Completely frivolous and the not so


For a change of pace from all the election news I've been following and to indulge in my favourite pastime of procrastination, here's a Blogthings query (thanks to Joy from Babble On).

What's Your Name's Hidden Meaning?



What Ellen Means



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.

You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow.

You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily.

Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.

You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.

You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.




... and the not so frivolous

Despite feeling tired of all the political commentary and election news, I am still following the U.S. election.

The Colin Powell endorsement of Barack Obama was certainly a day-brightener. His Meet the Press interview set out his reasoning in a clear, logical and classy way. If I were a U.S. citizen, I'd be voting Obama/Biden.

Quite a bit of that sounds like you, doesn't it? From what I know about you, I don't think of you as ever being the slightest bit flaky but do think of you as easy going, creative, charming, and wise.

I loved what Colin Powell said and wish we had more people here who think that way. We might be more like Canadians then. :-)

As you know, I'm voting for Obama/Biden.

After reading a few of these now, I'm beginning to see we can't lose with them. In all of them, only one line seems to be a caution.
Agree on colin. He just, iin my mind, summed up what so many of us have been thinking all along.I hope there are enough of us.
As you know I am doing a write in for Joy and David Dust.
