this is a waste of time, but hey -- chocolate!

What Your Taste in Chocolate Says About You

You are sweet, mellow, and easily satisfied.

You don't like anything too intense and dramatic.

Deep down, you're a kid at heart... and you're nostalgic for the past.

You are down to earth and lovable.

A true friend, you're very tolerant and understanding.

In fact, your friends' biggest problem is that they don't like each other!

You love being by yourself and thinking. Developing your own theories and ideas is fun.

You feel lost when you're forced to be social. Being with other people can be lonely for you.

this was pretty much a waste of time as my answers went something like: (1) all chocolate, please, but if I have to I guess I'll pick milk chocolate, (2) hazelnut is the only acceptable item on this list since "more chocolate" isn't an option, and (3) the shape that fits in my bel--I don't care! give me chocolate!
so in other words I'm not convinced that the results of this quiz accurately represent my personality. I *do*, however, really want some chocolate, like, now.

If you need a new way to waste time...

... then by gum, here one is:

Torch Run

It's ridiculously stupid and equally ridiculously addictive. You just use the arrow keys to move the Olympic Torch around to grab the little ring icons while avoiding the red dots (protestors). My record thus far is 155, as denoted above... but I'm bound and determined to beat 210 (might have to wait until tomorrow after I have actually slept more than a few hours though), since that was the high score of the Slate editor who mentioned it in an article.

Speaking of which, if you're looking to waste yet more time, you could also read Slate's special issue on procrastination, and enjoy the delicious irony. Most of the articles are pretty decent.

...every YouTube meme EVER--I recognize most of them, but there are some references I don't know--in the new Weezer video for "Pork and Beans":

I caught my reflection in a spoon while I was eating my cereal...

... and I remember thinking, "Wow, you're ridiculously good-looking. Maybe you could do that for a career."

I just got an email from Kaplan. They want me to come into Manhattan in June and get interviewed for promotional materials, and take some portraits for the Kaplan website. Apparently there will be professional makeup people there and everything. How fun is that?

I just hope I'll have time to perfect my Blue Steel. And that by the end, no one is reading my eugoogly.
