Are We Having Fun Yet?

The house I lived in from first through fifth grade in town

I've lived in a lot of different houses and places in Indiana growing up and now growing old, and lived in one place in Tennessee as a toddler. I don't think that I will ever live outside of Indiana again, but you never know. (My husband is a dyed-in-the-wool Hoosier who once said he would not cross her borders--but he did--so there you go.) One thing I've found out: I'm not much of a city girl. Put me in boots and jeans and set me down in the country.

For a bit of lightheartedness because there is so much gloom (the Indiana white-gray skies are upon us) and doom (lots of troubles with those around me,) I've been taking some of the fun tests. I see that Pam and Peg are also Blue Christmas tree people--yes, I love the movie, It's a Wonderful Life (and sometimes wonder if I'm close to getting saved by Clarence, too.)I dislike conflict. These tests, while meant for fun, have grains of truth in them. If you answer honestly, it really does peg you on points of your personality.

My husband is working on Christmas eve and Christmas day, so while he is doing that, I'm relaxing in the next few days and doing some end-of-the-year evaluations and goal-setting. Not sure if this helps, but surely it doesn't hoirt. Cara Putnam did the What City Should You Live In? test, too.

Here you go--try these. What city should you live in? I suppose if I HAD to live in a city (or visit another one, though Savannah, Georgia is my favorite city) Paris would be all right. I do like art and fashions and love food (and the best food I ever ate was in Las Vegas at a French restaurant!)

You Belong in Paris

Stylish and expressive, you were meant for Paris.
The art, the fashion, the wine!
Whether you're enjoying the cafe life or a beautiful park...
You'll love living in the most chic place on earth.

And I must be in a Paris mood because I also should be spending Christmas there!

You Should Spend the Holidays In

France - where "Pere Noel" fills your shoes full of toes

And while I'm in a fashionable mood, here's my new funky hair color! ORANGE

Your Hair Should Be Orange

Expressive, deep, and one of a kind.
You pull off "weird" well - hardly anyone notices.

And oddly enough, French is the language I should learn. Hmmm. I do like creme brulee the best of allllllll desserts!

You Should Learn French

C'est super! You appreciate the finer things in life... wine, art, cheese, love affairs.
You are definitely a Parisian at heart. You just need your tongue to catch up...

Finally, my favorite book right now is Kissing Adrien by Siri L. Mitchell set where?? That's right. In Paris. Ok, maybe I'll look into a French language course...

That's hillarious. Hmm, methinks Chris should take you to Paris for a romantic get-away. :-)

Interesting quizzes/tests, Chrystal! Apparently I should be living in Paris (like you), although I think I'd really enjoy living in San Antonio.

Secondly, I should be spending Christmas in Ireland. I'll second that!

Next, looks like my hair should be white. Hmm, how different is that from gray?

Finally, I need to learn Chinese! How weird is that?

I belong in Rome. I totally agree with that.

I should spend holidays in Denmark ... hmmmmmmm ... not sure about that.

My funky hair color should be pink. Well, okay. Maybe.

And the language I should learn is Spanish. But I don't agree with the reasons they listed. Not me at all. I would love to learn Italian because it's a beautiful language.

This was fun!

I belong in Rome learning Japanese with pink hair. Well, the Rome part is right. Actually, I think I'd prefer Florence.
