--- 1 ---It's unanimous: I'm an introvert. This week I had to take the famous Myers-Briggs personality test. I've taken it many times before, so it was certainly no surprise that my first letter is I rather than E (for extrovert). But this time around, the results were crystal clear. There were 26-questions used to determine whether a person is an I or an E. On my answer sheet, "I" scored a perfect 26-0. I guess you could say, "The ayes have it." I'm not overly impressed by personality and self-help tests. But for the record, my full result was ISTJ.
--- 2 ---On the same day I took that test, I found this great cartoon on the Introverts Are Awesome Facebook page. A human-sized hamster ball? Yes, please!
--- 3 ---The plane crash in San Francisco last weekend reminded me of something I've always wondered. If you're ever in a tragic situation where suddenly you feel like you are seconds away from sudden death, is there a particular payer you should say?

Baseball's All Star Game is next week, but despite being a lifelong baseball fan, I never get excited about the midsummer classic anymore. If the fans get to vote (as they do), then it should be an exhibition game and have no bearing on home field advantage during the World Series. Interleague play also has diluted the fun of seeing NL and AL players opposing each other. And I especially don't like the Home Run Derby that takes place the night before the All Star Game. It is excruciating the way ESPN drags it out into a three hour event. I haven't watched it in several years. Does Chris Berman still do play-by-play for the derby? His silly nickname routine hasn't been funny since the 90s.
