Now...about that trivia!!

1. Who was the first female elected chief of the Cherokee Nation? 


2. Marie Curie died from aplastic anemia believed to have been contracted from her long term exposure to her work, which she carried around in test tubs in her pocket and placed in the draws of her desk. What did Marie Curie work with? 

3. She was a lesbian activist who was married in the first-ever California lesbian wedding ceremony on February 12, 2004 (later declared invalid) and again on June 16, 2008. 

4. With more than 300 million records sold worldwide, this woman is recognized as the best selling female artist of all time. 

5. This woman met her husband when she was assigned to mentor him at the law firm they both worked at. She's now the first African American First Lady.

  1. I got 5 and the bonus. Sad Curie died but I guess her research and of course death showed how dangerous radiation is no matter it's advantages. Wonder how many men did Wilma Mankiller have to actually kill to get her job? Awful joke, I know.

    1. I wondered the same thing about her name, so if you're bad, then I'm bad too!

  2. I also thought the same thing about Wilma Mankiller! Didn't know it though. Got 2 and 5 and I actually thought Celine Dion for 4, no idea why.

    Congrats to Kelley!

    1. I think Celine was a good choice. I mean I heard that Titanic song on the radio until I wanted to throw up.

    1. On the bright side...a zero is an unbroken circle...like the friendship of a dragon. (how's that for cheesing it up on a Monday?)

  17. What's this? "M is for "Madam"? Okay, I've noted the lovely Kelley Gershke's book before. So, being awesome and also modest, I will share your posting. I'm good like that.

    You fooled me with Madonna. I thought it was "Lady Gaga"! Did you know she has a sister named "Radio"?

    I'm outta' here........
