It is evil and must be destroyed.....

Have ya'll tried this "quiz"?

I have a love/hate relationship with this thing. I have made it to #65 a few times, but only on those blessed days when I can actually get past #59. You must have to have the quick fingers of the Bionic Woman to beat #59. I am convinced that this game was developed in the bowels of hell. And I have my brother over at White Horse to thank for this.

However, it has taught me something about myself. Something that my family has known for years, and I have denied vehemently, but must now confess. Hello, my name is Wendy, and I am a control freak.

Maybe "freak" is too harsh. I prefer "diligent". :-) I think I may be a little OCD. When it comes to games, etc. I just have to finish it. Especially if they have those virtual medals or trophies when you complete a level. I HAVE to have them. I have a problem.

I remember about 15 years ago I was babysitting. The kids were in bed and the boy had been playing a Geo Safari game. It was 4th grade level ya'll. ALL subjects on this thing. I played that thing for HOURS until I got all of the subjects mastered. I could not stand to miss a question. It was terrible. I really should have been committed. Really.

I am still the same way. Even with kid CD ROM games. Do you realize what I could have accomplished if I put this much effort in my work while in college?! Amazing. I could be a millionaire, famous inventor, something! Am I? No. But, I will NEVER forget that Divinci conceptually invented the helicopter, or that Munch painted The Scream. That's just invaluable information ya'll.

So, I am now off to play the "Evil game", and I will beat it. One day. I. Will. Beat. It.

I've got OCD too, but it comes in fits & spurts so games won't hold me for long. Which is why my more competitive siblings hate to play a game with me because I don't mind losing. I'm just there to have fun.

I hope you get through this particular level of Hell. That's one tough quiz. :P

Thank you, Princes. :-) That's what is so bad. Board games, etc. with other people I am totally okay with losing. I do it just for the fun.

It's the one's where you are challenging yourself, so if I fail it's like I'm failing myself. Does that sound weird?

I guess I don't have that, and it is probably good. I would probably never get anything done. I know that I will work on something until, Oh look a kitty.

I've got a weird mix of OCD and ADD. I think that comes from APing a small child though. During the 3 or 4 minutes I get to myself a day, I am obsessive about getting something unimportant done, like this quiz.

But victory will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine!
