I'm really looking forward to this TV show tonight. Apparently this test has been taken by several countries around the world, and they've split up celebrity test-takers, as well as done cross-sections of the general population to see who the "smartest" sub-population is. It's not supposed to matter how much education you've had. In the UK I think the vegetarian sub-group scored the highest. There's a scorecard so I intend to play along, and of course Ian will have to as well.
I've always loved puzzles, tests, quizzes of all sorts (of course as they didn't relate to school). My last obsession was Sodoku, and I still succumb to the occasional crossword or wordsearch puzzle. Jigsaw puzzles and Lego (especially Star Wars ships these days) are a big hit with me. But in particular I really like Q & A. If ever I run across a Cosmo mag I always do the love test. Cracks me up.
I don't know what it is. Perhaps it's now that I'm a mom and I find it necessary to justify that I do indeed have a brain. After staying at home for a while I find I need some sense of mental confirmation, that perhaps this IQ test will provide to me. Or it may prove that indeed my brain has turned to mush.
So tune into CBC tonight. I know I will be. I also plan to watch "America's Funniest Home Videos" just before to take my brain through those difficult cerebral gymnastics warmups, just in case.
