It's amazing the kind of things I can get accomplished when I put my mind to it. Take today for instance. I dragged myself out of bed at 10 a.m. actually managed to get a few things organized in my room, read the newspaper and eat breakfast before noon. Shocking, I know. After I got sick of watching our local newscast gushing about W's visit to the area tomorrow (oh there will be a big old entry about that) I finally got myself to the bank, the post office and the cemetery. All places I needed to visit. Each with varying degrees of enthusiasm. I saved my trip to the cemetery for last, as I haven't visited Kevin's grave in a long time and I had a lot to talk to him about. God, the workers there must have thought I was nuts, having an extended, very one sided conversation with a grave marker. It helped though. Just like when he was alive, talking things out with my dear friend kind of set my mind straight about a few things. Good lord do I miss him. Sigh.

Anyway, I eventually made it in to the office where I knocked down two, count 'em two, obit stories in the span of two hours and got assigned another one at the last minute. Sadly the third one doesn't look like it's going to come through. Bah. Oh well, that's the breaks. To top it off I'm so hopped up on the frozen caramel machiato from Sparky & Clarks I'm practically vibrating. Woo-hoo!

Damn I'm good.

Not much going on this weekend. Working at the lobster tomorrow night and Saturday during the day. I don't know how to act, I'm actually going to have a Saturday night and Sunday morning all to my self this weekend! Shocking, I know. The room mate wants to go see Anchhorman or Spider Man 2 Saturday night so that's probably going to be my big excitement. I'd be more partial toward Anchorman but I'll go with the flow. Doesn't really matter to me.

With that I leave you with this, found again on the every lovely Joelle's site:

20 Questions to a Better Personality

Wackiness: 54/100
Rationality: 46/100
Constructiveness: 68/100
Leadership: 76/100

You are a WECL--Wacky Emotional Constructive Leader. This makes you a people's advocate. You are passionate about your causes, with a good heart and good endeavors. Your personal fire is contagious, and others wish they could be as dedicated to their beliefs as you are.

Your dedication may cause you to miss the boat on life's more slight and trivial activities. You will feel no loss when skipping some inane mixer, but it can be frustrating to others to whom such things are important. While you find it difficult to see other points of view, it may be useful to act as if you do, and play along once in a while.

In any event, you have buckets of charisma and a natural skill for making people open up. Your greatest asset is an ability to make progress while keeping the peace.

I definitely thought my wackiness score would be higher than that. Oh well. Guess it just depends on what day you hit me!
