Trivial matters

I ran a Trivia night for the school. It all came together on Saturday night, when over 100 people came to laugh and play.

Nicholas was helping us set up (with Mum and Dad of course) and I encouraged him to write a message on the table for his teacher. All the tables were set with white paper, and a cup of crayons. Nice clean table setting, and good fun too! Not sure if any adults got the idea of writing on the table, but I drew a cat. Like you do.








Elke and Anne-Maree hung 99 balloons from an umbrella, each with a lucky number inside. Each balloon won a prize, and we happily popped all 99 of them. Elke was delighted with the number of balloons - 'neun und neunzig Luftballons'. But for some reason she wasn't keen to sing that into the microphone.







There's the crowd - see how happy they look? See how much they want to open their wallets and hand over most of the cash, if only someone can make it worth their while!










Earning bonus points - gentlemen dressing up as ladies... awwww.

It was a lot of work, but people keep saying we should run another one next year. And every year. Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha as if.

Just got my copy today Pauline. Your metallic cards look great. The touches of red are the perfect accent for all that pewter. Very sophisticated indeed. Congrats!
