I'm going to start a new game I guess you can call it.  Can you describe yourself  in one word? I want to get to know you guys better and this mite help. So give your word and if you like your reasons why you picked that word. Mine is....

aDORKable

I saw this word to describe the girl from the TV show New Girl on the FOX channel. It fit me perfectly!!

I guess I would have to pick ....

.... dependable

I've taken a zillion personality tests for work and this word always comes up at the top.

Not sure if I like it or not....it carries a lot of responsibility that I don't always want.

@gothiclovemonkey I glad you like my word. ;D  I'm a little curious too, that's how I found this site.

@RichardMEL I actually like the show cuz I'm kind like the main girl..I'm just sweet and at times completely clueless. Your word cracked me up! I'm going to have to watch out for you. JK  :rofl;

@galvo you got it! lol

@chook Sure you can have blonde but I see it as a good thing cuz blondes do have more fun!  :)

@cattlekid I think its a good word and it great to know people can count on you.

@conchman I saw the movie Avatar but I don't remember that. What does that mean?

Annig83 Thats really awesome you can paint and draw. My creative side is only when I decorate rooms. And you know Lamorne? Wow, nice..Hey if you still talk with him let him know I really do enjoy the show. One day I want to actually meet Zooey Deschanel, (Jess).

I can't have caffiene and when I did because no other choice in drink, it was bad, bad, bad feeling. My transplant center has me only drinking decaf products with their reasoning that caffeine raises blood pressure and constricts blood vessels and they want the pancreas to last, not to mention kidney. I have been a coffeeholic since I was a kid, longer than chocolate. Bought a Keurig with a gift card, just haven't taken it out of my trunk yet due to being to worn down by the time I get home. Also have espresso machine and a regular coffee maker. ;D
