Horoscope Meme - All About Me

Silken tagged me to do this horoscope blog and, as it looked like fun and I was tempted to try it out when I saw it at Mrs. Parker’s Blog a few days ago, I thought I’d give it a whirl.

The rules are simple. Below is a list of each of the twelve months. Copy paste your birth month into the beginning of the entry and then tell your readers which of the descriptions are accurate – the blogger can simply highlight the affirmative or give an overall explanation... as those of you who read me know that I’m long winded, you can guess which you’re in for here.

All About Me:


Attractive personality. – I hope so... I like it, but then I don’t often have many conflicts with myself... then again, if a friend described me as having an ‘attractive personality’ I would likely assume they were calling me ugly, so maybe I should say no to this one....

Sexy. – It depends on who you ask. Was I sexy after ten hours of labor? Was I sexy at three in the morning smelling of infant spit up? Was I sexy wearing very icky nursing pads? I think you’d have to have some weird fetish to answer yes to any of those... but there is probably someone out there with a weird fetish, so... I think everyone feels sexy at some time, but that’s a blanket kind of sidestepping answer... I would give a yes, but, hey, wouldn’t we all?

Affectionate. – Again, depends on who you ask... if you’re annoying me, not so much. With my kids, all the time. With my dog – she’s 70 pounds and thinks she’s a lap dog, so what does that tell ya? With my husband – see the annoying line.

Shy and reserved. – Yes and no.... ha, aren’t I an enigma? I hate public speaking, it’s on my list of things that I have to master when I’ve actually got a publishing deal – because I know I’ll need it but right now the writing’s far more pressing... I was painfully shy as a kid, somewhat outgrew it in teen years, and most people that know me would never guess shy... but I still clam up and get self conscious around large groups... even smaller groups if I don’t know everyone.

Secretive. – I can’t tell you.

Naturally honest, generous and sympathetic -Yes, yes, and yes. I don’t like being lied to and I have a problem lying... this is not some great moral attribute on my part, my mouth simply works faster than my brain. Seriously, I will say things that most normal people would keep to themselves, it just pops out of my mouth. I attribute this to a sieve problem... most people have a filter between their brain and their mouth, I have a sieve... usually I can keep the things that are going to be hurtful from getting past my teeth, but whatever I’m thinking is flashing across my face anyway. Generous, overly... I will hurt myself financially to help a friend or family member out and have, for most of my life. Sympathetic, see generous, what do you think?

Loves peace and serenity. – I do actually, and I cannot stand drama, but I tend to get more of that than peace and serenity.. I’ve wondered, too, what I’m doing to attract that, because I’d like to stop.

Sensitive to others. – Yes

Loves to serve others. – Yes, but this is kind of a self serving thing, too. I love to cook, more because I like to see people enjoying what I’ve made them than because I actually love the cooking process...

Easily angered. – Would you be surprised if I said Yes – Definitely Yes, I have a hot temper, but I’ve learned to control it a great deal with age... for instance, I haven’t winged a plate at anyone since I was a teenager.. I’m so not looking forward to my kids hitting their teens.

Trustworthy. – Yes

Appreciative and returns kindness. – I try to be but sometimes I’m not as good at sending out thank you’s and such as I should be... I do try to return kindnesses when I can, though.

Observant and assesses others. – Overly, I tend to get a snap impression of people I meet fairly quickly and I’m usually pretty accurate.

Revengeful. – YES – shocked, are you? I am actually, enough so that I’m glad I have too much of a faith in Karmic justice to actually act out on anyone... It takes me a great deal of time to get over slights and backstabbing and when I do forgive it’s more a case of letting it go for my own well being than it is a means to fix the relationship. I should probably add a disclaimer here: not the kind of revengeful that would hurt someone physically... for instance, when someone’s really done something rotten to me in life, if I were to write a character of them, the character wouldn’t get killed or anything, they’d just be overly jerky and might get an std or something.

Loves to dream and fantasize. – Yes – I call this living in my own head and when I turn it to creative pursuits it’s a great plus, but I have to be very conscious of this daydreamer aspect, because it can lead me to feel like I’m accomplishing something when I’m really just being lazy.

Loves traveling. – Nope. There are places I’d like to see, but overall I don’t like to travel

Loves attention. – Okay, is there someone who doesn’t like positive attention? Seriously

Hasty decisions in choosing partners. – Yes, but hasty isn’t always wrong, either.

Loves home decors. - Not so much... There are quirky things I like in my own house, but I’m not one of those people who reads home decorating magazines or anything.

Musically talented. – Not even a little bit!!! I love music, listen to it all the time, but I can’t play or sing a damn thing without causing myself and others great pain.

Loves special things. – No, I hate special things with a passion... what gives them a right to be so, so, special.... Seriously, what does this even mean? (Side note, they left ‘sarcastic’ off this list, but obviously the answer there would be ‘yes’)

Moody. – Yes.... I can be.

Ello said...

I'm April and it looks pretty accurate. I liked reading yours, it was very interesting!!

Colleen_Katana said...

This was cute! I did it too...but it took me SO long to go through line by line!

Lynnette Labelle said...

That's kind of neat. I'll try it for my blog tomorrow! Sanks.

Angela WD said...

June...prone to getting colds? How bizarre, and true!

Just wanted to let you know I've posted tips related to your Roar Award at this address:

Thanks again for the honor!

Merry Jelinek said...

Hi Mrs. Parker,

Thanks and I'm glad you got a chuckle out of it.


Interesting in a good way, I'll assume :-)

Hi Colleen,

It is a little time consuming, but good for a post - I'll stop over and check yours out soon.

Hi Lynette,

Can't wait to see how accurate yours is.

Hi Angela,

No thanks necessary, I'll stop over to see your tips soon.

Thanks guys for stopping in.

The Anti-Wife said...

October for me. About half right.

inherwritemind1 said...

Yup, you're a Pisces. Me too.

Precie said...

Fun! I'm November, and much of mine is accurate...and the things that aren't REALLY REALLY aren' I'm not "dynamic in person." Also "well-built and tough"...not so much...and probably not very "brave."

But the other stuff I can see.

Fun!! Thanks! :)

Merry Monteleone said...

Hi Anti-wife, 1/2 isn't that bad from some of the feedback I'm hearing on this one.

Hi inherwritemind, a Pisces and a Chicagoan!!! We do have a lot in common. I actually have a lot of friends and acquaintances that are also Pisces and most of them are creative... then again, most of my non-pisces friends are creative... maybe I just like creative people...

Hi Precie,

Great to see you. I did like this one. It was a little time consuming to do but fun.

Josephine Damian said...

Revengeful. – YES – shocked, are you?

Merry, do remind me to stay on your good side :-)

I'm born in October, but late in the month. I was shaky on the October traits (except for "opinionated"), but the November traits are 95% accurate. Interesting, I guess there's something to this since Scorpio's are mostly born in November.

Precie said...

Ooh, Josephine, that might explain why I sometimes think you're my second self. :)
