Re: Friday, July 6, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought the clue might've hinted towards wanting a business known by initials, so I tried to go down that avenue and said CVS. No way I was getting to QVC.

Lauren had an impressive debut. Can't wait to see how she does when she returns Monday.

Re: Monday, June 25, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I started by thinking of islands instead. When that proved fruitless, I frantically went down the East Coast and said Florida just for the sake of putting something down. No lie, that's exactly how FJ played out for me as well. Although, I did try to focus on the Northeast instead of the entire Eas...

Got everything, extra clues included, except "Surprise Symphony," which I had never heard of prior to Wednesday. I said "The Magic Flute."

It's been a few years, but I have seen Vertigo.

I took the online test for the first time on March 7th. I got an email about 10:30 last night inviting me to the New York City audition on April 25th. Looking forward to the experience!
Today I got THE CALL!
Congratulations! Do Atlantic Canada proud!
Seconded!

Winnie the Pooh saved me from clicking the box of shame this week.

I knew the "Portugal, The Man" category was referencing something, but I didn't know what exactly.

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

I thought the "fittingly" applied to "20" in the 20 note Euro so I was trying to come up with what would be 20 in Greek and are we really supposed to know that, along the lines of penta = 5, deca = 10, etc. I did that too. I knew vingt and venti are the French and Italian words for twenty, so I tri...

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

I'm 23 and have yet to see the movie in question. I enjoy sampling films deemed all-time classics,but Casablanca has not been one of them so far.
It's been a goal of mine for a while now to try and see all the Best Picture winners and/or the AFI's Top 100, so I'll probably get around to it one day.

Re: Wednesday, May 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I don't know why, but I can never remember who won the famous duel between Hamilton and Burr (maybe it'd help if I saw the musical, but I don't think that's happening anytime soon). Luckily, I managed to get FJ right after I convinced myself that I've heard the name Theodosia somewhere in relation t...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Pointer, what a coincidence - I’m also going from Newfoundland to NYC! I’m in the April 25 audition group, though. This is an interesting coincidence - I’m coming down from Halifax! Perhaps they’ve decided that Atlantic Canada is a major untapped resource! Hey, I'm from P.E.I. and... well I'm not a...

I missed tonight's FJ to make myself 0/4 so far this week but I got the tiebreaker clue. If I miss tomorrow's clue, it will be an interesting scenario when the weekly poll arrives.

Count me in with those who said shogun on Thursday. I know what a pram is, but I didn't know it came from "perambulator."

The Beverly Hillbillies is waaaaay before my time, so I haven't ever seen an episode.

The arctic tern made me think of Colin Mochrie. :lol: You're not the only one. :D I got FJ fairly quickly. I tried thinking of novels with mythology-themed titles and Ulysses managed to pop into my head pretty quickly. From there I made it to Daedalus. I'm liking Ryan so far, he seems to have a ver...

Re: Friday, December 8, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I was spoiled on the FJ clue thanks to Jeopardy's Twitter page. I feel confident I would've gotten it, but I think I'll have to leave the appropriate box unchecked. :x
