What Kind of MONSTER am I?

Saw this on Writer Ramblings and couldn’t resist posting it today!

You Are A Vampire

You have a real thirst for bliss, and you consider yourself a true hedonist.
And you’re not afraid to walk alone in life, if it means getting what you truly crave.
You truly enjoy entrancing people. Not to mention the ensuing pleasures of the flesh.
Your tastes have been called decadent and bizarre. You usually give in to your temptations, no matter how primal

Your greatest power: Your flawless ability to seduce and charm

Your greatest weakness: Human flesh

You play well with: Werewolves

More Contest Fun!

Here are the latest plugs for contests around the blogosphere.

I want to win:

  • A $50 Gift Certificate from But I can’t, because it is on my blog. Anyone can enter through the comments section and we’d love for you to submit a photo to get a second entry. We’ve gotten some really cute ones so far–please send us more. Enter by Oct. 5.
  • Mod*Mom’s Dyson Vacuum Giveaway. I mentioned it last time but it is too cool not to mention again. Mod*Mom is a breast cancer survivor and her story is as inspiring as her design sense. Enter by Oct 1.
  • Well, the super-nice ladies at 5 minutes for mom ALSO want you to know that Dyson has Gone Pink and have one to give away, too. If you don’t already have visions of a pink dyson dancing across your carpet, go enter anyway to support Breast Cancer research…and if you win you can give me your vacuum ;) Enter by Oct. 1.
  • Lots of cool stuff from Two Moms in a Blog, including a stuffed animal kit. Enter by September 30.
  • Mom Views has a copy of Siente. This is a lovely CD and we actually have one to give away later in October, too. We’ve been backlogged with contests but I’ll let you know when ours is up. Enter by Sept. 30.
  • So, a Blonde Walks Into a Review and hosts a shopping spree at Skimbaco. If you haven’t already checked out Skimbaco, make sure to give Katja’s great luxury children’s boutique a looksee. Enter by Sept. 30.
  • Lincoln is currently offering a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift certificate to qualified bloggers who mention his blog, the Habitation of Justice on their sites. Go check it out! Enter by October 24.
  • Cool Moms Rule is giving a way a different prize every day for a week.
  • Finally, who couldn’t use a fresh look, so enter this contest by October 4:

Which LOLcat are you?

Baby, This is Where We Get Our Food…

Before Baby Diva tried her first taste of cheese, she got to find out how we get cheese.

From the supermarket?

Well, yes…but go a little further back in the chain and you’ll find cows, sheep, or…GOATS!!!

Baby Goat

We’ve been visiting for a while and the goat farm has grown a bit over the last few years. In addition to cheese and milk, they now have beauty products and a glass window so you can see them milk the goats.

Making Goat Cheese

The place used to be called Captain Kid’s…they ditched the name, but kept the boat.

Captain Kid's

I Would Be Famous in China….

So, I tried MyHeritage before they had the cool graphic for your blog…and apparently I was Asia. Now that MyHeritage has the fun collage feature (thanks, Plain Jane Mom!), I figured I would try again:

Yup, still Asian. How about this one:

Really Asian.

No more Avril Lavigne or Amrita Rao, the two I actually thought I resembled from before.

So, I tried two photos from when I was pregnant…and apparently that makes me look more white:

And blonde apparently…except when I still look Asian:

How about Baby Diva:

Well, Super Dad and I always joke about her being a descendant of a Mongolian Princess…
