Friday, bedding's here again. That's ok, I long ago memorized the answer.

Two wrong again. Author I've never finished. I tried and got to page 34 - of the introduction, if I recall. Then music? Never heard of either album or the wailers involved.

Done in by a fit of giggling. I was laughing so hard at my proposed answer to Question 2 that I missed Question 4 entirely.

I can't help it if I think the subject of the question is so disgusting that I have never served it in my own home.
