Your result for The Animal Archetype Test...

The Cat

Domestic, Solitary, Serious, Intelectual: you are the Cat!

Cat represents a balance of strength in both physical and spiritual, psychic and sensual powers, merging these two worlds into one. Curious, intelligent, and physically adept, cat people tend to live in a world all their own.

This test categorized you based on four different axes of personality, which were then associated with a different animal. The four axes, as well as all possible results are explained below.

Wild/Domestic: This first axis categorizes you based on how much you are drawn to the outdoors, versus how much you are drawn to civilized situations. Domesticity has many shapes and forms, and varies from the joy of dolphins leaping next to a ship to the steadfast loyalty of a family dog.

Gregarious/Solitary: This axis measures how solitary you are. If you scored high, it means that you enjoy the company of other people, while a low score indicates that you prefer a more solitary lifestyle.

Trickster/Serious: This axis measures how well you line up with conventional trickster archetypes. People who fall into this archetype have a sense of humor and an excitable, highly chaotic streak. Scoring low doesn't mean that you don't have a sense of humor; it just means that you probably don't think dynamite is very funny.

Intellectual/Emotional: This last axis determines whether you are more emotional -- acting based on feelings and instinct, or rational and intelectual -- acting more on thought than on your gut feelings.

The not drinking is going well, remarkably easy really, much to many peoples evident surprise. Sorry peeps I'm not actually an alcoholic, I can take it or leave it. Rock and roll;)

Artwork is progressing as of last night rar!

Acquiring new creative skills that don't involve computers, which was all part of this years plan so that's good! I say yay to anything that's creative and doesn't involve computers, and results in real physical objects, you know something with weight and texture.

Still as fragile as brittle glass but hey getting better...

Yay Hawkwind! Jun. 14th, 2008 @ 12:06 am
Oh dear I feel the need to go to a Hawkwind gig again! (blame fade_2_black she sent me the link)

Wednesday 10 December 2008 | Wulfrun Hall

'The great granddaddies of psych-rock travelling through time and space to bring their classic sound to a new generation.
Seeing the band is probably best described as "mind expanding". Proponents of psychedelic music, or acid rock, since their formative days, Hawkwind believe in matching images to the music they make. This takes the form of a light show, back projected images, dancers, fire-eaters, performers, smoke, strobes... you name it. The intention appears to be to create an immersive experience for the audience, to drag them into the things happening on stage. Usually, the audience knows what to expect and happily meets the band more than half way; newcomers to the live band can expect to see, hear and feel the performance in a way that will leave them either disoriented and slightly lost or begging for more.'

So who else wants to go?

1 I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

2 To smoke, and have coffee - and if you do it together, it's fantastic.

3 I'll admit I may have seen better days, but I'm still not to be had for the price of a cocktail, like a salted peanut.

4 Chocolate sandwich! Chocolate sandwich! Chocolate sandwich! Chocolate sandwich!

5 I want that fudge packer eliminated!

fade_2_black A Matter of Life and Death

7 ASSUMED? Brother, I've seen all kinds of dishonesty in my day, but this little display takes the cake. Y'all come in here with your hearts bleedin' all over the floor about slum kids and injustice; you listen to some fairy tales; suddenly you start gettin' through to some of these old ladies... well, you're not getting through to me, I've had enough! WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU GUYS? You all know he's guilty. He's got to burn! You're letting him slip through our fingers.

8 Heads

9 We were talking with the Master regarding the nature of conceptual reality. Psychologically speaking, the human mind, or brain or whatever, is almost incapable of distinguishing between the real and the vividly imagined experience. Sound and film and music and radio. Even these manipulative experiences are received more or less directly and uninterpretive by the mind. They are cataloged and recorded and either acted upon directly, or stored in the memory, or both. Now this process, unless we pay it tremendous attention, begins to separate us from the reality of the now. Am I being clear? For we must allow the reality of the now to just happen, as it happens. Observe and act with clarity. For where there is clarity, there is no choice. And were there is choice, there is misery. But then, why should I speak, since I know nothing?

10 It happens sometimes. People just explode. Natural causes.

11 Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?

12 I'm impatient with stupidity. My people have learned to live without it.

13 Well, I'd certainly say she had marvelous judgment, Albert, if not particularly good taste.

14 I'm the high-voltage Messiah, the electric Christ, the AC/DC god

15 You know, when we were on that plane, I was fascinated by the way the shadow followed us. That silly shadow! Racing along over mountains and valleys, covering ten times the distance of the plane, and yet always there to greet us... with outstretched arms when we landed. And I've been thinking that, somehow, you're that plane, and I'm that silly shadow. That all my life I've been rushing up and down hills, leaping rivers, crashing over obstacles, never dreaming that one day that beautiful thing in flight would land on this earth and into my arms.

If you could do one thing for the person who has most hurt you in the world, what would it be?
» Its that day...
Well it's my least favourite day of the whole year, even less favoured than Christmas, and my birthday, and that's saying quite a lot given that I have very good reasons not to like the other two. Still, in a vainglorious attempt (isn't it always vainglorious?) to move away from my usual cynicism, I choose instead to simply post one of my favourite poems.

She Walks in Beauty

SHE walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that 's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impair'd the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

George Gordon Byron, Lord Byron. 1788–1824

» but, but, thats not spam?
heres one I hope will amuse d_floorlandmine since he writes enough posts that amuse me...

checking through my emails to purge the 90% that are the spam I find an email sent from "bi for everyone", obviously spam ... actually no, from some dodgy mailing list I've signed up to... no.
Check the subject... ah now it makes more sense, although I have to say that being from "bi for everyone" I didn't actually think "Business Intelligence" as my first thought.
Yep another case of "Not thinking it through TM".
