If I remembered...

If I remembered this thing was here, I'd post more often!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday!

What muscle car?

I'm a Chevrolet Corvette!

You're a classic - powerful, athletic, and competitive.  You're all about winning the race and getting the job done.  While you have a practical everyday side, you get wild when anyone pushes your pedal.  You hate to lose, but you hardly ever do.

Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.

It hink I'm going to challenge myself.

That last post made me think for a bit. Maybe if I challenge myself to publish a little bit a day out here in public, I'll actually finish something.

Doubtful, but it'll at least be practice.

I write like...

I write like
Stephen King
I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Of course, the big difference is that he finishes stuff. :(

Contemplating my stuff

It will come as no surprise to anyone who knows me that I have too much stuff.
What may surprise is that I'm taking a more active effort to dislodge it. We'll see how well it goes, but for now, I have a cleaner desk and shelf.
Miracles happen one step at a time :)

I am Blue/White
I am Blue/White
Take The Magic Dual Colour Test - Beta today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Personality Test Generator.
I'm both orderly and rational. I value control, information, and order. I love structure and hierarchy, and will actively use whatever power or knowledge I have to maintain it. At best, I am lawful and insightful; at worst, I am bureaucratic and tyrannical.

I don't think I like this test - I would've sworn I'd be green/white. Oh well.

Here we perch again...

I've tried the blog thing several times, but the last few have gone down in flames for various reasons, mostly related to greedy so-and-sos (domain parkers and spammers). I'm game to give it another try, so here I go.

...Can't stop the signal...
