It's so funny how I was checking out the bloggy buds and so many of us are in the "got nothing to write about" rut. It's like blog flu or something. Actually, blogging is much more amenable to winter time when you've got lots of indoor time. All I want to do these days is get outside. So I do. But then I get home and check my feeds and there's five hundred new posts in the queue and Ugh, I just don't have the energy to face it so I go do something else. I keep fantasizing about becoming a lurker. No more posts to make, no more commenting necessary. How divine to just be a consumer instead of a creator. But then I realize it's all take and no give and that's really no way to run one's life. I've cut my blogging in half which was on my goals list this year, so I'm happy about that.
Hey guess what? I'm 44 today.
I don't know what spouse bought me but I know he went out shopping yesterday. I know that I asked for an ipod docking slash stereo system so that we could have our music in other parts of the house than just the computer room. I got one of those wireless speakers for that reason but the signal is so easily interrupted that it gets squelchy all the time. No bueno. He said something to me yesterday like, "I guess we are going out to dinner." I told him only if I get to pick. He hates this because I always pick a place I know and love. He always wants to try a new place, too bad, he can do that on HIS birthday. I think I want to go to Saloon. It's been a while and they recently renovated. First though, I've got to go to work and keep practicing the verb Be with my student.
Finally today, I invite you to take this little quiz to determine how your thinking matches with existing religious ideologies. You can take the quiz here which I learned of from this guy.
Here are my top 10 results since the rest seem irrelevant:
1. Unitarian Universalism (100%)
2. Mahayana Buddhism (97%)
3. Neo-Pagan (95%)
4. Liberal Quakers (92%)
5. Taoism (91%)
6. New Age (90%)
7. Theravada Buddhism (90%)
8. Hinduism (80%)
9. Scientology (76%)
10. Secular Humanism (72%)
Secular Humanism is the new term for Atheist in case you didn't know. My top score was Unitarian Universalism which basically is an open minded religion that encourages its followers to seek their own spiritual paths. Precisely. We are all different and therefore all have unique spiritual roads to travel. Those eastern faiths rank pretty high, I should probably add those to my reading lists. Or go to India or something. Happy hump day peeps!
