Round 21- Monday
[the theme sort of came as it built on this one ~ rather gloomy, I reckon ]

1. Please give me the name of a biography written by Pulitzer Prize-winning author A. Scott Berg (or the name of the person the book is about will work).
2. The "songstress" Pink released an album/CD titled "I'm Not Dead" in 2006. I'm just needing a track from it.
3. Name a male character (one who actually HAS a name) in Arthur Miller's play "Death of a Salesman".
4. 'Mike the Headless Chicken' managed to live for 18 months after his head was chopped off in the mid-1940's. Poor dude - but his brain stem wasn't severed so he didn't die in short order at all. Every year there is a Festival in his honor in Fruita, Colorado. Please tell me an event in said festival that was scheduled before noon on May 20, 2006 (no registration, sign-ups or check-ins ~ things you can actually watch or participate in).
5. Lovely Canadian ballerina Melissa Hayden died on August 8 at the age of 83. Please pick a ballet she created [or debuted] a character in in the 1960's or 1970's.

This will close sometime Friday. Any help needed feel free and encouraged to PM me. Enjoy!

wdwfla is having a tumultuous day so, you poor scamps , I get to fill in again...
Round 28 - Monday

1. The Emmy Awards (for 'excellence' in television) were handed out last night. Please choose a winner in one of the Best Supporting Actor/Actress categories [6 to pick from].
2. The film The Black Dahlia, directed by Brian DePalma, will be hitting the theaters next month. I need the first and last name of a female character that will be in it.
3. One of my personal favorites, Kurt Vonnegut, wrote a collection of short stories in 1999 called "Bagombo Snuff Box". I'm looking for the title of a story in it.
4. The huge "Mall of America" in Minnesota has many places for its hungry shoppers to chow down. This time name a restaurant there that is NOT in the Food Court and NOT considered 'Specialty Food'.
5. Time Magazine recently listed its annual picks for "The 50 Coolest Websites". Please select one named in the News and Information group.

That's it! This'll close Friday sometime. 'Til then!
