Today my fish died, I had all sorts of scheduling hell for a procedure to remove some funky cells from my womanly parts, I was late for work, I found out I have a job interview next Friday--the day before I throw the Speakeasy Ball with Normal--my paycheck is late, my boyfriend is out of town, aaack.

Some of these things are good, some are bad, some neutral, but I'm overwhelmed and freaking out.

Sorry the spacing is all fucked up in this. I can't find the html in the coding for this that regulates the spacing/padding of the table below...well, I can, but I can't seem to pinpoint the code that affects the annoyingly huge spaces. Sorry.

Your brain: 60% interpersonal, 180% visual, 120% verbal, and 40% mathematical!
Congratulations on being 400% smart! Actually, on my test, everyone is. The above score breaks down what kind of thinking you most enjoy doing. A score above 100% means you use that kind of thinking more than average, and a score below 100% means you use it less. It says nothing about how good you are at any one, just how interested you are in each, relatively. A substantial difference in scores between two people means, conclusively, that they are different kinds of thinkers.

Matching Summary: Each of us has different tastes. Still, I offer the following advice, which I think is obvious:

  1. Don't date someone if your interpersonal percentages differ by more than 80%.
  2. Don't be friends with someone if your verbal percentages differ by more than 100%.
  3. Don't have sex with someone if their math percentage is over 200%.

My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

Is it just a function of living in a metropolis, that the 3:00 a.m. sky is yellowish or a weird luminescent shade of burgundy?

It's ~almost~ a normal shade at the very uppermost part of the dome, and you can see stars there, a very few, but as you look down towards the horizon, or even the middle ranges, the sky's edges seem to be thinning, diffusing into this unhealthy, vaguely nuclear glow.

That just doesn't seem right. I always find myself wondering, if the Chumash Indians who used to live in this area were plunked right down in the midst of what their land has become, just HOW much they'd freak the fuck out.
