Around the Web

I've been spending a quiet Sunday afternoon catching up with my friends here in cyberspace! Christmas has been celebrated around the globe with such creativity, beauty, goodwill and feasting!

A couple things of interest I shall pass on...

It's a Lucy Maud Montgomery Reading Challenge!

Don't know who LMM is??

She's the author of Anne of Green Gables and a host of other delightful stories. Carrie explains here why YOU should read her--for the first time or the fiftieth!

And if you think you've read everything by her...have you read The Blue Castle? It's a personal favorite of mine, about a girl who mistakenly gets a letter from her doctor telling her she has only a year to live, and how she stops living only to please others.

And now...

Something for you bloggers...

A personality test for your blog!

The Typealyzer analyzes your writing and tells you the personality type (on the Myers-Briggs grid) of your public, writing self. It turns out mine is almost the opposite of my actual personality, which is INTJ...

You are ESFP, the Performer.

The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead - they are always in risk of exhausting themselves.

The enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation - qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions.

Other than the bit about not liking to plan ahead, I think this is a fairly decent description of my public, written communication. And isn't it a good thing that there are no employees of this here blog? :)

And best of all...

My sis-in-love is expecting!!!

"I hope she has a boy," one of my kids said. "So far, we only have girl cousins!!"

Count me in for the LMM challenge! I'm not sure which one (or 2 or 3)I'll read yet though. The Blue Castle is a favourite of mine too.

Now I'm off to take my test :)

I just tried out the blog personality test. According to the test, my writing personality and my real personality are nothing alike. Thanks for the link!
