what i am

I am green-eyed, English-Danish-Irish-Scottish.

I am loyal. If  I like you, I  have your back.

I am not narrow-minded. Which would seem to imply that I am accepting of other people. This is true, unless you think Michele Bachmann is a viable candidate for President or you are going to the prayer event Rick Perry is hosting in Texas in a couple of weeks.

I am creative. I like to make things – things you can wear, hang, or eat.

I am not musical. At all. It makes me sad.  I do have an ear for languages. I once thought of being a U.N. interpreter. That was a long time ago.

I am catty. Sometimes.  It is a flaw.  But I’ve found most people are and if they say they aren’t, they are lying.

I am a good speller. It drives me nuts when other people are not.  Also, probably a flaw, and narrow-minded.

I am not ambitious.  I am motivated in certain areas, but that is not the same. If I were ambitious, I would apply myself and get a fancy job making beaucoup bucks.  I am too lazy.  Also cannot think of  a job I’d like that pays beaucoup bucks.

I am funny.  At least, I slay myself sometimes.  Which is handy, because sometimes it’s all I’ve got.

I am not precise, but I am detail-oriented. See:  spelling.  I never follow a recipe or pattern as it is written, but I can tell if something should hang in a certain place or make a schedule or pack a car.

I am honest.  To a fault.  Also, not diplomatic, though I can spin things like nobody’s business.  This is a problem with people I like, and where the loyalty kicks in.

I am not patient.  I want things done and done now.  I want you to see what I see.  Another flaw, I realize.  Also, see narrow-minded/ stupid people.

I am a worrier. Constantly. About things that haven’t happened and may never happen.  It is a time suck.  Oddly, I am not a pessimist.  I usually think good things will happen.

I am unforgiving. I am loyal til you fuck it up and then that’s it – game over.   Sometimes, we can move on and it becomes something new, but there is no going back.

I am an intro/extrovert.  I enjoy meeting new people, but it is work.  I will probably have a headache when it is over. My favorite people to be with are my family and closest friends, and sometimes even that is work.

I am protected.  It may not seem like I like you at first. It takes a while to get through, but once you do, you’re in. I will be honest but try to spare your feelings, I will help you when you need it, I will sometimes make you laugh, I will feed you and organize you.

I am complicated.
