Well, as some of you might know, I have received the call from the trivia mothership, and I am being called home to report for duty on Jeopardy!
When I was a younger squid I was a trivia maven. Captain of my school's College Bowl team. Took the team to nationals with a group of three girls and one guy. Believe me when I say that College Bowl tends to be devoid of women. But I digress...
I am so not on my 'game' trivia-wise, but I'm going to make the best of it. Have fun, hopefully not shame myself. Filming is on the 12th and 13th of February. Air date will be at some point closer to the summer.
I'm reviewing all the usual trivia garbage that one should have in medium-term memory, but for the most part I'm trying to stay calm. I'm used to using a buzzer and being recognized before I can answer. I will need to remember to phrase things in the form of a question. I will need to quit periodically whinging at my husband things like "The show comes on at 4:30 PM, I haven't watched it regularly in over 10 years. I am so hosed." The last time I said that he asked me who popularized the phrase "Take off, hoser". Well, as far as I know it was Bob and Doug McKenzie. Which means that I might be qualified for this thing after all.
Now, off to study!
