Five adjectives

I am cluster-blogging today, apparently. Oh well, consistency isn't really my strong suit.

I saw this over on the Pioneer Woman's blog and I thought it would be a fun activity for my bloggy friends.

It's a little game where you list five adjectives to describe who you are. Now, once upon a time in a galaxy far, far away, I was an English teacher. So I know the difference between an adjective and a noun. And don't split hairs with me about descriptive nouns because I'm not giving partial credit. You use a noun to describer yourself and you FAIL! Got it? (yeah, because I know you are really worried about a loser-washed-up-English teacher "failing" you on your blog post.) All I'm saying is that it is a little more fun when you actually stick to adjectives instead of nouns.
In the event that you have made it this far in life without knowing what an adjective is, you can use this test. It is a word that would fit in these blanks:
"The _________thing was very _________."

Now that you have had your grammar lesson for the day (tomorrow we'll discuss subordinate clauses and the proper use of a semi-colon) let's play, shall we?

Here are my five adjectives:

God-sheltered
Creative
caffeinated
feminine
amused

What are yours?
