Original Quiz answers

I am not going to post the answers (I know, boo-hoo!) to the 2nd, easier quiz until kali & lapintada answer it!!! I think that Wytze should have given it a whirl, too....and rillifane.....and anticrist....but then, they might have....which brings me to a question: Who is "Sparky?" He knows me pretty well.
There were 6 players.

Anyway....here are the answers to the first quiz...if you have yet to take it, do NOT read these answers & go try your knowledge first! :-)

1. What is my favorite movie?

The correct, 10 point answer was "Calamity Jane." NOBODY got this one right. I love this Doris Day musical, & actually want to film a remake of it playing her role, sometime in the future. My character in the saloon show at Knott's, Dusty, was based on the Doris Day role in "Calamity Jane." You got 8 points for answering my 2nd fave, "Princess Bride" (3 votes), 6 points for my next fave, "The Matrix" (1 vote), 4 points for "Princess Diaries" (2 votes), & 2 points for "Other Sister" (no votes). Just because I am in a movie doesn't make it my fave. :-)

2. What is my fave cartoon character?

Winnie the Pooh!!!! 10 points for Winnie the Pooh! I got a Winnie the Pooh stuffed animal on my 1st birthday, & I still have him. He's my fave, ever. I have many, many Pooh stuffed animals. He's just so damn cute! My original Pooh is ragged & worn, so he doesn't get slept with anymore (a newer, softer Pooh took his place), but he still holds a special place in my heart & on my bed. 1 person chose correctly. You got 8 points for the more obvious answer, Alice in Wonderland (5 votes). The other choices didn't get any votes, but they are, in order, Cartman, Minnie Mouse (my fave character to play in costume), & Homer Simpson.

3. What is my all-time fave song?

One person got the full 10 points...."When Doves Cry" is my all-time fave song. I remember lying in my king-sized waterbed in my bedroom in Alabama, listening to my walkman, when the local radio station played it for the very first time, well after midnight (it was if I had awaken just to hear it). Currently, "My Sacrifice" is second (2 votes). One person voted for "Material Girl," one for "Goody Two Shoes" (that could be my theme song), & one person inexplicably voted for "Enter Sandman" (you know who you are!). I detest heavy metal & bands like Metallica, Megadeath, Korn, etc....although "Enter Sandman" really isn't that bad of a song.... ;-

4. What is the name of the cat I have had for years?

10 points for Duncan. And guess what, EVERYONE got it right! Yea! Ernie is my newer, adopted cat.

5. What is my dog's name?

10 points for Toby, & again, everyone got it right. It's nice to know that while some seem to not know much about ME, they know my pets well! ;-

6. What was my mother's name?

10 points for Susan. Only one person got it right. I think that one was kinda hard, cause I seriously doubt I have mentioned her by name in my journal, so you'd have to know me pretty well, personally. One person got 4 points for guessing Lynn, which was actually my mother's middle name. Two people got 2 points each for Kathy, but that's actually my sister's name. I figured that name sounded familiar to the two of you, since I use it a lot, which is why that name got points. 2 people guessed Cassandra, which got zero points. Cassie was my great-grandmother's name...I never knew her. But even then, it was just Cassie, not Cassandra. No one guessed Dorothy, which is my sister's legal name (Dorothy Kathleen, but she goes by Kathy) AND my maternal grandmother's name. Which brings us to...

7. What do I call my grandmother?

Only one person guessed correctly: 10 points for Momme Dot. One person earned 6 points for Momma Dot, which is actually what all my friends inevitably call her. I say "Momme" (pronounced Mommy) & my friends somehow hear "Momma." Ironically, while I have always spelled it "Momme," the rest of my family spells it "Mommy." Go figure...I always had to be different. Surprisingly, 4 people guessed Nana Dot, which got them zero points, since other than the Dot, it wasn't even close. I talk about her a LOT (since she's so damn funny), so I am a bit surprised more people didn't get this one right.

8. How many siblings do I have?

Again, I am surprised everyone didn't get this one right. I have one sibling, a sister named Kathy. I speak of my family a lot, & have never mentioned any other sibling (naturally...since I don't have any others). 3 people got 10 points for correctly guessing 1, & 3 people got zero points for guessing 2.

9. What is my fave thing in the world?

OK....I think two of you were trying to be funny by guessing "kissing!" Yes, "kissing" got you two 6 points because I do, indeed, LOVE to kiss....but the blantantly obvious answer is "acting," & the 4 of you who guessed that got 10 points. There is NOTHING in this world I enjoy more than acting...and if I couldn't do it anymore, for whatever reason, I would cease to live. I live to act! "Singing" would have gotten you 8 points, "eating" 4 points, & "dancing" 2 points.

10. What was the 1st professional play I was in?

This was a bit of a trick question. I have been in many, many plays. But only 2 of them were technically "professional" plays...ones in which I actually got paid. Ironically, they were both in Alabama, at the Birmingham Children's Theatre. One of you got 10 points for guessing correctly..."Snow White & the Seven Dwarves." I played a Dwarf...complete with a fat suit, a head cap with a mohawk, deep voice, & Amber Benson (who plays Tara on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer") was in it with me. I was 15 years old...it was my first real show, & I got paid! I missed school for 4-6 weeks, & maintained straight A's, with a tutor & special assignments. The only other technically professional show I've done was "Best Christmas Pageant Ever," at the same theatre. I was in Moliere's "The Learned Ladies" when I was 16 or 17 (0 votes) at the Alabama School of Fine Arts, "West Side Story" at La Habra Depot Theatre when I was 19 (1 vote), "Alice in Wonderland" at Anaheim Children's Theatre around the same age (3 votes), & "Grease" in early 2000 (1 vote)....and none of those paid anything (such a deal....getting my immense acting talents for FREE!).

The highest scorer so far was Lizziepooh!!!!

Thanks for playing, hope it was fun or entertaining....or at least a little enlightening!
