Sooo... how badly did I do? There were some I definitely knew (like your name for one) and some where I had an idea, but overall had to guess and then there were several I just plain didn't know and picked at random. I wonder where I'll fall statistically speaking! ;-)

*hugs you*

*hugs you back*

I just filled it out, so you can see the correct answers if you are so inclined...

Well, I got 7 completely right. And then there were others where I had it partially right... for instance I knew Romanticism was a time period you liked, but wasn't sure about the other one so I took a 50/50 stab and guessed wrong. Ah well... :-)

I love these sorts of things. It really helps you to get to know your flist that much better because sometimes we don't pick up on the little things and it's cool to be reminded.

*hugs you*

I think that is pretty good actually, I made this one a bit harder than previous ones...

I also wanted to say, go you for getting my stances on capital punishment and gun control all right!

I remember discussing those issues with you before and I remember that you and I had very similar viewpoints on them. :-)

YAY!

*hugs you*

Awww you didn't do badly, though everyone has missed my favorite colors and the what I wanted to be when I grew up (and now) questions!

Only 5 right. More than I thought I'd get. I simply had no idea on most of them.

That's okay, I made this one kind of tough on purpose. I wanted to see what people think of me as opposed to what I think I know about myself.

I think I probably got most of those wrong. It's weird how you think you know someone from the things they write, but if you aren't good at reading between the lines, you don't actually know them.

I didn't add them up, but you didn't do too badly... I think you are the only person who got the what do I want to be now and what did I want to be when I was in elementary school question right... and also the interest area in English, you are one of only two people to get that question correct.

Not bad really, you got five correct plus 3/4 and 1/2 on the two check box questions. Most people did about the same. I made this one a little tough!

*hugs you*
