A "good enough" mom muses about alpha moms, adoption, computers, the State Of The World, Internet quirkiness, and the Kosmik All
OmegaMom has a "fine sense of pitch"
Which means that taking this test, to determine if you are tone deaf, was extremely painful. I was gritting my teeth at each sour note. Unfortunately for me, hitting the "NO!" button did not stop the "music". OmegaMom's score: 24 out of 26 tunes correctly identified as "played correctly" versus "played incorrectly". Ouch, ouch, ouch. It's like biting into a luscious, juicy, ripe pear, only to suddenly hit a nail. Please note that the test is, like many USA tests, highly keyed into Western sensibilities and makes a lot of assumptions about what constitutes "familiar tunes". (We have had a run on luscious, juicy, ripe pears at the local Safeway recently. Oh. My. God. I have died and gone to heaven. Not a single nail or worm amongst them.)

    I got 100%, which means I am perfectly capable of listening to music. I still can't sing worth a damn!

    I got 25 out of 26. I already knew I had the freaky hearing. I hear things other people can't hear. But I think I missed the one because I could *not* figure out what one of the songs was. Did not sound familiar at all!
