Quiz Time! Shakespeare Headlines!

In my search for quizzes, I came across a whole website full of them. Not exactly what I was looking for, but fun, nonetheless. Have you tried FunTrivia.com* yet?

Today’s quiz is Shakespeare Headlines from www.funtrivia.com. They’re not really headlines; more like fun summaries of the plays.

I got 7/10 correct, with a score of 665/1,000. As you may have guessed, I didn’t do so well.

Go take the quiz and come back and tell me how you did. I’m sure you’ll do better than me, so come back and brag!

Quiz Time! What Literary Character Are You?

I haven’t done one of these in a while, and if I can remember, I’ll try to find a new quiz every week to post. Today, I came across “What Literary Character Are You?” on abebooks.com.

My results:

You are Galadriel from the trilogy the Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. Recently played by Cate Blanchett in the epic movie trilogy directed by Peter Jackson, you are a strong woman and you know what you want. You are a visionary with grand ideas.

Go take the quiz and come back and tell me your results!

Water, Water Everywhere Part 3

I’ve told you about our trip to Daytona, and the fun I had when we got back. But wait! There’s more! It’s like a bad dream that won’t end. If I believed in a water god, I would wonder what I had done to make him mad.

We took my ex’s truck to Florida, and I left my car at his house. When we came back, it was in the midst of a torrential rain storm. It was pouring rain, and the lightning and thunder were horrendous. Bennett was scared to get out of the truck, but he was so scared of the storm that he was hiding in the back floorboard, and we had to drag him out. Continue reading
