Wow, I really did borrow your brain for this quiz dh--once again, I had the identical reasoning as you. (Though mine was probably more like "Nicholas II." "Wait, that's too well known. There's gotta be a Nicholas I if there was a Nicholas II, right?")

How do we think so alike? Quick, what number am I thinking of?

I always thought of Dave as being more the transcendental type.

Boffo job, gftt and to those rarefied of individuals--AP, Peg and plasticene--who could beat the quizmaster at his own game.

Go for it!

Don't be too impressed. I got lucky, very lucky. My brain was jamming badly on that question, and I couldn't bear to say coffee. I decided I could find something that ended in "ette" if I thought long enough. I finally decided that "Cosette" was surely iconic enough to have entered the lexicon (it isn't), and I misspelled it. Somehow two wrongs made a right. Sounds like a word I should know though. I've certainly sliced enough sugar beets!
