Your result for The Which Shakespeare Play Are You? Test...


You scored 49% = Tragic, 34% = Comic, 30% = Romantic, 40% = Historic

You are Macbeth! A supposed retelling of the true story of King Macbeth of Scotland, Macbeth is one of Shakespeare's bloodiest plays. Macbeth, after hearing the prophesy of three witches, believes he will be named king of Scotland. However, this line of thinking eventually leads Macbeth down a horrible road of blood and death as he fights first to gain, and then to keep hold of the crown. Believing the play to be cursed, many actors will not even say the name of the play inside of a theater unless it is being performed and refer to it simply as "The Scottish Play". But you probably don't care about some stupid old curse. As Macbeth you most likely don't take warnings too well and you are so headstrong that you can't take good advice when it comes your way, even if it is for your own good. But being Macbeth isn't all bad. You are most likely a man (or woman) of action. People probably like you because you are good at thinking on your feet and making quick decisions. But be careful, as your rash behavior may also get you in to trouble along the way.

You are The Wheel of Fortune

Good fortune and happiness but sometimes a species of
intoxication with success

The Wheel of Fortune is all about big things, luck, change, fortune. Almost always good fortune. You are lucky in all things that you do and happy with the things that come to you. Be careful that success does not go to your head however. Sometimes luck can change.

In 2008, ariadne3 resolves to...
Drink four glasses of sca every day.
Start an art fund.
Go to the chickens every month.
Connect with my inner ocf.
Find a new beer.
Buy new eccentricities.

Get your own New Year's Resolutions:

I tried the 12 days meme again to see if I'd get anything new, 'cause [ profile] corvideye's was way cooler than mine, and noticed the link for new year's resolutions at the bottom.
I'm satisfied. This is GREAT. It's a good thing I wasn't drinking any SCA at the time, or it would certainly be all over my computer, and we don't need that again, now do we?

Though, I think the chickens would object if they were only gone to once a month. They get hungry. They'd let themselves out. I wouldn't have any kale left.

I wonder if I could knit new eccentricities? I could certainly try.
ariadne3: (knit ammonite)
But I saw this in [ profile] p1kap1ka's journal and thought it'd be amusing. It was.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, ariadne3 sent to me...
Twelve corvideyes drumming
Eleven meowses piping
Ten ctseawas a-leaping
Nine shiningmoons biking
Eight kareinas a-reading
Seven sidhefires a-teaching
Six clemtaurs a-knitting
Five aelfgyfu-u-u-us
Four tattoos
Three chickens
Two eccentricities
...and a sca in a hrothgar1.

And really, only two eccentricities? I think not.

Your result for Howard Gardner's Eight Types of Intelligence Test...


31% Logical, 47% Spatial, 22% Linguistic, 29% Intrapersonal, 6% Interpersonal, 18% Musical, 37% Bodily-Kinesthetic and 47% Naturalistic!

"This area has to do with vision and spatial judgment. People with strong visual-spatial intelligence are typically very good at visualizing and mentally manipulating objects. They have a strong visual memory and are often artistically inclined. Those with visual-spatial intelligence also generally have a very good sense of direction and may also have very good hand-eye coordination, although this is normally seen as a characteristic of the bodily-kinesthetic intelligence.

Careers which suit those with this intelligence include artists, engineers, and architects." (Wikipedia)

They also talk of our being guilty of injustice, and their being the victims of an unjustifiable war. Brandy, and Tom got increasingly close-mouthed and sour. Although a certain sense of tripartite society survived down to Christian times, the three classes described in the Eddic poem "Rigdthula" bear little resemblance to Dumezil's three. It is often argued, and still oftener thought, that none but bad men would desire to weaken these salutary beliefs; and there can be nothing wrong, it is thought, in restraining bad men, and prohibiting what only such men would wish to practice. At its nearest point the wall was little more than one league from the City, and that was south-eastward. When he saw Jack Hare jump towards the fire, and the Practical Man brandishing the toasting-fork, Sir Isaac grabbed the strings of gravitational force that bound Jack to his destiny and PULLED--- That's a seventy-four gun privateer, besides. To honour a group of British nobles, treacherously slain at a conference by Hengist's guards, Aurelius decides to erect a great monument near Amesbury. That being so, he did not chortle when he went upstairs. Let stand. This ensures that when the garbage collector runs, it has complete access to the memory in the heap and can perform its tasks safely without the threat of being preempted by another thread. And then you may begin to laugh. The data are stored in Column 1 and renamed "Age." Pull your hand back. I don't remember that any secrets were revealed to me, nor do I remember any avid curiosity on my part to learn something I wasn't supposed to--perhaps I was too young to know what to listen for. You don't remember how awful it is being normal. Highlight the desired state tax table and press Enter. Abraham had now reached a ripe old age, and the LORD had blessed him in every way. This doesn't alter either string, any more than 2+3 alters either 2 or 3. And I will say firmly that it is the author who says, "One does feel," who is really an egoist; and the author who says, "I believe," who is not an egoist. The police have agreed to let us show this video. She was particularly fond of Union Maj. Joseph Willard, some years her senior, who courted her amid the competitive field of Blue and Gray. And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his two womanservants, and his eleven sons, and passed over the ford Jabbok. Nonetheless I am surprised to see the amount my week's worth of toil has actually brought me. "How Noble," the Reverend Mother sneered. For example, almond is neutral and sweet, so it only acts on the lungs; wheat bran is cool and sweet, so it only acts on the stomach; kelp is cold and salty, so it only acts on the stomach. The Abilities entry tells you which abilities aremost important for a character of that class. Let's look at the structure of an atom of the element helium (He), the "lighter-than-air" gas used to make party balloons rise (Figure 2.5).Top with pecans, orange peel and, if desired, additional nutmeg. The same class of workmanship applied in the wrong instance, e.g. when making a boring head, a milling spindle, or some similar piece of high class toolmaking, will produce something compleatly useless. Later, when I was much older, I realized that it was no accident that my mother left us in November. For example, in the introduction we described the custom of the Dinka and Nuer tribes of the Sudan, who extract several of the permanent front teeth of their children -- a painful procedure, done with a fish hook.

My pirate name is:

Bloody Jenny Bonney

Every pirate lives for something different. For some, it's the open sea. For others (the masochists), it's the food. For you, it's definitely the fighting. You can be a little bit unpredictable, but a pirate's life is far from full of certainties, so that fits in pretty well. Arr!

Whoa. This is...more accurate that I expected.

Your result for The Perception Personality Image Test...

NBPC - The Daydreamer

Nature, Background, Big Picture, and Color

You perceive the world with particular attention to nature. You focus on the hidden treasures of life (the background) and how that fits into the larger picture. You are also particularly drawn towards the colors around you. Because of the value you place on nature, you tend to find comfort in more subdued settings and find energy in solitude. You like to ponder ideas and imagine the many possibilities of your life without worrying about the details or specifics. You are in tune with all that is around you and understand your life as part of a larger whole. You are a down-to-earth person who enjoys going with the flow.

Golly, which one?
Well, there's "Eugene female model #4" with the large wool sweater, wool socks, leggings, skirt and sensible shoes.
There's "proto-teacher" with the jumper, aforementioned leggings, stripedy shirt and socks that don't match the outfit but do match each other.
There's "I wish I was historical" with the embroidered peplos, neato leather hat with veil, tooled belt, nice fibulae and better posture than normal.
Then there's "school byke" with the vest, slacks, tuck-in shirt, stern braid and again, sensible shoes.
