Re: Monday, January 11, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Had "Viva" translated in my head, but then drew a total blank. Couldn't get further than that. Wrote "La Bamba" just to have something written down. I should've written the minimal translation I had, since everything clicked when I saw Julia's incorrect response. Ken held his own really well I thoug...

Re: FJs for the 1/4/21 week

:( :mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( Wrote Don Quixote with maybe two seconds left, so I couldn't think of a secondary character. I can never remember Sancho Panza's name anyway, so it didn't really matter. Not into superhero movies, so I negged Wednesday with 1917. I feel pret...

What a run it's been; hosting over 8,000 episodes, inspiring and entertaining millions of viewers and becoming a cultural icon in the process. His life ended earlier than we would've liked, but what a life it was. Thank you for everything, Alex. The impact you've left will remain for a long time. It...

Re: Monday, January 4, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This FJ was also educational for me because I would have bet the farm that Don Quixote was 1500s, not 1600s. That's a good thing to fix. I initially wrote down Friday, then I thought of Don Quixote, but sat on it because I thought it was a 1500s novel as well. I decided it made more sense to change...

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :( :( :( :( Had a streak of 7 in a row broken when I said Hamlet for Thursday. I did consider Hallmark, but thought it wasn't that old, so I stuck with my original hunch of Sears. Bit on the Hudson and Ben Franklin baits. There's a show I'm binging online that I'm 5 ...

Re: Friday, December 18, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What, you figure all us flightless types are pals? Lat time I talked to a road runner was when ACME left a package on my front porch that was supposed to go somewhere else. But you got the last five words right, so... partial credit. "If I'd thought of the right response I'd have said". I'm pretty ...

Seen Holy Grail back in January, which in 2020 time, is 3 years ago. I liked it, but I prefer Life of Brian . My guess for the Jupiter clue didn't s...

Archive playthrough: Poll request on 100th day of the year = April 10th. I'm curious to see how many people had that at their fingertips.... Not on the fingertips but easy to suss out in time. First three months: 31+28+31=90, thus April 10. I negged with April 11th. I think I shortchanged January o...

Re: Monday, November 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I love Monty Python, but it still took me few seconds to get to the dates straight. I did get there though. Actually saw the movie for the first time on Netflix back in January, the weekend before Terry Jones died. And now that I think about it, I bought Alex Trebek's book the Friday before he passe...

Re: WWTBAM returns to primetime

Glad the Million was won for the first time in 17 Years, in the Stack of Questions way anyway, but ABC spoiled the Moment to hell. Not a fan of that. I watch the episodes online the day after up here in Canada and in the blurb for the episode, it says "one celebrity contestant wins $1 million for t...

I was surprised none of the contestants got Kennebunkport...but I suppose the younger contestants in the year 2040 might be rusty on Mar-a-Lago. I'm a 25 year-old Canadian and I got it. Probably my proudest get of the night. These boards felt like the easiest all week, but that might be just me. In...

Love that the Ryan Gosling doppelgänger got the Ryan Gosling Clue! Speaking of lookalikes, anyone else think Henry was the spitting image of Oscar Wilde? These past few shows, I've wondered at least once who he looked like, since I felt he resembled someone I couldn't think of. Seeing your comment ...

Spoilerizing as a precaution since I mention yesterday's game.
Spoiler
Don't know if it was intentional on the writers' part, but having today's FJ deal with Cats the day after the FJ dealt with dogs? I like it. :lol:

It's been 7 or 8 years since I've seen 2001, so the film isn't gonna help me. Had to go the route of airline bankruptcies, and I think 1991=Pan Am has come up enough times to stick, so instaget for me.

I'm working my way through yet another NYT crosswords book and literally this afternoon I did a puzzle where 36 across wanted a "Welsh word in a Pennsylvania college name" (It was BRYN they were looking for). If I don't do that puzzle today, I possibly would've missed that DD, since I can see myself...

Re: FJs for the 10/19/20 week

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Easy 5/5 week. Toughest one for me was the William Tell one, but even then, I got it with plenty of time. If the First Ladies clue was a FJ clue, I'd probably get it. But in the 10 seconds I had, I couldn't figure it out.
