If there's someone out there who claims to have never heard the song I'd have to ask what rock they've been living under. :) I've heard a cover version (by The Corrs) but never th...

Re: TD 214: Ladies of Shakespeare Know Who I Am

I've only ever used/seen "viola" as purple. Google Translate. (I know! I'm sorry!) Verifying it in a couple Italian-English dictionaries just...

It's crunch time! With doubletons still available for all questions, singletons still available for 10, and the possibility of -10 bonus points, you, yes, YOU could finish this TD with a single-digit score. Only fifteen hours left!

Just under 72 hours to go, folks. Over 40 singletons (and some very surprising ones, at that) still up for the taking, and only one question's received all possible correct responses so far. TD glory is within your reach!

As always, shoot me a PM with any questions or revised answers.
