  1. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Maurice, meet Catrice.

    Oh, yes. Big credit to Michael for being nicely dressed. He reminded me of a recent discussion I overheard about when people used to get dressed up to fly while now everyone pretty much wears pajamas. So I appreciated Michael's Old School properness. When showing dogs, even in the heat of outdoor summer shows, the unwritten code is if the judge is wearing a sport coat and tie, exhibitors should as well. If the judge takes off his jacket, then exhibitors may also remove theirs. I sort of hold Jeopardy and its contestants to the same code. Well, the male players anyway.

    I'm now an even bigger than gigantic Erik fan. He jumped to my top shelf when he asked Trebek, "Do you have a pie?" Unfortunately, Trebek ruined it by HAVING a pie ... that kept dripping over the side and onto the floor. WTHeck kind of pie is made of liquid? And so much WORD to Trebek stealing the interviews once again. Which no doubt contributed to $4,200 left on the board. But Good For You Erik for helping write a puzzle that made Trebek mad. There's another star I put by your name. Yes to the above, which maybe is why I kept thinking Erik being a professional clue writer makes him a formidable Jeopardy contestant. I'm crossing my fingers for ToC. And I am totally LOVING his hair. Très magnifique! So I was doing other things and didn't hear all the clues, but I did get moccasin (snakes are a specialty since I've had personal interaction with so many different kinds), John Travolta and Gene Autry, the "Singing Cowboy." I also got spider, and since did some research into the sort of spiders that can be found in bananas. Just ask; I'll be happy to share. My Girl Scout troop visited a grocery storage room where our guide told us about spiders and other creatures that come in their shipments. Yes, I remember being a GS! For the 5 & Dime clue, I answered Kresge's. I totally forgot about Woolworth's. I used to walk downtown as a kid to buy 45s at Woolworth's. They had a pet store in the basement where a spider monkey for sale peed on me through the bars of his cage. That might have started my dislike for all monkeys. I didn't have a clue in the world for FJ. I grabbed at Martha's Vineyard knowing it was wrong but at least it was an answer all you FJ Instaget smarty pants could make fun of.

    Wow. This qualifies me to type that much-over-used word: AWESOME. What a fantastic trip. And when you come back you will kick butt in those Jeopardy categories "Metropolis by the Acropolis" and "Athens Fashions." Can't wait! (Color me jealous.)
  5. Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    Have a most excellent trip. Where to, if I may ask? So I can travel vicariously with you. Meanwhile, safe travels, and your FJCS* can be updated when you return. *Final Jeopardy Contest Score Hey, a prize is a prize!

    LOL, you couldn't wait for Alan to be gone and your wish was granted. What, you have a monkey's paw or something? Ha ha!

    That's hysterical, a great story. When we were handling a bunch of dogs, we had a Papillon, pronounced pappy-yon. I started calling the dog a pa-PILL-yon as a joke around the kennel. Next dog show, I went to the ring to pick up the number for the Papillon and said, "I need pap-PILL-yon number 12." The ring steward gave me my armband without saying anything and I left, highly mortified after I realized my slip up. I stopped calling the dog that that very day. And yeah, I remember Zayre's. I'd call it ZAY-ree's in your honor if there were still one around. I guess it's good they're gone. I do. They are all Jeopardy categories.
  8. What is...In the Media?

    I'm watching the SNL rerun with Tom Hanks as host. They just played the Black Jeopardy skit. I about lost it when host Darnel Hayes (Kenan Thompson) gave contestant Doug (Tom Hanks) a Good For You. The link.
  9. Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    Yes, there was, because I was waiting for Trebek to say what INF stands for. This could be part of The Jeopardy Curse. If true, I want to volunteer to write some clues. I'll do it for free. In fact, I'll pay the show to let me write some curse clues.
  10. All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    Did anyone watch the Pizza Bomber episode Friday night? I kept doing other things so pretty much missed most of the narrative after the sequence of events was figured out so was hoping to get some insight here. (I guess I can google it, duh.) I do remember seeing the pizza guy with the bomb around his neck on the news though. Nightmare.
  11. Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    Congrats to all of you Perfect Five Week people! Maybe that will be another prize category, Most Fives in the Season. We've already got High, Low, Most Asterisks and Potluck (random number draw). Another prize category would be cool. "Yes, that's a great idea Saber!" said everyone nowhere.
  12. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    THIS. I guess I should take some solace in the fact they didn't go for the usual MLK - Malcolm X -Booker T Washington triple play but I don't. I didn't think that category was any easier or more difficult than other categories. Heck, if I can answer ANY Opera clue, much less run the category like I did the other day, the clues were simple, but I wouldn't call it offensive to opera lovers just because I could answer them. And I'm offended than anyone would find Friday's African-American category offensive. But I guess some posters get bent about Woman Author categories and find that offensive. So there's that. I only knew the Harriet Tubman answer because of an episode of Timeless. As I keep repeating, everything is EIYKI. And if you know it, it's Toddler Level. If you don't ... I'm not sure what that's called. I couldn't answer a single one of the music clues. What does that say about me? At least Erik gave it a wild stab guess. I also didn't know shoulder pads and wouldn't have guessed that answer in a bazillion years. Now I guess you guys know more about me than's comfortable.
  13. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I'm watching a travel show, they are in Lithuania. The local tour guide just said the river they are traveling is know for its pike and SAL-mon. I told you everything here is controversial lately.
  14. Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    WEEK 6 Final Jeopardy questions: 21. America in the 1930s. In March 1933 CBS Radio’s Robert Trout said, “The President wants to come into your home…for a little” this. 22. The Solar System. Features on this body include Tombaugh Regio & Sleipnir Fossa, named for a horse that carried Odin to the Underworld. 23. World Cities. The northernmost city with a population over 5 million, it was founded in 1703 & its name was changed 3 times in the 20th Century. 24. Characters in Children’s Lit. This winged character from an early 20th century work is so named “because she mends the pots and kettles.” 25. Sports. A low center of gravity is a key to success in this sport with moves including gaburi-yori & uwate-dashinage.

    Thanks @Bazinga for that info about Henry Ford's camping American Experience. I need to look that up online. AE is one of my favorite programs, but I currently only get two channels, NBC and ABC, so my tv viewing is limited. My depression deepened when I lost three PBS channels. But I'll bet you got that clue answered correctly. It was a great photo.
