Today's Horoscope/Test/Autograph

Okay, pendulum swing from yesterday. Yesterday I was on a rant. Today, I'm feeling more lighthearted. It's a new day, and since my rant I found a lot of lovely people blogging. The world looks like a much better place.

A while back I spent an evening with my daughter taking crazy online tests, hoping to find out something nice about myself I didn't know.

The tests are a little bit like yearbook autographs. You hand your book around for people to sign, hoping now you'll find out what everyone thinks of you, and instead you get something that sounds like a newspaper horoscope. "Your (sic) bright and cheerful. Good luck in all your future endeavors."

However, out of all the dumb tests I took, three actually came pretty close, so I copied the results into my blog Notebook, in case they might come in handy some day.

So. Following are my three best test results.

You Have A Type B+ Personality

You're a pro at going with the flow
You love to kick back and take in everything life has to offer
A total joy to be around, people crave your stability.

While you're totally laid back, you can have bouts of hyperactivity.
Get into a project you love, and you won't stop until it's done
You're passionate - just selective about your passions

The most accurate thing about this one is the last sentence: "You're passionate - just selective about your passion." I seriously only have so much energy to go around, so I pick and choose what I want to go whole hog after. Oh, and the part about being laid back and then hyperactive? I told someone recently that I cycle between being WonderWoman and a chia pet.

Brainy Kid

In high school, you were acing AP classes or hanging out in the computer lab.

You may have been a bit of a geek back then, but now you're a total success!

Actually, while I did ace my one AP class, I never hung out in the computer lab. In my day it was all 1's and 0's, or something, and I could never figure out what was going on. One of my friends was way more geeky, and went from being a straight-A computer student, to being the best computer student in the whole school, to being a student assistant in the computer classes, and eventually ended up as a computer programmer in the army. Now THAT'S a brainy kid!

What Your Pizza Reveals

People may tell you that you have a small appetite... but you aren't under eating. You just aren't a pig.

You consider pizza to be bread... very good bread. You fit in best in the Midwest part of the US.

You like food that's traditional and well crafted. You aren't impressed with "gourmet" foods.

You are dependable, loyal, and conservative with your choices.

You are a flavorful and bold person. You should consider traveling to Spain.

The stereotype that best fits you is redneck. Your friends secretly agree.

I've saved the best for last. This is absolutely me. Except, I don't think I'm a redneck. I live in Nebraska; it's not far enough south. And, I've never once considered traveling to Spain. Italy, yes. Spain, never. I don't know why.

So there you are. If my yearbook were here, you could copy everyone else's entry and write "To the nicest girl in class. I never really got to know you. Stay sweet."

Oh wait-- now you do know me a little. I'm the brainy girl with a B+ personality who eats pizza.

What a great introduction into your personality. Back in high school I aced AP classes, but to the best of my knowledge there was not a single computer in the school. I used to have lunch in my Calculus teacher's classroom with the other nerds, though. Now I love computers. A redneck in Nebraska, lol. I am from the pacific northwest and now living in Lower Mississippi, anyone can be a redneck -they are so nice here I just can't help but want to be one.

Loved the pizza one. I'm going to do it right now. I am also very passionate...too passionate sometimes. Like when hubby and I are "arguing". He keeps his voice calm and low, while I'm yelling passionately. But he tells me it's one of the things he loves about me, so I'm going with that!!! :-)
