The last few days, we've had a champion who strikes poses (I guess that's "character" these days) and it all seems so contrived and artificial. He's perfectly fine when he isn't trying to be a cartoon character.

I figured it was Lao Tzu, Confucius, or Buddha... and I went with Confucius.

I thought Axel Paulsen's name sounded familiar somewhere, and my guess of the axel etymology turned out to be correct.

I was playing my referrer the other day, and I know he's a sci-fi buff so I was able to give him 0 for the Hugo Awards question and squeak out a win.

Re: This just in! New season of Millionaire (2018) seeks contestants

So here’s how my Millionaire taping went today. Showed up at 8:30 AM for the contestant briefings, rehearsal, etc. At 3PM they bumped my entire group - plus one other holdover from yesterday (!!!) - to next week. Upside: I slept horribly last night and I was fading fast, and now I know how everythi...

Re: This just in! New season of Millionaire (2018) seeks contestants

It may be just as well anyway since I'm in the jury duty pool for September.
You're in a jury pool for an entire month?

Re: This just in! New season of Millionaire (2018) seeks contestants

I made it through both Skype interviews but looks like I didn't get the call this time. Oh well :) There’s still time! I auditioned this weekend at TCONA and the casting person told me, “We’re going to try and get you on this season so keep your schedule clear”, then they had me fill out all the pa...
