Freak Out (Thursday Thirteen #22)

Ok, you all know Shelly at This Eclectic Life, right? If you don’t, you should head right on over there (after you read mine :) and check out her blog, because it rocks! I know it rocks because I am THE Rock Chick, after all.

Shelly and I have never actually met, but I have every reason to believe we are two peas in a pod. Either that or she is one heck of a computer hacker. I'll let you know when I figure it out for sure :)

I can’t tell you how many posts I have had in the works only to go over to Shelly’s blog and discover that she has written something similar at the same time. One was about CB radios, for goodness sake! Who even thinks about those anymore?

Imagine my surprise when I went to her blog tonight after painstakingly working on my Thursday Thirteen only to discover that we had the exact same idea! Talk about a freak out!

In the past, I’ve refrained from writing any posts similar to Shelly’s because well...she is THE ultimate storyteller. This time, though, I’m going to take my chances and that's only because I can’t think of anything else this week :)

Today is Thursday Thirteen...and here’s mine....


Thirteen INDICATIONS THAT I SOMETIMES HAVE TOO MUCH TIME ON MY HANDS


1. Which Desperate Housewife would I be? The test says Bree. I think it's wrong, I definitely am more like Susan than any of them.

2. My Rock Chick Twin? Avril Lavigne. I'm not sure about this. She's kind of angry, no? I was thinking more along the lines of Madonna, but I guess Avril's better than my Pop Star twin, which was Ashlee Simpson.

3. In case you were wondering what color my heart is...it's.....

Your Heart Is Pink

In relationships, you like to play innocent - even though you aren't.
Each time you fall in love, it's like falling for the first time.

Your flirting style: Coy

Your lucky first date: Picnic in the park

Your dream lover: Is both caring and dominant

What you bring to relationships: Romance


4. And so far...the most correct of them is this Jelly Bean one...

You Are a Root Beer Jelly Bean

You are truly All American and down to earth. You don't have fancy tastes, and you don't apologize for who you are. You enjoy tradition and proven quality.


5. In regard to the Muppet Personality Test, I was really hoping for Miss Piggy. Didn't get her...I got...

You Are Kermit

Hi, ho! Lovable and friendly, you get along well with everyone you know.
You're a big thinker, and sometimes you over think life's problems.
Don't worry - everyone know's it's not easy being green.
Just remember, time's fun when you're having flies!


6. Here's one close to my heart..err...diamonds, I guess! If I were a playing card, I would be...

You Are the Ace of Diamonds

You are a lucky person, and you always seem to find yourself surrounds by pretty, shiny things.
You have a knack for success and money - though your skills can't really be learned or taught.

You shine in a room, and you a have a truly sparkling personality.
A true extrovert, you always are able to share a witty joke or the latest scandalous gossip.

While you do have an eye for bling, you are also quite generous.
A lot of wealth and luck comes your way. And you're not afraid to pass it on.

A gamble you should take: Sports betting

Your friends would describe you as: Captivating

Your enemies would describe you as: Greedy

If you lived in Vegas, you would be: A trophy wife or husband


7. This one was a relief! I try very hard to be a good friend and was relieved to see the answer agreed!

You Are A Good Friend

You're always willing to listen
Or lend a shoulder to cry on
You're there through thick and thin
Many people consider you their "best friend"!


8. I didn't even have to take a quiz to know this answer. Macs rule!

You Are a Mac

You are creative, stylish, and super trendy.
You demand the best - even if it costs an arm and a leg.


9. OK, I know you're all dying to know who my celebrity boob twin is...Kate Hudson. Apparently, Kate is chestically challenged, as well. I hadn't really noticed this before.

10. I never would have guessed this, but despite the ET incident at the Bon Jovi concert, I really AM smokin' hot!

You Are Smokin' Hot

You're a terrible flirt, a sharp dresser, and a party animal.
Of course, you're totally sizzling too. And for you, being hot just comes naturally.


11. Since I am very loyal and not at all a fan of the floozy, hoochie-mama type, you will be relieved to know that I am not a tease. Not at all, it says.

12. I am also Raspberry Flavored Lip Gloss. I thought for sure I'd be watermelon, but whatever, that's ok, too.

13. And finally, if you were looking for an explanation for all of my odd posts, here it is...

You Are 86% Tortured Genius

You totally fit the profile of a tortured genius. You're uniquely brilliant - and completely misunderstood.
Not like you really want anyone to understand you anyway. You're pretty happy being an island.


Hey, can't argue with the facts!

Donuts over at Shelly's, and now here I'm the Swedish Chef. I'm all about food today, apparently.

Great list. Happy TT.

MommyBa said...

LOL! This was a great post!!! I should do this sometime soon :D

Happy Thursday!

ExPat Mom said...

Hey! Speaking of peas in a pod, I just did a post like this one on MY blog! Not a TT, but still a quiz post. Gotta love these things. You didn´t mention if you were abnormal or not. :D

Healthy Diva said...

Very interesting TT, I have to admit.

:D

This Eclectic Life said...

I thought you were kidding! This is totally eerie...like we are on the same wavelength or something! For the record: I am a Root Beer flavored Jelly Bean as well, I am also the Ace of Diamonds! However I am 92% Tortured Genius ("You totally fit the profile of a tortured genius. You're uniquely brilliant - and completely misunderstood.
Not like you really want anyone to understand you anyway. You're pretty happy being an island.")

NOW it's a total freak out!!

Eric said...

I was going to do the same TT! I got to about the 7th quiz and then lost the post. So I gave up.

You have much more endurance than me!

Good TT.

JAM said...

This is a cool list. I wonder who writes the questions/answers, and how they're interpreted on these things.

I haven't done any of these, but I did let one create a cyborg name for me and it came up with:
John - Juggernaut Optimized for Hazardous Nullification, which I thought was pretty cool.

I'll have to do this one day, but for now, I'm still in the midst of my nefarious plan to scour the internet (blogs) and steal questions from other people's blogs and answer them myself. I had totally run out of ideas.

Which is the perfect lead in to tell you that my latest 13 Stupid Questions and Answers About Me is up.

Steven said...

Drat! Now I'm going to have to go take all of these tests! I just can't resist. Fun TT!

I have an orange heart
