Odds and Ends

Hey, I just noticed that this past Tuesday was the one-year anniversary of this blog! I haven't gotten apathetic yet! 329 entries ago the art of rambling was begun here.

Today I did a couple of things that normally I procrastinate about. Well actually it is still the norm since I should have already done them earlier but at least I took care of it.

One is getting a haircut. I hate it when my hair starts feeling thick or heavy. I'd just as soon have a crew cut or be bald except I would look funnier than I do now, but that would make me feel nice and light.

Two is clipping my nails. Do I sound like a pet? I always wait too long to get a haircut and clip my nails. I hate the feeling of having long nails. Granted I'm not talking Howard Hughes-length nails, I'm talking about probably what some people consider normal length but I don't even like to feel like there is anything there.

So now that you know a couple of my neuroses, on top of whatever else you've been able to discern from reading past posts in this blog, the last thing for today is that I took this online personality test called "Big Five Personality Test" - a set of 50 questions asking me how strongly I agreed or disagreed with various statements. I thought the results were pretty accurate:

Big Five Test Results
Extroversion (28%) low which suggests you are very reclusive, quiet, unassertive, and private.
Accommodation (54%) medium which suggests you are moderately kind natured, trusting, and helpful while still maintaining your own interests.
Orderliness (72%) high which suggests you are overly organized, neat, structured and restrained at the expense too often of flexibility, variety, spontaneity, and fun.
Emotional Stability (64%) moderately high which suggests you are relaxed, calm, secure, and optimistic.
Inquisitiveness (60%) moderately high which suggests you are intellectual, curious, imaginative but possibly not very practical.

Yup, sounds like me.. wet noodle. But optimistic and secure in my noodledom.

This particular test was one of many, on this website. I'm going to try a few more of them. Speaking of tests, here's one of the funniest television scenes ever:
