Thanks, Temp! And you are correct about the bonus question, of course.

I have to admit that I couldn't remember the answer to #8, until I looked it up. The rest of the questions I came by honest. Stewdog sent me his answers, and, well . . . at least he didn't cheat. He got 4 out of 10 (and I'm being generous).

I'll post the answers later.

CIV, you simply must rectify that situation this Christmas! You won't be sorry.

Speaking of people who haven't seen, or don't remember, the movie, I decided to tell Sadeeq that I was pregnant with our first child by getting a blank card and writing on it thus: "Sadeeq lassoes stork." He just looked baffled.
