Re: Nightmare Categories

In my first game, I had Agriculture Hall of Fame. Did not see that one coming - as far as I know, it's never been used before or since. Luckily, nobody else was very good at it, either.

Re: Should the Teen Tournament Winner Get a TOC Invite?

Absolutely, yes. Amanda Goad was in my TOC and very nearly made the final. There's no good reason to exclude them that I can see.

and the series was based on the book The Fifteenth Pelican by Tere Rios. I'm a little bothered that I have perfectly good brain cells being used to remember those facts. I feel your pain.

I got as far as "Well it's not The Flying Nun, because that already came up..."
Bonus question: Where in the United States did The Flying Nun take place?

I can only say that my interactions with her have always been positive. I can only hope that this is all a big misunderstanding and that she did not do this.

It's always California, isn't it?
Kiwi, probably
Pomegranate? No, apple, no, pomegranate.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

That's right. My own surname has at least five variant spellings that I've come across. Sometimes you'll find names spelled two or three different ways in the same document. To track all of those down must have been a Dauntre , Dauntree , Dauntrees , Dauntrey , Dauntry , Daunting task. Yeah, and no...

One change of syllable stress is the only difference. Yep and Bullen was the original spelling. Boleyn wa...

Re: FJs for the 5/8/17 week

I was in Mendoza, Argentina and there were signs all over the place with arrows that said La Playa. Never did find the beach. No surprise since it's in the middle of the continent. Turns out that La Playa means parking lot. That's going to be the first chapter in my new book: Why I Don't Speak Spani...

Re: FJs for the 3/13/17 week

Ipanema here, too. I've been to Brazil, but not to Rio.

Got Dos Equis with about enough time to write XX, but gave myself credit for that.
