Result from Quiz

I took a Quiz linked from Kolaap's Blog. Results are:

Test Results

Extroversion |||||||||||||||| 70%
Emotional Stability |||||||||||||||||| 76%
Orderliness |||| 16%
Accommodation |||||||||||||||||||| 90%
Inquisitiveness |||||||||||||||||| 73%

Your sloan type is SCUAI
Your primary type is Accommodating

You are social, calm, unstructured, accommodating, and intellectual, and may prefer a city which matches those traits.

The largest representation of your personality type can be found in the these U.S. cities: Providence, Austin, Denver, Salt Lake City, Charlotte, San Antonio, Albuquerque/Santa Fe, Indianapolis, Phoenix, Portland/Salem, Nashville, Louisville and these international countries/regions Turkey, Croatia, Slovenia, Caribbean, Puerto Rico, Iceland, Norway, Ukraine, Sweden, Denmark, Spain, Netherlands, Russia, Japan, India

For some reason, the pasted link they suggested keeps giving an error, oh well. Strange how Japan has the largest of "Calm" and "Accommodating" Personally, I think it's all just a bunch of bologne

Some friends of mine have been trying to pressure me into getting kittens. While I am not exactly 100% swayed by this notion, I do feel that perhaps some kitties would be kinda cute to have around. Since they do eat grass to help them digest food and prevent hairballs (read this somewhere), maybe if I get 2 kitties, then they can just take care of the yard for me!! If anyone has some kinda good reading material on cats, feel free to lemme know.

Office Culture

This is an actual exchange that occurred in the office today:

Boss: "Ahh Sh*t!!"
Guy next door: "Did you call for me??"
Girl next to guy: "No, it wasn't you, there wasn't a 'dip' in front"

Needless to say, this cracked me up for a good while.

New Laptop

I recently got a new laptop from ASUS. Not many people know about this manufacturer, but the machines they make are quite nice. The company I work for is a subsriber to this Microsoft partnership program. This means we pay ludicrously large amounts of annual fee in return for plastic coasters from Microsoft every couple of months. I found this out to be particularly true when I tried to install Windows XP Pro on it last night. The installation went perfectly until it asked for the product key. Even though I typed it in exactly as it was printed, the program refused to recognize the key.

I called up Microsoft and a customer service agent confirmed that the key was correct and promptly whisked me to technical support. After talking with technical support, he then promply whisked me back to costumer service, which then told me that because the key is valid (duh....) that they cannot help me and that only technical support can help me....

At this point, I am assuming the tech support agent had no clue what to do, as he asked for a "few minutes" to look it up (in other words, "I have no clue what to do and am hoping I can find some sucker to take this phone call off my back"). Apparently his search was frivolous and he came back on the line to tell me that it was because the CD was defective and that the only way to solve it was to get it sent back to Microsoft to get a replacement CD.

I just decided at this point to give up on Windows XP pro and instead, installed Windows XP Media edition.

Captain Planet!!

Kabitzin and I had an interesting conversation today about elementalists in GW. We decided that the elements they use are strangely similar to those of the planeteers. This was our final analysis based on primary elements they used:

Alice - Kwame (EARTH!!)
Regi - Wheeler (FIRE!!)
Gjiintari - Linka (WIND!!)
Felis - Gi (WATER!!)
Kajira - Ma-Ti (Worthless, I mean HEART!!) (Since Ma-Ti can talk to animals and all, we felt a beastmaster was appropriate.)

By your powers combined, I am CAPTAIN PLANET (to be decided)!!!

All Together: GOOOOO PLANET!!

cue theme song:

Captain Planet.., He's a Hero, gonna take pollution down to zero...


It's been a long time since I played basketball. Since Attilarius came back, we set up a basketball game for tonight. Essentially, I overslept and woke up about 45 minutes late. I go to my car to discover that my new father-in-law decided to park his 5 MPG (Highway) Ford Behemoth Truck of no bumperness directly behind my car. After a few minutes of tight maneuvering, I was able to free my car from the body block. Well, as for the game, since I got there late, no chance to warm up. We played 3 games of 6v6 (omgwtfbbq!). The first game was rather intense since most people hussled up and down. After that, it soon degenerated into a 3v3 since half the people were kinda walking. Our team was 1-2. A good time indeed. I can already feel the soreness...

Return of the Bluesky

Got a MSN messenger message from bluesky today. I guess you can really say it was "out of the blue" (gonggggggggg). Anyways, haven't heard from bluesky in over a year so this was a pleasant surprise. Apparently, blue is now in California (lucky bastard..) and is doing quite well. Hooray!

BluPnutMM said "The March of the Penguins" stated when penguins mate, they stay together for the rest of their lives. I have learned that after reading the plot synopsis here that that statment is false. It flatly states "The pairs are monogamous for the season, though after the season is over the pairings dissolve." I thought I would just point this out.
