Cristi, you didn't get 150, you got 42!

I had to say that because I did worse than Robert; I got 106. BUT I had to break in the middle to have a discussion of gasoline purchases. Lame excuse. I know.

Let's just say that I got a total of 72 right.

or at least I got right something with that number combination in it.

WHAT!? The TV was on, and Robert was making noise in the kitchen, and I was expecting the bug man any minute and that CLOCK was ticking!!TICKING! TICKING!

I guess I didn't mean this to be a contest. I just wanted everyone to see how many countries there are! Plus, I thought it was fun.

Also, don't let Angie fool you. She was not expecting the bug man at any minute. He was supposed to be here Monday and showed up well after this test was taken.

Just own your 27. Ain't no shame in it.

Well, maybe a little.

Lucy said...

Okay, sorry for turning it into a contest. It was fun. I'm just a competitive person.

Remember Clue?

And did I tell you that I was reduced to Settlers of Katam a few months back? Painful bu...

rdmeeker said...

Ok, ok. I totally meant it to be contest!

I CANNOT believe that you played Settlers! Did you love it? I do. I have played it a million times since coming home and I win (when cristi the great isn't cheating!).

Was crazy daisies on the blink, or what?

Lucy said...

I HATED every minute of Settlers! I'll shoot you an email about the extenuating circumstances, but rest assured, the Daisy lives on!

Hi Robert! It's Ramona, I visited Iraq in '06...
Jen told me about your blog today and I checked it out. Some good stuff.
I got 111 right on the UN nations quiz, I would have gotten probably 15 or so more if I had unlimited time. I'm not that great under time pressure but I just thought of it as a game and it went pretty well. If someone isn't a good speller they could know all the countries and not get many counted though.
