Thanks! I got the necklace at Filene's Basement - it cost $11 with the earrings included, and I wore it for my job interview too, and the dean complimented me on it and asked if it was turquoise, and I was like, I'm pretty sure it's plastic.

You looked great, and you seemed really comfortable!

(No specifics of how you did, but eee!)

Thanks! I felt nervous but I just kind of figured I could act nervous and be uncomfortable or I could rock that thing and be cool, calm, and composed.

Is it on at 7 or 7:30 here? I never remember!

It's 7:30 - Wheel of Fortune first, then Jeopardy!

Excellent, I will most definitely be watching!

I shall definitely try to catch that. (Tries to remember when I last turned on the TV...)

Hee, time to dust off the screen and dig the remote out of the couch! I'm planning on going TV-less myself when I move, actually.

I didn't plan it, I just somehow never seem to watch much anymore, except the very occasional video that I want the bigger screen for. But since I can get broadcast and don't need to pay for the signal, I don't have to make a conscious decision about it, like you probably have to do further west.

I do keep thinking I should watch more stuff on PBS at least, but it's so much easier to only watch a little bit of stuff on the computer so I can do something at the same time.

I don't actually own my own TV right now - just been using the roommate's - so I won't have one when I move and I don't really feel like buying one, at least not for a while. We'll see how it goes!

Whoa, that is some West Coast spoilers for real! Apparently anglaisepaon has seen it already due to the vagaries of syndicated television. I'm psyched!

Yay, go you! If it turns up on youtube, can you let us poor foreigners know?
kylegirl

Absolutely will let you know!

Haven't seen it yet(out here on Pacific time), but I told my friend Raj that I bet that you win at least one game due to hints(errors?) that you've dropped in LJ.

Yes, I said more than I should, especially to someone who knows a bit about how Jeopardy works! Another friend of mine figured me out when I said something about having lunch - he had been to a taping when his girlfriend was on and he knew that lunch comes AFTER the Wednesday show.

It seemed like you dominated the buzzer. I'd love to hear details on how you did that. Getting the timing down would be my biggest worry if I got the call.

And I have no help to offer there - just eventually I got the swing of it. I was vaguely panicky going into the first commercial break and didn't think I was ever going to get it, then it just clicked.

Did anything you studied come up in any of your games, or were you one of the people who watched frustratedly as it all came up in games before and after?
kylegirl

there were definitely a few things that I had studied that only came up in the games before and after... there were also some categories that came up before that I would have absolutely tanked on, though. That Woody Allen category on Tuesday would have been death to me!

My source in the US tells me you did well!

If you're very curious I'm going to try to post the show to youtube - but yes, very happy with how I did!

I watched! Congratulations! I had my whole family cheering for you. ;)

I won't say more until you post about your experience, but I'm really looking forward to reading about your impressions of the actual game.
