This morning, I decided to follow up on my earlier post and take a picture of myself in my bathrobe. I was working from home, fancy-free, not wearing any pants ... here I am. See how content I was?

(I say content, but I suppose some might say 'smug'.)

Of course, immediately after that my Internet connection started to go all wonky. At first I was getting 70% packet loss, and then, after restarting my router, I couldn't connect at all. I called Cox customer support, did various troubleshooting stuff, and ultimately made an appointment for them to come out and check things out tomorrow between 3-5 pm.

So now I am working in exile. I currently look like this:

I'm looking noticeably less content (or smug for that matter), aren't I?

(This is not a plea for sympathy, because I wouldn't expect anyone who doesn't normally work at home to have much.)

Here is a typo I almost just made in a message to a customer: 'malign list'. Spellcheck does nothing!

Anyway, my current plan is to still go to the Tazza open mike tonight, but I will be bringing my guitar, not my accordion -- I want to practice the accordion songs I was planning to play for another couple of weeks before taking 'em to open mike. (The free drink offer still stands.)

Thanks to me, my coworkers now frequently use the word 'colleagues'.

Work-related guilt has resulted in me switching my flight tomorrow to a much later one, at 9:20 pm. So I guess I won't be seeing any Providence folk until the weekend sometime.

(I'm still not ruling out a Brimfield Flea Market run on Saturday, though, if the weather looks promising.)

If tomorrow's flight gets cancelled it will be very interesting and I am not sure what I will do. (Actually, I guess that's pretty predictable: I will be depressed.)

Rid says, "you know how to PAR-TAY!"
jwgh says, "Is true! Am known globally for my partaying skillset."

Soon, phone meeting #2 of the day. Huzzah.

[livejournal.com profile] urbeatle posted earlier that he took one of those online Myers-Briggs tests, which reminded me that a few years back my employer paid for me to take an 'official' personality test from the Frank Whyte Education Services people and later to take a training class where we learned about the different kinds of personalities and what-not.

I'm deeply suspicious of the whole thing because, first, it's not really clear to me how falsefiable it is (I believe the instructor said at one point that the test was incredibly accurate and at another that your results might vary depending on what was going on the day you took the test, etc.) and also how meaningful it is (the choice of the four dualities seems pretty arbitrary; I bet there are others that could have been chosen that would be as measurable or more so). But, you know, the whole thing was sort of interesting.

Anyway, while I was cleaning my room the other day I happened to find the report they sent me, so let it be recorded that I am an INFP! Now if someone asks me while I'm online I might actually be able to find this information.

They also gave me a little bar graph showing that my test results showed that my preferences had the following level of 'clarity':

Introversion: Moderate [opposed to Extraversion]
iNtuition: Clear [opposed to Sensing]
Feeling: Clear [opposed to Thinking]
Perceiving Moderate [opposed to Judging]

These are along a scale that goes: [no label], Slight, Moderate, Clear, and Very Clear. [Insert Scientology joke here if desired.]

My recollection is that the majority of people are I, N, F, and P as opposed to their opposites, making me a super-freak! Phear me!
