We had a really nasty thunderstorm come through the neighborhood about an hour ago. They've been predicting it for about a week now, and it was pretty wild. Lightning, thunder, wind, rain coming down in sheets, even a little hail. It was so cool. I'm glad I have surge protection on the house.

When we had the waterfall put in about four years ago, several very loud frogs or toads took up residence in our yard. Right now, they're croaking up a storm, and are drowning out the sound of fireworks. It's really something.
I think I'll go take a handful of aspirin.

I love getting up for early morning teleconferences. The price you pay for having half of your coworkers in India. It could be worse, I guess.
Your result for The Best Thing About You Test...
Humility is your strongest virtue. You are humble.
Humility is the defining characteristic of an unpretentious and modest person, someone who does not think that he or she is better or more important than others. And you? When you do the right thing, you're doing it for all the right reasons. All 7 virtues are a part of you, but your humility runs deepest.
It is likely you're a quiet type. But if not, then you just have dark, secret side that loves to give.
Humble famous people: JD Salinger, Isaac Newton, Harry Potter (pre-puberty)
Your raw relative scores follow. 0% is low, and 100% is perfect, nearly impossible. Note that I pitted the virtues against each other, so in some way these are relative scores. It's impossible to score high on all of them, and a low score on one is just relatively low compared to the other virtues.
I'm off to the dentist in a few minutes to get this cap fixed (or replaced).
