Wedding (Singer) answers

So here we go, the answers to yesterday’s 1980s themed questions, as asked at my friend’s wedding.

Obviously, how well (or otherwise) you did in these will give away your age!

In our case, I’m pleased to report that we didn’t let the good name of MacGyver down. We scored 19/20, which was good enough for us to be declared joint-winners with the law-abiding citizens of the Hill Street Blues table. Both tables received a free bottle of Prosecco to celebrate their tremendous knowledge. 🙂

Wedding (Singer) quiz

Last Friday, New Year’s Eve, I was an attendee at the wedding of my good friend Niall and his lovely wife Catherine.

A really nice touch, well if you’re me anyway, was the holding of a quiz for the first hour or so of the wedding banquet. 🙂

As we took our seats in the dining room, we noticed the Lewis Carroll-esque box you see here. Upon opening this we discovered 20 cards, each containing a trivia question.

These were a clever addition, in my opinion, as they were obviously google-proof.  That said, our table actually did well on these questions, even managing to correctly guess how many stitches Catherine had to receive after a nasty fall, aged 5.

It was seven, just in case anyone ever asks…

PlayYourCardsRightAs you must now be aware, this blog primarily concerns itself with my experiences on the table quiz circuit. By now you also know that’s just as  glamourous as it sounds!

Well, just like any good pro (or determined amateur), I find that it’s impossible to put the brain to rest just because you’re not actually taking part in a competitive event.

The sport similie breaks down at this point though as I’ve never been the type who prepares for quizzing like it’s a sporting event.  I’ve known some – reading through almanacs and encyclopaedia on their spare time. One day, when I was in college, I popped into a service station to pick up some sweets to find a quizzing acquaintance working the till.  It had been a quiet afternoon for him, obviously, as he had a copy of that year’s Who’s Who open on the counter.  Not my idea of a fun read.

So, obviously I play along with other quizzing endeavour when I can.  Here are some of my favourites.
