Writer's Block: Taking the good with the bad

What are your best and worst personality traits? Do you think your friends would agree?
My best personality traits are my willingness to help (most of the time) and my ability to see both sides of an issue. My worst traits are my forgetfulness and the fact that I am easily distracted.

Most of my friends don't think I have any bad personality traits, even right after I forgot something or got distracted, so I'd say they would agree about my best personality traits, but not about the worst.

I have to type upside-down in the latter position, too, which means I type WAY slower. But at least it looks cool to scroll up and down like that :)

Several links I've been meaning to post for awhile:

Farmville for Dummies? Really?

A candy heart with an adult message? Really²?

A toilet video game system? Really³?

Shooting teenagers for being too mouthy? Really⁴?

And finally, as usual, my progress with my procrastination New Year's Resolution:
