I just love trivia. Jeopardy is one of my all-time favorite shows ever… after Survivor of course.

Recently, we discovered that a local bar restaurant watering hole offers a trivia night on Monday nights. You just show up… they always have a table available… and you listen to the game show host lady in front of the computer rattle of trivia questions every few minutes, while you write your best guess on an answer sheet. Then, you hand in your sheet, she scores the sheets, and gives the answers.

You can play in teams of no more than 6 players per team. Top prize is a $35 gift card.

Fun, fun, fun. So far we play with some neighbors of ours, which is good because we (Dear Husband and I) don’t know the answers to any of the questions.

Here are some questions from last night’s game. Do you know the answers?

1. What is the only country with a flag that only has 1 color… no design, insignia, or other details? Yuck.

2. Which animal is the only animal that is born with horns? NOT a Rhino, which was our guess.

3. When will Halley’s Comet come around again? OK – I got this one right actually.

The bummer thing is that we just found out about this trivia-night event. It's on Monday nights. School starts in one week. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted!

Answers: 1. Libya. 2. Giraffe. 3. 2061.

It's good we don't watch TV together.. Those are two shows I avoid and NEVER watch!

Ms. Q (aka Grand Matriarch) - you should watch them... you don't know what you're missing!

24/7 - You knew giraffes and Lybia??? I never know any of the answers. Maybe if you are ever here on a Mondy evening then we can meet up for a drink and some trivia.
