Things to do INSTEAD of writing & Friday Fun

Item #2 on my list of things to do instead of writing is... (drumroll please) WORK.

Don't my bosses know that I want to spend my day either writing or surfing the internet??? I mean, come on... who wants to work, especially on a Friday. Aren't customers all supposed to be quiet on Friday anyway?

"Sigh" I do like my job, though. I get to work from home and I do a lot of project work so I've got a lot of variety. Every now and then though, the snowball rolls down from above and drags every second of my day with it.

FRIDAY FUN!!! Woo It's Friday; It's Friday. Yay!

It's Friday and that means we all need something to have a little fun. For those people that enjoy speculative fiction, The Electric Spec Editor Blog is a nice spot to check out, and they seem quite nice. Most of the writers that are blog freaks like me already know about the Rejecter, a new blogger in the world of literary agents. Rejecter is certainly on my daily stop list.

If you like those internet tests that tell you about yourself because you aren't sure who you are exactly - Similar Minds has quite a few personality and "brain" tests.

I took the personality disorder test... why? Well, I seem to be fascinated by a variety of different things and who doesn't want a label these days? I thought everyone had one... "I'm ADD" or "I'm OCD" or "Well, I'm suffering post traumatic stress from a fender bender that happened to me 10 years ago...." Labels are the IN thing. So, here is what Similar Minds told me about myself. I'm not really sure what it all means... and really, how can a website diagnose me in 55 questions... but hey! Let's go with it.

I'm not really sure what the heck Schizotypal is... but it's not a very pretty word. I think I'll have to keep searching for my label. My interest has waned and I'm on to other things.... Like tacky halloween one-liners... here ya go!

Do zombies eat popcorn with their fingers?
No, they eat the fingers separately...

Why don't skeletons ever go out on the town?
Because they don't have any body to go out with...

What do ghosts add to their morning cereal?

What is a vampire's favorite sport?

What is a vampire's favorite holiday?

What would a monster's psychiatrist be called?

What did one ghost say to the other ghost?
"Do you believe in people?"

People with personality disorders are NO FUN in the workplace...

...one woman I work with is trying to get me fired for the crime of being 1) younger than her, 2) not being her. :o/

I totally hear you on the Friday "I SO should be writing right now!" feeling.

Lol! Thanks Jeff Worm. I don't really think I'm Schizotypal... I was going for the humor factor :D

I hear you Unpretentious, I joke about it sometimes because I worked with a sociopath. It was a wild WILD ride...

If you don't mind me asking, how did you get through the situation?

I work for a not-for-profit in an 'at will' state, and my company will do nothing. At this point, my options are the EEOC and ACLU.

I don't mind you asking at all Unpretentious. It's tough when you are stuck between your livilihood and your morals/ethical integrity.

I'm going to send you an email. I wouldn't want to "violate confidentiality" and get myself in trouble. My previous employer is quite litigious.

Laughed at the Zombie/Finger joke. And I love the Rejecter, except I want to spell it REJECTOR

Most highly creative types will come out as schizotypal and it isn't actually a disorder unless it interferes with your life to the point of making you dysfunctional. :-)

We all have bits of different types but that's part of being human.

I'm even more sch. than you are! LOL Maybe I should post my results in my blog, also.

:) You should list your results, hehehehe.

Thanks for the comment. I agree that artistic/creative type folks look at the world slightly differently and it wouldn't surprise me to see them having higher than normal scores on some of the "disorder" types.
