No, not a real test, just something for fun.

A personality test.

Turns out I’m of the INFJ type personality.

Not bad as personalities go, and reading through all the things they have to say about what I am, things are quite a bit clearer that they might have been a while ago.

Here’s the link if you feel like going down that road yourself…

Back to my so-called life now.

Well, I’m still alive. Even if a bit tearful – just finished the 6th Harry Potter book. And even though I’ve read it many times before, seen the movies a few times, I always cry. Just one of those things. Probably a bit more tearful because I’m getting very worried about my future.

At least I’ve come up with a relatively easy way to kick the bucket. I’ll not elucidate – just now the powers that be gets to read my stuff and they will know exactly what my plans were should the time come. And that’s just what I want to avoid. Not that I will definitely go ahead with it, but I like to keep my options open – as my INFJ type tells me – I like order, abhor chaos and uncertainty.

Mr P. Well, Mr P is still on the outskirts. Taking things slowly he says. Feels to me like, if he goes any slower, he’ll be moving backwards, but hey. We each face our decisions in our own way, and this is his. Not everybody has the intuition I have – my choice is already made – he just needs to reach that point. I’ll just have to bite my teeth and let him get on with it. As they say – anything worth having is worth waiting for. Just hope I don’t have to wait too long – I’m not so good with waiting. But, we still talk, albeit a bit less than we did, and the supper was a success. At least, I thought so. They each had second helpings of the food I made, so even if the company was not all that good, at least the food was edible πŸ˜‰ I’m hoping he will come around tomorrow, and we can spend another pleasant evening just parking off and being.

Had a visit from the ex again this afternoon – every time I see him he’s more of a stranger to me. Tells me, because money is getting tight, he’s moving to a farm somewhere to the other side of the province and wifey will stay with her sister. Saves him money, and he’s rid of the wife for weeks on end. And so it begins. The likely demise of yet another marriage. Or, maybe they will be happier if they’re not together 24/7. Don’t know, don’t really care. As long as he leaves me the hell alone!

So, here I am, alone yet again on a Saturday evening. But, as always, in the good company of tunes from way back when. Think I’ll go run a bath and start the Deathly Hallows – always good company, a book! They never think funny of you, or talk back. They just let you read them. They are just there. Leaving you be. Not laughing when you cry at the sad parts, or look at you funny when you laugh out loud at the funny things, or shush you when you get exited. In reading these last few words, I’m realising that, maybe, I should just give up people completely and immerse myself in the written word. Will definitely be easier on my psyche!

And, on that note, let me leave you with the following song. And a few jokes…


Things That Took Me Fifty Years To Learn!!

1.) Never under any circumstances take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

2.) If you have to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be “meetings”.

3.) There is a very fine line between “hobby” and “mental illness”.

4.) People who want to share their religious veiws with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

5.) And when God, who created the entire universe with all of its glories, decides to deliver a message to humanity, He WILL NOT use, as His messenger, a person on cable TV with a bad hairstyle.

6.) You should not confuse your career with your life.

7.) No matter what happens… somebody will find a way to take it too seriously.

8.) When trouble arises & things look bad, there is always one individual who perceives a solution & is willing to take command. Very often, that person is crazy.

9.) Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance.

10.) A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person.

11.) Never lick a steak knife.

12.) Take out the fortune before you eat the cookie.

13.) “The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above average drivers.

14.) You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she’s pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.

15.) Your REAL friends still love you anyway.

  1. Oh dear. In spite of the valuable tips at the end, I’d say you really are glum. Sometimes, when things look tough, it helps to remember those who lived through Belsen and similar, survived somehow, and went on to long and happy lives. Now, THAT took some doing!

    • It’s strange that I can’t seem to lift my current state of doldrums Col. I don’t like feeling like this. But this job thing is killing me slowly but surely.
      How do you fight an enemy that’s faceless, non-corporeal? if I could see the bastard, at least I could do something about it. Instead, I’m fighting prejudice and blindness with no weapons to hand,
      Sure, I’m not the only one battling, I’m not the first, nor the last, but it’s getting me deeper in the mire than I feel comfortable being.

      • I can well understand that. The whole situation sucks. Talk about a lose/lose policy. Because the best people aren’t used in the economy, it goes downhill, which means less and less opportunities for everyone.

  2. Hello you
    Sorry i haven’t been around
    Been quite poorly
    I’m fed up with Doctors not being right
    My complaints they just ignore
    Got to write more which gets me down
    Because i want my time to share
    And let that special person know
    I’m there
    Have a beautiful weekend
    ║║╔═╦╦╦═╗*. . *
    β•‘β•šβ•£β•‘β•‘β•‘β•‘β•©β•£* Danielβ€’*´¨`*β€’

    • Hey Mr D.
      I’ve missed you. Sorry the stupid doctors can’t seem to get it right. They seem to be a useless lot for the most part.
      Thanks for being there – l could use a friend tonight.
      Sleep well my friend…

    • I slept a lot this weekend – and eventually managed to do something with the tower of clean clothes I had πŸ˜‰
      Wait you say – looks like I will have to do just that…

  3. I liked #8. And, here, there is a version of #15, which says something to the effect that your real friends will help you bury the body… I’m a wee bit concerned about your finding a way to kick the bucket – over here in the States that means suicide. I sure hope you’re not thinking along lines like that, Chickpea. It’s been a damn grim month, but it always gets better. P

    • It means exactly the same here as it does there P. I just can’t seem to see further than that at the moment. Something out there is just ganging up on me and I can’t fight it anymore. and it’s not just been a grim month, it’s been a grim two years. Just don’t know how much longer I can continue to fight this endless battle.

  4. Love #14. My sister is great at opening her mouth and putting her foot in it in this regard. πŸ˜€ Hope the weekend is turning out better than expected. xx

    • It once happened to me. This random chick asks me when am I due? I asked her due what? She reckons, the baby. I was not impressed πŸ˜‰
      The weekend, well. Neither worse, nor better – just the same as always. Then again, this too shall pass I suppose. Eventually.
      I’m sure you had a good one what with all the celebrations and mom visiting and all πŸ˜‰

  5. I ball my eyes out at the end of that book all the time. It’s like with Lion King, I ball my eyes out every time when Mufasa dies even though I’ve seen it a million times. I can’t explain it.
    Hope Mr P catches a wake up soon!

    • Mr P will do what he must when he has to. some things just can’t be forced. I’ll wait patiently – not as if I have all that much else to do is there πŸ˜‰
      I’ve just passed the Dobby incident – not my finest moment! But the tears are good to some extent I suppose.

      • Hey, J, you cannot exit just yet. You asked for a man who would see beyond your sexy surface and it looks as though you got one. Perhaps Mr. P is trying to show you it’s not all about your sexy surface – I dunno, but I do know one of your prayers has been answered in its own way in its own time. In truth, you’ve been through much worse. You’re just tired of the battle. I understand and just ask that you take a week or so or as much as you can to remember the good; to focus on the good. P

      • Thanks P. I’m so up in the air about everything, nothing in the pipeline, just dread and misery and uncertainties.
        You’re right about Mr P – he’s not scared of me, not just worried about dipping the wick, but he also never visits, because he’s taking it slowly. To me it feels as if he does not really want to tell me to just shove off, but rather trying to keep the peace and not hurt me. And that’s even more hurtful than an outright “F off” would be.
        The rest – yes, I know there are good things too. My kids would be devastated, but I just can’t see the light yet I have to be honest. Every month it just gets worse and worse and I have to wonder, WHY?

  6. I’m going to do that test. Had a look the other day and haven’t had enough spare minutes. Time has shrunk, or am I getting slower?
    I love those wisdoms, especially No. 5 πŸ™‚

    • It’s such a cool test – actually makes sense all the things they say – sort of spreads you out so you can look at everything from an informed perspective πŸ™‚
      I think time becomes more of a blur as you get older πŸ˜‰
