Your Seduction Style: Au Natural

You rank up there with your seduction skills, though you might not know it.
That’s because you’re a natural at seduction. You don’t realize your power!
The root of your natural seduction power: your innocence and optimism.

You’re the type of person who happily plays around and creates a unique little world.
Little do you know that your personal paradise is so appealing that it sucks people in.
You find joy in everything – so is it any surprise that people find joy in you?

You bring back the inner child in everyone you meet with your sincere and spontaneous ways.
Your childlike (but not childish) behavior also inspires others to care for you.
As a result, those who you befriend and date tend to be incredibly loyal to you.

What Kind of Seducer Are You?

Your World View

You are a happy, well-balanced person who likes people and is liked by others.
You question whether many conventional views on morality are valid under all circumstances.
You are essentially a content person.

Sometimes, you consider yourself a little superior.
You are moral by your own standards.
You believe that morality is what best suits the occasion.

Your Five Variable Love Profile

Propensity for Monogamy:

Your propensity for monogamy is low.
You see love as a gift that you should give to many.
It’s hard for you to imagine being with one person at at time…
Let alone one person for the rest of your life!

Experience Level:

Your experience level is medium.
You probably have had a couple significant loves.
And you may have even had your heart broken.
But you haven’t really dated a wide variety of people.

Dominance:

Your dominance is low.
This doesn’t mean you’re a doormat, just balanced.
You know a relationship is not about getting your way.
And you love to give your sweetie a lot of freedom.

Cynicism:

Your cynicism is medium.
You’d like to believe in true and everlasting love…
But you’ve definitely been burned enough to know better.
You’re still an optimist, but you also are a realist.

Independence:

Your independence is high.
You don’t need to be in love, and sometimes you don’t even want love.
Having your own life is very important for you…
Even more important than having a relationship.

You Are Not Scary

Everyone loves you. Isn’t that sweet?
Your Love Element Is Fire

In love, you are a true listener and totally present.
For you, love is all about feeling more alive than you’ve ever felt.

You attract others with your joy and passion.
Your flirting style is defined by your strong ability to communicate.

Fun and play are the cornerstones of your love life.
And while your flame may burn too brightly, it’s part of your appeal.

You connect best with: Wood

Avoid: Water

You and another Fire element: will likely burn out quickly

The Keys to Your Heart

You are attracted to those who are unbridled, untrammeled, and free.

In love, you feel the most alive when things are straight-forward, and you’re told that you’re loved.

You’d like to your lover to think you are stylish and alluring.

You would be forced to break up with someone who was insecure and in constant need of reassurance.

Your ideal relationship is open. Both of you can talk about everything… no secrets.

Your risk of cheating is low. Even if you’re tempted, you’d try hard not to do it.

You think of marriage as something precious. You’ll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.

In this moment, you think of love as something you can get or discard anytime. You’re feeling self centered.

When I say that it’s okay
I mean it’s okay to cry
Okay to scream
Okay to yell
Okay to wish he’d die

I’m not good at this stuff
I’m not good at comforting
Encouragement is not my gift
My gift is in listening

So please forgive my lack of words
My complete lack of finesse
I don’t know what to say to help
I don’t know what would be best.

I don’t know how to make it better
Or make it go away
I would if I could you know
And I’d make him pay

All I can do is sit with you
And hold you while you cry
I can’t make it better or make sense
But I’ll join in asking why

Please know that I love you
And I believe that you can do it
This may not make it easier
But together we’ll get through it

…..the gunpowder treason and plot. I know of no reason why gunpowder treason should ever be forgot.

This is the opening line to V for Vendetta, a movie that kicked serious butt! Maybe it’s because all the other movies out recently are remakes or just plain bad but I doubt it. Made by the Wachowski brothers (of the Matrix triology), it once again explored their favorite theme: what happens when the government gets too much control.

V: A people should not be afraid of their government. A government should be afraid of it’s people.

As you watch the movie, you feel as though you are seeing what Hitler’s regime would have looked like given another 80 or so years. From flags that resemble a double broken cross to “detention” camps where the “undesirables” are taken to a pit where the naked dead bodies of “experiments” are thrown, you get the eerie feeling of having been here before. A Holocaust movie from the future.

Set in England, V (Hugo Weaving, Matrix and Lord of the Rings) is the hero who comes along crying for a revolution through anarchy. His at first reluctant partner, Evey Hammond (Natalie Portman, Star Wars I, II and III), has lived in fear of the government her whole life. After seeing her mother dragged off to a detention camp, Evey has no desire to follow in her footsteps.

Evey: I wish I wasn’t afraid all the time.

Evey knows that the government is wrong. She and many others can tell when the news reporter is lying, feeding the public a lie fed to them by the government. But they feel powerless to do anything. It’s not until Evey has to face her worst fear that she is able to overcome it.

V: You are completely free. You have no fear anymore.

This is the kind of movie that makes you want to stand up and tell the government to back off. 🙂 And in some things, I think perhaps we should. Maybe we shouldn’t blow up Parliment or the White House to do it. But if we simply sit back and let them invade our lives, who knows? Maybe we aren’t so far off from where the citizens of England found themselves in V for Vendetta.

V: This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is it vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished, as the once vital voice of the verisimilitude now venerates what they once vilified. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose vis-à-vis an introduction, and so it is my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.

I look so…..professional!

INtake blog

 

And Josh!

We’re part of a blog squad! lol. (Wasn’t there some really bad Christian group called the God Squad? Or maybe I’m thinking of ‘Saved’……)

So, yeah. That’s us. Sheryl should be up soon. And then it’s look out Indy! 😀

Whoever wrote up the Christians Changing Light Bulbs thing forgot one. (Actually, it probably wasn’t around but whatever.)

Emergent: Everyone

We will come together in our faith community to learn how each of us changes a light bulb. Everyone is welcome to join in the conversation. We will then send one another into our respective neighborhoods/workplaces and help our neighbors/co-workers by listening about their light bulbs and helping change them if they want to. We’ve spent too many years changing our own light bulbs or forcing others into changing theirs.

Mikayla: I love you.
Me: I love you too.
Mikayla: Let’s get married.
Me: Uh, no.
Mikayla: Why?
Me: Because you’re gonna grow up to be a woman. You know what women are?
Mikayla: Crazy?
Me: Exactly. Women are insane and men are evil.
Mikayla: Whatever.

I suppose the fact that we’re sisters would have been a more valid point but this is the way my brain works. Gotta start the bitterness young. 😉

I am so going to see this!!!!!! 😀

Ok, I know I’m gonna get made fun of for blogging about this, especially since I don’t work there anymore. But I don’t care. My friend Allison that I worked with there wrote a blog about this and it brought back a lot of memories, so I’m venting my frustrations too. 🙂

Chick-fil-A was a big part of my life for almost 2 1/2 years. Some days were absolutely great. Those were the days that kept me working there. Everyone was in a good mood (co-workers *and* customers), things were running effeciently, we weren’t so busy we didn’t have time to think, etc. However, there were also bad, bad, bad days. Customers were rude, making co-workers cranky. Everything felt like it was falling apart. No one would have time to go get simple things like ice or change out a soda line, thereby putting even more pressure and stress on the ordertakers. So here are a few simple things that I learned at CFA. Allison lists a lot of the same ones.

1. Do NOT bite people’s heads off for making a mistake. More than likely, it’s not the cashier’s fault. Yes it is part of our job to check but you can only look into so many white bags before everything starts to run together.

2. Do NOT leave a huge mess for the dining room person to clean up. Yes, they’re going to clean it up but only because they can’t just leave the table a mess. On that same note, don’t leave nasty dirty diapers at the table either. 😛

3. If you don’t like tomatoes, pick. them. off! Don’t hold up the line by having us make a whole new wrap or sandwhich. The kitchen people work very hard and have more important things to do. If you’re allergic to it, that’s one thing. Otherwise, take care of it yourself.

4. Do NOT hit on the girl trying to help you. It’s creepy and annoying. She isn’t there to be your eye candy, she’s there to work. And no, she is NOT on the menu! Take your un-original self someplace else.

5. If you smoke, don’t blow it in the person’s face. And if it’s weed, you shouldn’t even be driving!

6. If you want light/extra/no ice, tell the person you’re giving your order to BEFORE they make the drinks!!!!!!

7. If you’ve just order 4 large lemonades and the person getting them has filled 2 1/1 of the cups, don’t decide then that you want diet instead. Lemonade is expensive and takes time to make and we can’t just dump it back into the machine.

8. Look at the dang menu board! It says right there that a combo *includes fries*! And if you don’t want fries or a drink, then it’s *not* a combo! On that same note, the difference between a #1 and a #7? It’s coleslaw, which is also on the menu board. There are even pretty pictures to help you with this hard, hard fact.

9. Do NOT talk on your cell phone when the person behind the counter is trying to help you. CFA prides itself on being quick while also giving good service. You being on the phone just slows things down and it’s *rude*! There are other people in line waiting to order. If you don’t know what you want or you need to finish a conversation, step out of line.

10. Do NOT throw your money at the cashier. Hand it to them nicely.

11. Do NOT sit at the drive-thru window counting out all of your change. You have probably just had at least a minute to do that while you were waiting in line. Also, keep the weather in mind. The cashier has to open that window and be blasted with the freezing cold/heat/rain every time a customer drives up. So try to keep things quick.

12. Do NOT use all of your coupons in one visit. If you get a sandwhich, 3 large drinks, 2 8 nuggets and 3 brownies and pay for one drink, that throws off the cashiers check point average. Not to mention it says that our food is only good enough if you get it for free.

13. If the person helping you says hi or asks how you are, answer them. Don’t stare at them or at the menu board or just say “Give me…..” The person is probably being genuine and even if they aren’t, that’s no excuse for you to be rude.

14. SMILE! It won’t kill you, I promise. More than likely, the person helping you has seen their share of scowls and angry words already. A smile and a kind word can go soooooo far.

15. Do NOT ask us to throw your trash from your car away for you. We aren’t allowed to anyway.

16. Acknowledge that the person helping you is in fact a person. We aren’t robots. We are people with feelings. You ignoring us isn’t helping us be any nicer to you.

17. We aren’t psychic. You have to tell us what you want. Just because you know what drink you want doesn’t mean it’s made it to our thought process.

18. Do NOT, do NOT, do NOT drive off while the order taker is talking! You can wait another 30 seconds while they repeat your order, making sure that it’s correct! That is beyond rude!

19. I know that those emails that go around telling you to go through a drive-thru, ask a million questions, change your order 5 times and then order a water are funny. However, it’s not funny to the people working there. They have much better things to do then deal with your idiotic butt.

20. We cannot control the texture of the IceDream. Some days it’s softer than others. If you only like it when it’s hard, yellow and nasty, go buy some vanilla ice cream and leave it in your freezer until it has freezer burn. Same thing! 😛

21. Above all, have patience. The people who work there are human. They will make mistakes. It is not the end of the world. At Chick-fil-A, we try our very hardest not to make them but sometimes it can’t be helped. Sometimes *you the customer* helped in our messing it up. If we can’t hear you because you’re blaring your music or you forgot to tell us something because you were yaking on the phone or you drove off before we could repeat the order, that is not our fault. As Allison said, the customer can be right for only so long. 🙂

Because I’m blogging for INtake, baby!!!!!!!! 🙂
