Would anyone be interested in a St Pat's Day quiz on our favourite actors? I will include Jared as he is Irish for the purposes of 'Alexander'. I will look up trivia about him, Colin, Jonny and any other Irishmen I can find in the film and do some very silly questions on them. Question

Yes, start studying. People who want to do the quiz, your homework is: visit Colin, Jared and co. and quiz them about their lives. Razz Wink In depth questioning is allowed!

Sounds like fun!! Will the time gaps be a problem? Or will we need to synchronise watches (or whatever)?

No, I don't want people to get stressed. What I'll do is post the questions, people will give their answers and I'll give out the answers and points in a day or two. I want people to have fun, not compete madly. I'm not even sure the answers will be correct, I shall only get them off the internet. Smile

As any good Spike Milligan character would say,
'Tis the Day of Himself, to be sure.
So Happy St Pat's, you lot. Very Happy

Is our quiz still going to happen?

As someone with emerald roots myself, I would like to say I'll be living it up with a dose of Guinness in some fine company tonight. But alas, there's nothing doing with the miserable buggers round here. Hope you lot have fun, though.

At least I'm wearing my official Guinness shirt. I would also like to proudly present, for one day only, the Great Shamrock Avatar (TM).

Guinness is my favorite beer. Maybe I'll have a shot of Jameson and don't get drunk like last time. Embarassed
