A quick question. Here is a quote from Music Week in 1973 Peter and Mary were almost pushed off stage; girls fainted in the traditional fashion, floodlights and coppers’ helmets were knocked over – and you could hardly hear XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX singing for the fans’ frenzied screaming. What is XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX replacing? Hint: you know the first thing […]

When people my age hear the name CJ the first thing that pops into our head is “I didn’t get where I am today”, but that is closely followed by the bloke who used to be on Eggheads and then wasn’t. I stopped watching Eggheads a while ago for no particular reason but last week […]

Jayne and I went to a fund-raising quiz at Crawley Labour Club last night. We formed a team with the chairs of Horsham and Crawley CLPs. My recent track record on quizzes has not been brilliant; a long string of second places is what it feels like.

A few more questions from last week’s quiz.Â One set are all about Feb 16th (the date of the quiz) and another set are all about last year.Â The quiz was originally scheduled for Jan 19th when 2010 would have been fresher in the memory.Â I had to scrap my set of questions based on […]

In response to Peter, I’ll post a few questions, starting with a few that you can’t Google anyway. Quizzes often have picture rounds, and it is really easy to get pictures of anything you want in the internet age and the invention of Google Image Search.Â Of course going on an image search can get […]

Tonight’s quiz could have gone worse, but it could have gone better too, and having a depressing self-critical streak I know where I went wrong. I think the questions were better suited to an event where they could be given time.Â A lot were ones you probably wouldn’t know, but could have a good guess […]

I’m putting the finishing touches to questions for the quiz on Wednesday night (fundraising for Horsham Labour – sold out but could maybe squeeze another body or two in).Â I had a couple of brilliant ideas, which I am not going to incorporate in case they caused major civil unrest and/or ideological splits.
It is not that I am unsociable or anti-social, but as time goes on I do admit that I am more and more content with my own company.Â I am happy enough to go out with friends but I don’t feel bad if I am spending a night in – and now that I have […]

Got a phone call at about 9pm from a work colleague inviting me to a pub quiz that was starting in ‘about 5 minutes’.Â Â I thought it was another of the Alpha course quizzes, which I normally go to with him, but it turned out to be just a normal pub one.Â He had gone […]
I went to a quiz night tonight, in aid of the Alpha people, which is a strange thing for an atheist to do I suppose, but they are nice people and I do enjoy a quiz.Â I was wearing my 25th anniversary Spizzenergi t-shirt – the one that says “1979-2004” on it so it looks […]
