Thanks, Audra! I'm an ACTIVIST (Dominant Extrovert Concrete Feeler )
posted by KKT at 6:34 PM
Like just 4% of the population you are an ACTIVIST (DECF)-- motivated and righteous, you feel the need to change this harsh, horrible world we live in. The world would be your oyster, if you weren't 27% likely to be vegetarian. Anyway, you are forceful and outgoing, so you enjoy interacting with other people and are willing to aggressively pursue your goals. If you are male, you are probably thin and lanky, just because that's what activists look like. If you are female, you probably wear thick-rimmed glasses and tight clothes *or* some kind of hippie outfit. Also, sometimes you have trouble with orgasms, since you have trouble losing control.
In more general terms, you are driven much more by emotion than logic. But because of your ideals, you are more interested in real-world results than abstract conclusions.
Advice from us: Make sure you listen to your opposition. Don't hasten to attack different ideologies. This will also help your relationship with your friends.
Happy Weekend to everyone. It is still very strange to me that our week begins on Saturday. Many times I have to correct myself. I think "Friday Night," so I say, "Friday Night," but know darn well I'm talking about Wednesday night. Arrgggghh.

What a lovely weekend. Nice and relaxing. Wednesday Night Jim and I took our friends Mike and Jennifer to a bon voyage dinner (Jennifer is returning to North Carolnia after being here with Mike for three months). She seemed very happy to be returning home. When I heard that Jennifer was moving to Dubai, I was extremley excited thinking she would be my new best friends simply because she was American. I was wrong. We have very little in common, but I have tried my best to extend a friendly hand. Sometimes my 'best' just isn't enough. It was actually cold enough for me to wear my high heel leather boots. I think I was more excited about going out with Jim all dressed up than I was about having dinner with Mike and Jennifer. Actually, that's a very safe assumption.
I hung out with Elsa the neighbor and her baby boy, Scott, at Safa Park on Thursday afternoon while the guys went on a booze run to Ajman. The park was beautiful and I especially enjoyed sitting on the grass having some true girl talk. Elsa is a really neat person and I feel very blessed to have her and Steve as our neighbors while we live here. God is truly looking after us!
Big Eid Celebrations have begun - fireworks over the creek tonight were beautiful! People are still swarming around for DSF. Jumbo Electonics was a mad house tonight!! I thought I'd never find Jim in the six story electronic mega store. Aaaakkk!

I've quit the blog business before, due to a psycho reader, and now I'm thinking of doing it again. I started up again as a way to keep my friends back home up-to-date with what was happening with me, but I am beginning to prefer more personal one-on-one emails to the mass reading scene (not that I actually have "mass" readers, but some people do!). Another reason is that I hate what blogging can turn people into. I feel that some bloggers abuse the blog and forget how to actually talk to people. Instead of having the balls to talk to a person or group face to face, they hide behind their little computer and slam out some hurtful post or comment or they pick up their little cell phone and leave cruel voice mail messages. I could go on. Most things are very small issues in a big, big world. Get over it, move on, and try to conduct yourself as a mature adult - one that remembers that the people you are putting so much effort into hurting with your "carefully crafted, beat around the bush as to not mention any names, but still get your skewed point across posts" were once a friend, a co-worker, a teammate, a lover, or a confidant. Remember those things before you so casually click "PUBLISH" and send what should be most intimate thoughts across the web. Of course, it is your right to have freedom of speech, but I think common courtesy and attention to others' feelings should be the foremost concern.

Take the high road. Besides, the target has most likely moved on and your big issue is a mere speck in their distant past. Most likely, your grumblings will never hit home and only make you look like the fool.
Soooo... is this better? Can you read it? I still cannot get my ftp site. Hmph. V. annoying. First day of substitute teaching was good - French and Math classes. I was a hit! They loved me!! Ahhhh... to be loved by school children.

Had some good emails today. Not sure if I'll respond to one... not sure what to say, or if anything should be said. Don't you hate those kind of email? The kind that is begging for a response, but you just don't want to stick your nose into it. I think I'll leave my nose right where it is.
Like I always say... "Don't feed the animals."

Just made a student loan payment. Guess all the proceeds from the Benz sale will be going to American Education Services. Bleeech. Just home from K9 - homed 3 puppies today- hoorah! Also got a call from the school: I'll be teaching second grade French on Tuesday morning. I paused when they said "French," but the woman assured me I didn't need to speak a word of French as the children will have self study to do and if there are any questions, there is a know-it-all student named Robby Rowan that can answer any questions. Hahaha!!

Jim is still sick. Poor baby. I hate seeing him feeling so badly and being so stubborn about taking medicine or seeing a doctor (typical man). I must admit I have enjoyed fussing over him and trying to make him feel better. He is actually at the doctor's office right now seeking medical attention. Hoorah!! The wife wins!
