Flower Names  
Well, I've come up with an idea. I'm going to dissect my flower name and figure out what it represents about me. I mean... we wouldn't have picked them for no reason! You guys should do the same!!

Daffodil: By going to this site, I learned a few quick things about daffodils. First off, they are spring bloomers, and lo, I was a spring baby! Second, when they are dying, their petals can be used in potpouri, and the scent is said to have a calming effect on the mind. As we all know, I love to listen to people's problems and try to help them find solutions. Also, the latin word for the daffodil, narcissus, is where the english word "narcist" originated from.

Barn (can use the whole word, or split it into two if possible): Farm building that houses ranch animals/supplies. I always did want enough land to have some horses on, so I guess I would need a barn!

Barnacle: Barnacles are sea animals, however they are still clasified as arthropods (same group as spiders and insects). They live by clinging to a rocky surface and waiting for the tide to bring them their food. When they tide is up, they stick out some little hair like feeding limbs that help direct food into the mouth. Well, if my friends are the rock, then I certaintly cling to them, not letting the tide of distance let us grow further apart! If you're interested in where found this fascinating information, you can go here.

That was fun, and took maybe five minutes. :) Ah, and I am always the college student, citing my sources and everything.

I am also in love with waltzes now. If you can, download Johann Strauss' Emperor Waltz. It's a lovely piece.
Current Mood: creative

Pansy Fan Fandango
OK, I am taking your advice, Slim.

Pansy Fan Fandango...

Pansy: It is a "large-flowered garden plant derived chiefly from the wild pansy of Europe and having velvety petals of various colors." Well, I'd say I can be plenty vivid and colorful, especially in personality! And my skin is velvety soft ;) . I don't know if "large-flowered" means anything...no jokes, now.

Fan: It's "a device for creating a current of air or a breeze" (thank you dictionary dot com). Well, I am sure this applies. Let's see. I think I like to fan the flames of chaos. Sometimes I may get involved in a scuff, not really knowing what I am talking about, and just cause it to get worse. Tee hee.

Fandango: Well, there were two definitions I could find, but I like this one. "A provocative Spanish courtship dance in triple time." Well well. Now this is more like it. A "courtship dance", eh? I think we can leave it at that. Buhaha.

You're right Sara, this is fun!

Daisy Flower Flower Child!

Daisy: "Any of several plants of the composite family, especially a widely naturalized Eurasian plant (Chrysanthemum leucanthemum) having flower heads with a yellow center and white rays. Also called oxeye daisy, white daisy. " Or, the slang term: "One that is deemed excellent or notable". As you all can clearly see, the second term is the one for me ;) Or do I have a yellow center? O.o

Flower: "A plant that is cultivated or appreciated for its blossoms" Damn straight I'm appreciated for my blossoms! My blossom's are so fully bloomed that you can't help but appreciate them! :D

Child: "One who is childish or immature" Well, obviously there must be a different definition for that one... Alright, Child, derived from the Archaic childe, which means "One of noble birth". Yes, yes, that sounds right :D

...VANITY!! I see that name translation was true!! I rather think you have a yellow center, myself, but whatever floats your boat!! ;)
