One quiz at a time

Post by jdaw1 » 01:57 Wed 08 Apr 2009

What Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film is now playing, for at least the dozenth time, in the Wiseman household?

{If you get it right, you then have to pose an equally useless but guessable question. If you guess wrong, you can’t guess again until somebody else has had a guess, or until a new question is posed (which would happen because a previous guess is marked ‘correct’).}

No, no, and no.

The first two guesses were not sports, though she counts both as hobbies, and this is a recognized and legitimate sport.

Also, you need not know anything about my wife in order to figure it out, though some very basic knowledge of the sport and its subculture is probably necessary.

I think I know but I may not guess until somebody else does.

No. It’s snowboarding.

Correct!

k2 is a dual purpose signifier - it represents both her initials and the brand of her board, boots, and bindings. DangerGirl comes from the way she used to ride... we're both older and significantly less crazy now.

We were rubbish.

Let’s have one that will be easier for Derek. What big-year port have I just decanted? It is the second bottle of this Symington port that I have opened this year.

I’d forgotten that I’d had a D85 this year. But not today no.

Also, seeing how this game is going, the rules above have been edited for clarity:
