I did this one jes' for Susie*

I was bored and glommin'** here and there to find and check out some of the new blogs that have joined in on the munu universe when I came across this post penned by Mad Mikey of the appropriately named Mad Mikey's Blog wherein his eloquent prose urged me to visit the Political Quiz Show. Although I most valiantly fought my urge to do so, I finally could hold out no longer and made my selections. My answers were tabulated and I scored a 27, such score placin' me somewhere 'tween George Bush, Dubya's daddy, and Jack Kemp. At least I wasn't pinned under Jesse Ventura.

*It seems that ya gotta put forth a lot of effort to turn her head, anymore.

**This word derives from my youth when my great-granny used to chastise me for "glommin' through all the drawers in the house", lookin' for whatever I might find.

Would that be glommin as in the famous song?

Roaming in the Gloaming?

I can remember my great grandmother using the word in a similar manner but never knew where it came from.

I hit old George dead on. Exactly 25. No idea about some of the US-centric questions so I just guessed. Not like that is any different to how the president probably does it anyway :-)

I don't think the two terms have anythin' to do with each other, but, to tell ya the truth, I ain't too sure what gloamin' is, either, although, I always inferred it to be "a hazy sunrise," or kinda like roamin' 'round in the fog as the sun brightened the mornin'.
