fantasy world than the real one. Lately it's been more real.
Loves traveling. Absolutely, though I also love home. I like to see different things and see how other people live.
Loves attention. Look at meeee, look at meeeee. This is another thing I have worked on lessening.
Hasty decisions in choosing partners. BWA HA HA. This is the one that had me literally ROFL-ing. Yep, I have always been hasty. That's why I tried to ignore all the signals between Lee and me and go as slowly as I could. Still, once we were together, we were hastily partners. He was born in March, too, ya know.
Loves home decors. Or office cubicle decor.
Musically talented. I do like to sing, and read music fairly well. Lots of people are more talented, but I enjoy what I have.
Loves special things. I didn't know what this meant, but if it means I have sentimental attachments to objects, I do. Thus, the clutter of "special items" in the house.
Moody. Overly, perhaps.
By the way, Barb posted all the months' supposed attributes if you want to wax eloquent about yourself and your month (scroll past the discussion of a book about sex ed for young girls, or not, as you wish).
