Well, I guess it's up to me to start this month off, so here we go with a quiz about September!

Round 1

1. September is from the Latin for "seven," so please give me a movie
(not for TV) containing the word or number seven in its title.

2. Name any holiday celebrated in September, giving the day and where in the world it is celebrated.

3. September's birthstone is a sapphire. Name any color that a sapphire can be.

4. 7 is the 4th prime number. Please give me any prime number under 100.

5. Finally, please make a word of 4 or more letters from the letters contained in the word September.

As bethfay mentioned, there is no registration required to play this game, so join right in for as many rounds as you are able to! (we don't even charge you a fee to let you play with us! ) Just click on my name at the left of this message and PM me with your list of answers.

Since Monday is a holiday here in the States and I will be busy, this round will close on Tuesday at noon FT time.

Round 3 ~ MONDAY (slightly early...)

Hello there, once again ! (To see if I remember how to do this) let me refresh myself as I sit here watching a recent DVD purchase ... the 2004 Oscar-winning film "Crash"! Note: to those unfamiliar, I tend to get wordy with these ... ergo, allow me to apologize in advance .

1. In 2005, "Crash" pulled off a notable upset at the Academy Awards. The audiences across the world were, overall, expecting "Brokeback Mountain" to win the big prize. Surprise, surprise! The contemporary "passion piece", tied together by intermingling stories of racial prejudice in California, took home the Oscar. In doing that, too, "Crash" became the 20th English-speaking film with a one-word title to be be named 'Best Picture' in Academy Award history. Please tell me the name of another of those Oscared movies that shared that 'one-word-on-the-marquee' distinction and was named Best Picture, any year (no foreign language films, please...).
2. On the "official" site for the movie (you can link to it from the Wikipedia page for the film), there is a Photo Gallery in the "Film Info" section. The photo stills highlight twelve key incidents in "Crash" as the fictional Californians crash into each other, sometimes quite literally. Kindly have a look at those pictures and pick a MALE actor who appears in one (or more) of them. No need to note the character played in the scene[s] - just the name of the actor will work.
3. The director of "Crash" was Paul Haggis, who was inspired to create the story of the corruption/hazards of the urban sprawl that is behind the glamour of L.A. after his Porsche was stolen on Wilshire Boulevard in 1991. The Boulevard is 16 miles long and is often called "the backbone of Los Angeles" (and crooks like it, too, because of its handiness when it comes to getaways ). Here you can take a cyber ride down Wilshire - and it's pretty interesting to do (if you ever have the time to try it). Clicking 'Explore the City' (a red box) will redirect you to 8 sections/neighborhoods highlighted by photographs of them at the start of that cyber "tour". Choose one of them, if you wouldn't mind.
4. One of the most revealing truths the movie explores is that [typically] ALL of us carry within us layers of racial discrimination - sometimes it's very subtle as to almost be incidental. Other times, however, it is so large/loud that it is almost what "defines" a day for many. And it is not an issue that is "skin color specific". One group is as quick to profile another (and often even their own) as a matter of course. One of the more notable spokespeople in modern history that piped up, spoke to the issue of racial fairness in society, fought and died for the war called "civil rights" was the eloquent Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., of course. He was assassinated on April 4, 1968 and, that night, Senator Robert Kennedy interrupted his presidential campaign to give a speech from a flatbed truck in a very racially torn section of Indianapolis, Indiana. The speech was not heavy in composition or political motive - but it was as genuine a tribute to King as could have happened, some said at the time. I need to know a word that was heard in that speech in the first -or- the last sentence of it ~ and only pick words that have five letters (or more) in them, OK? Also, no proper nouns will be accepted... Note: it has been brought to my attention that some sites differ on the text (introductory/final sentences, etc.). Given that, let's just use the body of the speech as offered HERE. Thanks!
5. Certainly, Beverly Hills itself played a prominent role in "Crash", what with it being a hub of money, power and flagrant elitism on the L.A. landscape. Naturally, the likes of my obsessed-with-pop-culture self thinks only of "The Beverly Hillbillies" when the region comes up. Yes, the critics hated the TV show, from the time it began in 1962 until its exit in 1971 (but, unless you have a problem with simple folk from the Ozarks who have more critters than good sense, ethnic unrest wasn't an issue at the Clampett residence). Now ..."quit yer' squawkin' like a two-pound chicken layin' a three-pound egg" and tell me a malaprop or colloquialism that found its origin/popularity on "The Beverly Hillbillies" (excluding the one I just used, that is ....)

I reckon this will close on Thursday ~ I'll beat some drums, or something, several hours before I close it. And, as always, if you get stuck don't hesitate to PM me ! Have a terrific week, folks!

ROUND 4 - Tuesday, September 4th

It may be Tuesday today but my mind is already stuck on tomorrow - it's my FT Forums one year anniversary. An year ago (seems like yesterday) I was a toddler in here, learning the place's ABCs and look at me now! Hosting Trivia Rounds .
In memory of younger days let's start again with ABC.

1. Easily visible from a far distance, my very favourite playroom is the "Chain Games". On a perfect day I can spend 3-4 hours in a row in there, exercising the alphabet.
- Kindly give me the name/title of a chain game we have in here that has "ABC" or "Alphabetical(ly)" in it. [Bear in mind that there's a "Page 2" too ]

2. Composed at the request of Blanche, Duchess of Lancaster, as a prayer for her private use, "Chaucer's A. B. C." by Geoffrey Chaucer (duh! ) is a classic work of literature that can be enjoyed by all.
- Please pick any line, anywhere in that poem, beginning with the letter "F".

3. One of the biggest music venues in Glasgow's city centre, the ABC club (located on Sauchiehall Street), was crafted to offer music lovers an extraordinary experience.
- From their official website, in the "Diary" section, please choose an artist/band that is scheduled to perform in November 2007.

4. ABC Teach, a quality educational site, offers numerous resources for kids, parents, students, teachers, everyone.
- Please give me one of their on-line tools (ABCTools) for creating custom documents. [From the 'starred' ones listed on their Home page]

5. Our final ABC is Academia Brasileira de Ciências (Brazilian Academy of Science). Playing an important role in various scientific activities in Brazil, it was founded on May 3rd, 1916, in Rio de Janeiro.
- Please name one of the Academy's former presidents.

As usual, the round remains open until Friday noon FT time and I'm happy to help with any confusion that might arise about my requests .

Umm, Cinnamon, I scored 40 points in your round and 'berets' wasn't my answer for the last question.

And while I did add an "s" to my answer to the last question, Cinnamon did so too in her report and turned me from a "he" to a "she"
