Manic Monday 12/22

If you were at a friend’s house for a holiday dinner and you found a dead cockroach in your salad, what would you do? I'd stop eating the salad and probably just throw it out. I doubt I'd mention it...I'd feel awful bringing it up, but it depends which friend it is.

If you could put anyone you know on Prozac, who would you choose? Well I probably should have been on it a few times when I fell into depression. I wouldn't be able to choose someone, though.

How do you feel about public displays of affection? They are okay, but people don't need to make out in public. Holding hands, hugging, brief kisses...fine!

Your Snow Test Says You're Independent

You feel like something good will happen to you in the next few months.

You don't really like to work, unless work feels like play. You only are successful when you are doing what you love.

You are an independent, individualistic person. You thrive when you're doing your own thing.

Your biggest worry in life is your family. You stay up at night thinking about them.

When it comes time to relax, you have difficulty relaxing. You are a bit high strung.

Soooo true!

You Are Flannel Pajamas

You seek comfort above everything else. You rather feel good than look good.

You are a very relaxed person, especially when you're surrounded by your favorite things and people.

You are a homebody. Home is the place where you can truly be yourself.

You are likely to wear pajamas a lot. In fact, you often change into your pj's the minute you get home!
