mom's birthday '11

Your Birthday is Pink

You are the dreamy type. You can't help but be an idealist, even if your dreams get crushed from time to time.

You have a vision of how the world should be. You work hard to make life easier and better for people.

You are generous. In fact, you give until it hurts and expect nothing in return.

You are sometimes disappointed. It's discouraging to have such high hopes when things don't work out.

"This area has to do with introspective and self-reflective capacities. Those who are strongest in this intelligence are typically introverts and prefer to work alone. They are usually highly self-aware and capable of understanding their own emotions, goals and motivations. They often have an affinity for thought-based pursuits such as philosophy.

open-id/live journal issues

for the past few days i've been unable to log-in to live journal with my open-id *grumble* hopefully this will be fixed soon.

ETA (9-15-11): i can log in, but am afraid to log out. have logged out in 3 days. just hit "restore previous session" when i start up firefox.
haven't tried other places where i log in with my open-id, so i don't know what's going on there.

five things #128

Five Earth traditions or customs Vala really likes

1. dressing up for halloween. she liked to wear costumes anyway, but the fact that you could get candy for it was just icing on the cake.

2. celebrating birthdays. most planets didn't, either you were happy you were still alive to see another year or you weren't. it was nice to be somewhere were people celebrated life. the presents & cake were a nice bonus.

3. a day to give thanks. for the little things as well as the big ones. plus it's the only time vala can get sweet potato casserole.

4. celebrating the new year with champagne, celebrating anything with champagne really.

5. a day to get gifts to honor someone else's birthday, a religious icon no less. another day of presents plus a bunch of food. bonus: there big sales before and after.

remembering dragon-con

i can't believe it was this time last year (more or less) that my brother were in line to pick up our badges for our second dragon-con. and would be in line for like 4 more hours. (UGH!) but hopefully with the new system, that wait is much shorter. it's the 25th anniversary of the con & my brother thinks we should've went to this year's instead of last year's. but everyone is going to this one & scott bakula was at last year's. and many of this year's star trek people were at the on in 2009. but there a a few new ones thanks to garrett wang being in charge of the track now. i would love to go back some day, but my vetoed that. plus it's more complicated to travel now because of all the security stuff.
