Besides answering some Trivial Pursuit questions from my mom today, and playing Jeopardy! on the Nintendo while I walked on the treadmill, I played 5 recent weekend episodes. I did consider playing them standing up to build my stamina, as was recommended my someone on the Jeopardy! message boards, but decided against it. After playing them in a row, I think it demanded stamina anyway.
Twice while I played I found myself saying to my mom, "Can you believe I answered that?" Things I never would've answered before studying for the Jeopardy! test in recent weeks. I came across two clues today (one on the Nintendo) that had to do with amendments: "What is the 22nd amendment?" and "What is bail?" (about the 8th amendment) I'm so proud, and I'm gonna keep it up.
Here are my Coryats:
originally 3-9-10: Shelby Sadler 13600 Becki Norris 3200 Vijay Balse 18200 Me 17600
(I see I played this game on my Jeopardy Challenger when it first aired.)
originally 3-11-10: Ryan Stander 16800 Leslie Sommer 7400 Cyd Musni 17000 Me 24200
(I blogged about this episode when it originally aired. It hit me when Cyd said, "Deo Volente" in response to a Daily Double. I remembered how that puzzled me at the time, and still kinda does.
I played the next three games on my Jeopardy Challenger, too, when they first aired.)
originally 3-23-10: Colin McClain 10200 Regina Robbins 18000 Kristian Zoerhoff 19200 Me 25800
originally 3-24-10: Derek Honore 16000 Tatiana Walton 11200 Regina Robbins 11600 Me 20400
originally 3-25-10: Sean Burns 11800 Susan Malmo 10400 Regina Robbins 10600 Me 18000
My Jeopardy! audition is Monday. And don't forget to watch Nicholas Condon on Jeopardy! that day!
