23rd in cancon!! my highest ml finish ever (and only my third finals)

definitely helped by the amount of cancon trivia i have written for my own quiz over the years, and definitely helped by living in the french zone of canada, which at least gave me a chance on those questions (scored nearly 100 points on a money i thought was fairly easy considering how much my friends who have grown up here have talked about it in the past)

Wow, congrats! I am in the World Cinema final, highly doubt I will do that well.

Greg did pretty well.

i made the world cinema final but didn't notice until today!

Was wondering.

(We're Not) The Experimental Jet Set (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 7 November 2022 15:19 (one year ago) link

i did very badly - only got two answers right and didn't money one of them because it was a lucky guess

na (NA), Monday, 7 November 2022 15:28 (one year ago) link

Good luck everyone!

In the new season? Thanks!

mookieproof, Friday, 11 November 2022 18:57 (one year ago) link

argh, didn't even occur to me

Me neither! In fact in another context someone mentioned the below show recently which led to my wrong answer:

i also wrote larva, even as i knew it was wrong

The cardinal rule is to not leave it blank so writing a known wrong answer, while extremely painful, is still the done thing.

Y'all need to read more Lacan* if LJ is your way into imago!

* Actually on't read Lacan.

Rabbity Gainsborough (Leee), Friday, 11 November 2022 21:01 (one year ago) link

two weeks pass...

getting absolutely crushed this season

a bit of bad luck, but mostly just not knowing the answers

The original is still the greatest though:

Don't know what that picture is doing there though.

My ego has taken a real bruising as I've gone 0-3 on Math questions this season. On the plus side, I'm still mid-table, even though there's 1 point separating me from the relegation zone (not factoring in tiebreakers).

Rabbity Gainsborough (Leee), Thursday, 8 December 2022 18:54 (one year ago) link

My ego has…don’t quite know how to finish this sentence.

Enjoying working on my 1DS this weekend.

Silby and I did pretty well on Buster Keaton.

Cry for a Shadowgraph (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 24 January 2023 17:10 (one year ago) link

Now that I think of it, the first time I saw The General was at Silby's alma mater.

Cry for a Shadowgraph (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 24 January 2023 17:10 (one year ago) link

I've had some awful moneying this 1DS season -- off the top of my head, I've played at least 2 where I ended < 50%ile but could've finished as high as the 80th.

That said, congrats to Greg for winning one recently!

John Mayer McCheese (Leee), Friday, 27 January 2023 01:03 (one year ago) link

yeah nice bird knowledge!

Piven After Midnight (The Yellow Kid), Friday, 27 January 2023 04:48 (one year ago) link

If everything goes well with today's, I'll be in the Pop Culture Philosophy finals! Which is surprising to me, since I consider myself to be very bad at reading philosophy!

John Mayer McCheese (Leee), Thursday, 2 February 2023 19:58 (one year ago) link

I will probably be a frustrating 3rd in my group sadly

G. D’Arcy Cheesewright (silby), Thursday, 2 February 2023 20:10 (one year ago) link

I forgot to register for that one. Looked good.

Not doing great in the one I am in. Cross Town Traffic or whatever it is called.

And Your Borad Can Zing (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 2 February 2023 20:55 (one year ago) link

Greg monied a bit better than I did and beat me on Bubblegum.

three weeks pass...

Halfway point and not only am I above 0.500 but I'm also in the top 10, which just means there's a lot more room for me to fall.

Shartreuse (Leee), Saturday, 4 March 2023 17:40 (one year ago) link

Yesterday was big beer day.

Think Fast, Mr. Mojo Risin’ (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 16 March 2023 11:09 (one year ago) link

Not for me! (I missed thiamine.) In fact, I haven't scored a single 6/6 all season. If that holds, it would be the first season since LL63 in 2014 in which I didn't get at least one. Luckily, I've had plenty of 5/6 days and am in the middle of the pack as usual.

jaymc, Thursday, 16 March 2023 12:13 (one year ago) link

Well, my prediction is proving true, as I'm on a 6 game losing streak where half of the losses have been avoidable.

Shartreuse (Leee), Thursday, 16 March 2023 14:33 (one year ago) link

i've been doing better than usual this season, though i've been frustratingly stuck at fourth place for a while

na (NA), Thursday, 16 March 2023 14:46 (one year ago) link

four weeks pass...

I was in the 92nd percentile for the Urban Planning one-day, which sounds good until I tell you I was the librarian for the American Planning Association for six years.

I really lucked out and somehow made it into the Latinx finals.

Cashews Everything Around Me (Leee), Tuesday, 16 May 2023 16:47 (one year ago) link

Me too! I played all three MLs, and I would not have guessed that would be the one I'd do best in.

jaymc, Tuesday, 16 May 2023 17:13 (one year ago) link

i wished i had joined the latinx and midwest ones, i wouldn't have done too badly! i somehow limped into the lgbt finals and got absolutely bodied though, like bottom 50

through 21 matches i have 101 CAA

the top TCA-scorer in my rundle has gotten 100 right

ffs

mookieproof, Thursday, 22 June 2023 19:20 (ten months ago) link

Not sure how it happened, but I'm sitting at the top of an A rundle for the first time ever this late in the season. I think maybe the league that I was moved into last season (along with Leee and NA) is a little less competitive? Anyway, I've probably jinxed it by mentioning it, but still crossing my fingers.

jaymc, Thursday, 22 June 2023 19:33 (ten months ago) link

Rooting for you from the cheap seats in the middle of C, jaymc.
