My mother will be happy...

So, having done that last silly quiz, I naturally have wated the last hour on other sillly quizzes on the same website, with no intention of blogging any of them. But then I did "What Higher Degree Should You Do?" and this is what came up. Hmm... And I was hoping it would say either the TESOL masters I'm finishing this semester, or the translation masters I have some idea that I might like to do sometime in the future...

You Should Get a MD (Doctor of Medicine)

You're both compassionate and brilliant - a rare combination.
You were born to be a doctor.

Blog Personality

Your Blogging Type is Logical and Principled

You like to voice your well thought out opinions on your blog.
And if someone doesn't read what you write, you really don't care!
Serious and blunt, sometimes people take your blog the wrong way.
But you're a true and loyal friend to those who truly get you.
What's Your Blogging Personality?

How on earth they decided all that on the strength of 4 questions, I have no idea!

I hate Pachabel

I'm been considering exploring putting embedded videos on my blog, both for putting fun things like this here, but also to allow me to start video blogging occasionally. So I thought I'd start by putting this in here. It's a great rant, and, as an ex-bassoonist, I sympathise with the cellist. Slightly. As I remember it, the cello lines were usually more interesting than the bassoon lines. The only problem with this clip, is that now I'm hearing pachabel everywhere. Grr.
