Geek Streak Ends

| | Comments (1)

I'm a little sad.

After winning 74 times in a ROW and raking in a total record-shattering amount of $2,520,700, he finally lost last night.

Yeah, yeah, mock me all you like, but I am in awe of anyone who is able to do something really well. (Actually, I'm quite easily impressed, so even moderate talent is highly regarded by me.) And watching Ken in action on that quiz show was quite remarkable.

I know he's a bit of a geek (I love geeks, though!), but he was such a gentleman throughout his time on the show.

And last night, when he lost to Nancy Zerg, a realtor from California, he bowed out with his usual good humour and grace.

Goodbye Ken Jennings! "Jeopardy!" just won't be the same without you, and I can't wait to see you on next year's Tournament of the Champs, when you will continue to kick quiz show arse.

is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
