Nobody's Home Today

Thanks to the wonders of technology, if all goes as plans (despite the fact I am writing this Friday night), I will not miss a NaBloPoMo Saturday post. Not only that, but this will be posting at exactly the same time I will be meeting up with fellow bloggers from far and wide in NYC. Since tomorrow is more "Irrational Thoughts" day (have access to that again, so I can post it. Yea!), and Monday is Music Monday, I guess you won't get my take on the day until Tuesday. But how can it help being anything but great fun? I mean, getting together with great friends? Meeting new friends? NYC? And we're all bookish sorts who like the idea of eating Hungarian pastries and spending time at The Strand? It just doesn't get much better than that.

And on that note, I will leave you with my Dewey Decimal classification section (thanks to Stef), pointing out that this is not the first time I've taken a test whose results proved I'm a nerd. But fossil mollusks (I know I'm getting old, but hey...)? However, look at that: science AND math! Maybe the overall description of what I'm supposed to be like will explain to you why I'm dying to know what kind of equation was put together using very basic facts like my name and birth date to come up with the number 53925.

Emily's Dewey Decimal Section:

564 Fossil mollusks & molluscoids

Emily = 53925 = 539+25 = 564

500 Science

Math, astronomy, prehistoric life, plants and animals.

What it says about you:
You are fascinated by the world around you, and see it as a puzzle worth exploring. You try to understand how things work and how you can make them better. You might be a nerd.

oh, have just a lovely, lovely time today. I am so sad not to be there. But perhaps I will take a picture of my two thousand dollar mouth and share, I'm not sure the trade is worth it!

LOL! You got a good one. And I love the "you might be a nerd." Hope you are having fun in NYC!

Have a great time on your trip! I've always wanted to go to the Strand, so I'm very much looking forward to a report!!

Can't wait to try the Dewey Decimal quiz too. :)

It was great to see you as always. Thanks again for organizing the meet-up.

Not surprisingly my results for this quiz were exactly the same as yours. We're proud nerds!

Court, we were so sad you weren't there, too. Then again, it's just an excuse to have another one!

Stef, I was having lots of fun. And yes, does it get much better than being a mollusk?

Ms. Knits, oooo, if you've never been, you'll have to meet me there some day.

ZM (or should I say FFM, for Fellow Fossil Mollusk), you're welcome. It was great!
