You Are Olive Green
You are the most real of all the green shades. You’re always true to yourself.
For you, authenticity and honesty are very important… both in others and yourself.
You are grounded and secure. It takes a lot to shake you.
People see you as dependable, probably the most dependable person they know.
|You Are Animal|
A complete lunatic, you’re operating on 100% animal instincts.
You thrive on uncontrolled energy, and you’re downright scary.
But you sure can beat a good drum.
Yesterday I was kermit though.

Seven people to tag: I’m not really sure there is anyone left. 🙁
Blonde posted something interesting and I decided I was intrigued to know how I came out. I’ve keyed my name into the Johari window thing and I would appreciate any comments.
You Are Scary
You even scare scary people sometimes!

Ten years ago
I had just gone into the third year of Secondary School. I was hanging out with Jo, Gemma and Debbie, and we were pretty inseparable. We were worrying about normal school things, sniggering about boys(!), worrying about GCSE choices and generally being worry-free teenagers.
Five years ago
I’d been selling cars since January and was in my second job which was just fantastic. I really enjoyed working in the dealership but was beginning to think about where I wanted to go next. I had no specific plans for the future. Within the next month I’d decide that I wanted to go to university and set about applying. Not the easiest thing to do in 3 weeks from having not considered it at all.
One year ago
A year ago I had just been interviewed for the job with SCM and was stewing about the results. In fact I discovered that I was being offered the job a month today, as in October 30. I had been working in Manchester in a job that really wasn’t working out and it had taken me months to decide that I was going to apply for the SCM job. I was staying with the nuns a year ago, so I could apply for the job. I found out that I got the job on the 30th, then the madness started. Having only moved to Manchester in July, I then found I had to move back and I started work within the month. It was brilliant and scary at the same time.
Five yummy things
Jenn and Zac’s cooking (I’m staying with them this weekend), a good meal with friends (pretty much regardless of the content), Spinach and Paneer curry, home-made chocolate brownies and (atm) Chai.
Five songs I know by heart
I only tend to know songs when I’m singing along, like Blonde. I guess I know things like
Dancing Queen – it’s played everywhere from cheese nights to work. It’s great.
El Tango de Roxanne – Moulin Rouge Soundtrack
Come What May – also from Moulin Rouge. Well, I probably know the whole soundtrack quite well. It was an important part of my time at university.
Bohemian Rapsody – just the number of places and occasions we’ve ended up singing it!
Feeling Good – Nina Simone or Muse
Five things I would do with a lot of money
Pay of my (student) debts, invest/save some, give some to charity, get an extension for my mum’s house and give myself an allowance so I don’t have to struggle financially. Boring but true. If you wish to give me lots of money, it would be gratefully received.
Five places I would escape to
Yosemite National Park in California, Dartmoor, a secluded beach, a good friend’s house or the convent (even though that is the house of a number of good friends).
Five things I would never wear
A mission T-Shirt/sweatshirt type thing for an organisation I don’t agree with, Shoes that don’t fit, Nike, Gap, excessive amounts of gold jewellery.
Five favourite TV shows
I don’t have a telly, so I’m a bit behind the times but…
Dead Ringers, Have I got News for You, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, The Beiderbecke Connection, (I’ll come back to the last one)
Five things I enjoy doing
Hitting a deadline before schedule, getting involved in work that really interests me (i.e. most of it professionally), spending time with friends, watching films and at the moment I’m enjoying knitting.
My collection of bears, the playdough stuff given to me anonymously by Pants, my computer (how sad am i?). Can’t think what else. I like toys though.
Jo needs his head read (really – no wonder I was having problems)
Jo needs vendors
Jo needs 2b funky (you mean I’m not?)
Jo needs your help (always…)
Jo needs someone to watch him dance (him again)
Jo needs a loving family (I thought mine was okay but…)
Jo needs a 17″ Powerbook (If you’re offering I wouldn’t say no!)
Jo needs to be brought back (from where)
Jo needs to get ready to photograph in Haiti (I’m sure I can get ready for that)
Jo needs to present a coat of arms
and finally, the most appropriate:
Jo needs to update her page.
Apparently ‘Never Conforming’ doesn’t need anything.

BTW, my flight has been booked for my trip to Jerusalem. I still can’t believe it’s happening but I’ll make sure to tell you all about it when I get back.
|You scored as Emergent/Postmodern. You are Emergent/Postmodern in your theology. You feel alienated from older forms of church, you don’t think they connect to modern culture very well. No one knows the whole truth about God, and we have much to learn from each other, and so learning takes place in dialogue. Evangelism should take place in relationships rather than through crusades and altar-calls. People are interested in spirituality and want to ask questions, so the church should help them to do this.
Ok, Ian, I see why you wanted me back – I’ve missed being tagged at least three times. I’m going to have to cheat a little and combine the posts so they are all together. I’ll try and catch up with everyone’s blogs at some point soon. Sorry.

3. Last movie I watched
Star Wars Episode III
4. Five movies that mean a lot to me
Strictly Ballroom – It’s worth it just to hear my grandparents trying to make us ‘Show [them our] Paso Doble’
Moulin Rouge – If you’ve never heard Nat, Jenn and I yelling along to El Tango de Roxanne then you’re very fortunate but it is definitely a good thing from my time at uni.
The Incredibles – It’s just such a great film and I got it by trading in some of my old and unwanted DVDs, so it was free.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show – It reminds me of making one of my (male) uni friends a corset for our trip to the theatre to see the show.
Pirates of the Caribbean – It’s just such complete escapism!

I’ll come back to this later…
I’ve just come back from a good night with good friends and although I have a 9am lecture, I’m too excited and generally high to get to sleep, so thought I would take up Tractor Girl’s challenge.
Total Volume of music on your computer:
Which computer? Between the two, I must have about 10GB music.
The last album you purchased was:
Well, the newest album I have is Kasabian’s new one but I didn’t buy it. I don’t think I’ve bought an album in about 4 years!
Song Playing right now:
Radio 4 – not that it’s a song but it was playing Iraqi music.
Seven songs you’ve been listening to a lot recently, from several genres:
Fearless – The Bravery (It’s on Kerrang! lots)
Early One Morning/Young Collins – Jim Moray (It’s often on in the office)
In the Waiting Line – Zero 7 (from the Garden State soundtrack – great film)
Superman – Stereophonics (Kerrang again)
Sailing By – I don’t know who it’s by but it is always a sign that I need more sleep.
Little Sister – Queens of the Stone Age (Kerrang yet again)
The National Anthem – It’s after sailing by and before I often go to sleep.
Enough different styles covered?
