You are an Ingrid -- "I am unique"

Ingrids have sensitive feelings and are warm and perceptive.

How to Get Along with Me

  • * Give me plenty of compliments. They mean a lot to me.

  • * Be a supportive friend or partner. Help me to learn to love and value myself.

  • * Respect me for my special gifts of intuition and vision.

  • * Though I don't always want to be cheered up when I'm feeling melancholy, I sometimes like to have someone lighten me up a little.

  • * Don't tell me I'm too sensitive or that I'm overreacting!

What I Like About Being an Ingrid

  • * my ability to find meaning in life and to experience feeling at a deep level

  • * my creativity, intuition, and sense of humor

  • * feeling hurt or attacked when someone misundertands me

  • * expecting too much from myself and life

That's a good one. I never considered myself an Ingrid, but reading the description -- yikes! Very accurate, surprisingly.

And, of course:

Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today!
Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today!

URG, I have to go to work! Why didn't I save ANY Personal Time this year?!? Stupid responsibilities, make me feel like I can't take time when everyone else does!

Okay, in case I don't get a chance to post again, everyone have a happy and safe New Year --

1) I will get off my duff and find a market and start submitting Ring of Fire again.
2) I will finish and submit The Long Way Home to both the Amazon Breakthrough Novel and the Southwest Writers contests this year.
3) I will get back to working out at least three times a week.
4) I will get back into my jeans (that one I expect to do pretty quickly, once the holiday junk is gone).

Happy New Year!

By the way, I just got the box of goodies from you and Barb -- THANK YOU! :-)) They look just fabulous, and are much appreciated.

About the dragons...
I have found that there are two sites that between them can save nearly every egg.

The first is Soti's Dragon Site. You can add any egg or dragon to the site using the Add/Remove Dragon links. The "Nest" allows you to add any egg from your scroll --though I strongly recommend not adding an egg until it's at least 24 hours old. The "Nursery" is where you add hatchlings. And, of course, the "ER" is where you put Emergencies (any egg/hatchling with under three days).

The other site is The Dragon Cave Fansite. Like the other one, you can add either eggs (the "Hatchery"), hatchlings ("Daycare") or Emergencies (also eggs under three days). Again, I suggest you wait 24 hours before adding eggs to this site, as it gets a lot of traffic.

I have actually begun using these sites almost exclusively, and most of my dragons/eggs "level up" at 3.5 days.

Re: About the dragons...
Very cool!

I post to dragonspam and it seems to work, but I'll check out these others!

Re: About the dragons...
I used to post to Dragonspam, too, but I noticed it took longer & longer for my kids to grow up --and I came close to losing some of the rares. I think Dragonspam got so big that dragons don't last on main pages as long as they used to, so in the end they just don't get the visibility anymore. Someone turned me on to the DC Fansite one, and it did OK. But when I was traveling to another city for work in December, I nearly lost my Autumns. Searching the various Dragon Emergency communities on LJ, I discovered Soti's site & never had a dragon even come close to being at risk again.

Re: About the dragons...
I was too tired last night to understand how to use Soti's site. I have to read it again when I'm coherent. *g*

I know what you mean - I lost a few babies because of travel.
