I have returned

My trip to Boston ended up being a very enjoyable time, despite the fact that the city truly conspires against me. This time, however, I have a witness; waystone can attest to the fact that Boston re-arranges itself, Dark City style, to provide me with the hardest time it possibly can. When combined with the propensity of many of the streets to carry any identifying information or of route signage to be incomplete at best, it makes navigating the area difficult even with the most specific set of instructions.

However, janetweiss69 has provided me with reliable instructions on several occasions, including the route that I now use whenever I visit suitboyskin. The trip formerly took me about four and a half hours, this route shaves that down to three and a half. Three and a half hours is, actually, a pretty managable time to spend in a car. Four and a half is just too damn much. One's ass feels like a melted Jell-o Pudding Pop at the conclusion of such a journey. Nowadays, however, it's just a matter of deciding what I want to listen to (which, in this case, turned out to be a lot of John Williams).

This trip would have been a serious pain had it not been for the EZ Pass.

However, I am now safe at home, getting ready for work tomorrow () and resetting all of my clocks. Oh, and the new issue of Skeptic has arrived. suitboyskin tantilized me with excerpts from I Claudius, which I now must track down and obtain in some cost-effective manner.

It was a very good weekend. It was nice to be able to see all of the people I did. And Kato, too, who was all over me, especially at night. Which was nice, he slept on my feet and kept them warm.

La-La-Land is releasing Jerome Moross' The Big Country!!! I have the Silva re-recording (which is pretty damn good), but I missed out on their release of the original tracks; this is apparently been significantly cleaned up from that release, too. This is up there with the release of the original tracks of Elmer Bernstein's The Magnificent Seven as one of the scores that really nailed that Copland sound for the genre.

The Part of You That No One Sees

You are powerful, passionate, and dominant.
You have a vision of how things should be, and you do your best to make things happen.
People rely on you for your strength. You are a rock to many.

Underneath it all, you aren't so sure about your passions.
So many ideas spark your interest, it is hard for you to get behind a select few.
However, you see indecision as a sign of weakness. So you pursue your goals full force - no matter how foolish they turn out to be.

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 traditional than rebel, 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 intellectual (87%), romantic (86%), artistic (62%), horny (56%).

Punk Rock67%
Old Geezer50%
Life Experience

Your political views would best be described as Liberal, whom you agree with around 86% of the time.
Your attitude toward life best associates you with Working Class. You make more than 0% of those who have taken this test, and 37% more than the U.S. average.

If your life was a movie, it would be rated PG-13.
By the way, your hottness rank is 50%, hotter than 72% of other test takers.
