A fun diversion
Blogthings is a site that creates fun things to put on your blog. This is the sort of thing that I often skip over, but when I noticed Doc Searls used their What does your birthdate mean? quiz and thought the analysis was right on, I decided to try it.

Your Birthdate: May 23
With a birthday on the 23rd of the month (5 energy) you are inclined to work well with people and enjoy them. You are talented and versatile, very good at presenting ideas. You may have a tendency to get itchy feet at times and need change and travel.
You tend to be very progressive, imaginative and adaptable. Your mind is quick, clever and analytical. A restlessness in your nature may make you a bit impatient and easily bored with routine. You may have a tendency to shirk responsibility. Very sociable, you make friends easily and you are an excellent traveling companion.
(Although some days I'm not sure how 'quick' that mind is, or feel that 'sociable' and the 'shirk responsibily' is a bit strong....more like 'procrastinate'...) posted by liz at 10:15 AM
