Finally, some recognition!

I found this little gem today; and of course I couldn't resist. (Gem... gems... Ah, I miss D&D. *sniff-sob-WAHHHH!!*)
So without further ado.... I give you... ME!

I am a d4

Take the quiz at

And I quote: "You are a four-sided die, a d4. Otherwise known as a tetrahedron, a "Caltrop", or (to a lesser degree) "Ol' Pointy". This stuff bores you, so I'll get to the point. Others tend to see you as petty, conniving, manipulative, argumentative, defensive, greedy, and needlessly antagonistic. You see yourself as focused, effective, efficient, influencing, shrewd, tactical, and direct. Both points of view are in fact correct. You always know the best way to get things done, a fact that never wins sympathy with others. Whenever you manage to gain control of a situation, your solutions are swift and brutal. Unfortunately everyone else is convinced that granting you such power is, "a bad thing" and often conspire to keep it out of your hands. Such short-sighted fools!"

HAH! Beat THAT if you can! Ok, now I'll go back to my alternate personality, the one that likes cuddly kittens, and fluffy clouds, and lovely flowers, and little children that go skip-skip-skip and sing merry tunes. But I swear, I *did* answer the quiz questions as best as I could!

On to more important (More grown up? More sane?) things. My cousin is having a baby! My cousin Katerina, who is like my sister (yes, I like to embarass my extended family as well) is having a baby and is due 5 weeks after me. As if that wasn't exciting enough, I found out today she's having a little girl! WOHOO! Of course now my mind is full of soppy images of these two little girls, sharing a sister-like bond, looking forward to seeing each other every summer, writting letters to each other and pretending they're twins. All this is Bad Karma, you understand. They are probably going to grow up despising each other, simply because it's the Universe's way of telling me "Neener Neener Neener!" (Or something slightly more articulate, one would hope.) But I sure am going to do everything in my power to push them together. Does locking them in a room and not feeding them until they bond count as child abuse? Really??

At this point, here's a little quiz for you:

What was Katerina's first reaction upon hearing the news that I was going to have a baby?

a) "Congratulations!", jumping up and hugging me.

b) Tears of joy.

c) "I need a smoke", while staring at me in shock.

Yes, you guessed it, it was c. And at the time she was pregnant too, but didn't know yet. Again, Karma! Actually, most of my friends where really shocked that I was having a baby. I don't know why! (Really, isn't the world ready for the mini-version of me?) But I find Katerina's reaction especially funny, in retrospect. Ah, I love her. I wish we lived closer to each other. She's the best! CONGRATULATIONS KATERINA AND LESLIE... I miss you both!

There, that was cleansing. I feel all soppy now.

And while we're on the subject of reactions to my pregnancy, here's today's list:

The Top 3 things my mum has said about me since I got pregnant:

1. Oh, you look... Pregnant. When I was 12 weeks along, at the airport, after seeing me for the first time in 4 months. The conversation continued as follows:

Cathy (my sister-in-law): You mean because she has this special glow?

Mum: No, because of the Belly.

2. Oh, did she think that you were having twins because you look so big? This was after I had my first scan, and I told her that the technician said everything looked fine, and there's only one baby in there.

3. Awww, she wants the baby to be pretty! After I said I hope the baby looks like Peter.

But really, she means well. She's so excited about Matilda, she wants to embroider sheets for her crib. And hey, I forgive her everything. She's been a wonderful mum. I even forgive her for saying I'm sick, because I want to have a Rabbit AND a Cat AND a Baby (or two... or three... or four... you get the picture.)

And speaking of pictures... Isn't the love of my love going to make a wonderful dad? Yes he is! And you can't have him, I saw him first. Move along now! Move along!
