Suppose it is a week before payday, and money is rather tight, you are not totally broke, but things are tight enough that you are warning your family to watch how much milk and cereal they use so you can make it last as long as possible.

Now suppose you are on your way to work in the morning and you make your usual stop at the local c-store where you are more or less considered a regular of sorts. The parking lot happens to be rather full, including a State Highway Patrol Car, so you park a little further over than normal, but still with in a very close distance. After comming out of the store with your usual morning paper and caffiene fix you are walking back to your car, which at this time is all by itself, as the cars that were parked near it are now long gone.

Looking down near your tire you see what at first appears to be just a crumpled piece of paper. A little closer you notice it happens to look like a dollar bill or maybe even a fiver so you pick it up, upon inspection however you discover it is not a 1 or 5 or even 10 but $20. There are no cars nearby, no wallet or anything else that might identify who it belonged to, nobody in the vicinity who might have dropped it, and you are in a hurry.

If there had been any way of identifying the person you would have immediatly turned it over, but as other than the way it is crumpled there is no real way of identifying the customer who may come back looking, or may be long gone out of town (many travelers and truck drivers come to this station/store/mini cafe). You are in a hurry and could really use this money, but also have a conscience and know that it could also belong to somebody who is in a tight finacial situation as you. What do you do?

Warren and I did get to go see The Fantastic Four this weekend at the saturday afternoon showing. If you get a chance I highly recommend seeing this, as comic book movies go I think they did a great job, and stayed fairly true to what I remember of the original (minus the romance angle). Yes it violates several laws of physics and biology, don't most superhero movies, but it is a great feel good, laugh out loud, popcorn movie. Warren and I both laughed a lot. It also makes a great point about friends and family, and has a good message. I loved the way Dr. Doom was played like the love child of Magneto and Lex Luthor. (If you read the back history of Dr.Doom this makes even more sense). I think we may even go see it again, but not until after I see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Tim Burton + Johnny Depp = Good movie!! I've yet to see a movie involving both of these men, I haven't liked.

You scored as Cultural Creative. Cultural Creatives are probably the newest group to enter this realm. You are a modern thinker who tends to shy away from organized religion but still feels as if there is something greater than ourselves. You are very spiritual, even if you are not religious. Life has a meaning outside of the rational.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
