Fun:**** (3.28)
Difficulty:** (1.34)



It's time to get back at the Queen of Hearts by beheading words that start with "Qu". In this case, you remove the first TWO letters and still have a valid word. You will be given clues for the two words, longer word first.
Example: British pound -> Part of the psyche
Answer: The words are Quid and Id.

1. Stop doing -> That thing
2. Peculiar behaviour -> Annoy
3. Subatomic particle -> Large boat
4. Unit of liquid measure -> Product of creativity
5. Small game bird -> To be unwell
6. Large feather; pen -> Unwell; faulty
7. Nausea; uncomfortable -> Simple
8. Misgivings; scruples -> Donations to the poor

Very easy, I only had a little trouble with # 8, but by working backwards I got that one too. Fun one. :lol: :D

When I finally figured out what I was supposed to do, I got them all, but 1/2 of number 3. Good one! :)

Loved the fact you had Quirks and Quarks one after the other. It amused me.

Posted by Maggiethe8th06/13/13
missed two :oops: , but had fun! thanks!

Posted by thecatladycac06/17/13
Got them all fairly quickly this time. (Could have used "Quick" and "Ick" - that just came to me). I enjoy these very much, even though I occasionally find them easy! :D :lol: :D
