Re: Hey, somebody has a new novel out!

Saw the Patterson/DuBois title on the bestseller list in Sunday's Arts section and was like 'Wait a minute...' Very cool, Brendan!

Never heard of Kaspar Hauser, but that's a story I want to read more about

Knowing the song did not, however, get me to that answer, but I did pull "Rocky Mountain High" and FJ.

Re: Jeopardy! article from Games Magazine (1987)

Hey all. Gonna pimp my blog for just a minute. I scanned a pair of old (more than 30 years) Games Magazine articles about Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune that people might be interested in. Have a look, won't you? https://theycallittrivia.blogspot.com/2019/04/wheel-of-fortune-and-jeopardy-articles.h...

The "halogen" clue definitely [ETA: did not ask ed --thanks for the corrections, all!] for a 6-letter word. Even counting that as a miss, I think I got 42.

Serious ennui upon coming into work, logging in to my computer and finding the LearnedLeague site down. What the heck am I going to do?

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Thanks to studying pop music and geography I'm having the best season of my life, with the highest TCA in my rundle by four points. Unfortunately, I'm also having atrocious luck, with the highest CAA in my rundle by two points. The result? I'm in 6th place and will have to do well to avoid being st...

Dates and audition cities are now posted for the 2019 Adult Test: https://www.jeopardy.com/be-on-j NYC is not on the list! Maybe it gets added later? Where y'all seeing this list of audition cities? I've been all over the site, logged in, searched for "audition cities"... nothing. Am I going blind?

By pure chance though, two of the clues that Brad uncovered were Daily Doubles. If you really think seeking and finding DDs is "pure chance," I'm not sure you've been watching this game... or maybe you're just hard of herring. Players like Alex Jacob, Roger Craig and Brad Rutter have turned picking...

Nobody else read cephalopod, thought of whales (I know, cetacean) and put ambergris? I was so confident too, though how melanin, generally a skin pigment, morphs into whatever sort of material ambergris is I didn't ponder long enough. Didn't affect the match but doesn't bode well for the full season...

Well, I managed a top 100 finish in the Confusing Lyrics one-day. Could have done a little better, even, but I'd have sworn Halley's Comet was on a seventy-SIX year schedule. Well, from what I know, it is, but it's probably not an exact 76-year schedule. It probably makes scoring far more complex, ...

Also, can a grammar person (which I am not) tell me which word is the preposition from Q6 yesterday?
