I'm younger than I look...A leap of faith.

Well actually I'm not, oh no.

First off though a daft quiz that anyone can take part in.

Your Birthdate: February 29

You have the mind of an artist, even if you haven't developed the talent yet.
Expressive and aware, you enjoy finding new ways to share your feelings.
You often feel like you don't fit in - especially in traditional environments.
You have big dreams. The problem is putting those dreams into action.

Your strength: Your vivid imagination

Your weakness: Fear of failure

Your power color: Coral

Your power symbol: Oval

Your power month: November

Ohh Coral and Oval that's super. A vivid imagination might be true but failure? No. I can muck things up with the best of them but as long as there are no major ramifications I don't really care. And anyway it's probably relative to ones expectations.

No, the real point of the post is to find any other members of the 'Bloggerati' that also share the RL birthday of the 29/2.

I was wondering how to commemorate the joyous occasion and to possibly publish a set of links to others with the same slightly unusual birthday on the day to celebrate the glorious occasion of being many 'years' younger than the majority of peers.

I'm minded not to share how many Leap Years old I will be on the 29th Feb.

But as it is slightly out of the usual I thought I would try to set a plan in motion to link 'we few' together on the day.

Not serious blogging I know but hopefully a bit of fun nevertheless.


PS - Please do let me know if you take the quiz and what your birthdate 'means'.

Well Grendel I would take that quizz except you did not provide a link to it that I could find.

I do know one person who has 29/2 for her birthday but she has no blog so it does not help you.

I actually have a friend who is my twin. She is Chinese and born in Macao while I am caucasian and born in Australia, but we call ourselves twins and have lunch together on our birthday every year. November 8th. I wonder if googling will bring up the quizz.

Duh! I found the link underneath after. Now you have to suffer:
November 8th:
Watch out Donald Trump! You've got a head for business and money.
You'll make it rich some day, even if you haven't figured out how yet.
A supreme individualist, you shouldn't get stuck in a corporate job.
Instead, make your own way - so that you can be the boss.

Your strength: Your undying determination

Your weakness: You require an opulent lifestyle

Your power color: Plum

Your power symbol: Dollar sign

Your power month: August

I'm still waiting to be rich so I can enjoy the opulent lifestyle. The lottery perhaps.
However I am determined.

Hi Grendel
Here's my results

You have many talents, and you are great at sharing those talents with others.
Most people would be jealous of your clever intellect, but you're just too likeable to elicit jealousy.
Progressive and original, you're usually thinking up cutting edge ideas.
Quick witted and fast thinking, you have difficulty finding new challenges.

Your strength: Your superhuman brainpower

Your weakness: Your susceptibility to boredom

Your power color: Tangerine

Your power symbol: Ace

Your power month: May

Wow, and I never even realised I was a Tangerine dream......

Gosh, grendel, Crushed's analysis is uncannily like the way he portrays himself on his blog. Anyone would think he had written it himself!
