So I'm a 9

Found this on Facebook today. Apparently I’m a 9. Here’s what it means…

9’s are natural entertainers. They are very caring and generous, giving away their last dollar to help. With their charm they have no problem making friends and nobody is a stranger to them. They have so many different personalities that people around them have a hard time understanding them. They are like chameleons, ever changing and blending in. They have tremendous luck, but also can suffer from extremes in fortune and mood. To be successful they need to build a loving foundation.

Interesting. I laughed when it said ‘no problem making friends,’ but as I read, it made sense, and actually was more accurate. Interesting…food for thought for the night I guess. Not like my mind needs stimulus form this and bittersweet Coldplay at the same time. Ooh, double-teamed by sorrow! Double-sorrow’d. …Watched Season 2 of The Guild today, and half of Season 1 as a recap and to show the roommate. Laughed pretty good at both. Yea.

O’Reilly Hacks Series

I discovered this while perusing filmmaking books on Amazon and thought it was a sweet idea. I really don’t know what O’Reilly’s reputation is, but I’ve heard the name and seen the label many a time over the years, so I can only imagine they’re doing something right. Anyway, the “Hacks” series sounded pretty sweet, so I wanted to pass it on. I know I’m going to go through the list and pillage their supply of books, adding it to my wishlist :P.

Moonlit Madness

Well, here’s lovely Chapter 3 in my series in the “Well… What Would You Do?” series. I had to give the overall piece of work a name the other day to submit it to another site, so I decided on that, because I kind of think that’s what the story’s about, in part, just playing with people (characters) and seeing what they’ll do in a situation. It’s a fun journey to throw them on, and fun to explore the parts of my mind I haven’t really let out of the hatch yet ;). Enjoy.

NOTE: I’m also splitting them up now, so you’ll get a brief intro for the story and then just click on the “Read More” link at the bottom of this post and you’ll see the whole thing, just so it doesn’t take up my entire main blog page. Otherwise, keep reading!

Lizzy stood there in the hot dry desert, dumbfounded. Alex was waiting for a sign.

“How did we not notice the sand from the doorway?” Lizzy was walking back to the back door now, curious at how she could have managed to miss the fact that they were in a desert, but still in the same house. “It’s like the whole house just got up and-”
