Today has already been a maelstrom of things. By that, I mean I got things in the mail that made me go all strom like. No, I don't know what a strom is either, but it sounds like something similar to my morning. A cheque made out to Tiernan Diouet was interesting, and then the strom was further fuelled by the DVLA telling me I'd sent an outdated licence to them and now have to send them my newer one with correct issue number or I'll lose my licence forever and go to court. I don't have a newer licence, have never been sent a newer licence and yet the sarcastic woman in Swansea insisted I had definitely definitely been sent it. She is not aware of how anal our filing system in our flat is and how all possible important driving things go in one special slightly broken cat haired covered folder. In that folder there is no such 'newer' licence and I am in firm belief the woman just needs £20 to go out on the town in Swansea and this is her way of scamming it from me. My slightly more worrying fear is that I will pay for it, send it off and it will return with my name as Tiernan Diouet on it.
After yesterdays strom about questions I thought I'd create a blogstrom about my T Quiz strom that I do on Twitter. Some of you who are frequent Twitterers will know about this, while others of you are still stuck in the past and don't know what a twitter is (idiots, strom). For the latter of you, I've been having much fun getting bored and deciding to hold impromptu quizzes on Twitter, known as the #TQuiz. These generally involve questions I've made up in my head with answers that barely relate. Recently the winners have been sent a CD of my old Edinburgh show, but before that no one got anything as they were very hard to win. I have had to change the rules slightly so that funniest answers win, but all questions must be given some sort of a reply for them to count. Anyway, yawny bits aside, I dug through my old #TQuiz attempts from a few months back and thought I'd post them all up here in a mega TQuiz. Only smarties have the answers. LIES. I have them too. They are at the bottom of the page for you cheaters. For those of you that have played it before, why not play with your eyes closed? Strom.
Note: There is no prize for these apart from the sheer joy it will bring your tiny lives. Sorry I meant chives. Tiny chives. Oh and last night's quiz isn't included.
