Medusas's Owl

I'd rather play here With all the madmen For I'm quite content they're all as sane As me

Ever felt like you played or wrote your characters a little differently than the people around you? You may have a disorder called DICD, or Dissociative Imaginative Characterization Disorder. The test below has been designed to assist in self-diagnosis.

LOL! Amarin sent us this test, and KW and I flunked it too. XD The amusing thing is that a lot of my favorite authors have similar issues. For example Niel Gaiman complaining that his characters wouldn't stop going on and on in a pointless dialog that wasn't getting him anywhere. ;) Honestly, I'm very grateful to have this particularly disorder. It's made me a more rounded person. There's a lot of music, foods, concepts, movies, you name it that I'd never have tried or would have been unable to enjoy in the past that these muses have blessed me with. I enjoy a lot more with them around and learn a lot more too. Even if they are difficult, stubborn, and a pain in the butt sometimes. *eyes the brat in the icon* Yeah, that's right, I'm lookin at you, Eryk! Yeah, keep it up and I'll stick you in pantaloons again.
