Who are you?

Take the 100 Acre Personality Quiz!

Earlier today, my sister (aka FishMama) wrote a blog post about her musings on an article she read about Randy Pausch. Perhaps you've heard of him. I only have ONE channel on TV and I've managed to see an ABC Primetime Special about him AND read an article about him in some magazine. If you haven't heard of him, he is a professor at Carnegie Mellon University who has terminal pancreatic cancer. About seven months ago, he gave his final lecture that was posted on the internet. It quickly went viral and inspired many people. And soon, it will be available in book form. Anyway, in his lecture, Randy Pausch says that we all must make a choice in life -- are we going to be a fun-loving Tigger or a sad-sack Eeyore. Despite his terminal illness, Pausch chooses to be a Tigger rather than lament like Eeyore about the hand he has been dealt. It is a moving story...I confess that I cried while watching the ABC special and again when I read the article. (And no, I don't think it's the postpardum hormones!)

Just for fun, FishMama posted a link to a personality quiz to see which character from the 100 Acre Wood you most resemble. I am a Kanga. Who are you? (Just click on the link below the Kanga picture to take the quiz.)
