Well didn't you just come in 2nd in the a&l tourney? Would think that would be a strong point. Some real smart people competing there.

My weaknesses are in the Sports (although the Leisure part can save me)  and Music categories and to a lesser extent Movies. I enjoy and can do well in the Science and Nature and Language categories. Aspects of H & M I can do well but I am not good on remembering exact dates so that can be a disadvantage. In Arts and Lit I do well on childrens's literature beacuse of my years as a teacher. Some other aspects I don't do so well on despite being an avid reader.

I deleted my original post. 

Sorry if I offended anybody.

I generally am near last place in arts in the decathlon. After a great first day of categories for me (DRAGONS!!) I was ahead of Seve. 

I practiced rally after rally to try to stay close to him.  It was nice to have a week where I could fact to my heart's content.  

He still beat me, though he probably didn't have to study once. He is amazing in Arts & Lit.  I was incredibly proud to have kept it close. 

I was just curious to see what other's strengths/weaknesses are here.

After coming in 2nd in the Arts tourney, complaining about the category was a bit of a **** move. Again, I apologize. 

But it IS a hard category for me, and always will be.  Even Nemesis thinks it is hard.

Hey Bb, I'm sure you didn't really offend anyone.  The original post did make me chuckle, though.  

In Factacular as in everything else, I am maddeningly inconsistent. Friends and family always trying to convince me to go on some quiz show or other...but they dont understand the sort of brain I'm working with!  I'm forever getting questions I should know wrong, and then pulling out some obscure nonsense from the depths of my lazy brain.  Also, I hate learning anything simply for learning it, things like champagne bottles, Dewey decimal, chinese year names...so I never do and always end up guessing randomly!

I have 4 siblings. When my mom is calling one of us, it takes her all 5 names and sometimes even the dog and cat's names to call the right one.

Thanks Bryn. I'm generally offending everyone constantly in real life so try not to do the same here ;)

You know Kev, missing offending you now and then (and vice versa) was a big reason I had to come back around and bother you guys.

I'm just waiting for you to post a thread I actually know something about ;).
