Wheel of F_rt_ne

WHEEL.....OF......FORTUNE!!!!  Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo doooooooooooooooo!

You know you watch this like it and you scream at the tv during the whole show.

"Don't buy an A!  That's a gimme!"

"S!  Come on!  Everyone knows there are at least 3 Ss on the board!"

I have a friend of a friend that was ON Wheel of Fortune and she was waaaay taller than Pat Sajak, which, I am sure, is not a surprise to you all.  She won some money and said it was fun.  I would personally, never go on this show.  I don't know if my brain just doesn't work in this fashion, but I never can guess these.  I am one of those dumb people who would not get it if only two vowels were left.

Yesterday:  Phrase

Answer:  I wanna hold your hand sanitizer

I had no idea.  I just want to be Vanna.  As a career.  How amazing would that be?  You just turn the letters...that are ALREADY lit up for you, look pretty, with a team of stylists and trainers backing you up, and applaud others for being stupid.  PS You are a B list celebrity which means you can eat a restaurants without too much hassle, but still make bank.  Sign me up.

Oh man I love me some Wheel Of Fortune! I am usually decent at it too. I have the game on my Ipod! Remember when they used to give out big prizes at the final puzzle? Now the topper anyone gets is like $30K. Sure that's a lot but I remember they gave out the big amounts more frequently.

Didn't they (waaaaay back in the '80s) also used to give out weird stuff like microwaves and lamps shaped like animals?

I do love the Wheel. Although I'm with you, Iris: I would totally choke under pressure if I was actually on the show.

(Doesn't Vanna just push a button now, vs. actually TURNING the letters? I mean, really -- was it THAT hard?)

They are looking for people to send in tapes of your impression of Vanna. I watch it all the time, and you should send in a tape. It's be fun to see you jumping for the letters in the top row of a long puzzle. ; )

I loves me some Wheel of Fortune. Unlike Jeopardy, I actually have a chance with this show!

And you are right, Vanna has the BEST job ever.
