Thanks, Pat! But it's actually mostly dumb luck. See how I've tanked in the first few days of July?

Holy crap! that's a little overwhelming - and congrats Ruth! (guess all that geocaching and trivia work comes in handy in all kinds of places...)

I hate second guessing myself - clicking the right answer then doubting it so changing my mind to the wrong one...argh!

I really, REALLY shouldn't play when I am this tired.... I also really hate making stupid mistakes when I absolutely know something but hit the wrong button cuz my eyes are fuzzy!

I dunno.....they are both pretty rough. The theater one is just demoralizing because it's obviously something we all know and love and.....ONLY 3 RIGHT???!!!! *slamming head into wall!*
