Recommended Posts



4/5 + *!!!!

Usually entertainment is my strong suit, and sports a major blind spot, but the one I missed was the musical on Monday.

5/5.  The Civil War was semi-recent history when I was in school, judging by how old our books were.  I had ancestors on both sides.

Still waiting for @Fex to report, but meanwhile I name @Driad as Winner of Week 25. While it was not Driad's first perfect week, it was the only perfect score for this week.

Congratulations!

*curtseys*  Thank you, Saber!  By the way, I enjoy that you use different criteria in different weeks to choose the winner.  It adds a bit of suspense.  🙂

Thank you @Driad. The final contest winners are going to be selected by some unusual criteria this season as well. I don't know yet if Red Shirt* avatars will be one of them.

*Star Trek reference.
