Evening, stream of consciousness and quiz roundup

Nice dinner, then off to be sociable down the pub for a bit with Pete, Diana, Sion and Jan. Before they arrived talked for a bit with Paul and Dave, two random blokes standing at the bar. They seemed nice enough. Why is it always me who ends up in these conversations though? Talked about dogs and parents and divorce and throwing parties for other people and random other bits and pieces. Drank diet coke. Pleasant way to spend the evening, and tried to keep the sad moments out of sight.

Ended up talking in the carpark for ages after closing time. Tried to reassure Jan that it was nothing she'd done wrong, and that I don't think the politics and angst and jealousy and so on over the last few months had anything to do with it either. Now reminded of Vicky disbelieving that you could ever just drift out of love again without something having triggered it. But I think that's all it was, and I don't know why or how. And I do still love her, I'm just not "in love", if that's the way to distinguish it. It's all too complicated. Don't want anyone to blame August for it though. That's the one thing that's been worrying me most. Most of all that he'll blame himself. There *is* no-one to blame but me, for changing how I feel somehow, and it's not something I'd have chosen.

RJK still feeling grotty when I got back, but a hot chocolate seems to be perking him up a bit. Still wondering why I bother with gaps between packets of pills anyway. Have the Rory McLeod song about kisses going through my head. Still haven't listened to the second one of the double CD. Bedtime soon, but first here's the quizzes I've collected over the past week, a contradictory mass of things that say not very much about me at all.

You are Brian!
You are Brian Molko!

Who are you?

Mmmmm, yum.

cute angel
Cute angel...everyone loves that cute face of
yours! You're very outgoing and people just
love to be around you. You're so much fun!

What kind of angel are you?

Blech, that's cloyingly cute. And violently ugly in colour.

Casablanca End Scene: You are the "Casablanca
End Scene". You are the scene that is
known worldwide. The scene that made the
phrase "here's looking at you kid"
famous. This scene touched people all over the
world. It showed how love and friendship shape
your life.

What Famous Scene From A Movie Are You?

... *sigh*

You represent... naivete.
You represent... naivete. So innocent and trusting... you can be very shy at
times, but it's only because you're not sure
how to act. You give off that "I need to
be protected vibe." Remember that not all
people are good. Being too trusting will get
you easily hurt.

What feeling do you represent?
brought to you by Quizilla

Wouldn't say I was shy, perhaps some of the rest is true.

YOU are neutral. The fairy, sprite, elf. You get the point, little
creature with wings of some sort. You fly
around, or sneak about playing jokes on
everyone. You're fairly neutral to the story,
and everyone else thinks the things you do are
kinda mean, but you are in the story for a
reason, and regardless of what that might be, i
think your hilarious. so keep it up.

what fairy tale role do you play? (this time with pictures)
brought to you by Quizilla


You're From Jupiter
You're From Jupiter. This means that you are bound
to be very modivated to advance yourself
whether it be first in a race or gaining more
money, nothing stands in your way when you set
your mind to it.

What Planet are You From?
brought to you by Quizilla

*boggle* Not me at all. Dunno how on earth it got that from my answers.

You are Bella, the Romantic Goth! You would love to
live in the time of Byron and Shelley. People
probably call you Elvira or Morticia. But you
are above them, those poor foolish mortals.

Where are you on the Gothic Spectrum?

I can bully it into making me a perky instead. I don't think I fit any of them though. Perky by attitude, just about anything by what I dance to, perky/romantic/stompy cross by dress sense.

What Flavour Are You? I taste like Bread.I taste like Bread.

I am a staple in almost everyone's diet. Friends like me are a complement to any other friends I get on with almost everyone, remaining mostly in the background, but providing substance when it would otherwise be lacking. What Flavour Are You?

If I were not Bread I would be Vanilla, apparently. Sounds like I am mostly bland and inoffensive. I know I try keep out of rows, but I'm not sure I'd go that far.

If I were a Dead Russian Composer, I would be Aleksandr Borodin.

Son of a 19th Century Russian prince and a...non-royal...mother, I went to medical school and became a biochemist. Most people, however, (and probably my twenty cats as well) agree that they'd trade all of my scientific discoveries for another set of "Polovetsian Dances."

Who would you be? Dead Russian Composer Personality Test

I didn't answer "vodka" to everything, but was tempted.
