Candidate match game

Having trouble picking a candidate to support in the upcoming presidential election? You might want to try the USA Today candidate match game. Kinda old but still applicable.Here’s my results:

I figured Ron Paul for first, but I’d me more than happy to vote for someone who was in Die Hard 2.

Now if it was Bruce Willis was running, Ron might have to settle for second…

The Wages of Sin is $7.00 per hour.

Guess what? Minimum wage for Ohio went up to $7.00 an hour at the beginning of the year.

Guess what else? I didn’t get a raise, so that puts me back down to minimum wage. Again.

Fuck.

THE NERD? GEEK? OR DORK? TEST

Alright, I don’t usually do these kind of tests, but I needed a break from cleaning and saw this on Adrianna’s blog:

The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test

Your Score: Computer Savant

43 % Nerd, 52% Geek, 69% Dork

For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.

A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.

A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in Geek and Dork, earning you the title of: Computer Savant.

People confuse you with a Nerd all of the time. You aren’t some genius, like some people have said, and didn’t/don’t really like school all that much (and you especially hated some of the social aspects, like getting mocked). It’s just that you have some passions and interests that you’re extremely into/good at, and this has placed you in circles with other social outcasts, some of whom are exceptionally bright.

The awesome thing about being where you are is that you get to hang out with an elite group (though you’d probably rather be alone, or with only the closest friends and family) and you can make quite a good career for yourself in your particular specialities. Common to this group are people who are highly into electronics/computers as that is where the money lies, today.

Congratulations!

Alright, that was expected; however, here’s the part that didn’t carry over from the cut and paste box:

Sigh… I guess that wasn’t unexpected either…

Roommate

I’m worried about the kind of person who I might wind up with as a roommate. In my mind there are two extremes, “horrible roommate” and “perfect roommate.”

I think it would be problematic if I got either of these. The horrible roommate is self explanatory.  In my mind this would be a big sweaty jock frat boy who would party all the time and trash the apartment at every opportunity.

But I also wouldn’t want a “perfect roommate.” The perfect roommate in my mind is a beautiful upbeat (but not insanely perky) intelligent and self-confident redhead girl with identical interests, political & social beliefs, and sense of humor, who loves to cook for everyone and keeps everything clean. She would have a long term boyfriend, but is still comfortable hanging out with other guys. We would quickly become good friends after I accidentally see her naked coming out of the shower one day. At first she would be embarrassed, but later we would both laugh it off and go watch a movie together. One night I would come home from classes to find her crying with her phone in-hand. I’d ask her what’s wrong and she would say her boyfriend just broke up with her. I would put my arm around her and try to comfort her, but she would refuse and say she doesn’t know how any man could love her. I would reply by telling her how she’s smart, funny, and beautiful, and she would stop crying a bit. “Really?” she would ask. I would say “Of course; any man would be lucky to be you.” There would be a pause as we just sit there. Then slowly, our eyes would close and we would lean in to kiss.  Gently at first, but soon it would become more and more passionate, until before I realize it, we’re having sex on the kitchen floor.

And that would certainly throw a wrench in the works regarding my engagement to Adrianna.

That’s why I don’t want a horrible or a perfect roommate.

I need to find some happy medium. Like someone who won’t have huge parties, but steals my milk. Or maybe a satanist. I just want someone who will ignore me and let me ignore them. Someone to share a bathroom with, but otherwise never have any contact with.

The not-perfect roommate. Now that’s a perfect roommate.

Well, hello there internet user! It seems you’ve stumbled upon my brand new blog. As you can see… there’s not much here. That’s because it’s NEW!!!

So anyways, I’m Robert and I’ll be your host for this blog. Here, you’ll be able to read my musings on life, love, philosophy, art, and any other pointless drivel I happen to be thinking about.
