My first ever IQ test...

I administered my first ever IQ test to a client today - which might not sound all that impressive, but administering the damn thing is harder than doing it! :S

I've been practicing on partner dude, who, it turns out has the extortionately high IQ of...155 :O! It was really something to watch, I've never seen anyone do it so fast - especially the maths ones - he had the answer out before I'd even hit the timer button - what a clever clogs.

To celebrate, and on account of my client being late and my finishing work late and being both hungry and lazy in equally large measures, we decided to get take-away for dinner. I spotted a tiny Indian takeaway in the middle of an Asian area last week so we went there, in the hope that we would get an authentic curry (greasy slop British curry houses don't cut it for me). Anyway, authentic it was - the staff behind the counter didn't speak English - one of the other customers had to interpret for us!

However, we did get a really yummy and very spicy curry, and a peshwari naan with citrus fruit stuff in the middle....Mmmmmmmmmmmmm Definately going back there.

The curry sounds great!

The question is, what's more important, having a high IQ or the wonderful abilities of a good cook? (I'm not suggesting any mutual exclusion).Does partner dude cook or, is that wondrous experience left to you?

It was fabulous - not quite sure what it is (I'm not sure it was what we thought we were ordering - but who cares, it was yum!)

Partner dude can cook, but needs a little encouragement to try new things...

Actually, atm, he cooks most nights as I'm writing up my thesis. What a man, eh?! I'm going to owe him a lot of favours when this PhD is done!

So it's a "when" it's finished rather than an "if"! Congrats!
