Re: HQ Trivia

I joined yesterday to try it out, and managed to get 4 questions before missing one at the 3 PM quiz. I have had two updates since 3 PM yesterday, the only time it worked. :-/ We enjoyed watching the train wreck at 11:45 PM last night with the non-functional quiz, but Rob fell asleep by 12:30 AM for...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

Congratulations to PatKav for her victory in A Magnolia, Peachbox for her promotion, Alietr for holding on and moving comfortably up the leader board, and my husband Boson for making a late season surge. I am looking forward to playing all of you, as well as Jfrumkin and Vermonter next season. Congr...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

Congrats to the ladies leading A Mag: patkav in first and cmp146 in 2nd. It was fun watching Cyndi struggle through the questions after two pints of beer and half a bottle of wine... Holidays play havoc on late night LL. Congrats to PatKav for getting to the top of A Magnolia! As for my performance...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

My very strange season in A Magnolia continues. After only three right, (golf course, Shawn Mendes, and Erewhon), I was ready for a loss. However, I managed a spectacular win thanks to my opponent having horrendous defense: 7(3) to 6(4). We also got to find a gem of a book at the elementary school b...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

I wrote "scull" and I don't know if it was accepted or not. I don't like to look at Friday's result when I sense it's bad until it's Monday and I have bigger problems. I considered Beverly Hillbillies but switched to the Flintstones, which really did feel like an inspiration. Also hadn't realized w...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

LL is a harsh mistress. I am 2 behind you in TCA, 2 behind you in TMP, my DE is 16 points higher, and I lead the rundle in 3-pointers. Yet you're in first, and I'm flirting with relegation. Yes, she is, and a strange one. Good luck in staying above the bar. I have finished dead middle (13th place) ...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

When I saw yesterday’s answers, I realized I had done a bad job of assigning points. I said to myself, man, I kinda hope PrussC just got them all right, so I can keep my high DE. Lucky(?) for me, she obliged. Congrats! Thank you, I was pleasantly surprised to see that three guesses were actually ri...

Re: LL BWA Entries

Card game?!? I put down "curse word" but I should have gone with my BWA attempt of "Black Sabbath song". I put down curse word and after seeing the answer was card game, I wondered if I would get a BWA even though I was serious about my answer. Today I saw 22% had curse word--did not expect that. I...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

I had a rare 4(4) to 2(2) victory in A Magnolia yesterday. I thought I was getting a 9(6), and then saw my errors: missing the last part of Studio 60 (I even forgot that there were more words until seeing the answer) and "Our American Friend" instead of Cousin. Oops.

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

It helps (for me at least) to remember that "epi-nephr-ine" and "ad-renal-ine" both basically mean "on top of the kidneys". Oh man, I never stopped to parse out epinephrine before, I just knew that they were the same thing. Yay science! I am thoroughly enjoying the battle in Rundle in the Jundle 5....

So LL going on hiatus is annoying, but going on hiatus for a holiday I don't get to celebrate is beyond annoying. Sigh.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Hey, we have a pumpkin pie for dessert tomorrow. Just no turkey because it is not a holiday in stupid Ontario. <american grumbling>

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

Thanks to woof for the reminder that it is time to roll out a new Rundle in the Jundle. If you are not already enrolled in a private rundle and want to play in one with your fellow boardies, this is just the place for you. Feel free to invite other folks as well. Here is the relevant information: R...

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

Did any other llamas notice how awesome the new-and-improved player tracker is for the minileagues? It is very sweet! I squeaked out 2 on the first day of Just Images Movies, and it was good enough for a 2(2)-0(0) win. Hopefully my luck holds for the rest of my matches. :-) I am sitting out the othe...

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

cmp146 inexplicably (to me, at least) gave me 3 points for the Charlie Brown question. Not only do I own a Charlie Brown t-shirt, but one of my favorite lines to express my displeasure with a situation is to say, "I got a rock." Sorry, Cyndi. <sigh> I am having a rough season defensively. If your f...

Re: MD10

Got a lucky tie against cmp146 yesterday – our first draw in six matches (she leads, 3-2). I shooed away my first instinct of Emmentaler and went with gruyere, but (rightly, I think) got 0 for it. Educated guess on surfboard for 3. Thought about giving the Canadian 3 for Alexander Stephens, but fig...
