When I went 2/5 the first week and 3/5 the second week, I figured I was working my way up and would go 5/5 this week, but I've been stuck at 3/5 each week since.

I feel it was in me to get Wednesday's and Friday's, but it just didn't happen at the moments when I encountered them.

Got Bowling Green and Ball State confused and said Indiana. I clearly need some more MACtion in my life.

I also forgot what category we were in (multitasking watching Jeopardy and wrangling a toddler is hard) and said history for Clio.

Living in Kentucky gave me the edge on the Bowling Green question, since the Kentucky school's nickname is the Hilltoppers.
Never heard of "Pirate's Booty" snacks.

How often, if at all, do you go to Costco? I always see Pirate’s Booty there. No way I would have ever gotten it otherwise.

We have a membership but my wife does the shopping. All I get at Costco is gasoline.

I may have slumdogged Friday's FJ - I just started reading Husain Haddawy's translation last week, and the introduction goes into a lot of detail on the origins and various translations of the stories. Can't say for sure if I would have guessed it right otherwise.
