The Encyclopedia,

Social Media, 

& Me!!



It's challenge day twenty-two! Can I manage to post twenty-six times in April? Can YOU answer the questions I ripped  gathered from my handy dandy, old-school, flip through paper pages encyclopedia?

Get them all (or a few) right and you could win the boobie prize!


Valiant alphabetizers~ we have made it to:



Victory is near!

1. In Norse mythology, it is the most beautiful mansion in Asgard, where slain warriors feast.

2. The genius artist who cut off his ear...or so the story goes.

3. French novelist, possibly the father of science fiction, who is credited with "Twenty Leagues Under the Sea" & "Around the World in Eighty Days" 

4. Italian explorer whose name was given to the New World; if not for him, I'd probably be living in North Columbus, not North America. 

5. The prince of Walachia whose cruelty was so sadistic he was nicknamed Dracula. 

Bonus: This Roman goddess, the symbol of the hearth and home, was worshiped in a public shrine by six virgins.

(1. Valhalla; 2. Vincent Van Gogh; 3. Jules Verne; 4. Amerigo Vespucci; 5. Vlad the Impaler; Bonus: Vesta (the "vestal virgins" would abstain for thirty years, or be buried alive)

  7. I knew all of these but #4. My great ancestor was a famous sailor who sailed with Columbus, so I feel like I should have known that one.

    1. How cool is that? I have very little clue who my ancestors are...evidently no one very exciting!

  8. All but #4. Funny that he isn't better known considering the name and all that...

    1. It's that rotten #4 tripping people up.

      And I hate it when I know it, but can't think of the name. Grr.

  11. I totally had that one in the bag. Wahoo! I'm "V" savvy. Love this trivia, btw, and I'm wondering how I've made it to your blog this many times and not become a follower. Silly me. Remedied now.
