My poor blog is suffering from acute neglect. I have a backlog of stuff I want to post, but haven’t had both time and energy to get caught up. So, until I do, here’s a fun little distraction for ya:

Typealyzer is a site that lets you enter your blog url and will quickly analyze your blog’s content and determine your Meyers Briggs personality type. It’s been awhile since I took the test, but the Typealyzer wasn’t too far off. If you try this on your site, leave me a comment and let me know your results. Here’s what Typealyzer thought of me:

ESFP – The Performers

The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead – they are always in risk of exhausting themselves.

The enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation – qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions.

I haven’t had much time to post lately, so I never got around to saying anything about the election (yay, Obama!!!!). I know that Obama is facing an uphill battle with the current state of the economy and expectations running very high. How high, do you ask? Well…here’s a comment that someone left on our bathroom cleaning checklist at work:

I’m sure Obama’s transition team is already working on it.

Sunday was my first baby shower. I have to tell you I’m still feeling overwhelmed by all the love and generosity expressed by my family and friends. We are blessed to have such wonderful people in our lives, and I’m so glad that they will be a part of our baby’s life, too. It was a really special time for me, and I’m very grateful to everyone who came.

Here’s a sampling of photos – didn’t quite get everyone who came, but you get the idea:
