7 really quick takes
1- Hey! It's the Magnetic Fields! "True I'm in love with you but you might decide I'm a nut. Give me a week or two to go absolutely cuckoo."
2 - Here's a little introvert appreciation article from the Atlantic. When I take personality tests I always come out an introvert, though I am pretty close to even between extrovert and introvert. I think that's called a "slightly expressed introvert" or something like that. Anyways, the line I most identify with is this one: (many actors, I've read, are introverts, and many introverts, when socializing, feel like actors. When I worked in Admissions and campus ministry I always felt like I had to "turn myself to on" when I went to work. I was definitely acting the part of a cheerful, outgoing hostess and it was exhausting!
What are you? Introvert or extrovert? And if you tell me you're a choleric phlegmatic I'm not going to know what you're talking about and just say, "Bless you."
3 - Currently I am 1/2 dressed (as in wearing my nightgown and jeans) and ignoring the dishes that need to be done. Whoops.
4 - If you liked #1 then may I recommend The Book of Love, I Think I Need a New Heart, and Abigail, Belle of Kilronan also by The Magnetic Fields.
5- The kids were potty training a teddy bear this morning and he accidentally fell in the toilet. Clean water, a toilet that was scrubbed really well on Tuesday. Do I throw the bear away? Try to wash it? Let it dry and call it good enough? What would you do?
6 - Tomorrow is a party for my two brothers. Recently they have both been promoted at work. The talents and knowledge they bring to their work are really impressive and I'm glad they have both been recognized. I'm very proud of my brothers - they are excellent men.
7 - My most stunning recent accomplishment is that I did not over eat at lunch yesterday. Yay for me!
