Seems that Chinese Eric called me from his cell phone yesterday afternoon when I wasn’t here. Whoops!
You Persuade with Pathos
When there’s some convincing to do, you like to rely on emotional appeals. You go straight for the heart.
And in order for you to make an emotional appeal, you have to figure out what the other person needs.
You ask the right questions and listen carefully. You can determine each person’s values and beliefs.
You know how to show others how what you want aligns with their emotions. You can personalize your argument for each person you need to convince.
Here’s a hilarious “bad grammar” picture from Kelly, AKA Brtfnk! “Irony is when someone writes YOUR AN IDIOT. Learn grammar. Insult properly.”
A Canucks banner from the Hockey subreddit:
From Wesley: “Nobody beats that many Metal Slimes!”
From Wesley: “Metal Slimes… they smile, but they’re evil little bastards!”
From Wesley: “METAL BABBLES! THEY’RE EVERYWHERE!”
I discovered a MAGICAL direct deposit to my chequing account on the 4th, which is cool because I needed to buy dish detergent and a ream of Staples printer paper since the last time I bought that was in June 2011 after going to Pho Cao Van! No, it couldn’t wait till next week! Of course I took my wheeled bag when I went out at 3:35, too! Got 1.5L of dish detergent x2 (lemon / green apple), on-sale pasta (three boxes for $5!), an on-sale family size pack of Cadbury mini-eggs, and two M&M egg packs for Harmony and Lisa at London Drugs. Then I went to Staples, where the blue multi-use reams of paper were unexpectedly on sale. Of course I bought two for $10, since the regular price on one was $7.19! It was a challenge for me to haul my wheeled bag around after that, but I went straight home anyway, finally getting in the door at 4:30. PHEW! I WON’T HAVE TO BUY PAPER FOR A LONG TIME! Of course, I don’t NEED 1000 sheets of paper (one ream being 500 sheets) all at once – not like I use it for printing things – but it’s always good to have a nice-quality paper for writing stuff on. :D
You Are a Green Pencil
You are very down-to-earth and balanced. Little rattles you, and you are practiced in controlling your reactions.
You are both calm and proactive. You only do what needs to be done, and you make sure to act deliberately.
You have an endless curiosity and fascination with the world. You like to notice every detail around you.
You would make a great teacher, stay-at-home parent, or life coach. You can offer others perspective that they lack.
Went out for some fried chicken at KFC, and then to buy toilet paper at London Drugs. I really needed the last item, even though it wasn’t on sale! Good thing I skipped the rain, as I was out from 2:15 to 4!
You Are a Drone Bee
It may sound like you’re the type that just follows the herd, but you are actually the type most likely to be a free spirit.
You are adventurous and likely to wander. You tend to have a very different personality from those around you.
You are more of a searcher than most people. It hasn’t been easy to figure out your purpose in life, but you’re getting there.
You have never been one for a desk job; you would rather get out there and explore. And you have friends who are just as antsy as you are.
Sonic 104.9 called me for some reason this afternoon – interesting! Dreamed about Claire meeting several famous people, and having to herd an alligator through a sliding glass door. I forgot that I’d had to re-install Jnes 1.1 in November, so I had to spend time putting in a bunch of codes for DRAGON WARRIOR 3 and DRAGON WARRIOR 4. Oh well.
Tonight was the last Canucks game of the 2013-2014 season, against the Flames. It also happened to be the Pat Quinn RING OF NONOR night! The game featured Frankie Corrado’s first NHL goal, plus a Flames player’s first goal. There was also a BS hit on Daniel Sedin which ended in his having to go to the hospital. At least the game and tumultuous season ended in a 5-1 win, though. I’ll have to call Chinese Eric in the next couple of days for our annual debrief, haha!
From the Woodus Dragon’s Den site:
You are… NERA. You are always dressed in your best clothes, but you are still gentle and modest. You enjoy the arts, and work to the best of your ability to please the people around you. (Flora of DRAGON QUEST V)
