Your result for The Useful Relationship Skills Test…

The Catch

85% Knowledgeable!

Wow… none too shabby, hot stuff! The test probably wasn’t all that easy, but you showed some solid efforts (perseverance is an excellent trait in a partner).

There’s always something we could be doing better. Don’t rest on your laurels: build on your current awareness and skills to become an even BETTER partner and fulfilled person.

There’s always so much depth and complexity to people & the way we’re wired. Dig deeper. Take another look at your test results, and be inspired to research concepts of communication, responsibility, and fighting fair… or anything else you think might make your relationships really zing.

Human beings are very complex systems. There’s a lot to learn, not just about relating, but of oneself. Being in a good relationship improves one’s longevity and health. You owe it to yourself to find out more!

Your result for The Social Persona Test (Version 2.5)…

The Renaissance Faire Wench (QLAF)

Quirky Liberal Alpha Female

You are perhaps the most popular result on OKCupid, but don’t worry, you are anything but common. I’m guessing you are quite flirtatious, but you are hardly reliant on men. You like to do things the mainstream would consider strange, (like dress in costume, perhaps?), but this gives you an irresistible allure. Eat, drink, and be merry, but make sure whoever you date respects you and does not take advantage of your laid-back attitude. (BTW, you are likely the only type who can see The Sports Spectator (NLBM) for who he is, helping him to bring out the Manga Geek (QLBM) inside. This does not mean you have to date one, however. You are quite flexible and can enjoy the company of many of the types.)

PS: You are one of my favorite types to date. If you happen to be between 20 and 30 and live in New England or the Tri-state area, perhaps you would like to send me a message.

–BookWyrm85 😀

You are more QUIRKY than NORMAL.

You are more LIBERAL than TRADITIONAL.

You are more DOMINANT than PASSIVE.

When picking a date, consider: The Lord of the Misfits (QLAM), The Fratt Boy (NLAM), The Snowball’s Chance in Hell (QTBM), The Manga Geek (QLBM), or The Sports Spectator (NLBM).

>I just watched this, for two reasons: 1. Nothing else on 2. I liked Jonny Lee Miller in Eli Stone, and wanted to see if I would like him in something else. I did. I wasn’t going to watch it based on a couple of reviews I read, but I’m glad I did. It could have been dull and boring…..it was mainly about a group of men sitting around a table discussing how to end apartheid…..but instead, it was riveting. The writing, the acting, the directing made this a show that kept me on the edge of my seat. What goes on behind closed doors when good men who start out distrustful and even afraid of one another but slowly come to realize that they are the same, and working for the same goals, albeit in very different ways at the start. The evil that some men do in order to gain and keep power. In this instance, the good men won out. At the end, when Nelson Mandela made his first public appearance after 27 years of prison, they all looked like they wanted to jump up and down with excitement, and so did I. That is a good show, made more so because it was true. I recommend this, says the first-time television critic. *very big grin*

>It Works!

>Things are so much easier when someone shows you how to do them. *smile* Thanks. I picked this first song for you, new friend. It’s from Winter Sonata, a Korean program. I used to get the Asian channel and this show was on it. Loved it. Bought the DVD set. It has subtitles, I don’t speak Korean. I barely speak English some days.


Yes, I am one. I got up at 8am. Yay, me. I was going to get myself together enough to go downstairs and get the mail I haven’t gotten since sometime last week. Instead, I made coffee and fired up the old pc. Checked out some blogs, decided to try to add the youtube side thingies that are on the Moonlit blog, tried and tried and could not succeed. Gave up. Decided to put labels on my blog posts. Just finished. Still in pajamas, still haven’t had any food, still haven’t gotten the mail. It’s like I’m glued to the computer. LOLOL Oh, well. I have fun and meet new people and see and read so many things I would never even know about without my little desktop. Today I’m googling Finland. Life is good. But if my new friend (I hope) from the Moonlit blog reads this, maybe he can tell me how to add those sidebar widgets. *smile*

>And I Am……….

>Interesting. (Not me, the results.) I prefer truth, I like to know where I stand with people. My life was torn apart more than once and I had to start anew, learning and growing and becoming more certain of who I am each time it happened. I became a student of zen, although not formally a buddhist. I learned to cope with my illness, I learned to fight off the depression, although that can be very difficult at times. I learned to appreciate change, not fear it. Life has been very good to me, I think.

You are The Tower

Ambition, fighting, war, courage. Destruction, danger, fall, ruin.

The Tower represents war, destruction, but also spiritual renewal. Plans are disrupted. Your views and ideas will change as a result.

The Tower is a card about war, a war between the structures of lies and the lightning flash of truth. The Tower stands for "false concepts and institutions that we take for real." You have been shaken up; blinded by a shocking revelation. It sometimes takes that to see a truth that one refuses to see. Or to bring down beliefs that are so well constructed. What’s most important to remember is that the tearing down of this structure, however painful, makes room for something new to be built.

>Is It Just Me?

>I was just watching Madmen, a great show, when they had a Clorox commercial. At one point it said, ….your mother, your grandmother, they all did laundry. A couple of men, too.

Is it just me, or is there a certain innuendo there? Maybe I’ve been reading too much Torchwood fan fiction. *Hangs head in shame* LOL

>Oh, people……

I have sixty-six feeds in my Google Reader. Between that, email, and reading Torchwood fan fiction, I am spending my life in this chair, at this desk, with this computer. I am quite enjoying myself, since my real life is sooooooo not filled with anything at all (thank you, illness)but really….am I just hiding in my cyberworld? Do I care? Am I happy? I am. I really am. Crazy can be fun.


>Fire scares me. In Colorado, I once saw a woman being taken into the ambulance after her house burned. She looked like she had a really deep suntan. She died. When I lived in NH, there was the horrific Malden Mills fire in Methuen, Mass. I remember the story about one man that was written long afterwards. It still haunts me. Then there was the Station Fire in Pawtucket, RI. I cannot imagine. Fire. It scares me.

But fire is beautiful, as well. The post was instpired by this video:


but I had already saved some pictures of fire that are beautiful.

Fire. It scares me and it’s beautiful.


>A comment from this excellent post on invisibility:


“I was so grateful when I got my cane, because it gave me an excuse to ask for seats on the bus, or first dibs on the elevator. (Though, my school keeps its elevators accessible by making sure they’re slow, small, smell of pee, and placed where no one not following the tiny wheelchair signs will find them.) I also found that my anxiety had a lot to do about it, since I have social anxiety–on days when I had more mental spoons, I had the resources to just stand still on the escalator and put up with everyone else’s angry glares. When I didn’t have the spoons I wanted to apologize for sharing anybody’s air, and was willing to walk and take the stairs the long way round, just so I didn’t “inconvenience” anyone.”

I like the idea of ‘mental spoons’, since I also have social anxiety. Some days I am up for going across the street to the convenience store by myself, and some days I cannot muster the courage. Thinking of it in the ‘spoons’ metaphor I think will help me come to terms better each time this comes up.

>Random Thoughts

>I don’t. So I am having random thoughts about finding a baseball bat and doing some damage to the ole pc. Well, maybe not, but why doesn’t the darn thing just work like it’s supposed to?

The latest update screwed things up. After the reboot, after everything loaded and worked for about a minute…….total freeze-up. Hard shutdown, rinse, repeat. Many times. Safe mode? HAH! Useless to me. Finally got it to do a system restore and no more freeze-ups, even after it updated and rebooted again. BUT, don’t you just love But? I cannnot download anything, and while IE and Safari load, they will not connect to anything. (One more reason I love, love, love my Firefox. It works just fine.) I just keep getting errors. Googled, Windows-Helped, did everything I can think of. It can’t even do a diagnostic. I get an error message…”We’re sorry. Something is not working and we won’t fix it or even tell you what it is so YOU can fix it.’-” Helpful, Bill. Really helpful.

Okay, now that I’ve randomly pissed myself off again, I think I’ll go read some Torchwood fan fiction. That I CAN do.
