Re: POLL: A Hypothesis about Auditions

I think a better indicator would be go to an audition and see how many are local and how many are from far away. I seem to recall from my two that when they asked who came from the farthest away, not many people gave an answer. For what it's worth, twice I've been the person who traveled farthest f...

Re: POLL: A Hypothesis about Auditions

I have auditioned five times for the coordinators, though all occurred prior to 2013. I auditioned once near my home in Nashville, but that was following a Brain Bus mini-test. The four times I was invited after online testing, I was required to drive a minimum of three hours to the auditions — Port...

Whether or not Lisa's wager was "savvy," it's always good to see a J! player put real thought into his or her wager, not to mention demonstrate some decent math skills.

Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

Buttered Popcorn is the top Jelly Belly flavor (according to Candy Store dot com), knocking last year's winner (?!) Black Licorice (?!?!) down to second. I'm ambivalent about Buttered Popcorn; I've had worse...like Black Licorice. I must confess that a Buttered Popcorn Jelly Belly has never failed ...

Wow. That was significantly easier than the previous two nights' tests! I cruised to a 48.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), March 7, 2018

I thought this was tougher than the first night's test. Yet with some good guesses, I scored a 44, besting last night's official try in which I scored a 43.

St. Paul wrote "For now we see through" this "darkly; but then face to face" "Glass" was given as a correct answer. I said "mirror". Judges? Maybe it's because I"m more of a NIV person than a KJV person (although the rest of the quote doesn't match up in NIV), but I"m thinking of the title of one o...

For the "Think Different" clue, I wrote "Einstein" and then changed it to "Da Vinci," since that was Walter Isaacson's most recent biography. Oddly, I knew the clue was a reference to Apple Computers but forgot that Isaacson also wrote the Steve Jobs biography. But the mind can go in strange directi...

The rest of us on J!Board should collect our best omelette recipes in a cookbook and present it to TPH. At least then he'd be getting some protein, a couple of vitamins, and a few minerals to enjoy while watching J!

Re: FJs for the 2/5/18 week

IMHO, The Right Stuff is an outstanding film and would certainly have been a far better choice for Best Picture in 1983 than the wretchedly insincere and manipulative Terms of Endearment . Reminds me of this FJ from 2002 (the ToC, in fact, which is why I chose to link to the game rather than simply...

I simply neglected to change my status with the J!Board gatekeepers. I am surely no longer in the pool at this point.

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Through December 2012, I had been selected to audition for J! four out of the five times I was eligible. Since that time, I have scored 40+ on every online test I was eligible to take and have not been randomly chosen for a single audition, including Charlotte this year. Surely the odds must turn in...

Sue Grafton's latest Kinsey Millhone novel goes back to the old naming convention, Y is for Yesterday.
And there it ends. Grafton has died at 77 of cancer.

Grafton's sister, who announced her death, said, "The alphabet now ends at Y.”
