Got the Veeps.

I did the Vice Presidents “game” on Sporcle, getting all the vice presidents correct (not in the same order) for the first time.  It took me just under four minutes (out of 10 allotted).  This one took a while to get.  Now I need to get Presidents and their Vice Presidents by number — I have a flashcard set that does those that I started working on a week or so ago. 

I’m getting one or more additional answers right on each Jeopardy now that I can attribute to the training I’ve been doing.  I still need to get a handle on the arts categories, and I’m finding a fair number of categories about chemistry and physicists that are biting me.  Part of what’s biting me in those categories is guessing at high-valued answers and getting them wrong. 

I get to go to the Teacher Learner Academy Awards thing tonight.  Mostly I’m going because I really like the teacher, and to see what it was that I did to get nominated for this award.  Emily is going with me.

  1. I’ll be curious to hear what you were nominated for!! And that’s really great about the Jeopardy, knowledge, even when it’s trivia type stuff is a great thing.

  2. As far as I can tell, it’s for helping facilitate groups of the Campus Community Coalition for my last Communication class. It was a nice program, but they gave out something over 150 awards — almost everybody at the program got one. They gave me a water bottle, and Emily got a stapler (they had left overs).

  3. Wow! That’s a lot of awards!!! But at least you got a free water bottle and stapler! It’s nice that they do that, it probbly enourages people.
