Escapism

I should be editing. Or grading research papers (I'm almost finished with those! Whoo-hoo!).

I could clean the bathroom. Or work on the WIP.

I'm not.

I'm looking up recipes for the spring luncheon I'm throwing with a friend next month. I'm perusing the menu at the Spot of Tea, just in case I do manage a getaway over the summer. (I'm really hoping we can make that happen -- I so want to see the Pompeii exhibit.) I'm over at Blogthings, taking quiz after quiz after quiz. (It's as addictive as Bebo, I'm finding).

Oh, wait! I can go play webboggle!

What do you do when you're really looking for a little escape?

Your Quirk Factor: 43%

You're a pretty quirky person, but you're just normal enough to hide it.
Congratulations - you've fooled other people into thinking you're just like them!


You Will Be a Cool Parent

You seem to naturally know a lot about parenting, and you know what kids need.
You can tell when it's time to let kids off the hook, and when it's time to lay down the law.
While your parenting is modern and hip, it's not over the top.
You know that there's nothing cool about a parent who acts like a teenager... or a drill sergeant!

Heh---68%

You're so quirky, it's hard for you to tell the difference between quirky and normal.
No doubt about it, there's little about you that's "normal" or "average."

I'm afraid to take the parent quiz!

Solitaire. I'm obsessive. can't stop until I win. DH has it on his Palm, and last night, when I should have been writing, I was playing solitaire. By the time I realized it, over an hour had gone by. That game is a time sucker.

I watch reality television. If no reality tv is available, I read. But reading brings me back to writing, which is what I'm trying to escape from, so that doesn't last long and I'm off to the next thing. Usually surfing the internet. I'm a pro at avoidance!
