Temptation Tuesday - Biorythms
This Tuesday at The Pink Heart Society our very own Natasha Oakley introduces us to a brand new way to waste time on the internet.
If you need a break from YouTube I've found another fun site. I freely confess I'm not a devotee of the biorythm theory but it hasn't stopped me spending far too long discovering, among other things, that Johnny Depp just will not be completely happy without me in his life. I'd long suspected that but it's nice to have it confirmed.
The theory goes that there are three fixed cycles which start at your moment of birth - a 23-day physical cycle, a 28-day emotional cycle and a 33-day mental cycle. By knowing someone's birthday you can work out the highs and lows of their life. And, by clicking here you can find your perfect match.
Isn't that useful!
Naturally I turned my attention to my fellow Pink Heart Society editors. Nicola has a difficult choice to make. She matches with Shaggy and Dwayne Johnson, both scoring 100%. And then she has Rob Lowe as a third choice with a very respectable 98% compatability.
Jenna was perfectly happy with her 99% 'match' Ethan Embry but if she's prepared to drop a percentage she gets the choice of Matt Stone and Matt Damon.
Ally had a nice selection to choose from - Karl Urban and Michael Varten at 98% and Orlando Bloom at 97%. I've decided to award her Michael Varten because he speaks French and she's such a Francophile.
Trish was more of a problem. She matched with Dougray Scott and she's just not keen.
Since she's a very good friend I sacrificially worked through her list of Male on Mondays and it was all rather depressing. Jeffrey Dean Morgan was a pathetic 23%. Nathan Fillion fared better with 70%. Intellectually they're absolutely perfect for one another but physically and emotionally it just isn't so good. Colin Farell is a 73% match but their score was badly let down on their intellectual compatability. Physically it's a completely different story - 99% - which if half of what's written about him is true that's not so surprising. It just wasn't good enough.
Persistance in the face of depressing odds is a characteristic of all authors so I naturally broadened my search and set about working down the list of all Male on Mondays.
Beginning to understand why Trish is still single I discovered Colin Firth is a 54% match, George Clooney only a little better at 55%, Alan Rickman worse with 51% ....
Then I stepped up a gear with Richard Armitage. A 75% match. I almost stopped there but I couldn't resist checking him out for me and at 80% I think he'd better be mine.
Finally I hit the jackpot - Trish has a 92% biorythm compatability with Jeremy Northam. No one can complain about him, can they??? Also I did the obligatory check and I'm a percentage behind so I'll content myself with Johnny and Richard. Ally, who claimed him in the first place, only scored 48% so she'll have to relinquish him.
Mentioning British actor Richard Armitage on this blog seems to hit a mass of google alerts so if you've stumbled over to the Pink Heart Society via that route I thought I'd put in something special for you!
Match yourself with Richard Armitage
You've got 80% to beat, ladies ..
