The Tarot Test

Commander Oneida offered up this little Tarot test. Now, I am not one to believe in these things, but here are my results. Based on my career, I would agree. I have caused much destruction and death in my history, but I am not all that happy about it.

You scored as XIII: Death. Death is probably the most well known Tarot card - and also the most misunderstood. Most Tarot novices would consider Death to be a bad card, especially given its connection with the number thirteen. In fact this card rarely indicates literal death.Without "death" there can be no change, only eventual stagnation. The "death" of the child allows for the "birth" of the adult. This change is not always easy. The appearance of Death in a Tarot reading can indicate pain and short term loss, however it also represents hope for a new future.

XIII: Death


VIII - Strength


II - The High Priestess


IV - The Emperor


XI: Justice


XIX: The Sun


XVI: The Tower


VI: The Lovers


X - Wheel of Fortune


0 - The Fool


III - The Empress


I - Magician


XV: The Devil

This is just WRONG!

The Good News:

I passed my written exams for promotion, and rumor has it that I did well on my oral interviews. So, my name will appear on the promotions list that will be submitted to the promotions subcommittee of the Republic Senate, and, if I make the cut, will be moved upward through the process. Someone I met during this rigamaroll mentioned I should get a publicist to get my name visible. It would increase my chances for being chosen.


Anyway, I came across this item while futzing around the office the other day.

Later people.

Pa dump dump. (rim shot)

Sorry about not posting for a while. I have been doing interviews over the holonet for my admiralty test requirements. So far, rumor has it, I am doing well.

What is especially frustrating for me is the fact that I had turned down the advancement many years ago, not wanting to become a part of a burgeoning bureaucracy, and preferring to stay in the cockpit, I turned down the promotion. Not that I am sorry for all the excitement I have had, but now there is a significant difference in getting promoted.

So, as I said before, I have been polishing my brass and memorizing regulations for the last couple of weeks.

On top of that, my civilian aide has been dorking around with his own blogs, including some story about a government on a fictional planet. Sounds like a waste of time, if you ask me, but I have been so busy myself, I can't keep track of him right now.

By the way, when we finally caught up with the rest of the fleet, and our own timeline. There was a big bump, a flash of light and zippity doo dah, there we were.

What is interesting is that while we were back in time we had three births (yes it is a big ship), two deaths, and over two hundred birthdays. Now, the births and deaths were recorded on the same 'day' that we returned to normal time. As for the birthdays, some people think that they should be counted twice, while other don't want to count either one.

It's always something.

Monday's desire

I read Jon's blog this morning and took the donut test.
Because it is a Monday morning...

You Are a Boston Creme Donut

You have a tough exterior. No one wants to mess with you.
But on the inside, you're a total pushover and completely soft.
You're a traditionalist, and you don't change easily.
You're likely to eat the same doughnut every morning, and pout if it's sold out.


Would you like a cup of Joe with that?

Be back Soon.

Hey kids.

Sorry for not posting in a while. I have been studying for my Admiral's exam. I know that I have avoided a promotion for some time (cuz me luvz to fly), but now that I am looking retirement down the throat I want to get my pay grade up a notch so that I will have a little more of a cushion for my 'high-livin' life style.

The exam is this weekend, and I have been diligently reading and taking notes to be sure I pass this puppy. So, I will be back soon with more memoirs.

Later, space cadets!
