the blog test

I guess it's time for the blog test again. Whenever I come across it on a friend's site, I always have to retest this Internet home. Just in case. So, the results are in:
blog readability test

Movie Reviews

I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a compliment or what? Am I intelligent or just hard to understand? ;-) Depends on the post and the mood, I suppose. Maybe I should use smaller words?

When I first got married,my in-laws would constantly ask me why I "said things like that." Why say "cul-de-sac," instead of "dead-end." Well, because they mean two different things, and I do indeed live on a cul-de-sac.

I remember my step-father-in-law reading magazines and stopping at short intervals to ask about the meaning of the words. Cracked me up at the time, but then I realized that they were laughing behind my back, too! ;-) At least there were laughs all the way around.

Recently hubby's sister said that he is starting to talk like my family. He puffed out his chest a little and said, "Yep, I've come a long way from y'all, haven't I?"

Well, this is coming from an elementary level gal. But I had the same sort of experience with my in-laws in the beginning because I like to structure my sentences in such a way that I indirectly get to my point by using too many descriptives and alternate words. teehee

Once my M-in-law was listening to me and she just shook her head like a bug flew in her ear, and said "What?" I then realized my folly.

I knew you were a clever girl by reading all of your savage post college level entries. ;) Keep using that educated brain of yours Wendy!

You are indeed a virtuoso of vocabulary, a visionary with verbs, and a wonder with words!

Okay...question. Is the blog thing just a roll of the dice? I just tried it and it just seems, well, a little odd. :0)
