"I'm leavin' on a Jett Plane!" or "It's the Eye of the Tiger..."

Tonight is the last night in my bed for 2 weeks. :)

You Were Actually Born Under:
You are solid, methodical, and you do things right the first time.
Even when no one else does, you always believe in yourself.
You tend to see the world in black and white, right or wrong.
A good memory and eye for details means you tend to thrive at near impossible tasks.

You are most compatible with a Snake or Rooster.
You Should Have Been Born Under:

Fierce and courageous - you are the king of every situation.
You pounce and attack, until others give you want you want.
Daring and magnetic, you inspire others to follow your lead.
And while you're wild at heart, you have some hidden soft spots.

You are most compatible with a Horse or Dog.

"The battle for Middle Earth has begun" or "Cue the Xena theme song!"

I am flying out to SF tomorrow evening. Wednesday evening I fly off to New Xenaland. Tonight is the last night in my bed for two weeks. I can't help but feel this trip is going to answer a LOT of questions that have been simmering for quite a while. I feel like I'm rather at a bit of a crossroads. Which way do I go? Which way do I WANT to go and which way can I truly HONESTLY go and not feel like I am selling out?

It's a lot to think about whilst getting ready to wing to Middle Earth.

Information

Unhappiness in relationships, according to Dr. Gary Chapman, is often due to the fact that we speak different love languages. Sometimes we don't understand our partner's requirements, or even our own. We all have a "love tank" that needs to be filled in order for us to express love to others, but there are different means by which our tank can be filled, and there are different ways that we can express love to others.

"Straw polls" or "That explains THAT!"

All over the news today they have been talking about the latest Republican straw poll. Not getting into politics with this post...it just struck me that I had no idea what the phrase "straw poll" actually MEANT. Yay for google and a little bit of research.

Apparently the phrase stems back to rural America when farmers would toss some straw in the air to see the direction the winds were blowing. Such is a "straw poll." It's just a simple little poll to see which way the political winds are blowing. And now you know.

(Incidentally, many pollsters are shocked, SHOCKED that Mitt Romney, the LDS governor in Massachusetts took #2 in the bible belt, no less.)
