What am I supposed to say by way of introduction? Oh, yes.
How d'ye do? *shakes hands*
Strangely, I tend to find things out via Instagram. Even when global disasters happen, Instagram is like my evening news? [Sorta] So yesterday I found out from Cait @ Paper Fury's insta post [follow her insta; she's frabjous!] that there's a MAD HATTER DAY?! Why was I not informed of this sooner? Why is this not a national holiday or something?
Oh, in case you wondered, such a day happens to be today. The 6th of October [apparently Britain celebrates their madness on a different day]. You can read more about it here.
So I found some quizzes for you. Much fun. There's a which AiW character are you quiz. Most of the test-your-knowledge quizzes were very easy, but this one was excellent and I actually learned something.
To celebrate, I have a last minute link-up for you. Tag style. So let me throw some riddles at you, and I'll leave it open until the 19th of October. [Some of the references might be more obscure because. . . I've read the book too many times.]
