    I am so left-brained, it isn't even funny.

    Most new people who don't know me well say, "You grow orchids and take pictures, you must be wonderfully creative". Boy, have I got them fooled!

    But seriously, I've been nurturing my artistic side in my adulthood. My logical side was way "overnourished" in my youth

    Not at all, Katie. I had to ask what it meant the first time I saw it too. I am not sure where it started, but it means: Rolling on the floor laughing my ass off.

    The smilie is made by those letters with a ":" at each end too.

    Cheers,

    None if you're looking directly at it.

    How crazy is this, but I know what that is, too. That's actually the natural blind spots in our vision and our crazy brains don't recognize the patterns and goof it up.

    I have similar issues looking at a black curly phone cord.. I end up with depth perception issues and can't tell where it really is. Anyone else ever notice that?

    I had no problems reading the colors with both eyes. With either the right or left eye I had equal amounts of little stumbles. It was fun.

    Nope! But then you probably don't answer the phone internding to say "Kerry Waller speaking", and instead say "Kerry Wally"! They haven't let me live that down at work yet....
