O.K. I had to try this.

meme )

O.K. So I'll admit I added a few (totally legitimate) interests after I first saw the results (Me? Class non-conformist? Below-average weirdness? Huh? ;)).

I still think the herdlike and normal are a little high, but I think the weirdness level here on LJ is higher than the average anyway, which probably explains it.

That's the sound of me falling over from exhaustion after the last week of classes. Finals start next week, but by some really bizarre stroke of luck I only have 2 finals coming up, one for 3d modeling/Maya and one for my MIDI class, both practical type finals that don't require studying. Don't ask me how I got off so easily when I'm taking 17 credits!

It's been a rough week, though. My guitar final was Tuesday (and the final quiz for my game design class). Plus it got really cold here and I still had an air conditioner in my window and got cold and have felt sick for the past few days. I may leave work and head home soon since I feeling like I'd fading pretty fast now. I get to work a lot more hours next week at least!

What Kind of Reader Are You?
Your Result: Dedicated Reader

You are always trying to find the time to get back to your book. You are convinced that the world would be a much better place if only everyone read more.

This is a list of the 50 most significant science fiction/fantasy novels, 1953-2002, according to the Science Fiction Book Club. The instructions seem to be different for everyone posting these things, so I'll bold what I read and italicize the ones I own but haven't read yet (the only one I never finished was Red Mars, which I finally gave up on about 150 pages in because it was boring politics and I had no sympathy for the characters other than one minor one, which fortunately isn't on the list). I put asterisks next to some of my favorites, although some of them I read too long ago to be sure.

Yes, I read/own a lot of books. How did you guess?;) Actually a few I wasn't entirely sure of because I may have read them a while ago and forgotten, but this should be pretty close.

You paid attention during 86% of high school!

85-100% You must be an autodidact, because American high schools don't get scores that high! Good show, old chap!

Do you deserve your high school diploma?

You know, that's pretty close to my average in H.S. Of course I was never the type to do a lot of studying and try for A's. I got by just fine doing the reading the night before tests;).

At least my GPA is much higher now!

So I decided to try out that celebrity face recognition thing

See the results here )

So I guess I look like Julianne Moore. I can live with that:). I used to watch As The World Turns a LONG time ago when she was on it. I don't get the Roberto Benigni one. I had to take off Lance Bass and Kirstie Allsopp (whoever that is) to make room because looking like Carl Sagan was just cool and looking like David Letterman was funny:).

You Belong in San Francisco

You crave an eclectic, urban environment. You're half California, half NYC.
You're open minded, tolerant, and secretly think you're the best.
People may dismiss you as a hippie, but you're also progressive, interesting, and rich!

Did I ever mention how much I HATE San Francisco/the Bay Area? I belong right here in Los Angeles. Some day I might write up a rant on why people in the Bay Area are incredibly rude (a few friends up there excepted). The whole attitude up there can be be defined by one thing that was actually said to me: "Oh, you're from L.A.? I'm SORRY." in a really insulting tone. It really feels like they look down on anyone that's not them (Los Angeles especially, but not exclusively). Personally I've found people in L.A. to be MUCH friendlier! I'm not saying everyone up there is like that, but it's definitely the prevailing attitude.

The Bay Area is a nice place to visit for cons and things like that, but hell would have to literally freeze over for me to even consider living there again.

About the only true thing about this is the half NYC part, being an ex-NYer.:) The quiz was pretty flawed, though. How could I choose between 5 different bands when I'd only ever heard anything by 1 of them and didn't even like that one. Some of us gave up on the radio back in 1991-92 and never looked back.;)

...but I wasn't quite expecting this:

My computer geek score is greater than 100% of all people in the world! How do you compare? Click here to find out!

Of course I could program all those languages (including Assembly, but probably not without references. I did do 68000 assembly in my last EE class).

If I were a NetHack monster, I would be a little dog. I'm a loyal and trusting companion, always ready to protect my friends. Even if they do feed me tripe, sometimes.
Which NetHack Monster Are You?

I love that game:).

In other news I've somehow managed to come down with another nasty cold/flu type thing that's finally been downgraded to a nasty cold since my temperature is finally back to normal instead of hovering around 100 degrees. Not good when I have classes, work, a Dream Theater concert to go to tomorrow night, and a flight out to NY on Tuesday. At least my Lunacon hotel is taken care of. My parents will be driving out with me so I just got a room for the 3 of us. Fortunately they still had rooms available, although I got stuck with a smoking room:(. Let's hope it doesn't smell too much.

I need to remember to put music on when I'm really having trouble waking up. It really does help. And damn, this new Shadow Gallery CD is good! It's the sequel to their concept album Tyranny, which is a great album, so I was looking forward to this one! I shouldn't have waited so long to get it, but I'm still amazed at how fast it got here. I ordered the 2-cd version from Action Records in the U.K. (through GEMM) and they e-mailed that it was shipped on August 11th and it showed up on August 14th! And it was only a few days after I ordered it that they e-mailed that it was shipped, so it wasn't just them putting off letting me know it was shipped, either.

I might go back and retake that last quiz sometime when I'm more awake and my brain is awake enough to think about the answers more. Some of those questions really would depend on parts of the situation they didn't mention, though. Oh, well. It's probably not worth it.

I'm going to use one of the new icons I uploaded for this one. I figured if I have a permenent account now I should have more than 2 of them:).

Damn, that HTML code sucks, though. I could do much better with a lot less tables.
