C'est la vie...
Charleen is currently working way too much, involvement in Wikipedia has been cut down.


Welcome to my homepage!. Please feel free to leave me a message in the talk page. As a Wikipedian I am interested in many areas such as Literature, Wine, Film and Law among others. I am also involved in several Wikipedia Projects. I am especially interested in Wine and am very involved with the Wine Project. You can look for the wines I have on my "cellar" (or rather closet), or some of the wines I have tasted. You can also see some of the ratings I have given to wine on my wine blog. I am also very interested in Literature, especially Spanish Literature, Film (gotta love Netflix) and TV Shows (I could not live without my Tivo). Finally, I love the beach - I am from an island after all.

The Wikipedia Motivation Award
For getting me to create an account and help make Wikipedia a better place for knowledge, I award you the Wikipedia Motivation Award. Thank you for helping me discover and help this wonderful project. Yours truly, Eddie 17:32, 4 June 2007 (UTC)


You scored as Existentialist. Existentialism emphasizes human capability. There is no greater power interfering with life and thus it is up to us to make things happen. Sometimes considered a negative and depressing world view, your optimism towards human accomplishment is immense. Mankind is condemned to be free and must accept the responsibility.





Cultural Creative












Somewhat addicted
You scored 85 on Wikipediholism!
You are approaching the treshold of an addiction (not that I am anyone to point any fingers of course :D). Scores just above this range are commonly defined as fatal - at least fatal for your social life :) But don't let this discourage you; you are doing a great job on Wikipedia; I am sure many editors know your name, and you are responsible for creation and maintaing of many articles or wikiorganizations, I would not be suprised to learn that you have contributed significantly to FAs, DYKs, mediations or other important parts of the community that allow Wikipedia to function. Consider running for an admin if you are not already one; keep in mind that if you put even more time into Wiki it's going to impact something else you used (still use?) to consider part of your normal routine. Not that it may be bad - we waste lots of time on trivial stuff, and Wikipedia is really helping the world. So if you don't mind becoming more addicted - we can certainly use more Wikipedioholics :D
