Re: Friday, January 26, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Same here. I don't know anything about Pippi except that she exists and is Scandinavian, but I guessed that the last middle name was a translation of "Efraimsdotter" (sp?). I also would have thought she was older than 1945, but no alternative presented itself, so that was what I went with. That's h...

Re: TD 365 - clt013 (Q1-Q3 revealed)

Aarggh! I wasn't paying much attention when I opened this thread, and I thought I was in the TD364 thread. I thought, oh well, two more sheep to add to the pile, but then I realized it was the first two questions of TD365. I barely finished out of last place in that TD, so let's hope I can do it aga...

Matchy-matchy was a favourite catch-phrase used by Stacy London and Clinton Kelly on "What Not to Wear".

:lol:
A-ha! That's where I've heard it. It didn't ring any bells for me though in the context of the clue because that's not what I thought Stacy and Clinton's usage of matchy-matchy meant.

Sorry to cause you extra work with my wrong answer. I guess Bonnie Tyler and Kim Carnes sound similar to me.

Re: TD 364 - 2017 in Review - Q1 revealed

well, since a correct answer on my part would have resulted in my getting 9 points, I suppose I should be happy that it only cost me 3 points.

Re: TD 363 - FINAL STANDINGS

Boy, I can't believe I ended up in 5th. I stopped looking at the standings when I sheeped 7 and 8.

Thanks for the TD!

Re: TD 363 - Q8 RESULTS POSTED

Indeed I did sheep on both questions 7 & 8. I thought that I might know Rorshach/Horschack, as I was sure of Horschack, but I only thought that the black blobs on the character's face were possibly ink blots (I've never heard of the character). I decided to go with the only answer that I knew for su...

Re: TD 363 - Q7 RESULTS POSTED

Excited to see the results from Q8, my answer was literally the only one I could come up with. Same. I hope this doesn't foreshadow a mega-sheep. I didn't enter this game, but I'm predicting that "drop" and "sheep" will be the runaway winners on this question, with the "sheep" option coming out wit...

I thought it was 16 men. I've always heard (or misheard, I suppose) 16 men. Just learned today that it's 15 and not 16.

Yesterday I knew Travis reminded me of someone, but I just couldn't place it. Today it hit me that he has many of the mannerisms of the Hank Kimball character from Green Acres.

Re: TD 362 - Mixed Bag - Scores through Q8

there must be a lot of sports fans in the TD because I mostly went with the sports answers, and I think they've all been sheep.

Re: Thursday, December 28, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Boy that word within a word category took a long time to explain, and it took me 3 clues before I finally got it. I don't usually do well on word-play clues anyway.

I guess correctly for FJ just based on WECIB. Wasn't really sure, and I only knew topaz, and not the other two items.

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

I go into the off-season on a great note. I tied my opponent with a 6(3)-6(5) score. I don't know if I've ever tied with 2 fewer questions correct than my opponent, and usually I'm on the wrong end when it comes to defensive scoring. I also got lucky because Sports is one of my wheelhouses but he di...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

So are we cheering on any boardiellamas to win their rundle or stave off relegation on this last match day? I don’t know if anyone would be inclined to cheer for me but after having spent so many seasons in D I was elated to go to C this season because I always felt I belong in C. However I’m curre...

After starting out 0-5, I'm at 10-13-1 which means that even if I lose today, I'm still not in the relegation zone.

The state of Florida is about 500 miles from north to south. Michigan is about 400 miles. Also the clue said "a peninsula" and Michigan is two peninsulas.
