Thanks to zaduzbina:

You were born during a First Quarter moon

This phase occurs in the middle of the moon's waning phases, after the full moon and before the new moon.

- what it says about you -

You like to make up your own mind. You may find it hard to relate to mainstream opinions on issues, and you definitely don't always like what's popular. You can work out solutions and give birth to big ideas when left to yourself, and other people will be impressed with your conclusions even if they're not sure how you arrived at them.

What phase was the moon at on your birthday? Find out at Spacefem.com

I also looked it up on the NASA link she gives on her site, and in my case the 1st quarter moon starts exactly on my birthday.

In memory of family and friends who have lost the battle with cancer; and in support of the ones who continue to conquer it! Post this on your LJ if you know someone who has or had cancer. 93% won't copy and paste this. Will you?

(I have friends and family who have survived cancer. I also have friends and family who have died from cancer. Out of respect for their privacy, I will not name them, but I will remember them. Each met their life challenges in different ways, some maybe "better" than others, but hopefully in the way that was best for each of them.)

If there is one person or more on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

Your result for The Social Persona Test (What kind of
man/woman are you?)...

The Rarity (QTAF)

Quirky Traditional
Alpha Female

You have an
unusual and unbelievably precious combination of traits, especially in
a woman. Not only are alpha females extremely rare, but traditional
ones with nerdy/geeky interests are even more scarce. Unlike the other
types, I can't give you a description because I'm not sure if you
actually exist. I know this is not a compatibility test, but you are
the girl of my dreams. Please, oh please message me! (Not to sound
desperate or anything.)

If for some reason, some emergency required you to leave your house/apartment immediately, where would you go?

You Are a Cougar
You have more strength than most people, and with it, the ability to inflict a lot of harm.
Your power gives you confidence, and you find leading others to be easy.

You believe that you need to the best, and you are very driven to excel.
Most people immediately admire you, but some people feel very envious of your abilities.

Really? Hm.... guess I better work on that!

You Are Mint
You are a honest person with a strong personality. Your frank point of view is refreshing.
You've been quite lucky in your life, though you have made more of your own luck than you realize.

You are engaging and disarming. You definitely have the "gift of gab!"
You live an edgy, dynamic life. Sometimes you get a little burned, but you always bounce back.

Fun, although choosing was difficult on some of them (I'd like the whole herb garden please).

You Are "alt"

Some people might find you to be strange, mysterious, and even a bit off putting.

You tend to be drawn to and influenced by alternative lifestyles. You're definitely not normal.

Once people get to know you, they realize you're interesting, intriguing, and very intelligent.

You have a lot of knowledge stored in that big brain of yours. Most of it is useless knowledge, but some of it is very useful.

Sorceror, although Werewolf's a decent second there. Hm...

Which creature of the night are you?
Your Result: Sorceror

Control is the name of your game. You are a studied tactician and scientist and you seek a kingdom where things make sense, damn the morals, even if you have to create it. You are cold, calm and calculating.

Decoupage proceeding apace. Have to put another coat of varnish on after putting up this post. Then on to printing more cards and maybe making two or three more magnets, then inventorying and seeing what sorts of signage and pricing I have to do -- with Nancy covering for me on Saturday I need to give her as much help as possible with being able to answer questions.

I'm pretty happy with the varnish. It dries quickly and is water-based so cleanup is with ordinary soap and water.

All that said, I don't expect to do some of the things in red.  And given a choice, I'd probably go to Wales, Scotland, other parts of the UK over going to Paris. But there are a lot of nice things in and around Paris... the BNF, Louvre, Tuillieries, ...

You Are a Yule Log

While you do have holiday spirit, you have a secret, heathen past.

One of my favorite things for Christmas that my mom would make was a Yule "log". I was helping by the time I was eight, I think... Thin chocolate wafers sandwiched together with whipped cream to form a log, and then covered with more whipped cream. Impossible to move the log neatly, so do sections and then assemble them on the dish you'll be serving on, then cover with the whipped cream. Then cover carefully and set in the fridge overnight. The crunchy wafers become cakelike, having absorbed some moisture from the cream.

We did this for Bergental Yule years ago as a few sotleties too, with marzipan figures from previous Boar Hunts on it -- a boar, a snow leopard, and a hunter. And since we were doing this for a lot of people, we also did a couple of them as rings, which Octavia make marzipan holly and berries for... We had proof people came over to look at the sotleties before they were served, too -- we had set the hunter and animals up one way, and they changed positions periodically. Although once the animals were hunting the hunter, everyone seemed satisfied. No, not medieval at all, but we had fun :)

The Sotletie has a mixed history in our group. Some take hours to make, some a few minutes -- folks enjoy seeing all of them. Some are more historically correct, others not so much.

One I liked was the gingerbread church tower with the stained glass window. It had a lit candle inside for during the presentation. Sminster had the making of the tower I think, but we were all over at Randall and Christiana's place to help because in addition to the sotletie there were stained glass cookies to make, and that was a good project for a bunch of people. Even people who didn't care for baking, because we used hard candies for the 'glass' and they needed to be put in bags and smashed into little bits :D

Anyway, I think the group activity beforehand and being able to share out the sotletie with everyone at the feast without destroying the tower (kind of like having your cake and eating it too) are why it was one of my favorites.
