The Gullibility Factor and Other Mish Mash

Your GF score is 58.
(Out of a range of 0 - 100, where 0 = mind slave, and 100 = free thinker.)

Mind slave

(You) 58
Free thinker

As a Learner, you're smart enough to know better, yet you're still not fully informed about reality. Around 15% of the population are Learners. You have the critical thinking skills to be a truly free individual, but you haven't exercised them enough yet. From time to time, you're still manipulated by the powers that be, although you frequently learn from those mistakes and refuse to be exploited again. You buy things because they are practical, not because they're cool.
If you were in The Matrix, you would have taken the red pill, but you would still be in a state of mild disbelief about the nature of reality. You are essentially unplugged, but still untrained. With more knowledge, you could become a true free thinker.

Your architects:
You have always been an independent thinker. You rebelled against your parents, schoolteachers and always chose to hang out with smart friends who weren't necessarily that popular to the "in" crowd. Increasingly, you shape your own world by deciding what actions to take based on your own internal drive rather than what society tells you is right.

Action steps:
Learn more. Educate yourself through alternative media and cutting-edge books. Read the answers below to get started.

((Now, the answers to the questions sound awful opinionated to me, but I took it anyhow))

What's your Gullibility Factor?

How Observant Are You?
There are 3 differences between these two almost identical photos, can you find them?

A Love Story...
I will seek and find you…
I shall take you to bed and have my way with you…
I will make you ache, shake & sweat until you moan & groan.
I will make you beg for mercy, beg for me to stop.
I will exhaust you to the point that you will be relieved when I'm finished with you.
And, when I am finished, you will be weak for days.

All my love,

The Flu
PS: Now, get your mind out of the gutter and go get your flu shot!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!! Hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween.

Doing Okay

--Well, things on this front have been doing okay so far. It has taken hard work and lots of patience taking care of a little baby kitten that for some reason wasn't getting the idea of using the litter box. She is slowly but surely getting better at it, and we are seeing less and less of her little presents around the house. My guess is that she was so young, that she didn't have much control over her little potty urges.
Sugar was having issues with her at first as well: hissing, growling, moaning and groaning, hiding out under the bed a lot...and it was starting to wear on me, making me worry that they would never get along. It has been two weeks since Roger and I decided to take little Ginger in, and Sugar is finally starting to look out for her and play with her. I have some pics of them playing that I'll post as soon as I get around to it. She still gripes now and again, but I'm thinking it is because little Ginger's sharp little claws and teeth hurt quite a bit. Just this morning, I was in a comatose sleep (let's just say that I have a damn good man ;o) ) to be awakened by Ginger deciding my arm looked like a good ladder to hoist herself up onto the bed with. Talk about a rude awakening... :o( As soon as she's old enough, her female bits and claws are going to be taken out for good. I'm allergic to cats as a general rule, but if they stay as inside cats and I am able to rid them of their claws, I can usually handle the allergic reactions to them quite a bit better.

--Life has been keeping me busy as well:
A) Roger - I've been playing house with him, by trying to keep him content by feeding him and trying to keep things tidy. I'm not nearly as anal about cleanliness as he is, so if he doesn't like how I keep something clean, he'll go and redo it himself. I'm perfectly okay with that. I keep the kitchen clean (i.e. the stove, the dishes, etc) and I keep the cats from getting stinky or too messy with their food. I also help out with the laundry here and there. Hopefully that is enough for him to agree that I'm helping out and not just a lazy, useless moocher.
B) School - I started my internship and have been going to that once a week, on top of my normal classes. Keeping up with homework, the crud-load of papers that I'm having to do (that will be a running theme in all of my teaching classes, looks like) plus the extra stuff I've picked up with having to keep up on my Interning....::takes a deep sigh::
C) Money - I'm still not cleared to go back to work yet, so I'm really stressing out about money lately. Roger doesn't make enough to support the both of us completely, and my bank account got very very scarey like lows...I had $12 in it before I had to borrow money from my parents. Nothing makes me feel worse than having to stoop to asking for money because I'm poor. My mom said it was no big deal, that I'm not working and that's not my fault, so she doesn't mind helping out.

Picture Crazy

Okay, so I haven't written in a week and I have Roger's camera that I've been going hog-wild crazy with, hehe. I have a crud load of pics that I want to talk about and I'm thinking it would just be better to post the Url here goes. :oD

--An adorable new kitty that Roger and I got together, Ginger. She isn't very old, maybe 5 weeks old. We felt sorry for her because her mommy got hit by a vehicle and the rest of her litter went to find their mommy, only to end up with the same fate. She was the only one left. She is so small, I put my phone in the pic to give somewhat of an idea of how small. My phone is only 3 Inches tall, not counting the antenna.

--A couple of other kitties at my parent's house. The black one is Koffee and the calico is Cinnamon. Koffee used to be my kitty, but he kind-of adopted my mother, and as you can see in the pic, is in love with Cinnamon. They'd probably have babies, if they both weren't fixed, heh.

--My heart and soul, Sugar. I wouldn't trade her for the world. I got her shortly after my first love completely devistated my heart, and she helped me to recover and filled the great void Aaron left in my very being. Here is me and Sugar bonding, hehe, awwww <3 ((Yes, that is a bit of my cleavage O.O)) Again, me and Sugar :oD

--Two pics of my love, Roger. Isn't he just to die for? ((He hates those pics, I think he needs some encouragement ladies ::wink, wink::)) ::needs a change of panties:: Also Roger and Sugar bonding, awwww!!!!! <3

--Okay, so last week I get a call from a girl that I was friends with when I worked at Burger King. It was over a year ago when BK closed. We used to be pretty good friends, hung out together, I really liked her three kids, and was kool enough with her that I was even okay with her smoking her bong with me in the room ((Those of you that really know me, you all know how strict my rules are about drugs in my presence)); however, she just stopped talking to me for some reason. Life just got too busy I guess. So, she calls me and says, "I was just digging through my old phone book, found your number, and thought I'd hit pay dirt so I thought I'd call you." about strange, but kool. I am, playing some two-player computer games with my love last night and my phone starts ringing. I didn't recognize the number, but I answer it. "Mandy? Hey! How are you? This is Lisa..." So...I hadn't heard from Lisa in 3+ about blast from the past. She says, "So, I was cleaning out old numbers from my phone book and got way excited when I found your number and thought 'Mandy!!' and called you." Strange...two friends that I used to be really good friends with at one time, calling me in less than a week from each other....Anywho, she got married (her husband Aaron in the pic) and had a tot, Wesley. I am really happy to hear that things are going so well for her.

And Again

Oh Gawd...someone stop me....

Fire element

Your element is Fire. Like fire, you have a hot
temper and you can be warm and loving as well
and angry and wild. It all really comes down to
what you are feeling. You have a lot of close
friends who you are very protective over, and
with your temper probably some enemies too. You
are not Miss/Mr Popular in school since you are
your own person and don't want to be forced
into behaving this or that way. You are the
untamed wild horse, the kind that everyone
wants to catch. But you don't want to be tied
down for the moment and just keep going with
your little crushes. Your will is strong and if
you set your mind to do something, you will
most likely succeed. But beware, your friends
may not always accept your mood-swinging
behaviour. Even if you don't mean to be mean,
they can still feel hurt. You just need to
start thinking some things through before you
do them, and not always jump in with so much
courage. One day you may be hurt because of
that, but then again, your element isn't fire
if you start to analyse situations before you
act. After all, your nature is to shoot first
and ask the questions later.
What is your element?


Your Japanese name should be


which means

You can be compared with
autumn, the way the autumn weather changes, is
how your feelings change. You have these mood
swings you can't control; one moment you're
happy, the next you're feeling almost
depressed. You're probably sensitive and

Which Japanese name fits you best?


You aren't connected to any of the 5
basic senses... You are actually most connected
to your 6th sense. We know that humans have
five basic senses or ways in which to detect
signals coming from the world around them.
Those five senses are: sight, hearing, smell,
taste, and touch. There also seems to be a 6th
sense--a psychic sense--that many people
possess. People with this sense claim to be
able to predict the future, sense spirits, and
even read others' minds. Many people have
experienced dreams, visions, or unexplained
feelings where they could predict some future
event, sense a spirit or presence of something
or someone, or even read someone else's mind.
This happens to so many people--especially
concerning sensing future events. You might not
be able to do those things, but even so, your
6th sense seems to be seeking attention.
Anyway, the 6th sense seems to be different for
each person. You may have visions through
dreams or trances, you may sense other
vibrations in the air, you could have a really
strong intuition, or maybe you can sometimes
know what a person is going to say before they
say it, or many other things. It just depends.
It's different for all. But just remember one
thing: Not every gift is a blessing...

~Which of the 5 senses are you most connected to?~

Bored and On My Own

Okay! Okay! I'm this wool:
You are Merino Wool.
You are Merino Wool.You are very easygoing and sweet.
People like to keep you close because you are so softhearted.
You love to be comfortable and warm from your head to your toes.

What kind of yarn are you?

Wow...okay maybe I shouldn't be left to do these on my own! :oD

Okay..the faking it part isn't ever true, that's a wrong thing to do.
The rest of it is though:

advertising condoms
The advertising Condom!!ohh you are a show-off!! You like
to be the center of attention. In bed you would even go so far
as to fake it if it puts on a good show, the
praises afterwords turn you on.. so the way it
happens your partner better be up for plenty of
rounds! =)
Best position: On top

Condoms!! what is your kind of condom AND what does it mean?
( with pics not dirty sheesh!)

This is true, wish I looked like her too! :ob


?? Which Of The Greek Gods Are You ??

Speaking of Love...Haha! I know, ooey-gooey-mushy stuff again.
Gee...I wonder who this one refers to...?


People see love in your eyes. You either love
everyone around you ooor...somebody's in
loooove, no? Seriously, though... You seem to
have a lot of love in your heart right now.
You're singing songs and picking flowers...or
at least you feel like doing so. And we can't
forget floating on air, right? Well, don't let
anyone ruin that for you, and if things don't
turn out...don't worry over it. There are worse
things, and you know it.

What can people see in your eyes?


you're a flower faerie! your very cheery and bright,
and most of the time your laughing along with
your many friends. nothing ever gets you down
except every once in a while.

what would you be in a fantasy world? (amazing pics!)

Stolen Name

I just had to...and Lynlee's turned out better.
Abhorrent Maiden-Abducting Nightmare from the Dreaded Abbey
Ravenous Ogre from the Gloomy Enchanted Ruin


The Death Card

You are the Death card. Death is a stage in the cycle of life. Without death, there would be no room for new things to grow. When you receive the Death card in a tarot reading, fear not; Death is only an indication that transformation is about to occur. Death allows us all to evolve by removing that which is no longer needed. The end of one cycle makes way for a new one. Old behaviours and patterns which have tied us down are released. Death cleans house so that we don't have needless drains on our energy. In Death's ruthless destruction there lies compassion. Image from: Danielle Sylvie Taylor
Which Tarot Card Are You?

Why do I do this? ::laughs:: You need to stop the madness, Lynlee!! :ob

You are a - Neutral Sheep! Congrats - you do what you like!
You make your own rules, not follow the flock!
Which flock do you follow?

--I was feeling kind-of down Thursday (the same reasons I was crying all night last Friday night) and my sister sent me an IM with my romantic compatibility with Roger. I know it sounds silly...but it actually made me feel better. It is so weird how true this thing was, how things have actually happened this way so far:

Romantic Compatibility

Provided by

Sagittarius & Capricorn

When Sagittarius and Capricorn join together in a love match, things may start slow and they may feel that they don't have much to gain from the other. In some ways, Sagittarius and Capricorn are opposites: Sagittarius is easy going, whimsical, seeks knowledge for its own sake, always jumps headfirst into new things, and is typically impatient. Capricorn is detail-oriented and passive, even shy, and is always looking toward the next project. Their differences can actually forge a stronger relationship in the long run, there being vast amounts each partner can learn from the other.

Early in the relationship, Sagittarius and Capricorn may not be able to see past one another's flaws. Sagittarius can at times seem unruly, and Capricorn may come across as pompous and elitist. But once they stop focusing on one another's faults and look to their respective strengths, they'll see a vast pool of attractive qualities. Sagittarius can show Capricorn adventure and excitement, and can offer a glimpse of the freedom so often missing from Capricorn's life. Capricorn teaches Sagittarius to pay attention to detail, uncovers the knowledge that the little things are important, and helps them to harness their random energy. Sagittarius may view Capricorn as too responsible, and will teach their partner to lighten up. Capricorn may accuse Sagittarius of being reckless and impulsive, and can help them to become well mannered.

Sagittarius is ruled by the Planet Jupiter and Capricorn follows the Planet Saturn. Jupiter is about higher learning, philosophy, expansion of knowledge and good luck that sometimes leads to excess. Saturn is the ruler of hard work, assiduousness, ambition and responsibility. Their affects on one another can be positive and tend to bring out each other's best aspects. Both Signs need to take a step back to appreciate their partner's approach; Sagittarius can teach Capricorn to be more spontaneous, while at the same time gaining stability from Capricorn's rational outlook.

Sagittarius is a Fire Sign, and Capricorn is an Earth Sign. Sagittarius initiates projects after philosophical evaluation, while Capricorn takes more practical, factual approach. Capricorn will think about the consequences of their activities, whereas Sagittarius loves to explore merely for their own personal satisfaction. Although these partners may have difficulties arising from their diverse morals, when they put their differences aside they make an excellent couple due to their well-rounded, complementary natures.

Sagittarius is a Mutable Sign, and Capricorn is a Cardinal Sign. Sagittarius isn't necessarily a leader or motivating force; when they have a good idea and see a way to contribute, they enjoy doing their part. Capricorn, on the other hand, comes up with the ideas and assigns roles to others. Sagittarius and Capricorn can work toward the same goals with great success due to a lack of conflict over roles.

What's the best aspect of the Sagittarius-Capricorn relationship? It's their effectiveness in working out minor bumps in the road. When they overcome their initial resistance to one another, this pair will see how much they have to gain from one another. Their personalities, different in so many ways, make theirs a highly effective love match.

--So I tried to cut off my toe while shaving...I don't know how I accomplished cutting off a nice sized chunk of skin off of my toe while shaving my legs, so don't even ask. It bled for two days and I went through more than 12 bandaids. :o( Way to go clumsy me...heh...Roger's getting a full mouthfull of my clumsiness right away, and we've only been together 2 months. Now he knows that I mean it when I say I'm accident prone.

--I go back to the orthopedic doctor on the 13th, this Thursday, so I'll update on my foot then.

--Sin City was a pretty good movie. With the filming, acting, production, and segments it reminded me of a movie version of the movie Heavy Metal. Maybe I'm smoking crack, but it did.
The Wedding Date wasn't that great. It was one of those movies that was maybe worth watching once then never thinking about again. It's the type of movie that is highly unlikely to ever happen in real life.

Mon Cheri

Okay, so I haven't ranted about my sweetie in a while and I'm having withdrawls. ::Laughs:: He is so good to me..

--We went out Friday night with my aunt, my sister and her beau. We had tickets to do some spookwalks at the Haunted Castle of Muskogee and we've done it for the past like 5 years. It was kinda lame this year, and trying to limp around in my stinking walking boot was interesting. Anywho, he'd never been to any kind of spookwalks before, so I dragged him along. It probably won't be the last one I drag him to either, ::evil grin::. We had fun.

--After going back to his apartment I had some major issues with some things, the really loud thunderstorms not helping much (I don't do well in thunderstorms at night), and cried hard (you know the kind that makes your nose run consistently, gives you strange hiccup like things and makes your eyes all sorts of puffy the next day?) until about 5:30am. We had gone to bed and he had fallen asleep at about 3:40am while I was crying. I wasn't upset about that though because I just wanted him to sleep and not have to suffer through my issues until wee hours of the morning. I got out of bed and went in his living room to just sit on the floor by his balcony to listen to and watch the rain (it had become rain for a little while, and I actually love the rain. I just don't do well in thunderstorms at night), it helped soothe me just a little (his balcony doors are the only real windows that you can sit next to in his apartment). Then at about 4:30am he came out of his bedroom looking for me, brought his pillow and blanket, and cuddled up next to me on the floor. He tried talking to me first, but I wasn't much responsive. Then he tried hinting at me that he wanted me to scoot closer to him so that he could actually hold me (the way I was sitting, he couldn't do so until I moved first), but I still wasn't much responsive. Then he looked at me real seriously, and said, "Do you just need to be alone?" in a sort of pained tone, like the actual thought of leaving me out in his living room, crying, would hurt him...I just cried and cried and hugged him so tightly...He started comforting me, holding me, and telling me that no matter what happened, we would work things out together and that he wanted to be sure I knew he was here for me no matter the complications.

--So that sort-of brings me to a little thing he did Sunday night (the night we went to Serenity, just to keep things straight). I have been just letting him go to bed and then I join him when I start getting sleepy because he goes to bed early to go to work at 6am. **Let me make a note here, because I'm not sure if I've mentioned this little tid-bit of information about my love before: He talks to me in his sleep. He goes to the bathroom, drinks, eats and god knows what else he does while he is asleep.** Well, I had just gotten comfortable when he sat up for no reason, not looking in my direction. I asked him if he was doing okay so he actually turned towards me. He settled down again, said, "I'm doing okay. How are you doing, baby?" Then he started to cuddle up real close to me while I replied, "I'm doing good," and he responded, "Well that is all that matters," then fell silent again, still cuddling me. I swear he was asleep during this conversation. When I told him the next morning he thought it was too cheesy for him to have actually said and thought I was making it up at first. Awww! He even cares about me while he is off somewhere in dream land. :oD

Monday, October 03, 2005


Okay, so I went and saw the movie last night and it was really good. It stuck with the way the series was, and was pretty much like two episodes or something. Big difference was the CG, they cleaned them up and made them look more realistic. So here are my quotes:

Kaylee: I ain't had nuthin' in my nethers that don't run on batteries!
Mal: Whoa! I don't wanna hear anymore!
Jayne: I wouldn't mind hearin' more *sly grin*
River: *Said seriously to Simon* Put a bullet in me...
*Said while smiling* Bullet in the brain pan, Squish!
Wash: I am like a leaf in the wind, see how I float!
Simon: The one thing I regret out of all this is not being with you...
Kaylee: You mean to say sex?
Simon: *Nods* I mean to say...
Kaylee: *Elated smile* Fuck this! *Raises gun* I'm gonna live!
Mal: You ready to get back to civilization?
Inara: I....I don't know...
Mal: Good answer.
River: *Points at a man trying to secretly pull out his gun*
Zoe: You know the definition of a hero? *Puts her gun against his face* It's someone who gets people killed...look it up sometime.

Now that I got that out of the way, if you have seen the movie, here is my rant. (Reviews and ratings, if you're interested, on
--Why was Book (Shepard) on the planet and not on the ship? I don't recall them dropping him off anywhere in the series, did I miss something? And I was okay with his death. It came as a surprize, and I almost cried, but he wasn't really a major major character.
--WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH KILLING WASH?!?! Oh my god, I cried and cried! I felt so bad for Zoe...and the second in command, gotta keep trucking for the sake of the war like additude just made it worse. If I remember correctly, one of the last major conversations Zoe and Wash had before the end of the series was the possibility of them getting pregnant. Zoe wanted to, Wash didn't. So...are they going to start up the series again, and if they do, are they going to make Zoe pregnant?
