Personal Test, Or Testie

My subject header relates to the new term "Selfie" - first discovered by me this past weekend. Self portraits have been around for millennia. Not decades or centuries, but millennia. So I'm seriously officially old because it's a stupid contraction of a definition, and I'm pointing out that it's dumb.

That's old, right? Not when your wrinkles or gray hair start, that's a dumb bar because I've known people to gray or wrinkle fairly young. But getting annoyed by stupid new words to describe not a fad, but an actual longstanding tradition, of which self portraits are definitely long standing? That's worse than jazz at 25.

Anyway, the point of this post is a self administered test: When you're watching a show or playing a game, do you smile or laugh without an audience? A quick smile at a successful game of solitaire/minesweeper/tetris etc., or a laugh out loud at something funny on TV? That makes you a happy in self type of person. You don't need a person to smile at, nor are you inhibited in that you can laugh and not need a person to laugh in front of.

Check. See if your alone time brings bright involuntary smiles, and if not, why so serious?
