Gail Collins, "Totally Final Year-End Quiz": How Bored Are You?

In her first New York Times op-ed of the new year entitled "Totally Final Year-End Quiz" (http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/01/02/opinion/02collins-quiz.html?ref=opinion&_r=0), Gail Collins springs a pop quiz on her readership. Collins writes:

"One of the great things about being in a new year is getting to wipe 2013 from our minds. Completely. Forever. Except maybe this one last, final, end-of-the-year quiz. (Coming Tomorrow. 2014: What’s Gone Wrong So Far?)"

Well, if you answered (correctly or incorrectly) 1-3 of Collins's questions, you obviously have plenty of spare time on your hands (don't tell your boss).

If you answered 3-6 of Collins's questions, you're most likely one of those people who thought Collins's persistent dog-pooping-on-the-car-roof joke was hilarious (you also probably enjoy watching reruns of "Gilligan's Island").

If you answered 6-9 of Collins's questions, you might be suffering from an obsessive-compulsive personality disorder.

If you answered all of Collins's questions or hit the "redo" link, you're probably also busy composing an angry comment to me, disparaging my haircut. (Sorry, anonymous, haircuts and clothes are not my "thing.")
