The Queen of Procrastination

I took this test and was a little upset at the results. I went back and redid it three times, trying to figure out if I could change it. Why? I didn't like the way they describe me as 'my brain fell out!' How insulting!! I tried to be more judgemental in the test, but to tell the truth, the only things I get judgemental about were the questions about sex and marriage - I think people should be more or less the same age and monogamy is the only way for me (at least for me). My brain has not fallen out. I simply refuse to judge people. Is that bad???

You Are 80% Open Minded

You are so open minded that your brain may have fallen out!

Well, not really. But you may be confused on where you stand.

You don't have a judgemental bone in your body, and you're very accepting.

You enjoy the best of every life philosophy, even if you sometimes contradict yourself.

Anyhow, I started "Wicked" and LOVED it - am halfway done already and am looking forward to tonight when I can sit down and read!
I also read "Dark Wind" by Clive Cussler (I bought it for my hubby but had to read it first) It is full of the usual Dirk Pitt adventure and Clive Cussler writing. But I'm not complaining - he writes a cracking story. I can get over the opaline green eyes (I started counting how many times he wrote that and lost track by chapter eleven, lol.) But it's true - people do forget this sort of thing. And the girl friends are predictably both independent and completely reliant on the MAN. It's men's fiction at its best - my husband Loves Clive Cussler. I love Dirk Pitt! LOL.
As soon as I finish Wicked, I'm starting "Keep me Forever" by Rosemary Laurey. Vampires and witches and shapeshifters...Oh my!
Well, I should maybe get back to work on my own book that is just about done - I set myself a May deadline and it's May, so I have three weeks to
Yes, the Queen of procrastination is Moi.

Where do you find the time to read so much?! You lucky thing ;o)

I know what you mean about quizes being rude - they often are to me, but yours did say 'not really' and I'm pleased with the quiz as it's one of those few which is nice to me (though I only got 56% open minded)

And I've just been reading about you insulting little old ladies, lol. I wouldn't go feeling too bad, as I can't imagine anyone smiling brightly and saying 'Sure!' at that moment ;o)

LOL - She's lucky I Didn't have my purse with me or she would have gotten it wrapped around her neck, lol.
And it is true that my quiz did say 'not really' - LOL - I think I may be a tad oversensitive. (or still thinking about your blog post - Boy, I could USE that money!!!)

LOVE your test results - 80% - to me means you're a great friend if you're that open-minded, a strong enough individual to accept but also to walk away if you feel like it.

And your "I still have 3 weeks left in May" cracked me up - lol.

Have a great weekend.

I recommend you try James Rollins. He has the same breakneck pacing and intelligent plotting as Clive Cussler, but his female characters tend to be more well-rounded. My favorite of his books is "Amazonia," and I am currently reading "Map of Bones," which just came out in paperback. 'Cause I'm cheap.

I'm the Canadian Queen of Procrastination although lately I've been trying to break the habit. (do they have groups for such folks?) I bought two books yesterday, though one is a book on S.E. Asian salad recipes, but my TBR pile is getting higher and higher instead of diminishing. I'm not riding the buses so much right now so I'm not getting much reading done! (Have been doing some writing, however...)

60% open minded

You are a very open minded person, but you're also well grounded.
Tolerant and flexible, you appreciate most lifestyles and viewpoints.

But you also know where you stand firm, and you can draw that line.
You're open to considering every possibility - but in the end, you stand true to yourself.

Sounds about right for me!
