    Jeopardy test tonight

    Anyone taking it? I'm not eligible because I auditioned in July, but I'm going to try to look at the questions somehow. I was going to kind of audit the test, but I have class tonight and won't be home.

    I keep hoping they call me. I've seen two people from my audition group on the show.

    I'm going to take it on Thursday but i'm honestly frustrated. I've been taking the online test now since it began and I'm always over 40 right and even after a decade I can't get a call. I just want a damn audition already.

    I thought I only got 41 or 42 right on the online test last year, which is fewer than I have in years, but I was still invited to the auditions. I'm fairly sure I got 45 on the in-person test, and they implied that was what mattered the most (something different from my other audition). But I'm still sitting by the phone.

    A guy who didn't dress up and shouted through the auditions ended up on the show and won a couple of games. He didn't dress up for the show, either. He was a stand-up comedian, fwiw.

    Where does one find this test?
    I'm just going to go find a cash machine.

    A week in the past. It's a live test on Jeopardy.com that they give three nights a year. This year's was last Tuesday through Thursday.

    I audited it Wednesday (they let you do that, which I didn't realize) and probably missed six or seven, including 4 I absolutely knew. I'm still mad at myself for not remembering Dave Eggers' name until after the test. I would have done the other two nights, but I had class.

    I had a bad cold. No way could I focus enough to take the test last week. I was struggling with the crosswords.

    Still trying. 45/50 right tonight, the best I've ever done, I think. As a bonus, the last question was about the Dodgers losing, always a happy topic.

    Damn Marc. 45 is fantastic. I was sitting in the mid-30s and don’t know that I could’ve done much better.

    Just finished it. I know I missed three for sure; left two blank and guessed wrong on another. Maybe missed one or two more, but probably the best I’ve ever done. Have never been called for a live audition.
