  1. Now i'm a bit frustrated that I have to know someone really well and for a long time to see their color, lol. When I try to think of your colors I just think of the colors in your profile pics, mostly.

    I like being electric blue though. I find it interesting since my hair is dyed blue irl.

    I actually think it might be a similar thing for Tom. The color descriptions he gives are on the whole related to the colors in our profile pictures. Brian's primary color is black, Nimue's is an auburn red and so forth. The interesting part to me is that it seems like his brain adjusts the associated color the more he gets to know someone. The primary color in my profile picture and my previous one is the beige-brown of the koala, which seems to have morphed into a forest green over time for Tom. This doesn't explain how Chrystalline became pale yellow or how you became electric blue. I believe those are purely derived from your personalities.

    Gods I love psychology. Really should have done my bachelor in that.

    I'd say you're mint green, Thinker.

    Yours is alizarin crimson. For myself, I don't know if I can pin down a color. Probably cobalt blue.

    I remember when I was 19, walking down the sidewalk of a busy street in San Francisco, new to the city, and some fortune teller psychic was hawking her services, told me to come in and she could read my future. I said no thanks with a smile and kept walking. She yelled after me and said she could even read auras — "Your aura's black!" At the time, I had a passing knowledge of various new age ideas, and that made me pause in my thoughts. But I kept walking.

    Edit: Not a comment on other color related posts in this thread, heh, just a memory triggered by them.

    Which triggers a memory in me. It's from some long-forgotten sitcom, probably dating to the 70s, when "Jesus loves you" was more common a catch-phrase than it is today. The character, intensely frustrated with another character, glares at them, on the verge of erupting, and manages to splutter out, "Jesus ... likes ... you."

    Still makes me smile.
     
  6. I wonder if people who can read auras actually just have synesthesia?

    Huh, that's an interesting theory. I personally have to know someone pretty well to get a color impression from them, but I'm sure there are other people with synesthesia out there who can assign colors to people upon first meeting them.

    Last year, a friend dragged me to the psychic fair that was being held not far from the college, and there was this one woman there who claimed to be able to read auras. I was pretty skeptical until she described mine as how I saw it in detail, down to the last tone shift. Not sure how much of that psychic stuff I believe, but I was impressed.

    Two or three of my friends can see auras as part of their spiritual beliefs. And one in particular will set next to you for a chat and start teasing out your aura like they would do if you had long hair and wanted them to brush it. It was strange the first time they did it, but it is just their way of saying hi and being nice to you.
    As I can't see auras I can only attest to their belief in them.

    My MIL and I went for a morning walk with some church ladies. It was 50 something degrees, a bit breezy but nice. One of the ladies had a coat, gloves, and hat on and was shivering. She turns to me and says, "This isn't cold to you, huh?"

    HA! NOPE. Let's just say moving to Washington has taken us back about 5 months in times of weather. This is Alaskan spring baby! (so long snowy Alaska, I hear the snow just won't stop piling on hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaa)
     
  10. For some reason, I associate certain words with food.

    Awful = pie
    Angry = macaroni

    Is anyone else like this?

  11. Do you strongly dislike pie?

    I don't really experience anything like this.
     
  12. No. I love pie and macaroni.
     
  13. Question: Suppose werewolves are real. Would they ever turn into a wolf if they just kept ahead of the full moon by, say, flying on a super fast jet?
     
  14. What if a werewolf traveled to the moon?

    No! The magnetic pull of the moon will affect a werewolf whether he's on a plane or on land. Duh. :D

    I'm done working on Part 3 (of 5) of my Novel. Yay!

    I'm taking the night off. I'm thinking of rewarding myself with sushi, and watching Lawrence of Arabia (which takes an entire night to do).

  18. Guys, I did it. I finally got to use a quote I have been banging around in my head for a month now. Someone said Happy Halloween to which I replied with a humbug. They asked why and I replied, "If I could work my will, every idiot who went about with Happy Halloween on his lips would be boiled with their own pumpkin spice and buried with a witch's broom through their heart." It was glorious.

    Thank you, bed bugs, for teaching me what vampire pee looks like. I'm sure that'll be useful in my writing. Hahahaha.......

    Oh God, I'm being serious. :sour:

    Blah.

    Inspiration has flagged. Energy is low. Novel is not as good as I'd like for it to be.

    Wondering if I should: just keep writing and try to push through, or, take a break - either not writing for a little while, or working on something else.

    Guess I'll start by trying to push through.

    (I'm remembering someone here who I don't know that said a few months back that writing a successful novel was really, really easy to do. For me, it is one of the most difficult things to do.)
