the not political stuff

i love IM for surreptitious office banter. tonight there was this increibly annoying guy a few cubes over talking on the phone, and he was talking SO LOUD it was like he was standing there yelling. every time i tried to talk to one of my coworkers he'd start talking EVEN LOUDER as if i was somehow causing him trouble. coworker number one is currently being crippled by hand pain so he refuses to get on IM, so i couldn't send him goofy jokes about the yelling guy. this made me sad.

a version of the myers-briggs test/kiersey temperament sorter.

Extraverted (E) 61% Introverted (I) 39%
Intuitive (N) 68% Sensing (S) 32%
Feeling (F) 90% Thinking (T) 10%
Judging (J) 50% Perceiving (P) 50%

the extravert thing is not common for me, but the rest of it basically hasn't changed since 1997. prior to 1997, i was a staunch INTJ, extreme in all categories. when i went to college, i believe i basically had a nervous breakdown, although no one used those words at the time. forever after that i have been almost completely a 'feeler'. during that time i also swung from P to J, but i'm still not sure exactly why. i have always had a fondness for the myers-briggs test. la!

less than 2 hours until my weekend. i will be so glad to be not required to report to work for two days. this weekend promises to be very low stress. book club is on monday. rock! i have so many things to be thankful for, i feel very good about all of them. but yeah... i have been riled up the past few days, and seem to be only getting more riled. reading the autobiography of malcolm x today and i read the quote, "You will never catch me with a free fifteen minutes in which I'm not studying something I feel might be able to help the black man." it struck me. i wish i could live like that, in a way. part of me wishes that.
