You're Sitting by the Ocean...Now, Who Are You Again?

Some of these quizzes work, some don't - this one has got me bang on the nail or, at least, bang on the nail of how I would like to think I am...

You Take Yourself Seriously

You see yourself as a thoughtful and introspective person. You are very intelligent.

You think other people see you as friendly, happy, and charming. You tend to get along well with everyone.

You want to see yourself as independent and free wheeling. You'd like to do your own thing more often.

You identify as a compassionate and accepting person. You pride yourself on being forgiving.

I'm a Tinkerer - What Are You?

You are an imaginative and curious person. You are excited to learn about the world.

You are interested in all sorts of topics. You like to understand history and how things work.

You are both a tinkerer and an intellectual. You probably enjoy working with your hands and more passive activities like reading.

You have many interests and hobbies... and you're always looking to take on a new one.

The Flow Chart of the Kitchen

After a lifetime of cooking proper meals for other people (and myself), and now that I am an Open University student, I am aspiring to this....well, the pizza every night bit, anyway...

Oh, and a curtsey to the mighty xkcd, as usual
