Trivia Tuesday

A few programming notes before Trivia Tuesday. First, today is the official release day of Beyond Heaving Bosoms: The Smart Bitches' Guide to Romance Novels. For more information about the book, check out my interview with author (and friend) Sarah Wendell, Sarah and co-author Candy Tan’s interview on NPR and where you can buy the book from the Smart Bitches website.

Next, I want to congratulate lacips of This Is Getting Old for winning the Rock of Love 3 Fantasy League. He made a shrewd move (even if he didn't know it) by selecting Taya and not Mindy on Sunday's finale. I finished in second place because I chose both of the finalists, but lost 25 points when Mindy was eliminated. That was the difference to give laclips the victory. In case you're wondering, I am not organizing a Daisy of Love Fantasy League!

Trivia Tuesday is slightly different this week. Instead of providing a list of questions, I'm directing you to a different website for two quizzes.

For the first quiz, you have 12 minutes to name the 100 most commonly used words in the English language. I scored a 53.

In the second quiz, you have 10 minutes to name the characters from The Simpsons. I scored a 48 out of I believe 63 and feel like I should have done much better. Mayor Quinby is incorrect.

Please share your results in the comments section. Good luck!

h/t Dan via Messiah for the Sporcle quizzes.

I haven't watched it in ages and I still got 30/63 on the Simpsons quiz. Fun!

English language 54/100

Simpsons - 8/100. I think I may have only seen 2 episodes of the series. Ever.

That was my strategy all along. Wooo! What were we playing again?

68 on the language
45 on the Simpsons (Apparently it had to be Snowball (II) and not just Snowball?!) I call shenanigans!
