answers to the lynne friend quiz

I've decided to post the answers since it doesn't look like many more people will be joining in. And away we go...

1. when is my birthday?

from my wishlist...

2. before i cut my hair all off...

from a post from 4.16.02

3. my other half lives...

not only do i mention it in several posts here, but the cheat sheet from my interview with Steven said...

"College Park in ATL - that's where the significant other is living right now."

4. i work for...

if you've been around here long enough, you know where i work, but you could have also peeped my bio...

"Lynne d Johnson is in the FT employ of VIBE/SPIN Ventures LLC."

5. i teach a college course about...

for those who said technology culture, well that's what i once taught, but i also mention it in several posts here and if you checked my bio...

"an adjunct professor in the Audrey Cohen School for Human Services at the Metropolitan College of New York, where she teaches The Sociology of Group Behavior with a focus on ethnic and racial relations from an American and global perspective."

6. my middle name is...

i'm not telling you the answer, because 10 of you got it correct. also many of you who've been around for a long time know that it used to be on my wishlist

7. my favorite music is

i think this was one of the trickiest questions on the quiz, and i know that many of you think you got it right, but if you had read the interview with Steven that i posted as a cheat sheet, you would have been even more confused...

"Funny thing is everyone thinks I'm this big hip-hop head, when I actually listen to all genres of music. What's been classified as electronica and acid jazz is what I really like. Those folks do something different. Those folks push boundaries. And of course, I love my straight-ahead jazz and house/dance music will always be a favorite."

8. i have a poem published in...

i posted the peom here back on 9/23/02 and again, you could have picked it up from the bio...

"her poem "The Flow," was featured in Bum Rush The Page: A Def Poetry Jam, edited by Tony Medina and Louis Reyes Rivera (Three Rivers Press: 2001)."

9. my favorite mixed drink is...

damn, i thought i talked about this drink here, but i can't find anything posted about it when i search the archives. and i thought i'd find it in a post or comment at j's site, or especially wood's. wood happens to be a fan of the same drink as me, but all the men at DIC should know the answer...

hpnotiq & grey goose

10. in my family, i feel closest to...

donald says this was another trick question, although he and seven other people got it right. if you notice i don't really talk about my family that much here, i kind of keep most of that personal, except for rare moments. i never say their names.

but as i thought about what donald said, i figured maybe i should have said the person i feel most connected to in my family is. then perhaps maybe even more than seven folks would have gotten it correct.

but anyway, the one person i talk about with the most consistency and the most enthusiasm, and who i've posted about the most here, (which means that mainly people who have been reading me the longest would know the answer)

is...

of you bloggers, donald scored highest with a 90 (let's not talk about the fact that i've know donald forever, although we didn't really have a personal relationship until the last few years), and ronn ran a close second with an 80. there were two other 90s, but those are folks in my personal life so they better had scored that high. the rest of you who took it scored 60 and below.

and now i'm closing the quiz. everyone who took it will receive the answers, but i, and probably nor you, will ever be able to access the quiz again.
