21 right for me which is good. It puts me currently 10th which will certainly drop as others do the quiz. Personally I always regard the quiz as just a bit of monthly fun. I certainly never come anywhere near the top of the scoreboard.

Found the quiz really difficult this month! Only got 21 which is low for me. Too many questions on Mallory Towers and St Claire's, lol!! :roll: :lol:

I do feel a bit bored with the quiz lately, I must admit, as I find it impossible to complete it in under two minutes, which I know is the main criteria for getting a good ranking. So many people seem to be able to complete it in 2 minutes or less, and I'm still amazed how they manage it!! Still - its only a bit of fun I guess! :wink:

I got 20, which is not bad for me. :D I've been wondering for a while, though, who "Frilly Knickers" is — probably nothing in it, I know, but it still seems a bit of an odd name for someone on an Enid Blyton site... :shock:

Tony will know.
I was going to use 'Ern's Briefs QC' but changed my mind at the last minute.

I must admit as you're the king of daft names, Pete, I wondered if Frilly Knickers was you, lol! :lol:

Can't be, as Pete uses a different name every month and Frilly Knickers has been appearing every month for quite a while now. Although it does sound like a rather Pete-esque name, I agree. :mrgreen:

It's not a name I would consider using - not that I'm saying that the names I use are much better I must add!!

I delete 'Frilly Knickers' and 'Bra Strap' every so often. They've usually had another go already, under a more ordinary name. Trouble is, they keep coming back!

Names like that sound more suitable for a Benny Hill forum than an Enid Blyton quiz!
