new year's eve

Oh, good... I'm a paper pusher!

So this was day two of training for my temporary position. So far, I'm not sure why this would have taken someone eight days to learn... it seems fairly redundant. Just take decent notes, then follow 'em. Maybe there's more to it still? Maybe it's just me...

I really should put the cam on once in a while, but I just really like that Titus pic! I can always put that up again, I suppose.

A thunderous crash came from outside. Instinctively, I looked over to the balcony. There she was again, perched upon the railing. Her immense, dark cloak billowed in the ever-increasing winds, leaving no discernable shape save her face and flowing silver-gray hair. As with each time before, she seemed lost in thought as she stared eastward. A smile slowly crept onto my face as I walked towards her. Anticipation grew in my gut.

"Don't get me wrong. I always love it when you visit, but there's something I've never understood." I paused, unsure of how to continue. Finally, it came to me. "What draws you here?" I asked. "Why do you always come when the weather turns? Do you enjoy the rain, as I do? Or is it the thunder and lightening, the raw, seething power that you thrive on? You figure that if you sit up here like that, you'll be a part of the storm?"

She glanced sideways at me, neither smirk nor scowl on her face.

"No... it's far more simple than that." A spark flashed across her eyes. "I am the storm."

new year's eve

Time for a few fart jokes!

...or another personality test, whichever comes first...

I am most likely a white personality, with a weak secondary yellow. What does that mean, you ask? I'm so glad you wanna participate!

Whites Are Motivated By Peace
Whites will do almost anything to avoid confrontation. They like to flow through life without hassle or discomfort. Feeling good is even more important to them than being good.

Whites Need Kindness
While Whites respond beautifully to thoughtfulness and amiability, they have a strong, silent stubbornness that surfaces when they are treated unkindly. They resent being scolded. They dislike harsh words. They open up instantly to people who are kind, but Whites recoil from those who are hostile. They are motivated by kindness - and can't understand why other people are unkind.

Whites Prefer Quiet Strength
White enjoy their quiet independence. What appears to some people as quiet desperation can show itself to be bullheadedness. Those who misinterpret the peace-loving nature of a White as an invitation to be demanding and bossy will soon meet a wall of passive resistance, Whites are tougher than people think.

Whites Like To Keep A Low Profile
White like to be asked their opinions. They won't volunteer them. They value the respect of others, but they rarely go out of their way to seek it. They need to be coaxed to talk about their skills, hobbies, and interests.

Whites Are Independent
Unlike Reds and Blues, who want to control others, Whites seek only to avoid being controlled. They simply refuse to be under another's thumb, especially when treated without the respect they feel they deserve. Whites want to do things their own way, in their own time. They don't ask much of others, and resent it when others demand things from them. They often comply with unreasonable demands - just to keep peace. They will express their anger and frustration only when they can no longer stand being bossed around. Whites don't like to be pushed, and they can be fearsome when they finally "blow up."

Whites Are Motivated By Other People's Desires
Whites are open to the recommendations of others on ways to resolve any and all situations. White executives value new management ideas from employees. White children welcome help - they are receptive students. White make agreeable dates. They are interested in making sure the other person has a good time, and are willing to do whatever the other person wants. Whites, however, want suggestions - not demands.

I know... that didn't mention anything about the yellow... well, here ya go:

If White and Yellow are your two strong colors, you possess the best people skills of all the personalities. You are relaxed and usually take the path of least resistance. You do not experience much conflict between your colors, despite the different motives represented by each. You are comfortable with your blend and present an inviting atmosphere to those around you.
