10:19 pm: Sunday evening
Friday saw the second day of the course, and another breakfast of a bacon bap and a coffee. After the course, a train ride to Liverpool and another to Bromborough.
Saturday started with a meeting for Harry and Viv in Tanzania, after which we had a look at Ifan's computer before lunch. Then it was off to Starlight Express at the Empire. That wasn't too bad, but quite disappointed compared to what I was expecting. Then off to a hotpot supper and quiz at church in the evening, 2 points for a right answer, 1 for a partial answer. Where was Errol Flynn born?
And today, the usual sort of Sunday: breakfast, church, lunch, snooze, more church, home. And tonight we're watching Lewis.

Did you wear pink?

1 point for a partial answer must have gotten tricky to judge. So where was Errol Flynn born? Do we have to go to Google? *g*

I recall feeling a little deflated after Starlight Express. It just didn't really take me out of myself in any way.

We offered an answer that should undoubtedly get at least one point. Unfortunately, we didn't get anything for it. Not happy.

You tell me where you think he was born, and I'll tell you how many points you'd get and why.

Excellent answer, 2 points. If you had just said Australia, you would score zero. "No, there's a whole sea between Australia and Tasmania."

But Australia is an excellent answer. It's more than almost anyone would know.

I know that, you know that. That's why I wan't happy. But Viv said it was just for fun and I shouldn't be bitter and twisted about it.

Yes, but Viv has been blessed with some sort of special nature that can overlook that sort of thing, and we haven't! Did the people really think Tasmania wasn't in Aussie?!? *sigh* I guess you have to put this one behind you.
First quiz night I ever went to at St Anthony's, before Christy even started, I won a spot prize. I had to go up and collect it in front of everyone, including the parish priest. I won a box of condoms.

Ooh, lucky you. And what with you being Catholic, too. The only time I ever won a prize like that, Viv was already pregnant.
