Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

Last night she bet me I wouldn't do it

Never bet Neo when the stakes are sexplay

I've been using Readerware and the Dymo label software to label all my books, movies, and music crate by crate. It took a little experimenting, but I wanted to find a visual rating. I didn't want to look up the fonts that supported stars all the time, and Readerware only supports one font anyway.

So I decided on bullets and degree symbols. A 1.5 stars would be a •°, and so on.

One of my Lady Companions saw my "cheat sheet" note for what my ratings stood for and she dared me to put it up. So here are the official NeoWayland rating definitions.

? Why are you wasting your time?
ø If there is nothing else to do and you are REALLY bored
• Doesn't cause measurable brain damage
•• Could be better but nothing special
••• Okay and it has it's moments
•••• Worthy and you should pay attention
••••• Classic

Using this system, The Sorcerer's Apprentice rates a solid •••° (that's Three Point Five). Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief rates a •• (that's Two). Most "bad" movies rate a ø (that's Null), while a film that ACTIVELY DAMAGES it's cause or the state of filmmaking in general rates a question mark.

Of course I did it. You didn't thing I would turn down a bet like that, did you? I look forward to collecting.

The same thing applies to books.

One reason why I chose bullets and degree symbols is that I can store the ratings in Readerware and copy/paste to labels with no problem.
