Trivia -
~We're changing things up a bit for Trivia. Over a 6 week period, we'll ask a trivia question each week.
~****You can submit your answer via email to or via PM to JavaPurl (that's C.C.) on Ravelry.****
~If you don't get a confirmation of your response within 24 hours, resend it because you know how technology can be sometimes.
~The deadline to answer each week's question will be Wednesday at 12:00noon (central time).
~Everyone that submits the correct answer each week will receive one entry into the prize drawing (so you have the potential to have six entries in the drawing).
~On December 26th, we'll choose the winner (or depending on how many entries we have, winners) and announce them and their prize on the podcast.

~Last week's question & answer: Name the movie & the two characters who have this dialogue exchange:
Person #1: "That's the problem with girls - you can't carry a map in your heads."
Person #2: "That's because our heads have something in them."
The answer: The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, said by Peter & Lucy
~Congrats to Enid, jordybear614, fourpeanuts, & iggystar for answering the question correctly & receiving 1 entry into the prize drawing.

~This week's question: Name this show, episode, & who says this quote:
Person #1: "Come on. We're boys! And you know what boys say in the face of danger?"
Person #2: "What?"
Person #1: "Mummy!"
~Deadline to answer is Wednesday 12/19 at 12:00noon (central time).
~****You can submit your answer via email to or via PM to JavaPurl (that's C.C.) on Ravelry.****
