We are the Champions....

Last night we were part of the team of six for a quiz night at teenager's school.
There were lots of teams: about sixteen I think.
We had a great night. There were picture questions,cryptic anagrams, brain teasers and several rounds of questions with different themes: Science and Nature, Eighties Music, Money, Sport and so on.
The prizes for the winning team were a bottle of tequila, two bottle of ready mixed Margaritas, and a large chocolate easter egg from Thorntons. The theme was a mexican , hence the drinks.
AND WE WON....WE WON.... WE WON.... HURRAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
And I was a champion. While everyone else chowed through nachos, tortillas, chilli and rice, grated cheese and salad, washed down with copious quantities of wine..... I sat with my sparkling water. Yes... not one dodgy calorie passed these lips.
Now I hear you ask... how did you distribute the prizes? We have decided to have a Mexican celebration party when I am eating ( and drinking!!!!!!!!!!) again.....the six of us are going to cook and celebrate together. I can't wait.

"We are the champions, we are the champions,no time for losers, cos we are the champions of the world..............."

YOU are a champion in more than one way! These kinds of events are hard - but don't you feel great knowing you didn't cheat? So when will this celebration be happening?

I'm starting to think about what I'm going to eat on my hols..but know that in order to do that I have to be a little martyr for a few more weeks.

Congratulations on being a winner winner! I thought for one fleeting moment that Newcastle had won something!
