"Who Are Three People Who Have Never Been In My Kitchen, Alex?"

Michelle is reading “Microserfs” and took up the meme in that book of defining herself by her dream Jeopardy categories

Cool idea – here's mine:

The Beatles
Useless Pop Culture Trivia
21st Century American Politics
Potent Potables
Opera (because there's always that one category where you go, “ah, crap”…even when picking for yourself, I guess!)

Here's a good article on “how to win on Jeopardy” in case you ever make the cut.

    My categories:
    20th Century Authors
    Oscar Winners
    Dewey Decimal Classification (c'mon, someday this will be a category)
    Harrison Ford Films
    Oh my God, I can only come up with four. Am I this shallow?

    I had difficulty narrowing it to seven, because there is also the general:
    * Stuff you didn't know and didn't know you wanted to know, until Michelle told you
    * Good Movies
    to the specific:
    * The X-files
    * Bus routes in Ontario
    Thanks for the shout out yo. 😛
    What would Pace's categories be?

    My picks felt pretty narrow too – god, is all I know pop culture trivia? Books, tv, music, movies, repeat? Sheesh.

    Plus seven is cheating because Jeopardy only has six categories! Maybe one was your Final Jeopardy category that you're guaranteed to get?
    Here's Pace's:
    Sleep Deprivation Techniques
    Colours of Poop
    Dr. Seuss

    I like it. Pace sounds fun.
    Mr. Coupland gives everyone 7 in the book, what's a girl to do?
