  1. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I should have gotten Churchill. A few years ago I bought his books about WWII when they were on sale for Kindle. He was a very prolific writer - The books of Winston Churchill.

    Congrats to Alex again. We had two GFY. 🍹🍷 Like y'all I was extremely annoyed with the addition of "video clues of famous people" on top of the Gaddafi picture. Unfortunately, I'm so out of touch, that I only recognized Pink. I get Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera confused so I said Christina and I've never heard tell of that Shawn Mendes kid. (That's how he spells it? Not Sean? Damn, get off my lawn.) I got redwood, Mary Leakey (no one ever seems to know her 😢), and dear wife. I wracked my brain for FJ and just threw JFK out there, although I knew it was wrong. I was thinking of Profiles in Courage as the book.
  3. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Congrats to Alex! I would have been happy with Lee, too. See ya, Adam, you arrogant buzzer masher. Two GFY! Drink, drink! 🍹🍷 Tonight's famous person's picture - Emma Watson. Drink! 🍹 I got no TS. FJ was an instaget, basically because Moses was the only Biblical lawgiver I could think of.
  4. Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    Week 4 - a lousy 1 out of 5. Boo hiss.
  5. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Last night's joy was short lived. Another day, another annoying champ flailing the buzzer and randomly picking clues in the middle for no good reason. Plus, he should have not gotten credit for Blue Danube. It's The Blue Danube Waltz. Putz. I got no TS and was a slack-jawed moron for FJ. I've never heard of D Day being called the Cossack Plan. The Russians planned it?
  6. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I love Sara! She's nice, normal, smart, and a gutsy wagerer. I so want to see the musical version of Silence of the Lambs. Plus, she got rid of Doug, whose pandering for a boyfriend on a TV game show grossed me out. I was surprised Kian had so much money going into FJ since I only remember him as "guy wildly waving his buzzer, staring at it when he didn't ring in, and pointing at the board if he did". Oh! And he got a GFY. Drink! 🍹 The pictures of Hubert Humphrey and George Wallace were as bad as yesterday's Khrushchev photo. Gimme a break, writers. I got Raymond Chandler, Brains, Coty, and doddering. FJ was an instaget! Yay! I'm having another drink! 🍹
  7. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I almost turned off the game. Doug the Eunuch (I'm talking about his singing parts written for castrated males, not him personally) can't get off my screen soon enough. I loved Susan's jacket. I got decoy, The Walking Dead, The Thing, veneer, and bundling. For FJ I guessed Zurich. At least I was in the correct country. It was Seth Meyers. I forgot to mention it, although I laughed and thought of y'all when he said Trebek liked to "fancify" words.
  8. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    What a craptastic game! Doug has decided he's Austin 2.0, I got no TS, and for FJ I confidently answered Daniel Day-Lewis. Boo hiss! Oh, wait! Maybe Doug the Douche is a hyphenate. He's an Austin-Buzzy.
  9. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Didn't like any of the contestants tonight. I thought the identical twin clue was perfectly clear. I call BS on giving Doug credit for fraternal. I got Taft and identical (DD). I was totally clueless for FJ and didn't even guess.
  10. Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    Week 3 - 4 of 5!
  11. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Congrats to Andrew, although I had really warmed up to Evelyn. Here's something I've never understood - a contestant starts a category, someone else answers and moves on to another category or it's a TS. Contestant 1 keeps going back to/sticks with that same category but never answers correctly or at all. Just think that's odd. A picture of ravioli? Really? I got fire extinguisher, microwave, and John Irving. FJ was an instaget. I have to say, I've seen the movie several times, and Alex's stupid accent almost ruined it for me. I thought, "I don't remember Don Corleone doing a Dracula impersonation in that scene". Knock it off, Alex, you got to say genre earlier in the game. That should have been your cheap thrill for the day.
  12. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Damned Thursday Night football! And then the local affiliate was supposed to air Jeopardy! at 2:00 am, I stayed up (a perk of being retired is sleeping late 😳) only to be accosted by an episode of Divorce Court. WTF?! It took me forever to find it on You Tube today. Congrats to Evelyn. I'm sorry I called her a Dashboard Dog. She seemed to have knocked off the nodding and she is ten thousand times better than her rivals. Katie!'s signature and her hunched over/leaning bugged me. But nothing was as bad as Michael's proposal. Blech! I wish his girlfriend had said, "What's never in a million years?" Plus, I hated that he said ladybird (which I've only ever heard ladybugs called on Jeopardy!) and that they gave him credit for stagecoach after Evelyn said it. In fact, they shouldn't have let anyone else answer that clue after she answered it correctly, but too late, right after Alex screamed, "NO!" I got electricity (DD), Iraq, Monday Night Football, astronaut, and Mobile. FJ was an instaget.
  13. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Why, thank you! I missed all of my Jeopardy! pals, too. 😀 I'm not sure. While she was indeed a Queen Dowager, she never styled herself that way. I suppose it would depend upon if Alex took a shine to you and how much the judges had been smoking/drinking and if you protested loud enough. I found this: "Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother chose to use this style for several reasons: On the death of her husband, George, there were two Queen Elizabeths. As a widowed Queen Consort, she could have chosen to have been styled Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth - however this would have caused confusion Queen Mary, the wife of George V was still alive at the time of the death of George VI - and whilst she didn’t style herself as such, she was still entitled to the title Queen Dowager (whilst George VI was alive, Mary had also been entitled to the style Queen Mother, but chose not to style herself this way either). Given the unusual situation of having two Queen Elizabeths and two Queen Dowagers, usage of the style Queen Mother made a lot of sense."
  14. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Egads! It's Evelyn the Nodding Dashboard Dog. When Jordon said his kid was learning three languages, Alex said, "and Chinese, we know why". No, Alex, we don't know why. One of Jordon's 14 last names appeared to be Chinese but he didn't look Asian at all. Was he adopted? Is he a hipster married to a Chinese woman and he took her last name or what? I got Zebra (crossing), and I was screaming Monterey but no one heard me. FJ was an instaget.
  15. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Nancy's growing on me. She got rid of Vincent the Whiner. GFY! 🍹 I liked Courtney, too. To refresh your memories: http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/tv/ct-ent-jeopardy-vincent-valenzuela-20180716-story.html I got Charlotte and Zion National Park. Yay! I got FJ!
