I'm responding to Aye here, and will use this thread to post any news I get, good or bad.

He asked what I was doing to prepare.

There's a trivia site called alpaca that I've been using a little the last couple years. A lot of past Jeopardy people are on there. So the quizzes are sort of tougher than something like the general trivia apps.

I'm ramping up playing there some, just to get my brain going. I like how James suggested the children's department of the library for basic and digestible facts on a lot of subjects. Might do that.

I also have about 50,000 trivia cards from trivia pursuit sets. I'm going to start using them for every day flash card drills if Jeopardy confirms I'm still invited to audition. But haven't heard yet, though it's the first business day back from Easter week (and since I replied last Sat), so I'm giving it a few days.

I've got some three or four sets of trivia game cards I'd be happy to give you. Just say the word and I'll dig them out and tell you the names of the games/sets.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I've learned so much from reading random Wikipedia articles. Best of luck!

Good!

umm, you're leaving us hanging here with that "However, even though you ..."

... even though you pass all tests and requirements you may never be selected if we decide to be shitty" ???

Pretty much, yes. Lol.

Here's the next part.

Congratulations BBB! We are all very excited for you! Thanks for taking us along with you via your posts.

hehe... Maybe the lack of travel expenses is due to budget adjustments caused by James H's current run.

That's awesome, Babs! Best of luck on "Mock Jeopardy!" and the interview.

WPB used to be my old stomping grounds back in the day. I hope you have fun while you are there!
