What a great quiz. Sadly, I'm horrible at trivia like this.

Typically, I'm the one asking my husband, "What was the name of the movie that starred that guy from (insert description, not title, of a different movie)?"

He usually knows what I'm talking about. That's love.

Dropping by from the a to z challenge and clicked on your Q post because I also used Q is for quiz (mind you my quiz is not nearly as creative as yours, in fact I stole it from the internet). Anyway not sure if I am too old or too Canadian but I am terrible at this quiz! Will be interested in seeing the answers!

Dave said...

Pam, I liked your quiz. I hope I haven't excluded Canadians from taking part with my question choices. I'm posting the answers with my Z post.
