Perfect timing: the "Birth Month" meme

Since this is my birth month, I can't help but do this meme. Feel free to do it yourself, and let me know; I am not following rule #5, as usual. Thanks to Susan at West of Mars for posting it, so that I could steal it from her.

1. Mention the person who tagged you and create a link back to them.
2. Copy-paste the traits for all the twelve months (see below).
3. Pick your month of birth (see below).
4. Highlight the traits that apply to you.
5. Tag 12 people and let them know by visiting their blogs and leaving a comment for them.
6. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve done it!

Going over the list, I notice that it seems to include some contradictory or paradoxical traits, but that doesn't bother me. For one thing, not all the traits will apply to everyone born in a particular month; for another, some of us do inherently have personality traits that aren't always consistent with each other - it makes us complex and interesting people!
Attractive personality. Sexy. (Those aren't qualities I can objectively evaluate in myself, but I'd like to think that my friends would say the first applies, and I would hope that my husband thinks they both do!)

Affectionate. Shy and reserved. (Well, the truth is that I'm an introvert, and that usually looks shy and reserved, although that's not always the case.)

Secretive. (Not in a sneaky way or anything, but I do need to maintain my own little privacy zone.)

Naturally honest, generous and sympathetic.(Well, to be honest, I'm not sure how "natural" they are, but they're all traits that are very important to me, and I do try to cultivate them daily. I also try to remember that there's a distinction between honesty and tact sometimes, though.)

Loves peace and serenity. (Until I get bored and fall asleep...)

Sensitive to others. (I hope that means in the sense of "being considerate" and not "being easily hurt" - both could be true, though.)

Loves to serve others. (But not in a subservient way...)
Easily angered. (I really try not to be - it's usually not worth it.)

Trustworthy. (I hope so, anyway; I certainly try to be.)

Appreciative and returns kindness. (I'm not terribly consistent about thank-you notes, though...better work on that one!)

Observant and assesses others. (I should be more observant and less "assessing"/judgmental, to be honest.)
Revengeful.
Loves to dream and fantasize. (Not so much; I'd rather be doing, or at least reading or writing about it.)

Loves traveling.

Loves attention. (No, but doesn't like feeling neglected, either...)

Hasty decisions in choosing partners. (Yes and no, really...I'd prefer to think of it as being decisive and certain of my feelings.)

Loves home decors.
Musically talented. (I wish! I can sing well enough to carry a tune in a bucket, but that's about it.)
Loves special things. (I assume this means "sentimental about objects" - and no, not especially.)
Moody. (Sort of, especially when tired, hungry, or hormonal.)

  2. Literary Feline - You know how I am; I had to make comments! :-D

    Tall Paul is doing this one too; if he gives it to me before he leaves for New York, it will probably end up posted here.

Now it's YOUR turn - speak your piece, please! Or just let me know you were here; I always like that. But you'll have to leave a name - I've disallowed anonymous comments due to some recent spam problems. Thanks!
