Saturday we went to California Adventure with Stacy and Steve and some of her relatives who were visiting California.

I’m not sure how it happened, but I managed to get myself into the hot seat at Who Wants to Be a Millionaire – Play It! I made it up to the 64,000 point question before I crashed, but it was a heck of a lot of fun being up there with the audience cheering me on.

I got 10 collectable pins (one for every right answer I gave,) a hat for hitting 1,000 points, and a polo shirt for hitting 32,000. The grand prize for correctly answering the 1,000,000 point question was a three night cruise to the Bahamas for four. I knew I didn’t have a chance at going all the way, so I made sure to use all of my lifelines before I got taken out.

When I finished my run I went backstage to fill out paperwork and collect my winnings. The guy said they get a million point winner on average about twice a month. That’s pretty good for a show that runs five shows per day, just three days a week. I’m not allowed to play again for 30 days, but now that I’ve got the fire in me I think I’ll try to shoot for a million one of these days!
