Do You Need to Make a Trip to the 'Burg?

First Item of business. Blogging seems to take a hit in the winter, myself included am guilty. As I thought about why my blogging has been minimal my thoughts were: I haven't taken one picture in 2008, too much time hanging out and watching b-ball with Whit, work, shoveling snow, too much homework (okay, honestly, no I never had that excuse). The reality is, there are very few things that are more important than blogging. I must give Pearl a shout out for her Pres. Hinckley tribute. And I must say I know we have been minimal on our posts lately, but the lack of comments on Whit's Glenn Beck post was obviously disappointing for her, but for me as well.

Onto my post. Many of you know when I have to teach Sunday school, Priesthood, FHE, etc, etc, I often turn my now famous, "Carlile-opardy." (My version of Jeopardy). And that is indeed what exactly will happen on this post. Please get out a piece of paper and record your answers. Post on the "COMMENTS" you will find below, I will post the correct answers.

Thank You, and good luck.

Ev & Whit said...

Please post your score here in the comments field. Thank you.

Ev & Whit said...

There are a few answers I am not sure are correct. As Ev was doing this, I was watching Project Runway... and the date night thing- well, I don't know which one I like best. Good job though, dear! Ich liebe du!

Lindsay & Josh said...

I'm very honored that I was the first test taker. (Not that I like to procrastinate at work or anything.)
With the bonus question (I put Toronto) I would have 5 right. I didn't think that was too shabby. Now all we need is for Southwest to fly out of Minneapolis :)

'd just like to let you know that I got an '8' and Mere and I will be there next weekend! The 2 I missed were 9 and 10. Not too bad. We need to get some skiing in as well!

Adrienne said...

My score was an 8. Loved the quiz post. Your uniform colors threw me off. Also, what is this new upholstery job for you?


bostonroms said...

LOVED the post. I didn't score myself because it would have been TERRIBLE to report. We'll come visit sometime soon. I think the better question is when are you coming down this'a'way???

Jason Donaldson said...

I was extremely bored at work and found your quiz. I'm happy to say that I dominated with a 7 (I have to disagree with rounding $35M to $40M though). Not too shabby since there are only 2 questions that I could possibly answer without a guess.

Jimmy and Diane Koller said...

Even though I live about 100 steps from you guys, I decided to take the ol' quiz, scoring 8/10.

And yes, I did get the SLC question wrong. I also underestimated Whit's awesome test scoring abilities! And I overestimated Romney's spending. A meesly $40 mil? Romney...

Overall, I'd call myself a champ!

p.s.- if Billary does win, count us in for moving to Toronto with you.
