My First Meme?

Through Ravelry, I started reading Kent's blog entry for today. It begins: "I think I'm trying to escape my knitting. projects..."

I think I'm trying to escape my blogging a bit longer. So here goes what I think is my first meme. (I didn't go back and look, but I have a vague recollection that I might have done one before?....)

Before the meme, I will say that I have been knitting. Am about to finish a whimple/smoke ring design in a handspun fiber from Earthtones. And I've finally completed both sleeves and the plackets on the Siberian Collared Cardi. I'm set to reknit the peplum and that baby is ready for pattern writing. More soon....

What Allison Means

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow.
You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily.
Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.
You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.

You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

You are well rounded, with a complete perspective on life.
You are solid and dependable. You are loyal, and people can count on you.
At times, you can be a bit too serious. You tend to put too much pressure on yourself.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.

Two things to note: 1) this person sounds like a split personality ("You are relaxed, chill/You tend to be tightly wound"). So, are all the personalities this pathological? Or is that just me being prone to paranoia again? And, 2) Many of these same paragraphs came up for the names Nicole, Kent, Rhianna, Mary... Actually, there only seem to be about 8 or 10 paragraphs that get applied to any name. Kind of takes the fun out of it. Oh, well. I'm probably just being too serious now.....
