I tried that “better personality test” that’s been making the LiveJournal rounds lately:
You are a WECF Wacky Emotional Constructive Follower. This makes you a candle burning at both ends. You work until you drop, and you play until you can stand to work again. You have so much enthusiasm that you can find it hard to control on your own, and you appreciate the guidance that channels your energy and lets you be your best.I suppose this result is accurate, but hardly surprising or terribly insightful.
In a relationship, you require lots of attention and support. You often over-contribute and end up feeling depleted and cheated. You may benefit from more time alone than you grant yourself.
Your driving force is the emotional support of others especially affection. You can run on empty for miles if you have positive energy behind you. Without it as it occasionally must run dry you are depressive, listless, and difficult to motivate.
You need a lot of affection. Get it any way you can, but never at the cost of your self-respect or well-being.
On Sunday, the MSG and I got to talking about random sorts of things, as we usually do, and stumbled upon the subject of Roller Coaster Tycoon. He dug out his copy of RCT2, installed it, and we played for the rest of the weekend. It was marvelous. I can’t wait for RCT3 to come out this November. Earlier that day, we taught his mom and stepdad how to play Chrononauts, which was so fun despite being confusing as usual.
The long weekend was so wonderful that I’m a little glum about the work week. Good thing I’m dining with my dear friend Sarah after tutoring tonight. I’m also looking forward to hanging out with my new gaming group on Thursday, and then the weekend is already full of fun stuff. So there’s no reason to be glum.
New double feature recommendation: “Brainstorm” (1983, Christopher Walken) and “Strange Days” (1995, Ralph Fiennes). Both of them gave me wacky dreams all weekend, for which I was very grateful. I love wacky dreams.
Bloglines made some serious improvements to their service, including a built-in blogging capability for each user. Handy for folks who want to integrate their blog-reading and blogging interfaces. The overall UI is much better than it was, especially the sorting feature, so I’m quite impressed.
My beloved boots broke for the third time on Monday. Both heels have now broken off completely at least once; the left one has now broken off twice. The MSG, kind and handy soul that he is, took the time to epoxy the left heel back on, and now the boots are wearable again, but I fear their days are numbered. For those of you not in the know, I buy the same two pairs of shoes (boots and sandals) when it is time to replace the old pair, roughly every one and a half to two years. Same color, style and size. I know this is weird and perhaps creepy. I do have other pairs of shoes, but I almost never wear any of them. This, too, is perhaps creepy.
A tiny rosemary plant sits on my east-facing windowsill. The female dinosaur upstairs is screeching and whinging at top volume. I hear cat-bathing sounds just under the bed. It must be home.
