How Pleb Are You?

Proving once again that nothing fascinates a person than himself, I will take the How Pleb Are You? Quiz and tell you more than you want to know about me:
1. Can you talk about "Mad Men?" Yes.
2. Can you talk about the "The Sopranos?" In great detail.
3. Do you know who replaced Bob Barker on "The Price Is Right?" No clue.
4. Have you watched an Oprah show from beginning to end? Neither beginning nor ending nor middle, except by accident flipping channels..
5. Can you hold forth animatedly about yoga? No.
5. How about pilates? No..
5. How about skiing?  Sadly, No.
6. Mountain biking? I've owned mountain bikes, but never biked up a mountain.
7. Do you know who Jimmie Johnson is? No idea.
8. Does the acronym MMA mean nothing to you? Um, Museum of Modern Art? Mennonite Mutual Aid?  Massachusetts Maritime Academy?

10. Have you ever read a "Left Behind" novel? No, but I keep telling myself I should.

14. What about an exquisite B&B overlooking Boothbay Harbor? Nope.  I stayed at the Susse Chalet 40 miles away.
