This. is. Jeopardy.
Yes, Friday is the big try-out for Jeopardy.
I have butterflies already.
I dreamt about it last night. I was spotting my competition from afar. We were in a garage. Goofy.
Just relax and have fun is what I am telling myself.
I am not studying. I am playing along with the television. Like I have done for over 20 years. I have won three out of the last five shows.
That's pretty good.
But here is the problem. Yesterday I won because I knew I didn't know anything about The Cabinet so I didn't bet. All of the other contestants bet big and lost. I did not bet and won. Lucky.
So if I am going to go anywhere with Jeopardy it will be dumb luck or providence.
And really I am fine with that.
I am not being modest and I am not fishing for compliments.
Two days ago there was a category called 'Edward Albee'.
After a few clues I figured out who he was....and yesterday there was a category all about treaties. Not a clue.
So bring on the easy stuff...popular culture...easy history...general knowledge...
Please No Spelling!!!
And the only Shakespeare questions I can answer are;
What is Romeo and Juliet?
What is Taming of the Shrew?
So we will see.
Do you think they will let me bring my camera into the try-out? I'll try.
Maybe I will look at the Almanac a little bit over the next two days.
Wish I had the "I'm blogging this" t-shirt just for this occasion.
Thanks for your good wishes and thank you so much for the encouraging words about Emma's essay.
Lynn, you made a very nice observation about the essay going from the inside of the house to the outdoors. Emma says it was not on purpose. But it is an interesting method and I think a great pointer for future essays.
Fluttering off to make pancakes...
