My Friday night consisted of a Pub Quiz Birthday, which is a nice idea in itself. You invite your friends, ask them to write up 20 questions or 1 Round of a quiz. Lots of good rounds, like a Lord of the Rings one, that believe it or not, I got full marks for. A Who's That Pokemon (the round I would have done it I wasn't beaten to writing it), and a Disney round. However, for comedic value there were a few other's that were a bit unorthodox. There were a pair of rounds (mine included) about the people who wrote them, and from those questions one stuck out about me, and made everyone fall about laughing. Jim asked:
If I were to hit someone, what race would they be?
And I think you'll agree, that's a pretty funny question. And we, knowing Jim, knew the answer. And because I don't have very much else to say here now, I'll leave you with my round to do. See how well you know me. And I'll leave you with the knowledge that I'm going to the Cardiff Bay Food Festival today!
