We are the Champions

I took a personality assessment two and a half years ago because Penelope Trunk told me to. The results were interesting but I'm skeptical about this kind of thing. Well, I just took it again and my personality type is exactly the same: ENFP (Keirsey Temperament: Idealist, symbolic name: Champion).

I'm a dead ringer for the descriptions of this personality type. Just ask my wife if this sound like me:
Because ENFPs live in the world of exciting possibilities, the details of everyday life are seen as trivial drudgery. They place no importance on detailed, maintenance-type tasks, and will frequently remain oblivious to these types of concerns. This is a challenging area of life for most ENFPs, and can be frustrating for ENFP's family members.
You can take the assessment free if you want to compare results.

B-Day Arcade

I met my brother at Zap Arcade for our joint birthday celebration. They have changed some things since my last visit with Natalie. To her disappointment, they no longer had the game where you shoot deers, but they replaced it with one where you shoot bears.

Most importantly, they now have a working TMNT machine! Which means that I finally fulfilled my lifelong goal of beating Shredder at the Technodrome... an accomplishment made even sweeter by the awareness of how many quarters it would have cost to complete back when this was pay-per-play.

You've lost... you just don't know it

Paisley had a doctor appointment this week to check up on her after the tympanostomy that I totally didn't blog about (the surgery was in the same place where Natalie got her fillings, and the experience was pretty similar, except that familiarity made it slightly less traumatic)(for us).

Jenna and the kids came to visit me at the office afterward. I sat Natalie down by my dad's wooden chess set to play with the pieces. When I looked down, she had completely set up the board for the side of the board that she could reach (only the knights and bishops were on each others' squares).

I didn't know she could do this. I only told her about the pieces' starting positions once and we have never practiced setting up the board. But we have played several games at home, often at her insistence, and clearly she was paying attention. I have never been more proud of her than I was at that moment.

Feelin' dumb

I just missed another chiropractor appointment!! :(
