Life has been a bit hectic since the NWC Awards night and Christmas party last Wednesday.
There was a major traffic snarl up that evening and despite setting off earlier than usual, it took me an hour to get under three miles! As a result of everyone being late we couldn't start on time, so had to cut out the party games that usually happen post awards and food- writers are so competitive.
Despite that, the table quiz was fiendish- I think Pat (who writes them) knew we'd have studied the major events of the year in preparation so changed tack. :D
The questions were designed to have corny answers, and points were given for originality, but I only started to see the obvious by the time we were going through the 'real' answers.
How does Good King Wenceslas like his pizza?
My answer: deep and crisp and even- though I missed out the crust bit, as in deep crust... (groan).
And this one is obvious once you're told the answer: Why did no one bid for Rudolph and Blitzen on eBay?
Answer: they were two deer (too dear - groan groan).
I suspect they came from Christmas Cracker Jokes.
Thank goodness I don't try to tell jokes- at least not intentionally...
