We Screwed Up

Well, yeah. 

From the site:

What has two thumbs and screwed up? Me!!!

We just relaunched and redesigned the website. It was getting old and clunky and it was time for an overhaul. When you move you always end up losing something. I'm sorry you couldn't find what you were looking for but feel free to:
I looked for the recipe for chicken hearts I saw on another website, but it's not there.  That's heartless to not include that...or maybe chicken.

What Domesticated Animal Are You?

Sometimes these quizzes are so spot-on they're scary.  I'm not convinced of the "...you tend to help others heal", but I like to think the rest is accurate.

You Are a Cat

You are a highly independent person. You enjoy exploring the world on your own, and you really treasure your alone time.

You have a deep connection with yourself, and you are most relaxed when you fly solo. You enjoy family and friends, but you are a loner at heart.

You are a true adventurer, and you have a ton of courage. You are very curious about the world, and you love to explore the unknown as much as you can.

You are a very intuitive creature, and you tend to help others heal. You have a good sense of what someone needs, even if there are many mysteries involved.

Puss Pee Poster

Cat urine glows under a black light.

I wonder if they use it as ink for college dorm room posters?

Are You Smarter Than You Think?

Here are the criteria, according to this:

15 Signs You Might Be Smarter Than You Think

I'll go down the list and comment after each one.

#15. You’re thin.

Well, one strike against me already.  I'm certainly not fat, but not exactly thin, either.

#14. You drink alcohol regularly.

Nope.  I have alcohol in my house and during the hottest parts of summers, I sometimes buy a six pack or even 12, but most go to waste.  "Regularly"?  No.

#13. You’re a worrywart.

I wouldn't say that applies to me, either.  I only start worrying when things start looking bad.  Yep, I procrastinate even in my worrying.

#12. You’re messy.

Ding Ding Ding!  I finally matched up with one.  I think "messy" would be a little too kind to describe me;  I'm a slob.

#11. Being alone is just fine with you.

Oh yeah, probably because of #12.  Seriously, my mom used to tell me I preferred my own company and she was right.  I could be a hermit, as long as the cave was close to a grocery store and had high speed Internet.  

#10. You own a cat.

Never considered myself "owning" a cat, but rather that I was their servant.  I feed some outside kitties, so I'm gonna count this one as a "Yes".

#9. You’re tall, or left-handed.

Just what defines "tall"?  I'm not short.  I used to be just nearly 6 feet tall, but as I've grown older, I'm getting shorter, a natural thing from what I've read.  Maybe that means as you grow older and shorter, you also get dumber?

I'm not left-handed, either.  I'm sort of glad about that, after seeing the difficulties some of my left-handed friends encounter in a right-handed world.

#8. People think you’re funny.

I think they do, at least most people who know me do.  I like to make people laugh. I used to make my ex-wife laugh when I undressed in front of her. 

#7. Sex could wait until after high school.

Good grief, no.  I couldn't wait and dreamed about it from the first time I ever considered girls as sexual beings.  I seriously was afraid I'd die a virgin.   

#6. Suburbia is not for you.

Well, back on the right track with that one.  I would prefer living alone out in the country, isolated from city sounds and nearby neighbors.

#5. You’re the oldest child.

Nope, the youngest.

#4. You were breastfed.

I don't really know for sure.  It wasn't something I ever queried my mom about, but I doubt it.  

#3. Reading came easily.

Yes, I knew how to read before I started going to school, thanks to two older sisters who liked to play teacher.  I don't remember learning how to read, just that I knew how long before my peers did.

#2. People call you a night owl.

10-4 on that one.  I have worked a lot of nights in my life and it never bothered me.  I enjoy the quiet of the night.

#1. You’ve used recreational drugs.

Well, yeah, I have.  I hate to admit to it, and I often regret spending the money on them, but then again, I am glad I did them when I was younger and got it out of my system. I never shot anything up, though and my experience with anything other than pot is very limited.  I didn't care for most of it, for one thing and didn't like how it changed the people who DID use them to excess.

So, not sure if that quiz proved anything.  I honestly don't think I'm smarter than I think I am.  I think I'm exactly as smart as I think I am...and not sure if that makes me smart for thinking that.

Happy Groundhog Day!

You Should Give a Newscast

You are full of facts (even about Groundhog's Day), and people often wonder where you get the time to learn so much. You're not even sure yourself.

You know how to make the most of a boring situation, and you're naturally entertaining. You punch things up.

The End of the Republic

"When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic. Sell not liberty to purchase power."

-- Benjamin Franklin

Yes & No

Yes on the 7th one, No on the 9th.
