Guess What I Talked to Alex Trebek About This Week? PIE.
So I've been a little busy this week -- too busy for a long post today.
This week, I flew to LA to be a contestant on Jeopardy! And though the title of the show Jeopardy! actually includes the exclamation point, you can assume the excitement is my own.
It was a lifelong dream and really fun and fascinating and contrary to my strong conviction at the time of taping I did not faint and that's all I can say about it now -- if you want to know what happened, tune in on March 25, 2011.
Oh, one more thing: I talked to Alex about pie. Pie!
And I think I need to make a pie inspired by Jeopardy! itself. What do you think should be in it?
And I do wish I had encountered in my play the category from this game:
I would have run it.
