2 Fun Links

First, the Friday Feast, a day late…

Appetizer: How fast can you type?
I think around 60 words/minute, but that’s a guess, since I’m self-taught.

Soup: What is your favorite online game?
Uh oh…Gold Miner. I’m addicted!

Salad: On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 as highest), how intelligent do you think you are?
Wow, that depends on how you define intelligence. IQ? Street smarts? Emotional intelligence? I’ll leave it somewhere between 8 and 9.

Main Course: Name three of your best teachers from your school years.Mrs. Atkinson (2nd grade) ~ kindest woman ever. Mr. Allen (10th and 12th grade English) ~ a brilliant writer and teacher, today a playwright and the reason I enjoy drama as much as I do. Dr. McDonald (my Shakespeare prof from college) ~ taught me to write (academically, anyway) and how to truly appreciate the Bard.

Dessert: What are your plans for this upcoming weekend?
Oh, sleep, please. I’m terribly deprived after the last 2 weeks. And I really want to finish my latest WIP, One Night in Memphis. I only have about 3000 more words to go, so I think I can do it!


Second, a fun Numerology reading of my birth name (which is not my pen name, by the way, but I’m not sharing). Thanks to Marianne for the link!

Expression: 58 / 13 / 4 You are the builder of the world. With your organized, efficient approach everything gets done right the first time. You emanate security and would sacrifice your own desires for your family and anyone or anything else that you considered a responsibility. You have a relentless eye for value and quality and you have the patience and determination to work for it.

Soul Urge: 30 / 3 Your urge is to bring hope, joy and beauty to all you meet. You feel the best when you are in beautiful and comfortable surroundings. You have a creative essence and use your inspiration and imagination to make others happy. You enjoy attention and admiration, and you desire recognition for your talents.

Personality: 28 / 10 / 1 Others see you as a unique individual who always does their "own thing". Independent, capable and pioneering, you seem to take control of the situation and make it run effectively. You are very concerned with your image and always seem to dress in a way that gets noticed.'s scary how accurate this really is...

Appetizer: In my prime I could type 120 wpm and I am definitely not in my prime

Soup: Used to be online poker it is now DEFINITELY Yahtzee - I waste way too much time

Salad: Sometimes when dealing with others I think it is pretty high but other times when dealing with very young children I think not really that high at all

Main Course: My second grade teacher who was very kind and recognized that I worked hard.
My ecology teacher in college who was very encouraging and made me really aware of my place in the environment.
Most important, although not a teacher by trade, my supervisor when I worked in NYC, who realized I had potential and absolutely is the reason I ever decided to go to college and beyond.

Dessert: Relax, go out to dinner and maybe put away some winter clothes - I think the warm weather is here to stay!! YEAH

Thanks for the Numerology game!!
