I'll take Intimidation for $200, Alex.

Once upon a time (about 11 years ago), in a land far away (about 25 miles from here) I tried out for Wheel of Fortune.  I made it to the second round testing and failed miserably.  It was awesome and fun to try.  The Jeopardy! bus rolled into town a short while later and I let someone convince me that I would just be wasting my time.  Like a weak dumbass, I listened and did not even try.

I have another shot at Jeopardy!  Tonight at 8:00 pm I'll be taking the online Jeopardy! test.  I AM STOKED!  It's only 50 questions and spelling doesn't count ("but try to be accurate" the rules state).  

You don't have to answer in the form of a question either.  This is the area I have the most trouble with.  I can shout answers at the TV like I've been touched with some kind of "special" but I generally forget about the question part.  If I actually do make it to the show, Alex would spend a great deal of time marking my answers WRONG and possibly just duct tape my mouth shut to speed up the game.

You can go here and register to take the test.  The test schedule is based by location so East Coast is tonight and you'd better get to steppin' to make the 8:00 deadline.

I just hope I can beat Junior to the computer tonight!
