Alrightey guys!

I purchased a couple of interlaps to look at different sizes and shapes, and have not been able to do anything with them. In this contest, the winner will receive a 10x5 colorless marquise, a 5mm colorless round (not a hearts and arrows, but fantastic cut, and you can see hearts if you have a viewer.), and lastly, a 6x4mm colorless pear.

I love the interlaps, and thought this would be a great way to share them with another addict, or to introduce them to someone who wasn't sure how good they were. (Also, if you are an asha exclusive type person, now you can compare them live!)

Anyway, this contest will be in trivia format, that way the results as well as the answer I choose, will not be biased. The contest will last 4 days, and the cut off time will be Sunday, May 23rd, at 4pm PST to turn in your answers. If there are multiple people who get the answers right, there will be a last "sudden-death" question. and the winner chosen from there.

I really like trivia myself, so I hope you guys have fun with this, and maybe learn a little factoid or two yourself! Good luck everyone!

1. How old is the archaeopteryx, a fossilized animal that is both reptilian, and avain?

2. Name the race of warrior women, famed for their exploits in the Trojan war and ruled by a queen ?

3. Paul McCartney has always used his middle name, what is his first name?

that's why you're on the internet! There are ABSOLUTELY NO RULES against looking up the answers. Heck, if you google'd a couple key words, I'm SURE you'll have the answers in no time. Do you think I just KNOW this stuff? I found it here...on the good ol' internet!

Darn, I forgot to specify that the answers should be PM'd to me. I will be using a different set of 3 questions since it is too easy to google the answers to see if they match the question. (Google'ing a question to look for an answer is harder...)

For all those who already sent me PM's regarding the first question set, your answers will still be considered if they were sent before the time on post#5.

I'm REALLY sorry for not specifying earlier...I'm a dunce!

NEW QUESTION SET:

1. The ancient Italian town of Pompeii and a great number of its inhabitants were buried when a volcano near Naples erupted in 79AD. Name the great volcano, which is now a tourist attraction.

2. King Edward VIII gave up the British throne to marry an American divorcee. What was her name ?

3. From which flower does the expensive spice of saffron come from ?

Please answer this set if you are playing AFTER 5-19-04 at 9:46pm, DT time. Thanks, and I apologize for the misunderstanding.

okay folks....only 5 more minutes to get your answers in!

For all the people who answered round #1 correctly, you will be PM'd a sudden-death question by the end of today. It will be multiple choice, and the winner will be chosen from there. Good luck everyone!

okay...results are in...the players who answered round one, and sudden death correctly are:

Ginger7
Kandry
Heller
Drakonlore
Shopsalott
BeeBoo

In case you're wondering, the answers to sudden-death were coffee, peanut butter, chocolate, and vicks vaporub. Who on earth would have guessed chocolate?!?!

Anyway, the winner will be determined based on the shortest time it took them to answer the question. I have recorded the date/time the sudden death question was read, and the date/time, the answers were forwarded to me....and the winner is....

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you Andrea! I'm so very excited!

Now I'll finally have a chance exam the DT-famous Interlap!

As to the answers, I'd thought about moth balls as a choice but chocolate won out b/c I had one in my mouth (and a few stashed in my desk drawer ) as I was thinking up the answers, so yeah for chocolate! I think I'll celebrate by eating another one of those yummy Lindt truffles now.

Thanks again Andrea!

The Interlaps have arrived ~ Pics!
Quote this post and reply to it Post#22 @ 05-31-04 , 02:23 AM


Hi Andrea, thank you for the lovely Interlaps! Sorry I didn't get a chance to reply any sooner, its been one crazy busy Memorial weekend. I'm just taking a break from stripping ugly 80's wallpaper (curtesy of previous owner) to post a reply so you don't have to worry. These beauties arrived safe and sound. My DH was kind enough to take a few pics of the stones so I can post them up for all to see.

By the way, those draw string pouches that you hand-made for each stone are adorable! Thank you! I've included a pic of the draw string pouch for everyone to see. The photo came out a bit dark but the pouches are really the prettiest peach color.

Thanks again Andrea! When I get a chance to set these beauties, I'll let all know!

the top was taken indoors w/o sunlight, the others where taken next to glass door in direct sunlight. Both the marquise and the pear display the bow tie effect in the middle 2 pics, but the last one shows how pretty the marquise is at a different angle and the round's sparkle is more obvious.
