Strange...I didn't miss any of them.  But, there were words that I misspell ALL THE TIME.  I think that having the correct spelling next to the incorrect one is what helped me out here.  Weird.

You did not answer all questions. Please answer the questions marked in red.



Spelling section is fine... it's those other brain cells that aren't working.

I'm a human dictionary do da do da

*continues to boast*

You know what I like? I like the Word things in the Reader Digest magazine...

I have a whole stack of them...and I like to see how 'good' I am at knowing what weird words mean - yes, I am a self-confessed nerd.

Anyone want to play? Heh...if so, go hang out at the doctor's surgery - good supplies there..

THANKS CHRIS.

It's 1.30am and thanks to YOU I've just done a whole bunch of inane quizzes. Yes, now I know that the capital of whateveritwas is actually Brazillus and not Rio de Janeiro (shurrup about sp) and I know that were is sometimes pretentious and I know that I'm not superstitious!

It's all your fault!

BAD C, BAD!

I missed THREE... including Playwright. THAT is so screwed up it's not funnt, because I have 2 stageplays under my belt, and I can't spell what I am (and, yes, I CAN spell idiot)

So I look for the light through the pouring rain...
