|Where to live?
I think I'm a bit more urban than that but ....
|Farm or Ranch|
You scored 17 out of 40 on urban-rural and 18 out of 40 land intensity.
|People know you as: The Milkmaid|
Quote: "You get to not mind the cow smell."
Your score indicates that you prefer a rural atmosphere to an urban one and low land intensity. You’re no hermit though; you like other people and, once you start talking to them, other people like you. As far as you’re concerned there is no difference between living in a city and living in a suburb, not that you would want to do either because you’re probably a bit scared of cities in the first place.
Examples of places you should live: Amish country, PA; Kansas
Secluded Hideaway / Farm or Ranch / Small Town / Little City / Suburb / Streetcar Suburb / Rowhouse 'Hood / Downtown Loft
|My test tracked 2 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:|
||You scored higher than 99% on urban-rural|
||You scored higher than 99% on land intensity|

|on the way to Cantebury
Thanate and I went to see Cantebury tales part 1 at the Kennedy yesterday. It was great, sad, hilarious, raunchy, pious, and well done, the way humor was long ago. Unfortunately I don't think seeing part 2 would be doable. My favorite parts were either the Millers tale (probably the bawdiest) or the Priests tale, which reminded me so much of the Muppet show, I was half expecting to have Gonzo show up, and had the Muppet show theme running through my mind, wow that takes me back, when was the last time I though about muppets.
Anyhow it was fun, great seats, small theatre, smaller than I thought it was. They apparently took out rows A-D to build the stage out and up, about an extra 6 inches taller or so. You don't want to be closer than row g or h unless you consider yourself tall, or you may not be able to see some of it.

|Dream, and bad joke?
Probably thinking too much about shows lately, or maybe the allergy meds but..
I had an odd but coherent dream last night. I was in the audience of a theater performance, may have been Rent. One of the actors is climbing a fire escape and falls, hard. I get dragged up onto stage and the play continues, with me standing there being confused. They all stare at me and someone whispers "It's your line dude". I take out some juggling balls from somewhere and start juggling and telling bad Knock, knock jokes. Anyhow, I can't juggle, but in the dream I could, Go figure. After a couple jokes, I say one that I still remember, I jumped twice and landed hard
"Who is it?"
"Raiding party with Battering ram."
"Raiding party with Battering ram, Aaagh!!" , throw the balls and run off stage directly into a group of confused Vikings carrying a battering ram, we then attack the concession stand, and that's all I remember.
So Dr. Freud what does this dream mean?

|Well no surprise there.
| You scored as Libertarian. Libertarians believe that you have the right to live your life as you wish, without the government interfering, as long as you donâ??t violate the rights of others. This translates into strong protections for privacy and property rights, and a weak to non-existent social safety net.|

|Shakespeare's Bday, tapestries, and theater
Figured this may be of interest to people out there. I'll probably be going. It sounds like it could be silly and/or interesting.
Folgers is having an open house for the Bard's Birthday this Sunday the 23rd. with some activities and opening of the Reading room. www.folger.edu
"This is the one day of the year the Reading Rooms are open to the public. The Reading Rooms feature sixteenth-century tapestries, paintings from scenes of the Bard’s plays, and the famed "Seven Ages of Man" stained glass window. The Elizabethan Garden features an herb garden with plants popular in Shakespeare’s time and mentioned in his plays."
Anyone else interested in going?
Theater: I've been told by people that I should see "The Game of Love and Chance" at Folgers, before I get a ticket, anyone intersted in going too?
Other current plays of interest to me " The Cantebury Tales" and " Sex lives of American Women"

Well one thing I forgot that happened to me at Corination:
It was voted on that I get with last century and get a cell phone. ;) So soon I'll be looking at phones plans features. I kind of was looking to get one this year and this was the extra push. Odds are I'll go for something pretty basic, maybe pay by minute vs month plan?
So what do you like / dislike about your phones?

Went to (de)Coronation this weekend, it was fun and tiring. So many friends I know got awards, some were long overdue. Congradulations you deserve it and more. It was quite the day, they each had worked their butts off for so long, and not for awards or recognition but to help friends, because it was needed and sometimes because it was fun often reinventing their jobs or themselves to do it.
LJ seems to be full of congradulations and more pictures than I remember their being cameras, I will be adding some of my own to the mix after I get my lazy butt in gear.
But now they are free, exhausted but free, watch out world. :)
I wish I had helped out more, but I was too deep in my own world, sorry.

|Drama at work
It started out as a quiet work day, people going/gone off to meetings. Susan and I were in, and she was soon off to a meeting, but we noticed Bill wasn't in. Bill is the diabetic one, who has been having health issues lately. We check the phone messages and e-mails but no message from him. We were worried but didn't think too much of it since he probably took the day off and told Gary, who's at a meeting. Anyhow at lunchtime people are back but no Bill. No message and no one remembers him saying anything about taking the day off. We call him, only to get answering machine, so we are printing out directions to his place, going to knock on his door or ask neighbors. And we try calling again and he's there. Whew! He had been at the hospital, seems ok now, had called work at 6 but somehow the message didn't happen.
So much for nice quiet day.

It sounds like many people were productive this weekend with Spring cleaning, I did a little but not much, must be a guy thing. :P
It would have been more productive than what I did do. Saturday was such a nice looking day, silly me went out on a work trip and attacked weeds and invasive plant species, but then paid for it, alergy wise, the rest of the weekend. Better now.
I did get to see Nightwatch, subtitling wasn't that bad, and some parts were good (especially the fight with the granny like witch), my main problem seemed to be telling which side some of the characters were on. Though this may have been intended since one main subtheme was there wasn't that much of a difference between the 2 groups.

| Insanity, horror, green slimy things, squid on a stick and bizare movies
I was looking through the paper last night looking for a Russian Vampire film that is out now, debating if I want to watch it now or wait for a later bad dubbed version on dvd, and I came across a movie showing at Dr. Demo's: the Call of Cthulu (silent, black and white film from last year) Showing this Tuesday, one night only. Will it be bad? almost definitely. Will it be a cult classic? Well the mythos was before the movie existed so...???
Keep my sanity, watch the movie,
keep my sanity, watch the movie,
keep my sanity, watch the movie,
keep my sanity, watch the movie....
PS wondering what the spell checker will suggest for Cthulu.
and other green slimy things Happy St. Patrick's Day. Current Mood: crazy

|Bribery? Who me.
The office is a sauna today, unfortunately the building doesn't turn on AC until a couple warm days happen in a row. So a random hot day like today you just suffer through. Not good for the people or machines. :(
There is a meme going around about things to bribe people with I figured I'd toss in my bribe list.
1. Sweets- I don't have a sweet tooth, I have several sweet teeth. :) Plain chocolate (or with nuts), brownies .. too many to list. Though plentiful and easy to come by it a general winner.
2. Touch- especially hugs and back-rubs, whether giving or getting one.
3. Opponents- for arguments/discussions, for mental challanges, and for games.
4. Travel to new places.
5. Gatherings or low key parties- I'm normally a rather shy person, but in some atmospheres I become extroverted, go figure.
I'll toss in a 6th one just to confuse some who don't already know: Occasional strenuous manual labor (moving furniture, boulders, digging, construction, destruction), in particular if it also involves learning a new skill. I wouldn't want it as a job, and after a couple hours I get bored with it, but occasionally... Current Mood: hot

|Stupid neighbor tricks
A blaaa, weekend overall. Hope others was more fun.
It started off by being sick for most of Friday, luckily, I nipped it in the bud by actually resting for the day and was feeling much better Sat. Ran some errands shopping mostly, got back started dinner, putting groceries away and power outage. So dinner is on hold. Wander into the hall and start talking to one of my neighbors, nice guy. I only seem to meet my neighbors under odd situations like this. We are talking for a while, when another neighbor comes out and is surprised to find us in this darkened hallway. This was the first time I really met her, and I think she may be one of the most clueless people I ever met. I can kind of go along with not noticing you're in a power outage, even for an hour or so, but she goes back in to check, (not believing the darkened hallway and your neighbors) comes out, believes us, goes back in to turn thing off for when the power comes back on. She then heads to the elevator, we ask her don't you want to use the stairs, "there are stairs?". She lives 2 doors away from the stairwell and has for almost a year now. We patiently explain to her that she can take the stairs out or can get to her car. However, with the power out, we weren't sure the garage door could be opened to get a car out. That didn't seem to faze her.
Now I'm not the most eloquent speaker but it took me and the neighbor about 5 minutes to explain to her how it was possible for her to go down the stairs to reach the garage and not get lost.
How hard is it to understand: "Go to the bottom of the stairs. Turn left, go through the door marked "garage". The other door down there leads outside to the park. "
"If you open the door and see trees, turn around and go out the other door."
"If you see cars you are fine"
By this point the power came back on, and I headed back in to restart dinner and check that all the groceries that should be in the fridge made it there. I was actually wondering if she made it. Now, I wonder how this person could have survived to adulthood. Have we so short circuited "natural selection"?
Oh well, my weekend could have been worse. I could have been the one stuck in the elevator for an hour or so.
