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 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!"
The answer: Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol, said by The Doctor & Kazranas as a child.
~Congrats to Enid, jordybear614, fourpeanuts, & dartfrog911 for answering the question correctly & receiving 1 entry into the prize drawing.

~This week's question: Name this movie & who says this quote in it:
"Folks, I have an announcement to make. An announcement. And I want you all to be the first to know. I don't know if the best things happen while you're dancing or whether they just happen in Vermont."
~Deadline to answer is Wednesday 12/26 at 12:00noon (central time).
~****You can submit your answer via email to or via PM to JavaPurl (that's C.C.) on Ravelry.****
