Conjunctions with Uranus

Astrology and the Internet - two sources of information that can't be trusted, together at last.

Alice Dryden is deeply perceptive. Remember the story of the Princess and the Pea? Alice could detect a lentil under a million mattresses. Not, you understand that Alice spends her time looking for things to criticise. Far from it, Alice goes out of her way to avoid finding fault. It's just that faults have a way of finding her. It is as if they walk up to her and tap her on the shoulder saying "Alice, look at me can't you see how badly made\designed\organised I am? Please put me out of my misery. For heavens' sake let someone know what is wrong with me and tell them how to put me right!" Alice Dryden is a kind, sympathetic person who is always willing to help. How can she resist such a request? Reluctantly, for she knows it will cause controversy and she hates any form of conflict, she will come bravely to the aid of this poor little problem.

Or so, at least that's how it seems to be. Alice Dryden is a Virgo and all Virgos find themselves, for some inexplicable reason, being labelled 'fussy.' Alice, though is actually very broad minded, tolerant and far sighted. She can forgive a thousand transgressions and excuse a multitude of mistakes. You can take advantage of her endless good nature and generally abuse her willingness to be friendly without ever hearing so much as a word of complaint. If, though, as you walk all over Alice you commit the cardinal sin of leaving your shoelaces undone, you will soon hear sharp words of complaint.

There is though, a reason why Alice is so often easy going, restrained, and liable to take the blame for things which are not her fault. Given her impeccable eye for detail, her infallible insight into other people, and her accurate good judgement she could soon end up ruling the world. To ensure that others have at least a fighting chance nature has imbued Alice Dryden with a small handicap in the shape of a mild (and totally inappropriate) inferiority complex. via loganberrybunny.

Perhaps more accurate is

Your weasel is the American River Otter!
Your weasel is the American River Otter. Fun and
playful, you're the life of the party! Talk
about an animal that knows how to have fun.
Good news: You're the only animal, besides people,
of course, to have built toys! How cool is
Bad news: As fun loving as you are, some people
think you eat too many damn fish, and water
pollution's no spring picnic either.

Which weasel are you?

though I think in the interests of accuracy 'weasel' should be extended to 'mustelid'.

And speaking of elil, can I also recommend Loganberry's excellent Introduction to Colloquial Lapine? Yes, it is scary that someone has devoted this much thought to the language of a bunch of fictional bunnies (far more thought than Richard Adams ever did, I imagine). But I have enough obsessions of my own to respect other people's.

Now all we need is a two-letter HTML language declaration code for web pages written in Lapine, possibly with auxiliary attributes for Old and Colloquial dialects.
