Oh, for crying out stinking loud.  
So. There are days when my emotional waterhose unkinks and I spew the pent up crazy on everyone. Thank you, hormones. Much appreciated.

Rather than bitching about how stressed I am and how close I am to the metaphorical breaking point and how I cried when The Fear That You Won't Fall by Joshua Radin came on the CD player when I was taking the boys to school (mad!), I have for you some memes that I've been saving up for just such a special occasion.

Your Birthdate: January 14

People wouldn't take you for a passionate person - and that's where they'd be wrong.
You can develop deep emotions quickly, and you're the type most likely to move in with someone after a few dates.

Number of True Loves You'll Have: 6

Number of Times You'll Have Your Heart Broken: 3

You are most compatible with people born on the 5th, 14th, and 23rd of the month.
What Carrie Means

You are very open. You communicate well, and you connect with other people easily.
You are a naturally creative person. Ideas just flow from your mind.
A true chameleon, you are many things at different points in your life. You are very adaptable.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.



You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.
You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

I don't stick with any one thing for long? Crap, crap, megacrap. The type A thing might be spot on, though. My kind of trouble is fun, though. Hee hee.

This amuses me greatly, of course. Even though I've never seen an episode of Sex in the City. Nolan thinks SJP is a (and I'm quoting him, here) "trollop." He has no basis for this opinion, I'm sure she's a perfectly lovely person. I liked her Gap ad last year.

*snort* megalomaniac, indeed.


You shout, "My spoon is too big?" That may reqire explanation.
michael_caligamichael_caliga on January 18th, 2008 04:27 pm (UTC)
Michael's just pissed that I used him to gush over Mandy.
Numbaby: Robin Hoodnumbaby on January 18th, 2008 05:06 pm (UTC)
Pretty Michael needs to loosen up. Acknowledging another dude's awesomeness does not have an automatic correlation with snogging and spooning them (however much various ladies may have enjoyed that particular episode).
michael_caliga: distressedmichael_caliga on January 18th, 2008 05:08 pm (UTC)


....

Erm, thanks.
Numbaby: veilnumbaby on January 18th, 2008 05:10 pm (UTC)
*Pats poor Michael's head*
I was all set to make a dig about how I wasn't sure if you and Cormac could really be counted as one of my favourite platonic Caliga Relationships, but I think I'll just tell you how pretty you are instead. Your eyes are very sparkly, dear.
Kate: Caliga - M/Smugglechump on January 18th, 2008 05:12 pm (UTC)
Michael should always feel welcome to snog and spoon Susan. She loves a good Michael snuggle. And, though she's not terribly good at saving herself, she'd happily defend Michael from any unwanted cuddlers.
Numbaby: CedSkynumbaby on January 18th, 2008 05:01 pm (UTC)
Unless your eneamy has a-studied his Agrippa, which I have!

When I was about 15, Steph (one of my five best friends) was telling us about these hilarious, random cartoons online where one character goes "I'm a BANANA!" and the other replies "My SPOON is too big!". One of the sketches also has "I'm the Queen of France, do do do do do do do do", and we all quoted them like mad, even though I never though to actually find and watch them until I remembered them a month or so ago.

And how the frack did I get Society/Glamour Barbie? I feel...dirty. Not the fun Oliver kind of dirty.
Kate: Caliga - M/Smugglechump on January 18th, 2008 03:53 pm (UTC)
7. Your dream last night? Cormac

Hee. My dreams? Michael. This morning, however, I've been listening to the Hairspray soundtrack and having lovely thoughts of Cormac.

Frank 'nibble the wires' Goat can kiss my pudgy white behind. Damned LJ.

1) Where/how did we meet: LJ? FIA forums? One of the two.
2) Take a stab at my middle name: I'm going to say it starts with an E. Only because all the Carries/Kerrys I've known have had middle names like Ellen and Elizabeth.
3) Do I smoke: Not since your vocal coach pointed out how low it was making your voice.
4) Color of my eyes: Eep. Blue?
5) Do I have any siblings: Yes, at least one sister.
6) What's one of my favorite things to do: Swim with dolphins? No, no, that's not it. Act, chat with Celeste, share with us how freaking adorable your kids are.
7) What is my favorite color: No idea. Blue?
8) What's my favorite type of music: Erm. Rock?
9) Am I shy or outgoing: Outgoing.
10) Am I a rebel or do I follow the rules: You rulebreaker, you.
11) Any special talents: Aside from the acting, writing, and fabulous wit? There's the spectacular mothering ability.
12) How many children do I have: 2 - Ethan and Aaron.
13) What do I drive: a car. I can't be more specific.
15) How old am I: 35 and 4 days.
16) If you and I were stranded on a desert island, what is one thing that I would bring: Hopefully a very powerful cell phone.

*hugs* I'm sorry you're all emotional today. Feel better.
Carrie Leigh: cliffs of insanitycarrie_leigh on January 18th, 2008 04:01 pm (UTC)
I'm glad someone else dreams about their fictional character's fictional boyfriend. It makes the crazy seem less pronounced.

#2. Nope. Although Carrie Elizabeth is pretty.
My eyes are green. As is my favorite color.

Thanks. I'm sure it'll pass. It always does, right?
Kate: Two Lumps:  Absinthemugglechump on January 18th, 2008 04:08 pm (UTC)
Dammit. Now that you mention it, I totally knew your eyes were green. And I wanted to say green for favorite color, but I thought I might be projecting my favorite onto you.

And yes, well, my fictional character has a far better romantic situation than I do. Fantasy is warranted. I'm at peace with the crazy. ;D
michael_caliga: relaxed poshmichael_caliga on January 18th, 2008 04:28 pm (UTC)
I love being at peace with the crazy.

Carrie Leigh: janitorcarrie_leigh on January 18th, 2008 05:16 pm (UTC)

Close call, though.

I've never realized it, but I am damned lucky I never had any Anthony/Megan dreams. Thank Merlin.

Although... Zach Quinto is pretty hot, caliga related craziness aside.

Feel better! I sure know how the crying jags suck. I just got over that point a couple weeks ago, I was crying at everything. Ridiculous.
