    Yes. In fact, I think the categories should now be as follows:

    Monday: FunTrivia Mix
    Tuesday: Literature (minus The Dark Tower)
    Wednesday: All about Cats
    Thursday: Uber-Day (things only the crazy fans would remember about famous skaters)
    Friday: Dmitri Shostakovich
    Saturday: Potent Potables
    Sunday: British Actors

    Keep the literature and People categories. Please. (There aren't as many dark Tower questions as there used to be, unless you get VERY unlucky).

    Science has been around since the beginning, I think, and I'm rather tired of it. If you are replacing a category, how about that one? With History maybe, or music if you must. Or geography.

    But MY ideal would be

    People
    Ostrobothnian genealogy
    British/Russian History
    Children's literature
    LOTR trivia
    Literature
    Ancient Rome

    That is getting old. I might try a day where the catagory changes every week.

    Falling Dance, I could definitely get behind an "all about cats" day :lol::cat:

    If we're talking "ideals", I'd love:

    C.S. Lewis and/or Narnia

    and would totally love a few of cygnus' suggestions: children's lit & LOTR!

    Just please keep "religion/Bible" since it's the *only* catagory I have a chance at winning, LOLOL (after alllllll this time, it's still my only win)!

    And so far, anything with "easier" in the title (like "movies:easier") is fine by me :lol:

    The House suggestion made me think how fun a Monk catagory would be! I don't watch House, but I'm rather obssessed with Monk :shuffle:

    -Bridget

    PS "easy history" sounds like fun... maybe that could replace "people: harder" LOL!

    Decent time today, but one wrong because I was reading too fast, aiming at a good time.

    I was surprised that the random selection would give me two identical questions in a row; after seeing I got one of them wrong, I realized they weren't actually identical.

    I think this is the first time I've ever made the cumulative score top 10. I'm sinking slowly so I probably won't stay there long but it's nice while it lasts. :)

    6. If a woman was "stacked", what did she have?

    Too much eye makeup
    Beehive hairdo
    Large breasts
    Tall stature

    Yes! Play often. I'm still in the running for this game, but I think I'll get knocked out today. Oh well, I'll still come in second for the week. :lol:
    It is addictive. It's fun to play against people all over the world.

    I feel silly about missing two days this month already, which guarantees that I'll be out of the top four this month. :drama:
