Thanks to crinklequirk


You Are Kids Playing
You are a free spirited soul. More than anything else, you are often just happy to be alive.
You are always laid back and cheerful. You enjoy whatever happens to come your way.

You are spontaneous and zany. You're the kind of adult who still runs through the sprinklers.
You don't take life too seriously. You try to have fun at all times, even when you're working.

Thanks to crinklequirk for making me take this one. :)


Your result for The Steampunk Style Test...

The Gadgeteer

32% Elegant, 59% Technological, 57% Historical, 52% Adventurous and 17% Playful!

You are the Gadgeteer, the embodiment of steampunk technology. Ironically, many of the things that most define your style are probably too large to easily carry about, but given the opportunity you would prefer to be seen surrounded by boiler engines, gear-driven calculators, and incredible automata. Of all the steampunk fashion styles, you place the greatest emphasis on technological accessories, and you are the most likely to create elaborate gadgets that are as much a part of your outfit as your clothes. You probably have goggles, but unlike most people you consider them to be for more than decoration. Whereas most people might look odd carrying a satchel of tools around, for you they may well be essential. Above all, you remind everyone that what sets the genre apart from Victoriana is simply the level of technology.

This meme yoinked from crinklequirk.



Your Spiritual Number is Five



You bring adventure and change to people's lives.

You are willing to challenge your friends and push them to grow.



Right now, your life is about figuring out where to direct your energy.

If you're not careful, you can become too unreliable or flighty. You need the perfect project.



You live a free form life - which allows you to be very innovative and a great problem solver.

Rules, schedules, and structure practically destroy you. You have to do things your own way.

Looks like Frank Miller is Turner Classic Movies' guest programmer this month. You might remember him from his comic book career, or perhaps his string of blockbuster movies. Either way, he is picking out some classic films for TCM.

Those of you who know me know that I'm not normally one to complain about these things, but it really does strike me that ConAgra (parent company for Healthy Choice) has taken a couple of steps back. Their latest marketing campaign for Asian cuisine feels like it came out of the 70's when such racist portrayals were common. I really don't think that they (or for that matter their advertising company) realize just how insulting their campaign is.

Take a look for yourself >>

And here I thought we had gotten past these stupid caricatures.

Thanks to my DW crinklequirk for pointing this out.

A little while back, my DW decided to participate in a contest over at Jim Hines' livejournal. Essentially, Jim is asking for people to submit images of various people/critters holding his books. The prize is an advanced reader copy of his new book "The Stepsister Scheme."

Well, she spent lots of time doing a photo shoot and working on background images, and I think she came up with a really good entry.

So, go to the polls and vote for her Batman entry. (Okay, you can vote for other people's entries too, but make sure you vote for hers!)

Anyway, here is the link:
