I can vote again! While I was waiting to tape, I didn't dare do even that.

Watching trampolining makes me very anxious. The athletes are just WAY too high in the air for my fear of heights comfort level.

Re: The Rankest Thread Imaginable

Could I have the rank of Jeopardy Contestant, even if my show doesn't air until Sept 26?

Re: Boardies on the Show - Season 29

Hi Erin! So happy you started this thread--my air date is September 26. I'm so glad you and I were at the studio together this week, and that we're friends. Hugs! :D

Re: Friday, May 25, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

J round went so well for me that the DJ round was very humbling. I was totally shut out of the On the Air category. Ugh. At least FJ was just about instaget: what does the US rent? (something overseas, most likely), what happened in 1959 that our checks were no longer wanted? (something to do with c...

Absolutely no idea for Monday, but Tuesday I got lucky, Wednesday I mentally backed out of all the pizza place website ideas and went with Groupon, and Thursday and Friday were instagets.

I liked this week! :D

Re: Monday, April 2, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Got FJ on the last beat of the think music. I grew up loving cacciatore, hunter's sausage (available at DiPaulo's for those lucky enough to live in NYC) and as a kid I was very confused by the dish cacciatore, since I was convinced it HAD to be sausage. And the "Molly Hatchet" response had me rollin...

Re: Dallas Auditions

Joe, well done, well done! Did you have fun? What did you think of the questions on the 50 test? Without any specifics, of course, just your general impression. Did they give away the Wii game? What kind of turnout did you have in your session? Did you happen to notice anything about ages, professio...

Re: Dallas Auditions

Hey, waitaminute...! Was one of the college professors a UNT music professor (did he mention that he plays bassoon)? I'm taking a woodwind methods class, and my instructor had mentioned that he'd landed an in-person audition in Dallas and asked me for some tips, but he didn't say when the date was....

Great report! I audition tomorrow (March 28) in Dallas at 9am. Great advice, hope to see you on the show! Joe M. aka 456Diablo Best of luck to you! Here's a suggestion: the test room is kind of hard to find, so give yourself time to get there. I wandered around for a good twenty minutes and asked t...

Dallas Auditions

I was up in Dallas on Tuesday, March 27 for the 11:30 am audition. I asked everyone waiting in the hallway (there were 17 of us) but no one admitted being from the board here, and in fact a bunch of people said they had no idea that discussion boards for Jeopardy even existed. I was disappointed, si...

Re: Audition Emails

I got my follow-up informational email tonight, giving the name and location of the hotel in Dallas. I got the invitation last Friday, replied within 20 minutes (!), and received this one Wednesday evening. Tuesday night was the deadline for responding to email 1, so they sent the second one out ver...

Congrats Case and diablo! Early this time around... last time they were in Dallas it was in mid-May. *anxiously watching the inbox to see if I made the cut this year* Thanks! When I went four years ago it was in May, so I was surprised this year is March. Hope to see you there! Two Aggies on the sh...

Re: Audition Emails

Got an email today inviting me to the Dallas audition Tuesday March 27 at 11:30. I think I scored 40 or 41 on the Central Test (must check that thread, since I've forgotten exactly).

*it was 40.*

Re: Monday, February 27, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

For FJ, I was over in Hawaii at the USS Arizona memorial, drawn in by the "day" part of the clue. Sigh. And I had been so pleased that I went 25/0/5 in both rounds. Easy clues, I guess, unlike last Friday, when I found myself completely shut out in the Potpourri category.

Re: Tuesday, February 28, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wow, after yesterday's boards were so easy, today's had their brutal moments. Seemed like there were more TS too. FJ not quite an instaget but almost, so I was surprised that only one of the three contestants came up with it. Pressure of the lights, etc, I suppose. I did like Justin's comment and th...

Re: Monday, February 13, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

National Geographic's December issue had the KJV anniversary as its cover story, so today's FJ was an instaget for me. On the other hand, I clearly need to start reading EW because those pop culture clues just eat my lunch. And I remember reading the Faulkner short story in high school, but I couldn...

Re: Wednesday, February 1, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Interesting wink-and-nod signal by Charlie during the think music. I was thoroughly convinced the response was "almanac"--at least I'm in good company. Weston's "Give me" phrasing sounded just awful in the African-Americans category. Ugh!

Re: Introduce Yourself Here

I'm in school psychology (undergrad was education). I have many fanciful interests, but I'm just barely practical enough to not have chosen them as careers, though by working with children I get to integrate all kind of fun things into my job :) Good luck to both of us! Seriously! I worked on the W...
