upon the shelf
Today was my last day in my library. It's slated for renovation, so even if I return when it reopens in 12-18 months, the library I've known will be gone. I'm feeling a little at loose ends---not quite sad, but also very aware that the place I've left is one which I will truly never see again. It's strange to know that at the outset.

...And, as Sev keeps reminding me, there's no guarantee they won't need me to assist in the packing up in a couple weeks, so I might very well see it again. In other words: enough moping, time for quizzes.

"I Will Always Love You"

You are selfless and caring. You often put the needs and feelings of your friends, family, or significant other before your own. You believe in true love, but you are a realist. You live by the saying, “If you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you, it’s yours forever. If it doesn’t then it was never meant to be.” People tend to gravitate toward you because of your kind nature and your ability to give great advice. You are very nostalgic and a great storyteller.
Which Dolly Parton Song Are You?

While I was personally hoping to be "Islands in the Stream," this result is definitely me. Except for the people gravitating to me part. To be fair, my failure in that regard may be due to the fact that I only have the mass one would expect from an average-sized woman...or to the sad truth that very few people are sensitive to my massive, and extremely compelling, psychic presence. Alas.


Wielders of purple-bladed lightsabers are more morally ambiguous than their fellow Jedi. Typically, purple-bladed saber wielders favor light-sided Force powers, but do not limit themselves to them, and can train in abilities that are sometimes looked down upon within Jedi orders. Wielders of purple-bladed lightsabers use their powers for good, but can be calculating and distrustful.
What Color Lightsaber Would You Wield?

I think I'd make an excellent Jedi, but I don't know how well I'd fit within an organized hierarchy of Jedi: I don't think I'd trust them to see things clearly. And with that in mind, I can definitely imagine teaching myself not-so-sanctioned skills and setting forth on the path of good with strategy and caution accompanying each step. As for purple? *So* flattering on me....


Gorgeous, driven, and professional, you’re the person people call when there’s a problem that needs sorting out or an important decision that needs deciding. You’re smart — scary smart — and are easily annoyed by people who aren’t on your level, although you never let it show. A gifted negotiator, quick thinker, and loyal friend, you’re the kind of person that people brag about knowing. Although you could take over the world if you set your mind to it, you prefer to be the invaluable person in the background responsible for making everything run smoothly. You’re basically Olivia Pope, but with healthy family and romantic relationships. Congrats.
Which Biblical Heroine Are You?

That is tremendously flattering...and, dare I say, rather true. I love problem solving; I am very smart---though I suspect my annoyance with people who aren't on my level *does* show---and while I've always known myself to be loyal and a quick thinker, I've recently had cause to discover a talent for negotiation too. And that whole thing about being the person in the background making things run smoothly? Absolutely.
