picture personality test

This was one of those cool web tests....

Your result for The Perception Personality Image Test...

HBPS - The Optimist

Humanity, Background, Big Picture, and Shape

You perceive the world with particular attention to humanity. You focus on the hidden treasures of life (the background) and how that fits into the larger picture. You are also particularly drawn towards the shapes around you. Because of the value you place on humanity, you tend to seek out other people and get energized by being around others. You like to ponder ideas and imagine the many possibilities of your life without worrying about the details or specifics. You are in tune with all that is around you and understand your life as part of a larger whole. You prefer a structured environment within which to live and you like things to be predictable.

take me out to the ballgame....

If you have a small class A through AAA ballpark in your city, go support it! Being labor day weekend, I knew that tonight was the last game for our local independent league team....I figured I'd just go check it out. $10 for a good seat(9 rows behind home plate), $10 in beer, and $5 for a big sausage dog, and FREE parking! So I saved about 30-40 bucks in parking, gas, and ticket was about the same.
I just chilled out with a beer for the first few innings, and watched the family of about 8 enjoying the game(although once a foul ball rolled off the roof, the kids kept looking up and back).....just watched the every 1/2 inning promotions(sumo wrestling, tshirt cannons, even a split the pot...)
So for a 2.5 hour game, it was mildly entertaining....although once the other team scored 7 runs in the 2nd, I lost most interest in the game....
I drove about 45 minutes there, but it was worth it for the entertainment value.......anyone else have any big plans for tomorrow?
