Re: Your guess for Thursday's FJ [SPOILER]

Wavered between Gemini and Pisces, and went with Pisces because I could see fish on strings being a constellation, and also because I'm a Pisces (ish) and would rather be wrong guessing my own sign that missing my own sign.

Re: Friday, June 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought I was going to end up identifying the TOM (40th day of Easter Season = Ascension) and not getting the island name right because I'd never heard of it. But I went with Ascension Island rather than trying to puzzle out what it would be in Portuguese, and fortunately that was right. That is, ...

Re: Thursday, May 31, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I tried to make "fittingly" apply to "twenty."
I tried to make it apply to "2015."
Making it apply to "Euro" didn't cross my mind.
(I was playing off the Clue of the Day, so I didn't have the image, not that it would have helped.)
I guessed Hera.

Vauxhall Cross; no answer.

I considered Chicago but two Oscars is a pretty light haul for a Best Picture so I continued on west.

On the show, I might have been tempted to do something with my middle finger, but not at home.

The only 90s London landmarks I could think of were Vauxhall Cross and the London Eye, and the former at least has a roof.

Re: 5/3/18 FJ Poll [SPOILER!]

37, never seen it. I've seen clips (particularly, I remember watching AFI's "100 Years, 100 Quotes" where it was well represented), but I don't think that should count enough to say "parts, maybe."

Got the clue right, though.

Re: Monday, April 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had no idea who it was, and while I knew somewhere in the back of my mind that he was Attorney General, I said State as soon as Alex said who he was. (No idea if I'd have dredged it up on my own if I recognized him in the picture.) I had guessed Treasury to have something.

Rolling Stones; as soon as the music ended I realized it was the Beatles and immediately came up with the two songs, but by then it was too late.
I have not seen The Bodyguard, film or play.
