If these tests are to be trusted, then apparently I am quite balanced, mentally speaking. Interesting.

You Are 55% Left Brained, 45% Right Brained

The left side of your brain controls verbal ability, attention to detail, and reasoning.

Left brained people are good at communication and persuading others.

If you're left brained, you are likely good at math and logic.

Your left brain prefers dogs, reading, and quiet.

The right side of your brain is all about creativity and flexibility.

Daring and intuitive, right brained people see the world in their unique way.

If you're right brained, you likely have a talent for creative writing and art.

Your right brain prefers day dreaming, philosophy, and sports.

You Are Cookie Monster

Misunderstood as a primal monster, you're a true hedonist with a huge sweet tooth.

You are usually feeling: Hungry. Cookies are preferred, but you'll eat anything if cookies aren't around.

You are famous for: Your slightly crazy eyes and usual way of speaking

How you life your life: In the moment. "Me want COOKIE!"

Taking my cue from Loop de Loops (Kay), I took the above quiz. Those who know me know I can't resist a quiz, especially a personality quiz. I keep taking them, hoping to get a different answer, but no...I am consistently consistent. Oh, and I love COOKIE MONSTER, so I guess it's good that I am him.

Oh, yeah, and I am hungry!

Where In The World......

would I like to be right now?

If money were no object, I would love to go to Europe. Not just one country, but lots of them...Portugal, Spain, Germany, France, Switzerland, Ireland, Austria, and Italy. I would also love to go to Israel.

I want to walk on streets where history was made. I want to see the ports the navigators sailed from, praying they wouldn't fall off the edge of the Earth. I want to see the site where the Berlin wall once stood. I want to see the Eiffel Tower and the vineyards of France. I want to see the Swiss Alps. I want to see the rolling green of Ireland and kiss the Blarney Stone. I would love to visit Rome and see the ancient ruins. And I would love to visit Israel and see firsthand where the Biblical accounts actually happened! How cool would that be?

Alas, these are but pipe dreams, as there is no way I could ever afford it. So, instead, I fix my eyes on Heaven, which no doubt is infinitely more beautiful than anything we could ever hope to see on Earth.
