Re: ACM Awards category poll (9/16/20 spoilers)

Easy peasy for me since country is a lot of what I listen to. Not particularly a fan of Thomas Rhett, but I love his father. His best known hit from back in the day is probably "That Ain't My Truck," but my favorite is "Kiss My Country Ass."

Re: Thursday, September 17, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

A non-sympathetic "boo-hiss" to Joe for not making the cover wager that would have turned Beth's mistake from a $26k+ one to a $1k one.

I kind of hope they're not setting up Ken to be the next host.
I kind of think that's exactly what they're doing.

I said no on Delaware and the Pulitzer. I would get Delaware now but not then.
I marked yes for Delaware, but I, too, would not have gotten it back then. I would get it now only because I have been working in a law library for the past 15 years.

Re: Poll on Boardies Covid-19 Impact

Last week, I learned two of my nieces have had it - one is in her early 20s and one is in her 40s. Both had mild symptoms - fever, loss of taste and smell, not-too-bad cough. Then yesterday, I was informed that my stepmother has tested positive from where she lives in a memory care facility. Her son...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), January 30, 2020

Somewhere in the 42-45 range for me, depending on the judges’ generosity (Shallows, just Gregory, and Social Insurance). This one seemed pretty literature-heavy to me - 9/50 questions by my count (10 if you count Twilight) I actually did an analysis a few years back, and all of the tests I looked a...

I've been around TD's long enough to not get too annoyed when what I think is a really good answer turns out to be a (mega-)sheep. But "Marty Robbins".... really? Of course that was still better than the other "really good answer" I considered: Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra, who had a pretty big ...
