Botticelli -- Round 2

Are you the British historian who once observed that “Perfect soldier, perfect gentleman never gave offence to anyone, not even the enemy.” when refering to Field Marshall Alexander?

No, I’m not A.J.P. Taylor.

Did you study the cello before you turned to conducting?

No, I’m not Arturo Toscanini.

Did you win “Best Supporting Actor” at the first Golden Globe awards?

There’s got to be a Hemmingway joke in there somewhere…

No, I’m not Akim Tamiroff.

Do you ski down the hill like a bomb?


I am Alberto Tomba!

You win, and you get to start the next round.

Yay! Unfortunately I don’t have time right now, I’ll start a new thread soon. I’ll have to practice frowning at my screen so it looks like I’m working while choosing my subject.

Good job, by the way. :slight_smile:

Is one of your main claims to fame someone else’s memoires?

Alas… Post #28.

Who were you thinking of?

I’ll start a new game:


Ask away.

Ah, so you aren’t Alice B. Toklas? Alas!

Do you catch Predators?

If you’re asking about CH, no… and I don’t know who you are.

CH: Did your brother give you the role of a flight controller?

Chris Hansen, Dateline NBC, wrote book To Catch a Predator: Protecting Your Kids from Online Enemies Already in Your Home.

Are you female?

CH indirect: Do you design expensive handbags?
