My type(s) - for what it's worth...

MBTI/Jung type – has always been ESTP! This description seems a bit on the “special effects” side of things, though.

ESTP - "Promotor". Action! When present, things begin to happen. Fiercely competitive. Entrepreneur. Often uses shock effect to get attention. Negotiator par excellence. 4.3% of total population.

Enneagram – last year this time, I was a type 7…

Main type


I think I like 7 better.

Bliss: a weekend with nothing on

The family’s going up to the cottage in Sweden this weekend – in fact, I’m being picked up at work and off we go, as work is actualy between home and Sweden.

If things go as they usually do, we’ll be sitting well leant back with a G&T around 18:30. Ahhhh. And nothing but reading, walking trips in the forest, eating, talking … oh, and sleeping to do.

Bliss, indeed


(sans internet – so no communications this side of Monday!)


Saturday's alright for - an easy time

Well, have been doing stuff -

  • Refilling the fridge

  • Training with the dog

  • Replacing the IP-TV boxes with the new ones we had sent

  • The bookkeeping and bill-paying chores

  • Cooking the dinner

  • Re-discovering the Trillian I have on a USB stick with the company laptop (shhhhh!) and MSN’ing a wee bit with the daughter upstairs

But all at a reasonablyt leasurely pace, with ample time for a cafe latte (in house) after lunch, a G&T while doing the wiener schnitzels and now a good half hour in the sofa.

With proper excuses to Elton John for paraphrasing. Weekends rock!

Now playing: Lynne Arriale - Estate



Trying BlogJet


See if that works out …

It did. The image is just one sitting on my w**k PC – shredded cheddar

It seems that this is a quite nice tool. Even, after some tinkering – and not knowing what finally made the difference – made it upload via FTP.

Addition: Checking music detection:

Now playing: Connells - '74-'75

Wine and me - or me and wine?

You Are Chardonnay

Fresh, spirited, and classic - you have many facets to your personality.

You can be sweet and light. Or deep and complex.

You have a little bit of something to offer everyone... no wonder you're so popular.

Approachable and never smug, you are easy to get to know (and love!).

Deep down you are: Dependable and modest

Your partying style: Understated and polite

Your company is enjoyed best with: Cold or wild meat

As usual, I saw one of these quizzes at azahar's - wasn't too keen on that one, so I looked down the list of options. No - I didn't quite test which kind of lipstick to wear or whether I'm a fake girl ;)
But as I do like a glass of wine, this one seemed interesting. I'm not too unpleased - though for whites I do prefer a glass of Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio.
(For reds, if anyone should want to know - hmmm, many options. But a good Primitivo is always a nice one. Given food or occasions with a little more uumph, Barolo, Amarone - or for something not Italian, a good Bourgogne. And then I haven't even started on the rest of the world. >>hic<<)
