I don't know about you (although I have my suspicions) but I'm exhausted after AtoZ. And I didn't even make it through a tenth of the entrants! But I sure did have fun at those blogs I did frequent. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and made me laugh and smile with your comments about crazy 80s TV Shows.
Double thanks to those of you who played along with 80s TV trivia madness. I've got something for you:
1. The answers to the first 10 trivia questions (scroll over the black bar to reveal the answer).
2. An award! I've listed anyone who answered the question correctly---if you see your name listed, please help yourself to the award to the left.
Stay tuned, because I'll reveal the rest of the answers over two more posts---one later this week and the final one next Monday---and I just may have a special prize for the blogger with the most correct answers. (To be fair, I'll only count answers entered during April for the prize)
