The Candy Quiz

Tonight was Trick-or-Treat night in our town, so this quiz seemed appropriate...

What Your Love of Peanut Butter Cups Says About You

You are hedonistic... sometimes to the point of being greedy.
You love to eat, and there's no chance you're sharing your candy!

While you may be greedy, it's with good reason. You have great taste.
The things you love are worth loving, and it's no wonder you crave them.

Tuesday Tunes

A musical meme from The Music Memoirs.

There is one week left in the US before the election. Pick one song that best describes the candidate of your choosing and tell us why you picked it.
Changes - Black Sabbath
That song represents him so well that I'd bet you didn't even have to look at my sidebar to know that I'll be voting for Barack Obama.

Manic Monday

What is the greatest value that guides your life?
Love. Simply put, if you fuck with someone or something that I love, you're in for some serious shit! Also, I don't ake well to btrayal. When I give my love and loyalty, I expect it to be returned in kind. Betray me and you'll be sorry.

Fill in the blank:
If I could be anybody besides myself, I would be Hillary Clinton.
Woo hoo! I'd get to be married to Bill!

What is one item in your house that you should really throw out but probably never will?
I'm sitting on it! My desk chair is hideous and all of the padding is coming apart. I've got one of those cushions for kichen chairs on the seat. The thing is comfortable, sturdy, and the correct height for my shortness. It will take a LOT to make me part with it.

Light & L

When going to see a really bad Japanese movie based on your favorite manga, you should always dress as one of the characters.
This is Michael as L with a random stranger dressed as Light...



Personally, I just wore a Death Note T shirt.

A musical meme from The Music Memoirs.

What is the best music to chill out to?
Something acoustic, or instrumental, or BOTH!
We all know that this is my favorite 'chill out' album, don't we?



What artist do you think of when you see the word "calm"?
Calm music isn't exactly my forte...
Gordon Lightfoot is the first artist whose name pops into my mind, since most of his music is acoustic.

How does music help you to become calm or more relaxed?
Quite simply, by giving me something to focus on besides the things that are troubling me.

Do You Smell Something?

It must be me...

You Are a Skunk

You have an incredibly powerful personality. People react strongly to you.
Some people find you totally repulsive, and other people find you extremely appealing.

No matter what people think of you, they do respect you. You demand respect.
You are also a very sexual person. You put off very strong vibes... vibes that never go unnoticed.
