Goody Goody

This is actually a re post of an entry from my old Blog (Yahoo 360) roughly two years ago. I'm going through that Blog now since it's closing down and I don't want to lose some of my more brilliant postings (ha ha). They had an export feature, but, it exported into a bunch of symbols and squiggles; basically, useless. So, I'm going entry by entry and doing the old copy and paste functions. Maybe I'll do another "The Best Of" book, who knows.
Anyway, I thought this was a fun post. Care to take the survey (again)?
Mrs. B

Mrs. B is tired of being Mrs. Bitch. B is not for Bitch, it is for "Bur...". So, in an attempt to focus my brain onto mere trivia (wow, was that relaxing) I came up with this quiz. Don't send me into another hormone-induced rant by not taking it, please!

We all know there are certain things we should do for either ourselves or others that, perhaps, we simply don’t do. Maybe we get twinges of guilt when we think about it, or maybe not. BTW, since Mrs. B does not have kids (of her own womb), there are no kid-related questions here, sorry. Here’s a simple quiz to find out where you stand on the “goody-goody” scale. Give yourself one point for every “yes” answer. Comment with your score, please!
I floss my teeth at least once a day.
I brush my teeth before I go to bed at night.
I wash my face before I go to bed at night.
I go to the dentist for cleanings every six months.
I go to the MD once per year for an annual check-up (for women, this is the gynecologist).
If “of age”, I get either a mammogram (women) or prostate exam (men) as recommended.
I get my eyes checked once per year.
For the most part, I eat healthy foods and have a well-balanced diet.

I have at least six months of living expenses saved in case of an emergency.

I pick up after my dog in public.
I change the cat box at least every other day.
My animals are never without food or water.
I routinely take my animals to the vet for annual check-ups and shots.
My animals have appropriate identification (tags/microchips).
My animals are spayed/neutered.
I don’t use any products that have been tested on animals.
I faithfully recycle.
I always thoroughly wash out all recycled cans, bottles, cartons, etc. before throwing them in the recycling bin.
When dining out, I always leave a tip (unless the service does not warrant one).
I never litter (this includes throwing chewed gum or cigarette butts out the car window).
I always return phone calls/emails (assuming they are from people I know, not telemarketers or spam).
When I go away on vacation, I bring back a few gifties for the “important” folk back home (kids, spouse, pet sitters, etc.)
I donate time, money or appropriate items to the charity(ies) of my choice.
I am a socially conscious consumer/investor.

I vote in all elections that I am eligible to vote in.
I read the paper/watch the news so that I am current on what is going on in the world, the country, the state, my town.
0-10 You obviously never had a mother.
11-20 Your mother did not nag you nearly enough.
21-30 You are one of those people that want to be cool but secretly try to do “the right thing”; some in high school probably snickered and called you a “goody goody” behind your back.
31-35 You’re getting up there on the scale. More than likely, you were an honor student in high school and you are now earning six figures.
36-40 You’re near perfect! Are you bored?
41-45 You should lead a seminar on how to live the pure life, make a load of money and donate it to saving the spider monkey
