I Am a Sagitarius

Here is a lovely meme that I have been tagged for by Avery Gray. I think I got her mad once because I spelled her name as "Grey" once and she hates that. So---she spelled my name with an extra "a" and boy, am I feeling it. I'm not letting that one go, sweetheart.

This is the month I was born, and here are the traits that fit me and don't fit me. It is like astrology, which is bogus, but I will play along. He he. My neighbor would be proud. She goes on and on about Sagitariuses and how they are so self-ish (she had dated a few) and I say, "What the heck, I am a Sagitarius!" and of course, the expert blurts out (to save her butt), "but you are a woman and that doesn't count!" For crying in a bucket, how is that true? It is based on month, not gender, am I right? Good grief...anyhow, I am selfish, ok? Because Orion, a planet, and two other stars lit up at the right time, aligned themselves and made it so. And I just made a fool of myself because I have no idea what I am talking about and it is apparent.

DECEMBER:
1.Loyal and generous. I would seriously like to think so. I forsake buying underwear so can buy the kids some shampoo. As far as loyal---I am like a dog.
2. Sexy. Not talking about it.
3. Patriotic. Seriously, not in the least. This almost made me laugh out loud. Don't bite me people, I have the freedom of speech!
4. Active in games and interactions. I guess I can be if I get into it. Can you tell I am totally buying this whole thing? Gee whiz! I am morphing!
5. Impatient and hasty. I certainly get impatient----like when three kids are talking to me at the same time or when Eraser Eater starts whining at me----lips wrap around heads, man. Watch out. I am not hasty. Who am I kidding, this thing has me pegged.
6. Ambitious. This is true. And I don't make resolutions on New Year's because of it!
7. Influential in organizations. Like bookclubs? Co-ops? Maybe. Who knows what this means. I'm just a housewife who has not seen much of the world.
8. Fun to be with. I completely beg to differ. I am kind of a downer to be around in lots of ways. The kids don't think I am too fun. If I smile they are elated. Try me out when I am raking leaves. I am the best company. I like to say short little irritated phrases like, "Move!" "Hold the bag!" "Lift it!" "Open it up, for Pete's sake!" "You are STANDING THERE IT IS NOT HARD TO DO!"
9. Loves to socialize. Maybe. Not really. I mean, social situations scare me at first but then of course, like usual, I adapt. And to avoid awkward silences I blab out a bunch of stuff I shouldn't too. Dear Sir just loves that part.
10. Loves praises. Last time I checked, everyone loves praises. I only love praises though that are sincere. I HATE flattery and I can sense it from a mile away.
11. Loves attention. I have a love-hate relationship with attention. I will not explain this.
12. Loves to be loved. I actually hate to be loved. What kind of dumb new-found revelation is that?
13. Honest and trustworthy. In all humility I can honestly say that this is true.
14. Not pretending. Flattery is much like pretending.
15. Short tempered. It takes a lot to make me angry---I am just short tempered with my kids. When you have kids, all the bad stuff just doesn't leak out, it pours out.
16. Changing personality. Ok, I am confused now. Isn't "not pretending" not changing personality? How can I be both? I change personalities? Well, I kind of do. I actually do. Yep, that's me.
17. Not egotistic. Everyone is egotistic. I am just less. And perfect to boot.
18. Take high pride in oneself. I have a lot to say about this but I won't get preachy. Pride cometh before a fall, right? Refer to #17.
19. Hates restrictions. I love restrictions. They comfort me. Restrictions mean that I have less decisions to make.
20. Loves to joke. I thoroughly enjoy joking. Most of the time when I do it though, no one gets it, I look like a complete idiot, and people take me seriously. A friend once told me that when I joke I have a completely serious face and freak people out by it. I think this is true. It is hard for people to read me at first. I am working on it, ok? Acquired taste, like red wine. I am much like red wine.
21. Good sense of humor. You know, I think I have one, and lots of other people do too, but Dear Sir just doesn't think I am funny. He doesn't even laugh at what I laugh at. I think he is very funny and he doesn't get it. I found one time a letter from him when we were dating and he stated all the things he loved about me. One of them was that I was funny. I am confused. I think he was just trying to marry me. I have been duped.
22. Logical. Do I have to be logical to have common sense? It usually takes me a good while to figure out the easier way of doing things. I struggle with both logic and common sense.



Here I am tagging 12 people. Do I know that many? Maybe I will scale it down to eight just because I am more of a simple person. Yeah, that's what I'll do. Hopefully if some of you read this you will be inspired to WRITE once in awhile:

My husband is a Sag. He's not at all selfish, but he would say he is. Here's mine:

Loves those who loves them.(Sure, why not?)
Loves to take things at
the center. (huh? what does that even mean?)

Lies but doesn't pretend. (I don't lie, but I sometimes pretend.)

often. (not really. In fact, not much at all.)
Treats friends importantly. (Actually, I think this is one where I could use a little improvement.)
Always making friends. (Hmm, regularly, but not "always".)
Easily hurt but
recovers easily. (I do recover easily, and I forgive always. I guess I am hurt easily, but I recover so quickly I almost don't notice being hurt.)

think. (Totally wrong)

I am so glad you posted this! I was going to totally tag you but knew you would not want this on the beadblog! I enjoyed reading that.

JRH said...

Hey, thanks for the tag. I promise to do this...or possibly some alternate version, as soon as I get the chance. ;-) Actually, since I'm approaching the end of things over there (or maybe it's the beginning!) it might work well for me!

Avery Gray said...

Aren't those funny? Like "Thinks far with vision." WTF? What does that mean? I couldn't figure it out.

These are awesome! Thanks for playing along!

Natalie said...

yeah... with the no blogging... just not had much to say by way of interesting things... maybe this WILL spark something! thanks for keeping up with me...

Lisa said...

Egads! I've been tagged! LOL

I'm on it...

I'm a Sag too! ;o)

Emma Sometimes said...

I finally did mine, it's up today. That was funny to read. Maybe Dear Sir is laughing on the inside.

R said...

Emma--Dear Sir laugh on the inside?! Impossible! No, I have no clue. The guy is an enigma.
