rooster mountain


I was interested to see that my weblog software censored the English translation of the American word rooster yesterday. Probably there is a setting that I can adjust somewhere, when I can be bothered, which can clear up such a misunderstanding. In any case, above is a better photo of the mountain, which is called hahnberg because it resembles a rooster.

At midday today, Miguel, Ash, Carles and I had our first German lesson with Danielle. I think it went well and I am regretting not starting German lessons earlier. Hopefully I will make fast progress over the next couple of months. 

This evening seven of us went back to the Gockelburg restaurant near Karlsrue (where we were on 16 Dec 2003). It was raining, so I didn’t take any outdoor pictures. I took a video in the restaurant, and may be able to cull some stills from it though.

I have been trying out a few of the many LOTR personality tests. I quite liked this one:



If I were a character in Zovakware Lord of the Rings Test  with Perseus Web Survey Software

(Warning: the Zovakware & Perseus links seem to produce popups!)

But I also liked the hobbitlore one which is based on the books’ characters rather than the films’. It also uses the Myers-Briggs/Keirsey Personality Tests. The first time I did it I came up with the following:

You are most like
Frodo Baggins, Son of Drogo

With many acquaitenances, Frodo is deeply attached to a few people, like Bilbo, Aragorn, Gandalf, and Sam. His high ethics come out in his treatment of Gollum and Saruman. Frodo has pity on Gollum and believes that change can occur.
You have a strong personal morality. You are committed to relationships and their growth. You tend to be an idealist, believing the best of the world around you. Time alone is important and solitary activities refresh you. You have a tendency to introspection. While providing compassion and being considerate, you may have the tendency of being soft-hearted or even “too emotional” You like keeping your options open. Closure is probably not one of your strong suits.

The Orcs display the evil side of this personality with their lengthy torture methods.

Traits: Empathic, benevolent, looking to the future. On the dark side you could be sadistic.

Torture? Sadism? Yeah! grin  Try it yourself, here.
