ETA: It's actually quite good test - those are the most common errors I see on student papers. I might send my online students to try it, especially as there's an answer key.

Your Score: English Genius

You scored 100% Beginner, 100% Intermediate, 100% Advanced, and 100% Expert!

You did so extremely well, even I can't find a word to describe your excellence! You have the uncommon intelligence necessary to understand things that most people don't. You have an extensive vocabulary, and you're not afraid to use it properly! Way to go!

Thank you so much for taking my test. I hope you enjoyed it!

Oscar: Live Blogging 1

I admit it; I'm a movie geek. I love the Oscars, and I'm watching them now.

Javier Bardem has just won Best Supporting Actor (not a surprise), and, with the win by The Golden Compass for Visual Effects, we are spared having to say "Oscar Winning movie, The Transformers"

The song from "August Rush" was pretty kick-ass. I'm rooting for the one from "Once," but this was pretty good.

Oscar, Live Blogging 4

Woah! The Bourne Ultimatum just won best Film Editing. So what happened to the theory that the winner of Best Picture always wins Film Editing??

But, by all accounts, it deserved it.

Oscar, Live Blogging 6

The score for Atonement just won. Yay!!! (Except, I have to wonder what happened to "There Will Be Blood" - this was the most significant score this year, I think)

It may be Atonement's only win.
