Good Valentine's Day morning!

iMAgiNiff... Results
I think we could have used our own personalities to answer yesterday's games without the celebrity, although I thought it was interesting that almost half of you think Alex Trebek is a cheerful host while others think that he's boring (or at least bored). I'm sure he'd be thrilled to see that the only thing he DIDN'T get a vote for was romantic. Chris K. gets a bonus point for submitting Alex Trebek as a celebrity to use.

Players: 34
iMAgiNiff #1:
iMAgiNiff Alex Trebek were a feeling. Which would he be?
1. Angry (1)
2. Tired (1)
3. Cheerful (13) - 1 point
4. Stressed (3)
5. Romantic
6. Bored (16) - 2 points

iMAgiNiff #2:
iMAgiNiff Alex Trebek were honked at by an impatient driver. How would he react?
1. Get out of the car and threaten the driver (1)
2. Ignore it and turn up the radio (6) - 1 point
3. Honk 'em right back (2)
4. Give a genuine apologetic wave (22) - 2 points
5. Record the license plate and call the police (2)
6. Wink and lick the window (1)

Synopsis: After a day in which most of southern Wisconsin saw less than 1" of snowfall, yet Milwaukee got 7.8" and the Chicago area saw 7-10", today looks quite different with more sunshine expected but colder temperatures behind yesterday's cold front. We'll see a small warmup Friday and Saturday, with a bigger warmup expected by the middle of next week. Happy Valentine's Day, Lisa!!
