Take the Rick Quiz

Those of you who have followed this blog for awhile may have noticed a lapse in my entries over the past few weeks. I mean, I was pretty prolific there for awhile. First, I wrote an entry every single day. Then I backed off to writing one every weekday. Then I dropped back to writing maybe three a week. Now I seem to write an entry about as often as Illinois elects an honest governor.

What’s the deal? Did I just run out of ideas? Did I just get tired of it? Do I need to be more disciplined? Why am I asking you? Do I think that you know me that well? Let’s find out just how well you do know me by taking this little quiz. I’m making it multiple choice, so I doubt anyone will flunk. If you’ve been following this blog for awhile, you might just ace this baby. Here we go!

    i can’t believe the answers aren’t all of the above for all these questions.(especially jen’s ass)

  2. raginrr says:

    got 5…when and where do i get my degree?…will there be a ceremony?…MAD suggested to check you out right around the time you stated you were cuttin’ back…so i have not been here in awhile…


  3. Beth says:

    I got 8 out of 10. I am very very worried about you, but even more worried about me! LOL

  4. John Evans says:

    I got a nine?!??! That’s way too scary. (BTW, I missed # 7 because I put down “D” after waffling with “C”). I’m shocked and surprised that I know Rick that well- probably just share his cynical sense of sarcastic humor! It’s a bass player mind set I think.


  5. I got 7 out of 10. Thanks for the shout-out! And it’s funny, that’s one of the ones I got wrong! I picked, “insane” because it was!

    I’m a new follower and just catching up…..liked the quiz, but too lazy on a Friday evening to go back and check my answers (I agree that all should have been ‘all of the above’ cuz they were funny and just makes it easier). Maybe I too am afraid that I know you too well even though I’ve only known you for a couple months….
    ANYWAY, my FAVORITE part was the reference to the old copier machines (seriously only you would know the ‘official’ name of it) and reminiscing about smelling the paper…..ahhhh those were the days. Sure we still have dry erase markers (and if you are really lucky, the smelly markers) to enjoy, but the ‘memeograph’ is something we will never get to share w/our children…so sad.

  7. Clay Johnson says:

    What worries me is… I actually remember from many years ago, that your first concert was Grand Funk. What I don’t remember is … was it you that suggested the 3rd Armored Division (band) play “We’re an American Band”?
