par up to Maya Angelou

Please don't hit me on the head with a stick. But until yesterday, I absolutely didn't know who Maya Angelou was, except that she was mentioned in La Vie Boheme from Rent.

To hand-crafted beers made in local breweries
To yoga, to yogurt, to rice and beans and cheese
To leather, to dildos, To curry Vindaloo
To Huevos Rancheros and Maya Angelou

So at least she was referenced in the same verse with my most favorite thing in the world. And NO, it's not dildo. I'm talking about yoga. Gosh. People. *rollingeyes*

So, a couple of days ago, Maya Angelou was picked up by kottke.org showing on what she had learned in life, highlighting this passage:

I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he or she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

People start to rate them regarding these three things, and I think..

1. A rainy day. On the days I have uncancelable plans to go out, 5/10. I will grumble all the way to the venue. Seriously. On the days I have no plans, 8/10.

2. Lost luggage. Never experienced it. But since I value my clothes *ahem* so much, since each and one of them meant a lot to me and I need a fight to get them all and they are all hard-to-finds [I'm exaggerating, of course], 4/10.

3. Tangled Christmas tree lights. Conceited factor aside, 10/10. Oh, don't ask me. Ask Mr. [In my opinion] 2/10. :)

How would you rate yourself?
