Am I The Eccentric Relative Of Someone?

I must apologize to Annicita. When she said, "Never heard of the show", I said, "It is not a show." Well, I had totally forgotten that it had been made into a movie until Kabu reminded me.

It's Not Sam's Fault

Trivia #7 - So far behind...I've gotten so far behind in this blog. I had fully intended to do a trivia question per day just for the fun of it...maybe even more if the correct answers were given quickly. But, one cannot always count on one's intentions.

Bull!...Bull!

"The difference between what the most and the least learned people know is inexpressibly trivial in relation to that which is unknown." ~ Albert Einstein A long time ago, before you and I were even dreamed of, wished for, or regretted, trivia was important.
