Not quite ID

You are an atheist evolutionist. You do not believe
that anything supernatural is required to

brought to you by Quizilla

Not quite how I really feel, but I do admire Chuck Darwin quite a bit.
I wonder how he would feel about my calling him Chuck?

I think I must be THAT girl...

Amazing what google can do. I am indeed the girl that grew up in exotic places. Sometimes I think that this man is the biggest goofball in the world. But it may be the case that I am. I still don't understand what the tension is between this man and myself, but it is still there, haunting me from obscure corners of my subconscious. I know I love my husband, and I wonder if it is a betrayal that I still think of this man. I don't think so... mainly because this man, Andrew, is about as selfish as they come. When we gave our relationship one last try, he blew it. I just wonder why he could never be honest with me, I learned to be honest with him.
Anyway, about those long lost forgotten loves, I will never forget this one... but I am soooooo glad I am married to the man I am as he is honest and somehow manages to complete me in ways I never thought possible. Schatz, if you ever find this and read it.... know that I love you with my whole entire heart and that I am so grateful that I could bear you our lovely and delightful son and that I would never leave you to go back to this man.

other biographers?

I knew I was fast but that fast....

Via Mrs. Ootfp

You're a Cheetah!

You are fast. Really fast. So fast, in fact, that many people may never see you as you pass them by. You definitely have your soft spots, or maybe just a lot of spots in general. You'd like to think of them as freckles. When others say your name very quickly, you think they're accusing you of something.

at the Blue Pyramid.

Very interesting.

Here is the beginning of my post.

And here is the rest of it.


and yet another quiz...

You scored as Classical Liberal. You are a classical liberal. You are sceptical about much of the historicity of the Bible, and the most important thing Jesus has done is to set us a good moral example that we are to follow. Doctrines like the trinity and the incarnation are speculative and not really important, and in the face of science and philosophy the surest way we can be certain about God is by our inner awareness of him. Discipleship is expressed by good moral behaviour, but inward religious feeling is most important.

Classical Liberal


Roman Catholic




Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan


Neo orthodox


Modern Liberal




Reformed Evangelical




What's your theological worldview?
created with
hmmmmm......... emergent PoMo no less.... what is up with that.

You are a Tortured Conceptual Artist. Your fellow

You have the Vermeer girl look. A Vermeer girl
appealed mostly to the old masters of the Dutch
school, who painted pictures of everyday life
as they knew it. With her fine, fair skin, she
suited a light, natural, dewy make-up. The
Vermeer Girl loved homely things, such as
homemade soaps and candles. The following
artists would have liked to paint you; Pieter
de Hooch and Jan Vermeer.
