Something's wrong with me, but it's not Autism

Researchers at Cambridge University's Autism Research Centre developed this questionnaire to measure autistic traits in adults. Higher scores indicate greater autistic tendencies.

I took the test and here are my results:

How high maintenance is she?

I took the quiz. Here are the results:

If there’s a new spa treatment out or haircut to experiment with, you’re the first to book an appointment. You’re the expert others call when they’re hesitant to try something new. A trendsetter among many, much less stylish people. We bow down to you.

Recommended Viewing:
The Smart Woman Survival Guide for lots of great new tips to add to your arsenal.
I think I scored the highest level! I went through the quiz again, picked ALL the ultra-high maintenance responses, and I got the same outcome.

132 Boxes

some of the 130 boxes
I moved with 130 boxes + all the other stuff we carried, but there were 130 cardboard boxes/plastic containers!

I vow that the next time I have to move, I will be doing it with fewer than 130 boxes (unless the furniture is boxed up)

Miranda - sans braids

I almost have my girl back! It took 35 minutes to undo the braids. She liked the fluffy, kinky hair, so I am letting her keep it for a day. Tomorrow evening it's getting a wash and then she'll have smooth, silky hair again!

The Evolution of Boyfriend's Motorbike [updated]

[newest photos at the top]

He put the K2's back on (properly so no more burns). They are soooo loud! But they look much cooler than the Big Straights. And he put on the new springy thingies at the back.

With the new Hard Krome 3" Big Straights installed. I can still hear him down the block, but they are not as obnoxiously loud as the K2's. Scott says the noise is deeper.

With the Hard Krome K2's installed. They burned his leg so he had to take them off. I could hear him coming when he was more than a block from my house.

With the factory pipes.

Fit Flops

I WANT THESE!!! I want black and pink FitFlops, and I want them on my feet right now! They would make me happy, and they would make the boyfriend happy, since he likes it when I wear flat shoes.

I haven't found them in Canada yet, but they can be pre-ordered in the US at Bath and Body Works (they don't ship to Canada) and Bliss (they ship to Canada for $25).

High Above the City... look, it's James!

I don't watch CityTV, but watch this clip of the episode called Walk a Mile: High Above the City with my friend James!

Some guy named Darrin Hagen has a show where he learns new things, like how to be a high rise window washer.
(or if that doesn't work, see the video on the CityTV website HERE)
