D on’t know about you, but down here in my little world, it’s been a tough week. I’m sitting here on the couch, blogging and thanking my stars that Friday has finally come.

I thought I’d make a toast to the much-awaited weekend with this fun (supper easy) quiz.

It’s simple:

Tell me what these four familiar faces have in common. Click here for a clue.

All of a sudden, I’m not so certain you guys even know everyone in the group. So extra points for telling me the name of each person.

Go!

    They all have a Nobel Prize. I guess their names would be: Derek Walcott, Wole Soyinka, Toni Morrison and Alice Munro. Am I right?
