    Geez. The only questions I got right were the ones about Madonna, Spongebob and Mystic Pizza. I’m so ashamed.

    Lord. 1 for 10. Well, I kinda sorta knew the answer to question ten, but I didn’t know the guy’s name…so call it 1/5 out of 10… ;)

    Did you have the ‘a-ha moment’ though, when you saw the answers?

    Question 1 about the blog made no sense. A non-sequitor. I knew part one of that question, so I guess that’s a .5

    You might tell how many this is out of? Is it out of 10 or out of, well, however many questions there were?

    Anyway, got 4. (and if I got them all right all on a regular basis I’d be bored out of my mind so thanks. Still – a little heavy on the pop culture this time and light on the news. I am therefore always slightly disadvantaged. LOL

    no. 6 because I guess my Greek clasic stuff just sticks with me. I learned that (the basics that is) as – counts backwards on fingers — an 11-year-old in England. Don’t think about it much at all – though those Gods stories are great, but it pops right into my head when I need it most.

    Good to know in case I am every cornered by Spiros the kebab-wielding serial killer. Full of stereotype, I know.

    …cornered by Spiros the kebab-wielding serial killer – ROTFL

    I guess the blog bit for 1 was irrelevant.

    Here’s an offer – pick a topic – specific or broad and I’ll set questions on that theme, or related in some circuituous way:)

    Bananas and the women who love them.

    Wait, did I just type that out loud?

    And I meant to add something along the lines of “… serial-killer who said, “Zeus’ family tree now – or it’s your bloody-sheep-dipped death.”
