Sunday makes a good quiz day, don’t you think?

You are 'growing one's own food'.

You are guided by two words: 'Live simply.' You
value quality over quantity in most things, and
you have little use for the materialism and
consumerism of modern culture. You know the
value of hard work and try to be
self-sufficient as much as possible, and what
you do you do well. Unfortunately, no man is
an island, and you cannot do everything
yourself. Your puritanical work ethic makes
makes people think that you are weird, and not
much fun. Your problem is that growing one's
own food has been obsolete for a long time.

What obsolete skill are you?

My status bar took a little jump this week, but then yesterday I had one of those days where stuff happens but nothing seems to get done, like writing. Andrew had football and then a sleepover birthday party at the local indoor water park. He’s been dying to go there (all the kids have). But I got to say, this particular dad is braver than I am, even if the party only involves the birthday boy and three friends. We did roller skating for Andrew’s birthday this year and it was bad enough trying to keep track of eleven nine-year-old boys on wheels for three hours.

Kyra and I had a serious session of doll hair combing last night. This morning, she woke up when I did, so I trundled her to the couch, where she fell back to sleep. Twenty minutes later, she cried out and then said: “Leave me alone, Andrew!” I think someone misses her brother.

And now, I really must put some of that puritanical work ethic to use and write at least 250 words.
