World's shortest Wagner quiz

You've probably seen the World's Smallest Political Quiz by now, for which I've been compiling the results from NZ quiz-takers over the years . A Wagner group I'm on has now come up with the world's smallest Wagner quiz to determine whether you're really a Wagnerphile. And here it is:

Early one morning, just prior to whatever time the alarm is set to, you and your life partner (or your partner du jour, if you're that sort of person ;-) are in the middle of a passionate, amorous moment, when the clock radio switches on, and the station it's tuned to happens to be broadcasting somethingby Wagner. Do you...

(A) Immediately switch it off and get back to the business at hand?

(B) Leave it on, using the music to enhance your experience?

(C) Abandon your lovemaking so that you can better focus on the music?

(D) It would depend on what Wagner excerpt they were playing.

  2. You must have been blogging for about 3 months - that is usually when bloggers stop trying to change the world and start doing memes and writing about sex.Which is much more intersting of course.

    But I've been writing about sex and trying to change the world for years, Ruth. Blogging just gives me a new way to do it. :-)

  4. I guess pc wants to get in the top 10 search results for wagner and sex.

    He's sinking in the classical sex ranking after all...

  5. Damn, you're on to me Berend. :-)

    Problem is, there's far too much competition for Wagner and sex. Maybe I should try an article on that ...

  6. You could try telling us how good architecture will save the world. One of my readers sent me this:

    Nothing to do with Wagner or sex.
