Quizzing for lazy bloggers

I’m stuck in the frozen tundra of week 4 of NaNoWriMo and, for the first time in two weeks, I’m slightly ahead of the pace.

So, in lieu of regular blogging (and with the promise of a truly awesome post-NaNoWriMo post PLUS the entirety of the novel out in the open) you gets this and doesn’t complains.

Your result for Howard Gardner’s Eight Types of Intelligence Test…


18% Logical, 10% Spatial, 51% Linguistic, 59% Intrapersonal, 8% Interpersonal, 37% Musical, 12% Bodily-Kinesthetic and 51% Naturalistic!

“This area has to do with introspective and self-reflective capacities. Those who are strongest in this intelligence are typically introverts and prefer to work alone. They are usually highly self-aware and capable of understanding their own emotions, goals and motivations. They often have an affinity for thought-based pursuits such as philosophy. They learn best when allowed to concentrate on the subject by themselves. There is often a high level of perfectionism associated with this intelligence.

Careers which suit those with this intelligence include philosophers, psychologists, theologians, writers and scientists.” (Wikipedia)

By the by, it’s pretty spot on for me.

Flotsam and jetsam


My day has been beset by a seemingly open calendar going all to hell with tiny, inconsequential tasks and “to-do” items.

In return, I give you the blog post equivalent of chewing gum.

First, I would make it longer than 60 seconds were I chained to a bunk bed with a velociraptor. Cold comfort, since I’m still lunch, but still:

I could survive for 1 minute, 25 seconds chained to a bunk bed with a velociraptor

If you’re asking yourself, “Has the Large Hadron Collider destroyed the world yet?” well, multiple things are wrong. Thankfully, you didn’t buy a domain devoted to answering your question.

Lastly, you’re no one if you’re not on Twitter! Which must be true since there’s a song involved.

Tuesday Video Roundup

NOT a regular thing, just struggling for a metaphor to take my mind off of lazy blogging post-Hawaii.

Here’s what I’m digging today:

Lego is full of Win [Via Wonderland]:

The Diablo III Cinematic and Gameplay videos.

They only make we want to play more video games, especially Diablo II, World of Warcraft and, strangely enough, Spore.

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog Teaser:

Teaser from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog on Vimeo.

I’m apologizing after the fact for clogging up my own post with embed videos, but this little blog experiment got me to thinking: what causes someone to embed video?

Are certain kinds of people apt to embed?
Are certain categories of video more embed-friendly?

It also begs the question: why aren’t you embedding video about your favorite TV show or the TV shows of your employer?

Good questions, all.

I seem to favor geeky, game-y and internet comedy videos but maybe those are just my personal preferences. I certainly watched a TON of So You Think You Can Dance & Design Star videos (don’t judge me) in the past week, but did I embed/link/blog them? No.

So anyhow, this is a somewhat lazy post with a message: tell me why you embed and/or deride me for my lack of taste in what I’ve embedded and/or copped to consuming.
