Well, let's see if this works -- it has been a LONG time since I've tried to post the results of a meme/quiz thing. This one is courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] vamysteryfan.

Your result for The Attachment Style Test...

The Cuddleslut

32% Anxiety Over Abandonment and 17% Avoidance Of Intimacy

You're mostly secure, but sometimes you need a little extra reassurance to make it through the tough times. You are usually affectionate and sweet, and you find it easy to fall in love. An encouraging word from a crush or a loved one can motivate you for weeks.


Fictional character with whom you might identify: Kaylee (Firefly/Serenity), Hiro Nakamura (Heroes)

Oooooh, a shiny new meme, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ma_aaaa! It feels like forever since I've done one.

I knew I'd get Sarah Jane. I love her, but then, I love so many of the Companions: Leela, Romana, etc. etc. And K-9! (I'm still only just finishing the Fourth Doctor, so haven't seen nearly all of the Companions yet... patience, patience.)

Sarah Jane Smith

Take Which Doctor Who companion are you? (girls) today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Personality Test Generator.
You're Sarah Jane Smith!

The intrepid girl reporter, you invented spunky. You never rest in your relentless pursuit of what The People (and you) Want to Know, and have a profound sense of justice. You are cheerfully incapable of following orders, and have a very individualistic sense of style--much like the Doctor himself. It's no wonder you two get on so well, even if his absentmindedness makes him a bit of a handful sometimes.

I snagged this from [livejournal.com profile] arnie1967 and [livejournal.com profile] fluterbev. I haven't done a meme in a long time! Well, okay, I haven't posted anything but birthday wishes in a long time, either. But birthday wishes are good! They're happy and whatnot. *g*

A little bit about meme behind the cutcut... )

I would have passed on this, since a meme spam was *not* my intended First Post of the New Year, but I couldn't resist some of these. Gacked from many on teh flist:

In 2009, shiredancer resolves to...
Give up alternative lifestyles.
Go to people every Sunday.
Admit my true feelings to magician113.
Take evening classes in chocolate.
Cut down to ten indiana jones a day.
Volunteer to spend time with pubs.

Get your own New Year's Resolutions:

One of the things I'm looking for in the new year is more people contact, less hiding away -- so what could be better than an evening class on chocolate, or volunteering to spend time in pubs? *Snerk*

Your result for The 'How Army Literate Are You?' Test...

The Army Brat / Veteran

You scored 95 % Knowledge out of 120! Very Good!

You were nearly there. You got most of the answers correct, there were only a few you didn't know. This makes me think you either grew up around the army (and followed your family from one duty station to another) or that you used to be in the military and you're just a little out of touch with the newer military vocabulary. You've proved that you're very familiar with most of the army lingo though. Well done.

Thanks for taking my test :)

True! Although actually I'm a Navy brat; my dad was a career chief petty officer and medic. We bounced from coast to coast until he retired when I was eight. Most of my knowledge for purposes of the quiz, though, came from reading Sentinel stories -- or just common knowledge. Now, if they'd slanted it toward Navy slang like "hit the deck", "all ashore who's going ashore", and so forth, I'd have really shone. Still can't tell time by the bells, though. But my heart thunders mightily whenever I hear Anchors Aweigh or Bell-Bottom Trousers... Or even I Threw a Kiss in the Ocean or Three Little Sisters. My mom's favorites when my dad was away at sea.

However... this is not what I want to be posting about! Where is my little bit of a writing mojo, the one that permits small posts of moderate interest and at least lets me record my own thoughts and memories? Has menopause really wiped it all out?? *Heavy sigh*
shiredancer: (Cezanne Still Life)
Okayyyyyy, here's that art quiz thing that's been making the rounds of my flist.

It's the light... )

I'm the first (on my flist, anyway) to get this one -- everybody else seems to have the Japanese one. Heh. Maverick!

Gacked from [livejournal.com profile] bodhifox :

1. Comment on this post.
2. I will give you a letter.
3. Think of 5 fictional characters and post their names and your comments on these characters in your LJ

[livejournal.com profile] bodhifox gave me a B, so here we go:

Bilbo Baggins - bonus points for double-letter score!  First of the hobbits; the first line of his story drew me in forever.  "In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit."  Dear Bilbo.

Betsy - heroine of "Understood Betsy", one of my favorite childhood books.  I learned right along with Betsy all about resourcefulness, strength, independence, and friendship.  There was another Betsy who came along much later, when Kidlet and I read the Betsy-Tacy books together *fond cuddlesome memories*.

Billina the Chicken - Dorothy's companion in "Ozma of Oz", possibly my very favorite of all the Oz books.  Billina was laying an egg beneath the throne of the Gnome King and overheard the secret that saved everyone.

Benedict - one of the Nine Princes in Amber, Roger Zelazny's opus.  I liked him, though he was quite mysterious.  And that arm!

Buttercup - the Princess Bride, of course; Most Beautiful of all women ever, perfected by sorrow.  I still have my original paperback edition, from long before the movie.

Anybody want to play?

Gacked from several people. I am apparently not Athena, or Demeter, or Hera, or any of those other popular goddesses. No, I get someone I've never heard of:

Which Goddess lurks in your soul?


A child of the darkness you are! Nyx is the Greek Goddess of the Night and inhabits those souls who desire darkness. Not necessarily an evil or good person, you simply desire to surround yourself in all things mystical that inhabit the night time landscape. A fascination with the stars and celestial bodies also tends to accompany those whom Nyx has taken up residence in. Embrace the darkness baby because it’s already embraced you!

Leastways it's interesting and the picture is pretty! I tend to be mostly sunshine and light, myself, but I do like the stars. Hmmmm. Child of darkness and night? Could explain the icon...

Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] vamysteryfan. Huh, as a perennial English major I thought I'd do better (never studied literary theory! And now it comes back to haunt me!! And, ummm, I'm not sure I ever learned what a gerund is...):

Your result for The Are You Truly Erudite? Test...

True English Nerd

You scored 76 erudition!

Not only do you know your subjects from your objects and your definite from your indefinite articles, but you've got quite a handle on the literature and the history of the language as well. Huzzah, and well done! The English snobs of Boston salute you.

Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You?

My spamming work is done. **YAWN** Nighty-night, all!

Swiped from [livejournal.com profile] gillyp:

* Post 3 things you've done in your lifetime that you don't think anybody on your friends list has done.
* See if anybody else responds with "I've done that."
* Have your friends cut & paste this onto their page to see what unique things they've done in their life.

So, three possibly-unique things here... )
shiredancer: (Default)
Whew. Took me about seven tries, but I finally got the result I wanted. What, isn't that the point? *g*

Yeah, it's that fashion thing. Am I a sucker for these quizzes or what? No, that's rhetorical... don't bother to answer. )
shiredancer: (Jim WTF)
Hee! What a funny meme. I don't think I would do well as *anybody's* standard image of a wife, or a husband, in any era. Maverick!

I fail as a 1930s wife... )

But I do okay as a husband! Who knew??? )

(I'll be really interested to see if this comes out right, because in my copying and pasting I managed to shift the original HTML around...)

ETA: Hey, I totally rock at patching up HTML! *buffs nails* Take that, you 1930s wives!

Gacked from [livejournal.com profile] nonniemous this time.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next four few sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest. (Since I am at work, I could have turned to the right to the bookcase there -- hmmm, all catalogs and computer manuals, except for some religious tomes on top -- this *is* a department of religious studies, after all -- that are inaccessible due to the clutter of unwashed tea mugs in front of them. So turning to the left, there's my personal bookcase and tea caddy -- grabbed the first book there. Oops, page 123 is a blank section divider -- hope nobody minds that I skipped to page 125!)

"I was perturbed. I had never expected that an untouchable family with an introduction from no less a man than Thakkar Bapa would so soon be seeking admission to the Ashram. I shared the letter with my companions. They welcomed it."
The Gandhi Reader: A Source Book of His Life and Writings, edited by Homer A. Jack. I grabbed this from the piles of old give-away books after a clean-out of the department library last summer; have never read it. I'll have to give it a try -- it seems very readable. And Gandhi! *hero worship*

See how much good a simple meme can do in the world??

Aaaaaand, just because everybody else is doing it, here is my color-meme thingy:

you are lavender

Your dominant hue is blue, making you a good friend who people love and trust. You're good in social situations and want to fit in. Just be careful not to compromise who you are to make them happy.

Your saturation level is very low - you have better things to do than jump headfirst into every little project. You make sure your actions are going to really accomplish something before you start because you hate wasting energy making everyone else think you're working.

Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.

A fun meme, gacked from my snowy friend [livejournal.com profile] aerianya and hidden behind the cut. )

I love the way this meme turned out! Very fitting for both my real self and my online presence, methinks. I like that sass is in the mix for one, and understanding for the other.

Gacked from [livejournal.com profile] aerianya -- this is that meme that starts with Elaborate on your default icon... )
