Yeah, cinnamOn. The sequence is up and down these days so if you have a list ready I'd say post it! As for round 18 I have this hunch that I'm supposed to do it (even though I didn't think I was). It'll be up as soon as I come up with something.

*Gats' dilemma is my fault!*

Nah. Wasn't such a dilemma, Engadine. Only took 5 minutes to fix . And your health problems are far more important than Trivia, yes?

I'm going to close Round 18 in a few hours since I posted it late and a few of our regulars haven't answered yet.
