Some facts about me

I've just made myself a big cup of hot cocoa and a jug full of hot Japanese barley tea (which is cooling now for later, when I'm desperate to drink something and there isn't anything around except alcohol... and I'll be desperate because I'm ill with a cold), and just after 3/4 of a cocoa I remembered that you NEVER EVER give a person with a high fever hot milk!... Why? I don't know exactly why, but hot milk plus a fever equalls being sick - stomach doesn't like this combination at all! At least my stomach didn't, from an early childhood. And now I'm feeling a little strange, excuse moi if I leave you for a short while in a hurry... ><

I sent today my Project Spectrum Postcard Swap postcard to Evelyn, I hope she gets it soon and she'll like it! ^^ I concentrated on April colours - yellow and orange - and also played around the theme of Polish Easter tradition - paited eggs. Oh, don't worry, I didn't send you eggs in spe!... ^-^

Now, because I have a virus cold (I've been to a doctor today,well...), I'm not very productive and I cannot show you much as far as knitting or sewing (although I have 12 cm/4,8 in of my SnowWhite shawl done! ^^ And I have carefully planned all the pockets in my knitting bag, now I have to sit with a pencil and a piece of paper, and draw it with all the measurements.), so, while eating pieces of carmelised sweet potato (very delicious, one of my last Saturday Asian food shopping! ^^) I'm going to post some facts about me based on my birthday date, 31st October:

Your Birthdate: October 31

You're a pretty traditional person. If it's lasted, it's probably good.
You seek stability - both in your career and your romantic relationship.
In return, you're very loyal and predictable. Which is usually a good thing.
Without a partner, you feel lost. Being with someone is very important to you.

Your strength: Your dependability

Your weakness: You hate being alone

Your power color: Midnight blue

Your power symbol: Shell

Your power month: April
Okay, let's analyse what was said above.
I don't know anything about Midnight blue, shells and April, but:
1. Traditional - yes, I am. But in a very bizarre way. I get used to objects and won't let go when it's their time to go - like, for example, old tv, that will be replaced with a brand new top make super quality modern device (although the old one is still good enough to watch...). I would cry and cling to it, and feel sad many days after the old tv was removed. I know it's just an inanimate object, but still... I got used to it and that's that! I just hate when something around me changes.
Which brings us to a similar subject, namely:
1a. I hate surprises! I mean, not the ones I-open-the-mail-and-it-turns-out-somebody-sweet-sent-me-a-million-dollar-check-or-a-skein-of-beautifully-green-yarn, not that kind of a surprise!... (I LOVE such surprises! ^-^ But who wouldn't!...) I hate surprises when somebody takes you somewhere ("Let's go out, but I won't tell you where we're going, it's a surprise!"), and I have no idea where I'm going, what to wear, who to expect, what to pack (if it's a longer trip out of town)... Such surprises make me very nervous and uneasy, and no one can persuade me that it's nice to have that shiver of the unknown. I hate having any shivers, thank you very much!
2. Which probably leads to my seeking stability, yes, I seek stability in everything I do. I don't like changing jobs or flats, I keep my old habits, I visit the same beauty parlour for years and my dear Ms Dominika.
3. I can be loyal like hell! But not that predictable as one might think. Because sometimes (read: rather often) the eveil part of me takes over and when I'm furious about something, no one can predict what I'm going to say or do, not even me!... I should have "Joanna, calm down and think first!" tatooed on my forehead sometimes... ><
4. Without a partner I do feel lost. Really. I can see all you feminists laugh your heads off or shake your heads in amazement, but it's true. I've never been alone, I had this boyfriend since secondary school, then we shared more and more interests (so spent lots of time together), and finally got married almost two years ago, and frankly speaking I am lotally lost without him... Of course I can go shopping without him, but for example I am not able to go to the cinema alone - what's the point? When I'm left home alone for a few days, I cannot sleep, I feel anxious, I must have him around.
So, generally, I agree with most of it, who could have imagined that the day of your birth can determine your character so much?...I'm amazed!
(And also dizzy, but it's probably fever, not hot milk, as I expected... ^^).

  1. Sorry to hear you are still feeling under the weather. Hope you are feeling better soon. Warm fuzzies are coming your way from down under.

    I don't laugh as I too would "feel lost" without my partner. He has been my rock in the past few years. Next week will be the first time we have been apart in the past 3 years!! :( I am looking forward to going but it will be hard.

    Take care >^..^<
