Re: Hi - new ER

Isn't this fun?

Plenty of clues and some good reasoning (yes, loads of attitude in my screen name) BUT, according to DW the game is played by you asking me simple questions and my giving Yes/No answers.

I think you have 18 left.

FM,

3. Did your DW register for her account before 10/1/2004?
4. Does your DW's screen name start with a letter from a to m?

5. No

You know I'll get the first letter in a couple more questions. But I'll be a sport and stop that line of questioning.

You didn't respond to Martha's question - is your DW JJ?
