Do you play HQ Trivia? It's a free app for your phone (iPhone at first, but they recently added Androids) that lets you play live trivia twice a day (once a day on the weekends) for actual cash prizes.

There is a $5,000 jackpot that gets split by however many people get all 12 questions correct. If 5,000 people win, everybody gets a buck - if 5 people win, everybody gets a grand!

I've been playing HQ unsuccessfully for MONTHS.  Usually I make it to Question 7-8-9, sometimes I flame out around 4, and my record was getting up to Question 11 before getting the last one wrong.


Yesterday, my life changed. A light shone down from the heavens, guiding my brain and fingers to choose the correct answers to all twelve questions and win the jackpot!

I honestly don't even remember most of the questions, but I do know that I felt pretty confident in most of my answers, there wasn't much pure guessing. My winning question?

Which of these women was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame first?

  • Diana Ross
  • Tina Turner
  • Aretha Franklin

I wavered between Diana & Aretha for just a moment before settling on Aretha, who is now my spirit animal, along with Robert DeNiro, who made a cameo appearance on the app.

By the way, in case you're wondering, 1,035 people won yesterday, so my jackpot was a staggering $4.83. But the important thing is that I WON.
