Trivialities 2

Trivia again last night. We had a good first round and then kind of tanked in the second. Yet we still would've won, or at least tied for first, if we'd gotten the last question right. As is so often the case, we managed to come up with the right answer and then talk ourselves out of it and turn in the wrong one. In retrospect, I don't know why I ever went along with the idea that there are more Old Navy locations than there are Sears locations.

No real stand-out, interesting questions from last night. I guess I didn't know that the town where the Twilight novels are set is called Forks, which isn't very interesting. Although one of my teammates did indicate the name by pointing to a fork on our table. I wonder if that's how they came up with the name for the town when they founded it? Let's see what Google says...

Hmmm - the town's chamber of commerce web site has a whole Twilight section! http://forkswa.com/twilight/

And there can't be much to worry about there, since the official town site's Current Issues page hasn't been updated since 2010, when there were three hot issues, including this one:

Support of the Forks Beautification Committee. Council Members Mike Breidenbach and Bruce Guckenberg are assisting Marsha Yanish, Bill Sperry and the rest of the beautification committee in their efforts to make Forks “sparkle” for our Twilight visitors as well as our residents.

So, yeah, Twilight and stuff. Big deal there, just like the trivia question suggested.
