How Republican are you?!

Cute test...I got a good chuckle out of it!

I am:
"You're probably one of those chicken-littles who thinks maybe we should worry a little bit, occasionally, about the fate of the planet that our lives all depend on."

Are You A Republican?

I found a nice piece by Bach that isn't too difficult for me to play. It's Minuet in G. However, I haven't added all the bass notes yet...that does increase the difficulty quite a bit. :)

If you have suggestions for easy guitar pieces, please leave me a note!

Masculine of Feminine

Keep in mind, this is the "traditional" definition of the words.
I'm pretty happy with being 50-50!
You Are 48% Feminine, 52% Masculine

You are in touch with both your feminine and masculine sides.
You're sensitive at the right times, but you don't let your emotions overwhelm you.
You're not a eunuch, just the best of both genders.

What kind of wine are you?

The funny thing is, Merlot is one of my least favorite wines. :)

You Are Merlot

Smooth, confident, and popular - you're the type most likely to order wine for the whole group.
You seem to breeze through life on your intuition and wit. And no one seems to mind!
You're comfortable in any social situation you find yourself in, and you never feel outclassed.
And while you live a charmed life, you never let it go to your head. You are truly down to earth and a great friend.

Deep down you are: Balanced and mature

Your partying style: Surprisingly wild... when you let loose, you really let loose

Your company is enjoyed best with: Some greasy pizza

Non-Conformist or Conformist?

You Are 65% Non Conformist

You are a pretty serious non conformist. You live a life hardly anyone understands.
And while some may call you a freak, you're happy with who you are.

Too funny...Fox boxing. some friends of mine, that normally invite me to anything they do on the weekend, conveniently left me out of their plans for Friday. That's actually good, by the way, since I've got so much to do this weekend. I always hate having to decline an invitation...even if it's to something I'd rather not do. When I asked what their plans were for tonight, they mentioned they were going out w/mutual friends to see mutual friend's sister fox-box. Fox box? I'd never even heard of this!

I'm not a huge boxing fan...but that's a story for another day. Anyhow, it turns out this is where mutual friend's sister actually works. So I ask: "Oh, she works at a boxing gym?"
"No, Jim", my friend replied. "She works at a strip club."

Ah, got I understand why I wasn't invited. :) Life is good!

Volleyball going good...

Both teams, the intramural team I played on, and the base team I coached, finished the season undefeated. :) Nice feeling.
