funny, that.

Spirited along from Kelly n Rose

You are Form 0, Phoenix: The Eternal.

"And The Phoenix's cycle had reached
zenith, so he consumed himself in fire. He
emerged from his own ashes, to be forever

Some examples of the Phoenix Form are Quetzalcoatl (Aztec), Shiva (Indian), and Ra-Atum (Egyptian). The Phoenix is associated with the concept of life, the number 0, and the element of fire. His sign is the eclipsed sun.

As a member of Form 0, you are a determined individual. You tend to keep your sense of optomism, even through tough times and have a positive outlook on most situations. You have a way of looking at going through life as a journey that you can constantly learn from. Phoenixes are the best friends to have because they cheer people up easily.

Which Mythological Form Are You?

a pic is worth a least a couple of interesting posts

Meme-age, which I scavenged from Ms. Pants cos it's wicked:

--Think of a picture youd like to see from me.
--Leave whatever youd like to see in the comments; things around the house, whatever, stuff that's easily photographed.
--Once I have enough requests, Ill start posting them.
--If I cant feasibly take a photograph of what you'd like to see, I'll let you know and you'll be welcome to give me another option or to tell me to piss off.
--If you ask for something that is pervy and/or I'm not up for it, I'll make fun of you publically. Or not.

PROGRESS (only cos I woke up at 4am): I took heaps of shots last night and had a ball, although none of them are uploaded yet as I fell asleep watching Law and Order sexy!hubby had to work on the USB-enabled 'puter, and now that puter is virus-checkin'.

(Which is also another reason I don't always get to emails quickly - they all get downloaded to that puter, and I only have mail2web and 1 day worth of server time to get to them on this side of the room.)

Other pics may take a day or two - Harvey, I think yours may require a fake tan. Were just coming out of winter here, yo. And mikey, I went for the flush, but I don't think it will answer your question - there was no 'spiralling'. Maybe I'll have to run a bath and let that out to capture it... And Helen... you evil chick *wink*. Believe me, there are WAY too many frumpy pics of me at my mum's place, mainly cos I was a extremely tardy bloomer.

Oooh. Goldie said 'bloomer'.

have you jumped off a bridge just cos everyone else did?

Whored from... lessee... mikey, gennie and rachel (that I've remembered anyways).

Don't know the drill? The embolded things are stuff I've done. Not to say that I don't have plans to do some of the other stuff. I'm finding it just as interesting to see what people haven't done though...

You get 50 points if you read the whole thing.

lazy sunday fun

Via Gennie and rachel: a meme! The first meme while I've been at mu.nu in fact.

The Saturday 8 ('cept it's really Sunday down under):

1. How many people have you dated that were not naturalised citizens of your country?
Quite a few actually. My husband was born in Ireland and is half Irish/half Dutch, and a Canadian citizen (Vancouver for 7 years). Plus I dated another Irish guy (a resident but not a citizen), a Liverpudlian and a Scottish bloke. It got to the point when people would see me eyeing off a guy and they'd ask "Does he have an accent? Cos if not, he won't be Goldie's type." But it wasn't on purpose, I swear!!!

2. Have you ever dated someone that was not of your race? How did that work out?

3. How many different countries have you visited?
To borrow Gennie's response, "Sadly, none. I plan to remedy that one day." Yes. I guess I need a passport first. It doesn't help that sexy!hubby has been just about EVERYWHERE *grrr*

4. If you could go to a specific country of your choice ... no expenses spared ... where would go visit, and why?
Well Ireland of course. Maybe we'll go with rachel and Gary. sexy!hubby actually wants to take me to Vancouver first though.

5. My favourite food is Greek food (i'm American). What is your favourite international flavour?
In Aus we have sooo many different cuisines, especially Asian due to its proximity and the amount of Asian people living here, so we get treated to all sorts of amazing cuisines. I adore Thai, Indian and Japanese, and I also LOVE Mexican and Italian. YUM!

amelie.bmp6. I love French and Indian movies. What other countries' movies do you enjoy?
Like Gennie, I love British/Irish movies. I grew up with them. I don't much like Aussie movies lately (blasphemy!), but I adored Muriel's Wedding and Priscilla =D. I also love French films (Amelie, the Apartment and Betty Blue to name a couple) no matter how cliched that may sound. I don't mind American movies on average, but what a generalisation that is! Eg, American indie cinema is FABULOUS, while the mainstream stuff averages OK. Depends on what genre you like I guess.

7. How many other languages do you speak besides your native language?
I can speak a little Italian. I'd love to live in France and learn the language from the locals like a friend of mine did.

8. Do you have international friends, and what countries do they come from?
To borrow another response from Gennie, "Thanks to the internet and this blog, I have friends from all over the world. And I love you all! :)" Ditto babe! *mwah*!

You're Betty Boop!

Who 's Your Inner Sexy Cartoon Chick ?
brought to you by Quizilla

Hmmm. I can live with that. However I'm still incensed they used Wilma Flintsone as one of their other Sexy Cartoon Chicks. You think they would have at least gone with Pebbles.

UPDATE: yep G-Fry, Pebbles and Bam Bam grew up and had their own cartoons as Harvey said. And she was a lil hottie!

The other options included Jess Rabbit (who certainly IS drawn that way) and Daphne from Scooby Doo, who I always thought was a bit of a hornbag really, behind all that mysteriousness of course. However I can't remember the other one... obviously she wasn't any good.

well i knew i was sick

...but this isn't ridiculous at all.

Doctor Unheimlich has diagnosed me with
Cause:allergy to civet cats
Symptoms:mild hypothermia, floating hair, seeing dead people, photophobia
Cure:infect someone else
Enter your name, for your own diagnosis:

OK, I should be all better now.

Although no one could accuse me of photophobia. *ahem*
