my robot thingy

I normally ignore these annoying quiz things but I'm bored! Here's what robot I am.

Yesterday I bought lots of CDs. Quasi, Le Tigre, the Jayhawks, Magnetic Fields, and Paul Westerberg, to name a few. I wish I just had 3 days to sit with a friend and listen to music and talk about it and do nothing else. I need to buy trashy boots for my halloween costume as well as a fake ponytail. Walking into work tonight, I remembered a time a few weeks ago when I saw a praying mantis on the sidewalk. I squatted down to look at it. People sitting in the nearby coffee place probably thought I was a loon, but as I moved back and forth, I could see its tiny head following me. It was so cute. It was actually quite beautiful. But yeah, the halloween costume, I'm going to be the dumb blonde one of Josie and the Pussycats from the movie. It's kind of appropriate, because sometimes I am just really ditzy. And I love animals.


It's funny... I just spoke with someone who is an old friend, and in a way an old enemy. He doesn't understand how attractive he is. I hate to see people so caught up in this obsession with appearance. I know how it feels though. I am still learning, but I think I can see beauty in people in a different way. I hope I can, anyways. I wish I could explain it, it's like I look at someone who is not beautiful by the western standard, but I can see this amazing beauty in their shoulders, or their eyes... well whatever. If I go on it will sound stupid and trite.

That's a good thing to learn, to find beauty in many things. I have my weaknesses - I tend towards slightly built women and some similar men (which may explain why I prefer smaller busts - more androgeny?). But it is typically the attitude and mind that attracts me - especially when it's a particular blend of sarcasm and vulnerability.

Thank goodness I found my K long ago, and that we were compatible; my ego could never withstand seeking those whom I find attractive in that way.

indeed...
That's why my engagement breaking up is so hard. I thought I was finished looking for someone. It's hard and I don't want to have to do it again, I don't want to go through it all again. But my post wasn't so much about finding a partner, although your comment brings that to mind. Hrmm. I guess I do have a really fragile ego. Agh!
