Cool Man, I suck!

I've spent hours researching and stuff and I don't think I've answered 50 of the questions yet! Good work you guys! This is a lot of fun

As Pern sepcialists and "nutters" we know thére's a group of people out there that appreciates a real contest, with tough questions and no easy meat


Thanks for the compliments, Jax. Good luck!

Well, there is one or two questions that count as easy meat. We did ask her eye colour afterall!

Consider this: it's coincided with a period involving:

helping my mum and step-dad shift house
working on two assignments for university, one still underway
having a residential school
having my father visit for a week, from Victoria

So not only have I had no time to do research, I've no energy to complete the quest.

Just yours Kesal, with just 16 hours left to go. That'll make you the Grand Prize winner for sure if others don't get cracking!

I have now submitted my entry!
It took me 7-8 hours to answer, and I think I had to leave 10 blank as I just couldn't find anything to answer. At least one was a total guess, but maybe I get lucky.
I think the quiz was harder on my copy of Dragonholder than on me, 'cause a lot of the pages began to fall out 3 hours ago - oh well, maybe I get lucky and win a new copy .

Sent my entry in!

Took some time, and I only had the internet to use - all my books are half and hour away, and with no internet there and no time to walk there and back, I just used what resource I could find!

Fun, but tiring!!!

It is a pity, Crispy, that you couldn't have walked there and back. With all the posting, and Qeust-taking, and Anne reading, you must be starting to get soft and flabby around the edges by now.

So... are you looking more like Jonathan Coleman than Julian Clary?

Actually, we still have had very few entries, so as it stands now everyone is going to get a prize. But you never know if/when a slew of entries will arrive and change that!

I'm still feeling the effects of so many hors in the computer chair! I couldn't believe it when I looked up when I was finished and found it was 4pm - I'd sat down at 9am! I didn't send it for another hour or two because I'd had to go do some other things (like move my stiff body!) I hadn't even eaten yet!

I got to the computer for 3pm... I left it at 7pm!!!

My housemates actually phoned me because they were worried that I hadn't come home yet, when I left at 10.30 that morning!

C_ris -- you put to shame all of the people that had time and interest to enter but didn't because they didn't think they knew enough! With just the internet as a resource, C_ris got over half the questions right! More about scores I shall not say at this time.

Ooo... this is really exciting.... if he did that well, with only the internet, I wonder how well I did using the internet AND Dragonholder .
Hmm... better not think too much... I'll end up not being able to sleep...

Yeah I know, I was just hoping for a time frame, and since you and I both sent ours in before Crispy did, and Cheryl has quite obviously marked Crispy's one, (cruel cruel grammies!) that we had the right to ask??

You're welcome to ask, I just don't have an answer for you yet! It'll be soon though, possibly today or tomorrow.
