I got eight–count ’em–EIGHT credit card offers today in the mail. Do they seriously think their best bet at getting another customer is to send out offers to a destitute grad student? Oh wait, actually I guess I’m the perfect prey because I have little money, so I would find the idea of “0% APR” so fascinating that I’d forget that eventually I have to PAY THE CREDIT CARD COMPANY BACK. Riiiight. Good work, multi-million dollar loan sharks. You sure got me!
New episode of Gilmore Girls tomorrow! All I can say is, it better be good because I’m getting close to mutiny!
EDIT: Sent to me by http://www.xanga.com/fargs. I’m a 38, just like Oprah. That has to be good, right?
Below is Dr Phil’s test.

Now add up the total number of points.
OVER 60 POINTS: Others see you as someone they should “handle with
care.” You’re seen as vain, self-centered, and extremely dominant. Others
may admire you, wishing they could be more like you, but don’t always trust
you, hesitating to become too deeply involved with you.
51 TO 60 POINTS: Others see you as an exciting, highly volatile,
rather impulsive personality; a natural leader, who’s quick to make
decisions, though not always the right ones. They see you as bold
and adventuresome, someone who will try anything once; someone who
take chances and enjoys an adventure. They enjoy being in your
company because of the excitement you radiate.
41 TO 50 POINTS: Others see you as fresh, lively, charming,
amusing, practical, and always interesting; someone who’s
constantly in the center of attention, but sufficiently well-balanced not to
let it go to their head. They also see you as kind, considerate, and
understanding, someone who’ll always cheer them up and help them out.
31 TO 40 POINTS: Others see you as sensible, cautious, careful &
practical. They see you as clever, gifted, or talented, but modest.
Not a person who makes friends too quickly or easily, but someone who’s
extremely loyal to friends you do make and who expect the same
loyalty in return. Those who really get to know you realize it takes a lot
to shake your trust in your friends, but equally that it takes you a long
time to get over it if that trust is ever broken.
21 TO 30 POINTS: Your friends see you as painstaking and fussy.
They see you as very cautious, extremely careful, a slow and steady
plodder. It would really surprise them if you ever did something impulsively
or on the spur of the moment, expecting you to examine everything
carefully from every angle and then, usually decide against it. They think this
reaction is caused partly by your careful nature.
UNDER 21 POINTS: People think you are shy, nervous, and indecisive,
someone who needs looking after, who always wants someone else to
make the decisions & who doesn’t want to get involved with anyone or
anything! They see you as a worrier who always sees problems that
don’t exist. Some people think you’re boring. Only those who know you
well know that you aren’t.
What did you score? Is it accurate? Do you think mine’s accurate? Do you think it’s all just hogwash?
