Welcome, Kara! Your screen name is a palindrome, so let me ask you a palindromic question: "Was it a cat I saw?" I mean: Is that item on the right side of your avatar the top of a cat's head, with its nose pointing toward the clock?

Re: Your Screenname: What inspired it?

My grandmothers both have the first name Mary. Since I already had a cousin Mary (named for them) when I was born, my parents gave me my grandmothers' middle names Joy and Opal as my first name and middle name, respectively. Is Mary your double-cousin? Or was there a third grandmother named Mary in...

Re: Your Screenname: What inspired it?

Joy is both my first name and my initials. (And yes, my parents were fully aware of this when they named me.) For displaying my name/initials, I have a whole bunch of avatar photos to choose from. "Joy" appears a lot -- especially around Christmas -- on gift wrap, Christmas cards, ornaments, and oth...

Re: Wagering Strategy: Anyone Else Bored Stiff?

The problem with wagering on the FJ category is that sometimes a clue in a seemingly esoteric sounding category turns out to be relatively simple with a TOM that gives it away. Alternatively, sometimes a straightforward category has a weird unexpected clue in it. My favorite example in the latter c...

I got FJ after thinking about it for about 5 seconds.
Julie was tremendous in her first game but quite a disappointment in her second. I thought she had the potential to win several games. FJ was instaget for me.

Re: Friday, January 31, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

This was my best game ever: 47 clues correct (but I've only been tracking the games for a year). I instantly got FJ because I've heard this safety-brake story very recently (within the last month) and also I've ridden in numerous Otis elevators.

That makes sense. Both songs are on this 1973 compilation CD I bought years ago and are really similar to the point of being tough to tell apart until people start singing. TDN typically didn't write their own songs, or at least not their own hits. "Mama Told Me Not To Come" is by Randy Newman. "Jo...

I've been a Jeopardy! watcher for only about a year now. I live in the U.S. but I've spent about half my life in Canada. That's why I hope to enter TD 1...
