I blame it on zooms

She ( got me into it:

You Are Pinot Noir

Sophisticated and worldly, you probably know more about wine than most drinkers.

You have great taste, and you approach all aspects of life with a gourmet attitude.

You believe that the little things in life should be cherished and enjoyed... and of the best quality possible.

And while you may take more time to eat a meal or tour a city, it's always time well spent.

Deep down you are: A seductive charmer

Your partying style: Refined. And you would never call it "partying"

Your company is enjoyed best with: Stinky expensive cheese

Somehow, however flattering this description might seem, I do NOT recognize myself in it one yota. Me a seductive charmer???? But that stinky cheese - perhaps of my own hobby production and thus expensive, due to all experimenting, might be true... ;-)
But the next test result is even worse:

You are Temperance

Time. Ages. Transformation. Involuntary change

Temperance is another card of aspiration, but also of much change. It often
represents complex situations. Positively, you can harmonize contrary

Temperance is, on a surface level, about "tempering." The original pouring from cup to cup might have been about cutting wine with water. So this is a card about moderation. There is, however, another angle to the card, that of merging seemingly impossible opposites. Sagittarius, the centaur, merges beast and man into a unique creature. And then there is the bow and arrow, one moving, one stationary, working together to point the way. Temperance may be, at first glance, a warning for you to "temper" your behavior, to cut your wine with water. But it may also be a reminder to that seemingly irreconcilable opposites may not be irreconcilable at all. Belief that fiery red and watery blue cannot be merged may be the only thing standing in the way of blending the two. Change the belief, measure out each with care, and you can create otherworldly violet.

Et tu Brute contra me???

How can this be my fault? and anyway, apart from the stinky cheese bit the wine thing was rather good, admittedly the 'temperance' card kind of spoiled it all but I do like the bit about the red and the blue!

Good - not true or not good - true. Tough choice?
Temperance meaning trying to reconcile irreconciliable differences is a story of my life. It started at birth: by a sheer coincidence I was given an ominous sounding double formal first name: Marie Antoinette. And my mother added to it an informal first name Barbara.
To live up to all of it, I was supposed to become a mixture (the violet thing?) of an arrogant and tragic queen (the blue?) and the barbarian, the wild woman (the red?). Now, try to live with it - it ain't easy ;-((.
You are lucky you are a star!
But the stinky cheese (which I love, any variety of it - the stinkier the better) goes usually well with pinot, so I do not mind that.
