Who, Me?

You're Totally Sarcastic

You sarcastic? Never! You're as sweet as a baby bunny.
Seriously, though, you have a sharp tongue - and you aren't afraid to use it.
And if people are too wimpy to deal with your attitutde, then too bad. So sad.

Does This Make Me a Cog or a Dat?

You Are: 60% Dog, 40% Cat

You are a nice blend of cat and dog.
You're playful but not too needy. And you're friendly but careful.
And while you have your moody moments, you're too happy to stay upset for long.

This Explains A Lot

Your Brain is 40% Female, 60% Male

You have a total boy brain
Logical and detailed, you tend to look at the facts
And while your emotions do sway you sometimes...
You never like to get feelings too involved

I think that the test was too "girly." Is it my fault that my best friend and I tend to talk about politics and news? SHE'S A GIRL! Doesn't that count? (I can't wait for her to take the test.)

I Am...

Los Angeles

Young and fun, you always know where the best parties are.
And while you tend to keep things carefree and casual...
You certainly can glam it up when you need to.

Famous people from Los Angeles: Tyra Banks, Jake Gyllenhall, Freddie Prinze Jr.

Geek vs. Dork

Years ago I stayed up late waiting for a friend to show up who was running very late and Conan O'Brien was the only thing on. It was an early show when Conan was at his dorkiest. I swear, he would have made Napoleon Dynomite look like the cool kid. I felt like brain cells marched like lemmings out of my ears. I was pissed. When the friend showed up I whipped the door open and announced, "I WATCH CONAN O'BRIEN FOR NO MAN!!"

Well, tonight I watched Conan O'Brien for Stephen Colbert. And it was worth it. It was also an entertaining exercise in comparing geek vs. dork.

More specifically I think it was a 30th level Geek with a +5 Wit of Striking vs. a 20th level Dork using +12 Hair of Distraction. But let me address these next few statements to Mr. Colbert himself. Stephen, I know that Conan's audience was quieter than a room full of Washington Correspondents, but come on - they PURPOSEFULLY WATCH CONAN O'BRIEN. Of course they are not your people. You should know, Stephen, that we were screaming and cheering at home. We get the D&D references, we're jealous that you went to GenCon (we haven't yet), and in our tribe the more you know about Tolkien the COOLER you are. Heck, if it wasn't 2 in the morning on a work night I'd get out the LOTR dvds to see if your name is in the credits.

By the way, Stephen, I'm about to start the first paladin I've played in over 20 years. If you have any advice you can leave it in the comments or drop me a line at

p.s. Don't forget about the celebrity D&D thing. We totally need to do that. Call me.

Virginia Governor Knows How to Represent

In a move that probably surprised Virginia Republicans since it was all logical and stuff, Governor Kaine proves that he gets it.

"Nearly two weeks ago, Republicans in the House of Delegates stripped 22 (m) million dollars that Democratic Governor Tim Kaine amended into the state budget.

Kaine is on a statewide tour today to illustrate what the cuts will mean for projects as diverse as sewage overflow systems and child daycare." ~ WAVY

Blogroll, Please...

I haven't introduced the additions to my blogroll in awhile, but I've recently rearranged my sidebar and I know that this entry will be far enough down you might not notice - and it is definitely worth noticing. Without further ado, please welcome to the blogosphere, The Bean Mines featuring the adventures of Subspace, a barista from a Seattle coffeehouse that is NOT Starbucks. Her own company she lovingly refers to as The Underverse. If you've ever been a barista, had a latte, hung out in a coffeehouse, or are just curious about the life of coffee, Subspace can entertain. I have filed her in my new bloglist "You've Been Served" along with the now-famous Waiter Rant. I'm sure one day The Bean Mines will be selling t-shirts, too.
