I was seriously debating writing a whole entry on bad/stupid news articles that kept turning up today. I was getting so depressed I was having a hard time reading the news. Who wouldn't be depressed/angered upon learning that tha bastion of honor and integrity known as Newt Gingrich had an affair while he was working to impeach Clinton for getting a blowjob? Or imagine the utter bafflement and astonishment of finding out that the FBI didn't accurately report its use of the Patriot Act? My god, all my pillars of faith, shattering around my ears. (Yahoo news provides all this, if you really want to wallow in it.)

But then, just as I thought all was lost, I saw this article. Thanks to some Mayan priests, there is hope for the world after all. I can work on my assignment now.

The Everything Test

There are many different types of tests on the internet today. Personality tests, purity tests, stereotype tests, political tests. But now, there is one test to rule them all.

Traditionally, online tests would ask certain questions about your musical tastes or clothing for a stereotype, your experiences for a purity test, or deep questions for a personality test.We're turning that upside down - all the questions affect all the results, and we've got some innovative results too! Enjoy :-)

You are more logical than emotional, more concerned about self than concerned about others, more atheist than religious, more loner than dependent, more lazy than workaholic, more rebel than traditional, more engineering mind than artistic mind, more cynical than idealist, more leader than follower, and more extroverted than introverted.

As for specific personality traits, you are adventurious (100%), intellectual (67%).

Punk Rock73%
Old Geezer67%
Life Experience

Your political views would best be described as Socialist, whom you agree with around 83% of the time.
Your attitude toward life best associates you with Upper Class. You make more than 0% of those who have taken this test, and 8% less than the U.S. average.

If your life was a movie, it would be rated PG-13.
By the way, your hottness rank is 57%, hotter than 82% of other test takers.

Now. Back to the damn assignment.

There are contractors working in the front hall, attaching drywall over the plaster. I suppose this will look better when it's done, but I didn't have a serious problem with the shabby chic of the peeling plaster. There been a few half-hearted motions in the direction of repainting, but this will be much more comprehensive and will provide a smoother finish. However, they have been drilling for what seems like days now, and the kitties are most decidedly unhappy with the racket. I'm not too thrilled myself, being of the mind that dental work is of the devil and is entirely suitable for torture, and drills (unless I'm the one wielding them) sound entirely too much like dental drilling to be borne without complaint. I have been biting the insides of my cheeks to stop the sympathetic vibrations; the cats have all been showing agitation by jumping at every noise, slinking everywhere and hiding in any little corner or cubbyhole they can find. Every now and then I look up from my reading to see a cat staring besechingly at me, as if I could make it stop if only I were willing to stop torturing them.

I'm preparing to leave them to their own protective devices, however, since the student library association is sponsoring a trip to the NC Art Museum's library this afternoon, and after that I'm having sushi with [ profile] zihuatenejo to celebrate her completion of her comprehensive exam. Woot! for finishing comps. And Woot! for visiting the Art Museum library. Now if they were only hiring... Heh.
