Sorry to those of you who looked for this last week. I had the questions ready, but Vegas stuff completely ate up my entire weekend, Friday especially. I released the quiz on Monday and some people found it, but it wasn't publicized.

Thanks to this week's question writers: ivan, Current Resident, RocketRod, Sinto, timharrod, and phlegmmo

I got a worse score on the easy quiz

I'm pretty sure that qualifies me for some kind of at home care so I don't hurt myself.

Your drop between hard and easy wasn't as bad as mine...

I was going to say that I thought I took last week's quiz.

And I'm barely hanging on this week, but at least made the top 10 by playing early

Get well, then.

It seems like there are enough of us helping out that one or two can fall off on any given week.

The bar keeps getting raised each week, too. There were some good questions that I was surprised not to see make it.

All the questions made it to either this quiz or the easy quiz. But not all of the questions on the hard quiz show up, only 11 of them.

Only the second time I've made the list and the highest ever. Definitely took advantage of the unposted quiz.

I think I'll be proud of the fact that I've so busy at work that I barely had time to be at the computer for work-related stuff.

No, no. I meant surprised to see some not make it to the hard quiz.

I wasn't paying as close attention to what I wrote as I was getting ready to head out of the office for the weekend.

Ahhh. I actually didn't have as many hard questions as I wanted, but we only had two left over when I finished the hard quiz, and both were a bit too easy. I got a lot of extra easy questions later, but that was only a couple hours ago, and I didn't have time to go back and re-slot some that by rights should have been in the hard section.

Dear Abby,

I usually do about the same on the hard and easy.
This time much better on the easy.

Am I becoming shallow?
