Found at One Gal's Musings ... and I admit I felt a bit surprised at my results until I realized that I have learned (over the years) to take better care of myself and ask for what I need more often, so perhaps this Blogthing is correct after all. How about YOU?

You're Part ...

You know that a girl's gotta work it to get her way in the world.

And while you aren't about to throw a tantrum at every turn...

You do amp up the drama when you know you need it.

You mix charm, honesty, and kindness to get ahead.
Are You a Diva?

If you decide to participate in 'Unconscious Mutterings' and/or take the 'Diva' Quiz, I hope you'll either share your results in comments and/or on your Blog and leave a link to your blog so I can read your results. As an incentive, I offer the following award to enjoy and share with others as you wish ... just because.

I liked your mutterings, too. They are a lot of fun. I'm going to keep my eye out for them so I don't miss the next set.

Mike Golch said...

Great mutterings. I'M doing this one and thanks for the award.

Monique said...

Finally a match for Prince of Darkness. =)

Have a good week.

Great post! I loved and agreed with your answers 1-3 and loved the video!
Here are my answers! I chose the 1st 3 of yours, but going to try to change it up a bit.
Zoo :: animals
Neighborhood :: noisy
Salute :: Honor
Immortality :: eternity, everlasting life
Dominion ::Control or the exercise of control; sovereignty
Rhonda :: Clark (a very nice lady I know.
Parties :: candle
Prince of Darkness :: Satan
Garbage :: Things we carry around that we should just let go.
Standard :: A means by which individuals are compared and judged

Here are my results for Blogthings:
You Aren't A Diva
You don't like to cause a fuss or draw attention to yourself.
You're easygoing, and you can even put up from diva behavior from others.
This makes you everyone's favorite trusty companion.
But watch out - it could also make you their favorite doormat.
(OMGees! That is so me!)
Have a blessed day!

Share your diva secrets! How do you "amp up the drama?"

Nope, I'm not a diva:
You don't like to cause a fuss or draw attention to yourself.
You're easygoing, and you can even put up from diva behavior from others.
This makes you everyone's favorite trusty companion.
But watch out - it could also make you their favorite doormat.
