Flavour of the Month meme....

Travis (Trav's Thoughts) posted this recently and rather than tag anyone said you could have a go if you felt like it, then Jo Beaufoix tagged me for it, so here goes.

1. Mention the person who tagged you and create a link back to them.
2. Copy-paste the traits for all the twelve months (see below).
3. Pick your month of birth (see below).
4. Highlight the traits that apply to you.
5. Tag 12 people and let them know by visiting their blogs and leaving a comment for them.
6. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve done it!

Get yourself a cup of tea/coffee this could take some time.....

I was born in November.

Has a lot of ideas: I do but I don't always act on them. Some are good, some are bad and some are just plain daft!

Difficult to fathom: I think this may be true because MWM keeps saying he'll never understand me completely even after 35 years together.

Thinks forward: Definitely but sometimes that can be hazardous because I imagine all the things that can go wrong so it gets me in a tizzy.

Unique and brilliant: Well I don't want to blow my own trumpet but.....

Extraordinary ideas: Probably MWM often says "only you could think of something like that!"

Sharp thinking: Definitely except on a Sunday when I usually have a hangover!

Fine and strong clairvoyance: Oh yes, I can read minds!

Can become good doctors: I've not had any medical training but I can usually give a good diagnosis, probably because of all the reading I've done looking up symptoms!

Dynamic in personality: Mmmm depends how tired I am.

Secretive: Not at all, I'll tell anyone who cares to listen my life story.

Inquisitive: Too much so, if I was a cat I'd have been dead by now from curiosity.

Knows how to dig secrets: I've never had to dig for secrets, people automatically tell me theirs. Email me now!

Always thinking: I find it very difficult to let my mind go blank................................ where was I?

Less talkative but amiable: I'd rather listen than talk for sure.

Brave and generous. Patient: I like to think I'm all of those but you'd have to ask my family and friends. Did I tell you I'm modest? ((wink))

Stubborn and hard-hearted: Stubborn I can definitely be but hard-hearted no certainly not, I'm as soft as butter.

If there is a will, there is a way: Determined :Never give up: Definitely all three apply to me.

Hardly becomes angry unless provoked: It takes a lot to rile me, the only exception is anything to do with children being hurt. I make a better friend than enemy though.

Loves to be alone: Totally wrong! I hate being alone. If I'm alone in the house I have to have the radio/television on in every room for company.

Thinks differently from others: I don't think so, though I sometimes expect others to think the say way as me.

Sharp-minded: Depends on how much I've had to drink!

Motivates oneself: Usually, except when it comes to exercise.

Does not appreciate praises: Totally wrong I definitely do appreciate praises.

High-spirited: Can be - see Sharp-minded.

Well-built and tough: I don't want to discuss my weight thank you very much!

Deep love and emotions: Romantic: Oh definitely.

Uncertain in relationships: I used to be until I found MWM.

Homely:I love my home.

Hardworking: I think so, and I'm sure my boss would agree if she didn't hate me and I her!

High abilities: I'm good at what I do - does that count?

Trustworthy: Totally.

Honest and keeps secrets: Your secret's safe with me, honest!

Not able to control emotions: I can cry at the drop of a hat.

Unpredictable: I don't think so.

Well that was quite fun to do but I'm not going to tag anyone. Feel free to have a go if you like and let me know if you do so I can read your answers please, cos I'm nosey!

Flowerpot said...

Very interesting. I dont agree with the analysis on those bornin Feb mind you, but the November one (my husband) is spot on!

Miss Understood said...

This is extraordinarily accurate for quite a few of the months my family/frends were born in. I may steal this!

The Rotten Correspondent said...

Wonderful answers! I really like this meme.

Gledwood said...

That's a lotta details!
Totally tangental/tangential ::~

Cream said...

Great fun, Akela.
I was born the last day in Feb so I'm definitely a funny mix between Feb and March.

Mark said...

Hi Akelamalu,
Mines May and I can see so many things that are me, made my missis chuckle

CG said...

I'm August and some is spot on but others are not!!

Travis said...

I always enjoy seeing how people evaluate themselves against the "standard" characterisitcs.

Tot's Mom said...

This one is fun to do, isn't it? I had fun doing it about a week or two ago. Mine is in October, by the way.

la bellina mammina said...

Akela! Happy New Year! Quick stop to say I'm back, though I'm unwell at the moment. So not a lot of blogging to do but will visit until I'm better. Great list - am born in January by the way! :-)

MarmiteToasty said...

Great mememememe...I was born in September and much of the quote thingie is NOT true about me and much of it is LOL..... :)


Elween said...

buffalodickdy said...

Thanks for sharing!

Akelamalu said...

I'm happy it made you smile Nick :)

Does he agree though Flowerpot? :)

Let me know if you do it Miss U I'd like to read it. x

Will you be having a go then Correspondent? :)

Oh I like that by Basho - thanks Gleds x

Funny mix Cream? Are you sure? ;)

I'm pleased you and the Mrs liked it Mark :)

So which bits aren't right CG?

Me too Trav, they're never totally spot on I don't think.

Oh I'll have a look for yours when I pop over Tot's Mom :)

Aw I'm sorry to hear you're not well Bella, you just get right honey and I'll keep popping by to see if you've posted. xx

Go on do it Marmie I bet your answers will be a scream! x

I didn't write it Elween I just copied it and answered each point for my birth month. I'm not that clever! ;)

You're welcome Buffalo x

Dan's Fi-ver said...

All I can say is that the first point made about those born in may simply can't be true!!

Akelamalu said...

Now I would have said it was ALL true apart from the 'hardhearted' bit Dan! x

RUTH said...

I'm APRIL: Active and dynamic NO!
Attractive and affectionate to oneself..NO!
Loves attention..NO!
Aggressive. Hasty. Good memory..NO!

Think I was born in the wrong month...mind you I was overdue!

lettuce said...

i've just glanced through my month. I don't think i'll be doing this!


nice to learn more about you tho

Linda said...

That's a really cool meme! I learned a lot about you, and I'll be you learned alot about yourself too! Love the song that's playing here right now - Bread, I Wanna Make It With You. Haven't heard that FOREVER!

Dave said...

It's amazing how much you can learn about somebody... I believe that I learned a lot about you! :-)

julia said...

Hey, fellow Scorpio - good to know another grown woman bursts out crying like I do... Do people tell you that it means you are real and have a warm heart? I know what they mean, but of course they're not the ones sniffing and trying to retain their composure.

By the way, thanks for all the Reiki you've been sending my way. I truly appreciate that energy sent my way - I felt it!

Bankerchick said...

Fun and Very interesting info about you but I am going to pass, this would take me months to finish. However, many, not all of the July things do apply.

Akelamalu said...

LOL Ruth being overdue is a good a reason as any to say it aint right! :)

Oh go on Lettie, you know you want to really ;)

I did Linda by having to analyse the traits! Glad you like the music - that track is one of my all time favourites! :)

I hope you liked what your learned Dave :)

I'm so happy the Reiki has been making a difference Julia. Us Scorpios are soppy aren't we? x

I think they're all very generalised Bankerchick but I found it fun to do. :)

GEWELS said...

October? Hmmm- yup, it pretty much sums it up.

Lovely answers my dear- I won't bother you tomorrow- what with the hangover and all.

CS said...

Fun answers. But you know, ig you look through, you can find that every month fits you.

Akelamalu said...

Thanks for not disturbing me yesterday Gewels I appreciate it honey. ((wink))

Of course they're all very general but it was fun to do - especially when you can't think what to blog about cs :)

Jo Beaufoix said...

Yay. Glad you did this. Some of it is a bit unwieldly isn't it, but it's fun to think about stuff like this sometimes.
