What is my.Macmillan?
My office does a Christmas quiz every year. They didn't forward this year's on to me, meanies, but this is last year's. Which I won, so I know all the answers. Well, I do if I can remember them, which I don't at all guarantee.
What? When you've opened all the pressies and it's not time to eat again just yet, don't you get bored?

I think the person who set the quiz was rather an unrestructured gentleman.
HAPPY CHRISTMAS HILARY!
Here’s one back…
EINSTEIN’S RIDDLE (apparently the hardest riddle going and only 2% of the population can solve it. I’ve just started… let me know if you do it! Lots of love to you xxxxx
Ps The major flaw is that everyone knows the Swede would keep cats and not dogs :D xxx
Ok here it is…
There are 5 houses painted 5 different colours. A person with a different nationality lives in each house. The five house owners each drink a certain type of beverage, play a certain sport, and keep a certain pet. No owners have the same pet play the same sport, or drink the same beverage.
WHO OWNS THE GOLDFISH?
I solved Einstein's one... how's about you? or do you have a life? ;)
Will finish trying your quiz soon.
What I said first time round (that wot the moderaor shoved up a drain pipe) was that i scanned down the questions and got the first few... got stuck with Take That (what with having taste) and then saw No 5. and read 'ag'. Eh? what's ag??? hmm no idea says Little My.
Then she remembered she was a Chemistry teacher and its Ag. Damn you chemo brain, damn you!!!!! I can't believe I didn't instantly perceive that one like what Pope Boniface did with Giotto... but that's another story.
All the hugs to you Hilary and thanks for entertaining me :)
Little My xxxxx
AAARRRHHH Ha Ha that's all too much for me and I don't even have chemo head anymore!!! just 1/3 of a brain cell.
Have to get other half to try and work it out. Hope your all having a lovely time xxx
