Oh my gosh…I just signed up to take the online test to be a contestant on Jeopardy!! I’ve watched that show for years…always thought I could be a contestant, maybe better than about half of the contestants that make it onto the show. While watching tonight, Alex mentioned the upcoming online test and I rushed right over to my computer and logged on, completed the registration process and now…who knows? Will I be the next Ken Jennings? Yeah, probably not…that guy was awesome! But anyhow…I think it’s kind of exciting.
While reading about the test, I found out that you have 50 questions with 15 seconds allowed for each question…simple, right? Well…I suppose it depends on the categories. On tonight’s show, I had no clue about any of the music questions and I’m usually pretty good with those. Movies? Not so much. History, politics, spelling, grammar, science…yeah, I like those categories. Sports? Maybe, depends…if it’s, you know, yachting or cricket, I’d be sunk…basketball, football, I’d have a chance.
Am I going to study? Nah…never did a lot of studying even when I was in school…got a brain like a steel trap…might be a little rusty now though. But I guarantee I’d do some major studying if I happened to be lucky enough to be chosen as a contestant.
Anyhow, just wanted to share my exciting news…do, do, do, do, do, do, do…admit it, you were humming along there!
