Anyone who lives in Ireland knows that we’ve been hit with a week of shockingly cold weather.
OK, it’s not that shocking if you’re from a country where it gets really cold, but to us it’s meant that schools are closed, roads are “treacherous” and, most appalingly of all, quizzes are cancelled.
Well, certainly the Claremorris GAA Quiz I was due to go to last Friday night was called off. Gilligan’s quiz may still be going on every Tuesday night but I’m not willing to drive over and find out.
In other news, the Zodiak Media Group have been in contact with the blog, asking me to inform my readers that contestants are being sought for the fifth series of Only Connect.
The only drawback is that you have to be a resident of the UK – so the only way I could enter a team (of three) would be to pretend I live across the border! Still, if you do live in the right place, and wouldn’t mind meeting Victoria Coren ;-), you can request an application form at firstname.lastname@example.org.
