Silly Stuff

I'm busy writing to a deadline, plus doing some research on breast implants for this blog. In the meantime, I'm going to offer you something that seems to sell well in the mainstream media:

1. Possibly some completely unfounded gossip on our current president. I can't guarantee that any of this is true, but if you like to worry or need another reason for it, this should keep you going for a few sleepless nights.

2. An IQ test. Guaranteed to make you feel bad, even if you score the maximum as internet tests are not real. Of course, IQ has very little to do with intelligence in the first place, but we all love tests that will tell us everything we never knew about ourselves through all these decades of inhabiting our bodies, yet all this can be told to us in one simple test by perfect strangers! Whom to marry! What color to wear! Whether we should have our penises or breasts artificially engorged! What fun!

The real reason I'm including this is of course that I got a good report. Sort of. Here it is:

Your Intellectual Type is Visionary Philosopher. This means you are highly intelligent and have a powerful mix of skills and insight that can be applied in a variety of different ways. Like Plato, your exceptional math and verbal skills make you very adept at explaining things to others — and at anticipating and predicting patterns. And that's just some of what we know about you from your IQ results.

I do resent the comparison to Plato, though. But of course this writeup justifies my having a blog from which to preach to the world.
Am I getting too obnoxious? It's hard to know sometimes when one is a goddess.
