More Mild Than Wild...

You Are More Mild Than Wild

You're confident, and you really aren't concerned with how "hot" you are.

Other people's ideas of what's sexy don't concern you. And this is exactly what makes you attractive.

I took the "Are You Hot" test and the results are that I'm not that hot. But that's ok - like the Blogthing says, other people's ideas of what's sexy don't concern me. :-)
I actually took this "test" a few days ago. Tonight, I was reading Norma's blog and her post made me think of this Blogthing.
When you're a teenager and you're not one of the cool kids, you still want to be one (at least a little bit). You try to do little things to make you cooler - even though it'll never work. I mean really, the only time a teenager changes their social status drastically, is in the movies!
I was never one of the cool kids. I'm not very good at mindlessly following people. I never had the latest styles. I'm very much an introvert, so heavy partying never appealed to me.
But now. Now I'm older. And now I don't really care what others think. I do what I like to do (knit, read) and I spend time with people I like to be around. It doesn't matter if other people think it's odd that I knit everywhere I go. Any time I'm out somewhere, knitting, I run across another knitter (or someone who'd like to knit) - and I know that they get it.
Well, time for bed. The QP's Brownie troop is in a parade tomorrow and guess who is walking along with them, pulling a wagon? Yep. Me. Yippee! 1st, 2nd & 3rd graders, walking miles & carrying flags. Should be interesting.
MAKE it a great day!

I trot around with my knitting too and get the funniest looks. Oh well, like you, I do what I want, when I want and how I want, no matter what others say. What makes us feel good is what matters.

Thanks for sharing this fun link - oops, I "play it cool". Hmmm... not true, I think. In the contrary, I do share your views on the "cool" thing absolutely. I certainly did everything to be the absolute coolie when I was young, but it hardly ever worked - and with getting older (and that's the great thing with getting older I think) things just get so much calmer. We just grow to accept who we are, what we are, how we look and don't mind anymore what others think - the latter is still a tad of a problem for me, but I'm working on that! Your posting sure made me think a lot - thanks for that!
