You are The Wheel of Fortune

Good fortune and happiness but sometimes a species of
intoxication with success

The Wheel of Fortune is all about big things, luck, change, fortune. Almost always good fortune. You are lucky in all things that you do and happy with the things that come to you. Be careful that success does not go to your head however. Sometimes luck can change.

I'm running a test to see who's reading my posts. So, if you read this, leave me a one-word comment about your day that starts with the third letter of your LJ USERNAME. Only one word please. Then repost so I can leave a word for you. Don't just post a word and not copy - that's not as much fun!

Your Soul's Spice is Lavender

You like and prefer solitude. You are your own best friend.

You have a lot of strength to give to others. You are an amazing caretaker to anyone who needs to be cared for.

You are constant, steady, and patient. You don't seek out change; you let it come to you.

You are conservative and down-to-earth. You hardly ever do anything crazy.

Leave a comment and:

• I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.

• Update your journal with the answers to the questions.

• Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions (but only if you want to).


It's been quite a while but better late than never :) )

I agree with the end result though wasn't aware I like Japanese art in particular. It's more what I don't like than what I do.

Also, carpet layers upstairs making busy sounds. Photos of the revamped little front room (the one with the Beatles' wallpaper) will be forthcoming as soon as husband fits the bookshelves. Exciting! So do I include a Japanese print now?

Your result for What Your Taste in Art Says About You Test...

Simple, Progressive, and Sensual

29 Ukiyo-e, 18 Islamic, 5 Impressionist, -24 Cubist, -29 Abstract and 17 Renaissance!

Ukiyo-e (浮世絵, Ukiyo-e), "pictures of the floating world", is a genre of Japaneseand paintings produced between the 17th and the 20th centuries. it mostly featured landscapes, historic tales, theatre, and pleasure. Ukiyo is a rather impetuous urban culture that has bloomed in popularity. Although the Japanese were more strict and had many prohibitions it did not affect the rising merchant class and therefore became a floating art form that did not bind itself to the normal ideals of society.

People that chose Ukiyo-e art tend to be more simplistic yet elegant. They don't care much about new style but are comfortable in creating their own. They like the idea of living for the moment and enjoy giving and receiving pleasure. They may be more agreeable than other people and do not like to argue. They do not mind following traditions but are not afraid to move forward to experience other ideas in life. They tend to enjoy nature and the outdoors. They do not mind being more adventurous in their sexual experiences. They enjoy being popular and like being noticed. They have their own unique style of dress and of presenting themselves. They may also tend to be more business oriented or at the very least interested in money making adventures. They might make good entrepreneurs. They are progressive and adaptable.

Comment here and I will give you a colour. Then, in your journal, list ten things you love that are that colour.

[ profile] bliss_amiss  has given me brown. Not in any particular order.

1. Jennet's natural hair colour. She has inherited my hair, brown and wavy, but has managed to grow it a lot longer than mine. I have not seen her lovely brown waterfall of hair for about 6 years. She dyed it black and has bleached sections and redyed them red or green or purple, she has shaved off sections and regrown it and she straightens it to within a millimetre of its life. Meanwhile, mine has distinguished silver streaks over my ears. The brown hair is so dark now that I lighten it every summer, sitting in the sun with Sun-In sprayed all over it.

2. Tea!!!!!! I cannot survive without it. I understand where Douglas Adams was coming from when he has Arthur Dent on a mission to find tea elsewhere in the galaxy.

3. Bare trees in winter, silhouetted against a grey sky, dead leaves underfoot.

4. Otters.

5. The dark wooden furniture in our home. We still have the same 3 piece suite, oak-framed with gold-brown velour upholstery. I bought that in a sale over 30 years ago for the princely sum of £399 back then when the pound was worth a pound. (Down from £799, I seem to remember.)

6. 'Golden Brown' by The Stranglers--one of my absolute favourites from the 80s.

7. My brown leather handbag that goes with me everywhere.

The last 3 could be a cheat because they are all food :D

8. Dark chocolate--Cadbury's Bournville (HANDS OFF, KRAFT!!!!!) though I don't eat as much as I used to, as I find the older I get, the less I crave chocolate--sad.

9. Roast beef well done with Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes and gravy!!

10. Parkin and bonfire toffee (I admit the toffee is almost black) on Guy Fawkes' Night, and jacket potatoes cooked in foil round the edge of the fire. I agree properly organised public displays are safer and the fireworks are more exciting but I bemoan the demise of the garden celebration because the food was always part of the fun.

[ profile] lady_absynthe   gave me pink. I am NOT Lady Penelope! But here goes:
1 Fingertips as seen through clear fingernails ... I love fingernail 'moons'.
2 The plump pink curves of a baby's bottom ... I've changed enough nappies (diapers) in my time
3 Tall, stately heads of foxglove flowers
4 My cosy bedsocks
5 The CD album 'Razorblade Romance' by HIM ... the album cover is pink (ideas are becoming tenuous because I can't think of many pink things)
6 My earings and necklace of pink glass beads because the beads were part of a broken necklace of my grandmother's and I had them remade into something more modern.
7 A pair of the palest pink suede high heels that I wore to my brother's wedding. I don't wear high heels anymore but I haven't thrown them away because I like them.
8 My favourite lipsticks are more pink than red ... sort of crimson.
9 Roast ham
10 Any man who has the guts to wear pink. The old 'Brothers' TV show had the wonderful line, "It takes a real man to wear pink!"
