Potatoes, Lords of Acid on YouTube, Blog Catch-Up, 100 unsexiest men

I had 16 mini-potatoes as part of dinner. Go, me. :P (then I had Corey wondering whether I routinely ate entire large pizzas in one sitting... no, since I am not a guy! :P)

Thanks to Scarecrow, this is a YouTube link to the Lords of Acid song I Sit on Acid (Live).

I also caught up on blogs: Dave's girlfriend Tiffany can outeat him (HAPPY BELATED, dude... you'll get your stuff in June!), Steph feels like a perv when she buys hockey equipment, Dawn hates teaching certain English classes, Spoz chronicled Sean Kemp's 31st birthday party / pub crawl / girls, Vivian's excited since it's less than a month before she comes home (and her sister's now with her too!), and Jon made some Chinese-style beef brisket. I've kinda wanted to branch out into cooking, but am afraid that the end results will prove mainly inedible. :(

Watch out for the washrooms at Dragon Ball and math challenges!

Sam picked me up shortly after the last post, and we discussed his exam schedule while listening to the local Christian music station and navigating construction / traffic. A singer with an obvious cool accent (Australian?) was doing a version of a song I really liked: I love those accents, so that made it even better, hehe. Awana today was all right: Anita wasn't there for some reason, so it felt more relaxed today. A bunch of us were looking through one of her recipe magazines.. it had pictures of all the food, so at least you could see what it was supposed to look like when you're done making the things! Auntie Vivian liked that feature, since she hates recipes with no pictures of the end result. I gave Danny and Benedict their baptism cards without telling them what it was... they can open them and figure it out themselves, haha. Chris wasn't there, so I gave it to his girlfriend Sabrina instead. (I almost referred to him as her brother, aiya!) After Awana, Darren came downstairs and quizzed little Julie on math while we ate egg tarts. When he got to 13x9, Julie said that they didn't do that stuff till Grade 5: it was a challenge which Joey and Sam got before she did!

Mike narrowly escaped getting whipped by Julie again, and Darren told us some hilarious story that happened last night when a bunch of their friends went for bubble tea. One of their friends was a total newbie to the Dragon Ball experience, so he didn't know that you need a key for the washroom there. Everyone else decided to have a bit of fun with him, so they told him: "All you need to do is bang on the door really hard if it won't open!" The guy went and did that, then reported back that it didn't work: everyone simply told him to just bang on the door with more force! He came back a second time to say that it didn't work. So they decided that they'd had enough fun with him, and asked for the washroom key: "Oh, there's no key... someone's already in there!" The person who was using the washroom came back out and told his group of friends that he was so nervous (presumably because of all the banging on the door) that he was trying not to pee all over the place! *laugh*

After that, the guys just discussed some girl they know named Tracy who has a rich boyfriend. Emily and Joey gave some marinated chicken to Sam before we all went our separate ways. On the way home, I heard a new song by Brian Littrell: yes, the person from the Backstreet Boys. Aiyoh. :P

Dreams, hope, Sam, and quizzes

I dreamed that my parents were yelling at me and using their Asian Parent Techniques to get what they wanted, regardless of my wishes in the matters at hand. This is why I need backup in waking life, which I won't get tomorrow! o_O Here's to hoping things won't be like that, although they might be.. aiya!

Now I gotta go because Sam's giving me a ride to Awana. Here's to interacting with people, kids, and friends! :D

"I've seen him around too often.. I can't ask for his name!"

On the way to church tonight, Eric jokingly accused me of doing something to his radio since it kept cutting in and out. That's not anything to do with ME since the car's old, dude! He also accused me of various other things as a joke, and claimed that his speaking like chickens did WAS English. I don't care how much platonic love I have for the dude: "Bok bok bok bok?!" does NOT constitute asking me a question if I don't understand what's being asked of me! :P Listening to the Team 1040 was pretty good and gave me my sports fix.. HOCKEY PLAYOFFS! :D

Once we got there a little later than planned because of traffic, Eric bid me farewell since he knew I was going to eat dinner. Jasmine actually recognized me from across the street, which is doing pretty well in my opinion! At the restaurant, someone else had one of those fake babies that you'd get for a school project.. interesting, but annoying if it cries at inconvenient times. Hey, I like kids and babies myself, but that doesn't mean I want to be a mom anytime soon! We talked about annoying parents, hilarious stories, family, friends, life, creeps, online games, and other things: it was good to get a chance to talk to her! Good thing I wasn't the latest one to Fellowship, haha. Joe gave up his seat for me, which was fine by me. The talk and desserts were pretty good overall, too... we had crabcakes, cream puffs, and a bunch of other things.

Lesley admired the journal I was using to write stuff down in: she gave it to me a few years ago when my sister tried to throw a surprise party for me! Eric and I spent some time listening to the new guy Terry talk to Phil about some building investment that had flopped or something, after we discussed the motivation and perspective of Biblical characters when faced with Jesus... oh, and we also discussed BAD movies! (Ed Wood and Kevin Costner, anyone?) Then I called Sam since I didn't see him downstairs, and it's a good thing I can get a ride. I just hope I don't wake up at 3:50 PM again, heh. I also gave Joe his late birthday card, but at least he seemed surprised! :D

Christon was debating about whether to go to some Chinese church conference on Mother's Day weekend. Last year, he forgot about Mother's Day, and his mother was understandably pissed. We tried giving him some alternatives, as well as a plan where he could pay Phil back the conference costs of $140 in five-dollar installments: at that rate, it'll take him a year! I learned that Eric's going for the Sun Run on Sunday, too: there goes my backup plan, haha. Ah well, I can deal... I hope? Jason's also going for it, and wondered how people could possibly run in costume with all the sweat and such that you're sure to get while running. We didn't know, but that's an interesting prospect to consider. There was some white guy there to pick up Teresa... we let him in since Phil seemed to recognize him. None of us knew who he was, however: I'll ask her about it on Sunday, and see if I remember to tell my sister before she leaves for Montreal on Tuesday to take Vivian S. home! (she'll see the Montreal-Carolina Game 3 on her trip too!) Reminds me: maybe I should ask her when Vivian's birthday is, har har.

People asked the Richmond Crew whether we were going out to eat with them. None of us particularly cared whether we ate or not, but we ended up going home. (probably a good thing for me since I ate a lot already tonight!) On the way home, Eric and Steph discussed the Sun Run, and thought that my contribution to that conversation showed that I was obsessed with death and pathos! ("Did you hear about that guy who died at the finish line, and then got revived? That was KILLER!") Then they discussed 24, and Eric gave me an example of what had happened to one of the characters.. cutting off her ARM?! (I'd be so behind that I'm not watching that one!) From there, we discussed Saturday / Sunday plans, not being able to ask for Terry's name since it reminded them of a Seinfeld episode ("How do you spell your name?" "... B-O-B!"), whether Terry was the guy my sister didn't recognize who always talked to Phil / Dylan / Chung Yan (yes), pizza, bland food, grapes, too much information as far as a "double cleansing" went, gas prices, and other such stuff. It was a pretty good time, heh. :D

Teleporting to Fellowship, Letter K meme, Red Quiz

As soon as I got on MSN this afternoon, Eric M. buzzed me to ask what my plans were for teleporting to Fellowship tonight, haha. I told him that I had no such plans, but would meet him at Les Chapitres if necessary. He had to be at church earlier than usual since he had to go over some worship stuff with Dylan (hopefully no laptop glitches like last time we had a spiritual makeover / dessert night!), so that worked for me. I was craving some Pho anyway... not sure why, since I last had it a couple weeks ago. But maybe that works for me, haha. He said he'd pick me up around 6-6:15 (later than that, realistically), so that also works. Definitely looking forward to the Pho and the program tonight... I guess I'll see what Karen meant by "sizzling things quietly in the back" later. (she was talking about FOOD! :P) Rumors abound of my meeting Jasmine (surrey_sucks) at Bon's and then walking to Pho, as well.. I guess we'll see about that! :P

P.S. I will soon achieve a double cleansing! :D (nah... you really don't want to know...)

Since I told Tim I'd do this:

Reply to this post, and I will give you a letter. You then have to write down 10 words starting with that letter and explain in a small comment why you chose them.

My letter is "K":

Kama Sutra: One of those books I'd kinda like to borrow from the library. Only not really. :P
Ketchup: What I love putting on my fries! Never tried it with eggs, though.
Keyboards: An instrument I wish I was proficient at!
Kids: One of my main loves in life.. they're so cute and say the weirdest things! :D
Killing: One of the things I love reading about. No, I am not out to get you if I read about murders and such, mmkay?
King: What I would like to be one day, gender restrictions be darned! (being a queen would be next best)
Kitty: My mom's name. It doesn't stand for anything... it's just something she came up with based on her Chinese middle name.
Knapsack: What I usually will carry around my stuff in.. hey, I like a lot of room for my crud. :P
Knitting: One of the things my mom always said she'd teach me, but never did. Oh well, I don't quite think I have the hand-eye coordination required for such a task, anyhow!
Knowledge: Something that I always seek in some form or other!

You Are Apple Red

You're never one to take life too seriously, and because of it, you're a ton of fun.
And although you have a great sense of humor, you are never superficial.
Deep and caring, you do like to get to the core of people - to understand them well.
However, any probing you do is light-hearted and fun, sometimes causing people to misjudge you.

Sarah Rowlett / Party Reminders / "I love... because..." / Quizzes

My friend Sarah Rowlett sent me an email to invite me to her high school graduation. I'd go if it wasn't all the way in OKLAHOMA! I first got to know her through someone else's email newsletters, then built up a correspondence with her independently when she thought that my last name was Nugent! (she was confusing me with her friend Faith, haha) So we've been in intermittent email / AIM contact these past few years, and it's been good. I wrote back to congratulate her on this milestone, of course.

A post elsewhere has me thinking about money and such, again. Don't be surprised if I go back to certain things in the future.

I should get another one of those house parties at my place, since Danielle wants to see it sometime! However, Eunice has given up the SLB for at least a year since she and her parents went to Shanghai Wind a LOT a few months back... we'll see. ;)

Everyone have a blessed day! :)

Note to self: Include this in an update tomorrow sometime.

Note: LJ friends wanna get down and party blogquiz, by Georgie.

Hee hee, I found this meme amusing. :D

Directions: Type in "I love (insert name) because" into Google and copy and paste the first 10 (or so) you get. Italicized stuff is my commentary.

1. "I love Leslie because she so delicious" If you think that, you can just come here and try it, buster. :P
2. "I love Leslie because she is a sow" I know I'm a lardbutt... however, I don't think "sow" is an accurate description!
3. "I Love Leslie because she is an inspiration for me" That's more like it, heh.
4. "I love Leslie because she is so friendly and personable." My friends would probably agree with that one, yes.
5. "I love Leslie because she says things like, 'You have a bruise on your side. I'm going to push it.' " Uh, I would NEVER say a thing like that! Way to prolong the pain!
6. "I love Leslie because Leslie don't "materialism" and don't like $ when compare with Jackie Chan... Alan Tam.... Wong Fate...." I don't think I'm as materialistic and money-hungry as Jackie Chan, but I still would like some of those goods!
7. "I Love Leslie, Because him is my lover singer I like him start for 1984." I don't sing THAT well despite what Vania had to say once.. and I only know NOW that you liked me from 1984 on?! That's 22 years, dude!
8. I love Leslie because deep down in my heart, my soul, I know that I do. That's touching, in a way. Maybe someone will have that sentiment about me in the future... haha, as if?!
9. "I love Leslie because he's such an offbeat character." Offbeat, yes; male, NO!
10. "I love Leslie because she feeds me." ... WTF?

Note: LJ friends wanna get down and party blogquiz, by Georgie.

I'm a Night Sky.

You've seen your share of sunrises; the difference with you is that they usually arrive before you've gone to bed. The most productive and active hours of the night are the ones where no one else is up; no distractions, no commotion. The peace of the night appeals to you, and like the stars of the night sky, you won't disappear until the sun drives you away.

What sky are you?

Take Other Caffeine Nebula Quizzes

That's a much better result than the quiz I took earlier this afternoon which claimed I was a sunrise! :P

You scored as Silver. You are a Silver Were. Silver Weres are the spice in the Garou, the strange and unexpected, often rare creatures. The irony of being Silver, even if the metal doesn't harm Weres like it was believed, brings joy to the Silver Ones to no end. They are fascinated by the paranormal happenings around them, including themselves!

More YNR Mania!

What can I say.. I went through the list of YNR quizzes to see if there were any I missed. ;)

You Are Sunrise

You enjoy living a slow, fulfilling life. You enjoy living every moment, no matter how ordinary.
You are a person of reflection and meditation. You start and end every day by looking inward.
Caring and giving, you enjoy making people happy. You're often cooking for friends or buying them gifts.
All in all, you know how to love life for what it is - not for how it should be.

Funny..... since I'm SOOOO not a morning person usually!

You Are 28% Girly

You are a pretty hardcore tomboy, and a very free spirit.
Gender roles be dammed, you like to do things your way.

You Are A Relationship Rescuer!

You don't ruin relationships... if anything, you keep them together.
The key: you respect yourself and your guy. Which goes further than you might think.
You simply treat your guy how you would like to be treated... the old golden rule.
And in return, he treats you like gold - or at least tries. And how perfect is that?

You Belong in London

A little old fashioned, and a little modern.
A little traditional, and a little bit punk rock.
A unique woman like you needs a city that offers everything.
No wonder you and London will get along so well.

Guys Like That You're Fun

You're the type of girl guys brag about knowing.
That's because you're cool, funny, and laid-back.
You're smart enough to know how to be one of the guys.
But flirty enough to know how to make them all want you.

Your Pick-Up Line Is

You might not be the best-looking guy here, but hotness is only a light switch away.

You Are a Good Girl!

You're into fun - but it has to be your own brand of fun.
Drinking? No thanks. You'd rather spend your time differently...
Whether it's talking with friends, taking up a hobby, or reading.
You're not the type to socialize just for socializing's sake!

You Don't Have a Boyfriend Because You are Too Picky

You have no problem attracting guys - and even dating a little.
It's just around second or third date time where you start to see faults.
If a guy isn't near perfect, you're not into him.
It's good to have standards - but yours rule almost everyone out.

You are a Balanced Babe!

You're direct and to the point, but never dramatic.
You've got the confidence to speak your mind to anyone.
But you leave the theatrics to Hollywood.
Level-headed and emotionally stable, no wonder everyone loves you!

Your Ideal Hairstyle:

Curly Bob

He's a Mixed Bag!

Sure, your guy is there for you - when it works for him.
But will he really give you what you want over time?
The news is hard to take, but... probably not.

It seems like your guy does care about you on some level.
But he's doing the bare minimum to keep your relationship going.
Give him some time alone - and let him find out what it takes to win you back.

You Are an Indifferent Ex

You're not one of those girls who thinks about her exes - or even remembers them.
"Love 'em and Leave 'em" is your motto. And your breakups tend to be a clean break.
It's a nice strategy to have, and guys appreciate your total lack of emotional baggage.
But just a little reminder: it is okay to remember the good parts of your past, even with exes.

You are Barefoot!

You're a total free spirit, "go with the flow" girl.
You can't be restricted by shoes for very long.
And unsurprisingly, the same goes for men.
Your match is out there - and he's as carefree as you are.

Your Inner Eye Color Is Brown

You're smart, thoughtful, and the ideal woman for most men.
You are kind and easy to trust. Men open up to you like no one else.
It's this inner warmness that attracts guys - and makes you an instant soulmate.

Your Inner Pop Princess Is Kelly Clarkson

"Grew up in a small town
And when the rain would fall down
I'd just stare out my window
Dreaming of what could be"

No doubt about it, you have star quality. Might just take a while to get there.

You Are Left-Brained In Love

Cool and clearheaded
Tend not to get swept away
Dependable and trustworthy
Able to look at thing objectively
Honest and direct in relationships
Rely on standards when picking a man
Good at solving relationship problems
Ready to compete for your sweetie's heart
Articulate, a good conversationalist, and witty
Think overly romantic displays are a waste of time
A few serious boyfriends as opposed to many flings
Notice all of the details about your guy - good and bad

What Guys Think of Your Short Hair...

Super-confident, independent, party girl.
The kind of girl he pines over - while secretly wondering if you want him back.

You Are Just Friends

The chemistry between you and your guy friend is stuck on "just friends."
It could be a lot of reasons. He could be attached - or maybe you are.
You've got two choices. Turn up the heat, or forget about a romance with him.
And if he does reject your advances, remember that there are plenty of guys who will want you!

Hmmm... Maybe He's Interested!

He seems to be giving you mixed or muted signals.
Which may mean you've been giving him the wrong messages.
When he pauses to notice you, give him a little more attention.
A little encouragement may go a long way with this guy!

You Will Be a Traditional Bride!

You're the type of girl who is feminine, old fashioned, and totally traditional.
You've been dreaming of your wedding day since you were young.
And you can't wait to be a princess in your big white gown.
It's likely that you'll have a big family wedding and take your husband's name.
While a huge affair will be fun, just don't go all Bridezilla about the color of your napkins!

You Are a Soy Latte

Yeah, you've got a bit of that healthy hippie thing going on.
But you're more Kate Hudson urban bohemian than Phish groupie.
You're worldly and well-traveled.. and you know where to get the best coffee in town.
All your experience makes you a compassionate person - and a caring girlfriend.

You Are a Coy Flirt!

You're not so much a flirt as the type of girl who draws flirts in.
While you look like you're just relaxing, secretly you've got your game on.
A little look here, a little wink there... you give men the encouragement they crave.
And in return, they flirt up a storm with you - while you just sit and smile.

You Should Be With a Water Sign!

Your best match is a Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces.

Why? You crave intimacy and connection in your relationship.
And while most guys can't open up enough for you, a Water Sign can.
Not that your whole relationship will be soul gazing.
A Water Sign matches your goofy sense of humor - and desire to help others.

You'll Find a Boyfriend Within a Year

Either you're not ready for a relationship...
Or you're not quite ready to leave the house.
You can't meet a guy from your couch.
So at least consider meeting one from your computer!

You've Been Bit By the Shopping Bug!

You're constantly adding to your wardrobe - and it shows.
However, you can show some restraint. You love good deals.
Your love of the clearance rack has paid off...
You probably have only maxed out one card or two, if at all!

Your Guy Is About As Pretty As You!

While your guy isn't straight out of GQ, he's a bit of a pretty boy.
And he enjoys an indie movie from time to time... so what?
You've got the best of both worlds, girlfriend - a manly guy who understands women.
Just make sure that he spends more on your dates than the salon.

You Are An Intro-Extrovert!

Sometimes you're social - sometimes you're shy
You've got a bit of an Introvert / Extrovert split going on.
You enjoy all sorts of situations. Parties, small groups, and alone time.
Too much of one, and you'll long for the other. You need variety!
Chances are, you've got both serious and fun friends - and they don't get along.

You are Totally Realistic

"Romance" means you're about to roll your eyes.
Seriously, you can do without the sap or drama.
Save it for someone who has nothing really going on in their relationship.

For you, love is real - and easily integrated into your life.
You don't need candles, flowers, or chocolates to know he's the one.
Just some stimulating conversation... and maybe a great smile.

You're Almost Ready to Get Married, But Not Quite

No doubt that you've warmed up to the idea of marriage and lifelong love.
You just aren't quite ready to follow up with your desires, yet.
You may be a bit young, or a bit commitment-phobic... give it time.
Concentrate on guys who you can imagine being with next year. Forever can wait.

Your Candy Heart Is "WHAT EVER"

Valentine's Day makes you a little sick.
And not just from eating too much candy.
You're opposed to the commercial celebration of couple-dom.
It's not all about love - and love is not all about overpriced flowers!

Wait On Moving In Together

No doubt you and your guy want to get closer, but living together is a no go right now.
You need to work more things out between you - like money and trust issues.
Plus, you don't have enough experience living alone to be a good partner.
Take time to develop your own interests and sense of responsibility... living together will follow.

You Are Not a Gold Digger

You go out of your way to take care of everything in your life.
Including money - which you've got plenty of, thank you very much.
And you have no intentions of being a trophy girlfriend for some bald guy.
Just make sure that hottie you met isn't scheming to be your boy toy!
As a successful woman like you knows, gold digging goes both ways these days.

You are Ready to Date Again

If you're not out there already, you should be.
Your ex is long gone from your heart, and you are ready for another relationship.
Any guy you meet gets a clean slate - and no emotional baggage.
Congratulations, you've gotten completely over him.
Now, on to a better guy. :-)

It's time for you to start dating!
Post your photo and profile on a bunch of personals sites.
Before long, you won't have any more lonely Saturday nights.

If He Asks You Out Again, Think About It

This probably wasn't the best date of your life... but not every great relationship begins with a perfect date...

While you're deciding if you want to go out with him again: Think about what you liked on the date, and what went wrong. If you got along pretty well - but you were both tired from long work days - it's worth another shot. But if you feel deep down that this guy won't last, you've got to turn him down.

He Might Ask You - But Not This Year

You and your guy are playing a game of marriage warm up.
Which as fine, as long as you haven't been playing the game for years.
Give him time, give him space, you know the drill.
But the real test comes by asking yourself:
"Is this guy ever going to ask? And what would I say?"

You Should Go On Blind Date!

You're fun, free-spirited, and not looking to be tied down.
This doesn't mean you shouldn't date.
Au contraire, you should meet a lot of men.
And a show like Blind Date matches your relaxed approach.

You Should Consult a Few Friends First

It's possible that your guy is cool with you proposing, but why take the chance?
At the very least, talk to a couple mutual friends to see what they think he'll say.
It sounds like him saying no would be a setback for your relationship.
And if things are going smoothly, why take that risk? Only ask if you know it will go well.

You Are a Classic Gucci Bag

You've got style mastered - because you stick with what works.
Like this Gucci Bag, you prefer classic items that stand the test of time.
You're also a bit of a practical girl, who prefers function over fluff.
You prefer a big bag, so that you can have your stuff with you at all times.

You are a Look Before You Leap, Yellow Light Dater

When it comes to the dating game, you fall in the middle.
You aren't going to ask out any cute guy that comes your way.
That doesn't mean you're a total wall-flower though.
You'll smile and flirt - for Mr. Almost Perfect.

You're online dating style?
You're wired to spend time reading profiles carefully.
Once you figure out what you want, you'll make a few connections.

Annoying crawler ads, hanging out

I meant to write this update hours ago, but I kept getting distracted by all my shiny cards and the vast potential for tags in future posts after I spellcheck them. Look at it this way: I'm not inflicting so many updates on this page if my headspace is like that. :P

UGH! I hate those ads that just crawl across the page as you're trying to view what's under it! Yuck, so annoying!

I need to hang out with more people. That would be cool... can't wait till people get back from school and such! :D

You Are a Blue Flower

A blue flower tends to represent peace, openness, and balance.
At times, you are very delicate like a cornflower.
And at other times, you are wise like an iris.
And more than you wish, you're a little cold, like a blue hydrangea.

Hanging out with Teunis.. books, words, and language... oh my! / Shakespeare and such

I spent a nice afternoon / evening with Teunis today. We discussed programming servers and code, some rather interesting stories about his time in Fort St. John and other places, books (Chapters and Tanglewood Books... a used book store two blocks away), food (we ate at a place around Nathan's), Cthulhu, Jamie, humor, biographies, Shakespeare, sexual analysis, toilets, Jasmine, BEOWULF, Old English, Bathroom Readers, art, words, Richmond, family, bakeries (the Bon Ton was closed), restaurants (Bon's and the grease smell / Boston Pizza raising prices / Memphis Blues / White Spot / Chinese / Thai / Vietnamese food / Denny's), various frustrations and stress, money, language, his cool-sounding friends (like this one dude with an impressive sword collection and a mace!), comics, Kakuro, Sudoku, and other such interesting subjects. :D

He seemed to really like the birthday card I chose for him from the pile I bought last week: it featured someone in a Vader-like mask trying not to be "blinded" by the light from the many candles on a birthday cake, haha! I think I shocked him by finding his name in the 4th edition of THE BABY NAME COUNTDOWN, haha! If you can find names like Curry and Downy, why not Teunis even if it IS out of common usage? ;)

There were way too many tempting books for us at the bookstores we went to, but I decided not to spend any more money (he bought ONE book he couldn't resist, heh). I could have easily bought a lot of storybooks, Tintin (he wants to collect all the books someday, and says Hergé was quite the character), humor books, true crime books, and more! He mentioned a book that his ex left behind since it scared her so much: turns out to be EVIL WOMEN, one that I was eyeing last summer at Oakridge. I'd be up for borrowing it, if I lent him one of mine in return, heh.

I noticed a game at Chapters called LOADED QUESTIONS. Out of curiosity, I checked the back of the box to see what it was about. Ten seconds later, I decided that even if I had the money, I'd never buy it. They somehow managed to misspell the word "calendar." *rolleyes* (and here Teunis thought my objection to the game involved revolutionizing my social calendar and other such stuff!)

It was a cool hangout, as Eric H. would say... it helped that I got home by 8:40! Now I must get to catching up! Oh, and I'm currently convincing Corey that I have more than one cool Internet friend... "We didn't hang out today because I just went to school," hahaha! As long as he counts as being cool, he says... sure he does! :D Although if I have to convince him that Teunis and I didn't do any, er, naughty things... he may be off that list for a bit! :P

Facts About Multiples has been updated again.. I really like this new look! For anyone who doesn't know, I've been interested in multiple births since I was a kid.

47% Intellectual, 58% Impetuous, and 58% Trusting

Oh dear, you are probably quite pleased with this result and you really shouldn't be. You are an unreflective hothead, always following your heart in mad pursuit of what you want without caring in the least that you are getting yourself into all kinds of trouble. Quick to love,
quick to hate, you make all of your decisions on instinct and are quite proud of that fact. But then it comes as a surprise to you when things blow up in your face. On the off chance you're not already aware of what life holds in store for you, read this for a quick reminder...

Your Intellectual score was low because you never use what little good sense you've been given. Every decision is made from and out of pure emotion, and even though you know this, you don't care. In fact, you are actually quite proud of the fact that emotion and
instinct are your guiding principles and openly scoff at people who use their heads: "overthinking" you call it... but notice how much more stable their lives are...

To make matters worse, you also scored high for Impetuous: so not only do you allow your emotions to guide you, you make these decisions in a moment. You rarely learn from your mistakes.

Finally, you are Trusting of others to the point of child-like naivete. You give your heart and faith to people instantly and passionately and never really think for a moment that this trust might be misplaced. Authority figures have a tremendous sway over you, and you rarely question their opinions.

If you are ever going to get out of the scrapes that you keep getting into, you are going to have to stop thinking that there's something wonderfully romantic about making snap decisions based purely on instinct and emotion. It is good that you find it easy to trust
people and confide in them, because you are going to need a lot of help from your friends if you are going to survive. Before deciding on a dangerous course of action, seek out solid advice from people a bit more reflective than yourself -- and get that advice from more than one person so you can compare and decide amongst the best courses of action: don't just go with the opinion of the first authority figure you ask.

My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
