100% baby! WOOT!

Although I confess to not knowing what a glosa is, precisely, I knew enough to know that none of the other three were correct.

I KNEW Ms. Fineman would get 100%! I got a 70%. Hanging my head in shame. I knew I was guessing on a few of them, but actually thought I'd get at least an 80%. Dang.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I got age and gender right and that was pretty much it.

Sherry said...

80% --not too bad. Those were hard.

Pooker said...

80% and except for the limerick one, all guesses.

gautami tripathy said...

100%. How can you expect anything less from me?

I guessed the glosa bit though!

Violette Severin said...

I am angry at myself for only being 30% in form. I thought that I knew more about poetry.

Alas, not a big fan of poetry.

But I just finished my 14th Canadian book: http://purple4mee.blogspot.com/2008/06/book-befriend-and-betray-2008-alex.html

I got a 60% -- which is about what I predicted before I saw those difficult questions! I'm surprised I scored what I did. I studied a lot of poetry when I was in college, but sadly, except for sonnets, very little was discussed about form.

I'm with Barbara, I got gender and age right, and you put bad age brackets. I had to pick 41-50 which threw me off at the start. You must have made most of those up. I kept waiting for the haiku question.
I was a chem major.
