10:17 p.m. - Three in a row
I keep thinking that if I get in the habit of writing here again, maybe I'll start to write something worth reading. I don't believe that's likely to happen tonight, but you're more likely to write something good if you write rather than not writing, right? Write. So I'm writing. As I recall, most of my first dozen or so LiveJournal entries were attempts to post quiz results, so it's not as if I have any history of being interesting all the time anyway.

Today was the third of January in the year twenty-fourteen, and I almost but not quite got eight hours of sleep last night. After waking up, I dithered around a bit, listened to a CD of Gustav Holst's The Planets, and eventually made my way outside where I tried to be useful by helping to clear off the front sidewalk. Fortunately most of the work was being done by a hardy Midwesterner who laughs at what passes for cold around here, as I quickly lost my usefulness after I lost the feeling in my fingers.

I did a little work on one of my little semi-resolutions by going out to eat at an Ethiopian restaurant, where the vegetarian lunch special proved to be marvelous comfort food. Free of animal fat though it may have been, I don't believe there was anything low-calorie about it, so it's a good thing that I managed to walk about two-and-a-half miles today. As far as I can tell, I never got frostbite, so it's all good! (If anyone's wondering: I don't plan on eating out more than once more this month, unless someone else wants to pay! Eating other people's cooking is expensive, dudes. I'll have to eat lunch quickly after my next doctor's appointment since I'll be ravenous by then, but I do need to save money for the heating oil... bleh.)

Also did a load of laundry, which isn't exciting at all. And then I re-watched The Adjustment Bureau, about which my one complaint is that the film credits should not say that it was based on a story by Philip K. Dick. Loosely inspired by "The Adjustment Team" perhaps, but certainly not based upon it. It's a good comfort-food movie for me, anyway, since I've got a weakness for stories of somebody fighting against their fate, particularly when they get to meet the agents of that fate and get into arguments with them.

Right then. It's about time to post some quiz results.




You Are Alice



You are curious, brave, and inquisitive. You can't help but be interested in the world around you.

You are a bit of a loner and a total daydreamer. Your inner world is very colorful and vivid.



At times, your real life seems dull and completely unbearable. You wish you could escape to a whole other world.

While you have a wild spirit, you are quite gentle and polite. You tend to observe more than act - and you tread lightly.









Opal Says You Are Dreamy



You have an innocent heart, and you truly believe in good in this world. You are an optimist.

You are a big daydreamer, and you think optimistically. There's no reason your dreams can't come true.



Opals are thought to bring friendship and genuineness. You are a friend to many, and you get along well with others.

There isn't a mean bone in your body, and people are attracted to the true you. You have a lot to give.



You go best with another opal. Surprised? You're so unique and multifaceted that only someone of your type will truly get you.

You clash with sapphire. While sapphires may impress you from afar, you find hanging out with them to be too constricting.






"You're so unique and multifaceted that only someone of your type will truly get you"--oh please. What on Earth makes them think I want anyone to get me anyway?? Silly quiz writer.




You Are the 70s



You are both carefree and questioning. You don't buy into the system, and you're determined to change things.

You are drawn to alternative ways of thinking and maybe even some alternative life choices. You don't fall in line or do what you're told.



You are more idealistic than most people. If you notice an injustice in the world, you won't just let it go.

You take social issues seriously, but you don't think it's enough to voice your complaints. You live according to your values.






I can't say I live according to my values because that would require more energy than I've got. More money would be helpful, too. But now that I think about it, I don't think I'd want to be the '80s or the '90s either.




You Are a Leopard



You are at times a bit irresponsible. You prefer living in the moment to worrying about tomorrow.

You are very open to the world. You try to say yes to as many opportunities as possible.



Your charms have been known to get you in trouble. You're a little too alluring for your own good.

People often think that you may have nine lives. You always seem to escape from trouble unharmed.






Alluring? Living in the moment? You know what? I think it's time for me to quit taking quizzes, because I am obviously picking all the wrong answers.

Current Mood: cold

Agreed. Though it's probably just as well that I didn't listen to Tomita's version of the Planets today, since the regular symphonic arrangement is mind-altering enough.

Us snow-experienced people sure are useful sometimes! Today I was patting myself on the back for growing up shovel-savvy in New Hampshire, while sweating buckets because I overdressed. Unfortunately, no one else was there to appreciate me. Rick was there. But he only felt bad that he had a cold and was too slow to shovel as much as me. That's not quite the same as being appreciated.

So I will appreciate myself.
