I apologize.  I went to coffee shops.  I opened the post editor and stared.  Nothing.  For THREE days!  So I am sorry.

And today isn't much different, but I am forcing a bit.  So here is a bit of a something.  A silly quiz and a hello and an I'm sorry.  I truly am.  I'll get it back. I really will.

Take the Butterfly Test

You Are Blunt Yet Charming
You tell it like it is, and you don't mince words. You speak your mind, and you use a lot of colorful language
This sort of brutal honesty would put most people off, but for some reason, it only makes you more charming.
You live life exactly how you want to - no apologies. You act quickly and decisively. And you don't second guess yourself.
By being assertive, you have gained the respect of many. People may not agree with you all the time, but they do admire you.

  1. I took the test:

    You Are Intense Yet Happy
    You are a pretty tightly wound person. You can be extremely passionate and dedicated.
    And while you definitely have a lot of intensity, you don't take yourself too seriously. You still have a good time.

    Whoever first said "Work hard - play hard" was thinking of someone exactly like you. That's pretty much your personal motto.
    You never do anything half way. You always go full force - whether you're working or having fun.

    Yeah, that sounds like me!

  2. I took the test - and I'm the same as you Michele - yep, blunt yet charming - that'd be me.
    Worry not about your blogging buddies - she said bluntly - you are loved and can take all the time you need or want!

  3. Sometimes it just doesn't come to you...

  4. I'm mellow, yet energetic. :)

    Just take a little break! We'll be here when you get back.

    Mystery Writing is Murder

  5. To soften any critique or put down, just throw in, bless your heart. As in, Young lady, bless your heart, let's just pull that skirt down a tad.

    Hang in there. This too shall pass.

    Straight From Hel

  6. It must be spring fever. I'm having a terrible time coming up with blog topics, and what I post seems incredibly boring. Maybe I should follow your lead and take a break.

  7. Diane- Sounds about right, from what I can gather!

    Jan- I could have guessed that about you. And thank you. This statement above all others makes me feel comfort.

    Alex- Yeah, but how will I ever finish this MS?

    Elizabeth- Perfect description! And thank you.

    Helen- As in less leg or more midriff? :)

    Patricia- It was less a decision than overwhelming apathay. Is that a paradox?

  8. Hi Michele,
    Honestly, let yourself have a bit of down time, you deserve it.
    When the muse comes to visit again you'll be as energetic as ever.


    Publish or Perish

  9. Relax - you don't have to blog every day - it's supposed to be for fun! No worries :)

    I'm apparently Whimsical yet elegant. Who knew? :)
