I wish I had! I went back to second guessing myself -- and of course all three second guesses were wrong, whereas my first reactions were correct. Got to remember my resolution!

I'm so far the strongest person in the Trivia competition today, well I am holding everyone else up.

It's important to remember that Sultan of Swing could sail in any time he wants and do it in 28 seconds or less pretty much at will, too.

All kudos to rebs for a great run in January, a well deserved win. The missed day is indeed annoying, but all my own fault.

I'll gladly take my three points.

Rete, could you just chalk me with 81 points for February please?

Oh, hang on, that implies that I'll remember to play for the rest of the month.

Oh come on, just kick the "t" out of "can't" ..... that leaves you "can'".
There's no "I" in team.. but there is an "m" and an "e"...
I goofed up today by missing one I've had wrong before.
Sometimes I run through some of these when I feel like it. They won't necessarily show up on our quiz, but I think some of them do. Jeopardy contestants must practice so I suppose we could do a bit... no harm in it.

One could open a second window and search the questions one doesn't know the answers for but I think that's sort of cheap/cheating or just low class. It's like people who look up the answers to crosswords in back of the book. I'd rather go back over and over for days and try to solve it myself, there's more satisfaction in doing it yourself.

OH NO!

The Kid has pulled ahead of me. He is the only one so far with 10 correct and is in 1st place. Check out the stars, folks, they appear to be in his house. He needs to buy a lottery ticket.
