Sink me!

Noblesse Oblige.

You have a staggering amount of self-confidence, and all the flair that goes with it: you make everything look so easy. You are probably interested in law and politics, and in social issues. Some may see you as a bit condescending, but you're still very much a people person.

Attention Local Crewe

Yes, I know it's still a week before Thanksgiving, but that week tends to slip by fairly quickly, and before you know it, Christmas and Yule and such things will be upon us.

I'm posting this now to invite:
-any of you who are NOT going home/away for Christmas this year, to join our celebration. My parents and my aunt will be visiting from Mexico and Connecticut, respectively, and we generally do a foofy dinner on Christmas Eve and Brunch on Christmas Day. Any and all of you are invited to come join both.

I'm also wondering if anyone's interested in:

-seeing The Nutcracker as performed by BalletSanJose/Silicon Valley

-a group excursion to the Dickens Fair

-seeing A Christmas Carol at ACT in San Francisco

-seeing Stars on Ice here in town on January 11th.

I'm further wondering if it might not be a nice idea for all of us to get together and adopt a family for Christmas. Thoughts?

What Irrational Number Are You?
You are π

Of all the irrational numbers, you are the most famous. You have many friends and fans. Like many people, non-Euclidean geometry makes you feel uncomfortable. You are involved in so many things that it seems like it would take two of you to make ends meet.

You are particularly close to the rational number 22/7. However, you and e have been called “remarkable.”

Your lucky number is approximately 3.14159265

My thoughts on this:
I hate the word 'suave', and I think 'careful and cautious' would be more apt, for me anyway, if it was translated as 'guarded,' which I am. And then the “loves to be led” and “loves to make friends” sections: the first, I don't love, but will do when the situation requires it, the second, I do love, I just suck at it. And self-evaluations are my weakest point.
