Since Leslie authored this quiz, why isn't it posted in her topic?

I was waiting to correct typos and also put up pictures, which my daughter said I needed.

(The blow is really shredded coconut; the dog kept trying to lick it up during the photo shoot)

I think we should all make up quizzes to amuse each other.

But but but--you mentioned it in another topic!

Im afraid to make up quizzes. It seems as if it would be a lot more fun than writing.

Everything is more fun than writing.

Today, the child and I go in to record our mother/daughter radio commentaries.

We also took a picture of mother/daughter socks, which I'll post in a bit at

Well, even though most of the choices for each question were unappealing, it ended up pegging me as a writer anyway. Just because of the last question, though. Any selection other than the Great American Novel would leave me a visual artist.

Here are the answers I would have liked to have chosen:

When I stare into an abstract expressionist painting I feel ...

... like I can do better than that, and start doodling on my napkin.

By mistake, your waiter hands you a plate with a huge slice of Reine de Saba (Queen of Sheba cake) instead of the cottage cheese platter you had ordered. You ...

... thank the waiter profusely.

Which Creative Artist would you most want to be?

... Ludwig Van Beethoven

Which magazine are you more likely to read when nobody else is watching?

... People (You can't believe Drew Barrymore settled for that loser. It won't last.)

You're asked to headline at Carnegie Hall. The first set goes fine, but before the next set, the conductor passes a note saying your embouchure is a little sloppy and suggests lip liposuction. You feel ...

... like asking him for a recommendation for the best lip liposuctioneer in New York.

Do people call you...

OK: I can go with this one: ... there was a party?

Have you thought more than twice in the last year about...

... installing a thinkman(TM) cranial implant? *

Sleeping is...

... a guilty pleasure.

What suggestion would a hypnotist most likely make when s/he puts you under?

... Stop thinking about it so much, and just do it already.

Would you rather...

... Produce a work that changes the very paradigms by which your art is produced, but which is never recognized by The Establishment.

----

* Props to Jerry Oltion for this brilliant brand-name.

I admit, I like a lot of bluejack's answers, particularly:

Which magazine are you more likely to read when nobody else is watching?

... People (You can't believe Drew Barrymore settled for that loser. It won't last.)


I also like The Weekly World News in much the same way.

Oooohh, good ones, Bluejack. Soon as I meet one more deadline I'll go back and revise the quiz. But which artist reads People? I know none of us read USA today.

I'm not sure what the full range of sicko artists are, so I'm not quite sure how to link it. I would presume it is the poseur artists such as myself: do you have a sicko artist category "Poseur Artiste" ... "You want all the fame, and none of the work. Although you tell people it's broken, you secretly untape the canvas fish you have on the screen to watch Buffy. You might as well go back to eating ding dongs. You'll never amount to anything, anyway."

Of course, for that, you'll need a new answer for the party question. Maybe: "... to tell you what you did at the party."

And we're still waiting for mother-daughter socks.

Oops. I'm making lots of mistakes lately.

Keeping the test true to the journal article (Cognitive Occupational Haxards and psychopathology of the Artist) was one of my goals. The article groups "Mental Health Disorders by Type of Artist" and I tried to key the answers to go along with the available research.

Ah well. At least there are socks.
