I thought I was a genius this morning because I managed to pick the right color shoes first go-around to go with a strange color pair of crops...I should have left it at that.  I knew the Bahamas and Canary Islands weren't in the Indian Ocean, but I thought "Maldives" was an obscure spice...WRONG. And a relative of the deadly nightshade, which had me thinking of lamps, left me with choosing the vegetable I like the least out of tomato and radish since I wasn't sure what a beetroot was...WRONG again.  Another fun one, hillmate, and again -humbling...; ) 

Thanks, I try to do something that amuses people rather than chat about my boring life. I would end up writing a story if I got started!  Glad people have a go as it's only for fun.

{#basic-angry.gif} {#basic-cry.gif} {#basic-frown.gif} I ALWAYS fail quizzes!!!!

I am sure you get some questions right. Although I have a Trivial Pursuit game - no-one to play it with now - and I only got a few questions right and I was always surprised that I actually got some of the 'cheeses'! But I'm a good loser. Only game I won't play is Monopoly as I NEVER win on that and always go for the wrong properties.

I can answer most questions when in the form of a conversation but I freeze when it comes to quizzes! LOL

I'm the opposite. :)

5/6 for me, as usual.

Next time I will try harder and get six right.  

Going to do it now.



Will have to find harder questions to keep the little grey cells working overtime :)

Err. No.

Just keep them simple please.

I did pretty well...only missed one, 'encyclical'...

I had never heard of it before so thought it would be a good one. Costing me a bit buying these quiz books to keep up with ideas...but from charity shops.

well that was humbling. :)

Won't ask. :)

i greatly appreciate that hillmate. :)

Lol i just guessed most the answers i am surprised i even got some right x

Well it passes a few minutes :)

not bad (:  i'm surprised i knew the ones i did. admitedly i did guess on a few, but the ones that i thought i knew, i did.
