Absolutely no surprise here....

You are Sanguine. Warm, outgoing, and friendly,
you are the life of the party. Your carefree
nature can make you unpredictable and restless,
however, and you tend to be disorganized,
easily distracted, and even undependable.
Passionate and hot-tempered, you have a lust
for life in all its forms. Your creativity
makes you a good starter but a poor finisher.
Sanguines should look at careers in sales,
acting, public speaking, and the medical

Which of the Humours are you?

I've been out all day. Literally. I got up at 8 this morning, hurried up and got dressed and went to work out with my trainer. Mary came with me and worked on the cardio machines while I was engaged. We came home, were here long enough to have some sausage and eggs, then went out, deposited checks (I love getting paid!) and went to Borders, where I bought Linux In A Nutshell (I know, I'm a geek). Then, we went to Mass, out to eat, stopped at a used bookstore that just opened right near where we were, and then to Starbucks for more coffee. We got home about an hour and a half ago.

Dinner was a sort of comedy of errors. First of all, our waiter was...let's just say that he wasn't everyone's idea of a waiter. Short and stocky, real New York, t-shirt was stained, but a good guy nonetheless. He told us about the specials, one of which was Chicken Parmagiano. I love Chicken Parmagiano, and ordered it immediately. He comes back ten minutes Chicken Parmagiano. So, I ordered a steak, and I labored over the choices of side items (it came with a choice of potato and green beans). I shouldn't have fries, so I didn't even bother with that. So, I order a baked potato, because I can't stand mashed, especially when they load them up with all the crap that they load mashed potatoes up with.

Needless to say, dinner comes, and there they are--mashed potatoes. I said, "Excuse me..." and before I could get the rest of my question out, he says, "Yeah, we're out of baked potatoes, so they gave you these..." So, Mary had the mashed potatoes, and I had fries. Both no-no's, since we're both supposed to be dieting, but it's our one day of the week where we can have whatever we want.

Speaking of diets: I'm down 15 lbs. Only 185 to go.
