Breakfast of Champions

Those Jeopardy get-to-know-me snippets after the first commercial break are always painful. I try to tune them out, but when I heard “propose” and “wife” on an episode last month (it’s taken me this long to figure out how to capture and upload a video from TV and it's still wonky) I opened my ears back up immediately.

No disappointments. Matt Cushman has quite the romantic tale involving a box of cereal and—yes, you guessed it—an engagement ring.

I’d like to poke a little more fun but no matter how cutely I get my hair cut with time it invariably morphs into Matt’s limp hairstyle. I cannot mock someone with a similar flat frazzled do (plus, the last time I mentioned a Jeopardy contestant, they went nuts in the comments).

    What is the most offensive dessert? My vote: Black and Tan ice cream from Ben and Jerry. For St. Pat’s, drank Black & Tans all night while thinking about the ’90s.

  3. Miss Ennui: I don’t think I’ve ever had a black & tan (ice cream or drink) but strangely the ’90s pops into my head more than it should. Sometimes I feel inexplicably angry at the ’90s.
