Maybe I Just Don't Test Well…

Aw, gee.  I’ve mentioned time and time again on this blog that I consider myself to be a “word-nerd.”  I love to use superfluous words, and I am a fiend for a compound sentence.  In addition, I love to read and to rend some deep meaning out of the words and passages of classic literature. […]

Literary Symbolism

I’ve been working on this interesting project lately where I had to write researched articles on a ton of very random subjects. One of them happened to be literary symbolism. During my travels around the Internet, I came across this really cool quiz called “The American Novel” on PBS.org.  You get to match the symbolism […]

Stars!

Each phrase is a clue about a particular person. You will find that two (sometimes more) letters have been replaced in the clue by stars. The missing letters will be used to begin each word of the answer. For example, if the clue was “Talksho* H*st,” you would figure out that it is a talkshow […]
