Weird Patriotism & Some Beachy Stuff

This would not be the person I'd like to see performing the National Anthem.

Kazoo in the Hooha - video powered by Metacafe







What the Beach Test Says About You



You like people, but you're careful about who you get close to. Friendship is important to you... so important that you aren't just friends with anyone. (But you? You're VERY special.)



You fall in love with ease and confidence. Even if you've had bad experiences in the past, each new love is a reason to start completely over. (You make it sound like I have a long line of lovers.)



You are deeply passionate about several things in your life. You're not passionate about much... and the few passions you have are truly obsessions. (You say obsession like it's a bad thing. Doesn't everyone want to bathe in melted chocolate before they die?)



Your sense of humor is intellectual and obscure. Only really well educated people get your jokes. (I know my Cutter number and it's an inside joke with a dear friend. Yeah, that is seriously geeky.)








What Your Flip Flops Say About You



You are an outdoorsy person. You feel most comfortable in nature.

Beautiful scenery and good weather always brighten up your day. (Poster child for Seasonal Affective Disorder here.)



Being outside allows you to feel calm and connected to the world.

Problems don't seem so big when you realize how small you are in the scheme of things. (Ultimately we all wind up dead one way or another. There now, don't you feel better?)



Your ideal warm weather place: Costa Rica (Though I hear Belize is pretty nice too.)








You Are a Retro Bikini!



You prefer a bikini that's flirty and feminine, not flashy.

You look sweet and sexy - a rarity on the beach these days!

(I've never in my life appeared in public in a bikini. It's about the most unflattering look for myself I could imagine. Ten pounds of s*** stuffed into a 5 pound bag. No thanks. I'd sooner drop the pretense and just let it all hang out.)








You Should Spend Your Summer at the Beach



You're a free spirit who is always thinking of new ways to have fun.

And you don't just love summer... you live for it.

So, you really should blow off your responsibilities and head to the beach!
(Well, now who am I to argue with such a directive? Have fun all! Hold down the fort till I make it back on Monday!)

Ok, so the anthem thing was a bit odd, lol. I still laughed though. :D

barman said...

Have an awesome time a the beach. I shall do some time at a pool, no sand in the cracks you see...

Come back with batteries all charged and ready for more Lime miss-adventure...

barman said...

OMG, I just saw the clip. So many things wen through my mind before she got started. And in the end, that was just weird. But yes, I did laugh. Wow. Thanks.

furiousBall said...

i'm a little confused, i'm a retro bikini too

Fred said...

Oh, my.....

I don't do tests during the summer. Just the word alone makes me cringe.

Jericho said...

ok, I laughed, despite the skepticism.
Would love to be hanging at the beach with ya!

S said...

Could you email and explain what the hell that woman is doing? First of all, what did she put up there, and where? I cannot see that small!

And how boring was that womans life before she figured that game out huh?
:P

mssolitaire said...

Yay for the beach!!! I'm envious! ;) Have a wonderful (must needed) rest and I can't wait to hear the stories when you come back! :)

Happy 4th!

Rob said...

God bless America! Glad I served proudly to defend the right of all people to express themselves with eloquence and grace! That was just classic (not classy, but classic)! I have no regrets that I will never get those 2 minutes back; nosiree, no regrets at all!

Have a relaxing, restful, reinvigorating stay at the beach, Michelle -- and a safe journey to and from. We'll miss your wit and wisdom (not to mention your smiling face), but I know I speak for many when I say that you deserve this break and I hope you enjoy it to the fullest! Godspeed, lovely Lime...

lecram said...

Have fun at the beach! LOL! I am so stealing that video!

Craver Vii said...

My flip-flops place me in Hawaii. I could use a pair of those flip-flops in January!!!!

RennyBA said...

Patriotism or not; what a great way to play the horn :-) I guess it would go perfect with the Norwegian national song too!

SignGurl said...

Have a great escape!

DianeCA said...

I took all the tests, I am a retro bikini too! My beach test was spot on and my flip flops are hot orange...I am a very outgoing person. Fun stuff. Except it says I should be in LA which is wayyy far away from Norway!! Great summer theme.

snowelf said...

This Limer got the same beach as you.

And these flip flops:

You are crazy, and mostly in a good way.
You have wild ideas, many of which seem drug induced.

You are open to new experiences, and you are a bit of a drifter.
You're never sure what you'll be doing tomorrow.. and you like it that way.

Your ideal warm weather place: the Gold Coast of Australia

Nice!

I got designer bikini and told I should spend my summer at the beach.

Not a bad idea if I don't say so myself :)

Have a great time!!!

I think I dated her in college...

KB said...

This is my first vist and I must say, you have much to say for somebody who is 251, hehe!

Mona said...

Beach... I have some weird memories of a beach, where I lost my underclothing in the huge incoming wave...

The video clip was hilarious! :D

VE said...

Can I be her personal music instructor?

MyUtopia said...

Interesting summer quiz results.

Suldog said...

Geez, I know I commented earlier, Lime, but it's not here. I sense a conspiracy...

Anyway, I love that kazoo performance. Being a musician myself, I wish I could see the technique a bit more closely, of course.

Have a great happy and safe Independence Day!

cathy said...

Have a good weekend.

Jocelyn said...

Make sure you take off that retro bikini (I'm with you on the "never will this body wear one, as a public service") before you dive into the vat of melted chocolate.

KFarmer said...

Do you think that lady really could do that? LOL!! My gosh the things people come up with...

Have fun in the sun sweet one. Forget your cares and woes and in the sand, bury your toes :)

Mona said...

Happy 4th July Lime! :)

Palm Springs Savant said...

Lime, that was just the wierdest thing I have ever seen!

It\'s A Secret said...

The video was a riot!!

Happy 4th of July!!

xoxo

Rebicmel said...

Lime stopped by to say have a great rest. OMG what was that woman thinking and I can't believed I watched it......urmmm and laughed...

DianeCA said...

Happy Independence day!! Just had to see that 'music video' one more time LOL

RennyBA said...

Happy 4th of July, all the way from Norway!

okay, I posted a comment on here but Blogger must have ate it so here is another...

WHAT THE BEACH TEST SAYS ABOUT YOU.
You like people, but you're careful about who you get close to. Friendship is important to you... so important that you aren't just friends with anyone.

You fall in love with ease and confidence. Even if you've had bad experiences in the past, each new love is a reason to start completely over.

You are deeply passionate about several things in your life. You're not passionate about much... and the few passions you have are truly obsessions.

Your sense of humor is goofy and silly. You are good at making almost anyone laugh.


WHAT YOUR FLIP FLOPS SAY ABOUT YOU.
You are a very sweet and sensitive person.
You connect with other people easily.

You're the type of person who feels bad about killing bugs.
You hate to see anyone - or anything - in pain.

Your ideal warm weather place: Thailand

YOU ARE A HALTER BIKINI
You're an athletic girl with a hot athletic bod to match.
And you've got a great tan, probably from all those beach volleyball games! (I actually hate halter tops and my bod is not as athletic as this quiz says but I will accept it anyway..heehee)

YOU SHOULD SPEND YOUR SUMMER AT THE BEACH
You're a free spirit who is always thinking of new ways to have fun.
And you don't just love summer... you live for it.
So, you really should blow off your responsibilities and head to the beach!(next Saturday I am going to do just that, blow off my responsibilities and head to the beach for a week and a half!)

Hope you are having a great weekend!

Happy Independence Day!

david mcmahon said...

The flip-flop test is great!

Maddy said...

Hmm, that's what they must mean by 'hidden talents!'
Cheers

Rob said...

You know, it just occurred to me -- after contemplating that music video over the weekend -- I sure hope no one else shares her kazoos the way we used to in grade school! ;-)

Looking forward to your return, Limey; but hope you're enjoying every last glorious minute of your time at the beach!

You fall in love with ease and confidence. Even if you've had bad experiences in the past, each new love is a reason to start completely over.

You are a passionate person. You are free wheeling, fun loving, and ruled by your emotions.

Your sense of humor is goofy and silly. You are good at making almost anyone laugh.


The beach test was right on target for me.

The Zombieslayer said...

Now, that was weird. I'm thinking it was faked though.

Bunny said...

That video is hilarious!

We scored the same on the first and third tests. I find quite often that you and I score the same or very similar on these tests. Interesting.

Hope you had a fabulous long weekend!

Blither said...

You are super laid back and peaceful. Not much disturbs you.
You're content with what you have in life, and you can't stand feeling worked up.

A lot of good things tend to come your way in life...
You're not too busy or stressed to let an opportunity pass you by.

Your ideal warm weather place: Hawaii

FYI- None of the flip-floppity's had sparkles? WTF.

CrazyCath said...

Weird stuff Lime! Those tests are fun too. I've borrowed them for a future blog if that's ok. We are the same bikini - but like you I do not agree with their "sweet and sexy"! lol
