I'm impressed by your guesses, Lis.

I expected you to know all of them Robbie.

How come?

I've never read Charlotte's Web or Lord of the Flies, and probably mis-remember some of the other ones.

Re: Quizzes


It surprises me that you haven't read Charlote's Web and Lord of the Flies.

In any case, you got them all right.

Thanks for letting me know how I scored!

I'm surprised, too, I've never read Charlotte's Web but there's no way in hell I'm going to read Lord of the Flies.

Re: Quizzes


Robbie, Charlotte's Web is one of my favorite books of all time. It's sweet, light reading that you might enjoy when you're looking for something that is not too taxing....

Re: Quizzes


I second Lis, Robbie. You don't want to die without having read Charlotte's Web.

Have I said elsewhere that I've been adjusting my gloomy attitude by rereading the Amelia Peabody Emerson books?

Ha! That should help!

It's time for the Father of Curses to make a pronouncement.

Brain Candy: What NFL team did you grow up watching?

[sign in to see URL]

They guess that I grew up watching the New England Patriots, which is wrong. I grew up watching the Frankston High School Indians, and in college I saw a game or two of the University of Texas at Austin whatevertheywere. I am not a sports fan. You all will no doubt get much more out of this quiz than I did.

Your team is the ... Los Angeles Rams!

Just like the movie stars, you grew up a fan of Hollywood’s team. You like all of the theatrics of a game, especially one filled with plenty of offense. You like the big plays, but you also like the big names. If the star players aren’t scoring points and making tackles, then you’d rather turn the game off.



Well, they got the last six words right: "You'd rather turn the game off." ROFL!
