Whaddaya Know?

I followed the link from Enjay and discovered that:

I am a A Copper Dragon!

Hey, I took the online Inner Dragon quiz and found out I am a Copper Dragon on the inside.

In the war between good and evil, Copper Dragons take the side of the noble and good....
When it comes to the powers of Chaos vs. those of Law and Order, your inner dragon walks a fine line between Law and Chaos....
As far as magical tendancies, Magical spells come as natural to the Copper Dragon as breathe from it's body....
During combat situations, whether by spells or by claw, your inner dragon will do whatever it takes to get the job done....
Copper Dragons make their homes on wooded hillsides, preferably close to a spring or river. They are fond of the Irish and typically speak with a soft Irish accent.'
At birth, the Copper Dragon's body is covered in semi-reflective copper scales. As the dragon matures into it's young adult stages these scales become more polished and highly reflective.'
As the dragon grows older and moves to the elder stages of life, it's scales begin to tarnish and mature into a bright greenish brown color. Copper dragons spend little time among humans, but can be often found among the elves and other magical folk.
This Dragons favorite elements are: Copper, Emeralds, and Laughter


Who knew? But I like the sound of it.

I also like getting an email that says my new yarn left Leesburg via parcel post - since Leesburg isn't far, I am pretty sure it will get here Monday.

Yeah, but for that whole nasty "needing to earn a living," thing, I'd do it tomorrow. Tell the goaties to wish winning lottery numbers so I can become their Auntie Catherine.

Catherine said...

Mine was Moonchild - Cancerian, you know. But honestly, I really wanted to become Punctuation Dragon - nothing irks me like a misplaced apostrophe. But I know when I write here I'm usually speed-posting and not proofing well, if at all, so I can't throw any stones.

Spectral Dragon

In the war between good and evil, a Spectral Dragon tends to walk the fine line of Neutrality.
When it comes to the powers of Chaos vs. those of Law and Order, your inner dragon walks a fine line between Law and Chaos.
As far as magical tendancies, Magical spells come as natural to the Spectral Dragon as breathe from it's body.
During combat situations, a true Spectral Dragon prefers to defeat opponents by the use of spells and other tactics.
Dragon Description:

The resurrected spirits of fallen dragon warriors, Spectral Dragons usually find no allure in the ways of mortals or 'flesh-beings.' To this end most never possess a single gold piece. Instead, they live their unlives by a strict code of mental and metaphysical discipline. Their bodies are honed, focused avatars of dragon gods long-dead. They are leaders and teachers who prefer acolytes to be mages with an intense dedication to the betterment and empowerment of one's own spirit. However, these creatures can be fierce in combat; because of their nature, Spectral Dragons can change form at will, and their undead state does not mean they have no physical influence.

The magnificent blue-and-green flames of a Spectral Dragon are said to burn hotter than the fires of the living. In physical appearance Spectrals are often a shimmering grey-blue-white, much like a ghost; their common form appears similar to that of a shade-dragon. Their eyes glow one of three colors; the eyes of the honorably slain glow a bright green. The eyes of the murdered glow blood-red. And the eyes of the condemned, those whose greed or hatred destroyed their bodies, glow a bright violet.

This Dragons favorite elements are: are rose quartz, black roses, rain, funeral pyres, and songs sung for the dead

Okay - this is a delayed comment due to the fact that my connection at home bit the dust this weekend. I've enjoyed your take on the mommy wars as I am preggers with my first and will be working after the birth and (hopefully) 4 months of leave. I'm so tired of the "SACRIFICE!" martyrdom of those SAHMs - fine it's a choice for you, but my choice is to continue to work because I ENJOY it and becasue hey, I think things like 401(k)s and benifits and having the money to travel with the kid are things are are very benificial. I know it will be hard, I know I will be torn, but I know I will be doing the right thing for me. I'm so tired of the judgement of other mothers because - gasp!- I made a DIFFERENT choice. I'm doing a lot of things that others don't agree with (cloth diapering for cost reasons) seeing a midwife (my parents think I'm nuts) but you know what? It's my life, it's the choice of my husband and I to have a kid and raise them the way we see fit. So just as I would say to GWB - keep you ideals off my life, thank you very much.

Yeah, it's really simple: You do what works for your family. You are smart to think of 401Ks and savings and the chance to take a vacation now and then, these things do matter. As does keeping your working life alive, because kids do grow up and after they do you still have years of working life in you. In an ideal world, we'd adopt a system like some European countries where a parent gets six months or a year's paid leave for a birth, and high quality preschools and day care are a priority for the country. My concern is that as long as we make this a "Well, you can always stay home and SACRIFICE!" burden on women, our country has no incentive to move beyond that and actually look at ways to make having kids and a working life work. A lot of companies are really on top of the issue but the majority are still in the "it's the woman's problem," mindset. I'm sick of every responsibility of family life being primarily "a woman's problem."
