    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    They still allow the contestants to sit in the audience to watch the other games. But, remember, this was a Monday game, the first game to be filmed on this day. James' opponents will not have seen him play yet and will know nothing about his strategy. The opponents later in the week will have a better idea of how to play against James.

    What are... Jeopardy! experiences?

    A totally unrelated question . . . where did they put you all up? They recommended the Doubletree in Culver City, with a secondary recommendation of the Four Points Sheraton across the street. If you stayed in one of those, the bus would pick you up in the morning.

    Jeopardy! Test: Have You Taken It?

    '"Upon" and "without" are these parts of speech.' Total, thudding-heart blank. "Adjective? Adverb? What else is a part of speech?" Don't beat yourself up. It happens to all of us!

    Jeopardy! Test: Have You Taken It?

    I just finished the Wednesday test, and I think I got 35 right. I definitely had an attack of the stupids! I knew one answer was the capitol of Portugal, and couldn't come up with Lisbon. Argh! (And yes, I know that I can't be on the show again. But I like to stretch my brain from time to time, and the Jeopardy online test is a great way to do that!)

    What are... Jeopardy! experiences?

    After my experience was over, I had a definite letdown. It wasn't losing; it was realizing that I could never have this amazing experience again. It was marking something off my bucket list and knowing that I'm closer to the end of my life than to the beginning. Whoa! That got really dark really fast! I got over it after a few weeks, once I found other projects to work on. I suspect that if I were not retired, work would have distracted me much more quickly. Heck, I'm taking the Jeopardy online test this week, just for fun!

    What is...In the Media?

    "You want to tempt the wrath of whatever from high atop the thing?" "No." "Then go outside, turn around three times, and spit. What the hell is the matter with you?" I love the West Wing!

    You are going to have the experience of a lifetime! Since you're going early, spend some time wandering southern California. I highly recommend the Getty Museum.

    My first guess was something to do with seventh heaven, but then I saw "meteorological". Duh! It must be clouds . . . plate nine . . . cloud nine!

    I agree with everyone about the toddler-level category of Body Language, but I really, really liked the One T, Double T category. There's no way to prepare for it - you just have to have a expansive vocabulary and the ability to search it in milliseconds!
