Hi there Jennifer, I was just browsing, looking for symptoms of diabetes related information and found your blog. Very Nice! I have a symptoms of diabetes site. It covers everything about diabetes care, complications, treatment and insulin. You'll find it very informative. Please visit, check it out and enjoy!

Jennifer November 14, 2005 6:59 PM  

Well, first of all: you'll be (at least a little) scary when you raise a kid. Remember that one question: "When was the last time you made somebody cry?" They didn't even have a choice for "Why, just this morning. And again two hours later. And then after lunch..."

We're in a phase.

As for the math, I had to guess on two of them. One was

-7 is:

A. Irrational
B. An integer
C. A whole number
D. A prime number

(Looking at it now, I'd say D, but I don't remember which one I put at the time.)

The other was

2, 2, 3, 4, 5
Given the above set of numbers "2" is the

A. Average
B. Mode
C. Median
D. Standard deviation

I was able to rule out one or two of the choices, and I'm pretty sure I went with D.

As for Mr./Ms. diabetes up there, I'll let the comment stay (until I change my mind) because this special spammer took the time to add my name along with the meaningless fluff about my blog being "Very nice!".


Lisa November 14, 2005 9:05 PM  

Well, those were the two most troublesome ones, natch. But I was fairly comfortable with both. I put D. Prime Number for -7. Not that I remember what irrational, integer, whole and all that crap mean, but I know that prime means it can't be divided by anything except for itself and 1. Waaaaaait a minute. You could do 1 x -7 = -7 or -1 x 7 = -7. Okay, I got that one wrong. I guess maybe it's not a whole number. I think irrational is like "i" Remember "i?" I don't either, but I think it has something to do with it. And integer I think means not a fraction or decimal. And the other one, I put B. Mode. I know there's a word for the thing that shows up the most times, and it's either median or mode, and median means the middlemost number, so it has to be mode. I didn't even notice standard deviation (whatever that is, right?) until you typed it out. But still, those were the ones to miss. Hmm.

Yes, and I did think of you and the the question about when's the last time you made someone cry. Because I wondered how I could have rated less scary than you when you're so laid back and nice, and then I remembered about you being a mother. Makes sense.

As for the diabetic spammer, it wouldn't surprise me if it's something that "reads" your name from the website and generates the spam with your name included, still without actually being a person. (hi diabetic spammer, just in case I'm wrong.) But Blogger is a pretty big blogging machine, and the others I've seen have the same "About Me" format: Name, Location.


Jennifer November 15, 2005 9:25 AM  

Okay, I went back and tried a couple of combinations. 2 is the mode and -7 is an integer. I can't believe it's not prime though. Maybe negative numbers aren't candidates for primeitude.

I still kind of think the diabetic spam was put there by a human, but I'll probably wipe it out next time I'm in an intolerant mood anyway.

Jennifer November 15, 2005 5:34 PM

Jennifer November 15, 2005 5:38 PM  

Oh, and that's five out of eleven, so Mom and I are 45% alike.

But now that we added the citizenship one, Lisa and I are down to six out of twelve for 50%.

Dad, we need your stats.

To anyone else who has read all the way down to this comment: please weigh in!

Dad November 16, 2005 6:20 AM  

My stats? Sorry, I'm afraid I didn't do the personality quizzes, just the citizenship one. (But since I scored a perfect 10 on that, who needs more?) Unless pressed, I'll probably wait someday when I retire and have lots of time...

lisa November 16, 2005 8:42 AM  

Yeah Dad, it must be rough having that computer there and never getting a chance to sit down at it.
