My Chinese Name means "Beautiful Moon"

I Know this should go to MaydenPersona...but I just had to post this on the main page!!! I'll probably move it in the near future :)

Thanks to "SJ" for the link :)

You Are From the Moon

You can vibe with the steady rhythms of the Moon.
You're in touch with your emotions and intuition.
You possess a great, unmatched imagination - and an infinite memory.
Ultra-sensitive, you feel at home anywhere (or with anyone).
A total healer, you light the way in the dark for many.

X, my friend, as well as Schaumi and Lux, won't be surprised by this test result :)

Silly me. I thought it was "Gung Show Ping".

Loosely translated, it means "Gone Shopping".

schaumi said...

nope, not surprised at all, cora:)

Mayden's Voyage said...

PW- O- you are so funny. Maybe you and Crash can be a comedy duo! :P

Schamumi- :) Thanks :)

Well, looks as though someone downgraded Pluto to a dwarf, and upgraded Luna to a planet.

Incidentally, the word "lunatic" means literally, someone affected by the moon:-)

What are you referring to by Chinese name? The phonetic pronunciation of Cora in Mandarin or Sezchuan?

Actually, I regad all moons as beautiful....Unless there's hair on them.

schaumi said...

luxlucisvita said...

ps: yes..I am not surprised at all that you are from the moon...


do you still have a little left of that thing you were drinking before you had your bubble bath??

Lee said...

Me? Mars? I don't think so!

"You're energetic, althletic, and totally hyperactive.
You love playing sports and being in the middle of all of the action.
You're independent, corageous, and brave. Unafraid to do things your way.
Mars can be reckless, quick tempered, and a little too spontaneous.
So think before you act - and resist your natural urges to dominate others."

luxlucisvita said...

ey!...schaumi is awake...lee is awake...and so am I...but me gots to make dinner now...ciao!!

Oh if I only had a nickle for every time someone has asked me "what planet...?"

(Sorry, I'm not able to log in to comment at the moment.)

puerileuwaite said...

FM, I would love to write comedy for a living. Knowing Crash, he's already stealing my good stuff (if I have any).

BTW, was your "What Planet are You From?" feature meant as a slap at me? Your the 3rd person this week to ask me that question. Just wondering.

/t. said...

i wonder
if anyone
is from earth

K9 said...

/bark bark bark

i was uranus! (natch) figures since i am the king of steaming hot browns...they gotta come from somewhere. hate these damn tests! when i did the muppet one i was the "animal" the only one with violence as a descriptor. hey!

my test reminds me of an old joke:

what do the starship Enterprise and toliet paper have in common?

they circle around uranus searching for klingons!

am guessing
k9 got such a howl
out of that trek joke
that he just wanted
to tell it 3 times

mayden, sorry, but i won't be taking the test, having been abducted by... them... as a child -- just brings back too many scary memories for me...


Mayden's Voyage said...

X~ :) I wanted to have a stamp made with my Chinese name on it- but the man who was making the stamp could not translate "Cora". So instead he decided that my face reminded him of a beautiful moon (pale, round-smiling?)- and gave me the Chinese name for that (which, I am sad to say, I don't remember exactly what that was).

I was very flattered by the name the man gave me until I came home and tried to explain it to my friends/family. I was the "butt" of several jokes for awhile :)

I agree- a hairy moon is not pretty! :)

Lux- DId you ever read "The Greatest Christmas Pagent Ever"? is WONDERFUL- and the little girl who plays Mary is so unfit, so unruly, so PERFECT for the role! I'm sorry it was never yours. If I ever put on a production of the Christmas story- I know who will be Mary :)
I did go back and re-read through your blog- I hope I didn't miss anyhing :)

Schaumi- Pluto? Oh- I think you have to post that one! :)

Lux- Canadian Whisky and diet coke- makes a lovely drink for bubble baths :)

Lee- I always thought you posessed the powers of seduciton...the way you woo is quite charming. I have been smitten with your words on more than on occasion :)

Anon..."Planet Cool Guy, who doesn't always have to be right, does the laundry and cooks dinner"-
That is where you are from! :)

PW- I love comedy. Speaking of funny things- and NOT funny...have you updated that blog of yours yet? If you think I'm going to scroll through 200+ replies- think again! :)

/t- it's all a big fantasy...we're actually all from Canada :)

K9- Is there no end to how adorable you are? Smooch! I suppose one could say that Uranus and the Moon have a lot in common??? A lovely fit, I'd say:) (ummm- nothing kinky was even remotely implied in that commment:)

Better than being Mars (the god of war) or Venus (the chick planet)-

/t...I already know where you are from :) Canada! Eh! Tell me your troubles- being the oldest of 6 kids I can tell you I would have GLADLY gone with the aliens if they had come for me...but none ever did! :P

/t. said...

to you yanks,
from canada
is an alien

actually, you maybe are not far wrong about that...


rachel said...

I'm worried about doing it in case i turn out to be a control freaking lunatic - which i am not. Great idea Cora

luxlucisvita said...

good morning " beautiful moon!!"...:))

I'm off to school now..will write to you later to relate some dramatic antics that happened last night in this side of the moon,,,

hey...speaking of was shinning really pretty bright last night...'xept that big rain clouds covered it up round midnight....

Crashtest Comic said...

My chinese name means:

"Pock-marked Moon."

ThursdayNext said...

Indeed, Cora, you are like the Goddess Artemis: you have the spirit of a hunter, the passion of a protector, and the beauty of a goddess. :)

Sean said...

not-interesting-geek-trivia. i think i read that that photo was actually turned on it's side so people could relate to it better.

Bird said...

i think we need more planets.

that test doesn't have mine.


The Grunt said...

I have no idea what my name is in Chinese. I hear that I am a god in Micronesia, though.

Anonymous said...

My Chinese name means "Dog who stops to sniff far too often", with the alternate meaning, "Who, Me?"

Valerie - Riding Solo said...

it says saturn, which is my birth planet, I still think it is Fanasoid Rock, my home planet.

Libby said...

mayden - the moon is SO you! calming, something to just look at, & think about everything...and it always helps! by the i the only one who is mercury?? scary!

firebird said...

Thanks, I had fun with this test!

I got Pluto, like Schaumi, so here is the text:

***You Are From Pluto***

You are a dark, mysterious soul, full of magic and the secrets of the universe.
You can get the scoop on anything, but you keep your own secrets locked in your heart.
You love change and you use it to your advantage, whether by choice or chance.
You don't like to compromise, to the point of being self-destructive with your stubborness.
Live life with love, and your deep powers will open the world to you.

I was on the fence about two of the answers, so I redid the test the other way, and came out "the Moon". I wasn't surprised, since the new answers were more romantic...

Mayden's Voyage said...

/t...I think it is considered rude to call a southerner a "Yank"...but since you are an alien, I'll forgive you immediately- suga' :) teasing you!)

Rachel...we can be lunatic's together! :) And personally, I think we'd hav a lot of fun! :)

Lux- I sent you a note- beautiful friend!!! :)

Crash- EEEWWWWWWW! Do they make Proactive for that sort of thing?

Miss E- How did I ever come to deserve a freind like you? :) I read your blog and saw those pictures and you almost had me in tears! :) Bravo! It is an awesome thing to love so deeply...and all children should have no less!

Sean- forgive me for being absent at your place. I have been reading from time to time...I need to pick it back up! JL4 left a nice reply at his blog- I hope you saw it.

Grunt, you have any idea how much I think of you? How often I wonder how you are and wish we were closer? I worry about you dude! god in Micronesia!
Are you going to send me your address so I can send you a magnet?
Send me a friends address if you think I'm gonna stalk you or something! (PROMISE- I won't!)

Anon- LOL :) Smooch to you, whoever you are!

Val- I love it! I read your blog over the weekend...I was kind of bummed over part of it- but it sounded like you had a good trip.
I'll comment soon :)

Libby- you are so sweet. I know that if I lived in Ohio we would be friends! You remind me of an older sister- did you know my dad's family was from Indiana?

Firebird...I am in good company with you and Schaumi! Thank you, so much, for posting those results!
