    Very entertaining. Night! I’m a jeapordy master too. I never went to audition though.

    I tried to do millionaire but they kept asking Wibledon questions…sheesh

    I have been tagged recently, not once, but twice for the same meme, and I haven’t been able to get down to it.
    I think I suffer from primal memephobia, deep down inside 🙂
    I think you’re very brave, and you haven’t done the job half-heartedly.

    Your post reminded me of 2 things:

    – I once had to ask an autograph to Michel Platini, who was then in his early football (read: soccer) days. I say “had to” because I didn’t want to, but I was made to, as I was then working in a hotel where the whole team was staying. I hate football (read: soccer, but read football and any team game)

    – We have a similar TV game in France called “Questions pour un champion” and like you, answering questions was easy. Yet I could never have mustered enough confidence to go through test.
    I always enjoy my visits to your blog, even though I don’t always comment.

    Okay, I’ve done this meme and I have seen others. I must say, I give you the award for the best 6 weird things. This is because it is really a very personalised list. I mean, many of us may have pecularities in our eating habits but only you have been kissed by Randy at 10. Great, well thought out list. Gives great insight into who you are.

  4. Stepping Over the Junk says:

    We need to talk!! I spent 8 summers in Buena Vista, Co, climbing 14ers and rafting the Arkansas! I know Leadville WELL!

  5. Diana says:

    Good thing his name was Randy and not Petty. Parents really need to be more careful with naming their kids. Had they put Guy Noble on his birth certificate, they’d probably be living in a very nice home that he bought them instead of his living in their basement in his underwear.

  6. Glamourpuss says:

    Good selection – like you, I find life pretty weird on the whole so would have no idea what to write. However, number one is more creepy than weird – Pippi Longstocking? Cute? Is Randy serving time now by any chance?


  7. Lee says:

    I keep trying to tell you people, I’m very, VERY normal!!

  8. furiousBall says:

    You know that was Brad Gillis’ greatest era – what a coif

  9. Dave says:

    Well… You are certainly not weird. I must admit however, that your Superbowl photo and your profile photo doesn’t match so… which one is really you???? 🙂

  10. Steven Novak says:

    Night Ranger….hahahahahaha….

    The minute I saw the words Night Ranger I started laughing. 😉


  11. velvet girl says:

    Great list! What a well thought out and funny post. Genuinly Drafty… snort!

    Glad that you got to keep the placemat… after all, you were the one who had the guts to go and ask for it. 😉


  12. Jazz says:

    Night Ranger? Um… ok. Maybe you could make a killing if you sold the autographs on E-bay?

  13. mist1 says:

    Where is Randy now?

  14. Susan says:

    Night Ranger! Odd thing, I just got back from a break before I read this where “Sister Christian” was blaring on the radio. Cue twilight zone music. Thanks for coming by and I really hope your 4 y/o isn’t going to live through night terrors. It’s neither fun nor easy–more so I imagine for parents. Thanks for coming by the blog and feel free to drop by again!

    Hammer–So now we know: your intellectual weakness is Wimbledon…I’m filing that away for future use.

    Nightowl–“Primal Memephobia.” Ha! You have such great turns of phrase.

    Lone Grey Squirrel–I think I spent way too much time coming up with these six things. So thanks for appreciating them.

    Stepping Over–Leadville is too gorgeous, eh? I lived in Boulder, Co. Springs, Longmont, for a few years, so Leadville became a bit of a habit (watching 4th of July fireworks there in a snowstorm was pretty dreamy).

    Diana–You are so right about the power of naming. That’s why my kids are named Biggy McBucks and Givin’ It All To Mom.

    Glamourpuss–I agree that the whole Pippi Longstocking thing bordered on creepy. And not just because my mom bent a hanger over my head.

    Lee–Hey, I would *never* imply, or state outright, that you’re weird. But this one is about weird things that have happened to you, making you a passive recipient of the weirdness…

    Furiousball–It scares me that you know the name Brad Gillis. But you are redeemed by being able to appreciate his hair.

    Dave–Hair and make-up do wonders for me.

    Steven–What’s so funny about Night Ranger?

    Velvet–That was my feeling about the placemat, too. Getters, keepers.

    Jazz–Or maybe I could make a killing selling that autograph to *you*? I sense a deep interest in Night Ranger here.

    Mist1–I’m thinking he might have grown up to become Dorky Dad. Heh.

    Susan–Radio stations still play Night Ranger? I might have to turn on the radio someday.

  16. actonbell says:

    LOL, great meme, Jocelyn! And a belated rabbit, rabbit to you!

  17. heartinsanfrancisco says:

    I’m sure those shows save their harder questions for auditions because if nobody knew the answers on the show, it would be too boring.

    I was just tagged for this meme, too, but I think it’s just 6 strange things about me. This one is more fun, and your answers were pretty unusual.

  18. Fresh Hell says:

    I use Sister Christian as retaliatory fire when someone tries to get a son stuck in my head. That or anything from Whitesnake. Or anything from the soundtrack to The Sound of Music.

    Your list weird things makes me think that we share a lot of parallel experiences with the strangers in life.

  19. Dorky Dad says:

    Mybad for being in an online coma for a few days. I missed this one.

    That said, I KNEW there was a reason why I tagged you … this was fantastic. Night Ranger??? What kind of syrup did they use?

  20. choochoo says:

    Mission accomplished *does saluting-handgesture-thingy*

  21. Diesel says:

    You can still rock in America, Jocelyn.

    I knew a guy in college who was a complete know-it-all and was always kind of a jerk to me for some reason. He was in love with a cute chick named Julia, whom I later married. A few years later he got on Jeopardy and lost. Ha!

    Congratulations, you’ve won the “one more blog that I need to waste my time on” award. I’m adding you to my blogroll.

  22. Jocelyn says:

    ActonBell–You have more fun with groundhogs than anyone I’ve ever met. Thanks for working my blog into your shadow-checking schedule.

    Heartsinsanfrancisco–Yes, I was thinking that must be the case–they have to save the easy questions for the real show. Yup. I like that rationale.

    Fresh Hell–I felt the same way when I visited your blog. Well, except for having a date last week and all (okay, I *did* have a date, but don’t tell my husband because he sometimes reads this blog. So if he’s reading this, “NO, NO, I didn’t have a date last week when I went out in my stilettos, reeking of Jean Nate!”

    Dorky Dad–You gave me a very fun assignment. As usual, I overthought it. Hey, I like your new Darrin/Dagwood photo. Heh-heh. Oh, and the syrup was Rockstar Raspberry, I’m sure.

    Choochoo–I’m heading over to yours now to see what you came up with. *Rubs knuckles together.*

    Diesel–That’s how I feel when I visit your blog. One day here, just after I sweep the kitchen floor, I am going to figure out how to compile a blog roll. And when I do, you’ll be on it. (you likey how I promise things I may never do?)

  23. Dan says:

    You are WEIRD!

    In my junior year of college, I spent a whole lot of late-night hours playing cribbage and drinking from a keg-o-liter in the dorm room of my posse

    You are a NERD! 🙂 I like how you try to introduce the keg into this to add a bit of coolness. There was no keg, was there? Admit it. There was only cribbage, right? 🙂

    Just teasing!

  24. Girlie Monkey says:

    Hey Jocelyn,
    Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. I am not usually as dramatic as I was in my post today. Must be something in the air 🙂
    Happy Monday,
    Girlie Monkey

  25. lushgurl says:

    ROFLAO… I am sssooo glad you stopped by to say hi!Now I have a new Blog to stalk!!! I’d add you to my links list, but everytime I add someone ,it doesn’t work right, does THAT count as something weird? AW, I know the answer to that one- it means I am the weird one!!
    Loved your post, come back to see me soon… 😉

  26. curiositykiller says:

    Ok. I love the pippy longstocking, and jeopardy things about you. They was totally unique. I’m always the one blanking out in front of the TV mumbling possible answers and do the funky chicken when I actually get one right.

    I just might have to start blogstalking you too. Ahem – I didn’t mean say that out loud.

  27. velvet girl says:

    The kids seem on some sort of permanent probation. Thanks to mommy brain, I can never remember the things that keep them from being sent up the river, but I recall that it involves laughing on my part.

    I have a love/hate relationship with my digital SLR, too. Just not as funny.

    Great post!
