Your result for The What is Your Spirit Animal Test...

The Otter

Here's your results! Your spirit animal has a Nobility ranking of 11 out of 18.

Your spirit animal is the otter. Playful, curious and fun animals, they are truly the start of what can be considered a noble creature. Otters are good at figuring things out, and make great friends. You are lucky to have one as a spirit animal. Otters are fairly rare as spirit animals.

***Wondering how this animal was chosen for you? These questions were carefully thought out to see how important you hold certain virtues such as: humanism, self-knowledge, rationalism, the love of freedom and other somewhat Hellenic ideals. Some of the questions were very subtle. Your score was then matched with an animal of corresponding nobility. However, you shouldn't think this was a right/wrong sort of test, but more of an idealistic values test. It's ok to not hold these values, you'll just get an animal spirit of lower stature if you do!***

Dear Mother Nature,

My a/c can only handle so much. When it's running on the 'Supercool' setting and I'm still sweating? It's too fucking HOT. Oh, and that nice storm in the middle of the day? Yeah, that just made the humidity jump to 9000%. Thanks for that. No, really. THANKS.

No love,

Dear Autumn,

Hey, sweetheart. You can come along any time.

1. The amount of Karl Urban love on my flist (and friends-of-friends, because work this week has been incredibly slow and omgsoboring) is astounding. It makes me so happy! Yay Karl!

2. Until today, I was mostly immune to the Chris Pine fever because I've never really been a Kirk girl, you know? And then [ profile] green_queen posted this pic of him all bearded and scruffy and... yowza. The scruffy needs to go away now because it is seriously distracting me from The Karl.

3. So, my 20s were all about discovering my various nut allergies. Apparently, my 30s will be about discovering how many kinds of blooming things can turn me into a giant sneezeball. WTF? I spent a week thinking I was getting a cold, but then it would come and go and come and go, so I pawed through the office medicine cabinet this morning and took some allergy meds. Oh, hello clear head!

Allergies=do not want.

I require Karl-Urban-as-Bones icons. A lot of them. If you see some, link me? I will love you forever.

So, I've seen Star Trek twice now and had to exercise a great amount of self-control to keep myself home today instead of seeing it for a third time. I am near giddy with movie love right now. I almost skipped into work Friday morning, so mad is my love.

Mom and I had originally planned on seeing it today, but plans changed on Thursday. I went online to see if our usual movie theatre was having a midnight showing that night, just out of curiosity, and discovered that they were having two early screenings at 7 and 10. I called Mom and said, "I can't wait. I'm going to explode if I don't see it as soon as is humanly possible and that is 7 pm tonight and I MUST GO!" And she said, "I'll see you there."

Spoilers, clearly. And a LOT of squee. You have been warned. )

Someone hacked my WoW account and from the conversation I just had with John, it looks like they deleted my main. My level 80. My lock.

Someone (not sure if it was the building staff or the cafeteria folks or someone else entirely) brought a tv in and set it up in the cafeteria so that people could watch inauguration coverage. I'm so grateful to have gotten to watch President Obama's speech as it happened instead of tonight via YouTube. This is where I watched and who was there with me (crappy phone pics, alas):

You're Mother Teresa!

Selfless, pious, and devoted, you set a very
high standard for people to try to live up to. And yet when
they ask how you do it, you simply offer the advice that
everyone love those around them. Yet your ambitions are great
and you aim to spread your mission to every corner of the
globe, even if its messages and tenets are relatively simple.
While there can be no doubt that religion is prioritized in
your work, the work itself is breathtaking in scope. Though
you have no children, everyone thinks of you as a

IF YOU COULD BUY SPACE FOR MORE, WOULD YOU: At this point, no. The latest boost in spaces made my brain boggle a little. 195 is plenty.
WHAT FANDOM DO YOU HAVE THE MOST ICONS OF: It surprised me, but SG-1 is still in the lead with 9.
AND THE SECOND MOST: Also a surprise, given that I don't watch it anymore, SGA comes in at 2nd with 7. And it's a 3-way (dirty!) tie for 3rd place - LotR, DWho and Firefly all have 6 each.
WHAT SHIP DO YOU HAVE THE MOST ICONS OF: I don't actually have very many shippy icons and no winner. I have one each of the following ships: Luke/Lorelai, John/Aeryn, Vansen/McQueen, Han/Leia, O'Neill/Carter, Constantine/Angela, 9/Rose, Helo/Athena and Mulder/Scully.
DO YOU MAKE ICONS: No, but I did make the one of Maggie using LJ's icon-maker.
ARE THEY ANY GOOD: It's passable.
ANIMATED ICONS ARE: Awesome, though I don't have as many as I thought I did.

I've never really been one for the end-of-the-year wrap-up, but this year, I tried to keep track of the books I read and the movies and TV I watched. Sort of. I forgot for most of the year, but I think I've made a mostly accurate list. I do love lists.

We're having a decorating contest at work where each row plasters their desks with gaudy holiday decorations and whichever row makes the judges blind from all the shiny gets the prize.

Okay, those aren't the exact rules, but that's sort of the way it's turning out.

We have a mini Christmas tree, tons of empty boxes wrapped up like presents, blinking lights, garland, a giant teddy bear dressed like Santa, eleventy million paper snowflakes and ornaments hung from every empty spot to be found. My contribution (besides the 5 rolls of wrapping paper that didn't even put a dent in my ridiculously large personal collection) was wrapping Jose's cubicle like a giant present, complete with enormous red bow. I am particularly proud of it.

It's the most fun I've had at work in I don't even know how long!
