Red handed... :)

Ok, I have to admit... I love vampire stories. Not Twilight, have you. I'm talking REAL vampires. Dracula vampires. I have an affinity for classic horror. Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi... Val Kilmer in The Murders in the Rue Morgue. I even love horror books... Bram Stoker was a genius! And of course, my favorite... Edgar Allen Poe.

Many pieces of art remind me of Poe's work. This one for instance. It seems to be one thing, but with further inspection, it becomes something different. Absolutely magnifique! Another. And one more, because it's too cute not to share...

Personality tests. :)

My mom got a personality type book to teach a careers class at a homeschool co-op. But being the personality type she is, she had to test everyone in our family. We have a mixture of every personality type in our house.

D=Dominance: Direct and to the point, decisive and bottom line oriented. These people tend to be independent and results driven. They are strong-willed people who enjoy challenges, taking action, and immediate results.

Which is the same as "Choleric":
A person who is choleric is a do-er. They have a lot of ambition, energy, and passion, and try to instill it in others. They can dominate people of other temperaments, especially phlegmatic types. Many great charismatic military and political figures were choleric. They like to be leaders and in charge of everything. They can be very manipulative.

My dad and one of my sisters is a D.

I=Influence: Optimistic and outgoing. Often highly social and out going. They prefer participating on teams, sharing thoughts, and entertaining and energizing others.

I's are the same as "Sanguine":
The Sanguine temperament personality is fairly extroverted. People of a sanguine temperament tend to enjoy social gatherings, making new friends and tend to be boisterous. They are usually quite creative and often daydream. However, some alone time is crucial for those of this temperament. Sanguine can also mean very sensitive, compassionate and thoughtful. Sanguine personalities generally struggle with following tasks all the way through, are chronically late, and tend to be forgetful and sometimes a little sarcastic. Often, when pursuing a new hobby, interest is lost quickly when it ceases to be engaging or fun. They are very much people persons. They are talkative and not shy. People of sanguine temperament can often be emotional.

We have two I's in our house. They just about drive the rest of us insane...

S=Steadiness: Empathetic & Cooperative. Typically team players and are supportive and helpful to others. They prefer being behind the scene, working in consistent and predictable ways. They are often good listeners and avoid change and conflict.

S's are the same as "Phlegmatic":
Phlegmatics tend to be self-content and kind. They can be very accepting and affectionate. They may be very receptive and shy and often prefer stability to uncertainty and change. They are very consistent, relaxed, calm, rational, curious, and observant, making them good administrators. They can also be very passive-aggressive.

We have a few S's. In our house, they make things flow smoothly. We love our S's.

C=Conscientiousness: Concerned, Cautious & Correct. These individuals are often focused on details and quality. They plan ahead, constantly check for accuracy, and what to know "how" and "why".

C's are the same as "Melancholic":
A person who is a thoughtful ponderer has a melancholic disposition. Often very considerate and get rather worried when they could not be on time for events, melancholics can be highly creative in activities such as poetry and art - and can become preoccupied with the tragedy and cruelty in the world. A melancholic is also often a perfectionist. They are often self-reliant and independent; one negative part of being a melancholic is sometimes they can get so involved in what they are doing they forget to think of others.

As far as we can tell at the moment. I'm the only "C" in the house. Which can make some pretty tense moments. No one seems to understand why it matters to me that there is a "t" on the end of "kept". Or why I would care to know that there is a certain kind of snake that can digest it's own heart to stay alive.

Sunday Scrutiny.

So I realized that Mufasa is DARTH VADER!!! Mind. Blown.

They're making The Lion King 3D? I guess they ran out of good ideas and are re-living the past???

How can anyone not love watching a drunk squirrel? Haha.

Geek My Kindle!

I set out today to post some geeky Kindle cases. There are a lot out there people! I can't share every single one, so I'll just show the ones that stuck out to me.

(And as a side note, for you ipod/iphone people, I swoon at the sight of ohmycake's wonderful ipod cases! I can't decide which I like more... the Poptart or the Toast...Sadly since I don't have an ipod or an iphone, I'll just be happy with my Kindle.)

First a little something for you Hitchhiker fans:

Found via: Craft

Angry Birds:

And Mario is always in style:

Tardis by MyFunkyCamelot

And one more since I can't leave off with an odd number and because the little guy practically demanded that I share him:

Mwaahahahahaha. :)

So I decided I should start a blog... mostly because there is no way on earth my FB friends like having their home feed spammed by my geek attacks. :) The point of this is to give me an outlet. :)

A little about me:
I'm a half time novelist... meaning I start a novel(total cool story lines, might I add)... and only write half of it before moving on to another story... :P
I'm a melancholy personality. Sometimes, I make Eeyore look like Tigger...
I love my animals; a rescued Quaker Parrot named Harley... he was abused and only likes me...and even that is subject to change from time to time. :P A rescued American Bulldog named Dodge... 80lbs of "OH! I WANNA GO THIS WAY!"(Think Chance from Homeward Bound ). And last but not least, a Bearded Dragon named Cleopatra.
I am the oldest of 10 children.
I still live at home with my parents(give me a break, I'm only 19).
I wish so bad that I could be a Cultural Anthropologist... but I don't have the money...
I've read more than 1,400 books in my lifetime.
I spend HOURS reading Epbot, Girl Genius and Cake Wrecks.
I'm into Steampunk.
I play Viola and Violin.
Due to "weird bones"(no joke, the exact words the Dr. used), I hear differently than most people; As a result, music is a passion of mine. Not only do I hear music, I feel it in my head.
I would love to go to a Comic convention, but sadly, it has never happened.
Pirates are a passion of mine. :) (Henry Every= BEST PIRATE EVER!!!)

And I think that should be enough... So... yeah, this is me. :)
