If you ever get close to a human
And human behaviour
Be ready to get confused
There’s definitely no logic
To human behaviour
But yet so irresistible
There’s no map
To human behaviour
They’re terribly moody
Then all of a sudden turn happy
But, oh, to get involved in the exchange
Of human emotions is ever so satisfying
There’s no map
And a compass
Wouldn’t help at all
Human behaviour

Yup, on a Bjork kick lately.

Last night I dreamed that Sarah, Matt, Luke, Johnathan, and I and maybe a couple other people (it got hazy) were all somehow stranded in North Dakota, and it was sort of like the Old West. We were working to earn money at some saloon/general store type place so that we could get passage on the trains back east, because there was a contest there for building the best bridge, and we were convinced our design would win. We built a huge, beautiful Lego bridge, although why we did this when we wanted to get it to the east by train, I don’t know. I swept floors ALL the time to earn money while the others ran around and did other jobs. Luke had a job scouting out the land and exploring through some swamp, I think. Indians might have been involved. At the saloon/store there was some sort of game thing about guessing how many gold coins were in this huge crate in the store, and if you guessed right you got all the gold coins. Sarah concocted some sort of brilliant mathematical way of guessing to the exact number how many gold coins there were, so we won all of them! We were quite excited, but alas, we had been stuck there so long that winter had come, and there was too much snow to travel by train. Johnathan disappeared for a while and we were worried, but he returned with a plane he had made out of Legos! We hooked it up to the Lego bridge, climbed inside the Lego plane, and took off, only it was a plane that didn’t fly through the air. Instead it burrowed through the snow. This was fantastic, except we hit a wall of ice and all had to climb out into the tunnel our plane had created to hack our way through. The air was getting thin because the bridge was blocking up the tunnel behind us, and we were briefly concerned that we would die in the snow tunnel. However, Matt found a place off to the right of the tunnel where the ice was only snow, so we all started digging through it. We broke through the last slab of snow into a huge convention center where they were going to hold the bridge contest, only that wasn’t until the next day, so until then they were using it to hold a dog show. Four infinitesimally small chihuahuas were staring at us in a shocked fasion as we clambered out of our snow tunnel with our Lego plane and bridge poking out of the snow behind us. And then I woke up! I love my dreams.

I did Sarah’s Brain Usage thingy and got the following:
Your Brain Usage Profile:

Auditory : 18%
Visual : 81%
Left : 50%
Right : 50%

“Stephanie, you exhibit balanced hemispheric dominance and a strong visual preference. It is the intensity of your sensory preference which may more determine your learning style.

“The balance of left- and right-hemisphere usage is very helpful to a highly visual learner. You absorb your environment, selecting out details and simultaneously embedding them in a context, an overall perspective which adds nuances of meaning. Given the prodigious rate that you input information, you naturally utilize the services of both hemispheres more or less equally.

“You are active and searching, which produces energy. Because you can process multiple inputs comfortably, you do not experience the indecision of a person with mixed sensory preference. You are able to focus on more than one aspect of a situation and push for resolution.

“You can tolerate ambiguity, which is good, since you will experience a lot of it due to your input style. While a part of you will always seek completion, the other part will accept the process as it is. You may occasionally get impatient with yourself. You will always be able to work through problems in a logical sequence or given order, but you will have other options available to you as well.

“You may find that you have insufficient time to reflect on your experiences and thus lose a sense of meaning, not appreciating your “inner being” as much as you might otherwise.

“Many people would envy your combination of characteristics. Constantly seeking stimulation, you are artistic without needing to be “odd,” an active learner and yet reasonably logical and disciplined.”

Huh. Well okay.

By the way! I now have a few of the videos from the camping weekend up on Myspace. They’re under videos, unsurprisingly. I’ll try to add to them as I have time. Well, I’m off to do absolutely nothing important!
