    #496 Stab to the gut true. Why is that?

  2. Oh god, I know. It’s always like, “So, Martha, it says here you once ate seventy-five cookies…” and Martha’s like, “Well, yes, Alex, it’s a funny story….I ate seventy-five cookies to help raise money to send to the disaster relief fund…”

      So true. I once saw one (I SWEAR) where Alex talked to the guy about the fact that, at family functions, the doesn’t talk to anyone. It was torment.

  3. My favorite Alex Trebek story was that he had to put on underwear to fend off someone entering his hotel room. Wait. Maybe that’s not such a great story.

  4. I hate that show. HATE.

      This makes you a person of intrigue in my eyes. I would not have pegged you as a Jeopardy Hater.

    People still watch Jeopardy?

    JJill should offer discounts for buying clothes when you are in the store wearing their clothes. Because I would CLEAN UP. This is why I shop almost exclusively online. A) don’t have to go to the mall which is a four letter word in my world and B) did I mention I don’t have to go to the mall? Which I can never do without my entourage anyway. I have never met two men who love to shop at the mall more than my husband and child. Their love is in direct and opposite proportion to my extreme dislike of being there.
