    Nine out of ten.

    I've always seen "sanguine" used in reference to stress. I thought it meant more "calm", than "cheerful".

    I dislike trivia like that focuses on word-meanings. Not everyone speaks the same (English) language and what some word means is meaningless (insignificant).

    I got sanguine wrong too (I should have read the rest of the posts first, because t_e's clue would have helped!)

    Thanks to Brewie for teaching me the meaning of Bubble and Squeak! :biggrin:

    And, I've never heard the expression "ab ovo" before...only my knowledge of Latin provided sufficient clues to get it right (only one somewhat matches the literal translation).

    7/10

    On a better note, the three I got wrong were all "I don't Know." I know what I know!

    9 out of 10. Didn't know the bubble and squeak thing. Still don't, and won't.

    I thought you were a girl. You ovulate all the time. What is the problem?

    Cabbage and potatoes.... pah, rubbish! It's actually all the vegetables left over after a roast dinner! Which is not usually very much if I've had anything to do with eating.

    Yeah, but that was at least the closest choice...it included potatoes and a vegetable. I've come to really enjoy bubble and squeak, and every once in a while make extra vegetables with dinner just so I can make it the next day. :approve: It's definitely got a great comfort food quality to it. Perfect for gray, rainy days (I guess you need a lot of foods that fit that requirement in Britain). :biggrin:
