ULTIMATE BONNIE HUNT QUIZ!
Now, I'm not a Bonnie Hunt expert even though I've enjoyed her so much over the years. The answers to these questions can easily be found in an Internet search.

The deadline for entries will be a week from today -- Wednesday, October 8, 2008 at midnight. I will contact the winner for details, so please don't leave any personally identifying information here on the blog. The prize will be awarded by M80, a PR firm out of Los Angeles.
Please do NOT post the answers here in the blog comments -- email them to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject header of Bonnie Hunt Contest so I can watch for them.
