I'm Seasonally Affected

Maybe it’s because it’s so grey, cold and dreary, or maybe it’s because all of these yahoo conspiracy theorists are discussing our demise in 2012, or maybe after all of the gifting of Christmas and Bud’s birthday I’m coming down off of some kind of high. Whatever it is though, I’ve been a little bit blech , if you will, and I think the way to solve it is to do a giveaway.

I’m not going to make it a gimme though. Oh no. I am going to give you a quiz. And the person who scores the highest will win something, hand picked and not yet determined by me. I need an excuse to browse all of this delicious clearance anyway!

SO! The quiz…it is about me. And don’t worry, my geniuses, it is multiple choice. I am the final ruler on the grading, and I may give partial credit for wrong answers if you amuse me. Just saying…

Today is what? Thursday? And we have a long weekend coming up? I will keep this open through Monday at 11:59PM Eastern Standard Time. I will deliver the results sometime Tuesday, along with the correct answers and explanations.

You can leave your answers right in the comments, or email me. Whatever works.

I do not know enough for this, and yet I'm answering anyway.

1. b or c.... um, I'll go with b
2. no idea - c
3. hmmm... b?
4. d
5. d
6. e
7. c
8. a
9. I seriously hope a
10. a

Obviously, I have no freaking idea and these are all guesses, except 1, which is a narrowed down guess. And frankly, I think putting both those two choices is a little unfair. :)
