That was fun! I scored a 17 so I guess I do need to get a life but at least there ain't a restraining order against me.

Most surprising? Rob working in trading and investing. I would have never guessed.

Sapphire said...

I know this before but now it is official.....I am a CNN stalker. I got 18. No restraining orders so maybe I could work for CNN :P (in my dreams LOL)

The Rob question got me too. I learned something new today. Thanks Purple Tie. This was fun!!!!!!!

BookAsylum said...

Great pop quiz! I only got 17 right. Scary that I'm able to remember that much.

Em said...

I scored 18...missed Anderson the "dancer" and one other. But I promise, I will probably never get close enough to any of those people to gain true "stalker" status! Athough, I may need to get a life;)

Phebe said...

Really great post PT. I didn't keep score but I'm sure my blogmates beat me big time.

Sapphire said...

so Anderson is the best dancer at CNN according to Paula Zahn....maybe he should go on Dancing with the Stars :P
