Today: This isn’t Jeopardy!

It’s my living room.

This is me taking the online test to be a contestant on Jeopardy! a few weeks ago, with a head cold and skeleton-like hands.

Pew-pa-pew-pew-pew! Daily Double!

I figured if I put my hood up, none of my brain power could escape, and I’d be able to perform at my best.  I knew some of the answers (or in Jeopardy! speak, questions) straight away.  For others, I typed in random things like “Bette Davis eyes.”  Apparently, anyone who took the test (and actually knew what they were doing) may be contacted within a year for a second test, interview and practice Jeopardy! game.  In other words, I could be less than 12 months away from touching Alex Trebek.  Highly unlikely, but a nerd can dream.

He’s so Canadian.  I just love him.

In the meantime, I’m going to try and figure out how to Watsonize my brain.  Wish me luck.

Also On Tap for Today:

  • Some real gems from Red Sox Photo Day at Ft. Meyers
  • Recovering from a 14 hour workday on Wednesday (I like giving myself an ulcer for my birthday)
  • Busting out my brand new TRX (Thanks Nick!)

Have you ever taken the Jeopardy! test?  Are you a Watson hater or lover?
