30 Days of Carol: Day 24 – The Carolhead Trivia Quiz

click for all 30 Days of Carol

Piggybacking off of yesterday’s Carol trivia post, we have for you the first ever Carolhead trivia quiz. Helping ease us into Trivia Meet-Ups Month, it’s the second quiz in the long line of Autostraddle quizzes that await you next month, and follows Riese’s “Total ‘90s Lesbian” quiz that bested us all. Joke’s now of her, though, because according to her, she got a whopping two right on this quiz. She may be the Ultimate 90’s Lesbian, but she’s got a ways to go as a Carolhead even though she’s “seen the movie” and “reads my posts.”

Maybe you’ll also falter. Or maybe you’ll breeze right through. Whatever the outcome, I’d love to hear about it in the comments. ~* stares from across the Oak Room with bated breath *~

  1. Quiz grade: E
    Score: 8
    Percentage: 53%
    Shame: infinite

    In my defence, though, during the 7945824.3 times I watched Carol (2015), I was profoundly distracted by Cate Blanchett’s mouth twitches and invitemerounds.

  2. Therese baby, wait under the tree for me,
    Be a little good girl,
    Therese baby, we’ll make love tonight

    Therese baby, I’ll wear my gloves too, of light blue,
    I’ll wait up for you, dear,
    Therese baby, we’ll make love tonight

    Think of all the fun we’ve missed,
    Think of all the times that we could’ve kissed,
    For me you better be good,
    Just let me bind your wrists

  3. Quiz Grade: A
    Score: 14
    Percentage: 93%

    Just missed that first question about the restaurant. Having read the book was was a big advantage, especially on the actress question, since Carrie Brownstein looks nothing like a glamorous 50s actress (reason #967 why she was miscast in the part).

  4. I can’t believe you made me take a test on my birthday. Luckily, I just happened to watch Carol again this morning to celebrate said birthday.

    Quiz Grade: A
    Score: 14
    Percentage: 93%

    The only one I missed was that Genevieve was an actress. What?! I said bartender.

    Another thing I did to celebrate was to go back and re-read your article where you dug a small ditch in your yard and laid face down in it because it is one of my favorite things.

  5. erin i got a 93% this time!

    (full disclosure to the class: i personally programmed this quiz [put all the questions and answers into the form plug-in since you need admin level wordpress permissions to make forms in wordpress] so it’s sort of sad that i didn’t get 100%, i literally had access to all the answers ahead of time)

    (when i was originally putting the questions in i only knew three of the answers)

  6. Aced it! (although I too guessed Genevieve’s profession). Loving Erin’s 30 Days of Carol and learning there are still some diehard Carolheads like me 2 years after the movie’s release. Thinking the correct answer to Question 3 should be Jeanette aka Jasmine.

  7. Commenting literal months late, but I am compelled, so here goes…

    Back in 2015, I was studying abroad in Tanzania and completely missed the release of Carol and Carol-fever, etc. Well, I FINALLY watched it this Pride weekend. I had remembered avoiding 30 Days of Carol since I hadn’t watched the film yet, so now it was time for me to go back. In the past couple of days, I have fully watched the movie twice, read almost all of the 30 Days of Carol posts and all of Erin’s other posts and Heather’s review, and watched press interviews on YouTube. This trip has been quite a ride.

    Thanks for your obsession, Erin, and I now present a score pretty worthy of the cramming I did:

    Quiz Grade: B
    Score: 13
    Percentage: 87%
