An Amusing Quiz

This quiz is creative...FILLED IN on 01-06-08. Feel free to copy it to your blog...cause you know I stole it from another!!

1 How does the world see me?
I have no idea..I do enough shameless self promotion, but have not yet created enough of a persona (not that I will)to influence the world to think of me one way, or another. Plus, as well as I do Google, the "world" does not really know of me anyway.

2 Will I have a happy life?
So far, so good. I have had a few tragic events in my life and some life altering moments in time, but I try to handle those types of negatives and turn them around.

3 What do people really think of me?
Eeeeew. I have had people call me everything from "nicest ever" to "stoic" to "sociopath". I have been called things like "dramatic", "intimidating", "shy", "gregarious", "intelligent", "blond", "creative", "artistic"...I dunno. The list goes on.

And you may notice a lot of opposites in here. There is a reason for this, but I am not divulging my secret. But trust me when I say that I am aware of it and it is intentional.

4 Do people secretly lust after me?
Oh, why the hell not? Seriously, I have had some men lust after me that should have kept it secret. It makes me nervous.

5 How can I make myself happy?
Shoes. OMG. Shoes.

6 What should I do with my life?
Get out of the 9-5 and create art full time.

7 Will I ever have children?
Uh, no. I am way too busy. I have no idea how I would do it. But, I would make an awesome mom and they would have everything they need in life.

8 What is some good advice for me?'s what the joke advice of my family members urged me to "not give up" when I told them I was too tired to do something. Uh, I get tired, ok? I'm not giving up..,.I just need a nap. Another one is "get well soon". A personal fav really. I will not get into why.

Good advice is always to advise me to keep a good attitude. It is just that my sarcasm and warped sense of humor take over from time to time and are read as bad. They are not.

9 What do I think my current theme song is?
My sister thinks it should be that newer version of the Mary Tyler Moore song. "You're Gona Make it After All." That is too fucking cheesey.

Right now I will go with the Pixies "Where Is My Mind?"

10 What does everyone else think my current theme song is?
"OH my GOD, Becky. LOOK at her BUTT...." or "Shoes."

11 What song will play at my funeral?
Uh, I will make a funeral playlist on iTunes and let the executor to my estate know.

12 What is my day going to be like?
Well, I have a bit of a headache. And quite frankly, I am not looking forward to the week.

13 Why am I here?
I use to cause life altering changes to people who came into contact with me. I actually thought my purpose at one time was to meet certain people and get them from one point in their life to another. That happened with three of my friends in the past.I think that was a product of being in their twenties and early thirties.

But we do have to be mindful at not only how we manage our own lives, but also how we affect and impact the lives of those who we interact with day to day.

Bottom line is that I am here to create stuff.

14 What will people remember me for?
My art and my quirky, non-traditional writing.

15 What song will I get stuck in my head tomorrow?
With any luck, a Venetian Snares song.

16 Are there people outside waiting to take me away?
No, but that is because noone bothered to alert the authorities.

17 What will this year be all about?
ME ME ME!!!! Just like 1968 to 2007...why stop now.

18 If you reached the top of Mount Everest, you would scream:
UH, my ass would fall off because I get vertigo when I am up too high. I would be screamin' bloody murder...REDRUM REDRUM.

19 The next time you stand up in front of a group of people, you'll say:
Thanks everyone, for coming to my sweetass 40th b-day party. Let's BOWL!!!

20 Your message to the world:
If you love to hate, then hate HATE!!!!

21 Your deepest secret:
NOT gona tell ya. You must read my literature and look for visual clues in my art.

22 Your innermost desire:
Uh, see the question above.

23 Your oldest memory makes you think:
My true oldest memory was at two. I was in the hospital and the nurse was covering my crib with an afghan.

My next oldest memory is being in a highcahir and dumping my plate of baked beans everywhere. I remember liking them, though. I just wanted to see what they would look like everywhere else.

And then my next one was of my mom bathing me in the kitchen sink. Later in life I looked at that sink in wonder that I actually fit into it and it seemed HUGE at the time!!

But the next one had more of a long term, weird effect. I was old enough to walk and sit up in a chair. I was sitting on a chair in the dark dining room and looking at my family in the kitchen. They were all sitting around the table laughing and talking. There was my mom and dad, my 20 year old sister, my 17 year old brother, and my 13 year old sister. I remember trying to understand what they were saying to one another. The language was almost completely foriegn to me at the time, and I was frustrated with them. I could understand every few words, but nothing else.

24 Somewhere in your wedding vows, you'll include:
Past tense...they were all pretty standard.

25 When you wake up in the morning, you mutter:
Shoes. OMG. Shoes. Seriously, I did scream out someone's name last week. Thank god Joe was in the shower.

26 Right now, your feelings are:
I am a little blue.

27 The day you fall in love will be the day that:
Wow. I fell in love a long time ago. I fall in love all the time. It's just my nature.

EDIT: I need to explain my concept of love, in that it is a transient state of emotion that is in constant flux. I may be completely in love at one at one point in time, and then apathtic for the same person at another. The "falling in love all the time" does not translate into "I fall in love with various people" means I fall in and out of love with the same people. Love is goddamn complicated.

28 You scream during sex:
Ha!! Uh yeah. I am an auditory person. Quiet sex is boring sex.

29 Your farewell message to the readers of this:
Go forth and blog, create stuff, and have noisy sex.

Bongo Drums You Say?

Why yes, thank you.

PS...Um, it is harder to play these things than you'd think. Joe is a natural drummer and just walks by and makes 'em sound like something.

But, drums and belly dance do go together.

OH yeah, Joe is a natural flutterer, which is a belly dance move where you move your diaphragm really fast and make your belly "wave". When I told him I had trouble with the move, he proceeded to lift his shirt and do it. Grrrrr. :D

I Do Not Own Stock in Walgreens

So, this year has been completely crazy so I have not had time to shop for Christmas gifts. My solution? Walgreens. I bought hundreds of dollars worth of gift certificates. Starbucks, Borders, iTunes, Pier One, Old Navy... they have about 40 different ones. Pretty awesome. No surcharge either. Some people think they do have a fee, but they do not. Even if it had a 3% fee, I would have paid it. Just to get it all done in one spot.

One of my friends teased me about it, but I know he wanted to do it, and more than likely did.

Tomorrow is Friday

Yeah, man. I just got my 88-key keyboard that hooks into my Mac.

And I'm drinking a 15 year old Scotch. Senecal suggested that I buy Glenfiddich Solera Reserve 15 year.

I sold another painting today...of course it is at the more day to sell there...hopefully it will not!!! Not about the commission. More about reproduction. Eve is such a fluid piece. Well they all are, but that one in particular.

This scotch is making me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Joy. Merry Christmas. By the way, I am well on my way to reintroducing "groovy" to the language. I heard it ten times today. Groovy is such a cool word.

Where Is My Mind?

You know, so many cool things come from Boston...

Dresden Dolls...
Liam Sullivan....
The Pixies.....
The Museum of Bad Art......
Boston Market and their creamy spinach side dish. YUM.
Chipotle...Oh, I just made that up. Plus, I have no idea if Boston Market is really from Boston.

So, my mind is on Christmas now...let the spending begin.

Bought a 88 key keyboard to mix music with Garage Band on the Mac today. Complete impulse buy. I was like, fuck it. I want it. Pain and suffering. Kelly's fucking rad.

So, I am trying to be a nicer person. I felt bad because today I made fun of someone in a completely inappropriate way in front of people who did not laugh at my flip comment. And it was funny...but no one laughed. Oh well!

By the way, Vanity Fair in hand, I am about to read about the Golden Suicides.

Belly Dancing

I have been taking belly dance lessons for over a year now. I still love it, although work has been getting in the way of it lately. It is starting to get in the way of my art, too. But, it pays for these things, so I guess I will have to deal with it.

So, the art supplier in MA called Ampersand to have my order rushed. I hope to get it soon. Seems strange that no one in North America has Aquabord in stock...

Since I am randomly rambling, I think I will just go to bed.

Here is a pretty picture to look at...

Happy Day of the Ninja

Ninjas are awesome.

New Commission
Well, I have a new commission. It is actually repeating two of my existing pieces (The Devil's Breath and I Dreamt of a Kiss...) and selling two others (Autumn's Folliage and Infiltration). But, I needed to find 6x6 cradled aquaboard in order to complete the reproductions of my own works. I found a place in Massachusetts that carries it online. Just placed the order, but they did not commit to any ship dates and did not give me a choice to have it rushed. So, I hope to god it makes it here by the 15th.

Mysteriously Happy

I cannot pinpoint the source my current status of glowing happiness, so I guess I will just go with it.

It is not the fact that I went shopping today and bought lots of stuff...for me. I know!! It is Christmas time...I shouldn't do that!! Gasp. But oh yes, I should. Because now I am in the mood to shop and buy multitudes of presents for all the random childrens in my life. I shall go to the internets tomorrow and play a huge part in my country's economic recover. I'm a f'n patriot.
