It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Who is this Wonderful Woman?? (updated with posting instructions)

If this hasn’t hit 90% of the Mommy-blogosphere within 24 hours, I will be ASTOUNDED.

I will not tell you how much of myself I heard in this…

[For those of you who want this in your blog, but don’t know how:

1. Go to your dashboard. Get into the Edit screen.
This is important. You can’t do this from the Compose screen.

2. Open another tab, go to the YouTube video.

3. To the right of the video, you should see two SMALL boxes, one labeled “URL” and one labeled “embed”. You want “embed”.

4. Copy the code from inside the embed box, and paste it into your Edit screen.
5. Save as usual.

Done. That’s all there is to it. Good luck!]

My Latte Life

Hello! It’s Friday, and I’m tired and looking forward to the weekend, so, for your entertainment, my Latte Personality. It’s about 60% accurate, I’m figuring…

What Your Latte Says About You

You are easygoing and pretty simple to please. You don’t put up a fuss… ever.

You can be quite silly at times, but you know when to buckle down and be serious.

You have a good deal of energy, but you pace yourself. You never burn out too fast.

You have a healthy relationship with caffeine. You’re definitely not dependent on it.

You are responsible, mature, and truly an adult. You’re occasionally playful, but you find it hard to be carefree.

You are complex and philosophical, but you are never arrogant.

What Does Your Latte Say About You?

I’m not much with the silly, though I do mischief pretty well; do NOT have a good deal of energy – which is why, yes, I do pace myself well; second-last one (responsible, mature, playful, not carefree) is dead on, I think; and complex and philosophical, yes; the less flattering adjectives? Well, it reminds me of that game…

You know the game? The one where someone throws out an adjective, then you take turns coming up with increasingly less flattering variants?

“I’m curious; she’s nosy, they’re intrusive.”
“I’m organized; he’s anal; they’re obsessive-compulsive.”
“I’m relaxed; she’s laissez-faire; they’re inert.”

That game? It can be a lot of fun. (Right Jen and Sam?? Sam is particularly skilled at it.)

Well… You can see why it came to mind. I’m confident, you see.
