~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

the title of this post refers to one of the questions (that stumped us) in my little trivia challenge yesterday. geography was never one of my most confident subjects in trivial pursuit, but i can assure that i will now never forget that timbuktu is in mali. which is in africa. (didn't help that i thought it was a city in siam, now thailand. which, y'know, is in asia...)
i have my moments.

i had a great time though and even more enjoyed hanging and playing with the people i was there with. my high school and ghost-hunting pal dave and his wife, christine, put together a great team--we just need someone to cover those geography questions better in the future!
