    My brain hurts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

    Took the Core Assessment test today.

    It was in three parts, Verbal, Math and Programming. I either did pretty good, or I failed horribly. It took me 2 hours, after it was over I wanted a vodka IV drip. You'd think a hospital could spare an empty IV bag and its accouterments.

    Instead I got a double latte and went grocery shopping. Steak and baked sweet potatoes tonight. I'm celebrating that it's over.

    I was disappointed to learn that I could not purchase IV bags of saline solution (or empty for vodka), tubing, and needles over the internet.

    There's a market there.

    It may be a drug abuse market, but it's a market damnit.

    Man, I'd fail miserably if my core were ever assessed. Pilates ain't nuthin to sneeze at.

    You've earned your comfort food and alcohol IV drip.

    I'm sure you did just fine. Enjoy the steak. Have a vodka with dinner.

    Just figured out I got one of the moron questions wrong.

    "All of my flowers except two are roses. All of my flowers except two are tulips. All of my flowers except two are daisies. How many flowers do I have?"

    Twelve. That's my standard WAG, and I'm sticking to it.

    Here's one that, I am embarrassed to say, I skipped and went back to later. Talk about over thinking...I'm sure everyone nearby was wondering why I was murmuring "gawd, whan an ass....".

    You have two coins that equal 35 cents, one is not a dime. What are the coins.

    Beats the hell out of me. There was a whole section - the Verbal Assessment, full of questions like this.

    Bill and John have offices at opposite ends of the corridor. Bill is in room 76, John is in 1. They both leave their offices and begin walking towards each other. Bill walks by 10 offices in one minute, John walks by 5 offices in one minute. What room number will they meet at?

    Wish I could recall some of the Math Assessment questions. They were kinda fun.
