Choose your favorites, I have added Halloween , :shock: though I doubt it will be used, :D have fun, and this time I promise to be there. ( cant decide if that's a good thing, or a bad one! )

Have plumped for next Saturday folks, hope that dos'ent cause too much indignation, indigestion, congestion, procrastination, or general dissaray.Thought if I went with general consensus, and went for this very day, (17th ) id be keel Hauled for being so late with the announcement. :shock:

Quiz written. May have to ask you to give it if it's bucketing down here 'cause of severe satellite internet connectivity interference

Om

5 Which 2 actresses played Kris Kochansky?

14 How did Lister kill the vindaloo monster in DNA?

15 Rimmer used the initials BSC after his name? What did that stand for?

Jane won and did her best impression of Hermione Granger with extra knowledge; Bogie made a good run for 2nd and would have harried Jane except for timing (excellent strategy there :thumbl: ); and Laura edged out the rest of the competition for 3rd. Squig, Jackie, and Kel did well, and Kel would have been competitive if she had not missed a third ofthe questions. Kel won Kenya in the country draw. A good time was had by your quizmaster, even with the annoying MSN lag of about 5-7 minutes......grrrrrrrrrr. See you all next month :D
