Environmental Science Group 22
Just Audio 2 Group 8
Style 3 Group 22

As a middle of the road D rundle player, these MLs are an interesting mix. I ended up playing A rundlers in all 3 matches yesterday. I just missed out a beer on JA2 as I couldn't remember Phil from the Amazing Race's last name, but got all the others in a 7(5)-3(2) win. In ES, I felt pretty good about getting 3 right but had a beer against me, and I also got 3 right in Style but bad DE cost me 2(3)-3(3)...

I've been wanting in on this for quite some time, but I don't know anyone well enough to get a recommendation. *shrug*

Style 3 MD3 - I was on the right track with the brown hooded cloak question but went with Yoda instead of Obi-Wan! Haha.

On MD3, I ended up getting 11 of the 18 questions correct. Not bad I thought... Looked at the results today and went 0-2-1 with 14 CAA. And...the tie was 9(6)-9(6) in JA2. I have over 0.750 DE in all 3 groups, but I'm also leading 2 of the 3 groups in CAA (ES and Style3, and neither is really close) and have 14 TCA and 13 CAA in JA2 which is essentially the most CAA. This leads to a collective record of 1-6-2 since I seem to either play A rundlers every day or any D/E person I play gets 5 right...Still having fun and learning things though.

Style 3 MD 8 - Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful! And why isn’t Alex Webb close enough??

Despite forfeiting the first match and questioning my right instincts along the way, I’m sitting pretty in 2nd place with a forfeit win on the horizon.

These things are always more fun when you’re winning :P

I'm playing all three MLs and the only one I have a chance to be a finalist in is JA2. I'm in 6th place, but second is only 2 points ahead of me and I play the people in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th to finish it off. I'm last in the ES one despite getting my fair share of correct answers and the Style ML has pretty much been a disaster for me.

Kind of frustrated that my opponent, a .765 career TV player, chose to only miss the 24 question, which I assigned a 0 to.

Me yesterday, doing the Just Audio ML:

Ah, dammit, I still haven't bothered to memorize which king was which. Time to take a stab.

Me yesterday, after submitting my answers:

Ah, double dammit, he was looking for her name, which I would have known.

Faced a 9(6), so it ultimately didn't matter.

I did write myself a mnemonic though, so I don't miss this again. Edward ate (eight) wedding cake.

Hope everyone shows up for my Clowns ODS on Wednesday :O)

And good news! I’ll be back on the ODS schedule next October with Curses. Seemed like a good follow up to Clowns ;)

I got the happy email too! In exactly 1 year, look out for Novelty Country Music 3, the sequel to two of my previous 1DSs.

Update: this quiz has been bumped up to Groundhog Day 2019. Much better, I always prefer earlier to later.

My first ever One Day proposal was accepted! Look for The Electric Chair in 2019.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.
