Re: FJs for the 5/13/13 week

:( :( :( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Clarke. No guess at all Tuesday or Wednesday, but I got both from Alex's comments on the clue after time was up. I thought of the May 35th meaning of 535 but dismissed it as nonsense (but something about the way Alex said it clicked). As for Schind...

Re: Thursday, May 16, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Ran Algebra, although my reaction to the $2000 clue was "Do you really expect me to do simultaneous equations in ten seconds?" ( No, Mister Bond. I expect you to die. ) and I panicked when Trevor was negged. 0/5 on Music. For the phoenix DD, my brain first went to South America, but then the fact th...

Prospero never occurred to me Tuesday. I said Benvolio.
I knew it was something like Batista, but couldn't pull out the name in time.
Attila... yeah, I should have known that.

I said "boot camp, or basic training."

I don't remember the exact clue, but I see no reason why Darth Sidious would be incorrect. It might have been negged then reversed, but it should have been acceptable.

"Old Man River" on Tuesday just to say anything.
No guess on the other two.

And yes, Border Patrol.

Re: FJs for the 4/22/13 week

:D :oops: :D :D :D :( :( :D Tuesday was both a knowledge and math fail. Guessed 12 provinces and thus 19 Mexican states. Of the two, I'm more embarrassed about the subtraction failure. I'm not sure how I got Wuthering Heights out of Friday's clue. I guessed it was Melville, or more accurately, "the ...

Re: FJs for the 4/8/13 week

* I remember watching the introduction to the Tony Awards when The Grapes of Wrath was nominated for (and won) Best Play. With my memory only being very, very vague, I assumed it was a revival. "Best Play" means it's not a revival. Revivals have their own categories, plays and musicals... Right. On...

:( :( :( :( :) :( :) :) Monday through Wednesday I had no clue. Random guesses were, in order: dada, The Grapes of Wrath*, and Edgar Allan Poe. Did not know Carroll was a mathematician. Thursday I guessed Santa Fe. Figured out what it was when Alex mentioned the Caribbean. Friday... yeah, what else ...

Re: Friday, April 12, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

This was a big confidence-restoring game for me. Every other game has left me staring at the screen throughout, but I ran at least 2 categories (G+3 and 1812, the latter thanks to a lucky "Name a Canadian city" guess), ran both partially revealed categories (running Bible Fill in wouldn't have surpr...

:D :( :D :( :D :( :D :D Instagets Monday and Wednesday. No idea Tuesday; guessed Ken Kesey (who's been dead considerably longer). Took longer than normal to find the correct response using Google/Wikipedia, too. Thursday "citrullus" led me to citrus and I guessed grapefruit. Friday my first thought ...

c) who the *&^&^^*&( makes a Vidal Sassoon joke at Gore Vidal? Sacha Baron Cohen apparently did, and it's mentioned in Vidal's Wikipedia article. That was what tipped me off to the correct answer after a "name a dead author" guess of Ken Kesey (I didn't think he'd died that long ago...) and about t...

Re: Wednesday, March 27, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Clammed on Cabrera because I knew it would (or should) require a BMS and I couldn't remember which was which. On the other hand, I guessed the right "epi-" word. Also guessed staccato for succinct; I marked it wrong because I wasn't happy with it as a guess and wasn't sure it was a "cc" word. Now th...

Re: Wednesday, March 20, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

So we now know they will accept "Bush the First" and "Bush Sr.' George HW. Interesting. I've often wondered about "Bush Sr." Also "Bush the Elder," which in light of those two would almost certainly be fine, and "Bush-41," which I still don't know about. Thought of Sarkozy on Final, guessed Poland....

Re: Monday, March 18, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

It looks like I can have a poll choice for only getting the Cline song in Women of Country or knew the $400 and not the $200 clue. I thought bridge, but wasn't familiar with the song and clammed. I did also get the $600, though. I've never heard of the song, but I figured, what else could it be but...
