You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily.
Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.
You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.

You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in.
You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.
You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care.

Over Christmas some of my cousins were in town and stayed at my house. I have decided that to feel super good about my self and have other people think i'm really funny I need to hang out with them more. I have friends, Karin most notably, who are very witty. I would not consider myself in this category. But when these kids are here everything I say is riotous. I get to use all of my "best stuff", which is not much, on them. Note the following...

10:30 p.m. on a work night after having just seen a movie...

Rachel & Will: "Are you gonna come over and watch Harry Potter with us?"
Me: "Probably not."
R & W: "Why not?" (said in fake whiny voices)
Me: "I have to get up at the butt crack of dawn!"
R & W: laughter... "but crack of dawn! that's awesome!"

a few moments later...

Aunt Donna: "Lindz, are you gonna come over and watch Harry Potter"
Rachel: "No, she has to get up at the butt crack of dawn"
Aunt Donna: EXCUSE ME? (with a very motherly look)
Me: Ummmm....ya I just said that to them...I'm SO sorry!

Note to self: know the age of your audience when saying "funny stuff".

Thanks Karin...
