This Saturday night the Canberra Montessori School will host its annual trivia night spectacular. A group of us have assembled a table and judging from the results of last years event, we don't stand a snowballs chance in Sydney...though it has been cold lately. The problem is that we have too many foreigners, no native 'stralians at all which makes the Don Bradman and Kylie Monogue (middle name Ann - I've been studying) questions all but incomprehensible. I'm expecting a pretty hearty turnout at the Weston Creek Community Centre on Saturday night.
The added jewel is that we must dress up to a literature theme and our table has been assigned the Great Book, no not Wuthering Heights or Hounds of the Baskervilles we have been tasked with bringing the Bible to life.
I generally haven't looked for the old testament for motivation in my life but I have to say that Moses holds a certain appeal, and therefore I'll be appearing in my best Charleton Heston garb and doing my utmost to turn my staff into a plague of snakes or part the Red Sea.
Results to follow.
