Much to my astonishment, Ken Jennings told me tonight that he reads my blog! And how did I talk about my blog with Ken Jennings? Well, it came up because I was wearing my "I'm blogging this." t-shirt to the Ken Jennings book signing and trivia contest at Third Place Books tonight with hubby-Eric.
My astonishment was so great I forgot to ask Ken my favorite trivia question: "What was the first United States team to win the Stanley Cup?"
I'm sure he knows, but it's still my favorite trivia question. Also, Ken, Tom Chambers? Eh, hubby-Eric did fine in your trivia contest, getting 18 of the 20 questions right. He only missed Tom Chambers and Mt Adams (he had a brain-freeze on that one). And he thanks you muchly for the $30 in gift certificates he ended up getting thanks to you!
As is traditional now, Torvald posed with Ken. I would guess that Ken is now one of the most recognizable people Torvald has posed with.
I also convinced hubby-Eric to pose with Ken. Maybe this will give him that tiny bit of luck he needs to finally get onto Jeopardy!
And lastly, as we were leaving the store, I realized that the information sign was in a very nice spot with regards to Ken Jennings. I couldn't resist taking a picture.
