I’ll take “Win, win” for 1600

December 2, 2010

I now have an actual TV for the first time in three years (Roku + Netflix = love), and it’s sort of comforting to know that one can still come home from work late, grab a beer and some chips & salsa, and tune in to Jeopardy! at 7.30. Hello, 1995 – minus the beer, and trade work for school.

Anyway, Alex Trebek (does that man age?) was doing his schtick where he has the contestants relate some anecdote, amusing or otherwise, of their life. This young grad of 20 tells everyone that her unusual hobbies include sewing, crochet, knitting and cross stitch, making her the youngest old lady there is. Trebek rolls eyes with “rriiiiight”. So, either the “trend” of home sewers is now so mainstream it’s a Jeopardy! aside, or it’s come full circle and in geekdom for good.
