You Are 49% Likely to Survive Another Great Depression

Okay, my next resolution is to think up more interesting first lines at the beginning of each month this year. *yawn*

Today is my short day (8-2) and the books looked pretty dead, so I called in sick. Think I can accomplish more by cleaning the apt and doing laundry than sitting around the spa.

And now, a meme!

questions from heathergalaxy )

And now another one yanked from [ profile] helloflamingo

flickr meme )

Shawn had to go to jury duty selection (we're hoping his crazy looking steampunk beard keeps him from getting picked) and texted me about Blago. He says its an interesting day to be in a courtroom. Don't think anyone is going to be sad to see the man go.

In 2008, antiquehighheel resolves to...
Find a better morrissey.
Stop dancing with ziola.
Drink four glasses of skincare every day.
Tell my family about peter hedges.
Go to rasputina every Sunday.
Backup my bjork regularly.

Get your own New Year's Resolutions:

The four glasses of skincare a day made me laugh out loud.

oh noes!

You Are 49% Likely to Survive Another Great Depression

Your habits are pretty on par with the average person.

Unfortunately, this means your chances aren't good in another Great Depression.

Start saving your money now. Living in debt isn't doing you any favors.

Also figure out how to live a little more cheaply. Every little bit you can trim will help.

Oh come on. Just cuz I don't garden and don't own a gun? Though I should probably stock up on the canned goods...

Other than that, I had a lovely Thanksgiving vacation. Will post more about it tomorrow. Right now my brain is soggy from working a long day.

I was the fabulous Ms. [ profile] pollyhyper. Actually, she tagged both of my journals, so I'll be reposting this in [ profile] jescatling as well. Unless I decide to make that all specifically craft-related, but that might take too much effort.

The rules: Each person tagged gives 7 random facts about themselves. Those tagged need to write in their blogs the 7 facts, as well as the rules of the game. You need to tag 7 others and list their names on your blog. You have to leave those you plan on tagging a note in their comments so they know that they have been tagged and to read your blog.

1. I just got my lower legs lasered. It was my first treatment and it hurthurthurt! Laser is usually described as a rubber band snap, to which I reply that it's more like a rubber band snap ON FIRE! But it's pain that doesn't linger and my legs actually feel fine now. The person working on me told me that it only hurts like that the first couple times, then it gets better. Looking forward to that.

2. I was born in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. We moved to Chicago when I was four. I used to spend my early days in my grandmothers Italian bakery, eating all the cookies and cannolis that I wanted. Cannolis still don't taste the same out here.

3. I think that animals are cuter than babies.

4. I'm terrible at cleaning. I clean a lot at my job, but my house is usually a cluttered wreck because I'd rather read a book or knit or nap with my cats.

5. Shawn actually broke me up with the guy I was dating before him. I had been dating this guy, J., who I brought to one of Amy's parties. Shawn and I had met a couple times before this, and emailed each other a lot, so of course we started babbling like crazy. After that party, J. started acting very weird and stand offish, and I could tell he wasn't into me anymore, but he wouldn't say why, he just called me less. I finally asked him what was up, and he told me that at the party he saw the way I talked with Shawn and realized I never talked to him the same way. Not in a flirty way, just in the way that we're both so freakishly alike. Shawn and I started dating a couple months later.

4. One of the best parts of my job are the facial extractions. Ew! But strangely satisfying...

5. Part of the reason I finally stopped eating meat is because my grandmother had colon cancer and it was horrible. If I end up with some kind of cancer, I just don't want to have that kind.

6. But I haven't stopped eating all meat. I still eat fish, so I'm more of a flexitarian or pescatarian or whatever. I can't help is so good! If sushi is wrong (and it probably is) then I don't want to be right!

7. At work today they gave us a "Skin Saver" drink that was from a skincare book. It was delicious, made with green tea, berries and club soda for fizziness. Extremely good for you. Yet I couldn't help wondering how well it would mix with vodka.

I'm going to be a rebel and not tag anyone. But steal away!

Housekeeping A to Z

aprons - y/n?
Nope. My grandmother always forced me (and sometimes my friends!) to wear old fashioned floral aprons from 1943 while eating so we wouldn't get messy. Terribly scarring. No aprons for me.

baking - y/n?
nope. I like cooking better, but that might be because I don't have too much of a sweet tooth anymore. [ profile] hologram_golem is actually pretty good at baking, and then I feel bad because I can't eat more than a sliver of his pecan pies.

clothesline - y/n?
No. I wouldn't mind one. I like the idea of conserving energy and using the sun to dry clothes. But would I actually take the time to hang wet clothes and then take them down? Uh uh.

donuts - ever made them?
no. Maybe I should encourage [ profile] hologram_golem to learn.

everyday - one homemaking thing you do everyday?

freezer - do you have a separate deep freezer?
no, but that would be pretty cool.

garbage disposal - y/n
no...Chicago apts don't have garbage disposals, which is why our alleys are full of rats.

handbook - y/n?
Huh? There's a handbook? Why didn't I ever get one?

ironing - love it or hate it?
Don't mind it, but I never really bother with it. A quick spin in the dryer will take out any wrinkles.

junk drawer - where is it?
In the kitchen.

kitchen - design and decorating?
It's pretty all over the place. There are bizarre masks hanging on the walls, kitschy calenders, homemade magnets, etc. When we own a place, maybe I'll try going for a vintagey kitchen theme.

love - what is your favorite part of homemaking?
If you can't tell already, it's cooking. Love to cook, hate to clean.

mop - y/n?
I do more mopping now that I have my sexy omop.

nylons - wash them by hand or in the washer?
I won't wear anything that can't go in the washer.

oven - do you use the window or open it to check?
Open it.

pizza - what do you put on yours?
all sorts of veggies and then load it with shredded cheese.

quiet - what do you do during the day when you get a quiet moment?
read or knit

recipe card box?
nope...cookbooks and a folder full of printed out recipes from the net.

style of house?
2 bedroom flat with crazy painted walls, a suit of armor and a Nefertiti sarcophagus.

tablecloths and napkins - y/n?
What, paper towels aren't good enough?

under the kitchen sink
Cleaning supplies.

vacuum - how many times a week?
a few times a week for our hardwood floors. We have a couple rugs that I'm considering ditching because we just don't have a strong enough vacuum for them.

wash - how many loads do you do a week?
Lights, darks and reds. I don't wear much color besides red.

x’es - do you keep a list of things to do and cross them off?
Oh please. If I sat down to write a list, I would lose all motivation to do anything.

yard - who does what?
We rent. Someone else does the yard. We've tried gardening before, but we have the brownest of thumbs.

zzz’s - what is your last homemaking task for the day?
If anything, it will be filling up the dishwasher. I love my dishwasher.
redxdollxshoes: (Default)
...even though I mostly chose the pattern because it was red.

Your Brain's Pattern

You have a dreamy mind, full of fancy and fantasy.
You have the ability to stay forever entertained with your thoughts.
People may say you're hard to read, but that's because you're so internally focused.
But when you do share what you're thinking, people are impressed with your imagination.

...a self-absorbed, dependent, extroverted leader. Uh huh. And I'm 100% adventurious!

The Everything Test

There are many different types of tests on the internet today. Personality tests, purity tests, stereotype tests, political tests. But now, there is one test to rule them all.

Traditionally, online tests would ask certain questions about your musical tastes or clothing for a stereotype, your experiences for a purity test, or deep questions for a personality test.We're turning that upside down - all the questions affect all the results, and we've got some innovative results too! Enjoy :-)

You are more logical than emotional, more concerned about self than concerned about others, more atheist than religious, more dependent than loner, more lazy than workaholic, more traditional than rebel, more artistic mind than engineering mind, more idealist than cynical, more leader than follower, and more extroverted than introverted.

As for specific personality traits, you are adventurious (100%), adventurous (90%), romantic (71%), intellectual (67%).

Emo Kid78%
Young Professional76%
Punk Rock73%
Life Experience

Your political views would best be described as Socialist, whom you agree with around 100% of the time.
Your attitude toward life best associates you with Upper Middle Class. You make more than 0% of those who have taken this test, and 31% less than the U.S. average.

If your life was a movie, it would be rated PG-13.
By the way, your hottness rank is 71%, hotter than 96% of other test takers.
