Trivia Mania

Trivia nights are a great way to raise funds for kinder, schools or other organisations. Basically, parents, their family and friends gather in a hired venue, together with the presenter of the night. In teams of ten or thereabouts, they will try to answer as many trivia questions as possible and the questions should cover a wide variety of topics to ensure that everyone has a go. The topics could be random current affairs questions, or TV shows, music, famous faces, who said what, so on and so forth.

Gary and I had attended THAT many trivia nights, we could still fail to answer 80% of the questions! Well, seriously, organisers of trivia nights should think about updating their bank of questions as famous faces that has appeared seem to be as old as Einstein! Music are from the 70's, 80's and 90's. I love music from that era, to dance to! But to my disdain, I could hardly name the songs or remember the names of the artists.

For the last two weekends, we attended 2 trivia nights. The first was for Lachie's kinder, and we were invited as guests for the second by a special someone. Finally last night, there was a section of answers I could answer, almost successfully, almost all by myself! List the words ending with ..."itis".

Mondayitis (That's tomorrow!), Meningitis, Enchephalitis, Sinusitis, Bronchitis, Bronchiolitis, Tracheitis, Pneumonitis, Laryngitis, Pharyngitis, Osteitis, Arthritis, Fascitis, Tendonitis, Myelitis, Polymyositis, Vasculitis, Arteritis, Lymphadenitis, Blepharitis, Conjunctivitis, Episcleritis, Iritis, Thyroiditis, Appendicitis, Colitis, Hepatitis, Pancreatitis, Nephritis, Cystitis, Prostatitis, Orchitis, Vaginitis, MyPantsAreTitis............................................

So despite not knowing everything else, we had lots of fun. It was a great social night, and an excellent profitable fundraising activity. Ah not to mention, we dressed up as witches and wizards too. And we met superheros and ancient Greek gods and goddesses. Best Blogger Tips
