    Funny, at least this time, I know two answers which aren't correct for sure - at least from what I learned by watching TV. But do watching TV shows helps for winning game-rounds. o_O So I re-considered my vote... and simply picked what Hazel had chosen. Best strategy! Next time I just hit blindly. [face_mischief] :p

    It's all about strategy! [face_mischief]
    (Actually my thoughts went a bit different, but I came up with the same answer as Hazel, so I picked hers in the end. Btw, Gunny, I almost had taken yours. ;) )


    Oh, and thanks for picking mine again, Jade. I would be very grateful, if you could continue choosing mine. *curtsies and bows in an historical fashion way* [face_batting]



    Let's see what these letter stands for...
