It was a pretty good day!

Teaching:

It was a pretty productive day! We got the parent gift wrapped and the card made. It feels great to have that done and then I got the student gifts done after school so I’m feeling much calmer. I don’t think there’s anything else I have to get done by Friday .

Exercise:

I did a 5km with Dennis tonight. The best part of the run was that my NoxGear came and it was dark enough on the way home to be necessary.

Trivia:

It was the last night of the trivia tournament tonight.

In the first round:

Who played the Blues Brothers?

John Belushi and Dan Akroyd

Spice World

What is the first name of The Rock?

Dwayne

Where was Roberto Luongo born?

Montreal

What country is closest to the North Pole?

Canada

Name three countries starting with the letter H?

Haiti, Hungary, Honduras

We won the first round with 50 points!🎊🎉

The music round started out really tough with songs that have “ho” said three times. Needless to say, we didn’t know anything. It was then Christmas songs, Christmas babies ( artists born on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day), #1 on Christmas Day, and songs Queen played at Live Aid. The last was probably our best category.

In the Kahoot round we came in second and knew:

Vanier

It was so stressful the last round as we are ten points out of first place.

Rachel

Kelowna

  1. I’m glad to hear you are having a good December in school. that month is either really fun or really NOT fun depending on the class craziness and the scheduled events of the school. Will you be able to go back to trivia in Jan?

    1. I was a little help, but we definitely rely on the lawyer who seems to have a photographic memory!
      I just checked my countdown-1day and 17 hours!

  2. I rarely get the Canadian trivia questions – some Canadian I am! I never saw Friends and I’ve not seen any Bradley Cooper movies but did think he kissed Lady Gaga. I’m not great on the sports questions either. Best I stay off your team. Congrats on the 2nd place! No trivia night til after the holidays now.
