It's been a while since I've done this ...

so please bear with me.

I've been READING Stephen King's DUMA KEY
and checking out some One Single Impression poets

and now
I'm watching TENNIS!

Yup ... discovered (accidentally) when I sat down for lunch
that the Pacific Life Open begins this weekend
and runs through the week
so you know what
I'll be doing

So ... here are a selection of Blothings
for you to choose from.
This 1st one seems to describe me fairly well
but you won't catch me
chewing gum

You Are Peppermint Flavored Gum

You have a sharp mind that is always churning.

You are mentally hyper. You're always thinking of something.

And while your mind is always on, you're not the most physically active person around.

Some people make mistake you for being lazy, but the truth is: you never relax.

You tend to get so deeply into your projects that you ignore everything around you.

You are creative and cutting edge. You love telling people about your newest ideas and discoveries.

What Flavor Gum Are You?

If 'gum' doesn't capture your attention,
how about this 'quick' holiday quiz?
(You can manage just
one question)

What Your Shamrock Says About You

You are balanced, nurturing, and sympathetic. You understand people and love to help them.

At times, you get too involved with what's going on in other people's lives. It's hard to remove yourself.

You consider yourself a lucky person. Luck always seems to be on your side.

You are stylish, in a classic sort of way. You are particular about how you like things.

The Shamrock Personality Test

Since I tend to share these in 'threes'
when I indulge my 'addiction'

here's one more
for you.

Your Heart is Blue and Orange

Your heart is bright and brilliant.

You are knowledgeable, wise, and confident.

You bring dynamism and sparkle to relationships.

You know how to keep your partner hanging on your every word.

Okay ... I admit that
I'm chuckling at this one
but I love the

Do one or all ... just say 'howdy' ... (or go ahead and lurk if you must), but I hope you're having a wonderful weekend because I am ;--)

Just wanted to say Hello and let you know that you have been tagged at my place for a Make a wish meme.

Joyce said...

Hello, Friend,

I love those bloggy quizzes, too. They are fun, sort of like eating cotton candy at the county fair is fun. :)

I think I would get much the same results as you. I'll try the quizzes later on.

Have a wonderful evening. :)

Betty said...

Okay, I did the shamrock one. Here goes:

What Your Shamrock Says About You

You are charming, witty, and larger than life.

At times, you can be a bit impatient and inflexible. You don't like to be distracted.

You don't really consider yourself a lucky person. In your view, people create their own luck.

You are stylish, in a classic sort of way. You are particular about how you like things.

That was fun. Hope you have had a goodweek and that you will have an even better week.

I was bubble gum flavored gum. Come check out what that means. Interesting blogthings.

Karen said...

I'm Wintergreen flavored gum (cool, laid-back, go with the flow, never cause a fuss)--I'm not entirely certain it captures my essence. But I will say, it's how I WANT to be.

I couldn't get the shamrock one to work--I chose my shamrock, and a picture of a different appeared. I did it repeatedly, and the shamrock kept changing. Hmmm...maybe it's telling me I'm all the traits it came up with? Unselfish, intelligent, articulate, etc. Or maybe I'm just a mess?

My heart is yellow and green (caring, giving, forgiving, I bring objectivity and rationality to relationships).

Actually, I think I could get sucked into these, Storyteller. It's a good thing that I limit myself to the ones you post!

Ivanhoe – I’ve left a comment on your blog in response to your ‘tag’ and will let you know when I finish and share it.

Joyce – My blogging buddies began to think I was ‘addicted’ because I used them whenever I got busy or inspiration failed me for a post … so I’ve pulled back. That said … for all the reasons listed in this post, Sunday seemed a perfect time for sharing these. I’ll be over in a while to check on you ;--)

Betty – Thanks for sharing your results in comments. Did they seem to ‘fit’ or did they feel off?

Grandy – I’m glad you found them ‘interesting’ … and thanks for the ‘link-love’ today!!! I’m still trying to decide what ‘quote’ to choose for the ‘meme’ … and who to tag. Decisions, decisions.

Karen – I love ‘wintergreen’ much more than ‘peppermint’ as a flavor! Thanks for sharing the ‘general characteristics’ in comments. Sorry the Shamrock Quiz didn’t work for you. Must be a ‘glitch’ of some kind. The descriptors for your ‘heart’ seem accurate from my perspective. Yes … they do have appeal, don’t they? I’ve been really good lately about not using them, so it seemed like a good option when I found myself without inspiration and watching tennis yesterday.

Thanks to each of you for leaving a comment. Be sure to snag the ‘thank you’ graphic I left for each of you on my Monday Meme post.
Hugs and blessings,

I had so much fun doing the bloggy things. I too like the quizzes and will post mine next Monday. Thanks for stopping by for a visit! Happy MM!

storyteller said...

Cricket – You're welcome. Visiting your blog is always a pleasure. I’m so happy you enjoyed the quizzes, and I’ll look forward to reading your results next Monday. Have a delightful day!
Hugs and blessings,

Hi Storyteller,

We got two out of three the same - the shamrock and the heart! I differed on the gum. Although, like you, you would never see me chewing gum! So here is mine:

You Are Bubblegum Flavored Gum

You are friendly, outgoing, and energetic.
You love life, and you can always find some reason to smile.

You are a bit hyper, and you're always looking for your next challenge.
You love getting things done - and you are usually on the go.

Your confidence and positive attitude makes you a very attractive person.
You can be a little flaky at times, but people are able to overlook that - because you're so fun!

LOL That was fun!

storyteller said...

Tina – Interesting commonalities! Methinks Grandy was ‘bubblegum’ flavored gum too. I’m glad you enjoyed these Blogthings. Thanks for playing along.
Hugs and blessings,
