Got everything but Monday and that miss is embarrassing. For some reason I had it in my head that Bush Sr. was #40. I know Obama is 44, so I could have easily counted back, but didn't think I had to. :oops:

Wasn't the clue about a play? There is no way to confuse My Fair Lady with the play.

And somehow, I found one... Sorry Brian.

Is there a J! convention that musical stage plays are always referred to as "musicals" rather than "plays"?
I noticed that Wikipedia (ouch!) makes the distinction.

...but the senator, while insisting he was not intoxicated, could not explain his nudity.

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

First 5/5 since I've been following these end-of-week threads. Maybe its because I'm a teacher and its teachers week?

Looks like I picked a wrong Friday to have a Final J brain freeze. That short list of "I picked Scotland" or Greece sticks out.

A tough FJ week for me, with algebra, bear, and just blanking on the right name for World Heritage - and yes, I know I've seen it on J! a hundred times, most recently on 1/28...
