Re: FJs for the 4/1/13 week

: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 ...

Re: Tuesday, April 2, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

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...

:( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :( - Never seen Singin' and don't think of it as a musical. (The same is true for The Wizard of Oz , but I probably would have guessed that.) Guessed The Sound of Music . - Considered ISS briefly, thought of Mir, and decided it made more sense....

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: FJs for the 3/18/13 week

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :( :( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( Was thinking of Sarkozy Wednesday, realized he wasn't President anymore but had no idea who was. Guessed Poland. Thursday Wilde instantly came to mind although I struggled to come up with his name, and came up with it too late to consider anyone el...

I was on my schools' trivia teams in high school; I appeared on It's Academic in Washington D.C., where I embarrassed myself by getting Birmingham and Montgomery mixed up and saying that I was a sophom...

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...
