Chocolate Box Assortment #3

Sad news: I had to take AntiqueMommy out of my list of blogs in my sidebar because she is gone from the internet. Gone! Her site got hacked one too many times and she took the whole thing down. I am disappointed, because she was one of my favorites, and I will miss her.

This item probably deserves a whole post on its own, but DrummerDude Bought A House! A friend of ours called us shortly after JD and LovelyDaughter went on their honeymoon and told us of a house for sale cheap. Long story short, DrummerDude jumped on it. Twist to the story: he's not going to live in it himself right away; rather, he's going to rent it to his big sister and her husband. So we've all been busy painting and cleaning and planning; in fact, that's the plan for later today--to go to the house and do some more painting.

GuitarGeek found a website called Typealyzer. You enter the address of a blog and it returns results telling you what personality type the author of that blog is (or at least what personality style they are writing in.) It was fascinating. Here is my result:

GuitarGeek thought that summed me up pretty well, especially the second paragraph. What's even more fascinating is this: Out of curiosity, I typed in my favorite blogs, and almost all of them, with a few exceptions, were this:

It looks like I'm drawn to people with the same basic personality as me-- The "-SFP" part-- but extroverted-- "E".

(Note to Ornery's Wife and Carrie: What do you think? Your blogs came up ESFP. Do you agree with that assessment? I'm curious.)

I know I talked about leftovers yesterday, but the odd thing is, we don't have leftovers after Thanksgiving, besides leftover pie. It occurred to me yesterday that I sort of miss the (very) old days, where my mom and dad and brother and I went to Grandma and Grandpa's for a traditional turkey Thanksgiving meal, and then came home loaded down with leftover turkey and dressing and gravy. Grandma always divided up the leftover food between the families.

This year a dear friend has blessed us with ingredients for a Thanksgiving meal: turkey, ham (which we already ate--yum), potatoes, sweet potatoes, and cranberry sauce. As much as I love ham and verenike, I still love me some turkey and dressing, so I am very much looking forward to our own Thanksgiving Day here at home.

Hehehehe I deleted my commented because I realized you had the info there for me to read...Yup fits me to a T ;) I think I'll have to check out that site myself and see what the bloggers I read come up as ;)

The entertaining and friendly type. (I am always visiting with strangers, and amazingly, they are often visiting with me, too. I have noticed this a lot lately, esp. when I am out with other people who are NOT as outgoing as I am.)
They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. (Yes, except for the smells, which should only be natural--not artificial! Can't do scented candles, but my favorite lotion is coconut scented!)
They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead - they are always in risk of exhausting themselves. (Not me. I am very much a planner, and only do what I want to do. I do a lot, but rarely ever exhaust myself doing it--fun stuff doesn't usually tire one out!)

They enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. (Absolutely! Give me a problem I can sink my teeth in and solve, and I am a happy camper!)
They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation - qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions.(hmm. This isn't really me. I try to avoid conflict, and am very creative with ways to solve problems, but I wouldn't say I rarely initiate confrontation. I am all about speaking the truth and keeping the air clear. As far as difficulties in mgt. positions, that is always my strongest gifting on any gift assessment test. Interesting.)

Ah, leftovers. I'd like to just get the turkey cooked! It's still sitting in the fridge awaiting my attention. Since others brought food, mine has gone untended. It is on my list! :)

This was definitely an interesting analyzation. I came up with Guardian on my blog.

I love that you are having another thanksgiving complete with the traditional fixings.

My blog shows up as a ESFP, which is kind of funny, since that's not my type in REAL life.

I'm sad about Antique Mommy, too. Stupid hackers.
