Is It Me....or Not?

Okay, so floating around blogland, has been a really fun birthday month meme, and I even though often, I am dodging tags, this time, I was sort of interested in giving it a whirl. Alas.....no one has tagged me. Tonight I totally lucked out when The Rotten Correspondent opened it up to whomever wanted to play. I was all...."pick me....pick me!"
***edited to add that literally 10 minutes after I posted this, I was reading the always fabulous Troy, and he had tagged me. That rocks!***

Here are the instructions:

1. Mention the person who tagged you and create a link back to them.
2. Copy-paste the traits for all the twelve months.
3. Pick your month of birth.
4. Highlight the traits that apply to you.
5. Tag 12 people and let them know by visiting their blogs and leaving a
comment for them.
6. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve done it!

Here we go....I am a September baby. This past Fall I celebrated the 3rd anniversary of my 30th birthday. The following traits are suppose to describe me....let's just take a look.

1. Suave and compromising- ummmm the fact that I had to look up the meaning of BOTH of these terms makes me think......"NO!" I am not at all sophisisticated or smooth. I were....I just might be able to figure out what exactly compromising means. sigh....

2. Careful, cautious and organized- Do these three words even go together? I am certainly careful....and quite cautious...but organized....Puuuuuleeeeze! I am sooooooooooooo not organized.

3. Likes to point out people’s mistakes- To be honest....I might notice the mistakes....but I don't usually like to draw attention to them.

4. Likes to criticize- I am successfully winning this battle. Again...I notice...but don't like to say anything.

5. Stubborn- Not at all.

6. Quiet but able to talk well- tee hee....well....let's just say they sat me by the hearing impaired child in first grade in hopes that I would STOP.TALKING! I struggle daily with controlling my motor mouth. I like to think that what comes out of my never stifled mouth is worth listening too, but I fear....sometimes it is not. sigh....

7. Calm and cool- I'd say I am neither calm nor exciteable.....neither cool nor hot. I am usually somewhere in between.

8. Kind and sympathetic- Whew....finally one that is completely correct. I am sometimes overly sympathetic, and find myself feeling the emotions of even fictitious characters much too deeply.

9. Concerned and detailed- about what? I don't get this one either. Maybe there will be one saying, "airheaded and braindead."

10. Loyal but not always honest- Yup....I'll stick by you, but I won't tell you that your pants make your butt look big. Sorry.

11. Does work well- I'd like to think so. I have potential....I do know that.

12. Very confident- Depends on what we are talking about...but as I age, I find myself being less and less sure of myself. I'm working on that.

13. Sensitive- In a good way, but not overly sensitive such that I am easily offended.

14. Good memory- Okay...so seriously...was I born in the right month? I have the WORST memory EVER. I will tell myself at the mailbox that as soon as I get in the house, I need to do something, and literally 2 minutes later....it is gone....gone....gone....like I remember 3 days later gone. ugh....

15. Clever and knowledgeable- I think we established that this isn't quite true with the fact that I have had to look up at least 4 of these words already.

16. Loves to look for information- Why yes.....yes I do. I have a webMD.

17. Must control oneself when criticizing- Okay, I may have a bad memory, but didn't we cover this already?????

18. Able to motivate oneself- Ummm yeah....sometimes. I am rocking the "no chocolate in Januray" thing....so that counts right?

19. Understanding- Some would say to a fault.

20. Fun to be around- Well...I don't want to toot my own horn....but yeah....I am freakin fun.

21. Secretive- Can a person even be secretive when they never shut up?

22. Loves leisure and traveling- Leisure.....yes! Traveling.....NO! I'm a homebody. Does it count though that I WANT to want to travel? I really want to, really....I do.

23. Hardly shows emotions- I'm an open book. What my mouth doesn't say...my face let's it show.

24. Tends to bottle up feelings- With numbers 6, 8, 13, 19, 21, and 23....I really doubt it.

25. Very choosy, especially in relationships- Mostly no....but I really try to surround myself with people that look to the positive, and want to build people up, not tear them down. So if a person starts to be toxic for me, I will painfully let them go. Life is to short to spend time in unhealthy relationships. However, I try to love everyone for who they are, and gently encourage them to be the best they can be.

26. Systematic- Great....we just had to end on another one to make me feel like an idiot!

I'd say on a whole...this description is totally off the mark for me, but I wasn't able to fit well into any of the other descriptions either. Is it just me...or are they a tad on the negative side?

Now for the tagging. I really want to read harrass the following people with this meme:

you not only rocked the 'no chocolate' (you AWESOME chocoNOT), you rocked this meme!

this was really good. and number 3 and 4 sound like your evil twin. you know, the opposite of you. how can someone say you are 3, 4 AND 8? who did this? let's find them and make them stand in the way of the chocolate throwing coming from avery and missburrows (and now loveyh and sybil)

the 'fun' one? i *know* that you are 'freakin' fun.' :)

you forgot the 'click me' reminder! i clicked you!

Mama Zen said...

This is pretty cool. Because of the gorgeous pictures that you take, I imagine you as being detail oriented.

mrs. parker said...

I would have to disagree with #15- you are extremely clever, this post was well done & fun to read. although I'm a little shocked to discover there are actually people trying to go a whole month without chocolate- and (gasp) actually might succeed. In an attempt to lose my holiday(if the "holiday" started in October) pounds i figure I'll cut to chase and just cut out anything that isn't chocolate. ;)

Donetta said...

Come visit I have a "dose" for you.

jennwa said...

That is very interesting. I always enjoy seeing how people think of themselves.

Autumn said...

Hmmmm are you sure you were born in September? LOL
Just think if everyone that was born in a certain month acted the same?? That would be kind of freaky.
Ok so you tagged me, I'll try it but I'm sure I won't be as clever as you.

Autumn said...

Ok, I did it. Not nearly as well as you but I did it none the less! BTW... did you get snow?

The Rotten Correspondent said...

Great answers, even if you didn't feel like many of them were "you"!

MamaGeek said...

Oh that was good September Mama! It's exactly how I pictured you. Oh and I also have a little blog bling awaiting you over at my place.

childlife said...

I was cracking up at your "pick me... pick me..."

This was a fun read Corey! I agree... I think they were a tad on the negative side - especially for you ; )

Jo Beaufoix said...

Corey I love that you did this. We are so alike, and I agree, these are pretty negative. Mine were crazy and at times so contradictory.

I'm with Holl, let's find the writer and thow chocolate at them.

Donetta said...

I was born in May that is one strange meme.
