Nabbed from The Writer, it's another quiz!

Your Personality at 35,000 Feet Is Friendly and Gregarious

Deep down, you vastly prefer being with others to being alone. You love to engage people in conversation.

You are good with your place in the world. You are confident and comfortable with who you are.

Your gift is having a way with words. You know how to express yourself well.

You are inspired by almost anything. You don't have many mental blocks.

You are happy as long as you are given some personal space. It's important for you to have your own private life.

I like this one. Apart from my dissertation, I don't often have mental blocks. On the contrary, I have verbal diarrhea. Sometimes I have so much to say that it gets clogged up and nothing comes out. Or I skip over the important connecting thoughts and lose people in the process. I have been known to take sleeping pills at night just to get myself to stop thinking blog posts, conversations, and speeches.

That's been the hardest part of the interview process. I tend to babble and then get carried away and then the interviewee and I are involved in a conversation about cows or something.

Sorry folks, no pictures, I'm not going to post pictures and give you my impressions on people I don't really know who may end up being my roommates. I'll just say, so far all the people we've interviewed who might work out are all nice girls in their early 20's and finishing off their first year of university, or in one case about ready to start. We decided we liked students and girls better. Girls are cleaner. They come to interviews showered. Really, I can't say the same of the guys. Students are more flexible. Students are more likely to move out once they get a job and can afford to live on their own. Students are young enough that they aren't so set in their ways that they can't conceive of people being different. Most of these girls are in international programs or have classes with other foreign students or have lived in a foreign country. Only one hasn't and yet she's very friendly and open and has the most fantastic english. She watches a lot of American tv, she says. We babbled at each other for some time.

But speaking of pictures, I discovered today that I don't have any pictures of where I live or the area in which I live on my computer. I'll hunt around and if I still can't find any, maybe I'll go do something about that. Or not. I'm really bad about this photo thing.
