My New Meme

I received this in an email from a really great friend of mine, and I decided instead of sending this out again thru email (and considering that most of the time I don’t read chain mail either) I would post this on LJ as a meme and would be more likely to get some response.

The mission:
Describe me in one word- Just one single word, in a comment on this post, then I will later post the definitions and the words I’ve received as descriptions of myself (within reason, this is supposed to be fun, and I choose to screen any rude or negative comments, on the chance I get any).

I encourage you to steal this meme and do it yourself!! Remember, you only get ONE word to describe me, and if you so choose you can leave a comment under the word as to why you chose that particular word.
