I would like to know why "Somebody's been feeding you meat!" is considered an insult in P.G. Wodehouse's books.

The Ice Queen Cometh

That would be me. I am a crazy lady who cannot 'reach out and touch' her fellow human beings. I can't make friends. I don't know how. It's a weird and lonely little world that I live in.

I had wanted to somehow use this blog to vent, in the vague hope that perhaps some kind soul wandering through the web would stop by and tell me how to be a human being, but I can't really seem to even express whatever the hell it is that I feel as an anonymous blogger.

"I will remove your heart of stone, and replace it with a heart of flesh."

That's promise of God. That's what I want. I don't know how.

Your Brain Usage Profile

Auditory : 66%
Visual : 33%
Left : 71%
Right : 28%

You are mildly left-hemisphere dominant while showing a slight preference for auditory processing. This overall combination seems to indicate a well-working blend of logic and judgment and organization, with sufficient intuition, perception and creativity to balance that dominance.

You will at times experience conflict between how you feel and what you think which will generally be resolved in favor of what you think. (I should hope so.)You will find yourself interested in the practical applications of whatever material you have learned or whatever situation you face and will retain the ability to refine whatever knowledge you possess or aspects of whatever position you are in.

By and large, you will orient yourself toward intellectual activities and structure. Though not rigid, you will schedule yourself, plan, and focus on routine and continuity of operations, rather than on changes and disruptions

When changes or disruptions occur, you are likely to consider first how to ensure that such disruptions do The same balance is reflected in your sensory preference. You will tend to be reflective and measured in your interaction style. For the most part, you will be considered objective without being cold (Oh, I can be cold when necessary.)and goal-oriented while retaining the capacity to listen to others.

Preferentially you learn by listening and maintaining significant internal dialogues with yourself. (I talk to myself! I do!) Nevertheless, you have sufficient visualization capabilities to benefit from using graphs, charts, doodles, (Doodles are great! If I couldn't doodle, I'd have to kill people during meetings, just to - er - liven them up.)or even body movement to enhance your comprehension and memory.

To the extent that you are even implicitly aware (Is it just my paranoia, or are they implying that I am basically dull and unaware?)of your hemispheric dominance and sensory style, you will feel most comfortable in those arenas which emphasize verbal skills and logic. Teaching, law, and science are those that stand out among the professions, along with technical sales and management.

Coffee Break My Heart

original poetry

Alas, I shed a saddened tear.
Came for coffee, none was here.
Some carefree soul came through the door,
drank the last cup, made no more.
Drank his fill, but left me dry.
I'd like to spit into his eye.

I'm out of state, on vacation, visiting the folks. We are having a garage sale, trying to clear out some stuff. It's awful! I want to car-jack a truck or van, konk the driver on the head, stuff all this crap into the back of his truck, take $50 bucks from his wallet, and then drive him to an unknown location and abandon him there, $50 short & with a load of 'stuff'. In a perfect world, I would be able to conduct garage sales by force.

You are 43% geek
You are a geek liaison, which means you go both ways. You can hang out with normal people or you can hang out with geeks which means you often have geeks as friends and/or have a job where you have to mediate between geeks and normal people. This is an important role and one of which you should be proud. In fact, you can make a good deal of money as a translator.

Normal: Tell our geek we need him to work this weekend.

You [to Geek]: We need more than that, Scotty. You'll have to stay until you can squeeze more outta them engines!

Geek [to You]: I'm givin' her all she's got, Captain, but we need more dilithium crystals!

You [to Normal]: He wants to know if he gets overtime.

Take the Polygeek Quiz at

Rather interesting for once, because geek translator actually is a large part of my job.

BTW, that picture comes with the quiz. It's not me.

Narcissism in Blogland

Seems like lately, there's been an awful lots of blogs with the following themes:

  • Web logs are going to SAVE THE WORLD! At last, a chance for the common man to speak and be heard!; and
  • (Everybody, sing along!) My blog's better than yo-ours, my blog's better than your-or-or-ors, my blog's better than YO-OURS, 'cuz I get more hits and posts.

  • Lots of cross-posting, too. The blogosphere seems to have become a very clique-y place in the past couple of weeks. Very few people are actually writing anything worth reading, just linking to each other and having contests and things. Very Hollywood-ish, actually. The blogosphere is taking its own temperature and analyzing and preening itself.

    Ah hell!! & as this post indicates, I've apparently been sucked into it myself.

    I really hope these stupid contests end soon and people start posting something interesting again.

    Update: I mean, I think the pool for the Blue-light Blair special is funny, obviously, or else I wouldn't have linked to it. But there are also a lot of 'send me links' contests going on that are just silly. Bloglinking is a very dreary spectator sport. Sorry if I was incoherent.
