Your result for Howard Gardner's Eight Types of Intelligence Test...


51% Logical, 49% Spatial, 25% Linguistic, 8% Intrapersonal, 18% Interpersonal, 41% Musical, 14% Bodily-Kinesthetic and 31% Naturalistic!

"This area has to do with logic, abstractions, inductive and deductive reasoning, and numbers. While it is often assumed that those with this intelligence naturally excel in mathematics, chess, computer programming, and other logical or numerical activities, a more accurate definition places emphasis less on traditional mathematical ability and more reasoning capabilities, abstract pattern recognition, scientific thinking and investigation, and the ability to perform complex calculations.

Careers which suit those with this intelligence include scientists, mathematicians, engineers, doctors and economists." (Wikipedia)

I've been trying to write this post since the beginning of the month! Thank you for all your comments. Work is still "terrible"...I'm quoting that because it's not terrible that I have a job, nor is it terrible that everyone has so much confidence in me that I get put on projects that are running behind, but it has been very stressful and will continue to be until October. Then it will just be regular stressful. =) The other big work news is that Michael's office is moving, so he's been working from home while they find another location. (Cart, horse, anyone?) As a result, we can no longer carpool to the office...he used to work 5 minutes from me. =( So, I have been riding MARTA (Atlanta's mass transit). Now, I could drive if I wanted to. But I hate driving in traffic, and I don't love driving the PT Cruiser even in no traffic. The worst part has been the walk from the station to the office in the heat! I really, really want a Segway, but they're much more expensive than I'd thought.

I have so much backlog, it's not even funny. But I'll try to start moving forward and filling in the gaps later. All I've got right now is this picture of a finished was the next-to-last one for our annual kit exchange, which happened in July. It's the Cherished Stitches biscornu from last year's JCS ornament issue.

Work. That's pretty much all I've got.
