So last week, I was on vacation in Nashville and having a beer while watching a band in one of the honky tonks. I feel my phone buzz so I pull it out of my purse and IT IS FREAKIN' JEOPARDY. I got the call! Incredibly excited.
Ah, you were the day after me! Best of luck!

Okay, so which of these many apps DO allow us Canadians to get in on the fun without the issues that HQ has?

Re: Adult tests March 6,7,8, teen test March 15

My audition was in July, so I'm skipping this online test and taking the next one, whenever it is. I wash out of the pool in January, so it will most likely be >18 months I've been quite discouraged about not getting the call, but now I'm somewhat heartened by the tales of all those called at the e...

Re: Geek Bowl 2018

If my mother had told me more than a couple of weeks ago that she was heading south for 6 weeks starting today, I could have arranged this. I thought I would be paying a visit to Toronto for the holiday weekend. :( Of course, that would require getting my passport - which I still haven't done (yes,...

Re: Adult tests March 6,7,8, teen test March 15

I LOVE rouquinne's blog entry as it brings back the memories of my snowpocalypse audition! It's usually just a 20-minute drive into downtown Chicago for us, but there were massive delays that morning. We had to take the unplowed side streets and crank up some pedal-to-the-metal classic rock in orde...

Re: Adult tests March 6,7,8, teen test March 15

I wonder if I can just sign up and take the test again for fun. Would I risk bumping someone from a legitimate audition slot? I hope not. Yes! Liz Fritz wrote the test for "fun" the same night I wrote the 2016 one. I know I bombed it and I felt way better when she said on Twitter that she was glad ...

Re: Adult tests March 6,7,8, teen test March 15

Cleveland and Detroit are about a 2 hour drive apart... weird to have auditions at both. They are both about the same distance from me. I think I'll pick Cleveland since I've never been there. Detroit was the day before my Toronto audition in 2013 - then again, that is about 4.5 hours apart not cou...

Re: Adult tests March 6,7,8, teen test March 15

So, my husband went to the J! site to check on his info, etc., and he did not find our major metropolitan area listed among the audition cities. Bummer, since I know they've been here multiple times in the last year. Looks like it'll be a day's drive if he's lucky enough to get an audition. Where d...

The Weather Channel is throwing shade at last night's contestants on Twitter this morning.

I was shouting the answer at the TV so loud, I was *sure* someone would get it! ;)

As someone else who speaks French with a Northern Ontario accent, I can assure you that our accent is regarded as quite lower class!
