congrats! i was one of the many, the NOT proud. lol i also took both tests and flunked. mind you, i am a triva WIZ at home. on millionaire, jeopardy (okay, well i get about 50% of those questions right, but hey, that shows for mensa members!), and are you smarter than a 5th grader. seriously, no lie, i really do get about 80% of the answers right when i'm watching millionaire at home. my kids, friends and other family members have repeatedly told me i should go on "one of those shows" (meaning quiz-based gameshows). but i've never had the opportunity to try out until yesterday.

when you said that we were all crammed together in that testing area, boy oh boy are you right! VERY close together. regardless, now i know what is expected of you if you try out for millionaire so its all good. i was initially disappointed that i didn't make it but i am just thankful for the opportunity to do something i had wanted to do for a long time. who knows? maybe i'll try out again someday... atleast now i will be semi-prepared.

oh, thanks for letting me know what happened after most of us cattle were herded out of there. i was curious.

and good luck! i hope you win lotsa moolah! if i couldn't hopefully SOMEONE from the sunflower state will! :)

As one of the other folks representing Lawrence, I agree with Jon. I had confidence in my movie trivia knowledge, but didn't dream I could make it to the final round. But I did, and now I, too, am waiting for a postcard.

Never pass up an opportunity to try, even if it seems impossible. You might surprise yourself.
