The green linen medieval dress thing is hemmed. Took longer than it should have, really. It is Friday night, and I am bored. Need to sew more, so probably will.

That is all.


Edit: Because I am bored, you all get a quiz I've seen making the rounds. i can haz gud english? (yes, according to this quiz and my perfect score on the verbal SAT portion four years ago, I can. *brags*) Ok, back to being bored.

We hope you like being fluffy.

Your result for The Personality Defect Test...Sociopath

You are the Sociopath! As a result of your cold, calculating rationality, your introversion (and ability to keep quiet), your brutality, and your arrogance, you would make a very cunning serial killer. You are confident and capable of social interaction, but you prefer the silence of dead bodies to the loud, twittering nitwits you normally encounter in your daily life. You care very little for the feelings of others, possibly because you are not a very emotional person. You are also very calculating and intelligent, making you a perfect criminal mastermind. Also, you are a very arrogant person, tending to see yourself as better than others, providing you with a strong ability to perceive others as weak little animals, so tiny and small. You take great pleasure in the misery of others, and there is nothing sweeter to you than the sweet glory of using someone else's shattered failure to project yourself to success. Except sugar. That just may be sweeter. In short, your personality defect is the fact that you could easily be a sociopath, because you are calculating, unemotional, brutal, and arrogant. Please don't kill me for writing mean things about you! I have a 101 mile-long knife! Don't make me use it!


To put it less negatively:
1. You are more RATIONAL than intuitive.
2. You are more INTROVERTED than extroverted.
3. You are more BRUTAL than gentle.
4. You are more ARROGANT than humble.


Compatibility: Your exact opposite is the Hippie.Other personalities you would probably get along with are the Spiteful Loner, the Smartass, and the Capitalist Pig.

Don't get me wrong, I fully appreciate being off from school for months and becoming a part time member of the workforce...but I hate summer weather. Yahoo weather says it's 91 but feels like 98, and it really isn't lying today.

Yesterday I finally got myself over to Joann fabrics and bought patterns, mostly for modern dresses. I always need more dresses. And, well, okay, some of them are only modern in the sense of "was in style in the past 60 years or less" but that's more modern than my usual sewing endeavors, and if I'd wear it randomly in public, it qualifies as "modern." :D (Of course, after buying 8 patterns for 1.99 each, a flyer was shoved into my bag about how, in a couple weeks, those same patterns will be 2 for $3...)

Made most of a skirt from one of those patterns last night, except for putting in the zipper, as I haven't got one. Zippers are not the kind of thing I have "just laying around" in my mass of sewing things. Hemp cord, yes; zippers, no.

Oh, and since I was home (again!) today (technically yesterday!), this time to see my little sis in her middle school muscial, I managed to do some sewing this afternoon. Took almost four hours, I think, but I finished sewing the flounce on the block-print petticoat, and so it is DONE! (And there was much rejoicing.)

Did some embroidery on the Pocket on the train ride home, and it's reeeally close to having the embroidery done...just a few more hours should do it. Then I can sew it together, and I'll have something done for Bastille Day! And just in case I run out of things to do (I might, actually; I have a record-breaking ONE final paper due this semester [plus 3 finals, okay, but still], so I might end up with a decent amount of time to sew), I brought up Hat Stuff. Also for Bastille Day.

Dear [personal profile] ladyneferankh

I don't really know how to tell you this, but our romance is over. I think I realized it last year with George Bush and his wife and I saw you sit on my avocado plant. I'm sure you're scarred enough to understand the middle east. I'm returning the pictures from LA to you, but I'll keep your photo as a memory. You should also know that I never will forget a passionate interest for mice.

Good luck on your short-term leave from jail,

Oh, and I actually did some sewing over the weekend, as I was home to see a show.
Sewing! )

My Personality
Openness to Experience
You are poised, confident, and clear-thinking when stressed, however you are sensitive about what others think of you. Your concern about rejection and ridicule cause you to feel shy and uncomfortable around others. You are easily embarrassed and often feel ashamed. Your fears that others will criticize or make fun of you are exaggerated and unrealistic, but your awkwardness and discomfort may make these fears a self-fulfilling prophecy. People generally perceive you as distant and reserved, and you do not usually reach out to others. You tend not to express your emotions openly and are sometimes not even aware of your own feelings. You are willing to take credit for good things that you do but you don't often talk yourself up much, however you believe that a certain amount of deception in social relationships is necessary. You are guarded in new relationships and less willing to openly reveal the whole truth about yourself. You are well-organized and like to live according to routines and schedules. Often you will keep lists and make plans.

Stolen from...well, you know who you are. :)

What kind of a Founding Father would you be?

A good blend of all great things - Fantastic! You are a very balanced, well-rounded person. You could do anything you set your mind to. Just like Benjamin Franklin, you're known to be a bit strange or even eccentric, but you are also wise and generally very charismatic. You like to stop and think about things, like to surround yourself with intellectual pursuits and lofty dreams, but you are also down-to-earth when it comes to other things. You are a dabbler: that is, you try a lot of new things. Risks don't seem to frighten you, as long as they are well thought-out first. You like to have theories and ideas, but you are never detatched. People generally see you as one to be admired. It is very difficult to get you really, really angry. This is good because, when you do get angry at someone, you tend to stay angry for a very long time. You should probably keep at what you're doing if this is all the case; but just be careful not to let it all go to your head! Be sure to use those abilities!

Your Score: Glamorous Soul

35% Flamboyance, 48% Originality, 67% Deliberateness, 56% Sexiness

[Tasteful Original Deliberate Sexy]

You choose your outfits carefully according to many criteria. You don't like looking cheap, dull or random and you go to great lengths to avoid this. You are successful, too. People admire your taste and sex appeal. Many try to imitate you but not many can recreate your unique style. Sometimes, however, they find you too intimidating to approach. If you don't wear retro style yet, perhaps you should consider it. It would become greatly your sexy, mysterious self.

The opposite style from yours is Fashion Enemy [Flamboyant Conventional Random Prissy].
