Love Paige (aka On The Pull)

I apologise in advance to the person who ambitiously keeps googling "Paige+Harrison+Sex".
(I keep telling him/her that they need to provide a photograph of himself/her partner to have any chance of success!) This post is designed to pull together various strands and comments from the last few days.

As most of you will have gathered by now, I'm not a finisher. Never have been ; Never will be. I have so many good intentions that never get anywhere. Paul Omani has quite rightly pointed out, I'm one for the big challenges. Perhaps it's my French heritage? However, once I can see a solution, I lose all interest. Executing the solution is less important, for me, than conceiving it.

I threw out a sugggestion about setting up a "blog review" meme thingy. Several bloggers said that they'd be up for it. Alas, I've been unable to settle on a single blog to review. I keep reading more and more blogs (which isn't a bad thing). Another idea not executed!

Paul + I previously discussed writing a new constitution and we got as far as a preamble. In the absence of any other encouragement, this thing petered out. Mindful of my habit of rapidly losing interest, I realise I need a new strategy. I need to breakdown the grand challenge to a series of important steps and I need to engage someone with the persistence of my 'Sex-with-Paige' googling friend. So I think we should build up to this consititutional challenge by designing the flag (suggestion here), emblem (suggestions welcomed) and composing a national anthem (one that Brian Kennedy and Northside thugs can sing).

We don't want to get ahead of ourselves!

I'm not going to let your idea of reviewing blogs go by the board. I've found one that I want to review. I'm going to look back on your suggested guidelines, and do it.

Does it have to be an Irish blog?

Ever come across MyersBriggs? You're an extreme P, I guess. (You'll know what I mean, if you know MyersBriggs.)

Wow, my last employer told me that I was so not a 'P' but in fact very much a 'J'. I tend to agree with you - but I want to get more information before I commit!

Re: Review - Doesn't have to be Irish but I reckon needs to be of interest to Irish Bloggers.

This sounds interesting.

Thanks for coming by and the link, Im reciprocating when I can get into the mechanics of my blog, which I haven't been able to do for a few hours now.

On second thoughts, I'd like to suggest that you might find a better descriptor in Belbin team roles. You are clearly not a "completer-finisher" but I definitely see lots of "shaper" and even some "plant" in there.

If you'd like me to bore the pants off you on Myers Briggs, let me know. If someone who works closely with you, calls you a strong J, there must be something in it.

By the way, I'm an extreme P.

On the question of a new constitution: after what I've been involved in on Sluggerotoole's blog, it'll be a long time before it is possible to write an Ir-ish constitution.

I think the Belbin analysis is useful up to a point. I think it's easier to change Belbin roles depending on a group composition.

However, I think that the Myers Briggs analysis is much more interesting. I'm always amused at how I always come out exactly the same and my boss (not always the same person) always refutes such suggestions!
