Re: LL67 (For the LLamas Among Us)

Probably no one has responded because the deadline for new referrals passed several weeks ago and this season's schedule is set, dot. We can't refer anybody else until this season is over and we're registered for the next season (in February). I'm sure someone will step up for next season.

I didn't realize they don't do this anymore! I guess my mind has just been automatically filling it in.

Re: Familiar face on Millionaire

I'll let ElendilPickle announce her airdate, but also appearing next week is Justin Peters, who some might remember from this article: http://www.slate.com/articles/arts/cult ... royed.html

Greek only has one word for both turtle and tortoise, χελώνα (chelone). Looking this up, I also discovered Chelone is the Greek goddess of lateness.

Re: Friday, October 23, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

If you watch the film, "not gonna be ignored" is a throwaway line, one that appears only in the middle of a long dialog and evaporates quickly. It's not a scene-stopper or a revelation. Yet, it has become popular fodder on the show: I've never seen the movie, but I see that line quoted everywhere i...

Since Alex knows the clues beforehand, I always thought that he chose a story related to that if possible from the interview choices, just to come up with those serendipitous connections.

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

That sounds very promising, confidanon. Did anyone else who did the college online test and chose Chicago as their audition city get an email on 10/12 about which city they'd prefer to go to instead? And have they received a response back from that yet? The e-mail said that it does not guarantee a p...

Re: Matt Jackson: A Profile

Thanks for sticking up for your friend, hurone. I loved seeing Matt geeking out on his public facebook page to Lin-Manuel Miranda praising him on twitter. I'm used to seeing people running down all the contestants on twitter, and I tell myself that they really don't expect that the contestants will ...

After looking it up, there are, what 25 Shakespeare moons and two Pope moons? That's really fair. I suppose Pope should feel honored he took two away from the bard. Lol. Why bother? Three moons are named after characters in The Rape of the Lock : Belinda, Umbriel, and Ariel. I guess Ariel could be ...

Re: Online Test/Eligibility Questions

The use in taking the test is if you get an audition you mention WOF at that point in time and the worst that happens is TPTB say you're not eligible. And then they ban you for the rest of your life for wasting their time. :shock: When I got an audition invite to Jeopardy it had not yet been a year...

Re: Online Test/Eligibility Questions

1. Take the test! The expected time commitment to do it is small, and if nothing else it will prepare you for future tests. 2. Yes, you can take both. The time frame rule for both Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune is you cannot have been on another game show within the past year, and at least for WoF no...

That was just a car crash for Alan in Double Jeopardy, negging all over the place. Matt will be up on the TOC tracker after tonight's game, knocking Darren off, but I wouldn't count chickens unless he wins tomorrow.
