A reader emailed me some advice about my blog.  I'm always open to input so I've been thinking about what he said.  He's not a blogger himself, but a reader who knows what he likes to read.  He says he likes the poker posts but he wants to read more about me.  Ugh.

He also says I swear too fucking much. lol  Maybe my f-bombs are offensive?  He may be right about this one.

Hmm, so what can I tell you about myself?

11--C...I guess, but I'm figuring that B would be real boring or real interesting depending on the circumstances. It's just that if it's real boring, I'd hate to give up a good C for some boring B.

--Signed...57 year old poker playing male that doesn't crop paper.

Josie said...

Big O - That's quite a name you've got there. LOL

Josie said...

Hey Big got 5 of 11 right! Not too shabby!

SirFWALGMan said...

P.S. I am bad at written tests but I do well with Oral. :P.

SirFWALGMan said...

This quiz is too hard. LOL.

1. B
2. I am gonna go with C. I think you mentioned him once or had a pic with his shirt on it. I should look up that old Red Sox post. LOL.
3. D
4. C
5. If it was C then you would have done really well. LOL. I am going to say B since they are a girls best friend?
6. C
7. cooking, talking on the phone, cake decorating, knitting.
8. B
9. C
10. C
11. E - Most of the above. ;). Probably A because it is the most recent I would assume.

Josie said...

Hmmm Waffles - 5 for 11. Surely someone can do better than that!

evpjm said...


Josie said...

EVP!!! That was bad. You DO need to know more about me. :) You got 4 of 11 right...btw I'm giving everyone #11 right.

fmarra17 said...

Josie said...

Frankie baby!!! I'm disappointed in you - but some of these are deceptive. You got 4-11 correct.

So far Big O and Waffles are tied for the lead....surely SOMEONE can get 6 right, no?

Josie said...

Frankie, you did get my bra size correct tho - bonus points for that!

Hurricane Mikey-- said...

2) B
3) B
4) C
5) A
6) C
8) A
9) D
11)B, although, the *last* time you saw one would be a good story, too...

Josie said...

Mikey - you don't know me very well - yet I know every gosh darn thing about you! 4 of 11 correct.

Maybe that reader was right - I should share more about me.

Answers to come when I get home from work.

BamBam said...

D (obv!)


Josie said...

Bam Bam! R U Kidding me?

A frigging Canadian knows me better than all you US guys!!!

7 correct answers - I think we may have a winner, albeit a canadian winner but what the heck.

Can someone beat BamBam? You have until I get home from work.

Josie said...

BamBam - Obviously 36C?

I didn't know you guys knew about bra sizes - that seems to be the only question that most everyone got right.

SirFWALGMan said...

This test is kind of unfair because the later people can probably deduce some of the answers from the earlier peoples quizzes.

Bayne_S said...

1 Architecture
2. Wakefield
3. d
4. Forehead
5. Land in Florida
6. Italian sausage
7. dfjk
8. a
9. D
11. A (my scar is bigger)

Josie said...

Waffles - Bayne only got 5 of 11 and he was the last one to play!

Bayne - you are on par with the great waffles!!! but not as good as the bammer. I want to hear your scar story - is it ON YOUR FACE? Being on my face makes it worse than yours!

Bayne_S said...

Scar on my face is tiny, it is over left highbrow near middle.

I college Jim was annoying the crap out of Bill who wanted to study. Bill got frustrated and threw a ball point pen at Jim who ducked as I walked around the corner. Pen hit me point 1st and stuck. Tip was probably a quarter inch and completely hidden.

Scar on left arm is 5 inches long and as wide as my pinky at widest point.

BamBam said...

FWIW ~ I wrote my answers down WAY before I saw anyone elses comments.

And YES!

OBV the correct bra size!
Easiest question on the test.


Josie said...


Sounds to me like you had surgery on tbat left arm, right?

SirFWALGMan said...

I think I could win the most scars contest. I was a very accident prone kid.

Josie said...

Waffles, I'll give you a few more scars if you don't listen to me. PLEASE
