Quizzes and Cats

It may come as a bit of a surprise to you guys, but I have a bit of an ego. My favorite way to feed that ego, is to be right about things. If you want to play a "friendly" game of chess, I am NOT your guy. So, when I found "Do You Deserve Your High School Diploma" on Anna Banana's blog, clicking on the link and taking the quiz was instinct.

To be honest, I was a little worried about what the outcome might be. I've heard the stories that it's actually harder to get a GED than it is to get a HS Diploma (or maybe that's just something they tell GED students to make them feel better), and that most adults could not pass a GED exam.

I scored an 86%, and despite the fact that the site seems to think that's a good score, it's just B to B+.

I am curious to see how you guys do. Visit the link above, and post your score in the comments. Try to play fair and not look anything up and/or use a book (Evil Spock).

You paid attention during 86% of high school!

85-100% You must be an autodidact, because American high schools don't get scores that high! Good show, old chap!

Do you deserve your high school diploma?

I have been blogging now for about 4 months (my mission statement). During my short time here, I've seen a lot. Some friends have been made and some friends have been lost (where the hell is Madison anyway?).

It's gotten very trendy to post pictures of your pets. Some people have conversation with their pets - Exhibit A. Some people even use their pets as another identity when posting - Exhibit B (Yeah, it sounds like Dissociative Identity Disorder to me too!).

In an effort to be just as trendy as everyone else, here are a few pics of my pets.

Allow me to introduce you to Bailey (the little one) and Morgan (the big one getting ready to lay the smack down on me for waking them up). Bailey is a girl and Morgan is a boy. Bailey enjoys getting stuck in places she cannot get out of (between walls), knocking cups off the counter, eating plants, and just in general, causing mischief. Morgan enjoys being fat, finding new places to lounge each day, having his belly rubbed and getting punked by Bailey. Both cats are great for cuddling (if you are into that sort of thing), running from the kids, and NOT killing bugs!

Stay tuned for my next road trip, where I will give you guys the details of the trip through the eyes of Bailey, as narrated by Morgan. It should be riveting!

Baba Ganoush, OUT.

What is it with all these bloggers and cats? It's a devious plot. (Did I use "it's" right?)

I did 80% on the HS test, I bow my head in shame.

Baba Ganoush said...

jlee - I like both names, but we could never use them for children names because they are our cats.....and they were named after alcohol.

nick - Your usage of "it's" was right on. I agree. Could it be that the pets are actually posting with cardboard cut outs of their human counterparts strategically inserted?

Good job on the quiz. I did not remember going over some of that stuff.....or maybe, I just, well, wasn't paying attention.

I got a 97%! Wow, and I thought I slept through most of high school!

angry ballerina said...

Yea....Uh.....Screw that test.

In order to protect your ego, I shant tell you my score. I will tell you that I cracked up while doing the meme you tagged me for because I have the exact book you used sitting on my shelf. I decided not to copy you as I feared you would think that I hadn't really done it.

Baba Ganoush said...

Ramzi - Take this victory! You will have none in Madden!

AB - Don't hate the playa, hate the game. Yeah, I know, that makes no sense. What did you get?

AML - My wife got a 97%, so the ego is already shot on this one.

Funny about the book. It is one of the few books in our house that is actually mine!

angry ballerina said...

I'm not gonna tell you. In the words of Evil Spock, I'm gonna lose street cred.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, I may not beat you at Madden...I checked out your gamertag...you play a LOT OF FREAKING videogames. Wow.

How cute.. ;-)

At least they are a couple and they have names that go for a girl and a boy... ;-)

Quite happy to see that you got on the split personality banwagon!!!

I still think that ES needs meds!

BSB said...

High school, I'm still there...

It's much more interesting to know that I'm a 63 % bitch! Now that's much more useful information!

Let's see what kind of men I attract.. oh that's easy... begins with an "a" ends with an "e" can you guess?

Baba Ganoush said...

AB - ES has about as much street cred as Vanilla Ice! Remember that!!!

Ramzi - Yes. I have identified the problem. The next step is doing something about it!

BSB - ES most definately needs some meds.

I had to get away from that site quick. I could have been taking quizzes all day!
