Turning 37

Today was my birthday, and I struggled with what to write today. I considered a lot of things:
  • Musings on turning 37
  • What I'm going to do with the remaining 90% of my time on Earth
  • The awesomeness of the the first episode of Battlestar Galactica this season
  • The sub-parness of the second episode of Battlestar Galactica this season
  • The merger announcement of Delta and Northwest
  • My prediction that we will see Continental buy Alaska (one reason I own Alaska stock)
  • And more...

In the end I got tired and discovered this quiz on Raine's blog.




Your Birthdate: April 14



You work well with others. That is, you're good at getting them to do work for you.

It's true that you get by on your charm. But so what? You make people happy!

You're dynamic, clever, and funny. And people like to have you around.

But you're so restless, they better not expect you to stay around for long.

Your strength: Your superstar charisma

Your weakness: Commitment means nothing to you

Your power color: Fuchsia

Your power symbol: Diamond

Your power month: May



Often these silly quizzes have some weird sense of accuracy. This one, I'm not so sure about.

I get by on my charm? Really? The extent of my charm is a collection of yellow stars, green clovers, blue diamonds, and purple horseshoes.

And I'm not sure they got the commitment part right either.

But if they are right, it looks like May will be an exciting month.

So what does your birthdate mean? Did the internet get it right?

Happy birthday (belated). I hope you had a great day.

No, those internet quiz things never get me right either. Sometimes there is one or two things right, but then there's always the glaring one that's oh-so-wrong you just know the whole thing is guesswork.

Hope May turns out to be a great month for you,though. Like win the lottery (and share with me, of course!)

In my case it was spot on, but it suggested that my mom is obsessed with building robots or something like that. Anyways, happy (late) birthday.

Happy birthday! I called a couple of times but only got your voicemail.

I will call today and hopefully get a real, live person.

Oh hi!! A regular visitor of your blog.
Happy birthday! As long as you are happy doesn't matter which day is it, right?

Happy Birthday! I hope you had a nice day.

I took the quiz for my birth date, and it looks about 50/50 to me. Some things seem plausible, but others, I'm not so sure.

Happy belated birthday. I took the quiz. It was totally wrong. "Your weakness: You put yourself last". I don't think so.

Happy birthday. Hope it turns out to be a great year for you. You still have plenty of charm. Your blog shows it well.

Happy Belated Birthday, you charmer, amiable, clever, funny, you.

Happy Belated B'day! The quiz was wayyy off, pegging me as a traditionalist, loyal, dedicated, etc. Ew.
