Well. I have been a seriously awful blogger of late; new job a couple of months ago, after 9 months of unemployment, plus Issues at home – it’s been interesting, and writing of any sort has been the last thing I’ve felt up to. (Except for drawing. My deep apologies to everyone I let down, and I owe you more than that.)
But what has prompted me to break my mostly-silence is … it came! I took the Jeopardy test in January, did marginally better than last time – and lo, there in my email, which I by happy coincidence opened during Ken Jennings’s return to the show, was “Jeopardy! Contestant Auditions in Boston on May 12th at 11:30 am”. And that there says it all. I’m so excited I could … write a blog post. I hoped, but I didn’t really let myself expect it. Next month! I’ve got studying to do – because I still stink at geography. And sports. And I’d better start putting a few dollars aside every paycheck, because in the unlikely event I get called the trip will cost me about $1000. But – I’m excited!
(Plus, I’ve only been to Boston once, and that was when I was about 16, for a Star Trek convention, and I didn’t see anything of the city – just Walter Koenig and a bunch of geeks. So – yay Boston! Any suggestions about where to go and what to see and where to eat?)
