I got a dismal 17 - my own fault for trying to answer the questions at high speed and do a 'Fiona'... :cry:

My 26 has now moved down the board, as I expected it would - below the 28 and below the 26's and the 25's! ;-)

I guess TF Carthick will eventually top the board with 29 or 30 in 1:38... :twisted:

25 this month - top of the board -- my hour of 'glory' before being demoted, I'm sure! :-D

And TF Carthick has only got 19 this month. :roll:

23 for me. A good month. I am temporarily keeping Rob company in the top three. Not for long I'm sure. :lol:

Yes - I'm already dropping to second place - my 25 being beaten by a score of 24 lol! :-D

Ooh wow, I got 23 — currently in third place! :D My moment of glory won't last long either, but oh well...

It was a nuisance. An adventure was one thing - but an adventure without anything to eat was quite another thing. That wouldn't do at all. (The Valley of Adventure)

Very respectable considering you have no knowledge/interest in the amazingly talented Betty Maxey.. :wink:

25 this month - not bad - about average for me...but I was interrupted by my cat, so abandoned the one I did under 'Rob' halfway through, and had to redo it as RobH. :roll:

Interestingly, I just did it again (as Donald Duck) and beat my position, even though I got one less question right! :lol: It sort of proves, to me anyway, that if you do the quiz twice, you complete it in a much faster time... :?
