I should really be packing.

47Yes. Shameful. I know.
However, in my defense, you had to name colors from their list. Things like light blue and tawny didn't count and everybody knows those are real. I even went for aubergine. I mean, come on. Aubergine. That color test is not nearly extensive enough for me. I'm just too smart for it.

Oh, but colors like Zinnwaldite, Harlequin and Smalt... those make the list. Isn't harlequin a black and white diamond shaped pattern? It ain't no color in my book. I can tell you that.

Clearly, I am too smart.

Whoa. I can tell what I'll be doing the rest of the evening. Thanks a lot, Jodie.

Well let's see: 21 five-year-olds (but since I've never had one...), 69% on the robots (Mr. J. helped; I'd never seen half of them), and only 6 seconds longer than you in space. Dangit! That only means you're six seconds closer to heaven. :)
