One's past continues to appear on the Internet. Today I received an LJ message from a Jeopardy fanboy, part of an online community that maintains a Jeopardy message board. One of their guys (regardless of the pseudonyms, I see them all as guys) posted a very blurry video of my 1985 Jeopardy appearance. It is so wavy and vertigo-inducing that I could watch only the first few minutes before feeling sick to my stomach. I swear it's the bad quality of the video capture, and not the frustration over (spoiler) losing the game.

Anyway, if you can stand it, check it out:

The date the show was aired only now rang a bell--it's Back to the Future Day! The Jeopardy show I taped in August aired on the very date--October 25, 1985--that the DeLorean set off on its journeys into the past and future.

IT is scary--I'm pretty easy to find, I guess.

"science" question. . .it was the Greek sun-god that clinched it for me!
I still blush, though, when I think of the gaffe I committed because of that Final Jeopardy. At the Academy, we had a TV-watching party in the Officer's Club. The Admiral's wife did not attend. The next day, she and some other upper-echelon wives asked me about the game. They said "was the Final Jeopardy answer hard?" I stuck my foot firmly in mouth and blurted, "Oh, no--it was EASY--not like science at all. Anyone would know it." Then I gave the answer--to three blank, annoyed faces. None of them had any idea. . .
