The Unused Questions

Due to a few of our groups unavailability, who’d more pressing appointments, Thursday nights bi-weekly online quiz was cancelled. Consequently, the questions prepared for this clambake remained unused; instead gathering metaphorical dust on my laptop hard drive. Of course, I could’ve saved these intentionally absurd inquiries until the next online get together. However, hamstrung by…

An Unlikely Tale

I’ve just been unpacking a bulky new fridge which, when being shifted by GJ Strachan in isolation, felt so heavy and vast I wouldn’t have surprised me to learn it possessed it’s own zip code. Now unpacked and garage in situ, the huge silver coloured ‘construction’ now looking down on everything in its adjacent proximity….

Regressing To A Happier Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day has been and gone. With the family matriarch edging towards her seventh week in a stroke ward, there wasn’t opportunity for my siblings or me to spend the day in the company of mater.

Yesterday evening I partook in a Zoom quiz with buddies. Live acoustic music, seven rounds of inquisitions and much guffawing forming our entertainment landscape. Below are the two rounds I wrote/presented for your delectation. In addition to my usual absurd ‘True of False’ round, where I shower participants with zany fictional queries, a series of…

True Or False Round

As I’m partaking in a Zoom quiz with buddies this evening, at some point today I’ll need to write a round of questions for the inquisition. As yet, I’ve no idea of the topic of the catechisms I’ll throw into our planned entertainment brew. However no doubt I’ll adopt the same absurd ‘true or false’…

Chaka Khan, But Adele Can’t

“True of False – Chaka Khan, but Adele can’t?” A question yours truly raised to buddies during the intentionally absurd round of entertainment questions I posed during yesterday evening’s Zoom quiz.
