Getting quizzical: answers

February 8, 2011 in Housekeeping, Quizzes

Sometimes, my memory isn’t quite what you’d expect the memory of a person who writes about quizzes to be.

Case in point, yesterday I added the 12 questions that had accompanied the Independent article in the paper to the bottom of my post about the same article.

Today, I completely forgot to post the answers to the questions (until now, that is)!  Sorry if you were waiting on them.

How did you do?

  • 10-12 Quiz Whiz
  • 7-9 Drinking but thinking
  • 4-6 Average head on you
