Re: FJs for the 4/15/19 week

:( :( :mrgreen: :( :(
:( :mrgreen: :(

Clammed Monday, Siberia Tuesday, no guess on the other two.

Somehow twigged to "Finch" from "bird".

Re: Friday, April 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Same with David Bowie. you couldn't come up 3 british kings' names? i hate british bs and i even got it correct The names always blend together and I can't ever just go "pic...

Re: Friday, April 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

First half of the J! round felt kinda rough all around. Lots of negs and TSes. Ran Rock Animals and Novel Phrases. What was the TOM on that Empress clue? That could be from anywhere, and nothing in the clue or picture seemed to point anywhere. Couldn't get the first two phrases: NHO "rebel yell", an...

Re: Thursday, April 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"Charlotte" was right on the tip of my tongue, but it kept turning into "Charleston" which I knew wasn't quite right. Frustrating miss. I knew "The Flash" was a show, but I saw "fast" in the letters and couldn't switch out in time. My only miss in the category. I saw no way to figure out "quarter" i...

Re: Tuesday, April 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Big area in Russia 10,000 sq. mi. ==/== "big area" (The UP in MI is 16,000+ sq. mi.) It is if you have zero clue how big 10,000 square miles is. That could be the size of Mars, Minnesota, Monaco, or Merdian Mall. 100 miles*100 miles =10,000 square miles. But how long is 100 miles?! It could be any ...

Re: Wednesday, April 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This is probably the most effortless set of victories I've seen... ever. Judy Moody was my only miss in Kids' Books. What was the TOM for Grits = Carter? Any way to keep Chan/Lee straight? Bird... uh... uh... uh... ffffffffffiiiiiinch. Atticus Finch. That sounds like a character. Where the HELL did ...

Re: Tuesday, April 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

James made this look so easy. Shame Katie couldn't get on track. Had a closing shift and then went to see Trout Fishing in America today. Good children's music is so rare. I was talking to my mom today about how hawk cries are often used for eagles, so Behind the Scenes for $600 was an easy get. Ran...

Wow, I don't audit my Lach Trash, but I did remember stylus, and understand why nobody should know that now. Just two days after Record Store Day? I realize vinyl is still a bit of a niche thing, but LPs sales have increased dramatically in the last few years: https://www.statista.com/chart/7699/lp...

"Structure in Genesis" seemed like negbait for Noah's Ark.
"6 1/2-foot tall painting" was sufficient to nip any ambiguity about that in the bud.
Not necessarily. The Ark was huge too, and I could see someone making a really big painting of that.

Re: Monday, April 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

James continues to impress. Even if he misses an all-in DD, he can get right back up there. I clammed on "Key" because I didn't know it was part of a basketball court. We're in the Holy Week season, and I still blanked on Pontius Pilate. "Structure in Genesis" seemed like negbait for Noah's Ark. Par...

Re: Friday, April 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Didn't know there was a 2018 TV version of "Fahrenheit 451", so I immediately dismissed it and figured it had to be another Liederkranz. Why even guess when I'm absolutely positively unmistakably certain that I am wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong? Doesn't being so frequently wrong mean that sometimes ...

Re: FJs for the 4/8/19 week

Goose egg again.

I have eaten at a Howard Johnson's (Bay City, MI, which closed abruptly in spring 2005).

Did not guess that Monday was hinting at a specific movie.

Re: Friday, April 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought "Book of Mormon" was absolutely enormous negbait on "more recent sacred text compared to the Bible". NHO "City of lights" or "dynamic duo" referring specifically to Batman & Robin. I thought the latter was just a generic term. My best get was going with French + water + vowel = eau/O. Conv...

Re: Thursday, April 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was at Motor City Furry Con. Catching up now. Much tighter game, but James still went into FJ! with a lock. NHO "hung out a shingle" and didn't know that prisoners had "serial numbers" for two 4/5s. I like both puns, burgers, and Bob's Burgers , but couldn't make the leap from jingle bell to bell ...

Did anyone get the Misspelled clue for $200? I scanned that one six times and couldn't spot a single misspelling. They should've made it WAY more obvious in the top box.

I didn't know conch was an actual animal.

Re: Wednesday, April 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Even with a couple stumbles, he was still unstoppable. ==== I can never remember which is VT and which is NH, and just like "which planet is biggest", I can never find a way to keep them separated in my mind either. Even worse, that cost me the run. I've never heard it as "gave up the ghost" before ...
