Literary and Movie Character Tests

Apparently the authors of these tests think I'm a puerile if somewhat adventurous good guy:

Your result for The Literary Character Test...

Tom Sawyer

Good, Human, Side Thinker

You are basically good. Overcoming selfish desires or cruel ways, you focus on doing the right thing, when possible, and acting in a way to benefit everyone. You recognize your human weaknesses and imperfections, and are able to respond to them in well balanced ways. You are clever and analytical. You think about various angles of something, and you calculate the best way to achieve goals.

Tom Sawyer is the youth in all of us; he biggest desire is to laugh and play all day, and pure adventure is his biggest vice. His cleverness can get him into plenty of mischief and trouble, but even those who must punish him, also must admit that it is also what endears him so much to so many people. He is admired and enjoyed by all, and even when his sense of fun dictates he must take advantage of them, he has a sense of honor and nobility that cannot be denied, even if he tries at times.

Our Weekend in Washington, DC & northern VA

Friday Shoshana was on a Federal panel on emergency evacuation & I had lunch w/writer/blogger @vboykis. We spent Shabbat & Sunday morning with Ann Hollender Schwartz and her family including her sister Judy Hollender Tipton (childhood friends from New Rochelle; the visit felt like reconnecting w/cousins with whom we felt completely comfortable or resuming a conversation after a hiatus of several decades). Hiked Billy Goat Trail along the Potomac River and C&O Canal & saw new air/space museum at Dulles w/Ann & her husband Allan.
