May Monster Madness Quiz & Celebrate

CELEBRATE THE SMALL THINGS

This week I'm celebrating:
1)  I spent hours and hours trying different quiz sites to find something that could be embedded in a blog -- but I did and my great bloggy peeps can have some fun!
2)  I'll be going out to dinner with friends to celebrate my b-day next week.  I think I'll eat Mexican food -- an unusual treat here in Egypt.  And I'll go out to dinner with hubby on another night.  I believe birthdays should be celebrated for at least a week.  Why limit yourself to only one day??
3)  For a flight from the US to Egypt 20 years ago, I bought Relic by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child to read on the plane.  I loved it!  I recently came across its sequel, Reliquary, and it's just as good! Plus, they wrote a whole series with the same characters.  I see some good reading in my future.  :)

Did you enjoy the Horror Quiz?  What was your score?  If you put a quiz on your blog - what would it be about?



This post is part of VikLit's blog hop, Celebrate the Small Things. To be part of this blog hop, all you have to do is follow the link and put your name on the Mr.Linky list, and then be sure to post every Friday about something you're grateful  for that week.  It can be about writing or family or school or general life.  This is the funnest and easiest blog hop ever!

I started strong in the quiz then dive-bombed. hehehe. Awesome quiz.

And I totally agree birthdays should extend to a whole week's worth of celebration. Have an awesome birthday, Lexa!!

Little Gothic Horrors said...

I got 60% right, which is probably for the best as apparently: "horror will make you strong & put hair on your chest." I can do without the hairy chest! Haha.

We always extend birthday celebrations for at least a week in my home! ;)

T.F. Walsh said...

Love quizzes... will be taking it... And I love Mexican food... Yum.

TBM said...

Happy Birthday. I celebrated mine last week. Mexican food sounds yummy. Haven't found a good place in London, though. I'm surprised I got 8 right on the quiz. I thought I'd bomb it!

Heather Holden said...

Looks like I got seven of those quiz questions right, heh. Also, happy birthday--or, rather, happy birthweek, since you celebrate for more than one day! ;)

Suzanne Furness said...

6 questions right, not bad must admit a couple might have been lucky guesses! Great idea for the blog.

Enjoy your birthday celebrations! I agree one is not enough.

Kate Larkindale said...

I was doing so well on that quiz, then dipped out toward the end... 8/10 for me.

I definitely agree that you need to celebrate for at least a week for your birthday, if not the whole month!

Vanessa Morgan said...

The beginning was easy, but then you started asking for house numbers ;-)

Ali Harriman said...

50%, boy I'm slipping! Great idea for the bloghop. Enjoyed that.

Old Bessy, my aging, ailing laptop, freezes up sometimes when i try to do quizzes, so i'll have to try when i can get to the other computer. While i'm here, though, i wanted to say i wish you many happy returns of your birthday! Enjoy the Mexican food.

Magaly Guerrero said...

Only 40%. How horrifying, lol! And I could've gotten 50%, which would have been only halfway terrible. But I really wanted to imagine George Clooney as Beetlejuice, lol!

Winter Moon said...

Oh yes! Birthdays should be celebrated for at least a week.

Great quiz! I scored 60% :(

Happy birthday Lexa :)

Michael Di Gesu said...

HI, Lexa,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I SO agree about celebrating for more than one day. I usually do a month. Once Taurus starts I begin... LOL. So from April 20-May20 I am having a blast.

ENJOY yours! Definitely something to celebrate!

Have a fantastic weekend!

Ms Misantropia said...

I did worse than I thought, because I didn't know things like the number of the house in Terror on Elm Street, or how many Friday the 13th movies have been made. But I always enjoy a horror quiz!

mshatch said...

I only got a 70. I could've gotten 80 if I'd remembered who the REAL leader of the vampire was in Lost Boys. Duh.

Loni Townsend said...

I got 6! Nightmare on Elm Street brings back that fear I had about sitting on my cousin's couch (thinking a pair of hands was going to grab me and drag me in).

I don't know what I'd make a quiz about. Bagel flavors maybe?

Samuel Bledsoe said...

60%, so D-. A lot of fun. I'm going to have to try and make a quiz as well.

Rachna Chhabria said...

Though I love quizzes, I doubt I will do well in this one. I can never read on a plane :(

Laughing Vixen Lounge said...

Great quiz!!! 90 out of 100. Darn, if I would have read all the choices for the Lost Boys question before I answered it would have been 100%. Geez, it was only my favorite movie back in the day *hangs head in shame* Thanks for the fun post ;)

Annie Walls said...

Aw dang!!! 90%. Surprisingly, I missed the Lost Boys question. lol... tricky, tricky

Annie Walls said...

Oh, and it seems I'm not the only one you tricked! Hahaha!

Marilyn Parel said...

I'll take the Mexican food any day. Gonna try this quiz.

Witchy J said...

Afraid I was dismal on the quiz and only got 3 correct but it was fun to do. Hope you have a great birthday and yum to Mexican food.

S.K. Anthony said...

Darn skippy birthdays need to be celebrated for at least a week! Have an awesome time and enjoy eating the goodies! :D

Maynard Morrissey said...

Cool quiz! 8 out of 10, not bad :)

cleemckenzie said...

I didn't do a good job at the quiz. Glad it didn't have anything to do with my GPA!

And I agree about celebrating birthdays. They come once a year, but why only ONE dinner out?

Hope you have a great many birthday celebrations. Sending you balloons and champagne.

Lara Lacombe said...

I scored 60%, which I think is pretty decent considering I don't watch many horror movies.

Enjoy your Mexican food! If you ever find yourself in Texas, let me know and I'll take you to get some Tex-Mex so you can see how it compares! :)

Jeff Chapman said...

Got 50% on the quiz. Perhaps the length of a birthday celebration should be relative to your age. There has to be some advantage to getting older. Hope you have a great birthday next week.

Stephen Hayes said...

I got the first five correct and missed the last five. I did better than I thought I would.

Fiona (anubis 1 ) said...

Fun post and a fun quiz 10/10 for me. I'm a horror freak what can I say.

Gina Stoneheart said...

Awesome quiz, Lexa! I scored an 800 out of a 1000 though=( Booo... I thought I would have rocked this one since I'm an avid horror goer! Like yourself, I believe in birthday weeks. It's tradition for me to celebrate for the entire week which is why I'm usually in Mexico celebrating every October=) Here's a "Happy Birthday" to start your festivities off!

wicKED said...

I got 700! Loved the quiz. We need more of these!

Shannon Lawrence said...

Awesome quiz! I only got 70%. Sheesh, what kind of horror fan am I? I thought Kiefer ran the group, and missed the house number on Elm St. and how many Jason movies there were. Ah well. I hope you enjoyed Mexican food (my favorite).

D Biswas said...

I'm no good with quizzes-- feel guilty I didn't try it despite the effort you put in :(

Happy Birthday in advance!

Jocelyn Rish said...

As a horror lover, I'm slightly ashamed I only got 8/10. I went for the fast answer of Kiefer Sutherland, even though if I'd thought about it for even five seconds I would have known that was wrong. And even though I've watched a majority of them, I had not idea how many Friday the 13th movies there have actually been. Fun quiz!!! Thanks for all the effort you put into it!

Ava Quinn said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!! I hope it's full of fun.

I really enjoyed your quiz. I scored 70%. I'm not sure what I'd do a quiz about at my blog. Perhaps Three Stooges trivia.

Have a great birthday week!

klahanie said...

Hey Lexa,

Um, I shall give that Monster thingy type blog hop thing a miss, thank you. You know me, I think all these blog hops are a horror in their own right :)

A happy upcoming birthday to you, dear Lexa. I think your birthday should not only be a week long celebration but a worldwide holiday.

A peaceful weekend to you. And no quizzes on my blog. I'm puzzling enough :)

Gary

L.G. Keltner said...

That horror quiz was fun! And I think birthdays should be celebrated for a week too. It's more fun that way!

Beth said...

It sounds like you are having fun as always!

lifepostbrainhemorrhage said...

Hey Lexa! First off, Happy Happy Birthday! I easily spend a week celebrating my birthday; it only comes once a year. I got 8/10 on the quiz; better than I expected, although I admit I did get two lucky guesses in there. And Mexican is one of my favorite foods, so ENJOY!! Have a wonderful weekend and I hope you get everything you want for your birthday. :) Eva

Gothic Flamingo said...

Great quiz Lexa! I had a lot of fun with this, and surprised myself with 9 out of 10! All those years spent watching horror movies have not been in vain :D

I love the idea of extending your birthday for a week, I may do that this year too - hope you have a fabulous one!

Shah Wharton said...

I scored only 600/1000... Got them all correct until the last four, which I got wrong. Shocking!! FUN though :)

Have a wonderful birthday week! Yeh :)

PS: Did you ever read The Strain? I'm thrilled to hear there's a TV series of it coming soon. Excited muchly!

Milo James Fowler said...

Crap - 50% Guess I need to bone up on my horror. Enjoy that Mexican food.

Birgit said...

Happy Birthday! Mine is actually tomorrow and it is the big 50! We are Geminis-they are the best:) I was off for a couple of days due to work and had a surprize celebration yesterday for my birthday so back here to day:) I am truly blessed with great hubby and friends and family. I scored 800/1000-missed how many Friday movies and what # the house is on Elm St-I never watched them so oh well-You have a fantastic birthday!

DMS said...

i got 8/10 right- so I was pretty happy. :) Thanks for putting it together. I love quizzes!

Happy Birthday week! I think birthdays should be celebrated for as long as possible. Glad you are getting to celebrate with friends and your hubby. Enjoy!

Nas said...

Great theme. Enjoyable too!

Medeia Sharif said...

Fun quiz. I only got 3 wrong.

Happy birthday this week!

Fun quiz. I only got 3 wrong.

Happy birthday this week!

Rhonda Albom said...

At first I was going to skip the horror quiz as I am so far behind in reading (I was away for a week without internet!) and I thought I am not really a horror fan. To my surprise I knew 6 :)
Happy late birthday. I am all for long celebrations :)

Stephanie Faris said...

I got 700 out of 1000! I haven't seen Zombieland and I had no idea how many Friday the 13th movies had been made. I remember when I was a teenager, someone told me they were going to make 13 of them...of course, that was on the original series, not the remakes.

Georgina Morales said...

I missed 2 damn question! Gee, I really wanted to get them all :(

Awesome test, Lexa! and a great idea to involve readers.

Jay Noel said...

8/10. Not too shabby!

Happy Belated Birthday!!!!

Cherie Reich said...

7/10, not too bad.

Happy Belated Birthday!

Lady Lilith said...

Monster Madness looks like fun. The creepier the better.

Kate said...

Amazing post !Would you like to follow each other?

Carol Kilgore said...

I loved the quiz! But I missed three. Boo hoo :(

Hope you enjoyed the Mexican food. When we lived away, I learned how to make my own. I need a Mexican fix at least once a week LOL.

Michelle Wallace said...

Well, I didn't bother trying, because I'm HOPELESS when it comes to "all things horror"...
Heck, I'm the one crouched in the corner, blocking my eyes during a horror movie. LOL

Sounds like you had a birthday blast!

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

Hi Lexa. I have to bookmark the quiz because of a hectic week, but I'll be back to try my hand. Hope your birthday is full of wonder and excitement and blessings! Happy Birthday.

Crystal Collier said...

LOL! I totally sucked at that Quiz--because I have no idea who actors or celebrities are. Seriously. I wish I cared. No, no I really don't. *shrugs* It was fun though. Zombieland... LOL!

Kelly Steel said...

Awesome quiz!

Kim Graff said...

I need to check other people's blogs more often. You shouldn't have to tell me to come stop by :(
I got 800 out of 100. I didn't know the first one and I got the Lost Boys answer wrong. That's a really fun quiz though!

Leslie S. Rose said...

Birthday Week - GENIUS. I'm in.

Pk Hrezo said...

Hi Lexa!

I got 600 on the quiz. Those last few questions stumped me. lol

Hope you had a great bday!!! I don't think I've ever seen Relic. I should check it out.

Zoe Byrd said...

Boy I pooped out at the end of that... I did great at the beginning... I dont know more current horror stuff!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! My 50th last year went an unprecedented seven months! It took forever and it was fabulous! ENJOY yourself!

Inge H. Borg said...

Have a great Birthday this week. going out for Mexican sounds great (food, that is). Hope you have a Stella with it (I used that beer in Sirocco as one of Egypt's favorites--so, I hope it's still being consumed there).

Again: Happy BirthWEEK.

Deanie Humphrys-Dunne said...

You're right, Lexa, you should definitely celebrate for at least a week! My mom always liked to do that. Hope you have a lovely week of celebrations.

Catherine Stine said...

First of all, Happy belated Birthday! Second, that quiz was fun. I totally guessed right on two that I had no clue about. Got three wrong. Not too bad.

Jennifer Kreft said...

Thanks for the fun horror quiz. I was doing all right until the end! Happy birthweek, Lexa! I'll have to check out the Relic series. (And I'm glad to see the Celebrate hop is still going strong. I didn't know if it ended or not!)

Jennifer Hawes said...

My daughter just celebrated her birthday this past week. I agree that it's just not enough to celebrate one day. All week long is how we roll here:) I love Mexican food. I hope you had a great week.

Kelly Steel said...

Hi Lexa!

Great post...and quiz!

M. L. Swift said...

I was jamming, but hit a few in a row and petered out with only 7.

Fun, though. If I had one, hmmm...something to do with music or books.

Just wanted to stop by and say hey.

M.L. Swift, Writer

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

Celebrating your birthday for a week is a great idea. Will have to try it.

Haven't taken the quiz, but I'd probably flunk it. :)

Melissa said...

70%
I passed! Barely... LOL

That was fun. :)

Editors At Work said...

Awesome quiz.
