How Well Do You Know Laurie?

How well do you know me? Let's find out.
Edited 10/15/06 to add:
Results so far...

1 Mary 100
2 Susan in St. Paul 100
3 Bonnie 80
4 Katie 80
5 Lorna 70
6 Her Mom, Ruby 70
7 D. B. Cooper 60
8 Jack 40
9 Neil 20
Mary is me. I had to take the test to be sure I had created it correctly and it wouldn't let me take it as me. Therefore, Susan, is the high scorer.
I am beyond impressed with Susan's score considering we've only known each other for about three years and only through e-mails. She scored better than my mom, my sister and my niece!
Lorna, you shouldn't feel bad since you got the same score as my mom.
Bonnie and mom, you guys should feel bad since you got the same score as niece/granddaughter, Katie, who has only known me 16 years as opposed to your 46 years/51 years. :)
Neil, bless your heart, you're just a bad guesser and D. B. a 60 is amazing considering I've only known you for about two weeks!
Jack, a 40?! Granted, the vast majority of our outings involve alcohol and conversing over loud music or between sets, but a 40?! I'll have to create a new quiz with some more recent Laurie history to give you a chance to up your Laurie Knowledge average.


D. B. Cooper said...


Not bad for a newbie here.

Thank god for guessing. :)

neil said...

I was so crap at that, I cheated for one answer and guessed the other - can we still be friends?

Laurie said...

D. B. - That's amazing! I took this quiz at Astrid's blog (granted her questions were a little more random) and got a 20 and I've been reading her blog for about 2 years. Do you happen to know the lotto numbers for tonight?

Neil - You still did better than I did on Astrid's quiz. :) We'll both have to look to D. B. for our psychic questions.

Susan in St. Paul said...

I am shocked at my results. I just tried to channel Laurie for the ones I didn't know.

How did you cheat Neil?

Lorna said...

Laurie, I got 70%---of course the one about ice cream was the easiest. And I want to know why you called Brownie, Molly?

neil said...

It was the star sign question, Laurie recently revealed she shared the same birthday as Al Stewart.

Jen T. (that's me) said...

I just tried to take it and it wouldn't start the quiz! I will try again later.

Susan in St. Paul said...

Thanks Neil! That question was a piece of cake for me since I know Al's birthday and Laurie's ;-)

Oh I forgot to mention that I got 100% but I guessed at the last question, I had absolutely no clue, I just picked my favorite and it was Laurie's too!

Laurie's Mom said...

How embarrassing is that I got a 70. Got the favorite food wrong because I know you like all of them. Could not remember your favorite Beatle. I still Love You even though I don't know you.

Laurie said...

Susan - Absolutely incredible! You and I must definitely had some sort of psychic connection.

Lorna - I think a 70 is great. My family mostly missed the ice cream question because they never see me eat it because I have absolutely no willpower where Pecan Pralines and Cream is concerned.

Neil - Ah, you're paying attention.

Jen - I will give you an extension without point deduction, but just this once.

Susan - One day, we'll have to have a fabulous dinner of broiled shrimp together!

Mom - I love you, too, but a 70?! Hahahahahahaha!!!!

Sophmom said...

Well, I'd feel terrible about getting a 40, but for Jack. ;)

Zina said...

Please delete my last post...I didn't think about putting answers in there. OOOOPS! I got the important stuff right. Almost went with the wrong dog...but my memory burped and it came back to me.

Laurie said...

Sophmom - Perhaps you and Jack can both do better on a Laurie recent history quiz. I'll work on that.

Zina - I deleted the other comment. I didn't even think about it having the answers until you left the second comment.

Regarding your deleted comment, without Maria's "help", you would have gotten the same score at my mom. :)

Laurie said...

Everyone - More Quiz Results:

Carly 60
Zina (and Maria) 60
Sophmom 40
Cindy 40

Susan in St. Paul said...

Shrimp dinner, yeah!!!!!!!. Jack can watch us from a suitable distance, lol!!!

To be fair I do have another source on you besides this blog, a phone call and emails. I find it strange that said source scored so low. Perhaps if he took the next quiz drunk he'd do much better, unless he took it drunk iniatially, then sober might work.

Though frankly, unless he tells me, or he does that weird laugh, I can never tell if he is drunk or sober.

Jen T. (that's me) said...

I got a 50. Guess I should have kept up with my reading assignments.

Laurie said...

Susan - I'll have to ask "the source" about his alcohol content when he took the test. That is a great laugh, isn't it? :)

Jen - Maybe you need to take it drunk, too.

More results:
Jen - 50
My cousin Susan - 70

Good job, Susan!!

Laurie said...

Everyone - More results:

Roger - 70
Melissa - 60
Christi - 50
JustMe - 40 (I'm not sure who this is.)
