You scored as 0 - The Fool. The Fool is the most complex and most contradictory of all the Tarot cards.
"I am not a number, I am a free man".
The Fool represents naivety and childlike innocence - yet the Fool is wise.
He carries only what possessions he really needs He journeys through life, tasting everything it has to offer then letting it go and moving on.
The Fool is a risk taker, often shown with one foot over a cliff showing us every new beginning has a risk. Whether the Fool represents opportunity or danger one thing is clear: this world needs more fools.


0 - The Fool


II - The High Priestess


VI: The Lovers


XIII: Death


III - The Empress


XVI: The Tower


XIX: The Sun


XI: Justice


I - Magician


IV - The Emperor


VIII - Strength


X - Wheel of Fortune


XV: The Devil

Left or Right Brained? Or both? [Jul. 6th, 2006|05:14 pm]
[Current Location |Salem, MA]
[mood |anxiousalarmed]

I took a quiz. My results: "50% left-brained, 50% right-brained."

So, I lack normal hemispheric dominance in my brain. I have consistently tested (in many dumb quizzes over many years) as being equally logical and creative, linear and random. I always thought this balance was good and gave me a unique perspective in certain situations. But then I read this today:

" 'This left/right asymmetry (in the brain) is an essential part of our humanness,' Walsh said, 'and learning how it comes about is important for understanding where our human abilities came from. So it speaks about evolution; it's part of the system that makes our brains so different from the brains of other animals.'

"Perhaps more important, this normal asymmetry of the brain is disrupted 'in a host of human neurological diseases, including dyslexia, schizophrenia and other disorders,' he said. 'So this may offer us entry into how such problems relate to the development of the human brain.' "

Do I have a disrupted assymetry stemming from a neurological disorder? I am schizphrenic and never knew? I am dyslexic and no one noticed? I'm a little bothered that I might be crazy and I'm only just finding out...

This was done by Chris, and is, as of now, unfinished. I'm not sure when he'll get around to finishing it, so I'm gonna share it now.

Damnit, I have to pee... [Jun. 16th, 2006|05:29 pm]
[mood |pissed offfull bladder]

So I'm at work, it's Friday, it's 5:30, and I wanted to leave early because I have a bridge game to get to. But of course, fate and our lovely customers being what they are, I'm stuck here. Until about 15 minutes ago, I was dealing with a lap harp customer. During this time, the phone rang and I answered it (although there were 2 other people in this office perfectly capable of answering the phone.) The call was about harp carts, and being the product specialist and all, I decided I was the appropriate person to be dealing with her - and "dealing with" is definitely the right way to put it... This is her second phone call today.

Anyway, she keeps me on the phone for a ridiculous amount of time because she is convinced that the base of the cart she wants will simply fall off, sending her harp flying down the stair - or something like that. As though cart manufacturers don't understand that these instruments cost thousands of dollars, and shoddy workmanship would cost them obnoxious amounts of money in lawsuits from harps taking tumbles down staircases because bits fell off. But whatever. (It should also be pointed out that these carts are incredibly sturdy, are manufactured in small numbers, and designed by a harpist who would, of course, have her harp's best interest in mind. But, again, whatever.)

And while this is going on, my coworkers leave. So I'm here with a customer, and I'm on the phone. Eventually, I convince the phone/cart lady to let me call her back after the real live people in the showroom leave.

Customers leave, and I call cart lady back. We talk for about a minute, in which time she tells me she's going to go for her first choice of cart even though it might break. Then her doorbell rings - or so she says. Now SHE's calling ME back. And I want to go home, and on top of that, I have to pee. REEEEEEEEALLY bad. But I can't go because as soon as I step outside the door, she'll call and there's no one else to answer the phone.

The things I do for this place.


Ok. The pee thing is really bad. I'm arching my back so I don't put any undue pressure on my bladder by sitting. I can't take it. I think I'm gonna pee in my dunkin donuts coffee cup. THIS is what this place drives me to - peeing in a cup in the back room. I don't even know why i care. Why care if I lose a sale?

THIS is why I'm a good employee. I'll be late for bridge and pee in a cup before losing a sale. Bitches BETTER give me a raise...


Ya'll have no idea who gross a cup of pee looks when it's got a straw in it.

Ethical issue [May. 30th, 2006|05:13 pm]
[Current Location |work]
[mood |confusedconfused]

Is it wrong to read personal letters written by your coworkers? Yes.
Is it stupid of said coworkers to save these letters in the "Shared Files" folder which is easily accessible by everyone on the network? Yes.


Is it wrong of me to be reading these personal letters when I can access them from my desk? Probably.
Am I doing it anyway? Yes.

Also strange, there's a "Verbal Correction" in this file for my friend Nicole. Is basically a verbal warning, putting her on "notice." Funny thing is, I don't think she was ever aware that she got this warning... Hmm...

I was on Postsecret.com a few minutes ago, and one of the cards has the quote "in that moment we were infinite." And I really liked it, so I tried to find out where it came from. Turns out it's from the Perks of Being a Wallflower, and somehow that disappoints me.

But I don't really know why.

[music |Appaloosa - Gino Vannelli]

If you've spent any considerable amount of time with me in the last... 4 years or so, you have probably been subjected to the horror/brilliance of Gino Vannelli and his crazy-bad disco music. Now, thanks to Mike, James's brother, we have video. Enjoy.


(I'm not cool enough to know how to embed videos. This'll have to do.)
