especially so early in the morning, well done.


Early?? I'd hardly 8:30 early. Now then, why have I not got a tick for #8, which is right, but yet I have got a tick for #21 which is wrong?

"Early?? I'd hardly 8:30 early. Now then, why have I not got a tick for #8, which is right, but yet I have got a tick for #21 which is wrong?"

The answer to both questions is, because I am a twonk!!!!!!!!!!

In my defence, in my world, it WAS early in the morning.

I am a night owl who gets up late in the morning.

Anyroad, a decent bit of quizzing mon ami.
