Where was the audition site when you went, Sarah? Downtown? Ren Cen? During hockey season, ideally? :)

(And at least 2 others from my TOC class. It would be interesting to see which auditions TOCers came from.)

Re: "Originally from..." - how does that work?

It will affect your hometown howdy. I opted to go with my current home, New York, since I've lived here a decade, rather than my "originally from..." in Texas. But when I was filling out the hometown howdy form, they didn't want anything that wasn't in the New York market, so colleges, high school,...

Re: "Originally from..." - how does that work?

When you're going over your information and your stories in the green room, they'll go over the pronunciation of your name and where you're from. That's the point where I said, "Actually, can I be 'originally from Ann Arbor' rather 'from than Iowa City'?" They had no problem with it.

Re: LL66 (For the LLamas)

I've never been as upset about not getting a BWA as I was today. How on *earth* was "names for new LL leagues" not considered for Q2? Thorsten has had a humourectomy If more than 2 people put the same answer he usually won't pick it for BWA, I think. I'm guessing that's what happened because that w...

I think I was thinking of beer like cars, where the make is Budweiser and the model is Light.

APPARENTLY BEER IS NOT CARS. Thanks a lot, brain.

Re: Zach Horan (legendneverdies) Banned

I had a similar experience to the one copied above where I went "Oh, a well-respected Jboarder is PMing me to congratulate me on my victory. The whole cigar thing is weird but maybe a cigar is just a cigar. That must be how things are done here." Once I saw his comments elsewhere and realized he was...

The autism reversal was weird (both in timing and in reasoning), and I'm sure Alex has done this before, but him crediting Jacob right on "Archer" for a moment was also a bit strange. Yeah, what happened there? One thing he said in that Howard Stern interview was that as he is getting older he slip...

I put "cameo" because I was sure there was a color called Cameo Red. Nope, it's pink.

Re: The unemployed on Jeopardy!

I played against a contestant who was unemployed and had applied to graduate school but hadn't received word of her acceptance yet. Robert encouraged her to list herself as a graduate student, and by the time the episode aired, she had not only been accepted but started classes! So it all worked out.

Re: Think Different 239: Back to Basics

I found The Hollow Crown an entertaining way to study up on a few of the history plays. It helped me keep the characters straight if I had famous actors' faces to match with them.

Thanks for the TD!!

I am grateful that the commish leniently accepted my response of "miracles" for the question about the cities known for apparitions of the Virgin Mary. (Granted, on J!

Re: Monday, March 16, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Did anyone else notice that the "impaled by a javelin" clue came up in last Thursday's Daytime J! (Thrown Of Games, $400)? I feel like there was a similar question in the 2014 Jeopardy! desk calendar too, because I could have sworn that was at least the third reference I'd seen. J-Archive has plent...
