Stink, stank, stunk! But I did get #s 5, 6, and 8 correct. I didn't really give #1 enough thought or would have gotten it, and I misread #7 and was thinking it said he had red hair, but I probably wouldn't have gotten it anyway because I was trying to think of a real person (didn't see "Fictional"--in too much of a hurry today I guess!).
