Jeopardy

Post by JennyB » 08 Sep 2011, 12:01pm

I made it! I posted on Facebook earlier, but for the luddites like Dr. M, I wanted to post here too. So, this morning I get called into my supervisor's office. At first, I thought I was getting fired (you know, for all of those "doctor appointments" and "meetings" and "webinars" I've had recently). She told me that she had nominated me for a United Way Child Abuse Hero of the Year award, and that I won. So I followed her into the upstairs lobby where one of the local newscasters is sitting there with a cameraman. I didn't think anything of it since this particular newscaster is very involved in community programs -- in fact, I had met her before through Stray Rescue. Anyway, she starts asking me about CAPP and what we do, and then says, "Oh, by the way, you didn't get an award, you are going to be on Jeopardy!" She interviewed me and asked me what my worst category is (Poetry) and then quizzed me. I only got one out of the four right. So now I am off to buy Poetry for Dummies. The interview is going to be online next week, so I will post a link. I will also let you know when I am going to be on. I know I don't have a chance in hell of winning, but I am real excited to have this experience.
Got a Rake? Sure!

Great news and well done. I'm pretty sure you have a chance of winning, just remember us when you're famous.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

I'm trying to think of a way of incorporating you guys into my interview. Maybe I'll talk about this theory that We Built This City is rock's most subversive song.

Holy fuck, that's fantastic. A Jew on tv—who'd have thunk it. :kiss:

If there's anything I can do to help prep, do not hesitate for one second to ask.

This Yiddish phrase is used to express "congratulations" for a happy and significant occasion or event.

Woo hoo, Jenny! You'll do just great, I know it!

I'm expecting you to work in a Clash reference during your chit chat with Alex. :shifty:

Good luck! I'm very very jealous.
Godfrey was, by birthright, a stupendous badass, albeit in the somewhat narrow technical sense that he could trace his ancestry back up a long line of slightly less highly evolved stupendous badasses to that first self-replicating gizmo -- the most stupendous badass of all time. Everyone and everything that wasn't a stupendous badass was dead.

Yeah, you didn't abuse nearly enough children to win the United Way Child Abuse Hero of the Year award. Next year try harder.

Congrats on the other thing though. ;)

Every day in the quizword I do, there's always a bloody Greek mythology question. It's made-up shit FFS, stop asking me questions about imaginary people and events!

It's all basically Korngold. Trebek will pretend not to know what you're talking about, but I have no doubt that he knows.
