Ganked shamelessly from [livejournal.com profile] ysabetwordsmith :



I spotted this meme in honor of today's date: 10-10-10.  List 10 things (animals, plants, etc.) that you see in your local habitat.  If you don't have a yard, you can borrow a park or somesuch.



Crabapple tree, dandelion, wild rose bush, honeysuckle, squirrels, groundhogs (which climb trees and fences, who knew?), bluejays, teensy wild violets, walnut trees, and an armadillo.  No pear tree yet, nor partridge.

Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen books you've read that will always stick with you, for whatever reasons. This isn't your top 15 canon or even books you'd necessarily recommend, just books that have made their mark on you. First fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes. Mine are under the cut...

Your Name Comes from Saturn
You are a hard worker, and you take your responsibilities seriously.
Some people may find you to be cold, but your sense of humor is hard to pick up on at first.

You have always been an old soul, and you tend to be the teacher in most relationships.
You are often too hard on yourself but only because you are trying to be the best person possible.

That (above) was for my legal name (and, since I'm a Capricorn, and Cap. is ruled by Saturn...).
Now for my "real" name -- Zia:



Your Name Comes from Mars



You have a lot of fire in your heart, and you are highly competitive as a result.

You need to stay active and productive to be happy. You like to depend on yourself and yourself alone.



You can be jealous at times, and you don't trust others easily. You've been burned in the past, and you still feel it.

You tend to overwhelm people at first. You put it all out there, and your personality is a bit intimidating.

I changed a few things, but left the originals in.

7. Read more books than you did in 2008.
8. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
9. Sleep for 7 hours enough.

smile.

Personality:

14. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
15. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip.
16. Dream more while you are awake.

18. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner of
his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your
present happiness.
19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate

20. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.
21. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
22. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn.

32. Do the right thing!
33. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or

35. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
36. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
37. The best is yet to come.

You Are Belly Dancing



You are sensual and naturally sexy. Never trashy, though.

You are comfortable in your own skin. You don't have hangups about your body.



You are confident and playful. You love showing off.

You tend to be a little dominant and assertive... but only in a flirtatious way!

So [livejournal.com profile] miintikwa  gave me a B and I'm supposed to like 10 things of Bs.

Do YOU want a letter?

1)  Books!  and Books and books and books.

2)  BPAL.  'nuff said.

3)  Bees -- I'm allergic to getting stung, but I love honey and beeswax and flowers and being able to eat (which bees are important for!)

4)  Boots -- can't wear most b/c my calves are SO wide, but I really enjoy well-fitting leather boots.

5)  Batman.  Though I'm off Adam West. 

6)  Bar, chocolate type. 

7)  Bottles.  Old perfume bottles especially for pretty, or bottles like medicine used to come in that I can do things to.  (Take that any way you please.)

Pic: )

8)  Boys!  Or actually that would be Men! now, since "boys" would likely involve jail time for me.

9)  Butter on a Baked Potato.

10)   Being a Massage Therapist / Bodyworker.

Because the answers to THIS should be seriously interesting. *cue diabolical laughter*

If you saw ME in a police car, what would you think I got arrested for?

Answer me, then if you want, post to your own journal and see how many crimes you get accused of.

I tend to think I babble on about myself and everyone knows more about me and my business then they really want to. Some few have said different, at various times -- not that I don't babble, but the I haven't mentioned what they want to ask about.

So.

Ask.

I may answer here in comments, or in an email or PM if I don't want the whole world to know -- or I may, depending on the question, say N-O-Y-B! (Which may give you the answer right there!) But you've a darn good chance of getting the unvarnished truth.
