As you can see, this round of About a Boy is actually about a Girl, because we certainly can't neglect the fairer sex happy.gif.

1. She hates the way drivers never look at the road in old movies.
2. She has never gone a year without going abroad.
3. She plans on moving abroad as soon as she finishes Music College.
4. Her nickname with friends is Kitten.
5. Every couple of months she goes to London with friends and stays out in the city all night and catches the 7am train home.
6. At a party a few weeks ago, she successfully convinced a group of people that she was her friend’s French cousin.
7. She almost quit violin, but was a cathedral chorister which demanded that she play an instrument.
8. Her favourite city is Paris, she’s been 6 times.
9. She played her first complete violin concerto (3 movement work for violin soloist with an orchestra) at 13.
10. She is close to fluency in 4 languages.

Prizes

1st - 100k
Prize Pool - 250k

Like last time the requirement for the prize pool is 4/10.

You know the drill, send either myself or Kitsune a list 1-10 with True or False beside them, answers all True or all False will not count tongue.gif. We can assure you that that isn't the answer. You have one week to give it a go, contest will be closed next monday happy.gif.

Enjoy!

I thought she'd have said something if we'd have had it about her before tongue.gif. Oh well, we can do her again, she was an admin afterall, and we're running out of girls tongue.gif.

Okay!! It is Monday and time to shut the contest biggrin.gif. We've had lots of entries to this one, so thanks for that folks, good to know efforts don't go to waste smile.gif.

But! Without further adue (spelt that right? Doubt it) first place goes to! *drum roll*

Mumei!! smile1.gif

Mumei got the most right first with an amazing 7 out of 10 biggrin.gif. Black Flame also got 7 out of 10 but I'm afraid much later sad.gif.

Anyway! Those who qualify for the pot are:

Black Flame
Redlion
Jenna
Coolio
Flooble
Staple

So that's 100k for Mumei and 42k for each of you guys. PMs will be going out soon happy.gif.

Now, for those of you who are dying to find out the answers, here they are:

1. She hates the way drivers never look at the road in old movies. - False
2. She has never gone a year without going abroad. - True
3. She plans on moving abroad as soon as she finishes Music College. - False
4. Her nickname with friends is Kitten. - True
5. Every couple of months she goes to London with friends and stays out in the city all night and catches the 7am train home. - True
6. At a party a few weeks ago, she successfully convinced a group of people that she was her friend’s French cousin. -True
7. She almost quit violin, but was a cathedral chorister which demanded that she play an instrument. - True
8. Her favourite city is Paris, she’s been 6 times. - True
9. She played her first complete violin concerto (3 movement work for violin soloist with an orchestra) at 13. - False
10. She is close to fluency in 4 languages. - True

Funnily though there was only one person who got the first one right, everyone thought Ali got worked up by drivers in old movies tongue.gif.

As far as I'm aware you would have been able to enter this one, the answers weren't anywhere in the main contest area. You never asked! tongue.gif
