Why is a website with randomly generated adjectives able to describe me so damn well?? Thanks to Lindsay for the site.
EJ is the last of the great eccentrics. The funny thing is, she doesn't know it. She thinks her behaviour is perfectly normal. She sees herself as a pillar of propriety and a paragon of protocol. EJ has strong views about every topic under the sun. There's not a subject she doesn't know about or a moral point she can't pontificate on. EJ is entitled to be a little arrogant. She knows an awful lot about an awful lot of things. She is well versed, well rehearsed, and deeply immersed in the kind of knowledge that we lesser mortals can only dream of attaining. Thankfully, she is there to shed the light and show the way. This, she does generously and patiently, as befits a person of superior intellect. EJ is wise, intelligent and (thankfully) oblivious to irony.
Or, at least, that's how EJ is, at her worst. She can't help it. She's an Aquarian and Aquarians are infamous for their occasional outbursts of pomposity. Happily there is another truly delightful side to her. EJ is as honest as the day is long, as generous as the ocean is deep. This is partly where the eccentricity comes from, for a person with such strong opinions EJ is surprisingly willing to please. she is keen to win friends and influence people. She loves to feel that she belongs. She always wants to be in on the action, part of the scene and one of the gang. Rather like Groucho Marx though, she is never sure that she would want to be part of any club that would a member. She is always on the lookout for some new cause to support, or enterprise to sign up to. You might think that this would make her fickle but actually EJ is exceedingly loyal. She may be forever expanding her horizons but she never forgets her friends and she never reneges on her commitments. This is why, despite the highly idiosyncratic nature of EJ's personality, so many people think the world of her.
In other news, a girl got robbed in our backyard/alley last night and we had helicopters with search lights circling the neighborhood for an hour. In the immortal words of The Boyfriend "yessssss."
Also, I really like my new job. So this is what it feels like to be happy, hardworking and made to feel competent and supported! That warrants another yesssss.
