I went to a pub quiz with some colleagues – house is still messy, viagra knitting is being done on the train as usual!
On the plus side I did discover that to some people their is a well known pop artist Andy Worrell (rather than Warhol), help Homer wrote the Ill-leed (rather than the Iliad), look and Tolstoy wrote a book called Anna Karraneena! The crowning glory was when the quiz master asked us the following question:
When Roger Bannister broke the 40 minute mile what was the time to the nearest second?
Hmm – let me think about that one for a minute – even I can do a 40 minute mile – perhaps as a baby he crawled a mile.
The funniest bit about the pronunciations was that she repeated them twice giving the questions, and a further time giving the answers each time to a chorus of the correct pronunciation from everyone at the quiz.
Suffice to say we came 7th out of 21 teams and I won a voucher for a shirt in the raffle – no knitting but good fun!
More news tomorrow, in the meantime think pretty thoughts
