After thoughts and a Merrier Topic of BYOC...

Thank you guys.. I really wanted to scream after I reacted to some crappy news, but no, I consoled myself with ice cream.. and it didn't make the problem go away, and it didn't make me feel better, and I am not going to think about it any more. But it confirms one thing, I still have not freed myself of this behavioral REaction. It's over.. let's move on..
And no Sandy.. it was not heaLthy, it was all pure sugar.. (but it did taste good).

Now that I have consumed my daily calories and fat grams in one spoonful let me move on to more motivating things like BYOC!!

1. In the spirit of back to school time - what is your favorite school supply?
Well. my favorite school supply is money, because I don't have to buy these any more!!!
2. Assume your house is on fire and the whole thing is going to burn to the ground and your loved ones are out and safe….and you have a few minutes to grab 5 things. Just five. What would they be?
This is going to be lame.
1. My Yorkies
2.My computer (which has my pictures)
3. My jewelery
4. My car keys so I can move the car for the firetrucks
5. My husband
3. In the spirit of my new found love on vacation – what is your favorite drink – alcoholic or not?
(C2H5OH) and lemon aide. 
That's alcohol and juice.
4. When is your birthday (if you want to say, no year needed) and what is your Zodiac sign. Does your sign match your personality?

I am an early January (9th) baby, Capricorn and I am dead on in every way and description;

A Feminine Negative Cardinal Earth Sign

• Polar or Opposite sign: Cancer - sorry Mom
• Colour: Dark brown, black and grey -seen my wardrobe.. it is almost all black
• It is difficult to prise you out of your work ethic, but take time to traverse this room - I am very ethical.. I work in Drug COmpliance for cripes sake!!

Positive Traits

• Practical and prudent - yep
• Ambitious and disciplined -Yep, ask my kids
• Patient and careful - yeah, I don't know about this one.
• Humorous and reserved - yeah, I am a freakin riot sometimes, especially after a pint of ice cream

Negative Traits

• Pessimistic and fatalistic - glass half empty person (doom is here.. drama and trauma)
• Miserly and grudging - sometimes (hopefully not all times)

Capricorn Likes: hot, simple food, antiques, history, duties and responsibilities, not being pressured by others, having plenty of unconditional love, lots of personal privacy, new books, and expensive gemstones. I Like to be the boss, and yes I like my jewelry (did I mention that as one of my items to save from the fire)

Capricorn Dislikes:untidiness and disorder of all kinds, being teased, surprises, new ideas, loneliness, being made to feel useless or incompetent, and being embarrassed in public - have I mentioned that I can not manage chaos and need to have a plan and direction in place.. if things are out of order I wind up eating a pint of ice cream (seriously, I have issues)

 Important Parameters

Lucky Number - 18  I used to be that size and age
Lucky Color - Peacock Blue yes love blue
Lucky Flower - Snowdrop, Solomon's seal- don't know
Lucky Gemstone - Garnet- love garnets
Lucky Day - Friday - yeah not today.

General features
A typical Capricorn has good organizational skills, - Oh yes I do
 is neat and tidy, - Neat Freak
have hardheaded practicality. - My way or the highway
You have strong work ethic,- Sure I will take on that global project, no problem
 materialistic tendencies, - sorry, yes sometimes I do
a conservative streak, - yeah not much of a liberal
conventionality and great respect for authority- yes
You are ambitious- yes
serious and dedicated to duty. - yes
You are self-disciplined,- in general yes, but not today
responsible and practical but at times,
 you can wallow in self-pity. really, I didn't notice poor me and my sometimes drama 
Your reasoning ability is excellent and has strong sense of purpose and direction. -thank you
A Capricorn may appear somber and reserved in their dealings with others, but once they give the trust, they are a loyal and steadfast friend. I am the best friend ever!
Socially oriented, you are willing to work hard for anything you want, and your self-esteem is extremely important to you. - yeah that is true too
You are bright and quick.
You are good in detail as well as in insight and conceptual formulation.
 You are materialistic rather than philosophical.
You are capable of falling in love for its own pleasure but love alone will not motivate you to marriage. To you marriage serves a social design- hmm. no comment.

5. A little spin on my repeat question. I usually ask which blog or comment stuck with you and why? You can answer that as usual or how about just giving a summary of your week or how you feel about blog land this past week or anything you noticed…does that make sense?

I love blogland  as I have said before .. it makes me smile! :)


  1. Barbara, from one pessimist to another (ever heard the term "catastrophic thinking"? it's my specialty), MWAH! MWAH! MWAH!

  2. I am a cancer and I don't feel like we're polar opposites... I think it may be because I am a cusp baby... cancer/gemini. *Maria*

  3. YOU make me smile.....I puffy heart you to pieces!

  4. Sorry about the bad news. Don't let guilt add to the bad day. You'll forego next time. XO
