How Dumb Are You?

I was surfing around earlier looking for memes, recipes, etc. to save for the occasions when I have nothing to say.

I found one called "How Dumb are You"? I started taking the quiz. I answered 20 tricky questions, most of which I'd seen before in one venue or another. Then I hit "submit".

I had to work my way through at least five pages of ads inviting me to sign up for this, that, or the other. I kept hitting "skip". On the very last page was a list of at least 40 offers to which I had to answer yes or no. I answered "no" all the way down, hit "submit" again and up popped a little notice telling me I had to answer "yes" to at least one.

I don't know about you but I'm not that dumb. I was dumb enough to invest 15 minutes of my life I'll never get back though.

Ray is still doing quite well, I'm about to cook dinner, and I'm watching Boston beat up on Cleveland. My National League game comes on later. Other than a drizzly rain for much of the day (accompanied by a welcome cooling), life is good.

For those of you who asked, I'm doing well too. Having him safely home makes a difference and we've settled in the "old marrieds" routine once again. There is much to be said for knowing each other so well. And no, I'm not wearing myself out. I have time to play on the computer, watch baseball, and even do a little reading. Ray is working his way through his old Babylon V videos now that we've located them. I'm going to surprise him with the season by season dvd's one of these days.

He walked all the way around the outside of the house yesterday. Twice. He may have picked up a slight infection in his leg. They're not sure but it was slightly red and swollen so they added an antibiotic to the mix as a precaution.

Glad you enjoyed the meme (which was copied with no strings attached). Thanks for all the kind words and welcome to my new friends. You know who you are.

Have a great weekend and take care everyone.

Hi, Ann. Good news about Ray and I'm glad you're taking care of yourself as well. Hopefully there's nothing serious going on with his leg.

I had intended to post something new on my blog tonight but we got word this evening that Lamar's Dad in Texas has passed away. We've been on the phone all evening with family and friends here and in Texas, trying to get everybody informed and make some decisions. Like I told Lamar, there's no such thing as a convenient time for a funeral.

Anyway, hope y'all have a good weekend.

Love and hugs,

Diane

Stupid online quizzes!! I feel your pain.

It sounds as though ray is getting better by leaps and bounds. It's wonderful to hear!

I'm a wee bit leary of anybody that purports to analyze me sight unseen. Besides, I already know how dumb I am. That helps.:)

On my way to say happy birthday to Pea.

Unfortunately, that dumb quiz plays on the impulses of dumb people. I used to get hooked on the same kind; now, as soon as I am asked to sign up for something, I click myself away as fast as possible.

Prayers and all continue for Ray.

I'm glad that both you and Ray are doing well and that you've settled back into your old routine. It's difficult when a spouse is not well. My husband had triple bypass in 2001 and was in and out of the hospital several times in the year prior.

Those quizzes irk me terribly. I've stopped taking them even though they sound interesting. They just want to hook us.

I will pray for both you and Ray. Have a Super Saturday.

Blessings,
Mary

I learned a long time ago, if it ain't easy I hit the little X button...teehee!

Glad to hear you are getting back into routine...I've been doing some reading and catching up on the new fall TV shows myself and actually enjoying them this year!

Have a great day!

Glad that Ray is home with you, granny...a bit of spoiling is no doubt on the agenda! ;)

I hope your team won.
