    You Should Hail a Cab in London
    Interesting! I haven’t been there, but I’ve always wanted to visit London, and the UK in general.

    “You like to think before you talk or act. You want to do the right thing, and you refuse to be rushed.”
    I mentioned before that this is one of the things I value most.

    “Sometimes your strong sense of responsibility leads to frustration. You take too much on.”
    I’m not sure if it’s my ‘strong sense of responsibility’, or my perfectionism. But yeah, I am often frustrated by the work I do. It has to be perfect, duh! πŸ™‚

    “You’re incredibly thoughtful and able to give people what they need most. Generosity simply makes you feel good.”
    True, I often give people something better than they need, mainly because I want to see what I’m capable of.

    “You are both fussy and discriminating. You don’t mind if people call you high maintenance – it’s true. ”
    I am a bit fussy. I hate the feeling that I could have made something better than I did, if I spent more time on it. I am high maintenance, but I maintain myself.

    “You should hail a cab in Barcelona–

    You’re content with what you have in life, and you can’t stand feeling worked up.
    You feel like you live a life of abundance. There is so much in your life to feel thankful for.

    You prefer to sit back and enjoy every situation life has to offer. You put an optimistic spin on everything. You don’t seek out change, but you don’t necessarily avoid it either. If it comes, it comes.”

    Nice! I have yet to travel outside the U.S but I would love to see Barcelona!

    You Should Hail a Cab in London: True, I love London – been there 20 times already and got 3 three friends there as well… However, I’m NOT the least discriminating!!! But the rest of the result is very accurate.

      I wonder if we mean the same thing by “discriminating”… in this case, I meant someone who has good taste in all aspects of her life, which I think you do by the clothes you wear πŸ™‚ Definitely nothing to do with racial or gender discrimination though!!!

        Ah you’re right Kari. I understood it wasn’t meant that way, more interpreted the word as ‘snobby’ or toffee-nosed – however, in Sweden, the word ‘discriminating’ is a very combustible term so I wanted to clarify myself on this one in any case. Sometimes I tend to be a little too overexplicit. ..Oh, and thanks for compliments on taste/clothes. πŸ™‚

          Interesting, and good for me to know. I’m always interested in the different connotations words outside of the US πŸ™‚

      @Kari: You’ve gotta see London – crowdy town with bad air pollution, but nevertheless bustling and charming. The mix of old & new is great. Oh, and all the bridges and parks… Stately good old London. And yes, they still drive on the left side!! πŸ˜€

        It sounds really amazing! My dream would be to wake up to a classic English breakfast with lots of tea, do a little writing on my laptop in the morning, and take in the town for the afternoon. It seems like my kind of place πŸ™‚

          You’ve captured the atmosphere brilliantly Kari. St James’s Park is a far better catch than well-known Hyde Park – more cosy, lots of ducks & five pelicans, being fed every day!!! One of those pelicans is actually said to be American, i.e. an immigrant! Quite cool. πŸ™‚

          Delicious breakfasts when on holiday, i.e. eating later… me for one, can’t imagine having sausages & mushrooms before going to work at 6.30 am!!
